Now I figure that Darl Quethos is a right evil overlord, and that all of his companions are expendable; and that he is also very smart, and Darl would expend his companions wisely. I figure that he would send his weakest guy to bargain with the titian and minimize his losses if the deal went bad. With this reasoning the minotaur is weaker than the other companions but stronger than Krekie, as she was left out to die first. I know that sinfire brothers are only 15 CR, but they are a "set", and Nalhazzarath is more of a walking ring of wishes than a real companion. Darls band of evil probably has a pecking order and I surmize it's- Darl then Malhazzar, then the Sinfires, the then Dead Minotaur, then Krekie, with the cornugon and cauchemar as more in category of familiars/mounts. What class/level do you think the minotaur is. I began thinking about this as another thread a DM had his party scry and fry Darl and crew on the ship out to the island, and the guys I play with would do the same.

Barbarian is the favored class for Minotaurs.
So, Barb 10 + Minotaur (CR 4) should work out to CR 14.
But with all the gnarly new feats in the PHB2, I would probably make him a Fighter 10 instead (or maybe bump to 11 for Greater Weapon Focus).
Good work! That's about what the minotaur was when I first concieved him...well...not like that. ;-)
Originally the minotaur was going to be faced by the PCs and the Efreet's head was going to be in the titan's grasp, but James made the sweet suggestion to do it the other way around cause Efreeti get such little lovin (and they really are sooo cool).
Anyways...the minotaur...I think his name was Shangor...he was a 15th level Barbarian.
Thanks for the info. I very much enjoyed reading Library of last Resort and I cannot wait to play it. I think that it is a well written high level adventure, that allows the Players to use their characters ablities to the fullest; too many high level adventures rely on nerfing spells and ablitites to provide challange.
