I think we have different ideas about the word "monster". What I take
your meaning as is organized, intelligent monsters. Like orcs and those
naccrophiles or what ever their names are. Yes these would be effected.
Orcs are PCs and necrophiles are to far away to really matter. Monsters
like wolves, goblins, man eating plants, big cats etc. would have
presumably been killed already near cities and such before the cataclysm
occurred when mortals first began to make their civilizations and
cleared out the nasties. There would be a time before these creatures
start to retake the lands now void (after the cataclysm). During this
time mortals will be rebuilding their cities and cultures. They would be
relatively safe if they stay somewhat near ( several kilometers) the
starting locations. If they do travel out in small numbers they will be
killed but if they organize and cooperate they can defeat these
monsters. Anyway that's the way i see it if you you have dissenting view
on this please post it for discussion.
