One last OSR Eeveelution

I kind of feel like I should have something a little more weighty for my first post of 2017...but I suppose this'll do.  After missing #MonsterMonday yesterday (due to one final surge of holidays), I now present the last of the Eeveelutions (so far), translated to generic OSR terms.  Here is the Generation VI monster known as Sylveon...

(As always, I get these icons from the awesome site Game-icons.net, which has tons of amazing bits of art to use in games, completely free of charge!  The "cards" I post here are proportioned such that they can be printed out at 2.75"x3.75", with 1/8" then trimmed around the edges to bring them to standard poker size...and I've now added dotted lines for the trim...)

Sylveon is a little more...I dunno, abstract(?) in the elemental sense...than previous Underground Elemental Beasts, since its Pokémon type is Fairy.  That's not really an element.  It's not even a quasi-element like Mind or something.  But with an attack called Fairy Wind, Air seems like a reasonable element, doesn't it?  So...that's what that icon up there is supposed to represent...the element of Air...weak to Air and resistant to Lightning.


One more note on Underground Elemental Beastfighting...I'm starting to play around with incorporating these into an RPG campaign and/or competitive game unto itself, so I also started playing around with cardbacks.  Here's one of my first go's at it...

I hope everyone's 2017 has started out on the right track!


  1. I think this is a fine post to start the year with. I'm a fan of evee and its evolutions.

    My first post of the year was a succubus, so while I feel I'm starting out with something near and dear to my heart, it's not quite profound. ;)

    1. Ha! I'll accept that! (Although succubi might have a general appeal that Eeveelutions lack...)
