4e Monster Compendium

Last post
Since I've already started the races compendium and classes compendium, I figured I'd save someone else the work and make a central thread for the custom monsters as well.

Monsters are first organized by tier, and then within each tier monsters are separated by role and formatted by difficulty (minion/regular/elite/solo) for ease of reference. As always, if I've missed any monsters or you create a new one, post here to let me know. If you want a program that will format everything for you, try the DM's Toolkit, courtesy of Leichenreiter and myself. Enjoy!

-------------------------

Please do not post your monsters in this thread; post them in another thread and give me a link. I want to reserve this thread solely for a compendium, and not commenting on or reworking custom monsters.

-------------------------

Monster Roles

Monsters are separated by role under each tier; those with multiple roles are listed under each role. Some monsters were not given roles by their creator, and those are listed separately in a "No Specific Role(s)" category; if you have suggestions as to what the best role would be, or if you are the creator and know what the role should be, let me know and I will move it. Monsters that can fit in any given role can also be found in that category.

Update: I've taken out any monsters with incomplete entries, and I've put up a tentative classification scheme I'll use for denoting monster roles and difficulty. If anyone has suggestions on a better scheme, by all means let me know.

Okay, I put Nephlite's stuff in.

For future reference, if you would post monsters in another thread and just give me a link, I'd appreciate it; I'd rather not clutter this thread and keep everything in the first post. Nephlite, if you wouldn't mind either moving or sblocking your monsters, that would be great.

Thank you. I've changed the links.
Update: I've put in monster difficulty, and will get to roles soon. If anyone has suggestions on a better method for denoting difficulty, please feel free to let me know.
Okay, I've finally grouped everything by role(s). There are a few monsters without roles given for them, so feel free to let me know what you think they should be.
Wealthy is every role.

Hmm...I don't know if I want to copy something more than 1 or 2 times, or that would start to clutter things up. If it can fit any role, I think I'll leave it in the No Role area for now. Thanks for that, though.
Thanks for maintaining this Eldritch_Lord.

You might want to make an All Roles category. If you did, there wouldn't even be any No Role Given templates - devourer-spawn is all roles, too!

Yep. I have that down; bold italics means it's a minion. I'll probably start color-coding them, as it's obviously a bit confusing as-is.

I changed the "No Roles Given" category to "No Specific Role(s)" and added a note that it's either ones I'm not sure about or ones that don't have only 2 or 3 roles. How's that?
The Monster Creation excerpt has been out for a while, and if the blogs are any indication, folks are going to start putting up some custom monsters before too long. Since I've already started the races compendium and classes compendium, I figured I'd save someone else the work and make a central thread for the custom monsters as well.
spoiler

Monsters are first organized by tier, and then within each tier monsters are separated by role and formatted by difficulty (minion/regular/elite/solo) for ease of reference.

Thanks to the unbelievably prolific Keithric, there are already tons (and tons and tons and tons and tons...) of monsters on this list, though there are several monsters by others as well. to Keithric; I've only included his those among his monsters with complete stat blocks, but for concepts and monster abilities you can check out his a list of his ideas here. As always, if I've missed any monsters or you create a new one, post here to let me know. Enjoy!

Monster Roles

Monsters are separated by role under each tier; those with multiple roles are listed under each role. Some monsters were not given roles by their creator, and those are listed separately in a "No Specific Role(s)" category; if you have suggestions as to what the best role would be, or if you are the creator and know what the role should be, let me know and I will move it. Monsters that can fit in any given role can also be found in that category.

Where can i find this monster creation excerpt?

Here you go.
I added 3 new version of Beholders to my monsters in the second Link.
The new version is acid. The Elite/non-elite can also use a eye ray similar to Warlock's Eyebite called Grummet (dealing psychic damage). The minion only has acid ray.
"If you can't believe in yourself, believe in me who believes in you." and "Go beyond the impossible, and kick reason to the curb" Kamina, from Gurren Lagann
Added.
Well, I made my first 4e creatures today: updates of the Xag-Ya and Xeg-Yi are in the Heroic Artillery section.
The 'Masterminds' you can switch to Controller - that was back before we found out what term they'd be using so I was using the MM4 term. Also, I'd suggest against using my really old ones since they're particularly spotty with respect to how things actually work: I assumed players would get +1 to everything each level instead of +.5, and also assumed combats would be less rounds so damage would be much higher.

At any rate, it'll probably help your endeavor here to look at one of my index threads of actual 4E monsters, like this one, which I'm pretty good about keeping up to date.

Good luck with your compendium, and to you, sir!

Tell you what--if you want to post or PM where exactly you think the line is between "too old" and "mostly accurate," I'd appreciate that.

Oy vey. I'll go through there at some point this week and update stuff.

Good luck with your compendium, and to you, sir!

Thanks, for both.
A to the top to let potential homebrewers see it!

I've also added a lot more of Keithric's stuff. Everyone keep those monsters coming!
...aaand another bump. Just need to keep this on the first page until the books are out! :D

I don't believe the Monster Forums has an FL, but I've already put the request in the proper place.
yay its a sticky now!
Wouldn't the Vampire Master be a leader/controler/both???
Nice work

Can I suggest a colour code for standard/elite/solo, so it's easier to find something you want at a glance?

Also, isn't 'minion' a role now, rather than a sub-role like Leader?

He didn't put a role down when I made the link; I'll check it out again later.

and the orcs excerpt:

Notice that all the minions are just 'level 16 minion' or 'level 3 minion' etc., rather than 'level 16 brute (minion)' or 'level 3 minion (soldier)',

Good point; I never took a look at those stat blocks. I'll change that now.

Controller, yes - I'll be redoing his stats shortly and I think I'll change him to an elite.

8 months ago when I started this we didn't know Solo monsters had roles, nevermind what the roles were actually called - heck, someone had even said Solos were called Paragons (which was swiftly proven wrong by the tier setup, but eh).

Rocky ride. I'm actually planning to work on something like 10 monsters a day for the next 3 weeks so that I can have a decent playtest doc ready up for June 13-20. No idea how I'll be posting them, though, but I'll try to remember to make a list of them in Eldritch Lord's format to help keep things sane

If you want to send me links to all of the new ones, I can put them up here. I've been too busy the past couple weeks to go link-hunting, but when school ends I'll have plenty of time to keep up with all your monsters.

Shouldn't "Goblin" under "No Specific Roles" (Heroic) be under MINION, or have you not listed the Goblin Minion out there on the list?

Really like your collecting all these links in one place.

I might have missed one or two minions when I rearranged the list; Gleemax is being uncooperative right now, but I'll double check that later. Thanks for the heads-up.
Check out badger challenge.
Blogs are a bit dead at the moment, but if you look at my post here, I've added another 29 stat blocks. I'll aim for the next block to be ready for Tuesday I think.
Keith Richmond Living Forgotten Realms Epic Writing Director
I've created a Giant Toad monster. It is a level 3 solo controller.

Here is a link.

I'm still looking for feedback on it if anyone's up to the job. Thanks
