The Kreegan made a surprising entrance to mm9. 1st Nicolai mention the Kr.... in Drangheim after being teleported there some how(i like to think it was Falagar who helped him lol). Ebora was in the mountain mines in Thorgard, before disapearing until we meet her and 2 friends having a bath in the Arslegard bath house. Then we find a few Greater/lesser demons hanging around in Arslegard also.

So do I! Especially considering there is a large town populated by them. It reminded me of the swamp town in Heroes 3. I often imagine what their special abilities would be like.
They surely would be good in Swords, Tridents, Bows, Regeneration, and Body Building.

They could probably cast a low level elemental spells (because that's precisely what they teach it in their town); they could be the Yin to the Minotaur's Yang.

They could probably also be excellent in Alchemy, Disarming, Perception. They'd be resistant to Cold and Fire.
Their promotion would be given by the tribe leader on Dagger Wound Island. The title would be "Lizard Shaman", or "Lizard Warrior".
The promotion quest would probably be Regnan pirate related (kill a certain amount of pirates, loot a specific Regnan dungeon, etc)

And what the hell, let's also give them a racial set of spells, "Lizardman".
Basic: Scaly Skin: Gives a 3 X skill level bonus to Armor Class and hit points, temporarily
Expert: Ice Trident: Gives a big Cold magic damage bonus to any equipped Trident class weapon for a set of time
Master: Bow Mastery: Gives a bonus to AC and bow damage for a set of time
Grand Master: "Wrath of the Islands": Strong lightning based attack. Hits multiple targets.

Yes, I know that.
It's a shame that this spell was removed in MM7-8 (and Turn to Stone or Golden Touch) - it wasn't very useful in combat but I liked it anyway (and it is fun to cast these spells on peasants :D ).

Tough question, but I'd have to say my favorites would be the Death Knight/Doom Knight/Cuisinart from MMVI. I really like the Hunting Griffins from MMVII too.

Well, duh, but the Minotaurs were the only monsters using it, and they were freaking awesome because of it :D
What's better than walking around a corner and hearing that all out of the blue?

Mmmm, Elemental Fairy..

Thanks. Anydangways, I really like the monster design in MM 3-5. Those cheesy cartoon sprites are a whole sort of awesome.
Back from the dead? Maybe.
