I went through the "Call of Cthulhu" bestiary last night and calculated approximate dice values for the Sanity risk each creature poses.  I tried to alter the dice depending on each spread, but hopefully this will approximate well.  The application is unclear at this time: presumably these would be monster dice used for Sanity conflicts (in "Hounds" terminology) or an outline for supernatural traits (in "Afraid") should the existing amounts be insufficient for Mythos use.

One thing I failed to do was list an example Mythos creature with each die type. "Save" means the original amount of Sanity lost on a successful save, "Fail" of course, means the amount lost on a failed save, "Max" was just the maximum loss potential, and "Hounds" is the die conversion for a "Dogs"-based system.
