BG Mistake


Savage Tide Adventure Path


In BG, it describes many horribly deformed corpses of savage pirates. But they blow up when they die, how do I explain this to my players?


You don't.

It's one of the mysteries of the Savage Tide that they'll have to unravel later.

The horribly deformed corpses are those that survived the initial attack, started to transform but were partially eaten (adding to the horrible deformities). Much like in certain horror movies where a victim is starting to undergo "critterfication" when said victim's last moment on the screen is under the claws/fangs/natural weapons of the critter(s) in question.

I had it where just their guts blew out of them, leaving an acid covered hollow corpse.

Yeah, there are a few wonky things about savage creatures, and being that they have resistance to acid 10, I would assume that their bodies can stand their own acid. Much more realistic than drying up and blowing away.

It's a plague created by the one of the most chaotic Outsiders in all the Multiverse. It's supposed to make sense? :P
