Dark Souls Bestiary - the Asylum to Anor Londo

Hello all.

I've been preparing for a Dark Souls game, as noted in other threads. Part of this has been monster creation. Since the game is still months away from actually starting (due to several IRL concerns), I've started out by simply writing up the monsters for the first half of Dark Souls 1 - from the Asylum to Anor Londo.

As such, these monsters are sorted vaguely by area and assume a level 1 party starting out at the Asylum - and being a level 10 party by the time they finish Anor Londo.

Oh, and if you're wondering about the Ice and Acid - I equated Ice with Magic resistance and Acid with Poison and Toxic resistance (along with actual poison).

Feedback is welcome as I'm still making adjustments.

Also an apology on formatting - in my document, all of these have the correct Bold and Italics, but copy-paste into the forum doesn't keep that formatting. Sorry.

Gear medium mwk halberd, large mwk heavy steel shield, large mwk fullplate, holy symbol
Special Abilities
Divine Servant (Su): A royal sentinel is a chosen defender of its god, and gains spells as a cleric of half its HD. If a royal sentinel is created with additional HD, it gains additional caster levels of cleric. Royal sentinels can also take levels of cleric. If they do so, their divine servant caster level stacks for the purpose of determining spells per day and the power of their spells, but is ignored when determining other aspects (so a royal sentinel with 1 level of cleric would only gain domain bonus spells at 1st level and only the 1st level domain ability, and the orisons of a 1st level cleric).
Healed by Positive Energy (Su): Unlike other constructs, royal sentinels are forged with a soul. This soul both grants them minor intelligence and allows them to be healed by positive energy as if they were a living creature.
Undersized Weapon (Ex): A royal sentinel can wield a medium sized halberd as if it were a large one-handed weapon. When used in this manner, the halberd loses its reach quality. This has no effect on the sentinel's natural 10 ft. reach.

Variant Sentinels
There are weaker versions of the Royal Sentinels who lack spellcasting. They lose the divine servant ability and all cleric spellcasting ability. Their wisdom is reduced to 11 (reducing their Will save to +5 and perception to +16). Finally a lesser Sentinel loses the Shield Mastery feat and instead gains Weapon Focus (halberd), reducing it's attack with its halberd by 1 and with its shield by 5. This also reduces the sentinel's damage with a shield by 3.
Such a sentinel is CR 12.

As should be obvious, I have not yet done optional areas like the Painting or Darkroot. I plan to, but I figured I should A) get some general feedback first and B) think a bit more about what CR those areas should be geared towards - or if they should be geared to a CR at all.


I'm definitely gonna use some of these for my own games. The only thing I really saw that looked to powerful was the poison the the undead rats do. It could easily kill a more squishy character.

Do you think it's worth bumping the rats up to CR 3?

A character would get a new save every round (as normal with poison). Even with a +0 modifier, that's a 40% chance to negate the damage and end the poison each round.

The other logical option would have been 1d2 Con per round, which is worse since it can't be healed quickly (Lesser Restoration takes 3 rounds whereas Cure Light takes only 1).

Of course, Dark Souls doesn't really have "diseases" which would normally be the go-to for rats, giant or otherwise.


Hm, I was always under the impression that the head honchos, including Ornstein and Smough, were not undead. I would probably make them humanoids with the giant subtype.

Nice!


I don't think Ornstein and Smough are undead though. Otherwise very nice work there!


I forgot about the new save every round thing, I would just drop the rats poison to a 1d4 so that a couple bad rolls won't insta kill my character.

Ornstein and Havel were companions with Gwyn, and Havel is Hollow, so I assumed that Ornstein was likewise Hollow. To be Hollow, one must first be undead.

Although, someone else pointed out that technically Hollows shouldn't be undead - they should be native outsiders. But they look like undead and act like undead, so...

I SUPPOSE I could throw a Mythic rank onto Ornstein if y'all think he needs to be more divine than others.

I can't edit the OP anymore, but I did change the rat in my personal document to be 1d4 acid per round rather than 1d6.

HP damage poisons are rare enough in Pathfinder that they can be hard to balance.


Alright then, other than that one thing I think you nailed the rest of them...good job, I can't wait to see the rest of what you're gonna do


Dot.


Dox of the ParaDox twins wrote:

That brings up a good question actually - any thoughts on what I SHOULD do next?

I based my CRs on a "generally accepted starting order" for the areas in Dark Souls 1. That is, I looked at a thread where people talked about what order they did the bosses in and watched a few LPs and took note of what order people did things in to get a sense of what order a party going through the same story would encounter things.

Since there is an initial quest that guides players to certain locations, the Asylum to Anor Londo was fairly easy to chart. However, in theory, the four locations that follow can be done in any order and should be "equally" challenging (with most agreeing that the Tomb of Giants is the hardest area).

If I was actually running the first game as my campaign (I'm not - my plan is far weirder than that), then I'd likely wait to see which area my players wanted to go to first and stat that set up next - but since that isn't how I'm actually planning to do this (and since I'm not actually starting this game until this Fall/Winter), I am less certain of which branch to tackle first.

Alternatively, I could instead work on Darkroot or the Painted World. The Painted World at least is easy to guess the relative CR of (since you need to be in Anor Londo before you can access it), but Darkroot you can get to very easily early in the game (suggesting comparatively Low CR) - but also has some incredibly ass-spankingly hard enemies, at least compared to areas around it (suggesting more mid-range CRs). The Sealed Door offers a natural break point - lower CR enemies outside, higher ones within - so that could help a bit.

So, I'm open to suggestions. What area would you like me to tackle next, and what APL would you suggest for it?

Oh, and for reference, the Asylum was APL 1, Undead Burg was APL 3, Undead Parish was APL 4, Lower Undead Burg was APL 5, the Depths and Blighttown were APL 7, Sen's Fortress was APL 8, and Anor Londo was APL 10. So if you're like "Darkroot is about as difficult as X-location" then that will hopefully give you an idea about how I was trying to balance things.

Edit: Oh! One last thing. I have been making all of the major boss fights aprox APL +4 or +5. So again, to use Darkroot as an example, if you say I should make Darkroot APL 7, then that would make Sif and the Hydra about CR 12.

Don't forget Havel!


I would make as many of the enemies not be undead as possible. Make a new descriptor, subtype, or template called cursed. Reason being in Pathfinder there are many ways to be absolutely devastating to undead, but in the Souls games no such abilities exist.

I wouldn't worry too much about the CRs scaling with party level. You end up with challenges that don't necessarily match the game. For example, the Capra demon is a huge pain in the butt. At low power levels, the easiest way to fight him involves exploiting the terrain (similar to fighting black knights if you aren't used to them). But you have the titanite demon as much higher CR. He's imposing for sure, especially you're first time. But he can be beaten with the standard Souls strategy of sticking as close to his body and strafing, on top of other ways to beat him.

This is just my interpretation since I've thought of this before. The standard routes through the Souls games are based on a variety of factors: your skill level, what weapon you want to rush, speed running, etc. I wouldn't enforce any of those in determining CR. Just think about when you played through those and get a rough estimate. If the CR is out of whack, make sure there are alternative routes or that the bosses have exploitable weaknesses. Pathfinder would be very video gamey if it had things like exploitable terrain, but you can always have something like elemental weaknesses that are much stronger than the normal vulnerability. That matches up the souls games quite well. Then your players can find say 10 black firebombs on the way to a boss...and hopefully take the hint.

Good job on the stats so far!

Oh and even though it may seem unbalancing, I would include the summons from the game too. That's half the fun ;)


If you don't mind me asking, would you PM me your idea for your game, I'm quite curious. Also I agree that you at want to create a new subtype or type that's basically undead without the weaknesses of undead (unless of course you already are anticipating those things)

I think the biggest change I would make is that most of the enemies shouldn't actually be evil. A major theme of the Dark Souls series is that the main character is an easily manipulated selfish jackass who leaves destruction and ruin in their wake. Dark Souls is supposed to eventually make you ask yourself, "why am I doing this? Am I really the good guy here?" Even the demons aren't really evil; they're just creatures of chaos forcibly born into a world where they don't really belong, labelled as demons because they're scary.

Some even appear to be Lawful. Those batwing demons who helpfully carry you back and forth between Sen's Fortress and Anor Londo and never attack you (well, that group anyway) leap to mind.

Hm. Actually, does that group of demons stick around after **SPOILER** when most of the other enemies in the area stop spawning? I never thought to check.

Anyway, the versions posted here are meant for sharing - most GMs are (in theory) going to want Chaotic Evil demons and horrible undead. Which is why...

drumlord wrote:

... I really don't want to do that. I'm trying to make these as plug-and-play as possible, and creating whole new subtype would make that harder.

For my situation, it will be easier to modify what the PCs can do than modify the monsters to prevent things from happening to them. In my other Dark Souls mechanics thread (which has mutated from XP to Magic Items and will be taking another turn here soon), I'll be working on Spell Lists and what spells need to be added/removed/messed with to fit Dark Souls.

Also, you mentioned things that are "absolutely devastating to undead" - and honestly I can't think of that many things that target undead but not other things - with a handful of exceptions.

Searing Light (a low level spell that does extra damage to undead)
Channel Positive Energy

I'm not too worried about searing light because, while powerful for its level, there are spells that are actually more deadly vs outsiders (the 2nd level ray spell versions of Holy Smite etc from UM), so really, that's no different from abilities that hurt those creatures.

As for Channel Positive Energy, well... if my PCs are also "undead", then they'd be healed by Negative Energy and harmed by positive energy. Channeling Positive would be powerful, but it would also be very likely to cause friendly fire (or require Selective Channel). So again, not that worried.

Hm. Yeah, I can't think of anything else that hits undead harder than anything else.

Oh. This might be a good time to mention that one of my long-standing house-rules has removed the "double damage to certain things on the first attack" from smites. Not for balance (although that is a pleasant side effect) but because it's too hard to remember and screws up damage calculations. So a smite wouldn't hit a Hollow any harder than it would hit anything else smiteable.

Did I cover your concern, or am I forgetting something? It's been a long day, and I can be scatterbrained at the best of times, so that is entirely possible.


Sandal Fury wrote:

Yeah, see? I completely wandered off to a different topic without actually finishing my reply to you. ^^;;

Anyway, yeah, some of it is "plug and play". People expect their demons and undead to be evil, even if they don't act evil in the game.

Some of it is also player utility. If my players think they're good (even if they're being manipulated by divine beings in a game of chess far beyond their comprehension), they still THINK they're good, and will put "good" on their character sheets. They will (in theory) be using "good" spells which target "evil" creatures.

Thirdly... a good deal of the time, Dark Souls feels like "evil vs evil" to me. Qualaag is trying to save her sister... by stealing humanity from undead. The other demons are mostly sitting around being a%~**#+s to anyone who comes near, leaping down from tall places to try to squash you, etc. And I think part of that is because Dark Souls tries very hard to set up a Zero Sum Game - the only way to keep your humanity is to murder other undead and steal theirs. Everyone seems to be very selfish - possibly because those who weren't selfish are either dead or imprisoned. So yeah, if I was liberal with the "evil" type it's because the whole world seems selfish at best and raging-homicidal-a@$%&*~ at worst.

Edit: **laughs** I forgot that Paizo censors certain words. Well played, Paizo forum.


Anyway, back to the topic. I'm leaning towards Darkroot next, but I still don't feel like I have a good idea about the APL - mostly because Dark Souls is very well designed to hide such things.

From my experience, I would say that the early areas of Darkroot are harder than the Undead Burg but easier than Anor Londo. Thing ramp up to possibly harder than Anor Londo after the sealed door, but I can worry about that later.

So, from anyone who wants to, what are your gut impressions of Darkroot as compared to, say the Depths or Sen's Fortress? Harder? Easier?

The enemies are harder than those in Sen's Fortress, there it's the environment that gets you (aka be very afraid of the CR 1/4 Kobold).


Rysky wrote:

Mmm, that's a good point. In fact, it inspired me to mention another idea of mine (see the Visible Traps thread).

Okay then, working from that logic, would you say that the enemies in Blighttown are weaker or harder than those in Darkroot?


I'd say that most of the difficulty in blighttown comes from the dropped frames (that's a joke) in all seriousness I think that blight town is a little more difficult...I'm not sure though


Lagtown, worst place to invade evar.

Poison swamp and toxic dart shooters make it real difficult.

Did you forget the painting guardians? The player does need to deal with a bunch of them, even if not intentionally going to the painted world.

This (no comment on the lag), the Depths and the Blightown are the same as Sen's Fortress, it's the environment. And poison. The individual enemies aren't hard by themselves, that poison just adds up.


Depths do seem to be a good spot for PvP, and Sen's Funhouse is good for invading once you get the timing of the pendulums down(The boulder stair is a good place to fend people off)


Serum wrote:

I didn't forget about them, but I did leave them out.

First off, I couldn't remember if you HAD to fight them prior to going to the painting, or if you could just walk past the room. If the former, then yeah, I should include them, but if the later, then I could put them with the Painted World stuff.

Secondly, and correct me if I'm wrong here, but I don't recall them being that tough individually. The main problem was that they swarm you if you aren't careful/don't see them in time. (This leads into item three)

Thirdly, and again, I may be remembering wrong, but I seem to recall that they're two-weapon fighters who like to flank and backstab the player - so basically just like my Hollow Thieves - at least build wise. So one plan was to slap the Advanced Template on my Hollow Thieves, swap their daggers for short swords, and call it a day. However, that would be kinda boring.

Alternatively, I thought about making them dervish dancer bards, but they never cast spells (that I recall), so that doesn't quite work either.

So yeah, I put off the painting guardians because I was having a hard time figuring out what to make them class-wise. I was torn between the two ideas, couldn't decide, and said "eh, I'll wait until I do the painted world".

I am open to suggestions.


So the consensus is that Sen's Fortress, Blighttown, and the Depths are about equal - which is actually about how they came out in my document (APL 7-8).

I have Anor Londo set at APL 10.

So... maybe APL 9 for Darkroot? That would make the Hydra about CR 13 or 14.

If that sounds about right, I'll start building monsters. There might be a hiatus for a week or two while I get them written up.


Those numbers sound about right to me


You have to face a few guardians the first time through Anor Londo when you cross Gwenevyre's chapel

Aside from them acting like hollow thieves by jumping you at the beginning of the chapel, and if you keep your distance, they'll chuck knives at you. This includes when you're trying to navigate the rafters in the chapel (another narrow walking section, where, if you're not careful, you'll find yourself knocked off by the painting guardians).

Okay, so do you think that Advanced Hollow Thief with different equipment would do for them? It's certainly easier than building a whole new enemy, but I torn between not wanting to sell them short and not wanting to waste time making the exact same build as Hollow Thieves again from scratch.

Cool. Then I will begin work on the enemies in Darkroot.

Expect this thread to go cool for a week or so while I work on it. Also because my Bones III Kickstarter rewards are arriving tomorrow, so I may be busy painting for a while. ^^

Crystal Eruption (Su): As a full-round action, a crystal golem unleash a blast of crystals centered on itself. All creatures within a 30 ft. radius around the Crystal Golem take 12d6 points of damage (Ref DC 18 for half) - half slashing, half cold. The Crystal Golem - and any other Crystal Golems within the radius - are immune to this damage. Once used, a Crystal Golem may not use its Crystal Eruption again for 2d4 rounds.
Imprison (Su): A Crystal Golem may imprison a medium sized creature within it's "head" as a full-round action. To do so, a target must be helpless or must be pinned (as per the normal grapple rules - the Golem has no particular bonus to this attempt). While imprisoned, the victim does not age and is not technically conscious, although some former victims report having a few scattered memories or a sense of the passage of time.
Most Crystal Golems do not have a captured victim, but those that do are empowered by the process, gaining a +2 bonus to hit, damage, and saving throws, as well as Fast Healing 10. However, while imprisoning a target, a Crystal Golem also loses its immunity to mind-affecting spells, using the imprisoned victim's intelligence score instead of its own.
Destroying the golem frees the victim. While the golem continues to function, the victim is protected from all damage. However, as soon as the golem is destroyed, that immunity ends, meaning that any non-instantaneous effects my harm the freed prisoner.
A Crystal Golem can have no more than one imprisoned victim at a time. Often, Crystal Golems are given orders to seek out specific individuals and return them to their creators. There are also rumors of special Crystal Golems that are designed to keep the imprisoned target conscious and allow them to take direct control of the Crystal Golem, effectively making the Golem a massive suit of impenetrable armor. Whether such golems actually exist, or if the Crystal Golems found in Darkroot are failures in an attempt to create such a device, is unknown.

Special Abilities
Decapitation (Ex): A hydra's neck can be severed by dealing 25 damage to its neck. A hydra dies if all seven of its heads are decapitated.
Limited Flight (Su): A Hydra is capable of leaping great distances and gliding on a jet of water. The Hydra may expend a use of its breath weapon to gain a fly speed of 80 ft. (clumsy) for one round. The Hydra cannot make any maneuvers - it can only fly in a straight line. All creatures directly beneath the Hydra when it flies are subject to its breath weapon.
Multi-head Collision (Ex): While a hydra has seven heads (to start with), it's heads are so large that it can bring no more than two of them to bear on any single medium-sized target. This also applies to adjacent medium sized targets. Targets that spread out more can be attacked by two heads each (up to seven attacks total).
Multi-head Cone (Ex): A Hydra's breath weapon is actually a 140 ft. line, but each head emits the line in a fan-like formation, effectively creating a massive cone-shaped attack. As the hydra loses more heads, the cone narrows until it becomes a line (when only one head remains).
Water Breath (Su): A Hydra's breath weapon is made up of icy cold water, which deals 16d6 damage, half of which is cold, and half of which is blunt (ref half). Creatures who fail their reflex saving throw are also pushed back 10 ft. and knocked prone.

Heh. I thought that was implied by giving her silver dragon heritage and Perform (dance).

explaining the joke:

Seriously - if you already got the joke, don't read this - it's just me laboriously explaining it.

Okay, so Priscilla's build is actually a very complex joke on my part based on the fact that Priscilla is A) one of the nicest people in the entire Dark Souls universe, B) is everyone's favorite waifu, and C) the fact that I, at least in part, subscribe to the "chastity belt" theory about the painted world.

To the first point, in theory, no one should ever fight Priscilla. She's harmless and just wants to be left alone. Thus technically these stats would never be needed - particularly since, if I was going to use her as a friendly NPC, I would use different (weaker) stats for her, allowing her to be helpful to the PCs without breaking the game over her finely sculpted knee. As such, I decided to have a bit of fun with them.

To the second and third points, I gave Priscilla Perform (dance). Perform (dance), when not otherwise obvious to a character's build, is my standard stand-in for a certain skill from a certain book that I wrote (see the Book of Passion kickstarter thread) in non-passion products.

On those same points, I also made Priscilla half silver-dragon. Why silver? Because, there's an old trope that silver dragons prefer humanoid mates to dragon mates. In a certain 2nd Ed setting, practically all of the silver dragon characters ended up romantically involved with humanoids while the other dragon characters mated with dragons. It almost felt like some weird author fetish. Thus, silver dragons became associated with dragon half-breeds more than other types of dragons. In the years since, this trope/association has somewhat faded, but I remember it and still think it's funny, so when building the ultimate half-dragon waifu character (who also happens to be silver/white in complexion), I had to go with silver dragon.

As to how that has to do with "cuddling her tail"... just let that phrase go to a dirty part of your mind and the joke explanation will be fully concluded.

Special Abilities
Excrete (Ex): One round after a creature is swallowed whole by a Chaos Eater, it is excreted out through one of the arm-tentacles in a gout of acid, falling prone in front of the creature. The Chaos Eater can expel a victim as an immediate action. The victim takes 5d6 acid damage and is spewed out in a square adjacent to the Chaos Eater. When being expelled, a creature can make a Reflex save (DC ?) to avoid becoming prone, in which case they land on their feet when expelled. This save does not reduce the damage, nor do abilities like evasion, since the damage occurs before the reflex save takes place.
Oddly Placed Mouth (Ex): The Chaos Eater cannot usefully attack with its oddly placed mouth, and thus lacks a bite attack. Instead, it treats its slam attack as a bite attack for the purposes of pinning and swallow whole. The damage caused by its mouth is calculated as part of its swallow whole damage.

No comments?

Also, any requests about what I work on next? I've been dabbling in both the Duke's Archives and the Catacombs, but neither are finished yet.


Just found this thread, this is amazing. Thinking about going and making maps with enemy placements for all of the game levels of goodness. I love me some souls. Phenomenal adaptation.

To answer your question:

so far, you've done:
1. Asylum, Undead burg to gargoyles, undead burg to 'too close' Capra demon, depths, blightown, Sen's fortress, Anor Londo.
2. Darkroot main entrance and side, back entrance and through door, best wuff. (mushroom parent needs buff IMO)
3. Painted world.
4. Izalath through to the end.

things we still need:
Undead asylum revisit
Catacombs all the way to tomb of Giants/Nito
Duke's archives all the way to crystal caves/Seath
The great hollow/ash lake.
valley of drakes and new Londo Ruins to 4 kings (12 kings lol)
Kiln of the first flame to Gwyn
DLC

Suggested order:

Technically Duke's archives to crystal cave/Seath is easier than Izalath, but since you've done that already, I'd do it next.

After, Catacombs to Nito next since it's theme blends into what comes after. (plus you're stuck with a TP to the lord vessel after 4 kings anyway)

Embrace the darkness with New Londo ruins with the detour to valley of drakes before back to new Londo ruins, ending with 4 kings.

Undead asylum revisit, which is Stay Demon and Black knights; doing it just before kiln of the first flame to use the same black knights. I think it fits better before duke's archives, but you'd have to update the black knight stat block.

Though it kind of ends the game, Kiln of the first flame and Gwyn. IMO the rest fits better after.

After Gwyn, do great hollow/ash lake.

Next is the DLC; (don't forget the giant gold golem) most of it is straightforward, but I would go to Artorias, then to Manus, then return up for Ciaran and finally Kalameet. Can't think of a better way to end then the black dragon.

Sorry if I went overboard, I am legitimately excited.

EDIT: I would put Gwendoline after Gwyn before Great Hollow/Ash lake.

Special Abilities
Blind (Ex): Seath is blind. However, a combination of long experience and magic has granted Seath the ability to detect opponents by echolocation instead, granting him blindsight 120 ft. However, this also makes him vulnerable to sonic attacks.
Cold Spells (Su): Seath can cast any spell with the fire descriptor as a cold spell instead, as if he had applied the Elemental Spell metamagic feat to that spell, but without raising the level of the spell. However, Seath cannot cast any fire spells - if he attempts to do so, the spell is automatically converted to ice.
Crystal Skin (Su): Seath's research into the Primordial Crystal was intended to grant him crystal scales. That proved to be impossible. However, Seath did manage to give himself crystal skin instead. Crystal Skin grants Seath DR 15/adamantium, acid immunity, and poison immunity. Crystal skin continues to work even if the Primordial Crystal is destroyed (see below).
Intercept bonfire (Su): Seath's magical research into the nature of undeath and immortality has allowed him to unlock the secrets of the bonfire. As such, when a creature with the dark sign is slain by Seath, he can redirect it from its planned bonfire to any other bonfire within 1 mile of Seath's current location. Seath usually uses this power to direct undead to the Archive Prison bonfire where he can experiment on them.
Over-sized Tail (Ex): Seath's tail is larger than normal for a dragon of his size. Treat his tail slap and tail sweep as if he were colossal size.
Primordial Crystal (Su): Seath possesses the Primordial Crystal, which he has transformed into a phylactery-like device that grants him immortality and regeneration 10/--. The Primordial Crystal has hardness 5 and 50 HP.
Stone Curse Breath (Su): Instead of a line of cold, Seath can breathe a cone of cursed crystals. This deals half the cold damage of his normal breath weapon, but any creature that takes damage from the attack must also make a Fortitude save (DC ?) or suffer the effects of a flesh to stone spell. A creature turned to stone is considered slain and returns to the bonfire - likely suffering from Seath's intercept bonfire ability.

Oh, and I nearly forgot. For those asking about Black Knights - I was planning to just use Silver Knights (since the sword/shield and halberd Black Knights are effectively identical move-wise (or would be in Pathfinder) to sword and spear Silver Knights). Just reequip and alter the related feats to adjust for Great Sword and Axe variants.

The summoned golems do not gain the "splintering" ability and instead gain blue flame whip, which they can use as a full-round action (move action to gather power, standard action to attack) dealing half the damage listed for Pinwheel.

Skills Climb +20, Perception +14
SQ nearsighted
Special Abilities
Nearsighted (Ex): A skeletal beast is nearsighted, unable to see creatures clearly that are farther than 30 ft. away from it. This reduces its darkvision range down to 30 ft. (rather than the usual 60 ft for being undead). A skeletal beast always fails visual Perception checks at a range beyond 30 ft, although is it capable of making other types of perception checks without difficulty (so, a target that flees beyond 30 ft can still be followed, but the skeletal beast must rely on its hearing to do so - at least until it closes the distance to less than 30 ft again).
Vicious Bite (Ex): A skeletal beast deals 1.5 times strength damage on a successful bite attack.

As Undead Raven Swarm (see SRD) except as follows:
Replace "Eye-Rake" with "Ankle Biters" (see below), Disease with Poison (see below), and the Fly skill with the Climb skill.
Furthermore, Baby Skeleton Swarms gain Immunity to acid and poison, as well as 10 resistance to electricity.
Ankle-Biters (Ex): Any creature damaged by a baby skeleton swarm must succeed on a DC 18 reflex save or be tripped as the tiny skeletons grab on to their ankles. The creature can right itself as a move action
Baby Skeleton Poison (Ex): Any creature damaged by a baby skeleton swarm must succeed on a DC 18 fort save or be poisoned, taking 1d2 Con damage for 6 rounds (1 save negates).

Gear mwk huge greatsword
Special Abilities
Armor of Bones (Su): Nito is covered in bone armor, similar to the Oracle of Bones ability of the same name, except that Nito gains this armor constantly (and can choose to dismiss or reacquire it as a free action).
Gravelord Sword Dance (Su): Gravelord Nito can use his greatsword as a ranged attack by plunging it into the ground. He may target any single creature within 60 ft. with this ability, even if he does not have line of sight by using spiritsense. Because this attack is considered ranged, Nito cannot use Power Attack or any related feats with it, although he still applies 1.5 times his strength modifier for using his sword two-handed.
Many Hands (Su): Nito has four arms, allowing him to wield his greatsword two handed while also having a hand free to cast spells and a fourth hand free to make grab attacks.
Miasma of Death (Su): This ability functions like a breath weapon that deals negative energy damage, except that creatures that take damage from this ability are also subject to a Fort save (DC 26) to resist becoming poisoned. Creatures that are poisoned take 1d4 con per round for 6 rounds (2 saves to end).

things we still need:

Duke's archives all the way to crystal caves/Seath
The great hollow/ash lake.
valley of drakes and new Londo Ruins to 4 kings (12 kings lol)
Kiln of the first flame to Gwyn
DLC

Duke's Archives - done.

Catacombs/Tomb of Giants - Done.

Asylum revisit: It's just hollows (done), Black Knights (see Silver Knights), and an improved Asylum Demon (see Demon Firesage). So yeah, that's pretty much everything there already done.

Great Hollow/Ash Lake: done basilisks, giant crabs, mushroom parents, and the hydra already, so again, those are all already done.

Valley of the Drakes - already did the undead dragon (Painted World), but I do need to do the Blue Drakes. Hmm... a Sea Drake with a few extra HD might do the trick for those.

So yeah, that leaves:

New Londo Ruins (which I will do for completeness sake even though I'm 99.9% sure my game is not going to be going there).

Oolacile (which I have been looking forward to doing).

A few unique named enemies (Havel and Gwyndoline mostly).

And Gwyn (since the only thing in the Kiln apart from him are the Black Knights, which as previously established can be made by refluffing Silver Knights).

Well, and technically some NPCs like Lautrec and Patches. And the Forest Hunters.
