No chest, Erik states that in the post sadly.

Big thumbs up for the brazier repaint though. Got me 6 already ('m a sad creature)

Very nice choice of dressing to start of with. Well done Erik, has me excited for the next 4, and if the draft horse is even half as nice as the sculpt (and the larges usually are) he'll be a winner on my table. Am I right to assume the wagon is around 2" wide? About the same as the draft horses base? Well, I mean "planned to be" since its a digital sculpt. The cart just under 1"?

Do you use the gaming paper roll for the enormous maps?

First thought on seeing the serving girl - Harrower, which you confirmed in the text. I think I'll be looking for a few of these, so common is perfect. As stated above this will be one of those where the painting with be pivotal, especially the face. Very cool addition.

Pious guard is the perfect upgrade to the guard. Will the blue in the final match the blues we see in the current guards line (and the eagle knights coincidentall; I use them as guards. A fair bit)? I think this is a great, armoured bulky warrior and can see some need by me for several. Great mini, great rarity.

Ghoul cultist, second revealed (of 4?, I hope) and it's a beauty (?). I will be getting a lot of these, so common is perfect. I just hope these ghouls tie in well with the rune lords, shackles and undead builder sets - primarily size wise I mean Assuming 4 in this set, that will leave me 6 sculpts and a whole lot of awesome for one my favourite low level baddies as well Erik. Actually I feel a little spoilt here - ghouls and bugbears as a focus, two of my most liked, and the gnolls in the previous.

I'm very keen to see what the dressing will be in this one. When are we going to see spoilers for those?

Liking how this. Set is unfolding. Especially keen to see some more larges from the set since I'm trying to figure out how commoners will feed into that. Or will they be a literal feeding since these will be the monsters (quivering cubes and all)

I'm ok with the pathfinder orcs. In fact the quality sculpts and uniformity are a welcome addition to my PPM collection. As far as colour, only the very first one was a neon green, the later ones were a lot darker. I find myself much like Berk above using my PFB minis more often and relegating my DDM versions to the cold dark of storage, with some exceptions naturally (barbed devil for instance). En masse the once look very cool and I'm glad to see a mounted version, and the rare slot works in this case. I actually hope there will be a few more, a generic warrior with a spear or machete would be nice.

Of course I don't really get the disparity in size between the average sized orcs, smaller than expected gnolls and the monstrously bulky bugbears. Mind you I love the bugbears.

Toys'R'Us have, pop into google and look it up. Battery operated, and clearly colossal. I hope they come out with a slightly smaller one.

Erik, meant to ask this earlier - is the intent with the giants staff to make it a clear transparent plastic, to look like a staff of crystalline ice?

Hobbun the chest is NOT on a base, it's a free mini. Take a look on ebay or even here on the singles (not available) but it appears to be a separate piece.

Kalindra I have bought 1-3 cases of every set to date, most through paizo, some as impulse buys around tax return time (I have no self control). So that is around 20 cases i think and I have NEVER had a duplicate brick until now. In the past I have heard of a few but they seem rare. I wouldn't worry too much, I suspect Wizkids do a bang up job and this is the rare exception rather than the rule.

Erik it's not a huge issue to me. As I said to Kalindra I sure it's a rarity. I come from the old D&D days when you HAD to buy 3 cases just for a small chance at a full set. This is a hell of a set and I may well be looking at getting a second case - of course if it happened again I may hit the unhappy button. It was an odd experience because I opened one case, then a second that was different, then the third and it was only around half way through when i got the second Doomsayer I took a hard look and realized I had a little less variety than normal. When the second Balazar hit the floor I knew what had happened. It was only part way through the last one, with my 8 griffons, 8 dwarves, third doomsayer and third balazar that I did a quick recount. What I can say - not really your fault, Paizo don't pack these and after 22 odd cases I think I did OK.

Some positive feedback for you though Erik, since you don't always seem to get it. This set is very, very nice. It may well be my favourite to date (until Rusty comes out anyway) The minis are well painted in the majority and most of the sculpts are very appealing. I think the range of creatures in this set, combined with the rarity, has hit that sweet spot for me and shows the clear efforts you've put into the line. As is often the case some faces could be painted better (the dwarves mainly) but even these have faces with detail, simply a little too heavy on the paint. Its a 5 star set, as my review indicates, bask in your victory.

Rusty Dragon is looking like a good 'un.

Congratulations on Dungeon Deep. My case arrived, and aside form some collation issues, I can see it is an incredible set. Nicely produced. Hats off to you guys for that one.

Now these three look good. I must admit I have Marco M's hesitation when it comes to faces. They have been improving, while reports had me thinking the dwarves (and only the dwarves mind you) were doomed in DD, on getting them they weren't as bad. The paint is certainly over heavy but they had faces, the female much more so. The rest of the figure made up for them anyway, and on the table they are fine.

The mounted Orc is a great addition and the render looks very cool. 1 for 1

The giant is wonderful. As you say one can always use more giants. The render makes him look nicely detailed, loving the arrogant face and the tattoos, which I assume will be a tampo? The other big plus is he looks buff, like the female we just got from DD, so a good match for her. I'm still not sure what I'll do with my less buff giants (from the H&M and D&D line) though. Now I just need me some shadow giants; and maybe an ash giant or two, perhaps another marsh giant? Oh God the giants...2 for 2

The guard is a great addition. I always have need of generic miniatures like this that can act as guards for all occasions, or bandits, or hired thugs. 3 for 3.

SO far, much like young Boromir, I like all 12 previewed and look forward to this set in November - coincidentally my birth month, Yay.

Yeah I put it down to a one off, never had any issues before with prior sets. It's no biggie since I may order another case and that'll fill the gaps, leaving some multiples for friends? In the end I think I was just missing 5 rares- veiled master, bone golem, both Gnolls and Eando Kline I believe. The puckwudgie, mimic as well. I just ended up with a lot of 1 of many uncommon and 1-2 of many commons, rather than the normal 3-4 and 4-5 respectively. But I got a load of dwarves, gnolls, Baykok, gremlins, beetles, griffons (hmmm), mad gnomes and bats. And three Orc doomsayers! But also 3 balazars.

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Oh, it's not a huge deal. Just caught me by surprise. I've heard of two dupes, just not three. Curious to see it this has happened to anyone else? I wrote that shortly after opening the case, on reflection I got some very nice minis, the set is really well done and the range in this set was what kept me a subscriber. Surprisingly I only missed out on s few I was really keen for, benefit of the smaller size sets? I can always look on the singles or fork out for another case perhaps if the next D&D one has little I want in it (if it's like the last one I'll be skipping it, very poor turn out). Better luck with Rusty Dragon, kind of eagerly awaiting that one too, the more I see of the bar the more I kind of want one - must be an plastic addict.

On the singles note - any word down the grapevine on when the dressings will hit the store?

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Got mine this morning but had to wait until I got home from work. I opened my case with much anticipation and was really disappointed. Not by the quality, these look really good, even the ones I was most concerned about. I would almost say this is the best set yet to my mind. Of course I can't say that because my case came with three, yes THREE, duplicated bricks! I have a lot of griffons and bats and many missing minis. No bone golem, no veiled master, no rare gnolls, but many Yithians and a load of dwarves. Most unfortunately I have a few of the dressings. No braziers or chests or idols. I've been a subscriber from the start, this has been the worst case to date. Given the difficulty of actually getting the braziers on the singles market I think I may just have to miss out this time.

Sculpts are approved and they're in the works according to Erik Mona in the last battles blog (Friday). Hopefully we'll hear soon. Obviously they were holding off to see how well they sold, so they're now behind on the releases, well at least behind the original monthly release.

I always want more giants. Taiga giant is a big, well huge really, plus for me; Then I still want more of the 'standard' Giants, especially after seeing the art in the Giantslayer path.

Alex is 1000% on the mark as far as I'm concerned, great cyclops? Yeas please. Inverted giant (using art from Herald of the IL)? Oh. My. God. Yes!!!!

Sadly all these options are huge and we've heard naught about the future of the huge mini.

I world like a shadow giant though. And a tomb giant.

Hmmm, I may be the wrong person to ask since I seem to want many Giants still. Burnt out on Giants? Piffle I say, one can never have too many Giants.

Shadow Lodge

Unavailable? Are these already sold out? Not yet up? Or not intending to sell singles for these? I hope it's the second.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Darrell, maybe the AndRazku used it up before the sculptors saw them? Maybe if we're nice we could get a large one later. Problem is many creatures have the ability to magically change size and I don't think the line is really big enough to accomodate all of those. Never say never though, I pleaded a long time for a Mi-Go and elder thing. Bit like I'm pleading for the spriggan I hope we'll get soon, one of each size.

Thanks for the last look Erik. I sit here keenly awaiting the mail so I can bust open my cases for the goodies within. I was glad to see the codex creatures/NPCs, so much of the artwork in those books is miniature worthy. I'm sad the Orc is rare, but I can see why, I'll just have to buy more. On that note:

couple quick questions, perhaps not just for you.

Why are the Dungeons Deep minis for sale but not the dressing from the set, these are all unavailable?

What was you special inclusion in this set? Are you still slipping in a quirky of your own choice or has that stopped? Yithian?

Any word on iconics sets 4-6?

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I don't think the battles line needs to be, nor could it ever actually be painted at the same standard as iconics. For the reasons stated by Vic I think the iconics will always be better painted.Iconics just illustrates they can do it. In fact what really needed is less, they need less paint on the faces. It's applied too thick and obscures the details. The battles line is at the correct price point and quality for me, and I'm very happy with the minis, they look great on the tabletop. I'm not upset by the quality of the line, the cost, range of minis etc. I just wish they'd use less paint on the NpC faces, the line is almost perfect in my eyes.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'll find use for the bar and the NPCs but, and this is a big but ( I like big 'buts' and I'll tell you why) I really hope Wizkids master the painting of faces. After 9(?) sets some of the ones in Dungeons Deep still have very over painted or blobby faces, especially the dwarves. I know they can do better, just look at the iconics line. Would be a real shame to make some really nice NPCs that people have requested often, or based on the brilliant art from the codeces, then have those scary blob faces.

What makes you think magus? Was that mentioned somewhere? If you're just guessing, then I could definitely see you being right - I could also see him being a sorcerer/eldritch knight, or even a non-spellcasting class like fighter. His floating stance could be thanks to a magic item or custom ability.

Wishful thinking. I'm just hoping that's what he is.

I have two of the dragons sitting on my desk now with rubber bands around their left wings to pull them up a bit. In the packaging that wing is pushed down against the dragon's body and look weird that way.

I received them yesterday and I think I almost have them the way I want them. It was not a big deal to move them.

They look good. Obviously Pathfinder dragons. They fill up the base as compared with some of the other gargantuan dragons we have gotten.

Rubber bands around left wing? Care to elaborate. I'm trying to picture the issue and solution but. It's either too early here or I'm having an elderly moment.

I have seen pics but the wing didn't seem to weird. Do you have pics?

Just noticed my latest subs have shipped, order 3564281, which includes the miniatures, yay! However I note that boss monster 2 appears to be in stock, and my sidecart. Laying waste should also be in my sidecart but doesn't appear. Is this a glitch? Stock error? If the latter two are in stock can they be set to ship separately?

I'm really glad my mini sub shipped so quickly, so big thanks for that, super excited to be getting this set.

I love that cover art. This AP has some of the best cover pieces of all the APs in my opinion, the giant looks great. I think he looks correctly proportioned and I like the idea of the falcatta, and what I assume is the orb of dragon kind. I assume he's flying, hovering in readiness to use his hopefully awesome Magus powers! Kind of makes me wish they make miniatures of the cover Giants, I know I'd but them if only for the foremost giant death knight, fire giant and this one.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Erik, if your still setting up another set and still looking for minis I'd like to see just a few more Giants. I thought I was satisfied wit the number I have but since then the art from Giantslayer has come out, and let's face it every one of those cover Giants and a ton of the interior art are amazing candidates for miniatures. In particular Grenseldek in the appendix, and that fire giant tyrant on the cover of Anvil of Fire. I know we've had a glut but I could still use a few - female hill, shadow, ash, cave.

Mike and I got a crack on the setlist for the next set today.

I'm at the same time super excited about the cool stuff in there and dreading the inevitable disappointment each of these reveals seems to bring.

But, as this message board is not a personal diary, I think I'll leave it at that for now.

Hope you enjoy what we have coming up next week.

Some of you won't. :)

Interesting.

Is this the set after rusty dragon, or the one after that?
I can say I'm far from disappointed with each of the reveals. I certainly have opinions, but not disappointment (like the old saying - opinions are like a#%holes, everybody has one) This reveal, for instance, is great and has me excited for the set. I'm just bummed that I won't get a gargantuan monster. I may well be happy with the bar, need to see a good picture. If I recall clearly you did mention much earlier it was an experimental incentive in this set, and a try for something very different. Interesting to see how it actually turns out. If it's successful perhaps a large wagon could be next, or a caravan, with options to turn it into a covered, uncovered, armoured wagon. Bear in mind we still need that gargantuan black.

I notice on a closer read you say the set has a focus on ghouls and bugbears. Is this like the gnoll focus in DD? Could we see 4 or so of each from the codex? I do hope so, some of the artwork in that is amazing. Been a good run for me, gnolls first, now ghouls and bugbears.

Any more lovecraftian goodies here? Surely they haunt inns as well as dungeons?

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Have to agree with you in regard to the incentive Mr Geddes. I'm a little "anti-enthused" by the bar as well. I like my gargantuan minis, and in the absence of huge minis these days, really look forward to that one per set slot.

I'm all for the innocents, I tend to use them in battles. They help curb the explosive spells and add some rescue the innocent moments that break up standard combats.

Now I'm not opposed to the dressing, in fact I love the idea and am looking forward to the brazier and cauldron. However I am hoping when to dressing we'll see some more generic (that's prob not the right word) ones in this set - say large round table, chairs. I would have loved a round pillar, but that seemed to fit better with DD than this set. Beds would be good. A large cart, and horse miniatures. That sort of thing.

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Erik, am I right in assuming the quivering cube isn't hollow? Would love to be able to put a mini inside, but it doesn't look like it has that capacity. Looks damned good though, and it means I can get me some cubes at long last. Although at rare I may have to hunt.

On that I understand the common wench and perhaps the uncommon barkeep. Is the tyrant an uncommon because of the relative simplicity of his sculpt and paint. Seems odd to have the top level bugbear at the uncommon rarity. Not that I mind, if the actual is even close to the render I'll be a happy with 3-4 of them.

When will we hear more on the iconics sets 4-6? Really pleased with these to date, the quality has been exceptional (no 3 just arrived and you can colour me impressed)

Eh, I see the evil path in the same light as kingmaker, reign of winter, iron gods etc. it's experimental and it can work, but it will have a fair share of lovers and haters like the others did. I hope they put out some guidelines to playing evil, I think most people miss the mark and that's what creates the friction in an evil group. Evil doesn't have to equate to fractious. One of my best gaming experiences was with an evil party.

Any word on the pathfinder battles iconics line? And can someone confirm the incentive piece for the next battles set is actually a bar?

Shadow Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Looks like a wood colossus to me, rather than a golem. I guess by number 5 your going to get a few esoteric monsters. Of course I'm down with that, I love the weird ones.

On the minis front the Rusty Dragon looks like an interesting set, curious to see what monsters make it into this one. Not sure about a Bar as the incentive, if it actually is. Since there's only two sets a year, I think I'd prefer an actual monster, but I'm happy to wait and see.

Any word on the pathfinder iconics line? Sadly quiet on that front. Hope it doesn't stop at three, especially since there was really no new iconics in these sets, I was/am looking forward to the other iconics.

Daemons, Devils and qlippoth would always be welcome, but we only recently got a demon heavy set. I would certainly love to see a few scattered through sets. Of course we've been getting a lot of giants too, and I'm not tired of them yet - need the female hill and fire! Go grenseldek!

Rakshasa I too would love a leukodaemon, but I'm not certain the art is a great reference for sculpting from. Awesome art though.

Quick question, probably for you Vic. I would like to get 2 cases, I'm a subscriber, but if both ship I will end up over the allowable limit for not paying import duties. If I leave my sub at one, then later order a second, will I get it at the discounted subscriber rate? Does my question even make sense?

I don't think any of Nux, Furiosa or Max actually seize the lead role. I came out thinking all of them faired equally well. I would have liked to have seen more dialogue for Max since that's the movie title but I thought Millar had it balanced very well, personally I was astounded at the feminine rights take, it just didn't occur to me. Furiosa saved 5 women from a tyrannical lunatic in a dystopian future - seems like the human thing to do, not feminist. Max came along and offered the ultimate solution to their predicament once his own conscious got the better of him, humanity again. Let's face the real star is millers vision and the stuntmen.

Just so Steve doesn't feel like he gets all the fun. Here are some of the art pieces I think would make great minis and have enough to actually make good art references.

Ilee, distant worlds, page 46. Out there and difficult but very creepy

Baragara, bestiary 3, p34

Kyton interlocutor, bestiary 3, p174

Troll hound, bestiary 3, p274. Sadly I'm not sure the art is that good for sculpting from

Manacielo gremlin, bestiary 4, p144

Sacristan Kyton, bestiary 4, p177

Tooth fairy, bestiary 4, p262. Creepy, and somewhat oddball fey. Great art.

Bugbear tyrant, NPC codex, p27

Fire giant queen, NPC codex, p32

Pugwampi gremlin, bestiary 2, p144. THE single most annoying creature ever.

Qlippoth cythinigot, bestiary 2, p 221. Seriously creepy

Morgh, bestiary, p208. Give is almost transparent purple innards and I think it would be a winner.

Male drider, the inner sea would guide, p61. Perfect reinvention of the drider and a perfect dark echo of the females already out there.

Knight of abendego, the inner sea world guide, p177

Thin man, inner sea bestiary, p52. It's a fey! Creepy too.

Shadow giant, inner sea bestiary, p15. I know we've had a LOT of giants but these just exude evil and cool in equal measure.

Death whisperer, NPC Codex, p158

God Stealer, NPC codex, p207.

Chaos arrow, NPC codex, p 203.

Red mantis assassin, inner sea NPC codex, p 47

Thanks.

As for not doing this. You just wait until you've completed all the minis I desire, although admittedly this set knocks a few of those off, well a lot really. For the next set let me just say two words - Red Mantis. The artwork from inner sea codex is good, at least I think it was that, the one with the fully dressed female standing in the Crimson mist. Now I'll have to go check. Maybe four more words- small and large Spriggan.

It is awesome. Paper thin plot, but I just found myself unable to look away, every moment reveals some odd dystopian element that had me thinking how ludicrous it was, yet I just accepted it. Doof Wagon? What the hell? Best vehicle in the whole damn movie. I am so glad to see the MAd Max legacy continue and I hope Millar can pull a sequel to matches it.

I may have missed something here what's the MRAs? Mens rights? I remember hearing something about a bit of a $%$& storm about that.

Oh and Tinkergoth this one was almost filmed in Australia as well, but when they went to film the rain came and all they could film was flowers and bird life - strangely Millar decided that wasn't the direction he wanted.

I also find it odd to see Balazar and Padrig in this set and the latest iconics set. I assume, as Marco eluded, the decision was made some time back to include them in this set. Of course its only 2 rares in the set so it doesn't have a great impact. On the plus side both look good - I'm assuming these are paint masters though.

As a counterpoint to one of the comments above I find myself liking that Dragon more and more with each reveal, mind you I loved the promise the digital sculpt held anyway. The pose to me looks like the classic "roaring to the heavens before I swat the annoying little folk". What makes it better for me is the uniformity with the small to huge we got in the evolution pack, a set I wish we could have seen more of - still need the blue, green and black.

Marco is right that leaves only one piece of dungeon decor to be revealed, so with that in mind let me say well done on this set. Take pride in the work Erik, this set is exceptional. Now I just have the impatient run to the actual release.

With PaizoCon around the corner are we liekly to hear any word on the future of the battles line. Obviously the next set is a little way off yet but I'm keen to hear about the next iconics or other planned sets - Evolution? Huge? Themed packs?

Awe, sad face. Thought I'd found something. Now I'm just sad. Seems I got into a bad habit of skimming after reading all the unchained threads.

I still want the gargantuan black dragon. Then I'd have to go neothellid, linnorm, shoggoth, elementals. I'd also be happy with getting a few colossal minis disguised as gargantuans, like Mr Geddes above once I get to that end of the size spectrum it wouldn't bother me too much. In much the same way some of the tiny and diministive minis come disguised as small.

Could simply be because the iconics sets are made by wizkids not paizo. I think I've encountered a similar thing before.

But it would allow for class features that would allow 2 reactions that are not AoO, or feats etc.

So how does this sound? The Unchained monk, would get 2 attacks using Flurry of Blows at full BAB using 1 act, then at 11th, they could do 3, using full BAB.

Using a Ki point as an act, would ad 1 addiction attack, at full BAB in the Flurry.

That is a hell of a lot of attacks using a single act, (2 if using Ki), considering that in the old AE, a Flurry is a full round thing.

The alternative, which I'm strongly considering for the UC monk, is considering Flurry, as an "Advanced Action", that would require 2 acts, (3 acts, if you spend the act to add Ki, for an additional attack). The tradeoff, of Flurry being 2 act, is that it's full BAB for all attacks.

EDIT: The more I think of it, that second alternative, seems like it would be defeating the purpose of what Flurry is supposed to be...

I think alternative one better suits the intent and gives a great boost to unchained monk as as Martials. At level 1 flurry means you make 2 attacks at full BAB for first attack action, at level 11 make 3attacks at ful BAB for first attack action. One attack for all others. Means monk has slightly more mobility options at higher levels, can get 2 moves and three attacks if he wants to be particularly mobile. Or he can squeeze out 5 attacks, 6 if hasted, if he stands toe to toe. Or even 4 attacks, 5 if hasted, if he moves in first.

I understand the hesitation behind 1-act VS though, so consider this alteratiom - VS raises your first attack by 1 damage dice, IVS raises your first and second attacks by 1 damage dice, and GVS improves your first 3 attacks by 1 damage dice. A character with all three feats has the equivalent of GVS, IVS, and VS on their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd attacks respectively. While this is still strong it is much more reasonable while making VS usable again and making 2HW builds more competitive again.

LuniasM I really like you take on the VS chain. The feats are pretty cheap, BAB requirement only and this boosts damage without costing anything. Also brings it in line with two weapon potential. So a great sword loon with VS gets to roll 4d6 on first attack, 2d6 on rest, IVS is 4d6 on first 2 then 2d6 and GVS is 4d6 all three for a net gain after three feats of 6d6 damage. Question is does this then make the VS chain a basic set of feats everyone will strive to get in order to get what is effectively no more than an upgrade to damage? How does it stack with two weapon or flurry? Are they mutually exclusively? i feel it needs a rule that prevents stacking with flurry and TWF, of course this need be little more than "vital strike can not be used in conjunction with flurry of blows and two weapon fighting".

Also on the POUNCE front. I think pounce could be covered by simply allowing a free action (movement only) before one attack action in any round. This lets the old pouncer:
Pounce up to its foe (free) and unload all natural attacks
Attack a foes, then move (free) to a second and attack twice
Attack a foe, move (free) attack a foe and move.
This fits with my image of a pouncing foe that' moves rapidly between goes leaping from one to another, or suddenly leaping forward to mail a target, or drops one target, turns and with toothy grin leaps at a second.
