A very clear example- thanks a lot Wulf !! I can see now, how my attempt to change the meaning of masteries was wrong.

<Personally I want

I definitely agree!

I would really like to see that(your´s) Minotaur, would you like to post it ?!!

<If you mean the idea of the low numbers(in AR), it looks like it was

<so it should suit you just fine!

I see....

So how about, trying to make up some tables, with help of the group, for modifying creatures and designing your own?!

In "AR", I found these animal- attackratings, the value in [brackets], is my suggestion :

10-awkward(eagle´s claws)[10]
12-slow(elephant bodyslam)[12]
2W-highly aggressive(lion)[5W2]
5W-fast predator(tiger)[10W2]

fast snake[17W2]

The same with strength.

elephant18W(4m high,weighting 6t)[10W4]
10m giant[10W5]
15m giant15W2[10W6]

and some animalsenses:

horse´s hearing12[5W2]

elephant´s hearing15[10W2]
cattle/hare´s scent18[5W3]
track by scent dog2W[15W3]

bat´s sonar2W[15W3]
eagle´s eyes15W[18W3]

last one: speed:


Looking forward to your suggestions!!
