    I was using the spell and it seems to summon a 18 level creature!
    Isn't that over powered?

    Yeah, I got a lvl 18 Fiendish Minotaur <sigh> Can't remember who made this spell but I think it's part of my whole 'pad out the Domain spells' thing so I'll fix it.

    Yes. That's what I got. It suppose to be 6 HD or less.

    Because Endarire is citing the SRD, just like you are. ShiningTed said it's something that needs to be fixed in TOEE...

    ok fine. I really don't follow. The spell seems very OP to me.

    ShiningTed basically said it's not supposed to be, and will be fixed.

    Ok, the problem is the minotaur is down as a 6hd monster, and sure enough it has 6d8 as its HD, but it also has 18 levels of Barbarian <sigh>. I'm loath to mess with it either way as I don't know where else it appears or what else it is for... but something has to be done. I also suspect it is a default monster (one that occurs far more frequently) due to it being the only monster not having a listed type (in the spell), so something definitely has to be done.

    Working on it.

    EDIT: Ok, just changing it to an 18hd monster seems to do the trick, only 4hd elementals and such show up now. Here's the fix, unzip this to your data/scr folder, overwriting existing file. Let me know how it goes.

    Well, the 18 levels of Barbarian would explain why the one in the Temple hits just about every time... I try to drop it in the first round on that basis. If it's not ringing any bells for you, I can message you the details to avoid spoilers on the public board...

    Please do, but this guy is indeed the Hickory Branch one and not the fella on lvl 1 of the Temple. I'll have to fiddle his death script just to make sure... I take it he is only found in his cave under Hickory Branch? (It's been a while since I played that bit).

    I was thinking the Temple one... I honestly don't remember the one in Hickory Branch... by that point I'm pretty much dropping anything that looks dangerous in the first round.
