Cobbled this up over the last couple of days using the silhouettes created by Telecanter.
Click to see full size and enjoy!
EDIT: Made some adjustments to the chart, and I added a storm giant and gelatinous cube. I was way off on the wyvern, the giants needed some tinkering and my treant was too big. Of course, sizes vary. I might do some more work on the sea critters as well.
On a side note - the print copy of NOD 12 is now up for sale at Lulu. Sorry it took so long - wanted to make sure it came out okay. 144 pages for $11.00. Map of Hell still didn't reproduce as well as I would like, but you can still grab a better looking version HERE.
That should be included with every clone system as a visual aid.ReplyDelete
Thanks to you and Telecanter. Very, very nice work!
Very good. I love size charts. I recall that at least one of the CoC books had a good one too.ReplyDelete
Wow. Very cool! Now my nitpick: the roc isn't big enough to carry off an elephant.ReplyDelete
Yeah - I noticed that after I generated the image (which also seems to have shrunk from the one that I uploaded). I'll probably do a revised version soon.ReplyDelete
Yeah! Telecanter + Matt definitely equals a dream team, in my book. (The beginnings of a dream team? A dream duo? Yeah, let's not over-analyze: you get the point.)ReplyDelete
Nice but damn, D&D dragons and giants are small!ReplyDelete
Cool chart. That's one darned big deer.ReplyDelete
I finally got to consult my AD&D Monster Manual - I'll put a revision in a bit. The dragon got bigger (I was basing it on the size categories in 3E) and so did the frost giant.ReplyDelete
That is really well done. I like how you've got the sea creatures below, the various ranks of different greys, and little touches like the pixie hovering above the rhino like an oxpecker.ReplyDelete
I hoped people would do things with the sils, but this is really more than I expected and cheered me up. Bravo!
You did 90% of the work Telecanter - I just dropped your work into an excel document and sized it. If you make any more silhouettes, I'll try to add them to the chart.ReplyDelete

Nice! Would it be too much trouble to post a link to it somewhere in an even larger size? These old eyes have a bit of difficulty reading the text (I can blow it up myself, but then it's pixelated...)ReplyDelete
I shall do exactly that. Stay tuned!ReplyDelete
Very cool, and comprehensive, much more so than my limited efforts in that regard.ReplyDelete
Lasgunpacker - You're table looks great. I'm going to use something similar in Blood and Treasure.ReplyDelete
Thanks! It was inspired by Roger's. I just tried to combine everything into one chart, and limit things to what exists in my world.ReplyDelete
this is grand!ReplyDelete
Oh. My. God.ReplyDelete
This may be the coolest thing I've seen in months...
This is really cool. Did you say that you did this in Excel?ReplyDelete
It looks phenomenal.
Yes sir - I do a surprising amount of "graphics" work in excel. Excellent for laying things out, making colors transparent, etc. and then copy pasting into Paint.ReplyDelete
A good start, but a couple tweaks needed :ReplyDelete
1) Griffons carry off horses, and Wyverns are smaller. The Griffon and Wyvern sizes should be reversed.
2) Dragons come in a wide range of sizes. The dragon you have indicates small-medium size (6-20 HD) but larger ones are much larger.
3) Too many types of bears are not needed. Instead, have three dragon sizes (small, medium, large), as per point 2) above.
4) Order the creatures from smallest to largest, rather than randomly.
5) Notable omissions include the troll, ettin, cyclops, elemental (whatever element), manticore, chimera, basilisk, etc. A few golems are also needed (bone, bronze, iron). In general, more humanoids, fewer animals (there are THREE bears here!).
