Rolemaster: Creatures & Treasures
From the web:
Creatures & Treasures was a book put out by Iron Crown Enterprise as part of their core rules for the fantasy role-playing game Rolemaster. It consists of six primary sections: intro, creatures, treasures, encounters, conversion notes, and miscellaneous.
The intro explains the contents of the rest of the book and identifies its use for Rolemaster Fantasy and Middle-earth Role Playing (1st & 2nd Editions) (aka MERP).
The creature section is further broken down into the main categories: animal, monster, and intelligent races. The animals list is fairly comprehensive and includes everything from antelope to wolverines. In the monster section the reader discovers dragons, constructs, the Undead, planar beings, dinosaurs, and other creatures to befoul a campaign. The intelligent races cover giant-kind, underground, fairy and unusual races. Rules are provided to the Gamemaster for creating his or her own monsters.
The treasure section provides information for creating and generating treasure. A wide range of particularly potent and artifact-style treasure items are also described.
The encounters section provides guidance and tables for generating random encounters.
The conversion notes detail instructions for converting Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (1st Edition) (a level based system) and RuneQuest (1st & 2nd Editions) (a skill based system) monsters to their Rolemaster / MERP equivalents (level & skill based systems).
The miscellaneous section rounds out the book with tables for racial abilities, resistance rolls, and encounters based on terrain, population density, and travel mode.
