    Default GITP Makes a Monster

    Not sure how well this will work but let's try it anyway.

    Based on the brilliant GITP Makes a Spell by Jormengand here is the GITP makes a 5e monster.

    The rules are that we each post a line of a monster in order.

    The lines are
    Name
    size type, alignment

    Armor Class
    Hit Points
    Speed (includes burrow, climb, fly and swim speeds)

    Ability Scores

    Saving Throws (optional)
    Skills (optional)
    Damage Vulnerabilities (optional)
    Damage Resistances (optional)
    Damage Immunities (optional)
    Condition Immunities (optional)
    Senses (includes darkvision, tremorsense, truesight, and passive Perception)
    Languages (includes telepathy with a range)
    Challenge

    Traits
    Actions
    Reactions (optional)
    Legendary Actions (optional)

    Fluff (including lair actions) can be posted paragraph at a time by anyone when they make any part of the monster.

    Example: Player 2 calls the monster the Undervole. Player 2 makes it a small elemental, unaligned. Player Three gives it an armor class of 15 (natural armor). Player Four gives it 22 (4d6+8) hit points. Player Five gives it a speed of 20 ft. and a burrow speed of 30 ft. Player Six gives it Str: 12(+1) Dex: 9(-1) Con: 15(+2) Int:3(-4) Wis: 10(+0) Cha: 8(-1) and writes the fluff: The undervole is a small creature that digs its way through the elemental plane of Earth. The denizens of that plane sometimes keep them as pets but usually find them annoying especially their constant uprooting of their smaller buildings and structures. Undervoles usually live in colonies with a dominant male and female overseeing the rest. Finding an undervole colony can be an valuable undertaking for any adventurer as their pelts are incredibly valuable and hunting across the elemental plane of Earth has driven them almost to extinction.
    Player 7 gives it Damage Resistances: bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing caused by nonmagical weapons. Player 8 gives it tremorsense 60 ft and passive Perception 10. Player 9 makes it have no languages. Player 9 gives it a challenge of 1/4. Player 10 gives it the traits Siege Monster: The undervole deals double damage to objects and structures. and Tunneler: the undervole can burrow through solid rock at half its burrow speed and leaves a 3-foot-diameter tunnel in its wake. Player 11 gives it the action Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d6 + 1) slashing damage.

    So we get
    Undervole
    Small elemental, unaligned

    Armor Class 15 (natural armor)
    Hit Points 22 (4d6 +8)
    Speed 20 ft., burrow 30 ft.
    Str 12 (+1) Dex 9 (-1) Con 15 (+2) Int 3 (-4) Wis 10 (+0) Cha 8 (-1)

    Damage Resistances bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing from nonmagical attacks
    Senses tremorsense 60 ft., passive Perception 10
    Languages -
    Challenge 1/4 (50 XP)

    Seige Monster The undervole deals double damage to objects and structures.
    Tunneler The undervole can burrow through solid rock at half its burrow speed and leaves a 3-foot-diameter tunnel in its wake.

    Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft, one target. Hit: 4 (1d6+1) slashing damage.

    The undervole is a small creature that digs its way through the elemental plane of Earth. The denizens of that plane sometimes keep them as pets but usually find them annoying especially their constant uprooting of their smaller buildings and structures. Undervoles usually live in colonies with a dominant male and female overseeing the rest. Finding an undervole colony can be an valuable undertaking for any adventurer as their pelts are incredibly valuable and hunting across the elemental plane of Earth has driven them almost to extinction.

    So yeah, hopefully this works

    I'll start with a monster name: the dreaded...

    Baldaghaur

    Speed 5 ft., swim 40 ft.

    The Baldaghaur are demons that populate the seas of Yeenoghu's layer, the Death Dells, piloting large wooden boats across the ocean. They frequent the waters around a sandy isle near the shores of the barren land, on which lies their master, a whale-like demon lord that formerly controlled the Death Dells known as Bechard, Lord of Tempests. A once mighty archfiend, he was bested by Yeenoghu and left to rot on the island, too weakened to do much of anything to try and regain his former layer. It is because of this reason that the Baldaghaur despise the lord of gnolls and all who would follow him, and they are known to lead assaults on any of his war bands that come near the coast, which has gained them Yeenoghu's ire.

    (I went ahead and did both immunities and resistances since otherwise it's going to take forever to get through the "these are the demon features" part of the statblock)

    The Baldaghaur originated from breeding between demons and aquatic lycanthropes in times past. While this has given them the power of both mighty demons and the aquatic monsters the lycanthropes could assume the form of, it has given them a vulnerability to silver, a trait all lycanthropes, and by extension Baldaghaur, have.

    (I changed the wording of the damage resistances slightly, the original made perfect sense but my OCD made me change it to how it's worded in the monster manual)
