No need to rush, the supplement is used to waiting :lol:
Meanwhile there are other blanks to fill.

Comments on your level 3 encounters... I know I have a rep for killing players, but aren't the tiny statues (figurines?) a bit weak for level 3? Down-level monsters are usually only one level lower, and at about double numbers. I kind of feel the same about the lizard men, since they're only a level higher and still at low numbers compared to the average 4 to 8 PC group.

I do love the high-pitched shriekers though... :D

EDIT: I went ahead and put the high-pitched shriekers in slots 90 and 91.

Those figurines should be 2HD each agh, I started them as 1HD for their size, but they should appear in a huuuge number to compensate the encounter level.

I'd do it now but I'm on something else...
If someone would just make an index, a monster index you could say...

TPFox, you want "Tim Fox" for credits, right?

Guys, remember this is a d% table. The more times a monster appears, the more "common" it is. I'm reducing the numbers for some of the monsters that should not be so common in my opinion, but I'm willing to discuss how common they should be.

I'll push a new copy soon with at least some of what you guys have submitted, and thanks! If I miss crediting anyone, please let me know.

More notes... Wandering Monsters is meant to be a quick reference. I'm limiting descriptive text to basic attack and defense features; the book and page reference should be enough for the GM to fill in the blanks. This is the same theory we use in writing adventures.

Also, "special" monsters can be modified, or they can represent an unusual group of otherwise-ordinary monsters. Or monsters not usually found on random encounter tables.

Also found nixies on the Dungeon Level 1 table. Not sure how that got past me. You're not finding nixies without water, so they really don't belong in the dungeon.

Yes, Tim Fox for credits is fine. I hadn't meant to open up a new section on the "land of the lost." I was just reading through and typing in what I thought could fit the different sections. At this point, I have posted Field Guide monsters for Wilderness - Desert or Barren, Grassland, and Inhabited Territories. The feedback so far is that my choices for Desert or Barren, and Grassland land fit more of a Dinosaur theme. I'll hold off making corrections other than formatting (tried to shorten descriptions, and add specific weapons), as you requested above, until you get your Dino list going. I am really pleased that my post and few contributions here have got this project going again.

I've updated the current release in the first post. I omitted some monsters, mainly due either to being prehistoric (not ready for that yet, but probably in the next release) or not rare enough. In general, Field Guide monsters should be considered "rare" or "very rare." Rare creatures should appear on a given wilderness table no more than 2 or 3 times, and very rare creatures should appear at most once.

Ack. Tim, I didn't get that last post in the R21 I just uploaded... we crossed the streams, it seems. I'll get them for the next one.
