d30 Feature of the Week: d30 Dinosaur Encounters w/ Stats

Let's face it, when it comes to dinosaurs, "you can't tell the players without a program." And forget about trying to look at the length of the damn things in correlation to their hit dice, and then guessing the basic shape of the dinosaur from the number of attacks or special armor class conditions. And then there's the fact that what we used to call the "brontosaurus" in the 70s and 80s is now officially the "apatosaurus."

Consider this your program. It includes all of the major prehistoric players (dinosaurs and pterosaurs) covering all the bases of the 1e MM, BX Blue, and module X1, as well as newer discoveries that post-date those editions (like the velociraptor.)

  1. Late to the party, but I LOVE the chart.

    Question: Why did you opt against horn attacks for the monoclonius and styracosaurus? Just to keep things spicy?

    Again, LOVE it.

  2. Actually, on the monoclonius, no damage stat was given in the 1eMM for a horn attack (guessing that trample is the preferred attack). No reason it shouldn't be added, though. On the styracasaurus, again no horn attack mentioned (though the spikes damage to rear attacks was mentioned in MM, just not included in my chart - but I have added it.) Again, I'll probably add the horn damage for this one as well.

  3. This pdf no longer seems to be downloadable from Mediafire.
