Creatures Awaiting Upload & Current Conversions

Cleon

Adventurer
Echohawk provided this very handy list, which I think deserves a thread of its own, to help us keep track of were we are as far as updating the Creature Catalog goes.

I'll amend this list to add new monster conversions as they are completed.

The Conversion To-Do List and Current Conversion Requests threads should give some indication of upcoming conversions.

Sadly, the original Creature Catalog website is no more, but the monster conversions in it can be found in a new version currently available via the following handy links:

Since I've discovered how to do hyperlinks in the Creature Catalog, I suggest we add some of the template sample creatures as database.

For example, the Dire Lycanthrope template includes the Dire Werewolf, so I'd add a Dire Werewolf entry that just contains.

The Dire Werewolf is the sample creature of the Dire Lycanthrope template. See the Lycanthrope, Dire entry for its description.

I'd also tempted to make the Weresmilodon an entirely separate entry, since it doesn't have "Dire" in its name, it's only technically a Dire Animal for purposes of the template.

We've got ten sample creatures in the Mystaran Gargantuan entry. If they don't appear in the CC list, how will DMs know they can inflict the joy of the Gargantuan Spectre on their PCs?

If we could add this sort of thing to the index without a separate entry --- for example, a "dire werewolf" link that just goes to the dire lycanthrope entry --- I'd go for it. But I'm not sure about extra pages that are nearly empty. It just seems messy (even in hyperspace). I'll have to think about it. It would be good to link related entries, however, like all the Mossmutter ones.

Maybe darjr could figure out how to add an option for "extra" table of contents entries. I'm not sure how much trouble that'd be.

I'm not suggesting we list every statblock separately for every size and alternate form. More that we list creatures that are otherwise "hidden" inside a template.

In many cases, I'd be fine just adding an "(and young)" entry to the creature name.

Although it wouldn't hurt to have "link entries" for CC creatures which contains multiple related monsters.

In the case of the awaiting upload list, that would be the following. Bold Italic items are creatures in a template entry. Bold Red entries are creatures that would otherwise be "invisible" unless the CC viewer happened to open the monster entry it is a subsidiary off.

Yes, ideally we would have links in the Converted Monster list that would go directly to an anchor point within the monster, using <a name=Anchor></a>.

So if you click "Mystaran Gargantuan Gargoyle" in the CC list it takes you directly to a Gargoyle anchor point in the Mystaran Gargantua template.

We should ask Darjr whether he could set that up for us.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to do more than an "anchor link" for template examples at least in usual cases. Maybe some of the templates with lots of examples might have some broken out, not sure. It seems to me a good idea to follow the SRD/MM format.

The items you have in red should get their own entries, I think, with links from the "header" critter to them. For ex, the mosquito swarm should have its own entry with a link under the windigo.

Of course, this all opens up the idea of editing the whole CC, adding links to things in the SRD, etc. But that would take a bit of time.

Yes, but that's all down to whether Darjr is willing & able to modify the CC database so we can add "anchor link" entries.

Yes, and I'm also thinking it might be a good idea to split the more complicated multi-creatures into separate creatures.

The Infernites and Pasari-Niml may have three different "types", but they mostly share the same special abilities and stats so at a stretch we could just mention them in the CC name. The three different types of Weresloth are quite different in size and abilities, so we should probably just have them be separate entries.

e.g.

Infernite (includes Magician and Leader)
Pasari-Niml (Warrior, Noble and Calipha)
Lycanthrope, Weresloth, Giant
Lycanthrope, Weresloth, Ground
Lycanthrope, Weresloth, Tree
 

Cleon

Adventurer
There is one argument for having separate page with a "sub-monster" which links to a multi-monster page with the actual monster stats - multiple accreditations.

For example, the Gargantua "template" originally appeared in the D&D Companion Rules (1984), with Carrion Crawler, Gargoyle and Troll "sample creatures". However, the AC9 Creature Catalogue has a Gargantua entry which "is a gigantic fish of the carp family".

That's originally a different monster to the Companion Set "template" Gargantua, but we modified it to become a Gargantua Carp, Giant. However, it ought to have separate accreditation.

It'd be as easy or easier to add a note to the Gargantua Template about the Gargantua Carp being a renamed version of the AC9 Gargantua, though.

I've asked Darjr about the "Anchor Link" idea and he said he'll look into it.

He also asked who did the original coding for the CC database. Does anyone here know? I suggested he ask Morrus.

I'd agree with this philosophy, just base it on how different they are. The infernites and pasari-niml are sort of like formians, which have just a single main entry in the SRD. It would be reasonable to use potential anchor links for the formian-like subentries.

If darjr gets the anchor links going, I'd support going with the extra credit note and the anchor link.

I've asked Darjr about the "Anchor Link" idea and he said he'll look into it.

He also asked who did the original coding for the CC database. Does anyone here know? I suggested he ask Morrus.
Thanks for asking.

Well, there's a note from someone named Sam about doing something with the database software. Morrus may know who that is, but I'd think Scott Greene (Grazzt with no apostrophe) would know for sure.

I'm not sure I want to ask this much from darjr just right now, but the CC database almost seems like it would be easier to use if it just had fields for name, edition, type, and CR and then just a big field for plain html. That way, we could just copy in the whole statblock at once instead of one field at a time. I guess we'll see how user-friendly the database ends up in practice.

Yes, I was thinking that was all it needs, but you'd have to recompile all the fields into a new database to make that change, which seems a lot more trouble than it's worth.

The current format has the advantage that, theoretically at least, we can do all manner of field-comparisons if we wanted to (and had the coding skills to do so!.

Anyhow, with the templates I added I didn't bother with the fields, I just put text in the CR, description, creation, sample creature and credit fields.

That's what the Mystaran Gargantua and Weremouse templates have in them.

I might try doing it with the "proper" fields the next time I do a template, just to see what it looks like.

Incidentally, when you do the Jagwere, remember to add a line that its been renamed. Something like:

Note: The jagwere originally appeared as "Lycanthrope, Werejaguar" in Ravenloft Monstrous Compendium Appendix III: Creatures of Darkness (1994), but has been renamed to distinguish it from a standard Werejaguar (see here).

Which reminds me, once we finish the Great Cats conversion I intend to add a link to the Jaguar to the Werejaguar entry.

Some Fine Furry Friends!

Another batch of 10 has been added to the CC and removed from this list, namely:

Some Fine Furry Friends!
Racing into the creature catalog comes a batch of wild animals and magical beasts native to the Prime Material Plane.

Stalking in the lead come four felines: the prehistoric spotted lion, the jungle-haunting jaguar, the cunning giant lynx of the taiga forests, and the small but ferocious wild cat. Swimming behind them is the lissom "water beast" potamotherium and its giant cousin the dire otter. Crashing through the jungle thickets comes the elephantine onco, watched from the branches by the dawdling tree sloth. Scurrying at the tail-end are two supernatural rodents: the desert's water-dowsing jarbo and the illusion-weaving spectramouse.

You can remove the blazozoid, fire phantom, firethorn, flame roper, flame swallow, gaund, living ash, and the fire phantoms. The fire phantoms became 3 critters. They were easy enough to separate on the fly, but we may want to revisit other creatures that need splitting (like possibly the infernites).

This batch also includes magical beasts (flame swallows and gaunds), a plant (the firethorn), and elementals for summoning (the fire phantom and the least, lesser, and greater flame spirits).

Since we're reposting here, should we retire the "10 Creatures Added to the CC" thread?
