  • Monster Templates

    Been working on making a template for monsters in my Hunter games. Trying to find a fixed method of making monsters for easier reference. The templates are heavily simplified and use a mix of old and new dread powers, I tended to stick with a more Hollywood interpretation as I feel that fits the Hunter world, or at least my Hunter world, a little better. I've mostly been working from online wikis and some old PDFs and a couple of the new books.

        Hmm. Pale_Crusader also created some Brief Nightmare versions here.

            Vent0 thanks for sharing the link. Lord Jub-Jub Brief Nightmares are simplified Horror rules located in Chronicles of Darkness, Page 143.
