Re: Does fantasy monster overlap bother you?
I wanted to post here my response from RPG.net. I wanted to post my response here since this is my view concerning monster bestiaries and the state of monster creation in the industry.

If the game is part of a compatible gaming system series, I don't want to see already existing monsters. If it is a new system, sure put them in.

For me, it's just a product for new users, not necessarily former product owning users.
After all, with N number of attributes, a large library of (S) skills, (A)abilities, species (T) talents/features, and (P)powers, (L) levels, developers should be able to come up with some new creatures. I'm not a statistician but I am sure the number of significantly different creatures would be high (thousands) even if removing a 5% to 10% difference between each creature.

That makes a lot of sense. Thank you for explaining.
