    My cheap and easy (cheesy) 4E to 3.5/Pathfinder monster conversion

    When running Pathfinder RPG, I sometimes got a little lazy and didn't feel like stacking on class levels or such to a monster to get it in the right toughness ballpark. Or perhaps I had an in-game spur of the moment idea and needed a quick monster ASAP.

    I found that 4E has a lot more flexibility in its monsters, so I did the following to convert them for Pathfinder use.

    1. AC stays as is.

    2. To get your Fort/Ref/Will saves, shave off 10 from the Fort/Ref/Will defenses.

    3.  HP... I either kept them at full, or perhaps went 3/4 of maximum.

    It seemed to work well at the table, and even when I had some monsters do 4E-style powers, nobody seemed to complain. I never went too overboard with it.

    How about you guys, any 4E conversions that you've done like this?
