Greyhawk Monsters in 5E

Similar to my previous update about which gods were going to be represented in my Players Guide to Greyhawk 576, now that I'm in the home stretch of the DM's Guide, I thought it would be interesting to list out the various critters and creatures that are currently scheduled for inclusion. As always, the list is subject to change, and I'll keep this updated as I make progress by marking completed monsters with an asterisk.

To get to this list, I started with the monsters included in the Greyhawk Adventures hardcover, plus those in the Monstrous Compendium Greyhawk Appendix. Some came from adventure modules or Dragon magazine articles, a few were necessary because spells or magic items required them, a few came out of the old Minifigs Greyhawk miniatures line, and a few I included for the sake of completeness, to fill in gaps in the existing monster line-up, especially with some of the inner and outer planes.
