[Monsters] Critters, Creatures & Monsters

Post by Gawain_VIII » Tue Jul 01, 2008 4:33 am

This chapter is complete. I post it here for reference/completeness.

Chapter 9: Critters, Creatures & Monsters
“She was a great beast, with a head tha’ loom’d out o’er the water like a magnificent demon comin’ t’ get us! ‘Twas beautiful I tell ye!”
—Grimmik Ironsides, dwarven merchant, describing the fabled Lake Klintest monster


Many creatures roam the wilds and ruins of MYSTARA, from the terrible and deadly to the strange and wondrous. All of the creatures described in the MM can be found in the MYSTARA game setting. In addition, Monsters of the Known World describes more than one hundred creatures unique to MYSTARA. In this chapter, a handful of the most commonplace or iconic creatures of the MYSTARA game setting are described.

Seven creatures follow this introductory blurb. They are intended to be a sampling of some of the more iconic Mystaran creatures of various types (monster, plant, animal, template, etc). They are the Actaeon, Archer Bush, Chevall, Hypnosnake, Nosferatu, Panther, and Sirenflower.

An interesting choice of monsters. I like that the Cheval and Nosferatu are included since they appeared in Gaz1 and Gaz3. It doesn't get more Mystaran than that! :) Actaeons are also a personal favorite!

Please make sure that as many monsters as is appropriate have a Level Adjustment, so that GMs can allow players to use them as a playable monster race.

Actaeon, Cheval and maybe even Nosferatu could make for interesting PCs, even if the LA would likely be high for them. :)

Will you be including updated stats for the monsters in the Mystara Monster book from A&D 2E?

Will you be creating descriptions of how each of the MM1/d20 SRD monsters fit in to the Mystara setting?

Most importantly, will be you creating Mystara specific environmental encounter tables?

Yes; No, except as applied to the first question; and Yes. This material will be placed in the Monster Book, not the main CS book. The material for the monster book has already been written by TDA, and just needs to be compiled. Unfortunately, I've been finding it difficult to set aside the time neccessary to write anything, let alone compile 300+ monsters into a single manuscript.

Is there any chance of any uncompiled/unfinished work to be uploaded somewhere?

It could be useful to those of us interested, and perhaps interest new volunteers in helping finish it off..

That is indeed a nice list. I did find this what could be added:
