    DCC ruleset content- monsters?

    I'm thinking of purchasing the ruleset for FGU, so I am wondering if it comes with a small bestiary, just like the hardback copy.

    Furthermore, what options are available to expand the monsters available for DCC, apart from manually converting from other systems?

    The hardback rulebook content is there.

    There are some third party monster books. And fanzine (gong farmer) with some content. Facebook group has someone converting the Fiend Folio.

    Yeah the Core Rules has about 175 creature beastiary. Lots of 3rd part stuff, much of it free. The Gongfarmer's Almanac on DriveThruRPG; https://archadestower.blogspot.com/; and http://ravencrowking.blogspot.com/?m=1 are a few examples.

    I will add the monsters in the DCC ruleset for FGU include some of the variant monsters - primes, variants (fire beetle, desert elemental, etc.), and creatures with stat blocks from other parts of the rulebook - familiars, fey (from the spell War Horn of Elfland), and golems.

    Didn't Goodman Games talk about a monster book at Gary Con ? I think it was going to have like 500 monsters? That will keep somebody busy for awhile.

    I missed that, but very interesting! Fortunately monsters are pretty easy to create in FG, but tokens can take a little work depending on how much you want to fuss with them. That’s a lot of monsters though!

    Yes! Love the adaptability of Fantasy Grounds. More good news ... if I rember right. They were going to offer virtual tokens for vtts.
