I'm not sure that the following is worthy of conversion as its own entity:

Greater Margoyle
AC:0 HD:12 Mv:15 Int: Low Size: M
Align: CE THAC0/:9 Att:4
Dmg: 1d10/1d10/2d8/2d8
Spec Def: Immunity to normal weapons XP:6000

Greater margoyles are cousins of the margoyle. They both attack with
two claws, horns and a bite, but greater margoyles are stronger and
faster. They can be found in many of the same habitats as the
margoyle.

The ToH margoyle advances to 18 HD. The greater damage could be gained by taking Improved Natural Attack feats. AC is 2 higher, but I'm not sure that's enough to make it a unique entry.

Have you checked Candlekeep for conversions yet? Someone I've spoken to at the DL forums thinks that a lot of these have already been done somewhere.

You should really post these games on the Dragonlance and Dark Sun threads, as more people over there will know about them.

I believe that the enchanted draconians might have been dealt with, although I've not seen them myself. (While you have some DL experts checking in on your project, I suggest you ask on the Dragonlance thread for confirmation.)

Big Mac -- No, I haven't looked through Candlekeep for creature conversions. Thanks for the suggestion. Is there a specific section of Candlekeep for updated monsters? (A quick search of the site map didn't reveal anything obvious.)

The unconverted creatures from the PC games are already included in the setting lists (although most of them have been converted, so there are very few). That list of creatures from PC games you quoted was a mid-thread aside listing all of the creature that appeared in the PC game manuals, not just those still lurking in the conversion bin ;).

I don't think they've been specifically converted, but I also don't they aren't different enough from ordinary draconians to require a separate update. I only listed them up-thread because they have monster entries in the PC manuals that list them as "enchanted". If you do come across a specific update, though, I'd be curious to know where.

And many thanks for chipping in on this thread. I'm always interested in clues to updates of older creatures that I've missed :cool:.

Thanks for the clarification on stuff. I'm only answering this bit, because your other comments don't really need an answer (other than "ah right - I see now" :D ).

I must admit, I'm as baffled as you are. Candlekeep is the leading FR fansite and even has FR authors hanging around on their forums. They have a ton of useful information, but I find their website a bit hard to navigate around (at the moment). (If they improved their navigation I think they could be fighting Dragonlance Nexus and Planewalker for an ENNie award.)

I think their forums would be a good place to recruit helpers (or people who know the location of existing conversions). I'll post a request over in their Running the Realms forum and see if anyone comes over.

There are a few conversions/monsters in the "Alaundo's library" section of the site (check "scribes' gatherings") but no real section for conversions AFAIK. The Candlekeep Compendium also has monsters from time to time (not sure if they're conversions). However, maybe one of the Candlekeep mods can tell us more.

BTW, Echohawk, I've done the stats for the young and mature lichlings here and will be posting a PDF of them on my web page as soon as I can get the fluff written.

Just to let you know, you can scratch the lichlings off the list. I've finished them and put them up in a PDF ("More Realmsian Creatures") on the web pages in my sig.

  • Pleistocene Animals, Wooly Rhino - Animal
The dire rhinoceros in Fiend Folio appears to be the wooly rhino.

Got the quelzarn finished (and created the greater quelzarn) and posted in the More Realmsian Creatures PDF. Over the next day or so, I'll post it in homebrews.

From How the Mighty are Fallen:
  • Netherese Zombie - Undead

Finished.

From Ruins of Zhentil Keep:
  • Zhentarim Spirit - Undead

After reviewing this one, we found the small writeup in Monsters of Faerun to be an adequate conversion.

Netherese Zombie - Undead
Zhentarim Spirit - Undead
Fixed! The Zhentarim shouldn't have been included on this list in the first place; I had them indexed as both "Ghost, Zhentarim Spirit" and as just "Zhentarim Spirit" by accident :(
