The wizard in my game has had an accident and is trapped inside his orb. for the time being, he has the stats of a Brain in a Jar from the Open Grave book. I mainly focus on story and roleplaying, so balance isn`t really that big of a deal to me, but do I need to alter anything if I want to keep it balanced?
In a previous game i ran that I never got to finish, one of the players was behind all the goings on and was supposed to team up with the monsters in the final climax. How would I balance it so there was a 50/50 chance who would win?
Can I take a monster straight out of the mm and let a player run it straight out of the book, ifthe player doesn`t want to pick and choose powers and all that goes in to characyer building and keep track ow all the powers and feat? Can I with non or only minor and simple alterations keep it balanced somehow?
Basicaly all I`m asking is what a monster is worth compared to a player in terms of game mechanics. Is a standard, elite or solo monster the same as a player character of the same level or some levels bellow or above?
