Shadow, I've noticed 2 things about monster levels that I'm curious about:
1. Monsters of the same archetype are usually spread out over a fairly small range of levels. Type levels of, say, 6,8,9,11,17 is a common spread. Was there a reason for such a small spread vs. spreading them out more fully over the game e.g. 6, 15, 28, 35, 52?
2. Some monsters, such as totems, have a minlevel of 12 and a maxlevel of 30, but they appear on much higher levels and have corresponding HP. How does that work?
