So we could separate monsters into casters and brutes. Casters maybe into controllers and damage dealers ... Could we shape more monster categories? Which monsters would best represent mentioned categories?

Well, I am most familiar with 3.5 ed, but i guess any could provide this division. That is if anyone joins this debate :smallbiggrin:

The question remains, why it would be worthwhile to spend some thoughts on this.

Well... there are as many monster types as system mechanics will allow for.

So... yeah. I don't see what you're trying to talk about if you don't have a particular system in mind. :smallconfused:

AFAIK this is pretty much what 4e D&D has already done, I haven't really played it much so I can't say what effect this has in actual gameplay
