He Must Die—Again!

Thursday, August 27, 2015

The arrival of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Occult Adventures with its host of psychic magic and class options means new ways to tell stories for the world of Golarion (and beyond). But what about some of our older adventures, particularly one about a Very Infamous Monk? Are you ready for a Design Challenge?

When Occult Adventures first made its way through playtesting, one question I often thought was, "How could our older adventures be retold with these new options?" Being a rather large fan of Russian fairy tales and folk lore, I am quite fond of the Reign of Winter Adventure Path, so of course, I immediately gravitated towards that one to pick for this Design Challenge.

What does this mean to you? It means I have thrown the gauntlet to everybody who loves creating stat blocks, whether you're they type who spends hours poring over new archetypes, class combinations, and gear selection, or just like putting together a fun NPC for your group to face. "Pray tell, Liz, what is the rules of this duel?" you might ask.

You get to make this guy, Grigori Rasputin, but this time, using one of the new character classes from Occult Adventures.


Grigori Rasputin returns—but as what? You get to decide!

For reference, here's his original stat block, as it appeared in "Rasputin Must Die!":

TACTICS

Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6), Rasputin enjoys the benefits of the World Engine’s unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. When faced with combat, Rasputin activates his ectoplasmic armor revelation and casts entropic shield, freedom of movement, levitate, moment of prescience, and true seeing. Once enemies are in sight, he casts antilife shell and spectral hand to enable him to use touch attacks beyond the field’s perimeter.
During Combat Under the protection of his antilife shell, Rasputin attempts to hinder opponents with reverse gravity and waves of ecstasy and turn foes against each other with terrible remorse and murderous command, before laying waste with such deadly effects as blade barrier, blasphemy, destruction, harm, stormbolts, and unholy blight. If wounded, Rasputin casts quickened cure spells while continuing to target enemies with offensive spells.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Stitched Soul (Su) Rasputin’s soul is stitched to his body with threads of fate, and he clings tenaciously to life. He gains Diehard as a bonus feat. In addition, when first reduced to a number of negative hit points equal to or greater than his current Con score, Rasputin dies, but he springs back to life 1d4 rounds later as if the target of a resurrection spell. If killed a second time, the Mad Monk again comes back to life 1d6 rounds later, as if the target of a raise dead spell (upon his return, he loses 50% of his remaining unused spell slots as if they had been used to cast spells). Only after Rasputin is slain for a third time do his soul’s stitches finally unravel from his corpse, releasing his malignant spirit into the ether.

Your entry will be judged on presentation and adherence to theme, and to help me with that, I've brought in the man responsible not only for the original Pathfinder version of the Mad Monk, but was also one of the lead consultants on Occult Adventures as well: Brandon Hodge!

Fantastic idea! Looking forward to seeing all of the cool ideas.


I'm surprised no "occultist"(or even partial occultist) builds have appeared yet... I mean he is using rare items that could be used as implements.

No—the classes must be from Occult Adventures.

Wait....wouldn't the old Dragon Magazines for 3.5 technically count as "Paizo published material" in this regard?

As much as I want to say yes, I'm going to have to go with "no"—we don't own the IP on that and we can't reproduce any of the content legally.

The original version of Rasputin had his own unique Oracle mystery. Can our version have its own unique archetype/other sort of Occult modification?

No new mechanics—statblock only!

As far as point buy goes, follow Brandon's lead here.

My favorite part of this blog post: "Paizo time"

The longer I've worked here, the more I'm convinced that the Paizo offices are caught in a Maelstrom-fueled eddy where time flows differently. Sadly, it often works against us, rather than for us.

I'm still trying to get the proteans to understand that.

There are ways, and ways, to accommodate this... One just needs to be tricksy! (Which is why it will take me a while to submit an answer, despite preferring to be 'first' in category however I decide to proceed. So many choices!)

I will also note the timing of this contest with RPGSS getting exciting... arggg! :)

Yes, but doing so and staying in budget is hard :-P Bracers of Armor are expensive (I say Bracers of Armor cause he already has a +4 Amulet of Natural Armor and a +4 deflection bonus from the Unholy Aura). Currently trying to make ends meet with Mage Armor and Shield.


One has not to have the armor on all the time... Only in the right rounds... Or maybe some magic item can be added or modified ad hoc.

Psychic or Spiritualist? One's easier and straight, the other is bizàrre and fascinating...

Ahh, decisions, decisions...
I don't plan to enter, but I can't see how he could possibly not be a Mesmerist. :D

Mesmerist seems the first choice (Cult Master in particular), but since have already been posted 2 Mesmerist builds, I'm thinking to do something different.

Plus, Mesmerists can't cast his higly destructive spells and play with ectoplasm...

I don't know if this will play into the contest judging or not, but I don't think his encounter is well suited to a mesmerist either.

It's absolutely well-suited to a mesmerist, if you build him correctly...

(continues working on the awesome mesmerist build over here)

I'm in the same boat. As soon as Paizo announced it on their Twitter, I went "Pfft. Challenge accepted." I'm starting to regret that.

Silver Crusade

Yeah, the lack of ectoplasmic armor really hurts. When I redid him for my game, it already been taken into account using Automatic Bonus Progression (at +2 character level). I had completely forgotten about it when I converted my build over for this, and thus didn't take that into consideration, forcing me to go back and remove the armor bonus.

I'm actually more proud of my version of the black monk's cassock that I came up with for this challenge. For months, I'd been struggling with this very item, but last night it just hit me like a ton of bricks how I should do it. Magic item creation is usually not something I'm good at, but I think this time it came out okay.

I think everyone's getting too hung up on keeping the encounter largely the same with a different class.

A different class is, naturally, going to lend itself to a very different sort of playstyle.

His Tactics section is very much going to change.

Exactly. Different classes require a different approach to a situation. :)

True. But when I first read the challenge, TWO ideas came to mind almost at the some time. So, if I'm not doing a Mesmerist, I'm doing the other thing. And o boy it fits almost perfectly.
After all, a psychic caster must not worry about arcane spell failure, does he? ^_^

Silver Crusade

I agree, Rynjin, in that a different class lends a different playstyle. For my part, the build for my game has a vastly different feat selection that makes him more mobile and his tactics reflected that. Even the one I did for this contest has somewhat different tactics than the original (it has to, as my build doesn't have access to 7th level or higher spells).

But, and I stress this, that was for my game.

For this, I'm not trying to reflect my group's decidedly aggressive playstyle or trying to show the Paizo staff how to do a 'proper optimized build' (and before you get offended, I'm not saying that's what you're trying to do in either case). I'm just trying to pay homage to what was written for a friendly contest to get a unique avatar. It's all in good fun, man. :)


Interesting. I think Mesmer will fit best... perhaps there's something in the archetypes that could give it the right kick.

----- Tactics -----
Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6), Rasputin enjoys the benefit of the Wold Engine's unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. When faced with combat, Rasputin activates his bonded manifestation in ectoplasmic form and casts freedom of movement, levitate, and true seeing. Once enemies are in sight, he casts repulsion and spectral hand to enable him to use touch attacks beyond the fields perimeter.
During Combat Under the protection of his repulsion, Rasputin attempts to hinder opponents with touch of gracelessness and black tentacles and turn foes against each other with possession. In the event that possession fails, he lays waste to the enemies with ectoplasmic eruption, ectoplasmic snare, harm, incorporeal chains, mass pain strike, telekinetic maneuver, and wall of ectoplasm. If wounded, Rasputin casts quickened cure spells while continuing to target enemies with offensive spells. Should an enemy come into melee range with Rasputin, he assaults them with the ectoplasmic tendrils granted by his bonded manifestation.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

----- Special Abilities -----
Stitched Soul (Su) Rasputin’s soul is stitched to his body with threads of fate, and he clings tenaciously to life. He gains Diehard as a bonus feat. In addition, when first reduced to a number of negative hit points equal to or greater than his current Con score, Rasputin dies, but he springs back to life 1d4 rounds later as if the target of a resurrection spell. If killed a second time, the Mad Monk again comes back to life 1d6 rounds later, as if the target of a raise dead spell (upon his return, he loses 50% of his remaining unused spell slots as if they had been used to cast spells). Only after Rasputin is slain for a third time do his soul’s stitches finally unravel from his corpse, releasing his malignant spirit into the ether.

My Thoughts Behind My Choice:
At first I thought to make him a mesmerist (cult leader). But seeing as a good number of people thought to make him a mesmerist, I thought I'd take a different approach and make him a spiritualist.

Using the fractured mind archetype, he is still able to use Charisma as his main casting stat, and replaces useless (for him) class features for a number of handy spell-like abilities. He never seems to manifest his phantom; he only utilizes it through the bonded manifestation. Through bonded manifestation, he gets to keep a decent armor and shield bonus to his AC by using the ectoplasmic form, keeping his stats more in-line with his original stats.

Instead of keeping the (now) useless cassock of the black monk, I opted to give him a greater talisman of healing power to make it that much more of a challenge to kill him the first time.

I also decided to keep his spells as close to the original as I could get with a spiritualist. Repulsion instead of antilife shell, wall of ectoplasm instead of blade barrier, etc. His tactics are mostly the same as well.

He casts endure elements and moment of prescience at the start of every day. When faced with combat, he casts Extended acute senses, Extended see invisibility; named bullet on all seven of the bullets loaded in his revolver as well as resist energy and protection from energy in accordance with what information he has regarding the characters’ capabilities. Extended antilife shell, Extended mirror image, Extended shield and Extended thoughtsense are cast a minute or two before he anticipates their entry into H6. Additionally, Rasputin casts Extended deathless, Extended haste and Extended persistent vigor just prior to their entry into his sanctum. This leaves Rasputin with 4 8th level, 7 6th level, 5 5th level, 0 4th level, 6 3rd level, 8 2nd level and 8 1st spell slots, not counting however many spell slots he uses to cast protection from energy and resist energy. Additional spell slots will have been used in previous confrontations with his foes if they are able to press their assault into area H6 during the same day of game time.
During Combat Under the protection of his Extended antilife shell, Rasputin first attempts to hinder his foes with waves of exhaustion, mass inflict pain then greater forbid action (attack) before tearing into them with horrid wilting, psychic crush and ego whip. Foes that are looking quite a bit worse for the wear are targeted with explode head. Quickened dispel magic, live on and his revolver round out his combat tactics. Foes that demonstrate spell resistance he will use his relentless casting phrenic amplification to improve his chances of penetrating that defense. Based on his initial encounters with the characters determines when he uses overpowering mind or both overpowering mind and relentless casting by means of dual amplification to impede as many of his foes as he can with a single casting of greater forbid action or attempt to deliver a fatal blow with psychic crush. He will deplete his phrenic pool as rapidly as possible to crush the interlopers once they reach H6.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

----- Tactics -----
Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6), Rasputin enjoys the benefits of the World Engine’s unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. Rasputin is either channelling the archmage if alone, but the marshal if allies are amongst him. When faced with combat, Rasputin casts Displacement, Fly, Freedom of Movement, and Trueseeing.
During Combat During combat, the mad monk casts debuffing spells, and either buffs his allies or attempts to annihilate the opponents. If channelling the archmage, he places walls of ectoplasm and uses his supreme spirit power to casts either gate or time stop. When Rasputin first dies and comes back from the dead he likely changes to channel the heirophant, or regains some spent influence. Upon his second death, Rasputin will probably return channelling the guardian.

Reasoning:

Reanimated medium because of him being so mythically hard to kill, plus it lets him do amazing survival stuff at the same time as being an occult mage, and able to do acts of healing (through faith healing, spells granted by heirophant, and energy channelling). He gets immunity to things like death effects, and has abilities so that when he is revived from raise dead he only gains one negative level. He also can do things like see the future through understanding of the bible and sometimes have different mechanics based on if other people are Christian. Finally, I think it's interesting to have an opponent who changes mid-battle.

----- Tactics -----
Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6), Rasputin enjoys the benefits of the World Engine’s unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. Throughout this area and the World Engine (Area H7) he has also cast etheric shards. In the Transept (Area H5) he draws a binding circle targeting good creatures. When faced with combat, he activates his mind over gravity, spirit shroud and globe of negation focus powers as well as casts stoneskin, shield and protection from energy, if appropriate. Once enemies enter Akuvskaya Monastery he activates his servitor focus power to summon a shadow demon to aid the Brothers Three in the defense of the Transept (area H5). He casts unwilling target and repulsion before engaging enemies.
During Combat Rasputin begins combat by turning his enemies into allies with spells like dominate person and mass charm monster. He hinders enemies who resist him with bestow curse and his psychic curse focus power. Afterwards, he relies heavily on his energy ray and energy blast focus powers, as well as his evocations spells, shaping them as necessary with his shape mastery focus power to prevent damage to the surrounding machinery of the Thrice-Tenth Presbytery (Area H6) and the World Engine (Area H7). If at any time someone approaches the World Engine he casts aversion on them in order to protect it.
When fighting alone he activates his psychic fog focus power. After his stoneskin has been discharged, anytime Rasputin is damaged by a melee attack he activates his mind barrier focus power as an immediate action. He casts his melee touch spells only if he is out of ranged spells, and casts spectral hand before using them. When running low on mental focus and offensive spells he activates his legacy weapon focus power on his revolver.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

Mental Focus (Su) Rasputin can invest a portion of his mental focus into his chosen implements for the day, allowing him to utilize a variety of abilities depending on the implements and the amount of focus invested in them. The allocation of his mental focus within his implements for the day is as follows:
Ancient slavic obereg protection amulet Abjuration, mental focus 10, resonant power (warding talisman)

Stitched Soul (Su) Rasputin’s soul is stitched to his body with threads of fate, and he clings tenaciously to life. He gains Diehard as a bonus feat. In addition, when first reduced to a number of negative hit points equal to or greater than his current Con score, Rasputin dies, but he springs back to life 1d4 rounds later as if the target of a resurrection spell. If killed a second time, the Mad Monk again comes back to life 1d6 rounds later, as if the target of a raise dead spell (upon his return, he loses 50% of his remaining unused spell slots as if they had been used to cast spells). Only after Rasputin is slain for a third time do his soul’s stitches finally unravel from his corpse, releasing his malignant spirit into the ether.

How many. Good to see spiritualists and occultists too.
And TWO reanimated mediums up to now. Wow.
I'm busy making mine... I like it very much but I hope someone will try the two ideas I had to discard (Cult Master and Ectoplasmatist).

I completely sympathize. Think I spent ~50 minutes of the editing window fixing up my submission. Learned a good bit about "check it thrice" as a result. :)


Already the ideas I had when I first saw this contest I see virtually duplicated.

With so few classes/archtypes to choose from there's going to be a lot of people who have similar, if not identical, ways of building him.


Yeah, that's pretty much what I figured.

Same here. I'm trying to speed read through the AP so I'll have a better chance at this, but I can't afford all of them at once. I know you don't need to, but with so many done already I feel it'll give me a more accurate shot. Regardless, I may have to step down on my attempt. It's going to be too easy to replicate someone else's build.

----- Tactics -----

Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6), Rasputin enjoys the benefits of the World Engine's unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. When faced with combat, Rasputin casts entropic shield, freedom of movement, levitate, moment of prescience, and true seeing. Once enemies are in sight, he casts antilife shell and spectral hand to enable him to use touch attacks beyond the field's perimeter.
During Combat Under the protection of his antilife shell, Rasputin attempts to hinder opponents with reverse gravity and waves of ecstasy and turn foes against each other with paranoia, before laying waste with such deadly effects as blade barrier, psychic crush IV, finger of death and mind thrust VI.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

----- Special Abilities -----

Detect Thought (Sp At 2nd level, a psychic can use detect thoughts as a spell-like ability once per day. She can also expend any unused spell slot of 1st level of higher to cast detect thoughts. If she does so, she uses the level of the spell slot expended to determine the Will save DC.

Stitched Soul (Su) Rasputin's soul is stitched to his body with threads of fate, and he clings tenaciously to life. He gains Diehard as a bonus feat. In addition, when first reduced to a number of negative hit points equal to or greater than his current Con score, Rasputin dies, but he springs back to life 1d4 rounds later as if the target of a resurrection spell. If killed a second time, the Mad Monk again comes back to life 1d6 rounds later, as if the target of a raise dead spell (upon his return, he loses 50% of his remaining unused spell slots as if they had been used to cast spells). Only after Rasputin is slain for a third time do his soul's stitches finally unravel from his corpse, releasing his malignant spirit into the ether.

Telepathic Bond (Sp) At 9th level, a psychic can use telepathic bond as a spell-like ability once per day, using her psychic level as her caster level. She can't leave herself out of a bond created in this way. She can also expend any unused spell slot of 4th level or higher to cast telepathic bond. Casting the spell using a higher-level spell slot gives no benefit on its own, but the psychic can apply metamagic feats that would increase the spell level to the appropriate level.

Thoughts on Creation:

When trying to figure out which class to pick, I was mainly drawn to the psychic. I could see how mesmerist would be good due to his historical description as a charismatic man and the mention of his stare, but I wanted to do something different. With psychic being an intelligence based class instead of charisma, I decided to swap around his mental stats from the original stat block to make intelligence the highest of the three mental stats followed by charisma and then wisdom. It still captures the charismatic man, but also shows that he is very smart. A good quality for a con man.

For his feats and spells, I tried to emulate his original feel as well as make sure all the important spells were still available that was utilized in the Adventure Path. I tended toward a lot of mind-affecting spells as well as some damage dealing spells that fit the manipulation of life theme (be it mental or physical). I had a hard decision between two Psychic Disciplines as I liked the feel of both Self-Perfection and Dream. I ultimately went with Dream as it fit the manipulation of others better. Though I was sad to lose akashic form as a bonus 9th level spell. It made me laugh to think that it would be 1 more time the PCs would have to kill him. That said, I made sure to give him wish as a 9th level spell due to Brandon Hodges mentioning that miracle can "work miracles" in regards to his higher Constitution score.

One of the things that Rasputin was known for was helping heal Alexei. With him not being an oracle and no longer having access to healing magic, I decided to give him full ranks in heal and utilize the spell unlock faith healing. I also gave him craft alchemy along with sleight of hand in order to manipulate any "illness" Alexei may or may not have had.

For Rasputin's equipment, I wanted to keep it similar to what he had in his original stat block but needed to replace the cassock as it was not beneficial to him now that he was no longer an oracle. With the loss of the ectoplasmic armor, I decided to go with bracers of armor +8 and a lower version of the amulet of natural armor. I kept in mind that magic items would be very difficult to obtain considering magic on earth is quite a bit rare (to perhaps non-existent depending on who you ask). While all the magic items were wondrous items (which fit with his craft wondrous item feat), he did not have all the necessary spells - in particular barkskin. With a high Use Magic Device skill, and the assistance of some of his contacts, I figured he obtained the necessary scrolls to make his own magic items that he currently has on him.


Does he have some diamonds in order to use wish? otherwise the only other way to use his 9-level slots as a psychic is spamming microcosm that is overwhelming


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I mainly had wish for the reason stated in the creation comment. If someone wanted to focus his 3 castings on microcosm they could or use the slots to use metamagic on an 8th level spell.

I read that you gave him Wish as an equivalent to Miracle and this is ok, but Miracle in its lesser effects (replicating spells mainly) doesn't have a material component, while with Wish you have to shell out a 25000 GP diamond anyways, so I was saying that in order to use Wish at all the material might be needed to be included in its gear.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

That is a good point. In this case, I went with him having used it for his higher Con (which is why he doesn't have the component anymore. It takes time to gather that much diamond again :)). The limited budget kept me from having it available for the combat but felt it worked as a good flavor spell.


Can't psychic spellcasters substitute items of personal value for expensive material components?


Quick question... If I use An Occult Adventures class that qualifies for a non OA prestige class, can I use that prestige class?

This is Rasputin the Mesmerist. He's as close on the original as I could make him, but completely different in focus, and is probably the most annoying if not deadly opponent a party can ever face. His weakness, of course, is if somehow the party were immune to mind affecting spells, but if they aren't, they are in for a LONG fight.

Given what Rasputin was in real life, this version of him seems to be the closest to "real world" him in scope of what he was famous for doing - playing his enemies against each other, deflecting blame, and charming new allies.

He's completely from the core books and the adventure itself - no sourcebooks needed!

----- Tactics -----
Before Combat When facing combat, Rasputin casts True Seeing on himself and Mind Fog across area H6 in preparation for the players' arrival. He uses his Faked Death trick on himself as a safeguard.
During Combat When the party enters area H6 (and the Mind Fog), Rasputin begins by casting Overwhelming Presence. Should any of the party make their saves, he follows up with Mass Hold Person or Dominate Person, depending on how many made it. Once the party is incapacitated, he will proceed to use his Painful Stare ability with his Bleeding Stare and Intense Pain feat, and make a Coup de Grace attack (4d8+9d6, plus 6 bleed damage) with his revolver on the helpless party member that looks weakest. He will continue to do so until the target is dead, and move onto the next weakest character until someone makes their save to resist his initial charms. Once the party is back in play, he will use spells that target specific characters to either eliminate them as threats or make them turn on their friends (Power Word: Blind on a spellcaster, Dominate Person on a fighter, etc.) When low on hit points, he will use his Faked Death trick and attempt to use his wand to heal and set himself up for more of of the same.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

----- TACTICS -----
Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6, Rasputin enjoys the benefits of the World Engine's unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. Rasputin casts overland flight and lesser age resistance upon waking up, fills the area between H5 and H6 with etheric shards, and casts apport object on his scimitar. When combat starts on area H3, Rasputin casts freedom of movement, stoneskin**, anticipate peril***, shield, lead blades***, and resist energy and/or energy shield depending on what kind of energy attacks the party has used while he has monitored them via project image or greater scrying. After combat on the other side of the pews ends, Rasputin orders the Brothers Three to attack, activates his globe of negation and casts spell resistance, true seeing, and weapon of awe, and activates aegis (switching one +1 to defiant versus the most aggressive or numerous race present). If the Brothers are dropping too fast, Rasputin either casts a wall of force to hinder enemies or uses shadow beast to keep the intruders busy.
During Combat Initially Rasputin remains within his globe of negation and hinders his enemies with wandering star motes, greater forbid action, hold monster, slow, vision of Hell (followed later by scimitar attacks with weapon of awe on it), binding pattern, or murderous command. If targets turn out to be resistant to initial mental attacks, he switches to chain lightning, enemy hammer and parchment swarm. Once he has sufficiently disrupted them or runs out of spell slots or the enemy closes in, he activates size alteration and quickness, uses legacy weapon with bane or an elemental damage improvement, and wades in with his scimitar, focusing on one target and using twilight knife to flank. Debilitating effects and wounds are negated with dispel magic, cure serious wounds or heal, but after his initial preparations Rasputin prefers to stay on the offense. If disarmed, he recalls his scimitar by apport object. If an enemy seems to wield a dangerous object or weapon, he uses pilfering hand to acquire it. Rasputin uses mind barrier, danger sight, and energy shield to block attacks as immediate or swift actions to frustrate his enemies and to buy time to finish his preparations, and bracelet of second chances to soften the blows that inevitably will get through.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother's mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

The interesting thing was that he had to be self-sufficient with his magic items, so everything needed to be craftable with just one feat.

This may not be RAW, but they are easily removed if they are not.
As far as I can tell, Expanded Arcana should work for Occultist. My guess is the spells are tied to existing implements. If this turns out not to be legal, discard the extra spells and DR, and switch the feat to Spell Focus (Enchantment).
Granite/diamond dust is for stoneskin, eye oinment for true seeing, and the teeny-weeny Rasputin dolls (which look like bristle-bearded hobgoblins and are probably not cute) are for project image.


Why:

Rasputin is described as charismatic, and this guy has Cha 12. Wryyyy? Because at Cha 12 he is still more likable than the avarage muzhik, and every story grows when it is told repeatedly. After a few years in court, everyone says ”he must be very charismatic to be allowed here, because there is no way some dirty farmer is allowed to just hover around the tsarina unless there is something special about him”. No noble wants to admit a wild-bearded hobgoblin has gotten close to the rulers by being clever, but rustic charm is acceptable.

Of course, this Rasputin is smart. He plays a fool to most people he meets (Bluff), spouts wisdom (Religion, Nobility), and if somebody questions his presence, stares at them until they go away (Intimidate). If they come back later with a friend, it's time for forced alliance, binding pattern, and stabbing. This Rasputin is also paranoid. He has multiple layered defenses which take time to activate, so he will count on henchmen or surprise to buy him time to do that. If he fails, he either retreats by dimension door or unleashes a shadow beast or a servitor. (Note that teleportation and conjuration effects do not work in the battle location, so he has left the conjuration pool empty.)

A favored tactic in the past was to use masquerade on a valet, use suggestion to send him away, and get close to a target. Then threaten, bribe, kill, or lie until he got what he wanted. Rasputin only drops masquerade if he really wants to make an impression, which is usually terminal to the target. Usually the valet returns only to find out he is now considered a murderer or a blackmailer, which is usually terminal to the valet. Rasputin does not care.

This Rasputin starts with abjuration and enchantment implements. Neither the crucifix or the censer are Rasputin's own. His envy and greed made him steal them from a higher-ranking priest, and these emotions along with his birthright opened his occult potential. The divination implement is a small spyglass stolen from a retired naval officer. Just as it expands and enhances regular vision, Rasputin found out that he could metaphysically allow it to extend his own senses. At this point, his methods were set, but not every theft resulted in useful implements. He made enemies. While he could kill some, others were too powerful, so he needed allies. As a muzhik, the only way to get allies powerful enough was to insinuate himself into noble ranks, which turned out to be easy for a smart man.

Rasputin's illusion implement is a wedding ring with small diamonds, stolen from the cold hand of the lesser noblewoman who functioned as a steppingstone into higher nobility. His transmutation implement is a dagger of a decorated Cossack captain who tried to stand against the mad monk and paid with his life. This is also where he got his scimitar and breastplate, which are worn only out of town, with the breastplate hidden under a cassock.. Rasputin's conjuration implement is the only tool that was not born out of murder, greed, or envy. While he could never tell anyone Anastasia was his daughter, something in her first doll resonated with the final remnants of a decent man. As a result, Rasputin's conjuration spells are mostly beneficial. This did not last. His thirst for power made him find his final implement in the torture chambers under St. Petersburgh, where his repeated use of a branding iron formed a mystical link to it.

Some of the spell choices are suboptimal. Enemy hammer could be replaced with disintegrate, and twilight knife is not the most powerful spell available. They are intended to be somewhat thematical, and I find angry telekinetic Rasputin more in character than poof-you're-gone Rasputin. He is paranoid and smart, but he is also intensely proud, and sees everyone else as stupid blind fools. He may sometimes recognize a threat intellectually, but believes that anyone who is not fazed by his occult abilities is a doddering intellectual who deserves to be cut down by scimitar in an bloody spectacle for now bowing down to his betters.

Rasputin has no respect for anyone, and the only person who can expect mercy from him is Anastasia. Even his half-sister is nothing more than an additional steppingstone. And now that he has climbed all the way to the top and kicked his mother off her throne, he will not stand aside and walk down.


The original stat block seems to use both the +1 hp and the +1 spell/level favored class bonus.

The spells per level line up, but there are a lot of other discrepancies in the original character. I can't figure out where 8 of his his HP, or the +4 insight bonus to AC are coming from, for example. He's also got 26 points of ability score adds, far above the normal Heroic NPC numbers or even the PCs. He was very frustrating to try to RE and rebuild, and I ended up just keeping the ability scores and trying to get as close as I could on the rest.

The insight bonus and bonus hp are likely both the result of the area he's encountered in (see the "Before Combat" section in the stat block above).


Tre insight bonus comes from the area, but the 18 extra hp don't, I think.

Right you are about the AC, I missed that in the area description. I can't find any reference to the extra HPs, though, except in the stat block itself. I am wondering if maybe an effect was removed for balance purposes and the character never got adjusted.

I also realized I forgot to apply the middle age mods, and after shifting the initial +2 from CHA to CON as a result was able to get him down to 20 points. It's all starting to make a little more sense.

I've made some corrections to my above character by following all of the rules (something the published version apparently doesn't do, or at least leaves out some details on). It also adds in some details I left off of the original. This one matches the published version in every possible way.

----- Tactics -----
Before Combat Within the Thrice-Tenth presbytery (area H6), Rasputin enjoys the benefits of the World Engine’s unholy aura and insight bonus to his AC. When facing combat, Rasputin casts True Seeing on himself and Mind Fog across area H6 in preparation for the players' arrival. He uses his Faked Death trick on himself as a safeguard
During Combat When the party enters area H6 (and the Mind Fog), Rasputin begins by casting Overwhelming Presence. Should any of the party make their saves, he follows up with Mass Hold Person or Dominate Person, depending on how many made it. Once the party is incapacitated, he will proceed to use his Painful Stare ability with his Bleeding Stare and Intense Pain feat, and make a Coup de Grace attack (4d8+9d6, plus 6 bleed damage) with his revolver on the helpless party member that looks most likely to resist him or interfere with his abilities. He will continue to do so until the target is dead, and move onto the next character until someone makes their save to resist his initial charms. Once the party is back in play, he will use spells that target specific characters to either eliminate them as threats or make them turn on their friends (Power Word: Blind on a spellcaster, Dominate Person on a fighter, etc.) When low on hit points, he will use his Faked Death trick and attempt to use his wand to heal and set himself up for more of of the same.
Morale On the precipice of claiming his mother’s mythic power, Rasputin relies on his stitched soul to preserve his life, and fights to the death again and again until slain permanently.

----- Special Abilities -----
Stitched Soul(Su) Rasputin’s soul is stitched to his body with threads of fate, and he clings tenaciously to life. He gains Diehard as a bonus feat.
