    D&D General Evidence from the Arneson vs Gygax court case, including early draft of D&D with notes

    And would go with how the suffix "-man" was used up until about 20 years ago as nonspecific...how "fireman" "postman" were not necessarily meaning "men"...and "mankind" etc. Hence I agree that "fighting man" (which I do remember being used in the late 1970s) was not implicitly gender-specific at...

    The Rise And Fall Of Evil Genius Games

    disagree - bipolar is rare and episodic, and usually when people are unwell they come to the attention of hospital/police etc. But to be honest, "diagnosing" anything remotely is not prudent

    Might be easier to just do the 6 from BECMI and go from there....

    ok start with AC 16 for white and we can go from there

    5E: Monstrous Arthropods for Fifth Edition

    Sounds good - am imagining a high AC from tough exoskeleton plus high dexterity - maybe starting at 18 for the white? if we tone down to CR 0.5/1/2/3/4/5 then...?

    Agreed - ok, shall we aim to make them CR 2/3/4/5/6/7 for white/black/green/blue/red/gold dragonflies?

    I think I'd go with Mystaran Dragonfly, all things considered

    Well it depends what we see as canon really- in Mystara/BECMI they were just Dragon Fly - so strictly speaking, iuf that is the canon then we are stuck with that as a name alternates could be draconic odonatid?

    ok they look all good to me (but my eye for detail is not great). So the Mystara dragon flies have the same ascending size/power as corresponding chromatic dragons (I guess we ignore Bergmann's Rule then)

    It annoys me how 5e is vague or leaves out some sizes (e.g. giant heights). I think more info is better than less. Regarding the nymph/larva text issue - the answer/algorithm is the simplest that doesn't introduce amibguity. Happy with blindsight at a greater distance as well.

    Looks good - two "incredible/-y" near each other - I'd substitute another word maybe

    I'm avoiding statting them up proactively as I seem to always get something wrong - so just making verbal suggestions for these when you take the lead

    Titanic Tropical Dragonfly sounds really fun... Giant Maganeura....

    5E: Monstrous Arthropods for Fifth Edition

    ah ok. many years since L glanced at them
  15. Casimir Liber

    5E: Monstrous Arthropods for Fifth Edition

    They've all got such huge multifaceted eyes....so yes, I reckon perception proficiency is a must! Re cool varieties - am keen on the BECMI chromatic "dragon" flies -espeically as I have Tiamat as a villain warping critters!

    Wow...a want list. Been busy but impressed. 5e does lack for invertebrates...

    What adventure module have you pillaged the most without using the main plot?

    actually Witchlight aside...the plots of the published WOTC adventure books are pretty meh. So pillaging is a default position

    Giant dungeons from Storm Kings Thundar.....earth cultist lair from PotA

    I have no problem with bitey munchey larvae - they could do significant munching damage. All other stuff looks good.
