Entire Page Random?[edit]

The page is just random links. There's Arrowhawks (an outsider), Psicrowns (an item), Harpies (a monstrous humanoid)... Did someone just troll the site? What happened?--R2d2go (talk) 21:13, 26 November 2013 (MST)

Class Skills?[edit]

Where do I find what the class skills of a Magical Beast are. They should likely be added to all the "Type" pages. It would make creating Monsterous NPCs a lot easier. --Aarnott 17:43, 19 February 2008 (MST)

In the Monster Manual on page 293, under "Skills", there is a line that says:
"Treat skills listed in the base creature's description as class skills, as well as any new skills applied by the template."
--Othtim 19:01, 19 February 2008 (MST)
What's more is that if the types had class skills listed, the list would be near useless because two creatures of the same type can be so drastically different. You'd have exceptions for almost every creature of that type. —Sledged (talk) 19:20, 19 February 2008 (MST)
Thanks! That answers that. I just built a Griffon variant that can gain class levels and I wanted to know it's Magical Beast class skills. --Aarnott 21:11, 19 February 2008 (MST)


Seriously, it's like RIGHT THERE at the top of the pages: BEASATS = Beasts

Also, is BEAST Subtype not part of the official SRD in 3.5? I am not moving on to 4th edition, btw. I am against it for the most part, and I still value all my old books. I liked 3.5 and think we should have simply made more products without stopping the publication of the old ones... -- xido 01:49, 9 March 2009 (MDT)

Category:Magical Beast Type if that is what you are looking for. --Green Dragon 09:34, 9 March 2009 (MDT)
That's helpful but no... I think I saw it in Monster Manual II or later... It was a type/subtype for something OTHER THAN Magical Beast, but that was similar. It was simply BEAST, though... Not really sure, to be quite honest. I just wanted to know the difference between that and a MAGICAL BEAST. -- xido 22:16, 9 March 2009 (MDT)
Beast was one of the types in 3 ed. but was folded into magical beast in 3.5 ed. -Sarrow 22:52, 9 March 2009 (MDT)
Oh. Thank you so much, Sarrow. That helps immensely. So, my only need to deal with basic creatures - whether typical, enhanced, magical, etc. - results in using Vermin, Animals, Magical Beasts, etc. What do I do to a 3.0 creature that is labeled as a Beast? Is there a document stating this 'fold-over' or a 3.5 Errata file? I am considering how best to deal with dinosaurs, prehistoric animals (& dire-such varieties), and other more Outsider-related concepts, but I was wondering if I had perhaps overlooked a better way of working with these types of beasties.... Seriosuly, thank you. -- xido 03:40, 10 March 2009 (MDT)
Here is the link to the wizards official update from 3 ed. to 3.5 ed.
Hope that this helps in what you are looking for. As for the dinosaurs, prehistoric, and dire animal thing they are all animals in 3.5 ed. -Sarrow 13:28, 10 March 2009 (MDT)

Summoned monsters?[edit]

If I were to summon... Say a feindish monster and it's int is normaly 1 but when the template is added and it's int goes up to 3 can it then understand common?
