Lockdown Challenge Day One: Monsters! Monsters!
Today: Monsters! Monsters! the role-playing game in which you play a monster, preying on innocent villagers and killing the adventurers the villagers have hired to get rid of you. You also get bonus adventure points if the villagers you kill are female with high charisma. It does sound sexist but it’s a good Old School game from 1976; actually a spin-off of Tunnels & Trolls with very little in terms of new rules – it’s mostly new races.
By the way Monsters! Monsters! is currently being crowdfunded for a new edition with a new layout, new art, and many more monsters! Quick! Only seven days left!
OK, on to the character. Let me introduce you to Keeper of Secrets from the Unfathomable Past (but everybody just calls him ‘KoSfUP’). He is a Naga from the Trollworld Nagalands. He is usually employed as a mercenary but he enjoys cooking and secretly dreams of writing a human flesh cookbook.
