    furious Improving monsters

    yea that size increase chart is confusing me

    my monster is going from med. to gargantuan which means:

    +24 str, +9 nat armor, -4 Dex/AC/attack, + 12 con. correct?

    Nevermind, read the thing wrong myself The numbers are right.

    Don't forget to increase weapon damage dice, too.

    dont worry about it i changed my mind. i was originaly going to increase a humanoid skeleton from med to gargatuan, give it a tail and an extra pair of arms ( just cause i think its cool)

    but i've decided to go with gargantuan snake skeleton instead ( cause i think its cooler..... though as i type this i may switch back to the skeleton with 4 arms....)

    Then it's not snake-like. Snake's don't have arms, remember?

    If I recall, the skeleton is a template, so it shouldn't be improved by increasing size and adding hit dice but rather by adding the template to a larger creature. Start with a hill giant if you want a giant-sized skeleton, start with a Girallon if you want an extra pair of arms, etc.
