99 Strange, scary, dangerous, and just plain weird creatures from the Shoals of Earth!
Build encounters quickly and easily, or create them randomly on the fly. Then give your players a look at their foes before plunging into combat.
The Strange Creature Deck contains 99 of the most commonly encountered creatures from the shoals of Earth, drawn from both The Strange corebook and The Strange Bestiary. When you need to build an encounter (either when prepping your game or at the gaming table), simply draw a card from this deck. You’ve got basic stats (with a reference to the corebook, for full stats and info) on one side, and an image to share with your players on the reverse. Even if you don’t choose cards randomly, you can still pick out the ones you need when prepping for your game–you’ll be astounded at the time you save!
The Strange Creature Deck saves oodles of time when prepping for your game sessions, and even more time when you need to create and run an encounter on the fly. And who couldn’t use a bit more time for the actual gaming?
Creatures from The Strange Creature Deck (and other Strange sources, such as The Strange Bestiary) are compatible for use with Numenera.
Here’s a quick look at The Strange Creature Deck and The Strange Bestiary:
PDF purchasers: To print your Creature Deck, set your double-sided printer to short-edge binding and print on a cardstock material. Then, with a sharp utility knife and straight edge, use the crop marks as guides to trim the cards apart. If you don’t have a double-sided printer, print the pages individually and then glue them back-to-back with a thin, even coat of adhesive. Before glueing, hold the back-to-back sheets up to a light source to ensure they are lining up correctly. The gutters between the cards give you a little bit of leeway if the two sides do not line up exactly.
