Advice and Rules Questions

Sovereign Court

Mostly curious if some of you came up with some systems or ideas to add disciplines, stances, maneuvers etc...to monsters/npcs.

I'm currently thinking of translating Naityan Rakshasha (tome of battle monster) to PoW.

hmm... While I haven't specifically done all to much with PoW for monsters, I have used it for a bunch of villainous and helper (humanoid shaped) NPCs.
That said, I can certainly imagine some intriguing monster ideas drawing from the various maneuvers. heading to dinner, followed up by a pathfinder session, so I'll have to elaborate later.

Sovereign Court

I'll be curious to see that later if you have the time.

I think this falls under Air0r's 'humanoid shaped NPCs' umbrella but here be POW'd Giants. And I have allowed an awakened big cat ally of the PCs use of the stance that allows it to count as a size or two larger whose name escapes me at the moment.

Teleporting cloud giants really caused a stir amongst my players...

Sovereign Court

This look pretty neat actually.

So, I know it isn't official yet, but the martial discipline that is in DSP's werewolf playtest would be perfect for an alternate mimic. I'd likely expand on the Mimics transformation abilities while I'm at it, so it can take a bunch of forms, like doors and tables, and switch it's form on the fly.
That martial discipline would be most fitting, because (if I recall) you would temporarily shapeshift parts of yourself to gain the natural attacks necessary to perform the various maneuvers.

easier idea: altering elementals to have have some Solar Wind abilities.

Sovereign Court

I'll have to check it out don't think that I read this playtest yet.

Path of War NPC book would be most welcome.

I guess it would be Path of War Embodied in the tradition of Dreamscarred's previous NPC book for psionics.

I've been tossing around some ideas for monsters, and a few came to mind.
Example: A mentally warped and physically twisted humanoid who uses cursed Razor maneuvers and is under the constant effect of the 'touch of the witch' stance.
