The Aboleth are a vile deity. Nobody is quite sure what they're working towards - destroying the world, or conquering the world, or perhaps just making everyone else miserable. Fortunately, for all their power, they rarely choose to manifest energies beyond what an "individual" aboleth can hold. A weak tool breaks and is replaced. Still, break too many of their "tools", and they will retaliate.
Were-spiders, or close enough. Just use the rules for lycanthropes.
I like arrowhawks.
The weakest type of harvester demon, Barghests are a relatively new creation - just within the past thousand years or so.
Just one of those things that exists. Their deity was slain by Bahamut, but has since risen as undead - a state that pleases nobody, except maybe Atrus.
It is commonly believed that blink dogs have celestial origins, albeit much diluted.
Are plains creatures, not forest creatures as the MM claims.
A demonic weapon deployed to terrible effect during the cataclysm that ended the third age. Quite rare in modern times, however.
But one of many possible variations on the wizard created creature theme.
3.0 haste? No. Chokers do not exist. Some types of demon might be superficially similar, however.
A fairly ordinary celestial, if a bit on the more powerful side of such things.
Demons & Devils:
Pretty much all are going to be re-written. Types vary by which demon lord they follow. Some commonalities exist, however. For example, most demon lords make some type of disposable foot soldier, some type of temptation based harvester (succubus type demon), a few varieties of elite soldiers and commanders, and at least one type of massive demonic siege engine type critter.
I like Destrachan. I'm not sure why. Like most aberrations in this setting, they're a corrupted form of some long lost base creature. The mere existance of the Titans does that sort of thing.
One of Atrus' earlier creations, since copied by a few other vile deities and even some mortal necromancers.
Once just a (comparatively) minor underdark hunter, reports of these creatures working in groups and equipped with magical gear have become worryingly common.
Possible demonic origins, though nobody is really sure. Fortunately rare.
A Dragon Turtle named Irl'yukther'akar is one of the world's leading experts on the events of the third age. While he wasn't paying much attention at the time, he was alive back then - which is more than most can claim. His remarkable longevity is due to an extended period of time spent petrified.
Doesn't exist. Silly ant-people.
Giants are rare, and tend to be confined to odd little corners of the world. For the most part, they ignore and are ignored by everyone else.
