The Stymphalian Bird is in the Tome of Horrors.

The super otter is actually a sea serpent, IIRC. I'm not sure if that makes it an animal, dragon, or magical beast.

Curious. The stymphalian bird from ToH doesn't credit the earlier Dragon/Dungeon versions, as is the case with most other ToH conversions. I suspect Scott may have developed those from scratch, rather than converting the earlier ones. But I think they are close enough to be dropped from the list anyway :)

As for the super otter, its description says: "This long, serpentine creature is thought to be a form of primitive whale." So I figured that it was probably an Animal.

The Cave Lizard and Warthog were determined unworthy of conversion (too similar to giant lizard and boar, respectively).

The Gigantopithecus and Macrauchenia have been converted (but await upload to the CC).


Monster Junkie

In the converting Prehistoric animals thread, we realized that the megatherium is actually in the 3e Fiend Folio, and the giant hippo probably doesn't differ enough from the dire hippo in Sandstorm to warrant conversion.

Also, the deinotherium is finished.

Three more down! ;)

Who can I speak with about potentially putting together a pdf/publication utilizing some ENWorld-hosted and -created content? I would like to put together a campaign setting compilation using prehistoric animals and some related content, much of which is being formulated right here on these forums - and I want to be totally aware of the legal implications and try to establish some sort of working relationship with those in charge... Please? :angel:

The Creature Catalogue is Scott Greene's site. Although he no longer actively participates in the daily CC conversions, I believe he still checks the site's e-mail (creaturecatalog@gmail.com).

As far as I know, all our conversion work is up for grabs, but the flavor text is probably off-limits due to paraphrasing WotC's original material.


So if I send an email to that address, I am sending it directly to the creator of the site, Scott Greene? Or is this an email that might refer me to him?

Any recommendations on how best to address this email and/or what is going to incite the best consideration of my ideas to publish content created here? Anything I should explicitly avoid?

List of unconverted animals updated. Xidoraven, I didn't remove the Giant Sea Turtle from the list yet because I'm not sure that it is quite the same creature as the Archelon. That's mostly because both creatures have (separate) entries in the original Monster Manual.

On the other hand, I haven't been paying terribly much attention to the conversion threads over the last two months, so I might have missed a consensus that they are equivalent critters...

A few more we've converted since my last post...

Real-world animals
Octopus, Deep-Dwelling [Dragon #190]

Variations on real-world animals
Octopus, Octo-Hide [Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Four]

Really? That is surprising - they really are the same thing; I know of no other creature that fits the bill of a giant sea turtle as Archelon - however, I cannot argue with a previous publication including them both as separate critters. :D


First Post
Dog, Wild [Monstrous Manual]
Horse, Riding [Monstrous Manual]
Horse, Wild [Monstrous Manual]
Badger, Giant [Monstrous Compendium Annual Volume Two]
Hyena, Striped [Dragon #102]
Rat, Giant [Monstrous Compendium Volume One]
Aren't these already in the Monster Manual?
Dog: "They can also be used for small wild canines such as coyotes, jackals, and African wild dogs."
Horse, Light: "The statistics presented here describe smaller breeds of working horses such as quarter horses and Arabians as well as wild horses."
Hyena: "The statistics here are for the striped hyena..."

And the giant badger and giant rat are dire animals now.
