What I was commenting on was that , "The village is plagued by a powerful Chemosit, a malevolent and cunning ape-bear that delights in human prey, particularly relishing the taste of human brains. The beast has come out of the jungle every night for 2 weeks, stealing into the village in search of victims..." And yet the villagers are still here?! Waiting for someone to just happen to come along and agree to save them!? Sounds like a brilliant plan. :)
And given the obvious power of the Chemosits, stealing in seems awfully timid for creatures that can rip your limbs off without breaking a sweat. Who were they afraid of exactly? Lol
They are literally 800 lbs gorillas. Two of them. They can do whatever they want. :)
As for rend vs rake? Rake and pounce are by far and away the more common combo. It isnt even close. Rend and pounce is found in only one creature I have seen in the 4 bestiarys. And it isn't anything that you would expect. All the creatures similar to the Chemosit have rake. If anything is missing in error it is the grab ability. :P
Ultimately it doesn't matter. They are your custom creatures. They are what they are. :)
I mean no offense. Just blathering while I wait for Mihai to post. :)
I would respectfully suggest that they are more than a CR 5 though. ;) lol
Corb's player is dealing with a family emergency. He asks that Corb be DMNPCed until further notice.
With Anton (and Aedalis) leaving, we should probably do a new loot division. Seeing as how Anton, in particular, is carrying the party treasure and likely above party average for shares in personal gear.
The custom Azlanti boots should definitely be considered for return I should think. Same with the Azlanti cloak of Aedalis'.
Not that I'm dying to do the treasure list for yet another game... but if nobody else wants to volunteer and I have time in the next day or so, I'll take a look at it.
