This tool is for DMs who are tired of spending an hour generating a monster or NPC only to see their players kill it in a few brief rounds of combat. Using this monster generator, a DM can create a 20th level Stone Giant fighter in a minute or two or 3rd level Drider cleric in just a few seconds. Allowing you, the GM, to either experiment to find the right monster to really challenge your party or simply use the time you save creating monsters to write more adventures.

The monster and NPC generators follows all the rules of D&D 3.5 for creating monsters with classes and NPCs. So the monsters / NPC you create with this tool are just as good as the ones you would create by hand. The results can be printed out directly from the web page or use the plain text option to cut & paste the monster into your adventure.

The tool is easy to use. Simply select the monster and optionally select its classes, levels and its skill focus. The focus controls how the monster's / NPCs skill points are used, ensuring that your monster / NPC has the right skills to terrorise your party. Special attacks and class abilities are allocated automatically but the monster generator / NPC generator lets the GM select the feats. Monsters / NPCs also start with their default weapons and attacks but these can be changed, as can the monster's ability scores and size.

Once you are happy with your changes press the RECALCLATE button to see how the changes effect the monster.

The monster generator and NPC Generator are free to use and supplied "as is". If you have any questions or problems, please write to us: CONTACT (at) DinglesGames (dot) com.

    Sweet, thanks for responding so quickly!

  2. spectreshane says:

    Hi Paul,

    Just wondering, where I’d find Epic Dragons (ie Prism & Force Dragons) from the Epic Level Handbook? It’s on the OGL and can be used.



  3. admin says:

    Hi Shane,
    I will get around to adding them soon, I didn’t know they existed until know, I’ve not got the Epic Handbook. I’m playing Pathfinder RPG at the moment.

  4. spectreshane says:

    No hurry, Hope you had a great christmas.


  5. spectreshane says:

    Hi Paul,

    Epic Dragon

    Hope this helps.

    Have a great New Year

  6. admin says:

    Hi Shane,
    Happy New Year to you as well

  7. jaredsw says:

    Can you add Lycanthropes (werewolves, etc)? Thanks!!

  8. admin says:

    Hi jaredsw,
    All the Lycanthropes are in the Templates window.
    You can add the Lycanthrope template to any race.

  9. jaredsw says:

    Hey, thanks! I was looking in the monster category, sorry about that.

  10. Necron_99 says:

    I noticed there are no Giant Spiders. Any plans to add them or maybe they are listed under some other name?

  11. Necron_99 says:

    Found it, ” monsterous spider” :)

  12. jaredsw says:

    How about adding a Raven and Slaads?

  13. jaredsw says:

    And the Guardinal template? Thanks in advance!

  14. admin says:

    Hi jaredsw I can only add monsters that appear in the OGL. As a rule of a thumb if it appears on I can add it.

  15. jaredsw says:

    So not everything from the monster manual is ogl? I do see Raven and Avoral/Leonal (those are two examples in the monster manual of the template Guardinal) in the list on the srd list. Bummer about the slaads though. Its not perchance something that is ogl but they accidentally over-looked it since they are in MM1?

  16. admin says:

    Hi jaredsw, I’ve added the Raven there is already a familiar Raven. I’ll add Avoral/Leonal soon. I seem to have completely missed them when adding in monsters.
    Slaads are definitely non OGL I’m afraid.

  17. jezzakstyles says:

    Hi Paul,

    For non-OGL 3.5 monsters, we can add them via the Create Monster option ourselves - it takes about 1 hour on complex monsters and 10-15 minutes on more basic ones - if you’re a lifetime member, then that monster is saved under your log-on details (and I’ve got 100+ saved myself).

    Yep, it takes some time, but once you’ve added it yourself, its there and there’s no hassles about copyright and other licensing legalities from the mob at WOTC.

    Paul, with regards to the Create Monster tool, you might want to re-vamp the tutorials so it helps with more complex cases (I did it the old way by trial & error).


  18. jaredsw says:

    Jezza, thanks! I got my Death Slaad entered :)

  19. jaredsw says:

    When creating NPCs using the “elite” array, shouldn’t the first roll for the hit dice be the maximum roll? According to the DMG elite characters should get the max on the first hit die and the non-elite or average characters should be a rolled die. Pg 110 DMG. Is there a way to include this on the D&D NPC creator?

  20. admin says:

    Hi jaredsw, I’m not at home at the moment so can’t check my books (in hotel on a contract). It could be a difference between Characters and NPCs, I can’t find anything in the D20SRD. I’ll check it out when I get back.

  21. admin says:

    Hi jaredsw, I’m back home now and found the max first HD rule. I’ve now amended the generator.

  22. Deanthelis says:

    When customizing the spells prepared of a Wizard with this generator, the only spells I could pick from were from the Pathfinder list. Acid Pit is not a D&D 3.5 spell; yet it appears here.

  23. admin says:

    Hi Deanthelis, I’m in the process of breaking down the spell lists. Quite a lot of the pathfinder spells should now be removed. I’m working on the rest.

  24. Rayquaza1090 says:

    Do you plan on adding additional prestige classes, like Thrallherd?

  25. admin says:

    Hi Rayquaza1090, I can add anything which is on the D20SRD, this includes the psionic prestige classes (just checked) so I will look into adding them.

  26. Rayquaza1090 says:

    Thanks, Paul.

  27. captainbill47 says:

    Will you be adding a creation tool for 5.0? :)

  28. admin says:

    Hi captainbill47
    There is no OGL agreement for 5.0 at the moment and I haven’t had time to go through the rules. If it is released with an Open Gaming License I will certainly look into creating a generator
