Icewind Dale | Encounters | Monsters

To challenge the adventurers, seventy monster types will face them including 30-40 sporting new models and a few already seen in Baldur's Gate. The number of animation frames per monster have been doubled to increase their smoothness and most monsters have at least two types of attack animations. Each monster also now has a sleep animation in addition to their death animation. Truly huge creatures, made possibly by a 400% increase in the maximum sprite size, will now face the party. Monsters will live in different ways: some will wander around aimlessly, while others will have patrols and posts. Monsters will now react to calls of help from other creatures and upon sighting dead comrades. Although there will be no dragons in Icewind Dale, the following creatures will be.
