More Nature Descriptors

(Jim Jones) #1

I really liked the list of Nature Descriptors that was offered up by Vanguard in the 100 Nature Descriptors thread.

I took all of the descriptors that were contributed in that locked thread, alphabetized them, and then started to add more own. This is a work in progress. I will update this thread when I have gone through all the letters. Feel free to add your own suggestions.

Would you be interested in contributing to the TB Wiki?

We have a similar list where the community has been consolidating monster natures, how to make monsters, and a spreadsheet of all the monsters from the forums.

https://sites.google.com/view/torchbearerwiki

If so, send me your Google account (email address) and I will grant access. My email is at the top of the contributor page (https://sites.google.com/view/torchbearerwiki/contributors) or you can PM.

We’d love to have you!
