Question answered this episode:

1. Favorite monster type (like aberration or undead or monstrous humanoids) other than Dragons as a player? As a DM?

2. Small races, like Gnomes, are unable to use longbows and heavy crossbows. This is a distinct disadvantage. Do their racial features balance out this disadvantage? Would it unbalance the game to allow them to use those weapons?

3. How do you create your own monsters, while keeping them balanced and fun?
