- What you said was that special abilities would be front and center.
And they are. They are right there in the book. They don't take any work to develop. The only "stats" missing are the simple ones.
Each monster is a short story, a setting, a collection of challenges for players, and together they define a vision of a setting.
It may be true you don't have time to read that-but your complaint about stating them out isn't one that seems relevant having read the book.
I am salty this morning. Denigrating the work of artists like some people have done makes me salty. I stand by the literal text of what I wrote. If you truly regret supporting me, I will gladly refund any money you have spent. Simply e-mail your receipt and I will do so.Apr 16, 2015
- Fair enough,, fair enough.To be honest I might take a punt myself once Salute has gone by and I have some spare cash again. (I stand by "I'd rather send Scrap and Patrick a fiver each than only end up giving them a quid" though, and if either of them WANTS the fiver they know where to find me.)Apr 16, 2015
- Considering every review I've read has referred to it as statless, I assume that those special abilities don't have mechanics, meaning you would in fact have to write them. And movement rate, AC, HD, attacks, morale, xp value, resistances and special defenses, intelligence value, etc, etc. Hardly just '2 lines of text'.
If mechanics are detailed on the creature's special abilities, then blame the reviews for misleading me.
And it 'may not be true' how much time I have to spend on creating stats for a monster book, it IS true.
As someone who is about to start selling their own OSR products and has a module being Kickstarted, I am well aware of the value of creator's work. But something can be worth a large some of money and that doesn't mean that I am willing to spend that amount to own it. Maybe I have a limited budget, who knows (you certainly don't). Well summed it up pretty well.
Be salty all you want, but aim it the people who earned it, not me.Apr 16, 2015
- James, since you are in Europe, where did you buy the book? Did you have it imported from the States?Apr 20, 2015
- I bought it from Lulu. They have local printing places all over the world... except maybe Antarctica, because Antarcticans are assholes and don't deserve their own print shops.Apr 20, 2015
- Anyone care to give a broad brushstroke example of one (or two) of these mind-blowing monsters?
PS - I agree with MS and JG - a solid gold car may cost over a million bucks to make, but that does mean I'm willing or able to pay for it ...Jun 29, 2015
