The original Monster Manual? It had 258. (I'm being generous there, too, because I'm including each subtype of demon and dragon in that tally...if I ignored them, I'd have won weeks ago!)
In your face, E.G.G.!!!
So what does this mean for the future of A Field Guide To Doomsday...?
Absolutely nothing, really.
I have dozens more of my own critters waiting in the wings, and I'll still be posting goofy news and reviews...but I'll expand to critique some post-apocalyptic movies, and even music, too! And Halloween is just six months away....
But statting out the official Gallus-Gallus 5/13s in Mutant Future terms was a helluva lot of fun, so I plan on adapting other Gamma World beasties that tickle my fancy. And I've been confabbing with the dandy Dustin Brandt of the awesome Fire In The Jungle blog (and print supplement of the same name), so expect to see some his creatures ported over, too.
I know I promised this before, but sooner than later, I'm going to put all my mutants into a single document for free download. I swear I started this process few months back, but enough invisible formatting glitches popped up (from doing straight copy-n-pastes from Blogger to Word) that I need to start from scratch.
Let me extend a hearty THANK YOU to all my readers, and particularly my gaggle of regular commenters. Your feedback truly keeps me going, as I feel like I'm actually doing something worthwhile, instead of just wasting my time doodling monsters on the cyber-equivalent of a Trapper Keeper.
Here's to another 259!
