ARRGS – Monsters

Monsters fulfil a variety of roles and challenges for PCs to face during a Scene, especially a Combat Scene.

Monsters are separated into several power levels to allow Scenes to be tailored so that they challenge characters appropriately.

Minion: A Minion is the weakest example of a creature, he possesses only 1 Vitality, a -2 penalty to all Ability Scores, and only 1 Option from the available Options list.

Regular: A Regular monster appears as they do in the Monster section. He possesses 1 Option from the available Options list.

Elite: An Elite monster is above average and a more dangerous opponent than expected. An Elite monster gains a +2 bonus to all Ability Scores and may select up to 5 Options from the available Options list

Boss: A Boss monster is a truly exceptional individual, much like the PCs themselves. A Boss monster gains a +5 bonus to all Ability Scores and may select 1 Option per CR from the available Options list.
