People who aren’t careful have a habit of vanishing in this city. The cops, they just don’t care. Hired hands, they’re hiding something. The likes of people like me, researching the truth on the side. If you’re careful, you’ll stay close and ask few questions. – Herman P. Finske, Attorney and Occult Reseacher
Even as times change and people progress, one things stays true… there are things that always go bump in the night. Your walled in lands of safety can still be infiltrated or outright broken down. And even without that, there are still dark forces at work from within. Mad experiments, mutants, things of the mind and more! Monsters are going modern for this week!
Author’s Note: More urban fantasy/modern horror creatures! This time, right out of the pages of D20 Modern with my own twists here and there.
The stars carry their own ill omens. Sometimes, they are not always distant sleeping beings, but terrestrial creatures of a different sort. This doesn’t stop them from being completely alien in other ways. Sometimes, these things are from our own world and remain just as frightening as things from beyond the stars. The borders between dimensions falter, as a dark matter begins to traverse into our own realm. All means of xenoforms manifest as a result, with us ill prepared for what is to come.
Author’s Note: War of the Worlds, Alien’s Xenomorph, Classic Conspiracy Theories. Those are the subjects of this post. Also, remember when I said I was done butchering German? Well, I guess I lied… Also, I wanted to fit a few references to the Alternity RPG’s Dark*Matter setting. Also, please don’t hate me for poking fun at the recent Aliens universe…
Beyond even the Great Wheel and known space, there are incredible creatures with equally incredible possibilities. Distant worlds and distant planes, both hold incredible secrets to ancient realms and alien beings. Some reach just beyond familiar material Crystal Spheres, while some are as incomprehensible and untouchable as the Far Realm.
Author’s Note: Let’s bring in some real science fantasy! This time, I’m reaching for Star Frontiers/Star*Drive/Dark*Matter for inspiration! For anyone familiar with either game, these monsters should be quite recognizable. As it is, the Yazirian already got its own set of stats… well, under its Spelljammer name. At some point, I might hope to bring the Star Frontiers aliens back as races. Though, I’m far from the first to think about that…
