Re: Rear attacks and Facing?

Your first move above involves more than 90 degrees of facing change, by the strictest reading of the rules. He's turned 45 degrees right, stepped forward, turned 45 degrees left, advanced, then turned 90 degrees left. 180 degrees. But I'll agree, in a fully open field, this kind of maneuver seems p...

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

The new book will be called the Iron Falcon Handbook of Monsters. I did some Googling and found no evidence that anyone has ever used "Handbook of Monsters" (which seems odd, it's quite obvious) so that's what I'm doing. Thanks to everyone who made suggestions! Look for a new work-in-progress releas...

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

Interesting ideas, guys!

Now that I have a functional version of the book, I'll likely turn my attention back to my adventure project. I do plan to put the work-in-progress on the main ironfalconrpg.com page shortly though.

Re: Rear attacks and Facing?

Attacking from behind at +2, anyone can do. A thief's sneak attack is +4 to hit, and double damage; only thieves get this.

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

R5 uploaded. This completes the addition of BFRPG creatures to the monster listing, and adds the Red Cap (as noted). Right now, with basically no art, it's 81 numbered pages. Next steps: For monsters with no "% In Lair," I need to come up with appropriate figures. Possibly even explain how that stat...

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

Smoot, I'm taking you up on your offer. The next release will include the Red Cap; as a classic monster from mythology, I think it's a good fit. And you'll have a contributor credit.

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

Indeed, yes.

R4 uploaded. After some hard thinking, I've decided to include the Urgoblin; it was created to replace a Product Identity monster which dates back to the pre-1980 era, so I'm including it. I'm up to the Wolf as of right now, and this book is over 80 pages without art... dang.

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

Thanks guys, for the sharing as well as for the name ideas. Still looking for that perfect name... Phase one involves getting all the BFRPG core monsters into it. Phase two will consist of tracking down other monster ideas. I'm not at all sure I want the Dracomanders, despite having included the Lig...

Re: [IF] Monster Guidebook

Just uploaded R3 to the first post. Up to the Salamanders now, and in addition to adding the Frost Salamander, I've also included my Lightning Salamander.

[IF] Monster Guidebook

Okay, so I've mentioned more than a few times that I'm working on a new project, a multimodule including a new starting area, dungeon and city adventures, and a few interesting optional rules. I'm not ready to reveal it yet, but I am going to reveal a project that grew out of that one. You see, in t...
