For Bridget...The Dungeon World "It"

It, also known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown or Bob Gray (Solitary, Stealthy, Magical, Intelligent, Planar, Terrifying)
Claws or Bite (d12 damage)12 HP, 0 armor
Close
Special Qualities: Shapeshifter, Charms, Regenerates and can only be killed by magic or magic weapons

A monster of unknown origins, It originated before the creation of the universe itself in a dimension that is referred to as the "Macroverse"; the true form of It is a mass of destructive orange lights known as the "deadlights". It usually takes the form of a clown named Pennywise, which It uses as a decoy when stalking a child. It takes the form of a monstrous black spider in its home under the sewers, where It is revealed to be pregnant.The monster arrived on Earth in the form of an asteroid during prehistory. It awoke, fed on the settlers, and started a cycle of hibernation, in which It would sleep for almost three decades and be awake for approximately two years. Every time its hibernation stage finished, events of extreme violence happened. To feed on its prey, It transforms into the shape of whatever the victim most fears. Instilling this fear, the creature informs readers, is the equivalent of "salting the meat". It could feed on adults just as easily as children, but it preferred children because their fears were easier to embody into a single shape, making hunting easier.It has a variety of powers that include the ability to shapeshift, manipulate, regenerate and go unnoticed by adults. Coming face to face with the deadlights true form can drive any living being instantly insane, and It may only be killed by magic or magic weapons.

Instinct: Consume fearful children

Custom Move: If IT assumes its true form roll +Wisdom; 10+ your O.K.; 7-9 take -1 forward on all rolls directed against IT from now on and if 6 or less you are insane and flee gibbering until you next make camp.

Undead Troll

Undead TrollSolitary, Devious, Terrifying
Talons (d8 damage)12 HP1 armor
Close
Special Qualities: Regenerates all damage except acid and fire, Touch causes paralysis in non-elves


Actually a rare form of ghoul; an undead troll is a troll victim of ghoul attack that arises after death as an undead monster that can only be "slain" by fire or acid. Undead trolls do hate sunlight which causes them great pain and suffering without killing them. A single monster has been known to devour a whole village in the course of an evening. Reasonably intact victims of an undead troll will arise after death as ghouls.

Instinct: Devour the living!
