I am creating a portfolio for each encounter in PFS #29: Voice In The Void. The first encounter (Tier 1-2), calls for a young caryatid column. By default, this creature is medium size, but the young version is small.

How can I update the entry in the Tactical Console so the size is small?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

EDIT: I thought I could copy the base creature in the Editor and then 'Save As' a small version of the creature...wrong. There is a warning message that is displayed when I bring in the caryatid base creature: "Warning! This thing is non-copyable. Any changes you make to it will be ignored, and it cannot be saved or duplicated.". <Sigh>

Once you've selected the stock monster, go to the Classes tab. Click on the "Click to add class levels or hit dice" text, and then scroll down past the classes to the templates. You'll find the Young template there, and once you've added it, the size change should be handled for you, along with the rest of the effects of the Young template.

For future reference, on the adjust tab, add either a temporary or permanent adjustment, and choose "Size Category". Once you've added it, set the value to -1, and you'll reduce the size of the creature by 1 category.

Also, in the editor, even though you can't copy a monster from a package directly, by having the original open at the same time as a new race, you can switch back and forth copying each setting.

I owe you an apology. My faith in HL was wavering when I first ran into this perceived roadblock. I was wrong and I apologize. Thank you for the enlightenment.
