Stibbles Codex of Companions In July of 2016, my group’s passion for role playing led us to make our first piece of content on a shared YouTube channel. We had no plans to make any sort of career out of it, we just wanted to crack jokes and teach lessons to other tables. Two years later, in October of 2018, I decided to quit my lengthy trail of dead end jobs and make my own channel, Runesmith. I had a couple bucks in my bank, no followers, and about a month to make it or break it. Due to incredible support from the tabletop gaming community, that leap allowed me to make connections with other creative minds, and eventually form Eldermancy to create our first book: The one you have in your hands!

I used to chase the pipe dreams of being a writer or a character designer

as a kid, learning to draw and write poems or short stories during almost all of my free time. The fact that I’ve been granted the creative freedom by an overwhelming 6,434 backers to make a bestiary of my own monsters is a blessing I couldn’t even begin to repay in kind. I hope the contents of this book meets and exceeds your expectations for a codex of companions, and that Eldermancy is allowed to continue to provide resources to enrich your creative experiences and time you spend with friends.

The over 100 unique companions in this book pull inspiration from

global folklore, mythology, media, real world animals, and original concepts from my own mind! The purpose of this codex, and every monster inside, is to strengthen the bonds between your characters and their interests, as well as your friendships with the players around you. All of us at Eldermancy, especially myself, c
