Amid the clouds, cold, and rain last weekend, I wrote a set of alternate rules for creating monsters for the BareBones Fantasy RPG. This set of rules are an algorithmic approach to generate a starting template for a creature. The template can then be tweaked as desired by the game master. Unsurprisingly, the approach I came up with varies quite often compared to the stock creatures in BBF. I suspect Larry and Bill hand crafted creatures as they were generated during the game’s design. Simply applying my approach will not generate creatures compatible with the stock creatures. It will create something close, often slightly under powered but occasionally well over similar monsters.
I didn’t spend a lot of time formatting the document so there isn’t a pretty PDF. Perhaps in the future I’ll do a variant with some layout or perhaps it’ll get done via the fanzine.
