Monsters are terrifyingly powerful, their strength overshadowing all but the most mighty of Humans. They gain a +1 to their strength modifier and may wield two-handed or great weapons in one hand, allowing them to still use a shield. Their violent societies and war-like natures imbue them with an Attack Bonus equal to 1/2 their Character Level. They may also use the Press action in combat, though not Defensive Fighting or Parry. To represent their tusks, horns or simple brute strength, the Monster’s unarmed damage increases from a d2 to a d4.


These advantages come at a cost. Their odious habits, coupled with the fact that they have warred with humanity since time immemorial, bestows them with a -1 to their Charisma modifier. They cannot ride horses, nor can they fit in many doorways or structures designed for human use. Lastly, their ration requirements are doubled, as is the cost of any equipment they purchase, provided they can somehow find someone to sell it to them in the first place.
