    Hmm, that's a very good point.

    On the other hand, it doesn't do damage. It just slows and dazes- which, granted, is pretty darn good.

    I'll have to playtest this and see how rough they are compared to other minions. After all, they have to choose between a chance to impede their foe and a chance to do damage.

    Would it be better if I lowered their attack damage to 3 + 1 ongoing?

    EDIT: This monster is revised to MM3 standards (and into a minion) later in the thread here.


    This was an interesting one. I considered having it be a minion, because I just couldn't justify a parrot having 25-30 hp. Instead I did exception-based design, and just halved the normal hp total it should have while simultaneously increasing some of its defenses and giving it a good defensive ability. I'd love some feedback on this one, if anybody has any to give. It's not a viable threat on its own, but with other monsters to follow up against disabled pcs, it seems about right to me.

    Ease of creation

    I agree with earlier post that 4e's ease of monster creation may be one of my favorite things about new system.

    All those players who memorize the monster manual(s) are in for a rude awakening... hehe.

    Note: You can even have different stats/abilities for same creatures (multiple Goblin Bowmen, etc.) to really keep it interresting. Just go easy on yourself as DM and do not mix them in single encounter, real hard to keep track of...

    THANKS for this thread, real good stuff here.
