What is a MONSTER file?
A MONSTER file contains information about a monster created with D&D 5e Statblock Generator, a web program used to generate stats (statblocks) for monsters used in Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) play. It stores information in plain text in a JSON-like attribute-value format. MONSTER files include all the attributes for the monster, such as the name, size, type, speed, armor, strength, and abilities.
You will most likely only encounter MONSTER files if you enjoy playing D&D and use D&D 5e Statblock Generator to create and import monster information. The files are meant to be opened in D&D 5e Statblock Generator.
To upload and view a MONSTER file with D&D 5e Statblock Generator, click Load Statblock, and choose the MONSTER file you want to open. To create a MONSTER file with D&D 5e Statblock Generator, click Save Statblock, which will immediately begin the download of the MONSTER file to your computer.
Since MONSTER files are saved in plain text format, you can also open them with a text editor by changing the .monster file extension to .txt. However, the information will not be displayed the same way as if you uploaded and opened the file with D&D 5e Statblock Generator.
