Mike “The Lazy DM” Shea has some pointers. This is from an article he posted back in 2011.

Here is my attempt to create a D&D 4e custom monster that would be suitable for playing in a “Chronicles of Prydain” setting.

The Cauldron Born:

Cauldron Born

I set it at level 10, but it has immunity to all damage (as far as I can tell), excepting Radiant damage. It has “Resist 5000 Radiant Damage”, however, because in the course of the story, it turns out that only one thing can kill the cauldron born.

The “Acquisitions, Inc.” podcasts and videos are the closest anyone will come to having a watchable D&D game, most likely because the game is merely a backdrop for the participants to sit around and tell jokes.

The 5e Binwin seems to be a “one-trick dog”, unlike the previous 4e version of Binwin, who had several options when participating in a battle.

Rothfuss’ character just seemed more fun to play–even considering that Binwin took out two dragons during the fight.

There was also a lot of rolling for “DEX saves”, which relied on an ability (Dexterity) that only Rothfuss’ character seemed to have put a substantion number of points into.

Just an observation I had.
