  1. Hmmm. An idea. So there's an interstitial ('Middlemarch') world, primitive and probably largely unformed, that has been ignored by the Lords of Law and Chaos. A number of refugees, from different worlds, have gathered there, and are trying to survive under far from ideal conditions. Among them are some fanatical followers of Law and Chaos, who are looking to resume the war that brought them here. Of course the danger is that at some point the Lords of the Higher Worlds might notice this little pocket universe and decide to subjugate it.
  2. Well Tanelorn is Eternal, and Oone the Dream Thief certainly survived, probably by way of the Moon Beam Roads. However... It is important to note one feature of MM's Eternal Champion fiction: all the worlds of the Multiverse are linked in the same cycle. So Chaos was resurgent across the Multiverse, as the Balance had to be reset cosmically. So there's no 'save haven': any plane you flee too is going to be in the middle of its own apocalypse (the raise of the Madben horde, the Granbretanian conquest, Hitler). Now the inevitability of total destruction in those other wo
  3. The Somnambulist (The Cabinet of Dr Caligari) Legends speak of lost souls lost in an eerie sleep, who can only be awoken by an sinister mystic/mesmerist, who can than command the sleeper as a puppet, which can be sent forth on evil deeds. Characteristics As established for the sleeper's race, with the following modifications: the Somnambulist is cable of astounding and freakish feats of athleticism; they receive between 4 and 8 levels of Super Characteristics for STR and DEX (+4 to +8 to the characteristic). They have no effective P

  5.

  7. Read the book! Ugggh! Fumbled my Lore: American Science Fiction roll. The trilogy that the Manta appears in, "Omnivore", "Orn", and "Ox" is by Piers Anthony. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Of_Man_and_Manta
  8. Pier Anthony's Manta From Omnivore The Manta's homeworld is Nacre, a planet where fungal life is dominant, and a world with a stable, 'ordered' eco-system. Despite its amazing mobility the Manta is a fungal creature, and a sapient, though it has no culture and no technology, requiring neither, as it is so perfectly adjusted to its ecological niche. In appearance the Manta's upper body is a flattened disk, with a large, unblinking eye in the front, and a thin, whip like tail in the rear. This upper body is supported by a trunk-like 'foot'. In movement the 'foot' contracts and expands

  10. Dimetrodon Though often mistaken for a dinosaur, the dimetrodon is actually a kind of proto-mammal . It's most distinctive feature is is the tall 'sail' that adorns its back; created by long spines that project from its vertebrae. It is an aggressive carnivore.

  15. Penanggalan A horrifying undead monster from Malaysian folklore, the Penanggalan is truly a grotesque nightmare. By day the creature takes the form of a comely, young woman. But at night, her head separates itself from its body, and with its entrails hanging in bloody loops from the stump of its neck, flies through the night searching for blood. Characteristics: +1d4+1 CHA (for its 'bodied' form). +1d4 POW. If using Hit Locations figure the HP for the head as normally, and add +1d6. If Hit Locations are not being used then the head has ½ of the creature's HP. The creature
  16. Jiangshi There are many tales surrounding how these creatures come to be: failure to observe proper burial rites, necromancy, leaving the corpses of suicides exposed to moonlight, or the refusal of some evil men and women to rest quietly in their tombs. The result is the same: a horrible, undead monster that stalks the living to feed on their blood. Powerful Jaingshi can cloak their appearance with illusion, appearing as graceful and elegant humans. Their true appearance, which appears in mirrors and other reflective surfaces, is that of a corpse green with grave-mold; having a wild

    So my own humble addition to the BRP canon was the 'Incident At Vasir Station' in 'The River Terror'. I wrote a sequel to scenario that for a subsequent BRP adventure contest, which was rejected. Here for your amusement is that scenario.
