Was there a miscommunication or something? Not criticizing it, I mean, a GM can say they look different, but I'm curious.It's partially based on that, yes. Sometimes art comes in and isn't quite what was envisioned, and in some cases it's too late to make changes. Other times we deliberately veer away from an established look to try to define a new look for a creature, for whatever reason. Not sure which of these two took place, or if it were both, or if it were a third reason.
And here I thought it was the Pathfinder version of the Asperi (from the D&D Monster Manual II)...
Staying on topic: How's Shimmy doing?
And thanks for continuing with this thread for so long!
<edit: The spelling of Shimmy's name - sorry.>
