Don't mean to harp but would you mind providing a sequence of 6 spells that you believe would be good for the description of the creatures I proposed?
I think that even using specific monsters in the experiment is inherently “white-roomy”. Inherent in my post is using context clues to identify monsters, something that is lacking in a white room analysis.
What is the context for my wizard fighting them? This might provide context for resistances and immunities.
Where are we? If we are in say, Mt Celestia, this gives me an idea of the creatures and their likely abilities.
Was I aware that I might come across this type of monster? I might have performed research as to the likely defences of what I might face.
As a DM, do you allow knowledge checks for information about monsters? As a wizard, I’m likely trained in the appropriate knowledge skills.
How far away are they? This might impact my choices.
What is my goal? I might be able to trivially “win” the encounter by teleporting away or by evading the monsters.
Have I fought these monsters before or monsters of the same type? This might provide information about their abilities, immunities and tactics. As a level 17 spellcaster, I presume I have fought a large portion of the 11+ creatures in the monster manual.
