Is the displacer beast OGL? if so is it in any of the monster manuals?

thanks for the quick reply


My new personal favorite replacement is Kamadan from Bestiary 3 (here is prd link)


thanks for the link definitely getting the 3rd bestiary.


Displacer Beast might not be, but Coeurls is really the proper name for tentacle cats. They were created for Voyage of the Space Beagle.


Yeah, Displacer Beast is owned by D&D (whoever holds the title), very sad for the rest of us :(

And unlike the WotC IP Displacer Beast, the Coeurl has seen print in a Paizo product, just not in an OGL form, sadly. The Coeurl was converted, with permission of the rights-holders to 3.5 rules by Paizo back in Pathfinder #22, The End of Eternity. Part of the license agreemenat was, though, that that conversion was not OGC, making it one of only two monsters to ever appear in a post-WotC contracts Paizo product that is not under the OGL.

(The other being Penny Arcade's Deep Crow.)


Kzinti has nothing to do with Star Trek...


Actually, they do. They showed up in one animated TOS episode... Written by Larry Niven, no less.


Indeed, I was just being willfully obtuse about science fiction/RPG cross-overs; the Kziti were statted up for (I think) the FASA star trek rpg in an old issue of dragon.
