October Plans

30 September, 2009

Tomorrow begins October, the eighth month of the Roman Calendar.  The Romans had no special association for October beyond Autumn, but we have Halloween, so I think for this month on the Sea of Stars Design Journal we shall do Monsters as our theme.

If there are any kinds of monsters you would like to see, let me know (here or in the forums) and I will see what I can do.  But I can promise some new undead and a template or two.  Expect something dangerous to appear this Friday . . .


  1. Actually, I’m interested in seeing monsters that aren’t undead. In particular I’m curious to see what you come up with for — yes — goblins.

    Not the goblins of your standard D&D or Tolkien fantasy, diminutive cannon fodder whose only real job is to give characters some experience for their trouble. I mean goblins, the creatures who slip into childrens’ rooms and steal them away, who extort payment of precious food from peasants in exchange for leaving them in peace. Those goblins.

    And in return, I’ll see what I can do. 🙂

    • That sounds like a fun challenge and as the Sea of Stars does not have traditional RPG goblins in it at all. Goes to ponder.

  2. […] working on a OGL setting called Sea of Stars. In his most recent post, he announced that his October plans—October being a naturally monstrous month—would most involve monster creation and templates. […]

  3. Part Two is up as well. This is a bit meatier, although that’s a relative term – stat blocks for creatures in Unknown Armies are rarely more than six lines long, and that’s including the creature’s name. The interesting details come from the description, and that defines their abilities as well.
