Dolmenwood: Standard B/X Monsters


As an element of the continuing work on the Dolmenwood Book of Monsters (actual name still to be determined), I've gone through the list of monsters presented in the B/X books and picked out those that might usually be found in Dolmenwood. The full list is below.

Further tasks related to this that I'll be working on:

  • The list of B/X monsters in Dolmenwood will be included in an appendix somewhere, along with the page reference for each monster. (And possibly basic stats.)
  • For at least some of the B/X monsters, I'll write a short description of their role in Dolmenwood. For example, spectres may be the lost and vengeful souls of criminals hanged at crossroads. This kind of detail will give a small twist on a standard monsters and give it a place in the setting.

    1. Hum, I'd have to have a look. I've not looked at MF for a long time.
