Here’s another monster conversion, this time the Sandman, which first appeared in 1e’s Fiend Folio, and was later taken into 2e’s Al Qadim setting in a boxed set called “Assassin Mountain”.

Netflix’s show Stranger Things is a love letter to 80’s entertainment. It takes Spielberg, Stephen King, John Carpenter, and George Lucas and puts them in a blender, creating a fantastic 8 hours of television.
