Despair said:OGL Steampunk is missing an opponents section. Which monsters would you think appropriate for this setting and why?
baileyrecords said:Here's my list... which should be out in print & PDF around Thanksgiving/Boxing Day!
kiln publications said:Very good idea thank you, it is being taken into very careful consideration by us.... BTW: what price would you find fair for 10 newly created NPC's for OGL Steampunk via a pdf file???
Camelon75 said:Now given that the steam punk blurb that convinced me to buy this uncompleted product was
"The Core Rulebooks from Mongoose Publishing are a series of full-blown RPGs designed to fully explore individual genres, giving players and Games Masters all the tools they need to create their own settings and scenarios."
Jason Durall said:Have you given thought to a similar book with mundane opponents? For example, I would find writeups for 30 generic NPCs far more useful than a roster of dozen all-star celebrities of the period.
In fact, I'd find a dozen generic NPCs more useful.
baileyrecords said:We will include mundanes in all our actual supplement books. However, for our Adversaries & Adventurers line you'll be getting the cream of the crop heroes and villians! That's just the way we're setting it up. Sorry.
Personally, I read that blurb as saying "this book only contains the genre material, and no setting to fit that genre. The GM will have the tools to (and will need to) create a setting (world, NPCs, scenarios, a few world-specific skills, the odd piece of technology, etc) themselves."

Sorry mthomason But I just cannot agree with your reading.
Page 221 of OGL has a paragraph entitled Detrermine individual challenge ratings which has a phrase
"creatures have their CR listed in their discriptions..."
Camelon75 said:Now where in this book do I get the discriptions, I would argue that all is not contained in this one book and all the tools required are alos not contained within this book If I had only purchased this book as my first OGL product I would be missing an importnat element to my creation of scenarios.
in fact the previous chapter contians many specail abilities but does not tell me how they affect a CR or even how a CR is calculated for a creature
only how an ordinary is level -1
