Default Bestiary Pre-Release

I've never actually looked, but I sure hope that the Colon Worm has little resemblance to my lower GI tract. Yikes!

Ach, it's disappointing to see that only some of the beasties found in the pages ofHexagram are included.

I guess length limits might have forced their hand. The goal here seems to be coverage of the core monsters from the LE book (because when they surveyed us we strongly voted in favor of that), plus some Hexagram beasts and some new things just to keep it fresh. If you met all three of those goals and didn't cut any corners you would probably end up with a 500 page book. Presumably they didn't like that, either as a writing task or a business decision.

Nope; I've have no problem.

After the Bestiary is released I might submit a sample Stone Ant hive for hexagram, complete with defensive towers. Along with some notes for bandits and other monsters to have moved in.

60 pound Wolverine: chases off bears.
500 pound 2-hex Giant Wolverine: chases down bears.
3000 pound 4-hex Monster Wolverine: Usually found chewing on fresh dragon bones.

I had had my email bounced, early am on the 15th. I emailed Phil and he said he'd have the team look into it. Seems to be working now.

Yes, but only because I spelled it "beastiary" rather than "bestiary."

I like the sound of that 4 hex version but don't see it in the Bestiary. Is that tucked away somewhere I didn't see, or is this just a figment of your imagination?
