Ack. Sometimes LibreOffice loses the styles for a few paragraphs. Probably what happened there.

Probably. Is that from the Field Guide? If so, are you properly credited there?

No, I'm wrong: I'm getting my different kinds of giant spider confused. The giant trapdoor spider was J.D. The shrieking tarantula was me. It's in the field guide and credited correctly there but missed off the credits for BF3. Not sure who wrote the Leaded Skeleton but that's also missed off the credits for BF3.

Now that I look at all this I see that we haven't got a stats page for the new monsters in this module. Need listings and credits for pangotherium and giant rainbow wasp (or just import them into the field guide 2 if that's easier).

Yunkers: Human Magic-User 6, AC 11, #At 1, Dam 1d3, Mv 40', Ml 9, XP 555

I don't like the race/class/level in parens; I'd rather have it be as shown above. I'm revising R32 to this standard, but we'll have to review it to make sure I haven't missed any.
I'm fine with this format, I just like the consistency ;) Will make a note to add something for this soon in both the adventure template and the style guide. Will also have to make a note to update the NPC statblocks in AA2, CS1 and 2, etc. etc. It never ends! :D

I'd say let's go ahead and have a "New Monsters" section/page in BF3, and if we want to also add those monsters to FG2 we can. I think we've done that in the past for new monsters that also ended up in FG1.
I like to point out spelling mistakes and post GIFs.

The Leaded Skeleton is mine, so my copyright (or my share of the copyright) in the whole book covers it. That, at least, does not require a separate statement. I know it's how it's supposed to be done, but I don't like how long the OGL can be in the monster books... it gets out of hand. So at least for those monsters that are mine, where my name appears in the copyright for the entire work, I don't want a separate statement for those monsters.

Oh, and Chi, I'm going to go ahead and work on R33 now. I've got two more pics from Al Cook plus the errors noted by Stuart above to fix. After I get it uploaded, if you guys want to review the OGL again and make sure everything that needs to be noted is noted, that'd be great.

Stuart, your Ogre Mage was missing also. So I've added the statement for both of them.

... wondering who put XP Nil on all the Normal Men? They are worth 10 points each, just like kobolds and other puny monsters.

Are the monster stat listings going in Field Guide 2, then? No problem if they're going in there rather than in the module, but at the moment some of them are nowhere.

Considering the currently-unknown status of FG2's release, yeah, they should be in there. You don't happen to know which ones are missing, do you?
