Did the frog blame the scorpion? @ 01:02 pm


SomethingAwful takes on monsters from the 1st edition Monster Manual.

If you're extremely bored, read them all.

If you need only the cream, then I offer:
Rot Grub
Piercer
Ixitxachitl

Zack: You can't just roll some random encounter dice and tell your players, "Alright dudes, you're walking along the beach and you hear some praying. You look over and you see these manta rays in a church. Some of them look really pale."


And if you only want the creme de la creme:

??????????
Steve: What book did you find this thing in?

Zack: Steve, these are all from the Monster Manual.

Steve: No way, this thing isn't in there. What book did you really get it from? Fiend Folio? Some sort of Spelljammer book?

Pat, your challenge is to run a Maxicon game using only these monsters.

I am up to the challenge. Actually, a Something Awful-themed game sounds like a win-win to me. Oh oh oh... something like an Armando improv performance where instead of breaking into improv, the players break into mini-encounters. OMG... I am so running that!
