Do you know if the Pathfinder Comic book is continuing? I don't see any new releases after Hollow Mountain #6.
Btw, Hollow Mountain was great!
What do you look for when determining a monster's "role"? Would you consider Anti-Paladin levels to be Key for a Minotaur? Reason I ask is that the Bestiary says Paladin is never Key for a monster.
I do know if the comic is continuing beyond Hollow Mountain, but I'm not the one to say it is or isn't if we haven't announced a yes or no for that elsewhere.
What I look for when determining a monster's role varies per the role:
ANY ROLE: This is any zero HD monster race who is defined by its class levels.
COMBAT ROLE: This is the default for an intelligent monster that doesn't fit another role.
NO ROLE: This is the role for unintelligent monsters, or creatures with a 1 or 2 Intelligence; these creatures are not smart enough to gain class levels.
SKILL ROLE: This is the hardest to define, but basically, if a monster has racial sneak attack dice or if it has a LOT of skill-associated stuff going on or it's incorporeal and can't cast spells it goes here.
SPECIAL ROLE: This is a catch all for monsters that don't fit any other role well for various reasons.
SPELL ROLE: This is for any monster that has a class-like spellcasting ability.
