So, we've all heard the horror stories of a particular book. The book whose creatures, with the CR currently assigned to them, would either be so tough that they rip right through PCs, or so weak that they die in droves. Among the most complained about books in all of 3.X edition, the Monster Manual II.
In this thread, I intend to read through and summarize every monster entry in the book, from overpowered to underpowered (and even the few in between). In addition, I intend to work with participating posters to come up with new Challenge Ratings for every creature in this book.
Currently, I expect to update every Monday and Friday. There will be three chapters, just like the book: Monsters, Templates, and Bonus OGL monsters.
So, anyone interested?
3.5 adjustments to the 3.0 stats will be marked in red.
I will be using the Vorpal Tribble's CR calculator to determine the base CR. For those who don't know it:
Chapter I: Monsters
Chapter II: Templates
Chapter III: OGL Monsters
Bonus Monsters (Not in the MMII, but terribly CRed)
