|I want my strength bonus!|
Here is a table I got out of the Monster Manual II. It gives 19 to 25 strengths and a comparable monster.
19 Hill Giant
20 Stone Giant
21 Frost Giant
22 Fire Giant
23 Cloud Giant
24 Storm Giant
Again, none of these strength bonuses are included into the damage. Now I can hear some readers out there saying they don't include any attribute bonuses into the stats. True and not true. Some of the armor classes are lower because of creature being quick, some critters can cast spells because they have a higher intelligence and so on. Is it quantified? No. Would I want it to be? No. I'm just saying this because I've been thinking about it. Although I wouldn't go around figuring out dexterities for creatures, I have done a lose configuration of strengths. Why? Because I'm on vacation this week. If you want to make any more sense of it beyond that then you are wasting your time. I'm doing this before I go out and by Skyrim.
Since my campaign is mainly populated by gobliniods, humanoids and the occasion horrific abomination here is my half ass list. Is this set in stone? No. Why am I asking myself all these questions and answering them? I don't know.
16 Hobgoblins & Gnolls & Troglodytes
18/00 Minotaurs & Ogres & Owlbears
19 Trolls & Umber Hulks
