New update added some conversions I hadn't gotten to around to including. They are:

Hippopotamus, Marine Eel, Black Dragon Juvenile, Sahuagin High Priestess, Sahuagin Lieutenant, Sahuagin Royal Guard, Young Sahuagin.

As I create new conversions for other projects, they will be added to this guide on a semi-regular basis.

So what was in the update?

I left the Aberrant Ground and Gibbering special abilities out of the stat block for the Greater Gibbering Mouther. The update corrected that mistake.

The most recent update increases the total number of monsters to 100! The product description has been updated to list them all.

Little disappointed that the Mobat and Dracolisk aren't in your Lost Caverns CMT.
Not looking forward to paying another $2.95 just to include them in our S4 campaign.
I'm sure the other monsters are interesting but right now, I don't need their stats.

Thanks Nod. I have so many things going that I sometimes forget something obvious (facepalm). The Dracolisk and Mobat are added into the S4 CMT as they should be. Cheers!

I've gotten so much use out of your products here on DMsGuild that the extra $2.95 is probably due anyway, heh.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
