Scalykind

A host of reptilians marches into the Creature Catalogue! First come the warlike gurrash lizardfolk, followed by their shazak lizardfolk rivals. Next are the chameleon men, the varkha lizardfolk, the desert-dwelling sis'thik lizardfolk and their xytar mounts, and the miniscule cayman lizardfolk and their riding lizards. Bringing up the rear are two strong swimmers, the nikt'oo and the ferry turtle.

I think it's handy to include links to the creatures, like so:

EDIT: I'd better update the Creatures Awaiting Upload & Current Conversions list too.

Slimy Fun
Not all oozy monsters are mindless beasts, so this week we present the thinking man's slimes. The subterranean puddings are three cunning ambush predators, and include the infectious Dense Pudding, the corrosive Gray Pudding and the resilient Stone Pudding. Joining them underground is the Flareater, which hungers after light sources, the Slithering Hoard, which lures in its victims by masquerading as a mound of treasure, and the Death Mold, which incapacitates its prey with chocking spores. Not all slimebeasts are oozes, in wet caverns can be found the aberrations Yphoz (and Yphoz Swarm) and the vermin Scum Creeper go sliming through damp caves and putrid swamps. Moving above ground, we encounter the tyrannical Greater Gibbering Mouther in the depth of a festering jungle, surrounded by a cult of worshippers it has enslaved using the Gibberspawn it buds off its body. Going still higher, in the depth of space exists the Silver Slime, an artificial ooze created to clean and repair the buildings it lives in.

Arachnophilia
D&D has a long and glorious tradition of spider monsters which we honour in this week's consignment. The Xakhun drow sail the skies accompanied by their special breeds of spider; the explosive Doomspider, parachuting Drop Spider, Leaping Sword Spider, and that able sailor the Rigger Spider. The psionic Hook Spider hunts the weakest fiends of the lower planes. The Brain Spider is an aberration that feeds off cerebrums and the strange reptilian-arachnoid Wall-Walker is a deadly subterranean hunter. Our remaining entries are bizarre hybrids: the Drow Spider-Destrier is half spider, half warhorse; the Zygraat Is half spider, half hawk; and the Spyder Plant Is half spider and half liana!

No Two the Same

No Two the Same
This week, we have a grab bag of critters, no two of which have the same type. Representing monstrous humanoids, we have the alan, the death minnow for magical beasts, and Rowan Cormaeril, this week's outsider, joins the rest of the ghazneths. The kitsune kasumi check in for the fey, facing off against the construct oculon and vermin addazahr swarm. We also have topiary plants, the tyerkow standing in for the undead. Finally, we have the aberrant xaver and humanoid yahoo.

Elementary, My Dear Monster

Elementary, My Dear Monster
Another batch of elemental-themed creatures arrives this week. The sand warrior and stone spirit are natives to the Elemental Plane of Earth, the vortex hails from the Elemental Plane of Air, and the border between Air and Earth is the home of the dust devil. Our next pair are outer plane guardians of morally opposite but equally chaotic natures; the air sentinel is a djinni-like protector of visitors to Bytopia, while the chaos sentinel is an evil brute who's little more than a fiery watchdog. The infernites are not fiends, despite their name, but are inhabitants of distant fiery worlds in the Prime Material Plane, who sometimes visit terrestrial folk using ships that can fly through the cold of space. These magma-bodied creatures live in strictly defined castes, including the rank-and-file infernite, the infernite magician and the sorcerous infernite leader. Finally, at the opposite end of the temperature scale is the ice fiend, a creature of cold and malice. The ice fiend is an awnshegh – a mortal creature that was transformed into a monster by it absorbing the blood of a slain god of evil.

I've realised that when I cut the uploaded creatures from the Creatures Awaiting Upload & Current Conversions I removed the handy links to the original location of the monsters, which might come in handy at some stage (if only out of historical curiosity).

Therefore, I've added the links to the original "Working Copies" of the monsters to each of our batches under the title Original Drafts in the General Monster Talk forum.

Honey, I Blew Up the Microorganisms

Rick Moranis is on the loose! Someone, or something, has magnified a bunch of microbes into macrobes that might just decide to eat your PC. We have giant versions of the amoeba, ceratium, elphidium, euglena, globigerina, gonyaulax (and gonyaulax swarm), noctiluca, paramecium, and peridinium. To top it off, there's the slime mold, which has amoeboid, swarm, slug, and sporocarp forms of varying CRs. It's like high school biology run wild!

Huzzah!

I've removed them from the Creatures Awaiting Upload & Current Conversions list.

Mites and Ghoulies
This week our monsters selection is divided in twain. Five are small but dangerous: the monkey-like rautym can dance together to produce mighty magic, the one-eyed tatalla are miniature assassins, and the pasari-nimal warrior, noble and calipha are horrible little ant-folk. The other five are undead or creatures that resemble undead. The human-headed bird spirit hama, the malevolent darksider, and the magic-item-possessing tarsardar may look ghostly but are not undead, while the drow vampire and kender vampire are genuine undead.

Aquatic Menaces
What horrors lurk in the water has long concerned prudent adventurers, and here are 10 more to add to their anxieties. The ocean hides the mighty Zakharan kraken and the colonial coral worm. A crab swarm of lesser monstrous crab may scuttle anywhere there is water, while the giant sand crab prefers beaches. The crystal nipper is a nasty little relative of the rot grub that fortunately only lives in glacial seas. Staying away from the ocean is not enough to escape these threats, for an entrails-eating kappa-ti turtle-creature or its vampiric kappa relative could be hiding in any freshwater stream or pool, or a pack of froglike fin-winged water leapers. Finally, the delphon, or songshark, swims the interplanar river Oceanus bewildering creatures with its music, although it only devours sapients when it's very hungry.

Snakes and Friends
Five serpents and five monstrous humanoids slither and stomp their way into the Creature Catalog this week. On the snake side, we have the poisonous giant fanged python, giant cobra, and aeserpent, as well as the constricting teak serpent. Snake grass is the serpent of the plant kingdom, and, among our monstrous humanoids, the megalofolk revere the yuan-ti. We also have the harrier and scathe as well as the cave kala and earth kala.

Good-oh!

I've amended the Creatures Awaiting Upload & Current Conversions list.

Incidentally, the Homebrew version of the Harrier has all its saves 1 point too low (I believe it used the Scathe's saves by mistake).

I changed them to the correct values (Fort +6, Ref +7, Will +5) in the version I uploaded to the Creature Catalog.

Vermin!

A whole bunch of creepy-crawlies invade the CC from the Cambrian era! Allow us to present giant versions of amiskwia, leanchoilia, marella, ondotogriphus, and wiwaxia. There's also the ship-sinking squid-like anomalocaris, the pilfering yohoia, and the armored ottoia and sanctacaris. Rounding out the batch is the devil wyrm, a subterranean worm-like magical beast that enjoys munching on humanoids. Player characters beware!
