Creature Feature

One of my very few complaints about Mongoose RuneQuest II was the paucity of monsters in the core rulebook.  Now, this is going to be rendered moot very soon with the release of the Monster Coliseum book, and we have the MRQI Monsters and Monsters II books that don't need much conversion.  However, for the most part the monsters we have are tried and true and it is hard to see where new monsters are going to come from.  Well, until now.  Check out RPG Creatures.  This guy not only describes his monsters and provides generic stats, but he posts quite beautiful pictures of them as well (see example to the right).

That'd be pretty good on its own, but reading through the generic stats it becomes clear that conversion to MRQII stat blocks is going to be a piece of cake.  Not only that, but most of the descriptions feel right, with a bit of tweaking, not just for RQ, but for Glorantha.  A lot of these are going to show up in My Glorantha, somewhere.

Thank you, Nicholas Cloister, thank you.


  1. I am not sure why I didn't have you on my blogroll until now, but that's just been rectified. Keep up the good work, and thanks for that RQII review--it helped make up my mind on a purchase!


  2. Looks like a brilliant site, and indeed easy enough to convert these to RQ stats. And Glorantha is more than big enough to have a lot of creatures running around that noone has ever seen so far...

    Thanks for the tip
