The Dark Journal
Author, Dark Journal

So yeah, I've been writing The Dark Journal for the Explorer's Society and I do hope you all enjoy them.  Recently just released part 2 and hoping to have something like around 10 parts in total by the end of the year.

I've not read these really in-depth yet, but I have to say the first one was pretty interesting for it's different approach to vampire-themed threats without invoking the more traditional style of vampire.

Thank you for finding them interesting. I've been looking at creating monsters that draw from various sources for inspiration. 
Part of me is always worried some might find them rather dark for a 7th Sea game, but I liked the idea of contributing a supplement that opened more options to the game.

Care to list the monsters you've covered thus far?  No specifics, I just like to know what I'm getting.  :)

Each document outlines three monsters.
The first one covers Viscera Suckers, which range from the Severae (inspired by the myths of the mananaggal and penangallan), the Schrankenmaus (a tiny unassuming mouse with horrific surprises), and the Iragila (a vampiric monster that attacks sleeping people).

The second one covers Breeders, which range from a plant with much more insidious... body horror secrets, a symbiotic organism that tries to lend a hand, and a bone-cracking stalker that uses humans as hosts (inspired by H.R. Giger's Alien).

More are in the works.

Interesting.  Sounds like a lot of stuff I'd love to have for my Witch Hunter game!

But since we are taking a break from that, I'm really trying to steer the 7th Sea game away from that style of play.

Now, Sea Monsters OTOH...
