Thanks!! Going thru it now!

Edit: Okay they do not appear to have a monster section.  I guess Ill try to see if they've collected the website material into some sort of critter compendium...

Okay Ive started Denizens of Dread and some of these are just unusable.  Boneless for example says CR is "3+ depending on Hit Dice" and nothing else.   Anyone know if there's errata?  Cause the book really needs it.

Poring over this for useful cheese  :flutter


I wanna go
Dragon --> add template X --> add template Y --> Humanoid or Animal that can bear live young
... because I haven't found one that can do it in one step like
Dragon --> add template X --> Humanoid or Animal.

There are no templates that change your Type to Animal in official material.  The only Template that changes you to Humanoid is Incarnate Construct, and you have to be Medium or smaller and humanoid in form.  So your best bet would be " Base Medium or smaller Creature + Half-Dragon or Dragonspawn + Template making you a Construct (there arent many) + Living Construct.

I am still working on this and new ideas for it, and ask for some patience.  The results of my disability hearing are due and he possibility that i will likely be thrown to the wolves is fucking with me.

I understand how much work this is. Any word on getting this into tabular format? It will make the data suddenly very, very useful.

Fire in the SKy can move forward with the ones he was doing if he wishes.  I'll be working more on tables once I get all the data collected in the current format.  The immediate problems have passed so I may have some free time shortly to just plow through it.

One of the older Planewalker templates appears to have been left unfinished or gone unrevised by the one poster who did them all.   Should I include i, and if i did do you think they'd mind if i filled in the blanks?

Include it, but leave the blanks. Label the blanks as BLANK or something similar so it is clear that sic erat scriptum. That way anybody looking for it may find it, and be aware that it is unfinished and ready to make his own judgements as to what should be in the blanks.

It's magma element creature.  It's obvious it'll add subtypes bu it doesn't mention which ones ( a lot of the elements only add one subtype or add new ones like Lightning, which are never explained).  It also only affects a few Creature Types, unlike the others which affect most Types.

Okay but for deciding on the aforementioned Magma element template all the templates are listed, assuming i haven't missed anything or made mistakes (will be proofreading now).  Then progress can finally be mad eon doing other things.
