    EDIT: As there is an official version of the rust monster (and talk about a classic that really should have been in the MM!), I won't update my version.

    ---
    Initiative +6; Senses Perception +4
    HP 62; Bloodied 31

If it has three wear points, the item is destroyed. If the weapon, shield or armor is magic, it can receive one additional wear point without harm per tier.

    [Melee] Ram (standard; at will): +10 vs. AC; 1d6+2 damage.

    Rusting Body (immediate reaction; when struck by a metal weapon): The rust monster makes an immediate attack on the target: +9 vs. Fortitude; Hit: put a wear point on the target’s weapon; if it has two wear points, reduce attack and damage rolls made with it by 1.

    No, I love the algoid too much to pass it up. In fact, my very first dnd game, I got to fight an algoid!

    BLOODBLOATER OOZE

    Bloodbloaters are small, flat, disk-shaped oozes about 8” in diameter, with a bulge at the center. They are a translucent milky white with flecks of red at the center. While an individual bloodbloater ooze is an annoyance, they tend to congregate in swarms of about 650 creatures, posing a true threat to swimmers. Additionally, there are isolated incidents of bloodbloaters that have grown to more dangerous size on an individual basis.

    Actually, there's a brain coral entry in Monstrous Compendium Annual 4. IIRC it had psionic powers or something.

    I tweaked the way wear points interact with magic items in the rust monster entry. Previously, they got a saving throw against each wear point, but I decided that I liked that better as a non-magical potential weapon enhancement- "enduring" weapons.

    Ever since I came up with them, I have really liked using wear points to show abstract wear and tear on pcs' items.

    My new Monster

    Here's a new monster, taken straight from Harry Potter and the sorcerer stone.

    Cerberean Hound Level 5 Solo Brute
    Large immortal beast XP 1,000
    Initiative +3 Senses Perception +8; darkvision
    HP 264; Bloodied 132
    AC 17; Fortitude 18; Reflex 17; Will 17
    Saving Throws +5
    Speed 6
    Action Points 2

    M Bite (standard; at-will)
    Reach 1; +8 vs AC; 1d10 + 4

    M Bite and Hurl (standard; recharge 4 5 6)
    +8 vs AC; 1d10 + 4 and the target slides 2 squares and is knocked prone

    M Multi-head Attack (standard; at-will)
    The Cerberean Hound makes 3 bite attacks.

    Many-Headed
    Each time the Cerberean Hound becomes dazed or stunned, it loses one attack on its next turn instead. Multiple such effects stack.

    Alignment: Unaligned Languages: Abyssal
    Str 16 (+5) Dex 12 (+3) Wis 12 (+3)
    Con 18 (+6) Int 12 (+3) Cha 12 (+3)

    Cereberean Hound Lore:
    DC 15: This three headed beast strikes terror in the heart of any adventurer that encounters it. The Cerberean Hound is the offspring of Cerberus the dog with three heads that guards the gates to Hades.

    Tactics:
    The Cerberean hound can attack three targets that are adjacent to it, or it can attack a single target with all three heads dealing a devastating amount of damage. This beast has the capability of using its teeth to grab the target victim and hurl him or her through the air like a ragdoll, leaving them vulnerable for the next attack.
