Are you in the mood for love? Let your crush know with these monstrously cute valentines powerful enough to charm any person.
St. Valentine’s day is upon us, and like most days that originally began as a feast day to honor a saint who once provided care and succor to people in need, it has become synonymous with greeting cards and gifts and candies and special songs–but I’m not allowed to rant about the overcommercialization of Michaelmas, so instead let’s talk about how you can show your love for the people in your life with these monstrously delightful cards depicting your favorite, terrifying D&D monsters.

That’s right, your crush might be a humanoid, but these valentines aren’t. Featuring six classic D&D monsters–all of whom have star in the upcoming new expansion for Dungeon Mayhem–these valentines are sure to leave anyone feeling like they rolled a natural 20.
Celebrate the tradition that grew out of honoring one (or possibly two) people who ministered to people under persecution and blossomed into a celebration of courtly love which is, I’m sure, exactly what it is still today, by giving them an icon of a monster that would probably kill them. But in this case, love is the only thing you have to fear.
