About Carnival of Creatures


Answer the call to adventure in a land of haunted hills and dark dangerous bayous.

Inside Carnival of Creatures, you’ll find 20 monsters straight from Louisiana myth, lore, and legend with vivid illustrations and robust descriptions and stats to help breathe life (or death) into your roleplaying experience. Based in the Fate Core system, these monsters can be used in your own adventures, or you can play one of our three provided regional one-shot campaigns using sample characters perfect for fighting monsters.

Spice up your table top with this collection of creatures from the hills of Natchitoches to the depths of the Crescent City!

About the Authors

Alexis Braud (she/her) has always been a little odd. She was born at Hotel D’ieu in New Orleans, and her family believes this is where all the trouble started. She grew up along Bayou Lafourche on the coast, but traveled for many years. It was among the outcasts and iconoclasts that Alexis honed her prodigious storytelling skills, often spinning fanciful yarns to avoid a harrowing death. After being rescued by her true love, she returned to her home along the bayou. Her days are spent tending her chickens, telling stories, making art, and herding her children.

Candice Huber (they/them) is a sixth generation New Orleanian who owns Tubby & Coo’s. They are a writing, editing, publishing, bookstore operations & technology, and virtual event consultant. They are also an instructor and dean for the Professional Booksellers School and the Membership Relations Coordinator for the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. Candice established TALES Publishing in 2018, and Carnival of Creatures is the publishing company’s fourth book.
