Hello DMs!!!

I am a DM for many groups and found myself having to remake a lot of monsters, usually due to level but also because of roles. I also always make my own BBEGs for my big final battles. After a while using the formulas for a while I thought to myself "why not make an excel file that calculates all these things for me". I have now been improving the my file on-and-off for over a year now and would love to share it with you.

It's a basic .xls file that calculates a ton of stuff, allows you to input your own custom values and even has some important tips on monster-making.
Cosmetically it could be better, and will make it look more "official" in my 2.0 version.... whenever that will be xD

This file is good for:
· Creating monsters ahead of time, such as BBEGs
· Giving you the correct numbers for making up monsters on-the-go. Type in level and role and it gives you all the numbers you need to wing-it like a pro!

My file takes in account:
· Level
· Roles
· Secondary Roles
· Whether the monster is insubstantial or not
· Ability scores (automated and manual generator)
· Specifics of an attack (melee, ranged, multitarget, recharge, encounter etc.)

And based on those things it calculates:
· Hit points
· Defenses
· Attacks vs. AC and NADs
· All the damage values you'll ever need (avarage)
· Passive Perception, Passive Insight, Stealth etc.

Other:
· Has a simple drop-down menus for Primary and Secondary Roles and for selectin Primary, Secondary and Tertiary ability scores for your monsters.
· Easy-to copy format so that you can use the numbers from the excel file and add your BBGEs attacks in a word file.
· Includes comments and guides for monster making.

I just upgraded it and verified that it's numbers are up to date and 100% Wizards official.


AND HERE IT IS:

It is kalled "Skrímslaskapari" which is icelandic for "monstermaker"

Enjoy!

If you make any improvements on the file please share them back to me.

Look at my Playable Illithid, my Monster Generating excel file , my Lifestealer in progresss (Heroic tier almost complete!) , our Improved Orc, our Improving Kenku and our Improving Duergar
Also, take a look at my friend's Improved Minotaur, Gadren's amazing Arcane Archer and of course the Avatar Project

I've heard community.wizards.com is a good place to upload files.
Mediafire.com is a nice hosting site. From what I've seen it has no waiting times, nor deletes your files after a period.
I would be interested in this file, very interested.

I believe 4shared.com lets you upload files as a free user (for small files - like a document). You could try that one.

Just in case I failed to mention; I am playing D&D 3.5e.

I did have a word file which was basically a glossory with all my data and the guidelines for creating monster from the dungeonmaster's guide, but I seem to have lost it.

Enjoy!

If you make any improvements on the file please share them back to me.

I'm having a hard time opening your file, which version of Excel did you use to make it? I am trying to open with excel 2000.
Seems to me that you are eleven years behind. Want me to make a 2k version for ya?

NEW AND IMPROVED
(how can it be new AND improved?)

Just uploaded a new version!
I cleaned it up a bit, fixed the damage values and even added a few comments and guides for monster making!
I added a new sample monster, made in 20 minutes and named after myself xD
