Is that a huge morningstar or what?

Just took a look at the coverart for issue 135, that's a HUGE morningstar Kyuss is sporting.

Kyuss himself isn't small either.

Like the Cover of #124 (first installment), the cover of the last installment of AoW is again - EPIC!!!
Great, great cover, can't wait to hold in in my hands...

Agreed.

It's actually a brand new weapon called an executioner's mace. And yup, we're pretty proud of how the painting turned out. Wayne Reynolds = Awesome.


So when can we get "the art of Dungeon and Dragon" book?


I am so excited to run this climactic issue, but it seems so far away as we are in the middle of Spire of Long Shadows.

I hope AP3 is at least as good as AoW - this has been a wonderful ride.


Yea I wonder what the damage on that sucker is. :)

Gaint Executioners Mace - 10d6+60 20/x3

OUCH!

Speaking of a 'The Art of Dungeons & Dragons.' Anyone remember the old 2nd ed Monsterous Manual type book that had 'ring binder' pages and came with several 8x11 cardboard paintings? There was one in particular of an ogre in the snow about to smash the life out of a poor guy who fell over in fright and had his tiny little shield over him thinking it'd protect him? Man that was the best painting of an ogre I've ever seen and to this day thats how I picture them. I cant stand the 3.0/3.5 MM ogres :/

I should have framed that picture. I dont know what ever happened to it. If I ever found it again I'd take the image to Kinko's or something and get a poster made of it lol.


I've got that picture :)

Seriously though, I would buy a book of art from the AoW AP.


Executioner's axe...looks like it is capable of slashing, piercing, and bludgeoning damage. The depiction of Kyuss in 'Spire of Long Shadows' with that weapon really set my players on edge ;-)

hmmmm, Kyuss has his own signature weapon.....which covers all the bases (slashing, piercing, bludgeoning).

Does that make Kyuss a munchkin??

And yes the cover is awesome.

Probably. Of course, the fact that he can do all 3 damage types with that thing pales in comparasion to the other things that particular executioner's mace can do... it's an artifact, you see...

ROTFLMAO

I think that was a priceless little joke that must did not get, or were afraid to comment on.

Thanks for the laugh Vic.

dosen't Kyuss' mace turn foe's into undead when it hits them?

Nah, he's just compensating, it's hard feeling manly if your 'entire' body consists of worms.

Someone should tell Kyuss there's a cream for that...

Actually, it was the cover of Dragon issue #119. And that wasn't an ogre but the demon-lord Kostchtchie taking on two legionaries of the Roman Empire in Britain.

If that's the case, I think my PC's will be lining up to get whacked.

"So, let me get this straight. If Kyuss hits me, I become immune to crits/sneak attacks, stunning, mind-affecting effects, etc.? I head-butt his morningstar!!"

What the munckins of the world really want to know is whether that thing can be monkey-gripped.


"Is that a huge morningstar in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?"
"I just want to know if I can monkey-grip that thing..."

This is SO wrong.

And now for something completely different:

Just how does one go about killing a god? And I guarantee at least one of my players is going to want to absorb his divinity a'la "Time of Troubles" style.


That's it.

My next charachter is going to wield an Executoner's Mace.


That's kinda cool. My Eldritch Knight in the AoW right now was going to fabricate the item he saw in the visions in SoLS, but my DM asked me to hold off until he could get his hands on the weapon's stats. Here's me hoping that it's absolutely borken.


James Jacobs detailed more about the excutioner's mace in a previous thread, titled Countdown to Kyuss. Be warned, there are also spoilers about Kyuss' appearance in Dawn of a New Age.

And I'm sure after more than a thousand years in captivity, Kyuss is glad to see EVERYONE :)
