    Thanks for the compliment! I think the best way to categorize these monsters would be as follows (I don’t know if you plan on separate categories for Constructs and Outsiders; if not, I suppose the Scarecrow and the Shadow Demon could be lumped under the Animates):

    Animates
    Pĕnanggalan

    Beasts
    Achaerai, Giant Strider, Gorbel

    Humanoids
    Firenewt, Githyanki, Kuo-Toa, Myconid

    Outsiders
    Shadow Demon

    Constructs
    Scarecrow

    I love doing these old school monsters. If anyone out there has any requests for a particular favorite 1st/2nd edition creature, let me know, and I’ll see if I can’t cobble something together.

    P.S.: I should probably re-do the Githyanki; his bottom half is way too short.
