“Behold my true form and despair!”
What do you do with a boss monster that has multiple distinct forms, each with its own moves? Do you write it up as a single monster with a whole mess of moves, and just use the fiction to determine what moves are available? Or do you write up a separate monster for each distinct form?
I see that Ancient Vampire Lord uses the former method, elegantly stating the multiple forms in a single move:
But in that case, the most of the forms are common animals that probably wouldn’t require memory prompts for their moves. For boss monsters that transform into demonic chimerae or mythic creatures, would you follow the same pattern?
I reckon the correct answer is “whatever works for you”, but I was wondering if there are any examples from the field?
