I don't think she's a Night Hag. Not sure what kind she is.

She's a green hag petal.

Flinds are sort of an offshoot species to gnolls. The cousins of gnolls. They're bigger and tougher.

Man, this is not a paladin game, what classic enemy races are you talking about. Any race created in the editor can become an enemy only at the request of the player.

Many play as drow, they have other classic enemies


Throughout the majority of D&D's history, Drow, Duergar, and (especially) Githyanki have been presented solely or primarily as evil monster races. Almost every time they appear in a book, adventure, or even D&D computer game, it's as evil monsters. Drow have been cleaned up and normalized the most, of course, mostly due to the popularity of Drizzt and how many people want to play as Drow. But even so, most Drow in most products are just antagonists.


This is pretty true, if I remember correctly Drow was a monster race in the monster manual for 3.5 & had a level adjustment of +2 to play as one (level adjustment means you would lose or skip a class level equal to lvl adjustment. This happened because, the racials were more potent than normal races). Actually a lot of the races in 5e that people been asking for are monster races in old editions.

3.5 from lowest level adjustment to highest:
Goblin (+0), Orc
Dwarf - Duergar (+1), Lizardfolk, Aasimar, Tiefling, Bugbear, Hobgoblin, Golieth, & Kenku
Yunati (+2), Triton, Gith, Centaur, Elf - Drow, & Minotaur
gnome - deep (+3)

Simic Hybrid - Don't know about this, probably close to a template that was in the monster manual, templates were added to races to make half creatures, vamps and werewolves.

Don't know about Tabaxi, Aarakocra,Tortle, Firbolg, Loxodon, & Vedalken



Simic Hybrid, Loxodon and Vedalken are from the Ravnica setting, which was ported over from Magic the Gathering for 5e. They where not part of D&D prior to that, so they have no earlier edition version.

That's a pretty great variety for just act 1 of the game!



added references from the rule books as I see alot of complaints about to much HP and no DnD monsters. All monsters I could find in the rulebooks appart from 34 and 36
MM = Monstrous Manual
VGM = Volo's Guide to Monsters (yes that volo!)

The snake is the poisonous variety. I guess the Arcane Turret is closest to the Artificer's Eldritch Cannon, which has 5 hp per artillerist level. There are many different types of construct.
