Imbelnhi’s Bestiary illustrates a compendium of creatures that inhabit the fantasy world of Tamarra. Game enthusiasts and players of the role-playing game Beyonder purchase this book as a means to learn from and immerse themselves in the world of Beyonder. This book is a compendium of illustrated beasts from this imagined world, coupled with stories about each character. We created the short tales that follow each illustrated beast, an important feature by designing artwork that envisions aged parchment paper, serving to give some reality and humanity to the book. This book is one of the focal points of the collection of materials we created for Beyonder. We also two books: Imbelhni’s Bestiary & Beyonder, the Science of the Six, and www.fnbgames.com
