I'm going to list them here now...they aren't in a particular order other then alphabetical. Though there are a few select favorites that I'll be putting in the next post after this one. Now, I limited myself to just the first Monster Manual. Not that there aren't any monsters that I love from the other books, I just have had the first one the longest and, damn it, most of the best are in it. Also, I left out a lot of the really low CR monsters (such as goblins or kobolds) not because I don't use them, but just because you are kind of forced to use them at low levels. And I do love me some goblins and kobolds...it just doesn't fit with the theme I was going for.
So here we go, my favorite monsters from Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 Edition!
Anyway, where to begin? Not only one of the most powerful monsters in the book, but it's also one of the coolest. I like to save them for a nice end of campaign big boss. They have extremely powerful stats and some really bad-ass weapons to use against your party. All that and they can summon up all kinds of other demons, or even another Balor to aid it in combat. I really do enjoy these guys.
Ah, the Succubus. I mostly enjoy using them in non-combat ways. My favorite method is to have them shapechange into looking like an innocent maiden who is captured in the dungeon. After the party agrees to help her, she begins to seduce and cajole her way into the party and picking people off one by one. If caught, she can just run away and either just leave it at that or try again another time. Always classy, always fun.

I have more, but I'm going to split it into another entry tomorrow. So come back tomorrow and you'll see the rest of my list of monsters that I'll use until my players lynch me.
