doom!

Clarification, perhaps?

Hey, folks, do me a favor, wouldja?

Turn in your Monster Manual III to the Bonedrinker entry. 11-die undead, with unholy vigor, so these guys have 11d12 + 22 hit points. They have Damage Reduction, Energy Resistances (including sonic), and move pretty fast for the walking dead.

They have four attacks. They start a grapple automatically when they hit with tentacles, have a terrific chance to grapple and pin people, and then start doing 1d6 Con damage a round. They make spawn.

I'm trying to figure out how these critters are considered CR 6.

Going by that CR, I threw five of them against my 8th-9th level party this weekend. It was very close to a TPK.

Monk

I'm a little confused about the monk's flurry of blows attack bonuses. 

My monk is 5th level, and has a normal attack bonus of +9 (because of weapon finese, high dex, and magical weapon).

what would his flurry of blows attack bonuses be?  I know this is a 3E community but please give me the 3.5e results

thanks in advance!

(no subject)

I'm thinking about running a series of first-level mystery adventures, in the Eberron setting. Because it's cool, I'll at least be starting out in Sharn, the city of towers. Kinda steampunk-ish, with echoes of Chasm City.

I'm sitting here trying to think of plot ideas, and my mind's gone blank. Anyone have suggestions?
