Female LE devil-spawn tiefling cleric of Asmodeus 5 || hp 32/41|| AC 21, touch 11, flatfooted 20 || Perception +11, Sense Motive +18 || Fort +5, Ref +2, Will +9 || CMB +4, CMD 15 || Init +1 || Affyria appearance || Guard disguise

In the process of moving this along a bit:

Affyria uses her charms and wiles to try and find out from the farmers where Captain Varning and his men usually camp. She'll then look for some stables where they can procure some horses and some camping supplies.

Diplomacy: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (18) + 10 = 28

Affyria curses, then moves to the coffin where the sound emanated from, and gets ready to mace whatever comes out of it...

"Asmodeus' balls!"

A faint smile plays around Affyria's lips as she pushes open the door and gets a faraway look in her eyes. "Big doors swing on little hinges."

Affyria throws open the door with a grand gesture.

"Proffer yourselves before us, that you may live through this bloodsoaked night!"

Probably my favorite game of the '90s.

Your dungeon floor is lumpy, order your minions to jump up and down!

I was just checking this thread, and apparantly got an email this morning that my submission made it in as well. Exciting, my first ever!

I'll second Ryan Costello's idea (how aasimars and/or tieflings view normal races), the Darklands requests, and also, Hellknights and something set in Galt (not sure if any of these have been done before, as I haven't read all of them yet).

This is one of the reasons why I love Paizo; every single person who works there cares about what they do and shares our passions and this hobby of ours.

I once ordered a boardgame from a local online store, and when it arrived it was simply wrapped with brown wrapping paper—no box, not even some bubblewrap. Suffice to say that was the last time I ordered anything from that place.

I've bought a complete case deal of both the Heroes & Monsters and the Rise of the Runelords set, and they both made the trip overseas to Europe. They both came with only one mini off their base (Seelah in H&M and a forgefiend in RotRL), so unstuck feet haven't really been a big problem for me. I also like the bright colors, as I feel some of the DDM miniatures are sometimes a bit too dark colored.

The H&M set also used a much harder, more brittle plastic, whereas the plastic of the RotRL set is a bit more maleable. Frankly, I much prefer the way these are manufactured, since it means their bases always sit perfectly. The floppy bases you mentioned I found quite annoying at times, it made them look really cheap.

Kitsune Barbarian attempted to eat her. Basically she slumber hexed the fighter, Wizard cast sleep on her, she went sleepy time. Barbarian picked her up and rage chewed on her.

Sleep shouldn't have worked on Erylium, since she has 6HD and sleep only affects 4HD worth of creatures.

I think one of my minis was broken.

While breaking the boxes down I found this

Check your Ameiko figure(s), I'm pretty sure that's her scabard.

The fleshy tone of the pants stood out to me as well. I assumed I had gotten a defective paint job, until I saw that they're all the same, and also match the art depicted in the bestiary and the Rise of the Runelord volumes.

So I slapped some paint on mine: Rune Giant repaint

The color I used is GW's Scorched Brown, which nearly matches the brown tones in their boots and kneepads perfectly.

My players are about to enter the Catacombs of Wrath, and so I've cobbled together a miniature for Koruvus.

I used a goblin warrior from the Heroes & Monsters set, chopped of his left arm and reglued it, coming out of his back. I then sculpted an axe using some green stuff, and added a third arm with a dagger, scavenged from an old boardgame mini.

Is there a rule or formula to upgrade damage dice?

For instance, utilizing table 6-5 in the Core, I can see the damage for a longsword progresses at follows:

Tiny - 1d4
Small - 1d6
Medium - 1d8
Large - 2d6

And from looking at the Rune Giant statblock, I can deduce that a Gargantuan longsword does 4d6, which probably means that a huge longsword does 3d6 damage.

So is it as simple as just adding a dice on top of the damage for a Large weapon when dealing with larger weapons?

I recently created an updated version of Keeper Hyve from the Carrion Hill module, changing him into an alchemist/rogue. Originally he's a level 7 rogue with a strong emphasis on poison, and his tactics even have him throwing poison vials as grenades, so I thought flavor wise he'd make more sense with a few alchemist levels.

Let me know what you think if anyone's familiar with the original module.

TACTICS
Before Combat If Hyve hears the PCs coming before they spot him, he gathers up his violet venom and drinks his dexterity mutagen. This change is already reflected in his statblock. He then hides behind the central pillar in the pool of shallow water, hoping to to ambush the PCs.
During Combat Hyve opens combat with a ranged sneak attack after applying his concentrated violet venom to a bolt, then resorts to throwing his acid bombs. If engaged in melee, he uses his second dose of violet venom to maximize his sneak attacks with his rapier.
Morale Keeper Hyve fights until brought below 15 hit points, at which point he attempts to escape by leaping into the sluice (area C3) and sliding down to area C4. If he survives the journey, he hides in area C4 and prepares another sneak attack with his ranged weapon. If cornered here, he'll fight to the death.

My players are gonna roll up some new characters tonight to play through the Carrion Hill module, and I'm planning on asking each player 2 questions about their character. I'm looking for some suggestions on good questions to ask.

Here's the ones I have so far:

-How did you end up in Carrion Hill? (this question will be the same for each player)

-Why don't you trust ...? (probably will complete this with a race after I see what character each player creates)

-Why did you have to flee your home country?

-Why did you join the church of ...? (this question will be given to the character for which the deity is the most important, like a cleric or paladin possibly)

-What is the most dangerous situation you've ever found yourself in?

These questions should work to immediately provide the players with some interesting background about their character. Any other suggestions for questions, since I need at least one more?

Will items have a reference to what book they originally appeared in?
