I think a case could be made for dragons as well. As iconic as those monsters are, it would be good to put them together.

I agree in general, but for one thing... moving the Death Dragon would mean the Derej Pit Creatures no longer stay together on one page. Pragmatism beats purity. One or two pieces of art would have to be added to make up for that change, which then might break the Shield Guardian page later in the book (but then, we could add more art to make up for THAT...)

The problem is that art has to appear before I can use it.

The obvious solution then is to MAKE MORE DRAGONS! YAY!!!!!!

I'm not too sure if this is even an error, but on page 56 (58 digitally):

"Once a spider locates prey..." I think should be either "Once the spider locates prey..." or "Once a/the phase spider locates prey..." instead. I don't know, just a nitpick that I found while casually browsing the PDF.

Yeah, that part could be better. IF I do another version (and I probably will), I'll rewrite that part.
