The thunderherder is in Sandstorm. It's now called an ashworm.
The marut is in Monster Manual (under Inevitable).
The soul beckoner appeared in Monstrous Compendium, Greyhawk Appendix, and is on the Creature Catalog.

Thanks very much, I'll take the thunderherder and the soul beckoner off the list. The marut stays on though, because the version from Legends & Lore is a creature made from the wind, and not the cuddly inevitable from the MM3.5 :).


First Post
I'm not familiar with the 1st edition guardian familiar, but the Kingdoms of Kalamar adventure "The Root of All Evil" contains a creature of the same name.


Shirokinukatsukami fan
I've just compared the guardian familiar on page 27 of The Root of All Evil with the version in the Fiend Folio and they are clearly intended to be the same creature, so I'll remove it from the list. (The guardian familiar also appeared later in expanded form in Dangerous Denizens: The Monsters of Tellene.)

rockin! i personally would still consider those "fair game" in terms of the CC, and/or sending in to Paizo. for example, i don't know if shade wants me to spill the beans just yet, but we submitted one of those to the Wandering Monsters feature for Dungeon and it was accepted. :)


Monster Junkie
It means they are non-WotC IP (and therefore questionable whether they can go up in the Creature Catalog).
