    Hi Ivan!

    I was wondering if any of the current expansions for Five Leagues From The Borderlands (Dark Woods Of Winter, Hope Of Glory, or The Goblin Hills) included any rules for large monsters? My Glorantha/Runequest-themed gamed could use some guidelines for larger Chaos nasties, crazy cattle, Jack O’ Bears, giants, Walktapi, etc in scenario building.

    Thank you for any guidance ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Or, you know, aย Five Parsecs supplement that has big scary alien monsters…

    Well, at that rate, I’d have to write rules for becoming a Sword of Humakt ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nothing off the top of my mind, but give me this weekend and I’ll see what I can suss out.

    After some thought, I think the following might be a way to create a single “big” monster as an encounter instead of one of the group encounters from the table given in the main rules. This generates a profile randomly, and uses the “Hit Points” rule from page 10 of the Five Parsecs Compendium.

    Speed: d6+3

    Combat Skill: +d3

    Toughness: d3+2

    Armor: d3-2

    Hit Points: d6+3

    Notes: Monster, ignore Morale dice

     

    Thoughts?

    Looks pretty solid, though I’d probably make Toughness a D3+3 instead and lower Speed to D3+3 to make it a bit more lumbering.

    Would be tempting to have a short list of “monster abilities” to add to it. Hmmmm

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Hmmm… I’ll try the basic thing with your edits, I will think on monstrous abilities after this seems to work well on it’s own.</p>
    Now, to build a walktapus…

    I am tinkering with something. Do you mind if I borrow or adapt this?
