This is an attempt at making a "Flavorful" Monster. I was going for a Evil Cultist Enforcer type of vibe. The Sinner's Strike power is my way of giving this that vibe.

This one is an early attempt at making an extremely dangerous Solo. Obviously, based loosely on the Avenger PC Class, this is also an attempt at making a Monster that mimics a PC Class. Like the Class it is based on, this monster is very dangerous to a single target but I wanted to make it at least slightly dangerous to other targets as well, partcularly since it is a Solo.

This is another "Gundam Golem" of mine. Based off of a Long Range Combat "Gundam", this Golem is an Artillery type monster. I gave this one a pair of Rechargable "Cannons", One that does a Crap-ton of damage, the other that sets targets on fire and a way that it can use "Both Barrels" at once.

This Water Elemental, was an early experiment with Threatening Reach. I wanted it to be dangerous to get near it but hard to take down with common attacks. Also, this monster was made long before the Next playtest was even announced, so I had made "Disadvantage" before them too.

So, Fire Elemental. This was an experiment to see how problematic Immunity could be. I agree that Most creatures shouldn't have Immunities. Most, not All though. Immunity is something that should be rare and Dangerous. I wanted to do that with this monster.

Another "Air" Elemental. The Huge Elementals I made are all Elites. This one is a Brute of a different type. This Monster was a challenge to create simply due to the fact that other creatures needed to be able to be "Inside" it and have a good reason to risk doing so due to the danger inside it. The only other problem I have had with this monster is how to represent it on the Tabletop! The best idea I came up with was to use a three by three Dungeon Tile as its "Miniature". That way, you can place PCs Minis on the tile when they are inside it.

Welcome to the First  Two For Tuesday! This time we have a Combonation of a Minion and a normal Monster that Summons that Minion. These are two of my Air Elementals, the Small and Medium sized ones. Both Fly and hover.  They can only attack creatures directly below them, by raining acid on them. And that is their trick, they rain acid.
