I've only included the monsters that are interesting and/or non-trivial. Some of them are inside PDFs, so you'll have to go through the PDFs to find them.
Aside from that, this is a complete index of all the monsters I've ever posted. It's from all 3 of my settings (Centerra, Eldritch Americana, and Synthexia). Mostly Centerra, though. Nearly all of them have stats, but not all.
I'll update this list as I add more beasties.
