Mechanical Muse and Eric Lofgren Team Up to Unleash Pathfinder® Compatible Monsters for Aetaltis

DEXTER, MI – May 28th, 2015 – Publisher Mechanical Muse and veteran illustrator Eric Lofgren are joining forces to deliver a series of new Pathfinder® compatible monster for the Aetaltis™ fantasy setting. Starting in June, Mechanical Muse will release a series of monsters in digital ebook format for use with the Pathfinder roleplaying game. The team at Mechanical Muse will base these creatures on the illustrations Lofgren creates during his ongoing Patreon campaign.

“Eric’s art is incredible,” said Marc Tassin, founder of Mechanical Muse. “They make for incredible inspiration when you’re creating new monsters.”

Eric Lofgren has enjoyed a long career creating illustrations for the roleplaying and collectible card game industries. His clients include some of the most prominent companies in the business including Paizo Publishing, Fantasy Flight Games, and Decipher Games. He recently launched a Patreon campaign to fund the creation of a collection of fantasy stock art.

“It’s really exciting to work with Mechanical Muse on this,” Eric said. “They’re putting out some incredible products, so it’ll be great to see what they do with my monsters.”

Mechanical Muse’s fantasy setting, Aetaltis, was launched in 2014 with the release of the Pathfinder compatible roleplaying adventure, THE TEMPLE OF MODREN. Their second book, THE HEROES OF THORNWALL Aetaltis sourcebook, released last month. Their most recent project is an ongoing Kickstarter for an anthology of short fiction set in Aetaltis. The book, CHAMPIONS OF AETALTIS, includes a dream team of best-selling authors, including Bill Willingham (creator of the FABLES comic book series), Larry Correia (NYT bestselling author of the MONSTER HUNTER series), Michael A. Stackpole (author of STAR WARS: ROGUE SQUADRON) and Ed Greenwood (creator of the Forgotten Realms setting).

The first monster in the series is planned to release on June 5th, 2015 and will be available through the Aetaltis website ( and
