Update on the #tenmonstersetting

This seems to be catching on! Here's a bunch of 10 monster settings.

If you want to jump in, go right ahead! The gist is, pick 10 monsters and build a mini setting around them.  How do they interact? Who was there first? Who wants what from who?

If you do one, tag it #tenmonstersetting

If you need a bit more help Chris Hall came up with this:
After I suggested this Chris Hall came up with this handy list: 
Pick a semi-intelligent humanoid (could be goblins, apemen, subhumans, etc.). Pick an undead. Pick an ancient fey race. Pick a giant/ogre/troll race. Pick a type of great wyrm or lizard. Pick something aerial. Pick something to lurk in the water. Pick something from another dimension (demon, gith, illithid). Pick a classic creature from mythology (medusa, satyr, minotaur, etc.). Pick some foul crawly thing that infests the underworld. Something like that. Then I’d give each a twist.

  1. You've got Bob's setting linked above twice. Do we stand at four or five entries so far?
