Tome Show: Monster Manual 2
by Mike Shea on 16 June 2009
Last week I had the great pleasure of joining Phil from ChattyDM and Quinn from At Will as guests on Jeff Greiner's The Tome Show discussing the Monster Manual 2. I'll be posting a longer article discussing tips and tricks for using the Monster Manual 2 at your game table next week. For now, here are a couple of tips from the show:
- Re-skin your chromatic dragons with new metallic dragon stats from MM2.
- Up the damage of your minions to 3/4 level or, if you're really harsh, equal to level.
- As your players go up in level, throw six or eight minions instead of four for the same experience as a single beast.
- Lower the hit points of older level 11+ solo monsters to 4/5. Increase damage by one die.
Once again it was a great pleasure to join the show and I'm hoping to be on again in the future. Thanks Jeff!
