DRAGON Magazine monster index!

Wow, now I'm getting crap for the armadillephant! That's a welcome change -- usually I only get crap for the duckbunny from that article! :D

But hey, if it helped inspire Erica to develop her "Hybrid" feat, then I guess some good came from it, huh?

Ah-ha!

So you are THAT Richards!

Well, however much flak you've gotten for the duckbunny, I'd say you more than made up for it with your other work. I'm a big fan. :)

I'm not sure why there isn't anything for Dungeons #85, 88, and 90, but there's a a good chance I just forgot to update my files for those issues. It's also possible that I stopped being as meticulous as I was for #84, instead of there being a sudden drop-off in the numbers of new monsters. But in any case, this ought to be a good start, if anyone else wants to throw in their own observations.

Come to think of it, I know I'm missing some monsters: I'm positive there was a wooly mammoth (or something similar) listing in "Glacier Season," whichever issue that was in. And where's the kurge? I remember it was in the adventure with the Tharizdun cult. Okay, this apparently isn't an example of my best compilation work. Don't hold it against me, okay?

There were stats for a mastodon or mammoth (can't recall which) in the "Glacier Season" adventure. I don't recall the issue either, but there was one of the two monsters mentioned above in it.

hey, i liked the armadillephant - don't take my sarcasm seriously. ;) and yes, if memory serves me, discussing that creature sparked the idea discussion that led to erica's hyrbid (aka abomination) template. :)

ToH in a matter of weeks!

32 - Scorpiorc, koasp, antold, woblin, skag

Scorpion - orc, Koalinth (sea hobgoblin) - asp, ant - kobold, wombat - goblin and ? I'm at a loss for the last.

Am I right ?



BOZ said:
37 - Neutral dragons (crystal, topaz, emerald, sapphire, amethyst, Sardior the Ruby dragon) (That's Not In the Monster Manual!, Arthur W. Collins)

Sardior is now detailed here on Wizard's site.

BOZ said:
38 - Brown dragon, yellow dragon, orange dragon, Tiamat, Bahamut (Leomund's Tiny Hut, Lenard Lekofka) Tiamat and Bahamut are first given diety status here, and appeared previously in the Monster Manual. They later appeared as the first 3rd edition creatures in Dragon 272, then in the Manual of the Planes, and Dieties and Demigods.

The Brown dragon is in its 3e avatar in Monster Compendium: Monsters of Faerûn.


BOZ said:
51 - The winged folk (Al Karak Elam) (The Winged Folk, William Lenox) The winged folk later appeared in the 2nd edition as the Avariel in the Complete Book of Elves, and in Monstrous Compendium Annual 2.

Don't know the date, but they also appeared, under the name of Ee'aar, in the Savage Coast Monster Compendium (Mystara/Known World/Red Steel). See attachment. The Savage Coast MC may be downloaded freely from this page on Wizards' site.

BOZ said:
92 - Scalamagdrion (Pages From the Mages, Ed Greenwood) The Scalamagdrion later appeared in the 2nd edition in Pages From the Mages and in Monstrous Compendium Annual 3.

The Scalamagdrion (typo corrected) is present in its 3e incarnation in Magic of Faerûn.

256 - Plague sidhe, plague spreader, parthoris gorgon, g'grokon (Heretic II: Creatures of Parthoris, Daniell Freed)

G'grokon ? I like the name. I even love the name. Any French man dreams about killing all the g'grokons.

Richards said:
272 - Crow's-nest dragon, geyser dragon, mole dragon, pavilion dragon (Diminutive Dragons, James Wyatt)

Crow's-nest dragonnet -- I saw a conversion of them on a website (found back with a bit of googling), back at Eric Noah's time... Found the idea very cute. I'd like to get a good picture of them.

Right about the scorpiorc and the antold, but koasp = kobold/wasp, woblin = wasp/goblin, and skag = scorpion/kobold/ant/goblin.

Annual #4 - Suzara the Scold, Boldovar the Mad, Merendil the Bloody, Melineth the Grasping, Luthax the Fiery, Xanthon the Baneful (THe Ghazneths, Troy Denning)
Are these 3rd or 2nd Edition? If this is second, has anyone got a conversion?

Thanks ;)

i don't know of any conversions of the ghazneths (they're 2E). i've gotten several requests for them, but i'm just not interested in them enough to do them myself.

I'll try to dig out my Annual #4 and maybe start converting monsters. When I read the Cormyr trilogy, I was really interested in the concept of old foes of the realm coming back to haunt today's king. It would fit perfectly in my Birthright campaign! ;)

ugh... it's going to be a pain to go back and fix them all... therefore i will procrastinate on it as long as i can. ;)

can you tell me which ones, specifically, you found not to work?

Horast, Whiz-bang beetle, Frosts, (Sardior has now an official conversion there), the Flolite, Selm "Prince of Possessors", lythlyx, golden ammonite, Raumbusun, carnivorous flying squirrel, bhaergala, xaver, hamadryad, Anuchu, giant capybara, wild halfling, leshy, luposphinx, musical spirit, sashalus, wendigo, wood golem, uldra, hungry dead, Searechter, Black troll, caiveh, cynamolgus, diurge, jor, rock troll.

From the first post.

Basically, all the .asp are now .php. So, the easiest thing to do is to edit the post, Ctrl-A, Ctrl-X, open wordpad, Ctrl-V, Ctrl-H, replace ".asp" by ".php", OK, Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, return to edit window, Ctrl-V, submit.

Then, repeat with post 2, etc.
 


66 - Euparkeria, compsognathus, miniature animals, vulture, carnivorous flying squirrel, hawk/falcon, animal skeletons (Leomund's Tiny Hut, Lenard Lekofka) These creatures all appeared later in the Monster Manual II (wherein the miniature animals are called minimals). They all wound up in 2nd edition, but I don't feel like looking up where they wound up.
The minimals (under Mammal), falcon (under Bird), hawk (under Bird - also listed as Hawk, Large), vulture (under Bird) and animal skeletons (under Skeleton) appeared in the Monstrous Manual in 2nd edition. I believe they appeared other places too, but I'm not sure.
67 - ... crab spider ...
90 - Sinister, night hunter, werebat, hundar, gloomwing, azmyth (Bats That Do More Than Bite, Ed Greenwood) The sinister, night hunter, werebat, and azymth later appeared in the 2nd edition in Drow of the Underdark and MC11. The gloomwing and hundar later appeared in the 2nd edition in MC11 (the hundar became the hendar). The night hunter, sinister, and werebat appeared in the 3rd edition in Monsters of Faerun.
108 - Pernicon (The Pernicon: A New Version, John Nephew) The original version of the pernicon originally appeared in the Fiend Folio.
All except the hendar/hundar and the crab spider are in the 2nd Edition Monstrous Manual. The crab spider was in the Basic D&D set, also.
126 - Dracula (Vlad Tepes), vrykolakas, baobhan sith, ch'ing shih (Hearts of Darkness, Tom Moldvay)
The baobhan sith was in 2nd edition, in one of the Ravenloft Monstrous Compendium Appendices.

102 - Bushdog, coyote, dhole, dingo, feral dog, fox, hunting dog, jackal, wolf, dire wolf (A Collection of Canines, Stephen Inniss)

If it's of any help, there are four more creatures in this article - the cave hyena, the spotted hyena, the short-faced hyena, and the striped hyena. :)
