    I'm sorry did you say nineteen pages solely about the stat block?!

    Oh my.

    Hey, I have to be thorough.... It is a Magical Society book after all..

    My driving design principle for this book was to make it as easy as possible to use a single source to make monsters and to give GMs a whole bunch of ideas about monsters by using the existing monsters as general guidelines. Once you see the freebie you'll have a good idea of what I mean by that somewhat vague statement.

    And by the way, what are you people doing up at this hour? I's 2:30pm here in India... crazy gamers...

    Likewise, mine is printing as I type this.

    I'd just like to go on record as stating that this is a truly fantastic thing you're doing here, Joseph. I've seen some pretty rough monster stats in my days as a reviewer, and I really think that anybody intending to publish a book or PDF with monster stats ought to at least download this freebie, if not purchase the full-blown A Magical Society: Beast Builder PDF when it comes out. It could really help their credibility in the long run.

    Thanks John, from you that means quite a bit for us. I don't know if you noticed but we've turned you into a verb in the introduction... You shoulda (TM) your name...

    Our goal with this book was to make it a mad book, a book that hopefully will be so usefull that anyone making monsters will reference it. And it is pretty mad, a whole book about monster making from conception to execution. If we've done it right, even the most hardened DM will find something in it he'd never thought of before.
