    OK, here is the revised giant wasp, now with howler wasp and howler wasp queen (3.5 MM4).

    I'll probably do a wasp swarm eventually (I think there might be some kind of fiendish wasp swarm in the FF?), but I have a long day tomorrow.

    Here's the revised and expanded giant praying mantis. It comes with some campaign-specific flavor text (for the lvl 12 solo guy).

    PRAYING MANTIS

    The praying mantis is a insect that is harmless to humanoid life as long as it remains small enough. However, as is so often the case with seeminly-innocuous creatures, once it is enlarged to great size, a praying mantis becomes a terrible threat.

    On the Feywild, praying mantises have a much greater variety than in the natural world, growing to truly incredible size or demonstrating strange fey powers; some even speak.

    Giant Praying Mantis Level 3 Soldier
    Large natural beast (insect) XP 150
    HP 47; Bloodied 23 Initiative +3
    AC 18; Fortitude 15; Reflex 17; Will 15 Perception +3
    Speed 6, climb 4

    STANDARD ACTIONS

    (mbasic) Claw * At Will
    Attack: Melee 2 (one creature); +8 vs. AC.
    Hit: 1d6+4 damage.

    Mantis Strike * At Will
    Effect: The praying mantis uses claw twice against the same target. If both attacks hit, the target is dazed until the end of its next turn.

    TRIGGERED ACTIONS

    (melee) Blinding Speed * Encounter
    Trigger: An enemy triggers an opportunity attack from the praying mantis.
    Attack (Opportunity Action): Melee 1 (the triggering creature); +8 vs. AC.
    Hit: The praying mantis shifts up to 2 squares, then pulls the target to a space adjacent to it.

    Vision Mantis Level 7 Controller
    Medium fey beast (insect) XP 300
    A vision mantis is a preying mantis the size of a human from the Feywild whose claws inflict a poison that causes hallucinations and delirium. Although it rarely uses the ability, a vision mantis is capable of speech.

    Hit: 1d8+3 damage plus 10 psychic damage and the vision mantis slides the target up to 2 squares and the target is dazed (save ends). Each time the target fails a save against this effect, the vision mantis may slide it up to 2 squares.

    Spitting Praying Mantis Level 7 Artillery
    Medium fey beast (insect) XP 300
    The spitting praying mantis is a dangerous hunter of the Feywild that uses its saliva to hunt prey. Even those that get close to it must contend with its deadly claw, although it is less proficient in melee than many other breeds of giant praying mantis.
    HP 61; Bloodied 30 Initiative +7

    Spicewoods Elder Mantis Level 12 Solo Soldier
    Huge natural beast (insect) XP 3,500
    In the depths of the Spicewoods of Pesh are areas where the air is thick and humid and conditions are right for the growth of monstrously large creatures. Alongside the behemoths and giants of the forest, giant insects sometimes live and grow far past their normal size. The Spicewoods elder mantis is an example of such a monster- it has survived for over a century and become something of a legend to the people of Pesh. But it is real enough, and should adventurers ever slay it and bring out proof of their deed, they would gain a great deal of fame.
    HP 488; Bloodied 244 Initiative +12
    AC 28; Fortitude 24; Reflex 26; Will 24 Perception +10
    Speed 8, climb 5
    Immune immobilize, slow
    Action Points 2; Saving Throws +5

    TRAITS
    Elder Beast
    At the start of its turn, the mantis makes a saving throw against one condition that a save can end. If it is bloodied, it instead makes a saving throw against each condition that a save can end.

    STANDARD ACTIONS

    (mbasic) Claw * At Will
    Requirement: The mantis may not have more than two creatures grabbed.
    Attack: Melee 3 (one creature); +17 vs. AC.
    Hit: 2d12+7 damage, and if the mantis has less than two creatures grabbed, it may grab the target (escape DC 20).

    Flurry of Strikes * At Will
    Effect: The Spicewoods elder mantis uses claw three times.

    MINOR ACTIONS

    (melee) Bite * At Will
    Attack: Melee 2 (one grabbed creature); +17 vs. AC.
    Hit: 3d6+10 damage.
    Effect: The mantis may sustain the grab.

    TRIGGERED ACTIONS

    Frenzy * At Will
    Requirement: The mantis must be bloodied.
    Trigger: The mantis takes damage from an attack.
    Effect (Free Action): The mantis makes a saving throw, then uses claw.

    Here is the revised version of the assassin vine.

    ASSASSIN VINE

    Source:
    3e Monster Manual.

    An assassin vine is a long vine that grows both above and beneath the ground. It requires blood to survive, and is able to animate in an attempt to seize prey. The subterranean variety is darker in color than the aboveground.

    Often Parasitic: An assassin vine often wraps itself around another tree, eventually crushing it much like ivy does. Others choose pillars, statues, or even walls as their host, but an assassin vine grows better and remains healthier without blood for a longer period if it can sap the life of another plant.

    Heady Wine: The assassin vine produces purple berries that are widely believed to be poisonous. In any event, they are bitter and unnutritious. Nonetheless, a heady wine is made from these berries by some particularly brave tribes of goblins and gnomes.

    Guardian Creature: Clever humanoids, hags and groups of druids occasionally plant assassin vines as guardians, since the vines prefer to remain at rest unless actively following retreating prey. By ensuring that the vines get enough to eat, such a group can maintain a guardian over an area.

    Assassin Vine --- Level 3 Lurker
    Large natural animate (blind, plant) --- XP 150
    HP 38; Bloodied 19 Initiative +8
    AC 16; Fortitude 17; Reflex 16; Will 15 Perception +3
    Speed 4 Tremorsense 10
    Vulnerable 5 fire

    TRAITS
    Lashing Foliage * Aura 3

    Creatures other than plants must spend 1 extra square of movement to enter any space within the aura that the assassin vine has line of effect to. (This does not count as difficult terrain and stacks with the penalty for entering difficult terrain, but not with other lashing foliage auras.)

    STANDARD ACTIONS

    (mbasic) Vine Lash * At Will

    Attack: Melee 3 (one creature); +8 vs. AC.
    Hit: 2d6+4 damage.

    (melee) Grasping Vine * At Will
    Requirement: The assassin vine may not have more than three creatures grabbed.
    Attack: Melee 3 (one or two creatures); +6 vs. Reflex.
    Hit: The target is grabbed (escape DC 15) and the assassin vine pulls the target 1 square.
    Sustain Minor: The assassin vine sustains all of its grabs.

    (melee) Strangle * At Will
    Attack: Melee 2 (one creature grabbed by the assassin vine); +6 vs. Fortitude.
    Hit: 2d10+5 damage.

    (mbasic) Strangling Vine * At Will

    Attack: Melee 3 (one creature); +20 vs. AC.
    Hit: 11 damage and the assassin vine grabs the target (escape DC 15).
    Sustain Standard: The assassin vine makes the following secondary attack against the target.
    Secondary Attack: Melee 3 (one grabbed creature); +20 vs. Fortitude.
    Hit: 15 damage, and the assassin vine sustains the grab.

    Source:
    1e Fiend Folio.

    Here's the revised bunyip.

    BUNYIP

    Source:
    1e Fiend Folio.

    A bunyip is an aquatic, seal-like beast known for its loud roar. Dwelling in sluggish rivers, swamps and lakes, the bunyip tends to have a curious, playful nature, but if attacked, a bunyip responds viciously. Bunyips are carnivores, primarily eating fish and water-dwelling mammals such as beavers. However, some take to the flavor of human, halfling or other sentient flesh, and some of these learn to attack boats in order to get at the (relatively) easy prey within.

    FIRENEWT

    Source:
    2e Monstrous Compendium: Forgotten Realms.

    Firenewts, also sometimes called salamen, are distant relatives of lizardfolk. They are cruel marauders that roam hot regions. Mottled sepia on their dorsal side, firenewts have lighter undersides and white bellies. Though they have a superficial resemblance and similar capabilities to dragonfolk hey are a distinct species set apart by their primitive and bestial ways, their primitive fire worship and their inherent evil nature.

    Firenewts live in a cruel, martial society dominated by priests of evil fire powers. Dwelling primarily in arid areas such as deserts and wastelands, some firenewts lair in caves or build (or conquer) small villages. Others maintain a nomadic existence, living by raiding other folk in their vicinity for food and slaves.

    Vicious Captors: Firenewts delight in torturing other races with fire. As long as a firenewt group's food holds out, captives are usually kept alive for sport; however, once the tribe grows hungry, captives are devoured with relish. Even captive firenewts from rival tribes are eaten, and intertribal warfare tends to be all-out and genocidal.

    Fire Worshipers: Firenewts usually worship a power that represents fire or manifests its anger in flames, often a primordial or other nondeity such as Imix, Mephistopheles or the primal spirit of fire. A given tribe of firenewts usually all worship the same god; power deviants are hunted and eaten, unless they can stage a revolution and slay the priests of the tribe's current god before.

    Mounted Warriors: Firenewts keep and ride giant striders, showing a surprising degree of proficiency at mounted combat. Most tribes of firenewts keep large herds of striders, averaging about one giant strider per firenewt. In times of privation, these faithful beasts are devoured without a second thought.

    GIANT STRIDER
    Source:
    1e Fiend Folio.

    A giant strider is a type of large, stupid, aggressive flightless bird. Related to the ostrich, a giant strider shows naked skin, for it grows only tiny, prickly feathers on its body. Its eyes glow red, as if it were full of lava. Giant striders dwell in rocky, desert or volcanic regions, enjoying the heat and vapors produced in that sort of terrain.

    Firenewt Mounts: Few giant striders live independently in the wild. Instead, most are kept as domesticated herds by firenewts, who use them as mounts or, in times of privation, food. Giant striders have a reputation as balky, uncooperative mounts, but the firenewts seem to have no problem controlling, riding and fighting upon them.

    TRAITS

    Whenever the giant strider is hit by a fire attack, it gains regeneration 5 (save continues).

    Striding Mount (mount)
    While ridden by a friendly creature of its level or higher, a giant strider may shift 1 additional square each time it shifts.

    Trigger: An enemy enters a square from which it flanks the giant strider.

    GREEN VISAGE
    Source:
    Homebrewed.

    A green visage is a tall, sunflower-like plant that always grows above the grave of an intelligent humanoid. The green visage has a large melon-like bulb at the top that bears the face of whatever creature is buried beneath its roots. In addition, the green visage has many of the creature's memories and its personality bears a superficial resemblance to that of the creature upon whose remains it feeds, as well. A green visage's nature and demeanor both depend greatly upon the location and circumstances of its growth.

    Limited Mobility: Although a green visage can move about, it must return to the body upon which it grows or else it will sicken and eventually die.

    Community Elders: Some communities attempt to preserve the wisdom of their elders by planting a green visage on the grave of each elder. These green visage elders often serve their community willingly in return for meeting occasional demands for treasure, nourishment or entertainment. Some have strange preferences, demanding art, a nice house or wives.

    Wild Hermits: Some green visages grow over the body of a creature that died far from others of its kind, in the wilderness. The humanoid elements of a green visage such as this will crave company, and may even go mad from loneliness. Such a green visage is highly unpredictable and more likely to act aggressively than a green visage with a community around it.

    This one might more properly go under 2nd level, since there is a lvl 2 individual quipper minion, but since the quipper swarm pre-existed at level 3 and I did the minion as a quipper variant, I'm going to keep this entry on the 3rd level level thread. I sure am capricious and inconsistent!

    Anyhow:

    FISH
    Source:
    1e Fiend Folio (quipper); 1e Monster Manual (giant gar, giant pike); 1e Monster Manual 2 (afanc, giant caftish); 2e Monstrous Compendium vol. 2 (ascallion); homebrew (giant anglerfish, giant archer fish).

    There are many types of fish, including many dangerous types. For purposes of this entry, fish are considered distinct from sharks. Some fish are dangerous individually, others only in large schools. In some cases, giant versions of normally-harmless fish become dangerous carnivores themselves. Other giant versions become much more aggressive than their mundane versions.

    Quipper --- Level 2 Minion Brute
    Tiny natural beast (aquatic, fish) --- XP 31
    A quipper is a pale-bodied piranha, usually found in cold or underground waters. They are easily aroused by the smell of blood. While they often school, individual quippers do sometimes swim alone when hunting.
    HP 1; a missed attack never damages a minion Initiative +5
    AC 14; Fortitude 13; Reflex 15; Will 14 Perception +2
    Speed swim 8

    TRAITS
    Aquatic

    Fish can breathe water and get a +2 bonus to attacks against nonaquatic creatures in aquatic combat.

    Blood Crazy
    If one or more bloodied creatures are within 8 squares of the quipper on its turn, it must attack the closest one.

    STANDARD ACTIONS
    (mbasic) Bite * At Will

    Attack: Melee 1 (one creature); +7 vs. AC.
    Hit: 6 damage (8 if the target is bloodied).

    TRAITS

    Any enemy that starts its turn in the aura takes 5 damage (7 if bloodied).

    Aquatic
    Fish can breathe water and get a +2 bonus to attacks against nonaquatic creatures in aquatic combat.

    Blood Crazy
    If one or more bloodied creatures are within 8 squares of the quipper swarm on its turn, it must attack the closest one. The swarm gets +1 to attack rolls and +4 to damage against bloodied creatures.

    Swarm
    The swarm can occupy the same space as another creature, and an enemy can enter its space, which is difficult terrain. The swarm cannot be pulled, pushed or slid by melee or ranged attacks. It can squeeze through any opening that is large enough for at least one of the creatures it comprises.

It has line of sight and effect to no creature but the giant catfish, and no creature has line of sight or effect to it. The target takes ongoing 10 acid damage. A swallowed creature can make weapon attacks only with light weapons. It can escape by making an Acrobatics or Athletics check, DC 20, as a move action or by inflicting 30 points of damage on the catfish with a single attack. If the catfish dies, the creature can escape with a move action.

    Afanc --- Level 23 Solo Brute
    Gargantuan natural beast (aquatic, beast) --- XP 25,500
    An afanc is a dreaded fish of truly mind-boggling size. In combat, an afanc takes up three linked gargantuan (4x4) spaces, sharing one pool of hit points and actions. The three sections represent the afanc's head, trunk and tail, and must remain adjacent to one another and in sequence. The afanc still moves as one creature.
    HP 1,068; Bloodied 534 Initiative +13
    AC 35; Fortitude 36; Reflex 34; Will 35 Perception +16
    Speed 9
    Saving Throws +5; Action Points 2

    TRAITS
    Aquatic

    Fish can breathe water and get a +2 bonus to attacks against nonaquatic creatures in aquatic combat.

    Immense
    Because of the afanc's immense size, certain attack forms must target certain parts of its body. See head, tail and trunk.

    Head
    Only attacks that hit an afanc's head section can daze, dominate or stun it. Once it is bloodied, it can no longer be dazed, dominated or stunned. (Neither a miss nor an effect line can apply any of these conditions to it.)

    Tail
    Only attacks that hit an afanc's tail section can slow, immobilize or restrain it, or prevent it from shifting. Once an afanc is bloodied, it automatically loses the slowed or immobilized condition at the end of its turn. (Neither a miss nor an effect line can apply any of these conditions to it.)

    Trunk
    Only attacks that hit the afanc's trunk section can weaken or inflict ongoing damage to it. Once it is bloodied, an afanc gains resist 10 against ongoing damage and automatically loses the weakened condition at the end of its turn. (Neither a miss nor an effect line can apply any of these conditions to it.)

    STANDARD ACTIONS
    (mbasic) Enormous Bite * At Will

    Attack: Melee 1 (one creature adjacent to the afanc's head section); +28 vs. AC.
    Hit: 5d8+9 damage.

    (melee) Tail Smash * At Will
    Attack: Melee 3 (one creature within 3 squares of the afanc's tail section); +26 vs. Fortitude.
    Hit: 4d10+9 damage, and the target is stunned until the end of the afanc's next turn.

    Bite and Tail * At Will
    Effect: The afanc uses enormous bite and tail smash.

    (close) Whirlpool * Recharges when first bloodied
    Effect: The afanc spends a churn point and is immobilized until the start of its next turn.
    Attack: Close burst 10 (each creature in burst); +24 vs. Fortitude.
    Hit: 5d12+7 damage, the afanc pulls the target 4 squares and the target is slowed (save ends).
    Miss: The afanc pulls the target 2 squares.
    Sustain Standard: The afanc spends a churn point and repeats the attack. It is immobilized until the start of its next turn.

    MOVE ACTIONS
    (melee) Churn * At Will

    Effect: The afanc shifts 3 squares. It can enter other creatures' space during this shift. It then makes the following attack.
    Attack: Melee 1 (each creature whose space the afanc entered); +24 vs. Reflex.
    Hit: 4d8+5 damage.
    Effect: The afanc slides each target 5 squares to a space outside of the afanc's space.

    Churn the Waters * At Will
    Effect: The afanc moves its speed and gains a churn point that lasts until the end of the encounter or until used. (See whirlpool.)

    Here is the revised violet fungus, along with other fungi types.

    FUNGUS
    Source:
    1e Monster Manual (violet fungus), 3e Monster Manual (phantom fungus), online Creature Catalogue (fungus hulk)

    There are an abundance of dangerous fungi to be found in the caverns and dungeons of the world, with a great range of forms and nature. Whle many types of fungus can be harvested for food, poison or drugs, the ones here are as likely to eat a dwarf or goblin as the other way around.

    Other noteworthy types of fungal monsters or hazards that appear elsewhere include myconids (Monster Manual 2, Underdark), phycomids (P2: Demon Queen's Enclave), and some traps, hazards and terrain features.

    Violet Fungus --- Level 3 Lurker
    Medium natural animate (blind, plant) --- XP 150
    HP 42; Bloodied 21 Initiative +2
    AC 17; Fortitude 17; Reflex 11; Will 15 Perception +1
    Speed 3 Tremorsense 6 (blind)
    Immune poison

    TRAITS
    Camouflage

    The violet fungus resembles an inoffensive (albeit large) cave mushroom and always appears mixed in with other, similar fungi. It requires a Dungeoneering check, DC 16, or a Perception check, DC 21, to spot a violet fungus before it attacks.

    STANDARD ACTIONS
    (mbasic) Rotting Slam (necrotic) * At Will

    Attack: Melee 2 (one creature); +8 vs. AC.
    Hit: 1d8+5 damage. If the target cannot see the violet fungus, the target also takes ongoing 5 necrotic damage (save ends).

    Blend In * At Will
    Effect: The violet fungus shifts up to 2 squares and regains its camouflage.

    (close) Violet Burst (poison) * Encounter
    Attack: Close burst 3 (each creature in the burst); +4 vs. Fortitude.
    Hit: The target is blinded and slowed (save ends both).
    Miss: The target is blinded until the beginning of its next turn.
