    Large and small portraits are stored locally, but the master monster database isn't, and it's not always obvious which image goes with each monster.

    Here are the small portraits for every creature in the game (and apparently also a bunch that aren't). There are also large portraits, but not every creature has one and the small ones are probably more suitable for a giant list anyway (45x45 vs 162x207).

    But what's the ordering of the cards??

    Whatever the game says it is. Most are at least grouped into sets of similar cards:

    Others however, are seemingly random:

    Got it, thanks for the reply, figured it was worth asking.

    Thanks, I think I might be able to work with that!

    Other than not repeating an image for additionally numbered groups, here is an image directory that corresponds to the current monster list in the Scenario Editor.

    That will prove very useful to me, when selecting the characters, Thanks!

    Would be awesome if the wiki monsters could get updated somehow :)

    And yeah I should probably remove the credits from the editor ... that was sloppy of me :p

    I've scheduled monsters and advs update for the wiki roughly a month from expansion release, ditto for AotA. This is in keeping with wiki policy plus I have to redo pages with heavy queries (monster reference sheet). Is there a burning reason (eg: contests/events) that necessitates an earlier update ?

    Not at all, I wasn't aware of the schedule. Thanks as always for your amazing work Phaselock!

    Is it possible to make a mauve manticore scenario were you decide what cards your charactes have?

    Unfortunately no, we are generally stuck with pre-made decks. If your scenario requires certain cards to work properly then you'll have to search for characters with those cards.

    Or if you think you have a very good scenario idea/have lots of positive feedback then PM Flax and he might edit a deck to have the specific cards (and maybe even create a new card if you have to).

    You can always ask, but I haven't said yes to anyone yet, so... don't get your hopes up! :)

    How about giving us access to the league and CoC decks?

    Or create a thing alongside the custom scenario creator which lets us select what cards are in a deck and what the health/costume of a character is and save it to our hard drive and then be able to import that(/those) character(s) instead of selecting it(/them).

    It would be simpler to let us use saved SP parties. That would also provide an incentive to buy more figures.

    No, my suggestion included the creation of new monsters - because characters we can use the preset MP AI characters. If we mix and match, we are sure to find the approx. correct character that we need.
    And because we cant create monsters characters, we cant create monsters for custom scenarios if we follow your method.
    (Sorry that you misinterpreted my poorly written idea)

    My suggestion was a compromise that that allows designers to have some control over the decks, but wouldn't require a lot of work creating a whole new interface for making monster decks (there's currently over 700 different cards in the game). Instead, we can just use the already existing interface for selecting saved parties, and the only implementation issue would be changing the .scn format to include the saved party info.
