I like to think of Dungeon Fantasy as a combination of Hack n' Slash video games like Diablo, Dungeon Siege, and Torchlight, and some what silly anime such as "Slayers" or "Rune Warrior Louie" with a splash of Conan, Black Company and Stormbringer books.

It is the only genre where I don't punish my players for saying "100 Skeleton Warriors? Great! I run to the middle of them and start hacking!"

I have a High Fantasy/Cinematic/Wuxia campaign where the characters are over the top but they suffer damage and consequences just like in the real world. For that I use GURPS 4e.

On the topic of DF Monsters I would like to see as many of them as possible art or no art. Two things that I have always found disappeared from the local shop was adventure modules and bestiaries. The best Monster Manual that TSR ever published was the 2nd edition The Monstrous Compendium, it's only real flaw was it was hard to organise alphabetical order. However despite that it made it cheap enough for them to fly out lots of monsters quickly (although some quality control on that would have been nice).

DF Monsters is no longer DF13, it is now it's own (sub)line, so it will be DF Monsters 1.
As for the status, last update (Kromms LiveJournal, Friday) was that all of the Art was in, so maybe in the next few weeks?

DF13, will I believe be Loadouts, it's in the production queue, so hopefully in the next couple of months.

That's right!! Certainly there're a plenty of monters that can be "converted" from D&D to GURPS Dungeon Fantasy! Just one book is not enough.

If you're needing monsters now, grab Creatures of the Night, easily the best monster manual I've ever run across. The original, 3e book is great and requires minimal conversion. I haven't tried the 4e books, but they look to be at least as awesome.

Dungeon Fantasy items due out in the next couple of quarters, in roughly chronological order (I cannot venture dates, so please don't ask):
Dungeon Fantasy Monsters 1¹
Dungeon Fantasy 13: Loadouts
Dungeon Fantasy 14: Psi
Dungeon Fantasy Adventure 1²


1. Dungeon Fantasy Monsters is a subseries of Dungeon Fantasy, and will use its own numbering scheme.
2. The same goes for Dungeon Fantasy Adventures.

Anyway, I'd put the second and third as Real Soon Now :D
