Was this the same bestiary on the dq-rules list that contained the dinosaurs? If so, been using those in my current adventure and they seem to work rather well.

Yup. I got permission to put them up on the Wiki. Mandos 07:00, 5 Feb 2008 (NZDT)

We can each put our favourite customer critters on the Wiki if we want (given permission, if borrowed). However, I'm still keen on a core of "common beasts" in the bestiary proper (or inner bestiary, or whatever). I'm particularly unkeen on creatures that aren't actually being used in our campaign going into the bestiary. I'm probably being overly conservative here, but I would like to wait until a creature is used in several different games / by different GMs before it goes into teh bestiary, which is our shared list of creatures, as each GM will create unusual creatures for one-off scenarios, environments or situations, and these will just clutter and confuse, if in the main bestiary.

I suspect over conservatism. I doubt anyone has ever used an Eel in a game, Badgers do not seem heavily in use and I cannot recall a rabbit ever used either so should we remove them from the shared bestiary. I think we put these on here and if a GM uses them they can shift them across into the categories that are appropriate. It certainly doesn't take anything away from the game to put them here in their own category. The current shared Bestiary is pretty naff. Mandos 19:50, 5 Feb 2008 (NZDT)
