Elaborations and notes from original Table:

A Goblin-Man is a half-breed typically of a huam and a goblin/orc/hobgoblin which otherwise lacks any significant stats most of the time (half-orc stats could be used occasionally). they are generally considered untrustworthy and outsiders.

Black-Halflings are mysterious wanderers and scoundrels that don't fit in with the typical calm and pleasant shire villages of halflings.

Dungeon Donkeys are ordinary donkeys used to dungeon environs.

Albino Cave-Bronts are dwarf-sized albino brotosaurs. Typally 4 HD with no significant attacks and a movement rate just a little quicker then a man when not heavily loaded.

Grats- are creepy rodents that look like a bat without functioning wings. Typically 2 HD and a bite attack for 1-3 if pressed into a fight.

Cave SLoths- large lumbering sloths, they move slowly but are hard to spok and tough havign 5 HD and a natural AC of 4.

Pack Snails can be found here:

A Lava Lamp is magical vessel holding about a half gallon of glowing lava. I glows in a 20' radius and is warm enough to keep a person conformable in a tiny tent in any but an arctic environment. If hurled at a target it will break and function as a typical burning oil attack.
