The harpy that was supposed to be in the next room presented another challenge. It was not a simple matter of finding harpy in the MM and rolling with it. This would call for more serious modification because the Harpy I wanted (alluring song) was a level 6 controller (ack!). I needed to tone her down a bit. To do this, I was looking at building a whole new monster…kinda.
What makes this especially intriguing is that Heather isn't some beardy grognard who's been playing the game since dinosaurs walked the earth. She's fairly new, and is doing a lot of this stuff for the first time. So not only do we get a fairly in-depth view of how 4e performs behind the screen, we're also seeing how newbie friendly the rules are.
