I remember having a DM that allowed the ranger to make up some details himself depending on his roll. He give the base details the amount and type, but then the ranger could choose some details as long as he rolled well enough and it was his favorite enemy.
Tracking raiding party of giants, "according to the placement and weight of these footprints this one giant is absolutely plastered". when we found them there was indeed a drunk one that was given a chance to miss and if he moved his full movement had a chance to fall over.
This probably wouldn't work on all tables, but I liked it. It added some character to the smaller throwaway minions. the best one was when he rolled a natural 20 and turned a pack of dire wolfs into a bunch of bandits wearing shoes with wolf paws on the bottom by saying the spacing was all wrong.
