In a different world, the Royal Monstrological Society holds an esteemed position. Members of this society are the most renowned and respected experts regarding monsters and monster lore throughout the empire. Oh, to be a part of it! Fortunately, ONE applicant is accepted each year to join their ranks and – in this new Richard Garfield design – players will find themselves competing for that single spot by proving themselves worthy by collecting a magnificent menagerie of monsters to be presented at the Society’s annual banquet: the Carnival of Monsters.
