As I said on Flickr, try to make it original and give it types of creatures that aren't seen too much in books. So my input is Gryffons, some kind of giant subterranean creature, and SEA MONSTERS. Sea monsters sea monsters sea monsters. Oh did I mention sea monsters? Huge, terrifyingly massive sea monsters. Creatures of size that scares you to think about. I'm thinking maybe around the size of or a little bit bigger than the kraken from Pirates of the Caribbean. I have a fascination with aquatic life, I don't know why. I'm imagining ships that have some kind of huge ballista with giant harpoons, like a medieval minigun turret to defend against these things. Also, creepy monsters on land that would have a special class of trooper in the royal army to fight it, like a special monster hunter class with huge spears and axes and stuff. Also, their could be a special tribe of mountain/cliff dweller people who tamed and rode the Gryffons. And also, Corinthian helmets! These most noble of creatures are made of metal and beautify, protect, and awesomeify the heads of the royal soldiers!
I hope this helps, Ieuan!
Oh and by the way, add huge sea monsters
