    3.5e module creature errors

    Hello

    I am not sure if I am at the correct place, sorry if I write the following in the wrong thread We play D&D 3.5 and I have also bought the Complete SRD. The first monsters I were using were werewolves and fire giants and both had some errors in their sheets and I wanted to tell you about it (I already made my own module fixing these stats).

    Fire Giants: In both, the Basic and Complete SRD: The critical range of the greatsword is wrong, it has to be 19-20/x2, not only 20/x2
    In Complete SRD: The type Giant is missing, not very useful when a dwarf is in the group (+4 AC against giants applied as an effect)

    Werewolf: Basic SRD: The type is also missing here (Humanoid and shapechanger)
    Complete SRD: There is sometimes only the information about humanoids, so the Shapechanger information is missing
    Both: In the attack entry of the hybrid form of the werewolf lord is only an information about the attack bonus of the bastardsword, the damage is missing

    I wish you all a nice day

    Best wishes,

    Kelrugem

    EDIT: Thanks for moving my post to the correct place

    Would there be any interest in 3.5e modules? I am not sure how many people are still playing it (I found mainly Pathfinder modules and there are often some slightly mini differences) but I can offer to upload my 3.5 modules (monster corrections, spell macros/effects extended (using the Remove extension), automized (prestige) classes (i.e. their abilities added automatically) and so on) But I am at the very beginning, so there would be not much at the moment, I guess, but I would update it over the time. The advantage of being at the very beginning would be that I could directly keep an eye on whether someting is allowed to share or not (due to the license issue with 3.5e)

    EDIT: Here are the modules since someone asked for it (at the moment very small, but I will update them)

    I'd be interested in them being uploaded, I am not sure if it is allowed though.

    As long as the material uploaded is covered by the OGL, and the appropriate OGL is included in the module, then it's fine to upload it.

    The thing to note with 3.5E material is that a lot of the WotC products were not released under the OGL - so you need to check each product to see how it was released. Or, if you're unsure, only release what it is in 3.5E/d20 SRD: http://www.d20srd.org/index.htm

    I would only upload my changes on the free SRD data but nothing from the licensed materials (like complete adventurer, beholders, mind flayers, Faerϋn materials and so on because that would clearly not be allowed by licenses) and also nothing from the complete SRD (this here https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store....php?id=DGA044) since it is sold here As far as I understood everything else is allowed but I also wait first for a probable answer if I am wrong (EDIT: Okay, there was already an answer incoming while writing this Thanks )

    At the moment my modules are very small, so not really worth it. But I would update it here from time to time if I find new little mistakes or if I make better spell macros and so on

    I've now added the modules in the second post Please tell me if there are mistakes etc. But they are very very small at the moment, I will update them every time when I add something in my private campaign (we just started to go to FG so there might be some updates soon)
