I always felt, as with in live role-playing (D&D etc), that mobs shouldn't
all be
the same.  Like every bugbear should be equally as strong, equally as smart,
  Just like people are varied.  Even dogs can vary in how intelligent they
are.  It's

I use to be into role-playing, I made a chart where I'd role percentage to
of what ratio of there max potential they had reached (this also allowed for
younger or elderly versions of the same creature).
