Are your game’s Tarrasques and Thoqquas distinctly unobservant? Are your Vargouilles not as stealthy as they should be? Are your Wights not reaching their full potential? These are just a few of the monsters in the SRD that have significant errors in their stat blocks, bringing their mistakes into your game. But now Cooper’s Compendium of Corrected Creatures fixes the problems you didn’t even know your monsters had!
This critical new series of books by ENWorld staff reviewer and 3.5 rules guru John Cooper presents thoroughly revised and corrected stats for the myriad creatures in the v.3.5 SRD. Features of Cooper’s Compendium of Corrected Creatures: OGL Monster Stats T – Z (Tarrasque – Zombie) include:
Corrected stats for all the monsters in the L – S sections of the v.3.5 SRD, plus the appendices on Animals and Vermin, that address often-overlooked elements like skill synergy bonuses, size modifiers, and shapechanging abilities. Entries that have received especially painstaking attention in this volume include the various forms of Lycanthrope, skill points for which are almost universally incorrect in the SRD.
Stat blocks for OGL creatures described or referred to in the SRD but not given statistics there, including the Scrag, Bactrian Camel, Indian Elephant, Web-Spinner Monstrous spider (seven stat blocks, sizes Tiny through Colossal), and Hunter Monstrous Spider (seven stat blocks, sizes Tiny through Colossal).
Improved organization of material, especially items not listed in the proper order.
“Cooper’s Comments” sidebars throughout the volume, which explain specific changes and provide guidance on how to most effectively apply them in the game.
This book and the series of which it is part are designed to be an invaluable resource for OGL game masters, players, and publishers alike. It is fully bookmarked and designed to be printer-friendly and easy-to-use.
Incorporating all official errata as well as corrections for errors that went unnoticed until now, this book presents the monsters from the SRD as they should be. Fix up your foes and run a better game with Cooper’s Compendium of Corrected Creatures!
