Professor Gordian's Grimoire contains 148 pages of monsters described and statted as found in the Fellowship of the White Star campaign including dozens of new monsters. There is a plethora of phenominal artworks including over 20 from the supremely talented artist Jesse Cutler, who did the awesome dragon on the front cover.
When sold at Origins 2009, the player base was ecstatic about the detail it adds to the campaign setting.
The Fellowship of the White Star campaign is set in semi-historic earth 1905-1914 with a horror atmosphere that is hidden from the view of the common people. In this version of earth, magic still exists in a limited form and the players will create heroes to investigate suspicious events and battle evil supernatural foes and their malevolent plots.
Envision western cowboy heroes battling zombies in mines, archeologists investigating tombs in Egypt, British soldiers weeding out voodoo cults in Jamaica, Arctic explorers seeking out the Yeti, City detectives investigating strange crimes, etc... It is an ongoing campaign that focuses on role-playing, investigation and horror. That isn't to say there isn't combat, it just isn't the primary focus.
The 1905 campaign year ended on 12/31/08 and we had 23 modules for it that were set in Russia, Japan, Roumania, France, Gibraltar, England, Africa, Australia and the good 'ol USA. Players interacted with historic figures such as Rasputin, Henry Ford, JP Morgan, Tsar Nicholas, Cochise, and Mata Hari. There are 20 modules for 1906. Modules sold separately from the campaign and monster books.
