Malleus Monstrorum - Corrections Thread

Not sure if it's an error or just a change, but a Gnoph-Keh (pg.73 in the new book) used to be able to perform one horn-gore and up to four claw attacks (see pg.44 of the old Malleus), but it now says five claws or one horn-gore.

Maybe it should count like this: four claw attacks, one body bash, adding up to five attacks per round.

The problem is that, almost all monsters are able to perform body bash, thus all monsters should have one more move (bash) per round, which obviously is not what the rule wants.

On pg.43, in the G'harne box, the first sentence ends with, "...and their god Shudde-M’ell,." A comma has snuck in there before the full stop.

In the same box, there is a line that reads, "...lead down into the city, which while entombed is still partially navigable." While I'm not 100% up on my punctuation rules, I believe there should be commas on each side of "while entombed", so that it reads, "...lead down into the city, which, while entombed, is still partially navigable."

Further down, a line reads, "...and are devoted the god that lives below them." This needs a "to" before "the god".

More of a question than an error per se, but are the Spawn of Abhoth (pg.32) meant to have 100% attack chance? It seems unusual for a creature that is meant to flop and flounder about. The only other monster in Volume 1 that has 100% is the Black Dogs (pg.172).

Thanks.

Yes, Spawn of Abhoth was an oversight (using the original stats) - this now changes to Fighting 60%.

Also, Gnoph-Keh, whose attacks should now be: 4 (claws, bash) or 1 (horn gore).

I was just comparing the old and new Unspeakable Possessors/Adherents of the Unspeakable Oath, and noticed two big differences that may have been overlooked (or may have been intentional). The first is that the creature drains hit-points when it feeds, which it then absorbs into its own STR and SIZ. I feel this should now be x5, because dividing an average of 5 points among the two stats is pretty trivial otherwise. This leads into a similar issue, which is the damage the creature takes once the sun rises. It was previously 1D20 from STR and SIZ, which meant it could potentially die in a day or two if it failed to feed, whereas it's now 2D10, which is a similar roll, though because the stats are x5, it means it could survive an average of 9 days (with a minimum of 5). Again, this makes its need to feed quite trivial (in my opinion), if it can survive over a week without even needing to. If these are intentional changes, then I apologise for wasting your time, but I thought I should still bring them to your attention in the chance that they weren't.

Volume 1 again:  On Page 86, in the Dance of Death power, a range is given in yard/meters rather than yards/meters.

And on page 87, the opening description of the K'n-yanians has this sentence:  "Unlike humans, their ears had long lobes, and the tops of were flat rather than curved."

VOLUME 1:

Page 93:  The Martense Kin appearance sections says, "Unwholesome descendants a once great family."


VOLUME 2:

Page 124:  Five lines up from the bottom right, there's the word "identify," which looks like it should be "identity."

Page 128:  In M'Geluloc's physical stat block, its attacks per round entry is incomplete.

Page 129:  Under Mh'ithrha's cult, there's "with each believing to the superior of the other."
Also, under Blessings (for hyper sight), there's "grants the ability to see all flour dimensions."

Page 145:  The deadly touch description has:  "may cause injuring by touching the flesh"
The possession description has:  "most willing accept this"

Page 147:  The first sentence of the Bloated Woman description has "black fan, which combined with magic created the illusion" - everything else in the paragraph is in the present tense.

Page 149:  The Green Man profile repeats the Bloated Woman's version of what happens when it hits 0 hit points (although everything else seems to be right).

Page 167:  The first sentence on the page starts with "Most encounters are likely through contact with a lone "practitioner or group Human, ghoul, or otherwise)"
