Skirmisher Releases 'Moat Monsters

Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing is pleased to announce the release of Moat Monsters: A Sourcebook for OGL RPGs! It is available from DriveThruRPG and RPGNow (10 pages, $1.99).

In most fantasy settings, castles and cities are vital components of civilization, and many of these rely on moats for defense. These large ditches are usually filled with water and meant to stop attackers from reaching the outer walls. Although this tactic was successful in real world history, traditional moats are not as effective in fantasy worlds because of the existence of magic. To counter this and thwart fantasy-world invaders, moats could be filled with different materials and energies, or even populated with monsters.

This sourcebook contains 20 monsters specifically designed to be ideal for occupying moats and enhancing their natural functions, along with ideas on other ways moats can be made more lethal as first lines of defense for fortifications. Monsters in it are stat'ed for the "Basic" OGL system and can be easily adapted or used as-is with any RPGs based on or derived from it. 

* Moat Monsters is also available with 15 other titles in a 69% off OGL System Compatible Bundle! This special 69% off bundle includes our bestselling Noble Wild animal player's handbook, Insults & Injuries guide to medical maladies, and Edgar Rice Burroughs' Mars, the entire "Cooper's Corrected" series of fixes and expansions to OGL monster stats, and more!
