A world of grisly creatures by Jonathan Wojcik

   Currently in development as the setting for an independent pen & paper role-playing game, "Mortasheen" is a world I've been populating with my own original monsters for over a decade; an impossibly vast and impossibly ancient industrial city of unknown origins, Mortasheen is populated by mad geniuses and otherworldly mutants whose entire lives depend upon the bizarre powers of the bio-engineered monsters they modify and train. It's lawless, polluted and impossibly dangerous, but it's a world that also exists in surprising harmony. Its ghoulish, violent inhabitants aren't "bad guys" - being ghoulish and violent is just their way, and they're happy that way. They may inevitably die in the corrosive jaws of some biological abomination, but until then, every day is a gory, slimy adventure.

   Below is a list of every single monster in my current "canon" - just click their names for my original illustrations and cheesy profiles! You can also view my short flash cartoon set in the Mortasheen world and keep up with the newest monsters on this twitter.

To learn more about the upcoming roleplaying game, check out the official Q&A, the TVtropes page assembled by some of the staff, my Cover Art teaser, character teaser and the player race teaser!
