(I couldn't help but notice how fast you can get a response if you just post in the right place so here goes nothing :-)
So, in The Show Must Go On (Extinction Curse 1) there is this monster which should have variant abilities that is called Mechanical Carny. Here's the stat block:
So, in the chapter where it's met, this monster has listed "Other Mechanical Carnies" which let you think that it is supposed to have customizable abilities which is always a cool thing.
Only problem? There must be a typo out there because either they forgot to list and rule the original abilities said variants were supposed to replace or they decided in the end that this monster didn't deserve such a layer of complexity and the line listing the abilities is a typo.
I generally find the quality of monster stats to be excellent so finding these things are completely understandable and I just want to know if there will ever be advice on how to use the "Other" carny abilities now that there's nothing to replace.
