The Lumberlands – Dangerous Critters – Black Hack conversion Part III

I’m continuing my conversion of the OSR zine Lumberlands (DriveThruRPG / itch.io) to the Black Hack ruleset.

Previous Posts: Part I – Classes are here. Part II – Sasquatches are here.

This is a list of stats for the monsters found in the Dangerous Critters section of the Lumberlands Zine (pg 32). These are just the stats – physical descriptions are in the zine itself.

I’ll probably put out one or two more of these posts detailing some more Lumberlands creatures, then I’ll put everything in a downloadable PDF. I’ll probably make a custom Lumberlands-themed character sheet as well.
