I’ve been going through a lot of osr stuff recently and am enjoying the things I’m seeing. I quite like the look of black hack 2e and decided to go through hardcore mode properly this time as I only just skimmed it before.
I decided to test out the monster converter. Oh my god! It’s pure genius. I have made an orc, orc chief, goblin, goblin boss and ogre in like 2 mins. So impressed with it. Not sure how powerful things get with bigger monsters and if I can use this for icrpg but it’s great so far.
One thing I’m not sure on is what they roll for damage in hardcore mode. Is it what’s stated on the monster bio, or is it their hit dice? If I use it for icrpg I may just do weapon damage +CR. Who knows lol.
I like the advantage /disadvantage vs icrpgs easy and hard. Purely just because it gives less numbers (something my players prefer even though its not exactly difficult).
I don’t really have much else to say on it really but I just felt I needed to display publicly my appreciation for it.
