Do you guys really intend to switch over to 4E when it comes?

It's just me 'cause I don't intend to leave 3.5, but that would be heartbreaking. :(

Based on what I've seen so far, no, I won't be switching.
I'm also unlikely to be switching, for a number of reasons - what I've seen so far, the sheer number of 3.5 books I own being just two.

Then again I never bought any 1e or 2e AD&D books but moved from BECMI/RC D&D straight to 3e.

Yes and no.

I fully intend to buy the 4E core books and start a new campaign using the new rules. (And who am I kidding, I'll most likely be buying all of the 4E books as they come out, just like I did with 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 3.5th edition...)

But I don't intend to switch my current campaign over to the new rules. It seems as if 4E is different enough that that would be jarring. We'll most likely continue that campaign using the 3.5 rules until it reaches it's natural end.

You know, I will probably check out the 4e SRD whenever it's available, but I'm in no rush. I've got plenty of 3.5 stuff, and the 4e flavor changes just leave me cold.

Unrelated question (though it's on my mind b/c I'm thinking about different versions of the same monster as well as similar monsters -- see here): Just noticed that we recently converted a number of creatures that planewalker converted (and put in their Denizens of Inner and Transitive Planes PDFs), including the mephits and wavefire, for ex. Do we want to try to avoid conversions other people have done in order to reduce the size of the unconverted list?

The numbers (and links) at the beginning of this thread already exclude all the Planewalker conversions and any other 3.X conversions I've been able to find on the web. I'm only counting creatures that haven't appeared anywhere else (that I'm aware of) in 3.X form.

So avoiding creatures that have already been converted won't shrink this list. But it would make the list shrink faster! ;)

That's what I thought! ;)

I've been trying to focus mainly on the completely unconverted (per Echohawk's excellent indices).

However, I do throw in the occasionally already-converted creature, either due to it being on the Current Conversions Requests thread, because it thematically matches another creature we're working on, or simply because I want to. ;)

Good idea.

I've also been trying to focus rather heavily on the magazines, since they have the largest number of unconverted creatures, and are least likely to be done by anyone else. :)

If you leave off the "other peoples' IP" creatures (White Dwarf, Diablo, Lankmahr) which we probably can't post in the Creature Catologue, we're almost down to 1,500.

1508 :). I've edited the initial post to separate out the two types of IP. And listed them from least to most creatures left, for a change.

Very nice!

As an aside, it's interesting to note that the bulk of the unconverted creatures in most categories seem to be either animals, vermin, or variant humanoid races. The more "realistic", the less interesting, eh?
