If you want to jump in, go right ahead! The gist is, pick 10 monsters and build a mini setting around them. How do they interact? Who was there first? Who wants what from who?
If you do one, tag it #tenmonstersetting
Here's a few more!
And a new one: https://savemycampaign.wordpress.com/2019/05/13/10-monster-setting/
If you need a bit more help Chris Hall came up with this:
After I suggested this Chris Hall came up with this handy list:
Pick a semi-intelligent humanoid (could be goblins, apemen, subhumans, etc.). Pick an undead. Pick an ancient fey race. Pick a giant/ogre/troll race. Pick a type of great wyrm or lizard. Pick something aerial. Pick something to lurk in the water. Pick something from another dimension (demon, gith, illithid). Pick a classic creature from mythology (medusa, satyr, minotaur, etc.). Pick some foul crawly thing that infests the underworld. Something like that. Then I’d give each a twist.
You've got Bob's setting linked above twice. Do we stand at four or five entries so far?ReplyDelete
Whoops! 4 so far then. (plus mine, so 5) .Delete

Added it this morning! Great job. I really wanted to use the living wall, its a great (and freaky concept).Delete
I think I eluded to this in the comments of one of your more recent posts, but here's a new challenge I started inspired by this one that I'm hoping people will participate in:ReplyDelete
