Anybody else remember the threads on the old WotC forum where they were changing the names of the 3.5 splatbooks and feats? That was fun.

Sorry for the digression, but that would actually be quite an amusing monster, one players would dread (in a similar way that fighters fear rust monsters). You would have to make it adorable and defenceless so PCs weren’t tempted to beat the life out of it.

Big eyes and plush fur would be a must. And the players find out they’re cursed Kender...

A legitimate typo of mine the other day gave me this one:

Blue Dragon = Blur Dragon. It's so hard to see that you can't quite tell what colour it is until it's too late.

There's also

Ki-Rin = Ki-Gin. Psychic powers used when the Monk is drunk.
