Men in their thirties drew these in a busy pub!

I just love the flowers and the bunny tail on the first one! :)

Definitely seems like everyone got in to the spirit of the game.

Last night’s Monsters game went really well. :D

Despite my nervousness over the bells & whistles of the system (how do you convince your monster to carry on fighting again?) it was all fairly smooth. The slimmed down ORE, with more intuitive damage-to-location rules works a treat. As with all roleplaying games, within an hour of playing everyone wanted to remake their characters, now that they understood how it all worked.

There was a little initial worry about being sat in the (well, one of the alleged) Oldest Pub(s) in Britain drawing cartoon monsters. Bez has to be persuaded to colour his in. Dave went at it with much more gusto and Mike seemed happy enough, apart from there not being enough shades of green apparently.

Tubby (Bez) was a pseudo bully, but actually just over-sensitive and lashing out to protect his fragile soul. His monster Mr Nibbles had a penchant for children’s shoes and an abhorrence of milk. As a result, Tubby poured milk in his shoes every night to make sure Nibbles didn’t eat them and he’d have to explain to his Mum again where they’d gone.

Phil (Dave) is the epitome of the over-studious 10 going–on 45 Financial Times reading type. With an encyclopaedic knowledge of useless (to kids) facts, poor social skills and a pretentious arrogance that makes him no friends. In fact, the other kids are only friends with him because their Mum’s say they have to be. His parents are divorced and over-compensate by buying things like an elaborate tree house. John Dory is a mute, alien monster as cold as the depths of the ocean. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with the Girl’s Bathroom.

Arthur/Zack (Mike) might be a bully if he could work up the enthusiasm, inquisitive but easily bored, slightly chubby with ginger hair, he takes what friends he can get. His monster, Fred The Wiggler, has a vast array of appendages and just loves surprising people by popping out unexpectedly and disappearing again almost instantly.

There was an opening scene in Phil’s expensive laminate-floor tree house which resulted in a big monster fight. John Dory’s Gnarly teeth proved troublesome at first, until they got knocked out. Pretty soon Phil’s Mum found out about the near destruction of the tree-house and all the kids were in Trouble.

School was fairly eventful too. Lunchtime was most memorable, moments included Wiggler frightening one kid in the lunch queue, who then screamed and accidentally threw his spaghetti bolognaise down Phil’s back. He took some emotional damage from that and headed off to the washrooms to clean himself up. While there he heard more screams from next door as John Dory popped up out of the toilet pan to investigate what makes girls work (in a scientifically detached way of course) and being vaguely disappointed to find that this variety of human doesn’t carry a lug worm in their pants. The gang saved a seat for Burt who was going to give them some gossip, but as Phil got back his sort-of-friend-but-not-really Ninny popped up next to him in the spare seat. The young man tried to rebuff her by calling her skinny, but she just took this as a compliment and was glad he’d noticed the Kate Moss look she was going for. The Monsters got out in the cafeteria and it was all Tubby could do to stop Nibbles eating the abandoned shoes as everyone fled for the exits. Principals office for the kids once more...

We’ll be playing again at some point soon no doubt. This time with new monsters probably, if not whole new characters. Next stage is to work out what to do for characters at conventions. I’m probably going to set up a Cthulhu based game for Tentacles if I get chance. Nyarlathotep would so kick Dagon’s ass.

This is all pure deep-fried awesome with a side of WIN.

Some body else shares my thing for sea creatures that 'swim' in the air. Dig it.

Verity Verminn is a cute, skinny girl sent to the Workhouse when her parents were found butchered and strung up with barbed wire in the cellar of the their family home. Her favourite thing besides bread and butter is her friend, Rusty.

Rusty is cruel, cunning and vicious pile of scrap iron. His favourite thing is OIL. He likes going at people with his rusty butcher’s hooks and making things. He prefers making himself into an old Grandfather Clock to hide. He really hates water too. He’s got a horrible laugh.

Image

Jona Bloom is a lanky be-freckled kid, adventurous and nosy. He likes playing pirates and hunting treasure. Just as well he’s friends with Barnacle Bill then. His relationship with Juicy Mary is best left without discussion.

Barnacle Bill think’s he’s a pirate having hung round the docks too much. He also likes farting. His springy pantaloon legs get him in trouble, where his massive claws soon sort things out. How he’s able to see invisible things with his legs, no-one’s quite worked out.

Image

Dodger is a skinny runt with an ‘at fixation. He can’t stop calling people work’ouse. (Pronounced Work-aaaaaahsss). He hangs around Sid the Bastard too often. He’s got a lovable cuddly friend in Snuggles.

Normally as friendly and cute as a baby tiger, Snuggles goes Chicken Oriental when cornered, splitting into five angry, clawed, fanged furry whirlwinds of biting and scratching. He’ll skulk about in dark corners and chimney flues when left to his own devices. Unless there’s some frilly knickers about, which he’ll steal and use to line his nest.

Even more Monsters... from old hand Bez (Sharky), and school teachers [Head of Maths] Pete (Wibble) and [Head of Science] G-Unit (Gastr-o, Overlord of the 17th Dominion & High-King of the Gastrulans):

Gastr-O really is a blue ribbon monster. I'm glad the Kroog Judges recognized this in their decision.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

yeah, I agree, Gastro gets my vote. He's amazing. I'm happy he's got a medal because he sure deserves one. Viva la digestión, viva!
