About This File

This is a conversion from the old-school 1st edition MM to be compatible with BRP/MM/CF.

 

I didn't include any common races like human/elf/dwarf as those are readily available in the other books, but did include almost all the creatures in that book. Some are also featured in other compatible works and I copied most of this information (that I agreed with) to maintain consistency.

 

As it says on the first page of this book, "This book is not, in any way, a product of my artistic or writing ability. Every bit of art and most of the descriptions were “borrowed” from many other, much more talented people from other books and around the internet."

 

All I did was throw together a manual for easy reference, quicker adventure building, and smoother encounter generation.

There's Still tons of convertible stuff out there, Skull! I'm working on Manual of Monsters II right now, then maybe (if sanity remains) a Folio of Fiends. Wouldn't mind seeing some of the Dragon MAgazine critters converted, or Monsters of Myth and Legend, if you are feeling froggy for a ton of work still. LOL.

I am looking forward to seeing Manual of Monsters II :) I also like how you stated Titans in Manual of Monsters I. Examining your conversion of Titans, Tiamat, Bahamut might give me a better idea on converting gods.

 

 If you have any guidelines you think might help me stat out the gods let me know.  

 

I am currently finishing up my guideline for converting Shadowrun to BRP. Also trying to write conversion guidelines for converting Deities & Demigods 1e/2e to BRP.   I was going to just port over 3.5 Deities & Demigods. but doing so makes them way to wimpy especially the greater gods and ruler gods. Also 3.5 does not have as many gods as the older editions.

 

 

 

I do have a lot of the old School dragon magazines :)

Deities isn't a bad idea, but I'm not sure I beefed up my unique creatures enuff in my MMI to be a guideline to converting deities. Remember some Cthulu nasties have extremely high characteristics. Whenever you think one may be too high, raise it a little more. LOL.

Also I highly recommend using Deep Magic for deities instead of sorcery. I'm toying with an idea for the circle of glyphs/spheres. If you look at the circles in advanced sorcery there's a great big blank space in the center of the circles. I'm thinking of calling this space Mana or something like that and allowing only deities access to it. That way ALL powers are accessible for 1 point. Then sphere/glyphs that the deity actually know cost no MP.This allows greater power and a reason for titles such as " god of magic" or "Lord of Fire" or "Goddess of Creation" Of course this is just an idea for converting Deities & Demi gods to MW . I personally feel deities should be beyond reproach and all powerful. That being said there are plenty of stories in myth and folklore of mortals foiling a Deities or Devils plans...maybe there's a place for it.

I found a better source of gods to convert. so i wont be using AD&D stats converted to BRP.

 

I am currently collecting data for various pantheons. I think i am lacking Celtic, Japaneese, and Chineese pantheons. It is a big list of gods will take me a while to convert. I don't currently have access to the book that have Celtic, Japaneese, and Chineese gods. so those 3 pantheons will be on hold. and be converted last.

 

 

My versions of the Gods will be more powerful than the gods listed in Call of Cthulhu rpg.

I know everyone else has already said this but, thanks. This is great. Your work is truly appreciated. 

 

So there we are, writing out new characters and I said to a player  "What character race do want to be". Oh a pixie said the 200lb power lifter who's in my group. Now that's playing a different role! And where were the pixies? Manual of Monsters conversion 1 to the rescue. Apparently he wanted to play a pixie for the invisibility, the ability to fly, hide away in trees etc. and be a sniper/scout.

Praise is Always appreciated. I'm glad you've found a use! I played a pixie once in an old D&D game and it was great fun...till the DM whipped out Fly Swatter of Vecna. :) BTW Chaosium is working on a critter book now as well so keep a look out!
