I still think he looks like the Dungeon Master.

Regarding that Lawbreakers trailer is it telling that the era of modern superheroes apparently fixates on making them into pay-for-slay serial killers?

More like making pay-for-slay serial killers into superheroes.  Apparently you can't just make em hordes of faceless normal people these days, you got to give them personality, a rocket pack, and physics defying equipment.  Roll Eyes

I don't follow, though I think I was recalling Overwatch who's theme is "world-renewing heroes ...who now arena combat because TF2 is the future. Forever."
Or Monday Night Combat. Or most MOBA's, apparently -complex, creatives universes; merry-go-round gladiatorial eternities.
Bizarre to think that Quake 3 and UT were essentially ground-breaking.

How did he get his eye back?

Could just be a Critical Injury (Head Trauma, half visual range), which would heal up in 1d4 months.

Or maybe the halfling on the cover of the Fantasy Craft book was from a scene as told by the halfling on the cover of the Adventure with obvious embellishments.



Halfling: "So there I was, battered, beaten and broken, my eye mangled beyond repair. But the giant, oh yes, the giant, he fared far worse."

Child: <raising hand> "Um, um, if your eye was gone, how come you still have it now?"

Halfing: "Quiet kid, I'm telling a story here. Suddenly, there was a blood-curdling roar as a creature descended from on high . . ."

Other Child: "But how could you see where it was . . ."

Halfling: <interupting> "I only lost one eye kid, now be quiet. Now where was I? Oh yes, as a creature descended from on high intent on finishing us all."

Man, formatting all these took a lot longer than I thought. Also, seeing it all put together and formatted, I definitely could've split this section up across a couple posts over a couple days. It's in blocked-off chunks now, but that's because I realized the post was way too long and I needed to compress the space; my original to-do list had no such divisions within this section.

A note: While some of these are based on OGL monsters, many are simply made from scratch based on existing lore (especially in these first couple categories) or simply a concept I had in mind. And as I menttioned earlier in this thread, even for those that are from the OGL, I lean more toward making from scratch and just using the OGL statblocks as a loose inspiration/reference rather than really using the OGL conversion guide extensively.

I'll be dividing my work up into the following categories, (though I might not necessarily do them in this order, and judging by this batch I may end up breaking some of these down further):
   General Classics (Myth, Legend, and Medieval Bestiaries)
   Fey
   Lycanthropes
   Youkai
   Cryptids & Fearsome Critters
   Constructs
   Undead
   OGL Dungeon Flora & Fauna
   OGL Overworld Flora & Fauna
   OGL Extraplanar Beings - Inner Planes
   OGL Extraplaner Beings - Outer Planes
   Literature & Film

I'm starting off with basically a catch-all for stuff based on real-world folklore that doesn't really fit into any of the next few more specific categories. I may also add a "Plants" category, if I come up with enough good concepts to fill that out as a category to itself (though right now all I have down is a couple OGL monsters, which may not all be worth having statblocks for anyway).

General Classics: Myth, Legend, and Medieval Bestiaries

The gold is secondary to retrieving his eye?

I suspect the dual attacks are an artefact of the original OGL mechanics required to satisfy the requirement for any sort of two 'weapon' attack feat that the creature might subsequently be given.

I think it's probably worthwhile to consider shifting damage value one category to the left (so medium does small damage, etc ) for bite attacks which have always struck me as needlessly powerful.

Which is why the house cat doesn't get a stat block.
I will come down on the side of wanting a stat block so that it's there in case I want to use it, but not require that it exist.
