One Stat Block, Five Systems

So, I set up a challenge for myself: Can one stat block represent enough data for several popular systems that the creature could effectively be used in combat? In other words, could all the necessary stats and information be condensed into one stat block?

Here’s what I’ve come up with, focused on the systems most useful for a post-apocalyptic setting:

Mutant Lizard Scout
Level 3
D&D/Gamma
World 4E
Savage
Worlds
FATE Apocalypse
World

Strength 13 (+1) d6 +0 1 Weird
Dexterity/Agility 17 (+3) d8 +1 1 Hard
Constitution/Vigor 13 (+1) d6 +0 0 Cool
Intelligence/Spirit 10 (+0) d6 +0 0 Sharp
Wisdom/Smarts/Will 10 (+0) d6 +0 0 Hot
Charisma/Per 10 (+0) d6 +0
Speed/Pace 6 6
Initiative +3
HP/Toughness/Health 24 [12] 6 5
AC/Parry 15 5 +1 1
♣ Dagger (at-will) Attack
…damage
+6 vs. AC
1d10+3
d6+3 +1 3
♣ Sling (at-will) Attack
…damage
R15, +8 vs. AC
1d8+4
R12/24/48
2d6
+1 3
♥ Perception/Observation +5 d8 +1
D&D/Gamma World Fortitude 13 Reflex 14 Will 13
FATE Aspects Primitive Savage (1)

A few notes:

  • Apocalypse World attributes aren’t equivalent to D&D‘s, so they’re listed separately.
  • Combat-related rows are colored differently, to make them a little easier to see.
  • Rows that start with ♣ are attacks; rows that start with ♥ are skills.
  • Any elements specific to one system are listed in their own rows at the bottom of the stat block.

If you want to use this stat block yourself, or modify it for your own uses, go ahead.
