Bulette art. Ah...

Is it just me, or does Prescott excel at the action shot?

Excellent it all falls into place.


Three previews from the vault in a row...nice. Purty colors...monsters...life is good. Somewhere, Yoda is happy.
I wonder if DDR's mock-up cover will be replaced today?


Now that is not a cute landshark. Which is just as it should be. Huge critters that eat through rock and consider everything that moves should not be cute.

It does look more sharky that way.

Yeah, he does great action shots, that's for sure!!! Very dramatic poses, great movement in the shots, everything...pure dynamics.

From the look of that picture, bulettes are going to remain Huge, instead of Large, as in 4E.

If so, could their stats be upped to reflect that size?

They always seemed to have too few HD and Str for a creature that big, which was possibly from their stats being frozen from 1E ,while other creatures (giants, dragons, etc) were given revamps, to surpass them.


I'd love to have stats for both a younger, large bulette, and an old, huge one. This would address both the appropriateness issue that Snorter is raising, the availability of miniatures, and a factor that is missing in our treatment of many creatures, except for dragons: growth.

Sidenote: Wouldn't 1e bulettes fit in our large category?

It is a side of Amiri we haven't seen before ;)

As far as I know, the PF bestiary will have rules to degress critters - if you need that baby bulette or tarrasque or something.

Of course Dungeon Critters Revisited won't have different stats, since it revisits the monster's flavour, not its stats.

Unless they change the concept significantly from other Revisited books (which I doubt, Paizo doesn't change something that works), it will remain huge. As I said, the book is about new flavour (that stuff almost completely absent from 4e monster manual), not new stats.

Is there a minimum requried HD/Str for huge size?

I don't think so. If Paizo does, they'll change the stats - in the bestiary. But I don't think so. It doesn't seem important enough, especially since it hurts the feelings of our good friend, Backwards Compatibility.


What I like about Bircham's Ratcheek: Female gnolls are breasted like most land mammals. Just seeing Ratcheek makes me want to kill gnolls.


As I squint at the tiny pictures, trying to wake up, I think:
"Well, those are some ugly monsters all right, though poorly illustrated, and the Star Chamber is somehow not near as impressive as I'd always imagined it."

Then I quickly think, "I sure hope today is a double blog Wednesday..."

Grumpy Greenman goes to see if the coffee is done.

Over his shoulder at Dark Psion,

Spoiler:
"Yeah, and more of that would definitely help the morning morale..."


I hate to say it, but I had to look more than twice at that Ruhk to suppress the urge to say, "Pardon me, madam, but you appear to have an extra head protruding from your stomach."


Nice-looking Naga in today's blog!

Looking at it, I wondered if the yuan-ti obscured an obvious potential connection that may be made use of now: serpentfolk and the naga.

Looking at Tyler Walpole's tag, I conclude: that guy loves drawing snakes.


Yay! A big red dragon to kick the week off and to make one look forward to the penultimate volume of Legacy of Fire. My, that face says "malevolent brute." And the nose ring is a nice touch.

What sort of tower is that which he's on? It looks different.


Thanks for the Sepid Div send-off, boys. I've still got to get my mind around these new monsters...I thought I was looking at a shaitan at first.

Jason Engle's doing fine in Katapesh.

It is quite good, dangerous and strong without being a savage. Love the blade.

Right way to start my day - connecting to the internet on my new Netbook, while sitting in the airport.

Right way to end my week - boiled crawfish and family.


I hope you downloaded the Sepid Div when you went online at the airport, so that it could be up on the screen at the dinner table during the family meal.
;)
Enjoy the birthday Netbook, Aberzombie!

A shaitan, he says.

Harumph.

;)


Oh, come on. The illustration looks kind of jewel-toned and stony and genie-like. I'm not talking about the design, for cryin' out loud...

Jus playin', baby. Jus playin'.


You big fat published mantis you!


Get a room you two!


Yay David!

...and yay Seoni!


Hey, no love for the interns and the four preview pic blockbuster in today's blog?

Great stuff. I especially love the tiger and the medusa.

The Bestiary is going to be so sweet. I cannot wait to get mah grubby hands on it!


David, if you do this every day, I will go to sleep at night singing your last name to the tune of a famous Julie Andrews song.

I preordered my books the other day (from a company that will remain unnamed). I'll have to wait a little longer than you, but it reduces the chances that I will suffer from spousicide. BTW, can you confirm Jacobs' 60/40 breakdown on new art?


I actually don't know what the breakdown is. I'll try to find out though.

And I'm having a hard time imaging how "Eitelbach" could ever be put to a tune :)


Are you sure you're just not gunning for an early reward?

I'll get you started:

Ei-tel-bach...Ei-tel-bach...
Every morning you greet me!
Pictures bright,
blog--alright!
Illustrations placate me!


A Daffy Duck moment, in which his singing is greeted by crickets chirping.

Sorry! I forgot to check on the boards! What is that from?

Ah-ha. You see, I am not good at this without actually hearing the music. :(


That's okay. Be good at the previewing thing. ;)


I have already voted, and voted for Paizo with a vengeance...(also, those friendly to the Third cause). You didn't really need to bribe me with that big beautiful pic, Wes. I'll just accept it as a love offering. Dave Allsop, eh?


Really? No love for the mite?

He looks like the Slowpoke Rodriguez of the goblinoids.
