Bestiary One

Recommended Posts

Ok, taking Pete up on his challenge (see pinned topics) I've doodled about with the Lifeform Excel Sheet made by PhaseDragon (download it here: http://www.rollingthunder.com/Downloads/SuperNova/Players/LifeForm2.xls).

 

Here is my first offering. It will only include the rules details, no names, descriptions, phsycololgy. I leave that as an exercise for the student:

Well this looked much nicer in my word processor, and I had to edit some stuff to get it too fit. I have the sheet saved, so if you're interested ask for it and I'll send it out. And that might be how I proceed from here. Or if I can figure out how to attach docs here (that's an unabashed query for assistance from the moderators ...)

Well cutting and pasting directly from Excel worked much better. Ok here is offer two, a Plant.

 

PhaseDragon -- All the Combat A items that say "one per arm/leg" or "Max of {some number}" complain when I duplicate. My understanding from reading the rules is that one has to pay for each such item that the Lifeform includes, ie Claws on Hands and Feet that's 4x Claws (assuming Humanoid). Am I missing something?

The best life form is the one you are happy with. If you want advice you can get plenty, but it is irrelevant if you are happy with your design. Personally I see good and bad with your design, but then again, without know exactly how the Draco universe has been tweaked it is much harder to say if a concern is justified.
