Have you ever wondered where monsters come from?

I mean, it's not like the CPU randomly generates them just instants before your party of plucky heroes pulverizes them, right? What do they do the rest of the time? Do they plot amongst each other? Do some of them fight against evil, or are they really the blasphemous creatures everyone thinks they are?

Monster Mash is the first supplement for Super Console, giving you the ability to play a powerful, evolving monster character. Play a monsters-only game, or mix-and-match with regular Super Console character classes. In here you'll find...

52 Monster Classes!
Monsters that metamorphose into other varieties!
New statuses!
Items specifically for monster games!
Antagonists for monster MCs!
The new Angry State rule!
Advice for the Players and CPU on how to play exactly the kind of game you want. Take on the forces of good, or fight the Main Villain for the right to take his place!
Tons of pretty, pixelated art!

Introduction
Welcome to Monster Mash
Here it is:
Super Console’s
rst supple-ment. Within you’ll nd everything you needto take up arms on behalf of the Main Villain,to play a monster turned to the cause of good,or to become a dark overlord yourself.
Why Play a Monster?
Plenty of console games have a tokenmonster character, but few of them make itthe main focus of the game! What makes itworthwhile?First, it’s a novel gaming experience. Thereare all sorts of new abilities to try out, the funof transforming into a new monster type, newequipment, and so forth. It’s almost like a newgame where you already know the rules.Second, it’s a different viewpoint. As onemight imagine, monsters have a differenttake on the world than most Main Characters.Fighting for their survival isn’t a new andfrightening prospect for them, it’s old hat. TheMain Villain is still frightening, but not becauseof his plan to rule the world - he’s frightening because he’s so powerful. A monster’s life isn’t just fun for number-crunchers, it’s full of funthings for a role-player too.Third, you get to talk funny.
The Setting
Unlike
Console
 , which has a plethora of possible times and settings to draw from,
Monster Mash
has a narrower focus. Thissupplement concentrates on one of the GreatWars between Good and Evil, sometime be-tween the beginning of the Medieval Era andthe end of the Post-Magitech Era. The generalassumption is that the game is operating inthe middle of the Magitech Era, with somesophisticated technology working alongsidepowerful magic.Your characters are monsters. From goblinsto slimes to dragons to dryads and everythingin between, you’re playing “the bad guys.”At the beginning of the game, your monstershave a choice: do you join the Dark Lord inhis quest to rule to world? If you do, you’ll be ghting against the goody-two-shoes thatpushed your kind to the edges of the worldand then brought them in for experiments. If you don’t, you’ll be turning against your ownkind for the sake of the planet itself. There’sno in-between here — this war will engulf the entire planet, and your characters play apivotal role in it.Of course, none of this is written directlyinto the rules; it’s just assumed in the back-ground. If you want to strip out the monsterclasses and use them as is in your own game,there’s no extra work that needs to be done.The same goes for the new statuses and itemtypes.
Why Monster Mash?
Valent Games has had good luck with monster-oriented supplementsin the past (see
The Other Side
 , our d20guide to playing monsters as PCs), soI thought we’d give it a shot again.
Console’s
tongue-in-cheek approachalso makes it perfect for this kind of upside-down play. There’s just some-thing inherently funny about playinga two-foot-tall sprite with a 30-foot-talltitan sidekick.Also, we could use some extra cash.Mostly, though, the idea kept stick-ing in my brain and I had to write. A lotof game designers have this tendency:we get interesting ideas and not onlyhave to put them on paper, but haveto put them out for other people to seeas well. It’s intellectual exhibitionism, Isuppose.
