Tooth and Nail

Examining the beastly, the noble, and the cosmically eyeballed…

Are you a fellow creature fanatic? This is a show for you. A lover of game design, or a DM in search of the perfect Bugbear encounter? This is a show for you. A fan of watching two lifelong friends bicker over how many fingers a Mind Flayer has? By Jove, this is a show for you.
