Cleon, want to update the finished conversions lists? We're making some visible progress on these batches.

OK, that's looking closer. I did also mean the batch lists you did partway through the thread, though.

I've just looked at our old Converting Monsters from D&D Official Video Games thread and it looks like there are some creatures from Echohawk's list of Computer Game Creatures with Printed Stats the CC board hasn't converted yet.

I suspect a lot of them are simply advanced versions of existing monsters (I doubt Dark Queen of Krynn's "Huge Crocodile" is anything more than an advanced Giant Crocodile), or creatures that have official 3E stats (e.g. the "Sand Howler" is in Dungeon #110).

Still, there are a few left that seem to be variants or maybe even new monsters, like the Guard Yeti or White Gorgimera.

There are also a bunch of creatures on the Official D&D Video Game Index that aren't on the Printed Stats list which presumably only have "video game" stats.

If we can actually knock off another epic threat or two, that list is almost done! And I'd actually support saving the titan for later in order to include the gila monster with the lizard lord....

To speed up progress, we might try decreasing the number of active threads (some more). I don't see work letting up a lot any time soon.

I'm thinking we could simultaneously convert the Wolf Lord and Andromidus on separate thread to save some time.

It would help with that batch, though I think having fewer threads may help more in the following sense: I have a fixed (small) amount of time to post, so presumably we'll finish critters at the same average rate over the long term. But with fewer threads, each monster will take less actual time --- they'll come out more often rather than in bunches. Plus I may be able to remember what we're doing on each one better...

I'm OK doing whichever you prefer.

I can always write up some Homebrews for the Infinite Staircase thread if I get bored.:cool:

Sorry for the delay on things. Some family issues plus the usual work slam this past week...

Yikes, that thread is now a massive wall of text! I think I'll skip it in favor of shorter ones until I feel up to it...
The "Wall of Text" is mostly monster homebrews that you need not bother with regarding the current conversion.

The latest Kamerel-related post is about the shrunken monsters the Kamerel mage's transport/summon with their mirror magic.

The one before that concerns the "Plane of Reflection" the Kamerel can move to.

The one before that asks about Skill Ranks for the Working Draft Kamerel Warrior (plus a bit more concerning the "summon mirror monster" spell(s) of the Kamerel mage.

I've updated the Batches To Come post and the Creatures Awaiting Upload & Current Conversions list.

The Epic batch and Shapeshifters batch are now one monster away from completion - so we might actually have a CC update before too long!
Huzzah!

We've finally finished one of the Batches To Come, namely the skinchangers:

Skinchangers
Were-Things That Go Bump In The Night? Here!

Bird Maiden FINISHED [From Monstrous Manual]
Hyenawere FINISHED [From Al-Qadim Monstrous Compendium]
Leopardwere FINISHED
Loup du Noir FINISHED [From Dark of the Moon]
Lycanthrope, Wereleopard FINISHED
Seawolf, Greater FINISHED [From Monster Manual II]
Lycanthrope, Wererat, Greater FINISHED [From BECMI D&D]
Lycanthrope, Wererat Lord FINISHED [From Dungeon #62]
Ratwere FINISHED [From BECMI D&D]
Silkie FINISHED

The CC doesn't seem to be working at the moment, but we'll hopefully add the batch to it soon.

Yes. darjr is aware of the problem, though, and is working on it as he has time. But the CC really needs a new server, apparently, so it may take a while.
