Adventurer Harnos joins us again in BDO Monthly with two of their screenshot sessions! We were amazed at the details of the gargoyles and the contrasts between the two Queens perfectly highlighted by Harnos! Under the moon's shadow in Delphe Knights Castle, will the Gargoyles protect the two Queens of Thorns in Calpheon? What do you think?

▶ My gargoyles - Harnos

Adventurer Mirmulnir comes back to this month's issue with a Blue Dream or their Mythical Doom! The deep blue flames on their hooves when stomping or when summoning the Shadows of Hellfire, the Mythical Doom really looks mythical!

Adventurer Unikornu showed us a glimpse of their Land of the Morning Light Solbaram Neowa House, in a beautiful session of screenshots that let us see all the nooks and crannies! We hope you can visit Unikornu's residence and take a break from your adventures!

This month's BDO Monthly brings back the modeling category with Wuju, the administrator of the Magnus made by Adventurer Chiraviks! We think they got their snot face just right! If you could make a doll from anyone in Black Desert, who would you choose?
