Orrosh: The Sourcebook of Horror Reality

Below is a list of creatures that were converted from Torg to Dark Conspiracy. I only picked the creatures that were either not already in Dark Conspiracy or that I thought would fit. These are from the Sourcebook for Orrosh. Beneath each creature is a Dark Conspiracy Tie-In section, which are suggested ways to work the creature into the Dark Conspiracy Mythos. The GM can choose to use these creatures anyway he or she sees fit. This is why not a lot of background and “fleshing out” is written here – primarily to leave the GM with maximum flexibility without loosing the feel of the original creature design. Sections like The Mythology , The Reality , The Behavior and Reproduction are left open for the GM to interpret.
