Hey! My name is easy to pronounce. It's all phonetic like.

“Chawn Khoche” - sounds fishy... hey, you wanna muscle in on some prime bridge territory? I know a guy...

Hey, anybody seen a mob boss with an unpronounceable name?

I got a scam I wanna run (on him)...

Sigh. This always happens. Time to slink outta town, I guess. Good thing I know a guy...

What are some instances of the lowest levels you can create undead at?

I know as a cleric with the Undead Lord archetype, you can create a corpse companion at first level, but if one wanted to raise a troop of zombies or skeletons to attack an isolated village, what level/circumstances would be necessary to put those plans into motion?

Now, first off, ta be clear, I'm not - and I repeat not - suggesting you... break any laws, ya hear me?

That said... hypothetically... for your... friend... by blatantly ignoring the WBL/TPE guidelines, you could grab a wand of animate dead for 11,250+(50 x onyx cost) gold and hypothetically have up to fifty undead at first level (presupposing you knew the command word), though only 20HD - that's less than ten - of the creatures could be automatically controlled by the wand.

Hypothetically, there's command undead, but that requires either another wand (at 4.5k more gold) or even more expensive item.

'Course, if ya- er... friend, your friend, yes - happened to be a wizard or sorcerer or the like and find someone else's undead all nice an' animated already for ya him-or-her, there shouldn't be anything stopping you said friend from gettin' that wand o' command undead (or casting it yourself themselves, if they have it), ya dig?

EDITExtra: oh, an' as a free bonus - no charge, it's just 'extra' - there's slightly less than optimal items with minor drawbacks that can make things less expensive. Minor things like makin' it 20 degrees cooler nearby, or makin' his hair grow faster, or forcin' a guy to know as much knowledge (arcana) or (undead religion) as he possibly can, or makin' him eat twice as much, sleep twice as much, rename himself "Susan" an' spontaneously turn into a young curly blonde haired girl child with wide innocent eyes, or involuntary alignment changes, or becoming obsessive or paranoid about said item, or needin' to be a spellcaster (or non-spellcaster), or whatnot... you know... minor things...

Now, of course... this is all strictly hypothetical. We're all just... helping friends, here. And if that's what you want to do... help a friend... then - strictly hypothetically, of course... I know a guy...

Plus, goodness is naturally held up to high standards.

And there's the kicker, for me, right there. If a good guy does some evil stuff, even if he's doing it 'for the greater good' or whatever, he can still fall. If an evil guy saves a bunch of children, or whatever, just because he gets a wild urge to do so, he isn't likely to be kicked off Team Evil. Evil's got lower standards, and it's so much harder to 'fall' from 'doing whatever the hell I want to anyway.' (Which makes evil PCs in most APs super easy, since evil people are backstabbing each other all the time anyway, so if the AP is all about Rovagug worshipping gnolls and stuff, then a team of Aspis Consortium competitors, or Hellknights, or Pactmaster-hired mercenaries could fit in as easily as a team of LG Rovagug haters.)

The mechanics are actually on Team Evil's side. The longer a person lives, the more likely they are to lose whatever innocent state of grace they started with, and do morally questionable things, and get dirtied up by the world and life's vicissitudes. It's totally a win for Team Evil if a demon saves a bunch of children, because, as children, they were more likely to go to the Upper Planes than they will be as adults. The fiend has just given the world that many more chances to corrupt and jade them into the sorts of souls that will go to a more southerly plane.

"You just saved those mortal children from burning up! That's a good act!"

"You are thinking like a mortal. I've just given them many more years to figure out that the world isn't fair, and that if they want anything in this life, they are going to have to *take* it. And if they make it to old age, and feel their memories slipping and their bones creaking, and grow so desperate to avoid the inevitable that they are willing to make a deal? I know a guy..."

Hey, now. Best not be hornin' in on another's business, yeah? Yeah.

So now I shall be asking - politely - that you refrain from overstepping your bounds, and must further ask that you leave all such brokerages to me.

If not? Well... I know a guy...

Ugh, those things are disgusting.

Why don't you like red dresses?

The "thing", by the way, was a gutdragger lurcher. Really disgusting, indead. They attack with their own eviscerated entrails, trying to choke you with them and with their content. Yucks.

My players did well on all thethe mmodule but they wanted to experience some really threatening stuff and check if the module was really a killer. It is. The ability damage is high at all moments so they end getting to the last fights seriously debilitated.

My youngest player really loved her character so now I am thinking of a way to bring him back from the dead in a believable way so she doesn't lose it.

Ssshhhhhaaaaaadooooowwwwwww~... dancer.

I'm sure that's what Inwas going to say. Yes.

My story definitly Cyric's out. I know a guy.

Just sitting here, listening to twinkle-twinkle little star, hand clamped over a child's mouth so as to avoid others hearing him cry out as I restrain him against his will and remove him from his mother...

Uh, I mean, wait-!


I'll be sure to let them know~!

(The weird things I do for this job.)


Most destructive Treerazor,

I hear you want to gain power and destroy your father and the elves.

Well, see, I know a guy. He happens to be looking for a demon to enbiggen, to help destroy elves and take out your pa, you know? See where I'm going with this?

But here's the deal: to make the formula just right, he kinda needs to know more about the circumstances of your "start" as it were, ya dig?

We heard of your Pop... but how? Did you just, I'unno, "Pop" into existence from him? Did he imprison and torture you to turn you into the fine specimen of utter waste and destruction you are today (well, obviously not, you did that part, but, you know what I mean)? Or was there some unholy concoction of abyssal and elven juices that your ol' pater-jerk-face spit in (or whatever) to get you started (even if it was on accident - though, in truth, they say you're too impressive not to exist, so it could just be incidental that the jerk happens to be vaguely related to you). Or did you just use it to get more power and really are unrelated? What did you use (and prob'ly rip apart) to start yourself on your epic journey toward the impressive destructive entity you are today?

Also, were it possible, would you appreciate someone interested in strengthening your Blackaxe, only to be immediately devoured by you? I know another guy...

... if so, how was it crafted, if you know...?

These guys both wanna mention they're faithfully yours 'til you devour them and everything else.

Or what if a paladin a burns an orphanage to the ground - or otherwise destroys it utterly, as it's taken special action to defend itself against errant adventurers and the like - and slaughters everything that was living inside and salts the earth behind him?!

To be fair, it was a "demon orphanage" created by demons for demons whose parents had been smote by (probably now-fallen) paladins, filled with orphan demons that were created by fiends mating with each other to produce full-fledged sentient demons at slightly reduced strength (-1 CR until they "grow up"). It was basically there to make sure the demons all gained their full strength and then the advanced template, and hated good and law even more than normal demons. And the salt was holy undead bane salt meant to ensure that the demons didn't rise as undead thereafter.

Heh. I knew a guy...
