Every fantasy world needs some original monsters.
The Brotherhood of Existentialists has a system of 7 threat levels to classify the monsters:

F - Monsters that are either venomous or can harm humanoids only in large groups. Examples are all kinds of arachnoids or rats.

E - Monsters that can kill normal civilians easily. Examples are wolves, bears or sharks.

D - Monsters that are a threat for a trained and armed soldier.

C - Monsters that are a threat for a small group of soldiers.

B - Monsters that are a threat for a large group of soldiers.

A - Monsters that are a threat for an entire city.

S - Monsters that are a threat for civilization.


Basically, every creature that doesn't belong to the playable races belongs in here. Although this thread has a lower priority a new monster needs just a small description.

A one-on-one fight between an unarmed man and a wolf would probably result in a tie, the wolf would bite the man, the man would grab the wolf and eventually strangle it to death, then he dies of blood loss and/or infection.
Of course lone wolves are rare, so 99% of the time a man would be utterly screwed.
Unless he was armed, then he could probably take 1 or 2 of them down with him.

A - Monsters that are a threat for an entire city.
A-380 sized dragon by my imagination, wouldn't it be cool if players could spot them flying overhead then have to race around looking for cover? Although I suppose if the dragon was of sufficient size it probably wouldn't bother with small groups of humans, unless they had pack horses with them or something.
