[Spoilers]ACG-Demon's Heresy

I know that the ACG Playtest is old news, but I was reading through Demon's Heresy and one particular NPC jumped out to me as a GREAT candidate for a re-write using an ACG class. I also upped his power by just a tad to hopefully make him more dangerous for Mythic PCs, but YMMV. Here he is.

Note: These stats are with him Raging & with his Demonic Bulk already adjusted. BUT it is not adjusting for any spells you might have him cast before a fight with your PCs. Power Attack adjustments have not been made yet as well.

Second Note: I did make some sub-optimal spell & mythic ability choices as I tried to keep in mind that he isn't normally fighting mythic enemies, but leading raids against regular crusaders.

Silver Crusade

I agree, and have been planning the same change. Since my "associated" player is a barbarian, this fits perfectly (and gives him a chance to change if he wants to)

This is awesome. I was about to sit down and do this myself, so thanks for saving me a ton of work! I gave him one more level for my group, since they've got an extra person. 12 is a nice break point for him, since PA goes up at that level and all of his saves go up as well.

That is a great idea, especially since you have that extra character. Remember he has Power Attack (Mythic) too so that should make things interesting. I imagine he would easily spend a mythic power point to get rid of the PA penalties too.

Yeah, it comes out something like +22/+22/+22 3d6+23 etc, after bull's strength and haste (new spell for lvl12) with mythic PA. Swift for another one. Drops any PC right now except our guardian.

edit: thought I added his haste spell, but it was there all along!

Haha. Tell me this is the guy from the duel. Then tell the rest of the forum why it's so crazy funny.
