Amaranthine Annelid

Amaranthine-Annelid-PatreonThe Amaranthine Annelid is an updated version of a large, violet-hued burrowing monster found in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game. We wrote up the original version about two years ago, and like many of our early resources, it was inspired by one of  Printable Heroes’ paper miniatures.

Apart from cleaning up some wording and deciding what skills/ratings the Fate Core version of the monster would have based on its Fate Accelerated approaches, we didn’t change much from the original. Even after all this time, we’re still pretty happy with that Belly of the Beast stunt. Swallowing opponents whole is a signature move of the monster, and we wanted it to be scary while not spelling instant death for the heroes. We very much believe that, at least for most types of games, character death should be meaningful and that the player should have a large say in the ultimate fate of their character. Moving swallowed heroes to a separate zone, complete with its own aspects and hazards, which they have a set amount of time to escape from is a great way to make things tense and challenging while still giving the player ample opportunity to escape what is essentially a giant purple death trap.

The links for the Amaranthine Annelid on the front page under Resource Catalogue have been updated, or you can grab the A4 sized version here and the letter sized version here.

We’ll continue to post updates like this when heroes and monsters released prior to the Patreon page have been updated to include both Fate Accelerated and Fate Core stats.

Just a reminder, these resources are made possible thanks to the supporters of the Fantastic Fate Patreon page. Patrons get new resource packs a full month before they’re released to the public, get to vote on the theme of upcoming monthly sets, as well as help make decisions regarding the stats and presentation of antagonists.
