  • Pixie

    Pixies are described in the Monster Manual as “standing barely a foot tall and resembling diminutive elves with gossamer wings like those of dragonflies or butterflies, bright as the clear dawn and as luminous as the full moonrise.

    Curious as cats and shy as deer, pixies go where they please. They like to spy on other creatures and can barely contain their excitement around them. The urge to introduce themselves and strike up a friendship is almost overwhelming; only a pixie’s fear of being captured or attacked stays in its hand. Those who wander through a pixie’s glade might never see the creatures, yet hear the occasional giggle, gasp, or sigh.

    Pixies array themselves like princes and princesses of the fey, wearing flowing gowns and doublets of silk that sparkle like moonlight on a pond. Some dress in acorns, leaves, bark, and the pelts of tiny woodland beasts. They take great pride in their regalia and beam with joy when they are complimented on their ensembles.”

    In this episode, we are joined by Matt Brown.

    Matt (he/him) is a video producer, streamer and professional dungeon master from Melbourne Australia. You may know him from Split the Party and its self titled Actual play series which has just wrapped its 4th season, The TTRPG themed morning show Good Morning RPG on twitch, or their past chaotic shenanigans reacting to their cast member George on the latest Australian season of Beauty and the Geek. He’s also a professional dungeon master who you can hire for your games or corporate events at DungeonMasterForHire.com.au 

    You can find his details at @NoFunBrown and his channel Split the Party on both YouTube and Twitch through @split_theparty on twitter.

    For the AP, we were joined by Matt's Split the Party castmates, Benji Knapton and George Goldfeder.

  • Mind Flayer

    The Monster Manual describes Mind Flayers as “the scourge of sentient creatures across countless worlds. Psionic tyrants, slavers, and interdimensional voyagers, they are insidious masterminds that harvest entire races for their own twisted ends. Four tentacles snake from their octopus-like heads, flexing in hungry anticipation when sentient creatures come near.”

    The Monster Manual describes unicorns as creatures with “a single spiraling horn of ivory whose magical touch can heal the sick and the injured. Its ears catch the words and whispers of the creatures that share its domain, and it knows the tongues of elves and sylvan folk.

A rakshasa’s true form combines the features of a human and a tiger, with one noteworthy deformity: its palms are where the backs of the hands would be on a human.”

  • Cambion

    The Monster Manual describes Cambions as “the offspring of a fiend (usually a succubus or incubus) and a humanoid (usually a human). Cambions inherit aspects of both parents, but their horns, leathery wings, and sinewy tails are hallmarks of their otherworldly parentage.”

    We are joined by Anthony Rapp.

    Anthony is a lifelong geek and actor, who now has the great fortune of living his best geek and actor life by appearing as Commander Paul Stamets in Star Trek Discovery. He also has enjoyed a resurgence of DnD love, having played as a kid, but not again until the middle of 2020, thanks to COVID-mandated Zoom sessions. He can be found on Twitter at @albinokid.

  • Nothic

  • Couatl

    Season 2 of Kill Every Monster launches with the Couatl!

    The Monster Manual describes the Couatl as “benevolent serpentine beings of great intellect and insight. Their brilliantly colored wings and gentle manner speak to their celestial origins.”

    We are joined by Carlos Cisco.

    Carlos, whose pronouns are he/him, is a newly minted narrative designer with work on the DMs guild, #iHunt, and in MCDM’s ARCADIA. Or it feels new because time got real elastic during those early days of the pandemic. His primary craft is television writing but unlike design work his ascent was not quite so propulsive, spending the past decade clawing his way up the ladder to find himself recently as a writer on Star Trek: Discovery. In the immortal and often maligned words of the Enterprise theme song “It’s been a long road, gettin’ from there to here…”

    He can be found most easily on Twitter at @carlos_cisco.

    We were also joined this episode by Alejandro Torres, an archaeologist, DM, and writer from Chicago. 

    Alejandro is writing his own Maya-themed world setting, and planning a podcast to discuss Mesoamerican representation and celebrate Latinx/Indigenous creators in the TTRPG space. He plays Milo the Halfling Fighter on the Adamo_AS and Morphos_XL Twitch channels every other Wednesday. He loves to chat about Maya archaeology, podcasting, and TTRPGs on Twitter at @Tonal_teka.
