Design Mechanism published a mighty tome called Mythic Babylon this summer. It contains magic system additions and everything necessary to play a role playing campaign in Babylon – of course including creatures.
I have added a few of those into the Mythras Encounter Generator so it will be as easy to generate those than any others. There are also few additional abilities for beasts – Good and Bad Omen, Melammu – a form of frightening splendour and See Ghosts. These have been added as abilities to the MeG.
I have also added tag “Mythic Babylon” for existing creatures that I have created that might be encountered in Babylon.
First batch of new creatures are
- Kulullu – the Merpeople
- Girtablullu – the Scorpion men
- Katillu – the scorpion demon
- Apsasu – the Winged Bull (the ones you can see in British Museum)
- Suhurmasu (Goat Fish)
- Mushussu (Babylonian Dragon)
- Lion Fish
These could also fit nicely into a sword and sorcery campaign for example Monster Island.
There are already aurochs, Babylonian ostrich, Cheetah, Common Griffin, Hyena, Jackal, Lions and Wolves to fit into your Babylonian campaign.
More Babylonian creatures will join MeG soon.
