FWIW, I'd find a big book of real critters a lot more useful than a big book of made-up critters. The former saves me a lot of research and effort. Assuming of course that said critters have CP totals so that they can be used with Ally and Alternate Form.

I'm with the fine sir_pudding on this one. I'd rather have statted and CPed real-world creatures.

Hmmmm... that might have to be my next project.

Or, in the right campaign, as characters.

Why not submit a proposal, then?

I did, last year, for a predators e23 book. At the time I was told that SJG was "evaluating other approaches to the bestiary line" and that they were "close to a resolution" on that.

I've become somewhat gun-shy about submitting bestiary-related materials; that was the second rejection on the same general subject (the other being for something that I was working with Scott Maykrantz on).

Also, just checked, and all of the bestiary listings have been removed from the e23 wish list, which (based on what Steven Marsh wrote to me a year ago) suggests that there is in fact something in the works, and they don't want submissions at this time.

Also, since no one has mentioned this yet...

I'm reluctant to reveal things in the planning stages, but I can confirm that the wheel turned another few degrees on GURPS Bestiary this week. It isn't just parked.
Of course, there's been no mention of it since, so it may have been dropped again...

It's my understanding that GURPS Bestiary has been attempted and put on hold more than once, due to a variety of factors. I can imagine how difficult it must be to put together: it requires more art than most other books and is 99.9% crunchy.

Everybody lighten up, please. Thanks! Once people start naming names, things go south. Let's just stay on topic. I'll write a post to lead by example . . .
