Harvesters - Critter HD Type?

Post by MattyHelms »

I'm enjoying reading Harvesters and am looking forward to trying it out with the kids.

Quick question - most of the critters are not given a Hit Die type, just a number of Hit Dice. Is there a default Hit Die type or should we use the die type for the class that best fits the critter's role?

Thanks!

Matt

As with most things, that is just a guideline. You could equate to something like orcs. Most are just plain 1HD, but if you have a chieftain or a shaman, they might be 2, 3, or 4HD. Most of the critters, if they are not an adventurer, will be what is stated in the book. Some critters have ranges, lower HD for younger animals, higher for older animals. Consider all critters to be d8.
