1st-Level Monster Conversions
Edit: This thread is what spawned the Monster Project.
...now that we know what's in the 4e MM, we know that there aren't a ton of 1st-level monsters. My understanding is that we get:
*Many kobolds (all? of which we see in KotS)
*A goblin or two
*Some kinda drake (pseudodragon?)
(Am I missing anything?)
Ok, so I know there are also cool level 2-3 monsters that would fit fine in a 4e encounter with level 1 pcs. But I hunger for some more variety, especially since there are a wealth of old edition monsters ripe for converting as 1st level monsters. In another thread someone mentioned xvarts. What about blood hawks? Norkers? Giant centipedes? The infamous krenshar? Kaorti? A small spider (like, halfling-sized)? The possibilities are endless!
I've already done the blood hawk and will post it below.
So tell me some more. I am going to do some 1st level monster conversions; what monsters aren't in the 4e MM that beg for conversion?
Edit: Okay, here's my list of low-level monsters to convert so far, based on feedback in this thread and my own brainstorming. Some of these I think will end up shifting up a couple of levels- prolly the ankheg, at least.
