Some of the monster’s statistics are slightly better or worse than a simple number of dice. For example, “Mind 1D–2” means roll 1D and subtract 2 to obtain the result. Regardless of modifiers, no result can be lower than zero.

Animals have relatively low intellect. Subtract 4 from any Mind rolls they make. In addition, their Skill can only be used for things appropriate to the animal's type – climbing for a spider, flanking tactics for wolves, etc.

Constructs are not truly alive and lack weak points. Fighting tricks (Skill tests in combat) do not work on them, nor do any Mind effects that don’t work on undead.

Incorporeal creatures lack physical bodies. Such creatures can be seen, but heard only if they want to be. Non-magical physical attacks that successfully hit the creature’s Defense have a 50% chance (1-3 on 1D) of harmlessly passing through, causing no damage.

Undead are often soulless servants, with Mind and Skill 0 regardless of what the statistics block says. These puppets do not hesitate, flee or surrender. Spell-casting undead have normal stats as listed, are intelligent and free willed.

A swarm consists of 4+1D individual creatures, which act in unison as if they were a single weak enemy. By using an action a swarm may separate into several smaller swarms, or several swarms can join to form a larger one.
