I was also thinking a manticore chimera stat block without the multi head benefit and without the ram's head charge. Either way I don't always like work to fit it in when we already have a huge range of monsters that are in the books but desperately need minis for.

 

That would be a good higher CR option!  I’d still put the wolfy stuff in there - keen senses too.

 

That would be a cool thing to work into a Tyranny of Dragons campaign.

Now that you mention it, didn't we see photos of catfolk pirates from Reapercon?  The one in the Core Set ren't pirates.

 

 

I dont remember because catfolk was something I didnt really pay attention to.  I remember undead pirates.

Love that catoblepas. I need a whole herd.

Have we discussed what the plural of "catoblepas" is?  Or what a group of them would be called?

Apparently, according to statements made during Reaper Live there was commentary about a Bigsby's Middle Finger, but higher ups shot it down. Or something to that effect. 

I would very much like to see a figure in the spell effects called Bigby's Furled Broadsheet. It would be the major weakness of the wolf dragon.

Half-Dragon Dire Wolf.  Easy peasy.

Or Half-Fiend Dire Wolf.

"Oh, it's just wolves," the PCs say...

 

Seriously, that's a really good use for the Dragon Wolf.  Thanks for mentioning it.

Ah so they showed the one with the scimitar by accident.  (not the one with the sabre)

EDIT: I also just noticed some of stone bases and some have a wood texture.  Could that mean there is more than just whats here..

 The one in the hat is already "Hector Purrbosa" in my mind.

 

Edit: It may be female though.Hectoria Purrbosa, perhaps?

No, not at all.  I like constructive criticism; its the best way to improve.  I've been a tech writer for 30 years; I can handle critique. I figure if 50% of the people like something I did I've done a good job. 

 

It's when they decide to attack the person instead of stating what they don't like that wears on one. I think the comment that really bit this time was the one where they asked if the dragon wolf and the catoblepas were make on take your kid to work day.  Ouch.

 

 

@TaleSpinner, If you've never seen this quote, I thought it appropriate:

They also mentioned that there are more "encounter" bundles planned. A mixture of terrain and creatures to inspire encounters in TTRPGs

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
