    Default Is there a program to help make custom monsters and creatures?

    Hi,

    I am experimenting with making my first monsters and creatures, but it is pretty difficult. Is there a program out there which can make this easier for me? If not easier, at least more automated and quicker?

    Or at the very least PDF sheets I can use on my laptop (either PC or Mac. run both on this machine) for monsters? Sort of like my automatic PDF character sheets, but for monsters?


    Thank you in advance for any help!

    Vorpal Tribble's Guide to Making Monsters is the best thing I am aware of as far as guides go for making monsters. You most likely won't have much luck finding any sort of automated program.
    “Sometimes, immersed in his books, there would come to him
    the awareness of all that he did not know, of all that he had not read;
    and the serenity for which he labored was shattered as he realized the
    little time he had in life to read so much, to learn what he had to know.”

    I concur; the step-by-step approach is best for monster creation. Easiest way to start is by determining ability scores first, since they apply to all other numeric measurements. After that, choose hit dice.
