Male Half-Orc Bard 1

Emboldened by the lizard blood spattered over his tunic, Garruk removes his axe and moves into the cloud of mist, hoping to cut the halfling into small chunks. Well, smaller chunks, anyway.

Garruk will walk 30 feet forward into the mist. If he sees the halfling once he gets inside, he'll take a swing at him. Otherwise, he'll use his standard action to ready an action to strike at the halfling if he ever comes within 5 feet of Garruk's postion.

Attack & Damage: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (3) + 3 = 61d12 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9

Dear warriors of the party: Garruk would like to know why the Bard is leading the charge here? Sincerely, Garruk. ;)

Zafri: Charging allows you to move double your speed in a straight line and make an attack with a +2 bonus, but you suffer a -2 to AC until your next turn.

Liss: Spellcraft in case Magey McGee here casts more spells: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (17) + 5 = 22

... Yawn to say the least, though I admit this is not really the DM's fault if that is how the module is written...

I completely disagree here. It is up to your DM to make the game feel dynamic, even during an Adventure Path. If your character wanted to investigate the sunken ship, you should have been allowed to, even if that scene is not ready for the module yet.

Remember that the writers of the module only have about 40 or so pages to work with and D&D being what it is, they can't throw in every single eventuality that could possibly occur; this is why we have living, breathing DMs to adjudicate our games, after all.

This is going to be an unpopular opinion, but half of Night of the Living Dead '90. Some things were better in the original, some things were better in the remake. It evened out for me.

For example: The impact of the original's final scene couldn't be beaten, but the remake's Barbara was superior in every way.

Also, the way it played with the audience's expectations near the beginning was great. And that crazy guy who called everyone a "bunch of yo-yos"? Priceless.

I'm willing to raise you. I will wager extreme unpopularity by throwing the Dawn of the Dead remake in there. It did a good job of modernizing the story while keeping very true to the original, and damn those actions scenes were awesome. Also, a friend of mine played a zombie in that movie, so that was also cool.

OOO, a new classification. I wonder what B is for?


Anyway, this sounds like a classic hook for a 1st level adventure, can't wait to see the final result!

I've always said it so that it rhymes with 'cow'.

I really wanted to say that it should rhyme with 'row' but that joke's been done already.
