Do you think maybe the core book Triceratops is a bit high in Strength?
Seems alright to me. Str 20+ is basically "hits like a truck", which certainly seems appropriate for a triceratops, especially when you consider that Str also has to do with carrying capacity, which I'd imagine the triceratops would also be good at. Maybe not strictly 100% accurate to life that it's that much substantially stronger than, say, an elephant, but I'm inclined to concede to the common trope that dinos are nastier than their modern-day counterparts. (The nice thing about FC's NPC system is that it's easy to tweak things like that for your own personal use if you prefer a higher standard of realism than what most would find to feel appropriate.)
I think I'm going to keep Triceratops at my adjusted 20.  Like bumping T-rex up to Bite V it makes the scale feel better.

Also forgot to address this from way back:
Yeah, sure, post away.  Just maybe try to keep them grouped into categories so I have some sort of title to use for the Index.
Cool. I'll try to get a more or less complete category done before I post, so I don't keep going back and editing in new creatures.

On the "marine crocodile" confusion: Maybe change the name to "pelagosaurus", since that seems to be the particular variety of marine crocodile you have in mind with the gharial-like snout and such?
Done.

"Marine crocodile" isn't really a name that clicks with most people (I was quite the dinosaur/prehistoric fauna buff when I was a kid, and even I had never heard of those before this thread), so using a more technical name wouldn't really be any great loss in recognizability. If anything, I might consider it an improvement in recognizability, since the "marine crocodile" name is really sort of a negative recognizability, coming across as something people intuitively think they know what it means when actually it's something quite different. Compared to that, a name you just don't recognize and have to look up to know what it's talking about is an improvement, I'd say.

Most of them aren't people either.

It's the other way round - Saltwater crocs are large vicious bastards compared to the smaller freshies.
Marine crocodile: seems bit weak on the bite. I'd expect crocs of any description to have Bite III, personally.
Ever seen a picture of a gharial?  My guess is the marine crocodile is intended to have that extreme narrow snout.  Probably can't crunch hard.
Ah, I thought "marine crocodile" was another name for "saltwater crocodile". Didn't realize it was something else altogether. Carry on, then!
I'll put in a note for future readers.

The lusers I've had the unfortunate task of interacting with before.  They're nothing new.  This is for contractor and "escalated privileged" staff oversight (SysAds).

Just remember that they're not people, they're lusers.

Not sure if you guys are allowed to even answer this, but with the line of Mistborn going, any plans for a line of Reckoners?

Mwuhahahahahahahahahahahahhaha.

One of us, one of us.

But seriously, do you have ready access to scrap carpet and quick lime?

Look around you can you form some sort of rudimentary crematory?

LOL.  I could actually probably create one using magnesium? But yea, the theory is easy enough.  I knew most of it already.  The tech side.. oh man.. and people tell me how "MOA" is confusing.  It'll take that over AES any day!
