Knowing the Chelaxian penchant for legalism and infernal bureaucracy, I think there would be a Bureau of Cadaver Animation overseeing such activity.

You must get a waiver signed by one of their officials including the numbers and nature of your undead flock and pay for a permit (KEEP YOUR RECEIPTS!). This is important because animate dead spells prevent the use of a simple raise dead spell. If someone can prove they had the money and intent to raise their loved one and you cast animate dead they could file suit against you. They must be tagged to identify them as your property. You may be liable for any damage they inflict (assuming anyone remains to file a complaint).

You get the idea.

"Just how do trolls regenerate?"

I've asked myself that question for years. So for my home game I developed a story and built it into a mechanic that makes great sense: it's all in their biology. If you learn the secret, you gain an advantage over the troll. And much more...

In this little booklet you get some great crunch including feats, equipment and a troll king! All for what you'd pay for a premium cup of coffee.

Please check it out and if you like it let me know here. Would you like to see some adventures based on this?

"As to "The Styes", maybe a Backdrop article with lots of descriptions, NPCs, and adventure hooks. There's a whole lot to be developed about just exactly what is lurking down among the pilings?"

@John Leclaire - Thanks for the kind remarks! Its an honor to compete with you as well.

@Jim Groves - Thanks for clarifying the meaning of 'word frugality' and 'tight mechanics'. I understand it better now. And thanks for the encouraging words!

Blade of The Ice Stalker
Aura strong evocation; CL 12th
Slot none; Price 32,310 gp; Weight 2 lbs.
Description
An unnaturally cold, razor thin blade of magically hardened ice juts from the pommel of this +2 frost and keen short sword. On a successful critical hit, an ice shard breaks off into the wound inflicting numbing cold. The victim gains the staggered condition and receives 2 points of cold damage per round for the next five rounds before the shard melts. The shard can be removed with a DC 15 Heal check or the application of 2 points of fire damage. A fresh blade reforms from the pommel a round later from the ambient moisture in the air, however the wielder can reform the blade as a swift action by thrusting the hilt into a container of water or swiping it crossed a spill on the floor. Lastly, while wielding the blade of the ice stalker the wielder’s eyes acquire a striking blue gleam and gain the ability to see heat emitted by living creatures. This functions as darkvision to a range of 30 feet, but only for purposes of seeing warm creatures or surfaces.
Construction
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, frigid touch, darkvision; Cost 16,155 gp

This means I have time to work on a submission for the next topic, which I can't get to until I finish the next two rotations ending sometime in the autumn. That's my silver lining.

True enough Isuru. OSW, please don't confuse our impatience with contempt. We're all just very excited about this release! :^ D

Waiting around for a response can be tedious.
Instead, forget about Wayfinder and work on something else. It's the best way to pass the time folks! :^ )

Pickled Orc’s Feet
Aura Faint Necromantic; CL 6th
 Slot --; Price 4,800 gp; Weight 20 lbs.

Description
 Inside a sturdy tin canister filled with pungent liquid floats a pair of greenish orc’s feet. Removing the feet and speaking the command word animates them. They walk or run just like a living orc following the simple verbal commands of the owner. Because the feet tread with the same weight as typical orc (190 lbs.), they can be used to test the safety of treacherous passageways and can trigger traps and tripwires. Pickled Orc’s Feet are AC 12, have 9 hit points and a Dexterity of 10. The feet cannot fight but can carry an attached fine-sized object (such as a candle or small note). If damaged (but not destroyed) the feet can be placed back into their briny canister where they recover lost hit points at the rate of 1 per day.
ConstructionRequirements Craft Wondrous Item, lesser animate dead, craft alchemy; Cost 2,400 gp
