I'm going to start going thru the beasties now, updating the categories according to this scheme, and applying the DnD Monster Template as I go. I'll be starting with CR1 creatures, if anyone else wants to jump in. --Oneiros 08:48, 25 July 2006 (MDT)

Update: CR1, CR2 & CR3 (Thanks, BD) creatures done, Creature Templates done, and two subtypes modified. A few monster illustrations added and Wiki templates tweaked. New, miscellaneous Categories created as the need arose. --Oneiros 15:13, 26 July 2006 (MDT)

Creature or Monster?[edit]

So, the problem has finally arisen. Before the "All" (And the "All Homebrew" because it would be miserable to re-categorize all the monsters that are now incorrectly categorized again...) page can be made, the categories have to change so the SRD and DnD Monsters are using the same categories. The problem is the SRD Monsters are "Creatures" and the DnD Monsters are "Monsters". So, should all the creatures/monsters be labeled as Monsters or Creatures? --Green Dragon 23:26, 29 November 2006 (MST)

Let me explain "creatures". "Creature" is the therm used in the SRD. My understanding is that the designers wished to use the generic term "creature", as opposed to the weighted term "monster." "Creature" covers everything from dogs and elves to kraken and balors. "Monster" is a 1.x/2.x term that is depreciated in 3.x as a generic term, but still gets used a whole lot in the SRD as well. Confusing.
My preference is to follow the SRD and use "creature". (No surprise there.)--Dmilewski 05:41, 30 November 2006 (MST)
I actaully agree with creature, and have agreed to it since I first saw it. Many of the "Monsters" are not monsters, but creatures. Saying "Monsters" does not give some of them justice. So, I will begin changing all of their categories to match the SRD's categories as these should be labeled as creatures. --Green Dragon 17:29, 30 November 2006 (MST)
How does it look? Anything I missed/did wrong? --Green Dragon 23:49, 2 December 2006 (MST)

Copyright Question[edit]

Are we allowed to translate copyrighted fantasy creatures from non D&D sources into D&D format? Like if someone wanted to create a d&d version of Godzilla? (I don't want to create that specifically, though.) Noname 22:27, 17 March 2008 (MDT)

Yes. --Green Dragon 00:08, 18 March 2008 (MDT)

Paladin Mounts[edit]

Is there any chance we could add a section for creatures modified to be a fair mount for a paladin? Zau 14:35, 15 April 2008 (MDT)

A section is not necessary, a category would be better. --Green Dragon 14:50, 15 April 2008 (MDT)
okaaayyy, how would i make one of those, the page i would put that on is edit blocked. Zau 14:53, 15 April 2008 (MDT)
Go to whichever creatures you think would apply to be a paladin mount. Edit them. Add, on the very end add [[Category:Paladin Mount]]. Press save page. Click the red category link (bottom of the page). Fill that page out with information. For every new creature you want to add to that page do not edit that page and add them, rather go to the creature and once again add [[Category:Paladin Mount]] to the bottom. Hope this helps. --Green Dragon 14:57, 15 April 2008 (MDT)
Thanks for the help. ill do that. Zau 15:00, 15 April 2008 (MDT)
Can you clear something up for me? am i suppossed to change the page to make it fair and add the category on the bottom, or add the catagory on the normal page and follow the link to creat the page there. Zau 03:22, 16 April 2008 (MDT)
If you just add the category onto the possible paladin mount page it will show up in Category:Paladin Mount. --Green Dragon 12:28, 16 April 2008 (MDT)
Changed it to Category:Variant Paladin Mount. --Green Dragon 12:35, 16 April 2008 (MDT)
Thank you. BTW; Where is the link to Category:Variant Paladin Mount aside from on this page? Zau 13:59, 16 April 2008 (MDT)
