    Two of these can be found in the Ancient Maze.

    One Bear Ancient can be found at Gorgoth Pass, another at the Old Lagoon.

    There is a non-swamp non-sewer Shambler in the game files, but chances are that all of the Shamblers that can be found in vanilla Arcanum are either Swamp or Sewer Shamblers.

    You probably mean Bengle Tiger, a creature that is present in the game files. Just like with the Shambler, I don't recall ever seeing a creature named like that it the game itself, yet - just like with the Shambler - I didn't pay enough attention to be 100% sure.

    Summoned by the Hellgate spell. There is no other way to encounter one. Note that it will be actually yellow, not red.

    Not sure where did you get that graphic and level from. As far as I know, Kuljin are not present in the game files, though they were intended to appear in the game.

    Oren is by default only present in the Vormantown module (or A:WIP, which includes the Vormantown module). He is not to be found in the vanilla Arcanum module.

    These creature are present in the game files but are not placed anywhere in the game world.

    Dark Warlords (lvl 35 by default) as well as other Darks (Dark Knights, Dark Berserkers and Dark Warrior-Priests) are creatures that cannot be found in vanilla Arcanum but are in the game files, though they are functional only with the UAP. If I recall correctly, their sprites were off before Drog intervened.

    Now, you would be able to eventually encounter any of the creatures that can be found in the game files, if you'd use Virgil's Debug Menu and spawn random monsters over and over again. For the Debug Menu to work, you would need to have the UAP installed, and since it no longer allows the spell permanency trick to work, you would either have to re-enable it in the game files yourself, or play with the A:WIP, a mod which includes a version of the UAP while enabling the spell permanency trick.

    Damn, I'd been checking into some of these and was going to post a partial list but holy jesus, nice work.

    I gotta know, did you just pull all that off the top of your head?

    These kinds of posts make me believe in the value of a forum.

    Holy shit, the spawn random monster function actually has some use!

    Launched WorldEd to look up the Dark Warlord's level and check whether the Shambler and Bengle Tiger are in there or not. Other than that, yes.

    Thanks a bunch for the info, saves me a lot of time! I found all of these critter descriptions while skimming through the monsters and uniquemonsters text files.
    The Kuljin where mentioned there, but as you wrote they weren't placeable with the world editor. Since I'm pretty green when it comes to the game, I though that they were a "special" type of creature just like the Temporal Crusher on the isle of Despair which I didn't locate in the editor either.
    I read the page you linked before too, which was what made me believe that they did appear in the game at some point.
