What most people forget is that the creatures in the 1E Fiend Folio came for the most part from the pages of White Dwarf..yes that's right I said White Dwarf..when it was more than just a monthly catalogue of overpriced crap

I [love] be[ing] the bearer of [wonderful] news to the keeper of the Pathfinder Wiki [whose a great guy, but inexplicably nuts on this one:] the flumph was NOT in the 1E Monster Manual, and it was NOT designed by Gary Gygax.

In fact, the flumph appeared in the 1E FIEND FOLIO, and was designed by (LOL) TWO chaps named Ian McDowall and Douglas Naismith.

So.... no. [In your face, suckah!]

Nails in the flumph's coffin! Ha! I dance on it's grave!

PS There is so much behind that "LOL," that I simply do not have time to unpack it for you.

You should be ashamed of yourself. Now please do a sexy triapheg! Or an enveloper! Why stop at the flumph? A gorbel would look pretty slinky in that sexy number, too.

I know! You'd think a guy with leaves for a face would be more sympathetic to what is perceived as a "silly monster".

Can I make an appeal here for the Susurruss.Now that was a silly Monster.

I think we read this the same way, my foliage faced friend.

In my defense, I wasn't alive for the release of either book mentioned, so blame Dr. Jung for my link to the collective conscious failing me with little details. The point of the statement, factual errors aside, remains the same. Put the Flumph in an official Pathfinder product and it will appear in the PathfinderWiki. Until such a time, it is unjustly kept out of one of the internet's most important and valuable repositories of information.

I'll get to work on the Al-Mi'Raj and the dire corgi. I might be able to consult with Monte Cook--he's got a corgi.

I like carbuncles. They're treasure you kill instead of getting it out of a chest. Only problem is when they run. Maybe a too-tight swimsuit would reduce their movement rate?

well those are just the top picks so far

I need one with a bracket on the base so I can set a Dire Corby horn in it... It'll make for a really spiffy coup de gras.


Lessee sir, we got your basic masterwork pitchforks, and also:

Flaming Pitchfork, +2

Pitchfork, Flumphbane, +3

Greater Pitchfork of Persuasion, +5

Pitchfork of Ecclesial Defenestration, +8

Aw...vorpal, ya say? Nah, pitchforks can't be vorpal. But ah do got this here Keen Pitchfork of Speed, +1.

Okay, I guess I'll take the Pitchfork of Ecclesial Defenstration, +8 then. My DM allows us to have vorpal pitchforks, but I can see how those might be broken...

You don't want Vorpal, you want a +3 Heartseeking Pitchfork. Vorpal for Piercing weapons.

Edit: And shouldn't all Pitchforks automatically be Flaming? Or would that be seen as anti-competitive and trying to extend a monopoly into the Torch market?

2. Dire Badger

Who is writing which articles?

As Chairbadger of the Badger's Ancient Brotherhood (BAB), I would like to extend the thanks of our Dire Badger brethren for being considered in your Revisited book idea. Although we appreciate this idea, we are still banking on a misconstrued idea that badger will be appearing the the Pathfinder Epic Level book, as badger were apparently too much for standard adventurers.

Hmm, of course, it doesn't hurt to hedge one's bets. We would be happy to appear in said Misfit Monsters Revisited, if only to make the rest of the monsters appear more misfit.

Thanks again!

are you saying that Paizo is unable to do with the Flumph the same as they did with the 10 creatures in Dungeon Denizens Revisited? that you can't reinvent it in something so cool that it makes it for its undying legacy?

Henceforth, let it be known that the quickly-gaining-in-power organization known as Go Flumph Yourself (GoFY) wishes to reach an accord with the Paizonian Dictators.

GoFY's demands are thus:

1.) That BOTH Jacobs and Mona publicly acknowledge in this thread the greatness of the Flumph.

2.) That a Paizo Blog Post entitled "The Great Flumph Accord of 2009" be posted shortly - indicating to all that Paizo has come to accept that the Flumph MUST be included in the PFRPG.

3.) That the Flumph be officially updated with PFRPG stats in said blog post mentioned above.

4.) A written promise shall be included in the aforementioned blog post that the Flumph shall appear in an official Paizo product. Said product must be specifically named and an estimated date for its release must be given. Acceptable Paizo products would include, but would not be limited to, a Pathfinder Society Scenario, A volume of the Pathfinder AP, and/or a Paizo Adventure Module.

These are our demands! You will give in, or you will succumb to the collective might of GoFY!

Regarding point 4:

I suggest they be incorporated into the "Flumphs of Fury" PF Scenario, wherein the hapless heroes must decapitate the Daemon Lord of Flumphs, then toss the corpse into the Swirlypool of Scathing Rebukes before making off with the collected journals of the previous fifty-seven Pathfinders who died laughing attempting to describe the sights of said 'fiend'. Curiosly, not even the Venture Captain is overly thrilled with the prospect of sending the player characters off to recover the journals, save that he lost a bet.

Ummm, I've seen The Return of the Living Dead, so I'm certain that's definitely a very very bad idea (unless, of course, you are a mole for the Seekrit Unnerground Zombie Libberayshun Leeguh).

Are you suggesting that flumps lay eggs? I was not aware of that.

Regardless of their reproductive habits, I'm all for flumphs in Pathfinder. Maybe they can be on the cover of the Bestiary II?

I was thinking it was a reference to a Robot Chicken sketch, where a party of adventurers kill a devil/demon, chop it up, eat it, digest it, uh...expel it..., and incinerate the...uh...biological waste. Then the scene cuts to a kid holding the DMG saying "Nope. He's still not dead. The book says you have to kill him with a +2 sword!"
