Nice. Stuart Marshall will love it... that's his monster, after all.

Fell Manticore: noticed that the intent was for the creature to have stats and description matching the Displacer and Manticore but that was never actually validated with the core rules where they appear.

Should probably not fly that much better than the normal manticore.
So Movement: 40' Fly 60' (10') instead of Fly 90'

Also, like the Displacer, the first attack should be an automatic miss.

So, "imposing a -2 penalty on opponents’ attack rolls and granting it a +2 bonus to saving throws." should be "resulting in any character fighting a Fell Manticore for the first time missing on his or her first strike and suffering a -2 penalty on attack rolls thereafter."

Here is the Trobold. Let me know if this will work. The Humming Spider is next.

I tend to gloss over new monster entries that don't have illustrations. "Trobold, kobold-troll hybrid...ho hum..."
But now that I've seen the nasty little beast I'll definitely use it!

Very nice 8-) I've added it to your art folder in Projects with your other images for FG2. I do some initial re-sizing and adjusting levels, but know Solo usually has to tweak at least some images for layout.

That is an outstanding image!
Yes, nothing like an image, especially a really good one to make otherwise (seemingly) bland entries come to life!

Kudos!
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

So true. I keep re-reading the field guides and there's always some without illustrations that I had forgotten.
