Love the Fight Your In
By Chris Youngs

In this month's Dragon Editorial, Chris discusses a number of monsters or enemy archetypes he loves to fight against in D&D, and why. 

Talk about this column here.

Before posting, why not ask yourself, What Would Wrecan Say?

A great man once said "If WotC put out boxes full of free money there'd still be people complaining about how it's folded." – Boraxe

Gnolls
Dragons
Giants
Undead Pirates, preferably on a ghost ship
D&D rules were never meant to exist without the presence of a DM. RAW is a lie.
I agree with Chris 100% on the owlbears, although more for hearing the attempts of my gaming group mimicking what they think an owlbear should sound like.  While I don't think there's such a thing as a stupid monster, there are certainly those which are a lot more fun to see killed. Sometimes I'll run encounters with "lame" monsters just to roleplay their ubsurdity; of course, if these bozo monsters end up beating the hell out of the party then those bizarre owlbear "growl-hoots" tend to grow silent pretty quickly.

But ... but ... owlbears are awesome! How can anyone hate on owlbears?

If your only tool is a warhammer, every problem looks like a gnoll.
