THUNDERLIPS! AM WILLING TO TAKE LEVEL OF HUNTER TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

JUST THIS WEEK, THUNDERLIPS! HAD CHANCE TO PROVE HIS INFLUENCE TO SEVERAL FINE LADIES OF ABSALOM. THEY WERE ALL IMPRESSED BY TONDERNOTTER AS IS RIGHT AND PROPER. NOT ONCE DID THUNDERLIPS! NEED TO SLAP TONDERNOTTER UPSIDE A GUARD'S FACE SINCE THEY ALL RECOGNIZED ME FOR THE MAN OF INFLUENCE THAT THUNDERLIPS! AM. THUNDERLIPS! LOVE THE LADIES. THEY LOVE ME RIGHT BACK.

BUT SOON, AS THE ADVENTURE TO INTRODUCE ULFEN LINEAGE TO THESE LADIES CONTINUED, THUNDERLIPS! ENCOUNTERED A SANGUINE BEAST THE LIKES OF WHICH MADE MY HEART FLUTTER. EVEN MORE THAN MADELINE BLAKROS, MY BELOVED.

THE TROLLHOUND.

SO BEAUTIFUL. SO POWERFUL. SUCH AN ATTITUDE. SO LIKE OLD WOMAN BLAKROS. WHY CAN THUNDERLIPS! NOT HAVE ONE FOR A COMPANION? THUNDERLIPS! IS WILLING TO MAKE GREAT SACRIFICE (SEE ABOVE) TO LOCATE THIS MAGNIFICENT SANGUINE BEAST TO ROAM ABSALOM WITH. WE WOULD DO GREAT DEEDS FOR MALODOROUS! LIKE I DID FOR LADY GORILLA! THUNDERLIPS! ALWAYS WILLING TO SHAKE DOWN PEOPLE SELLERS FOR MONEY. THUNDERLIPS! AND TROLLHOUND WOULD SPREAD INFLUENCE EVERYWHERE WE WENT! LONG WALKS ON THE DOCKS... TEARING APART GNOLLS... LOVING THE LADIES...

I WOULD LOVE HIM, AND PET HIM, AND SQUEEZE HIM, AND NAME HIM hamaria.

THUNDERLIPS! HEARS THERE IS A MAN MORE POWERFUL THAN THE CARPET SELLER VALSIN IN THE PATHFINDER SOCIETY. THIS MAN OF INFLUENCE GOES BY THE NAME JOHN COMPTON. HE EVEN HAS FUNNY TITLE AFTER JOHN COMPTON! THOUGH, THUNDERLIPS! IS ADMITTEDLY CONFUSED BY DEVELOPER BEING BIGGER THAN CAPTAIN. SOMETIMES GOLARION NOT MAKE SENSE TO THUNDERLIPS! WHAT DOES MAKE SENSE IS THUNDERLIPS! WITH A TROLLHOUND COMPANION.

HOW DOES THUNDERLIPS! ACQUIRE SUCH A SANGUINE BEAST COMPANION?

Kerreck leans on his massive warhammer as he drawls.

Aye, there were, young missy. Fear not, arrangements have been made.

The dwarf grins at the last and chuckles a bit.

Dinnae why THUNDERLIPS! would want a trollhound, though. They smell a wee too much like the real thing, if ye ask me.

This is an outrage and I feel your pain, longshanks. Surely you should be able to tame the cutest of all dogs--the trollhound--and claim one as your boon companion. Clearly this "society" of ours is being punitive and prejudiced against us animal inclined gentlemen.

Why, just last week I found myself exploring some ruins in the Mwangi Expanse and encountered a cuddly creature of my own. While my companions shied away, cowards they were, it was love at first sight for Little Rukk. This adorable little pudgy beast needed a home, and I was happy to provide one. So what that if its gaze turned my wolverine to stone. That's not ol' Stinkeye's fault! He just wanted to play fetch and eat kobold jerky. And there ain't nothing wrong with that in my book. But noooooo, Little Rukk can't have a basilisk as an animal companion because they're "too strong."

Freaking b*%&~#!+ man.

Anyway, you've got my support if you wanna torch the Grand Lodge or whatever.

We just finished rebuilding the lodge from the last time that happened.

Could you at least go tear down the Silver Crusade's joint?

Please?

Sure I dinnae know what ye mean by that, lass, but I dinnae take kindly to anyone sending gobbos to burn down me comrades' home.

"By Aroden... um... Abadar, let that not happen. Verily, I shall defend the honor of the Silver Crusade unto my very life, for to protect the honor of Lady Ollysta Zadrian.

"Stay thee away, you barbaric warrior. And keepest thy foul beasts from the fair Society for which we toil. One should think that yon THUNDERLIPS! would be better suited to the Dark Archive, for they mayst be better prepared to handle his random outbursts"

Liberty's Edge

Now, now, friends, surely we have better things to do than burn each others' houses. Kendrick smiles broadly as he fiddles with the signet ring on his right hand. Why, I hear that our dear colleagues in the Aspis Consortium are busily beating us to choice ruins in the Mwangi Expanse, where THUNDERLIPS! could surely find foes to test his mettle. As well as the natural habitat of the trollhound, unless I'm much mistaken. We certainly have better to occupy our time than idle threats against our fellows.

THUNDERLIPS! PREFERS LEAST VIOLENT METHOD OF OBTAINING TROLLHOUND COMPANION. SEE THE GREAT SACRIFICE THUNDERLIPS! IS PREPARED TO MAKE.

TROLLHOUND HAVE BETTER ARMOR CLASS THAN THUNDERLIPS!

TROLLHOUND HAVE BETTER WAYS TO COMBAT TRIP AND BULL RUSH ATTEMPTS.

TROLLHOUND... YOU COMPLETE THUNDERLIPS!

Scarab Sages

Sweety, having a troll hound is a big responsibility. You have to remember to walk them three times a day or it gets really messy. You have to remember to feed them four times a day or they get a little cranky, chew through the ropes and start eating people... so you can't forget even once.

Maybe you should try starting with a pet that requires a little less upkeep like a. Ah.. uhm..."

She takes a little peice of clay and molds it, sculpting a nearby rock into a face with smiling teeth

"Mr Rocky might last a little longer and be safer. A little.

Grand Lodge

Shaking his head as he listens to the barbarian.

First, you and your betrothed make a mess out of the lodge, and now you WANT a trollhound? WHAT SANE PERSON WOULD WANT TO HAVE O-O-NE OF THOSE THINGS AS A PET?!

Hearing Kendrick's thought on the matter, the Sylph snaps his fingers and walks up to THUNDERLIPS!.

Kendrick is right, there should be some sort of trollhound nests in the expanse... Maybe you can find a pup, and care for it all on your own?

THUNDERLIPS! immediately picks up Mr. Rocky (well played...) and hurls it at the nearest wall screaming "Adrian!"

THUNDERLIPS! stands still, eyes glazed over, his breathing slow and rhythmic. With a shake of his head he snaps out of his moment of mindfulness.

NOBODY SAW THAT, RIGHT? WE WON'T TALK ABOUT THAT EVER AGAIN, RIGHT?

Now I understand why he wants a Trollhound.

It's about the only critter that could survive an outburst like that...

THUNDERLIPS! WILL TRAVEL FACE AND BODY OF GOLARION TO BRING HOME TROLLHOUND COMPANION hamaria! IF MWANGI EXPANSE HAS TROLLHOUNDS AVAILABLE, THUNDERLIPS! WILL GO THERE. IF OPPARA HAS TROLLHOUNDS, THUNDERLIPS! WILL TAKE IN AN OPERA. shudder SINCE THUNDERLIPS! WILL ALREADY SACRIFICE BY BECOMING HUNTER... THERE IS NO PLACE THUNDERLIPS! WILL NOT BRAVE FOR TROLLHOUND COMPANION!

A deep voice calls down to Thunderlips from Skyreach

THUNDERLIPS! YOU ASK FOR A GREAT GIFT, INDEED. AS YOUR BOON COMPANION, FLUTTER, NOTES, THE TROLLHOUND IS A TEMPERAMENTAL BEAST THAT REQUIRES MUCH CARE AND WOULD OTHERWISE SOIL THE CARPETS OF SKYREACH DURING MISSION BRIEFINGS. IT WOULD EAT THE ASPIRING HALFLINGS WHO WOULD JOIN OUR ILLUSTRIOUS ORGANIZATION. IT WOULD CAST SHAME UPON THE SOCIETY BY ENCOURAGING THE RAMPANT MURDERHOBOISM THAT WE ABHOR.

The voice pauses for a moment, as though the speaker were leaning in for emphasis. WE HATE MURDERHOBOISM, RIGHT, THUNDERLIPS!?

This would likely be an option that uses the Monstrous Mount feat chain from Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Combat

I CANNOT CONDONE THIS SORT OF CREATURE TRAIPSING THE HALLS, ITS STENCH OF FERMENTED OFFAL STAINING THE HALLS AS IT STAINS OUR REPUTATION. I CANNOT ALLOW YOU TO— I, AH… The voice trails off before a shadow-shrouded figure kicks Little Rukk from the balcony and extinguishes the goblin's arson torch.

The voice clears its throat. THUNDERLIPS! I MAY RECONSIDER AND GRANT YOU SPECIAL DISPENSATION TO OWN A TROLLHOUND IN EXCHANGE FOR DRAGGING THIS GOBLIN RASCAL AWAY FROM THE GRAND LODGE WHEN NEXT YOU LEAVE.

EXPLORE, REPORT, COOPERATE!

One of the adventures devised yesterday for later in Season 7 might align with Thunderlips's interests. What level is Thunderlips?

You are VERY MUCH NOT ready for the responsibility of a troll hound.

And shame on the rest of you for sending such a walking disaster to the poor defenseless creatures of the mawangi expanse.

"While I don't really condone your use of Kobold jerkey, your bravery and restraint with Stinkeye was quite admirable. I will gladly stand at your side again Little Rukk, as our journeys may continue. I too am disappointed that you were not able to keep him, especially as you treated him with much more kindness than your wolverine. It is good to share your journeys with a companion that you value. I myself adopted Sleepy, my dog, into my family. But I believe the main reason it would have been unfair to keep Stinkeye is that he belonged to the kobolds, ones that we dealt with amicably after our misunderstanding at the entrance."

I have to agree with Flutter here.
Some people need to learn how to treat their companions before they are to be allowed to take care of creatures that will rely upon them a lot more.

THUNDERLIPS!'S eyes grow big. His mouth opens just a bit. Drool collects on his lower lip. The hair on his face, head, and chest expands exponentially. Wispy shapes coalesce around THUNDERLIPS!, mimicking their caller. Slow steps bring THUNDERLIPS! closer to the mammoth. An arm moves toward the beast.

Looking slightly worried at the shapes around THUNDERLIPS!, Shamira gently pets the mammoth.

As long as you remain a bit calmer you can pet her, she's been trained to listen to my commands. Also, if you ask her nicely in Hallit, she might be willing to let you ride her for a short while.

He's easy to distract. A trail of meat, raw or cooked: makes no difference, usually gets him home with out too much fuss.

LESS POPCORN! MORE TROLLHOUND! MORE GENERAL DISCUSSION! LESS FACTION TALK!

THUNDERLIPS! UNDERSTAND DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOARDS. MAYBE ONLY THING THUNDERLIPS! UNDERSTANDS.

DID THUNDERLIPS! EAT ALL POPCORN?

THUNDERLIPS! VERY CONFUSED NOW.

'Trollephant... Trollephant. What sort of lust magic would be required to make that happen.'

"THUNDERLIPS! Buddy! Have I got an idea for you! So, what do you think would happen if you crossed a troll with a wooly mammouth? Or perhaps a trollhound with a wooly mammouth? Would that be something you would want to ride?"

The rat pimp starts giggling to himself, dry washing his hands. There has to be something in this ancient Thassalonian magic he studies that could make this happen.

Yeah I dont think this is something that needs to go into an RP forum, it's really a humorous pitch for a rule expansion


TROLLHOUND

Starting Statistics

Size Small; Speed 30 ft.; AC +2 natural armor; Attack bite (1d8 plus trip); Ability Scores Str 14, Dex 15, Con 13, Int 2, Wis 11, Cha 6; Special Qualities darkvision 60 ft, low-light vision, scent, fast healing 1 (this functions like regeneration with regards to being exposed to acid or fire), beastlike (although a magical beast, the trollhound companion is treated exactly like an animal with regards to spells, Animal Empathy, hit dice, etc.)

7th-Level Advancement

Size Medium; Speed 40 ft.; AC +2 natural armor; Attack bite (1d10 plus Bloodfire Fever); Ability Scores Str +4, Dex –2, Con +2 Special Qualities regeneration 3 (acid or fire), replacing fast healing Special Attacks Bloodfire Fever

And don't even try telling me this is overpowered. It's not even a dinosaur.

While I'm not entirely convinced that trollhounds would make good companions or mounts, since I've seen a number of pathfinders riding on more such magical beasts I'm thinking that with a good way to support these disease ridden monstrosities they could be put in the kennels for the special needs companions?

kinda like the way the axebeak and owlbear have been introduced?

Grand Lodge

Upon hearing the booming voice an elf enters. The elf has dark red hair that starts at a widow's peak and is slicked back and tied off in a long ponytail. He is wearing red robes that give off an aura of flame with a raven perched on his shoulder.

Speaking in a thick Brevic accent he chuckles, "Normally, I'm the on destroying things, this is something new."

The wizard then produces a foil pouch from his magic sack. He quickly casts a fire cantrip at the sack, causing a frequent popping sound to emit from the pouch. After a couple of minutes he opens the top of the sack creating a small puff of steam and smoke.

He then reaches in and produces some of the fresh popped material and has a couple of bits, giving some to his raven.

He then holds the bag out, "Popcorn anyone? This is about to get interesting."

KEEP MAKING POPCORN! THUNDERLIPS! HAS WORKED UP MIGHTY APPETITE!

CAN YOU CREATE BEER AS WELL? WHY DOES NO ONE SAY THEY BREW BEER IN THREADS? BEER TASTIER THAN PUFFBALLED KERNELS.

An aasimar with a resplendent lion-like mane of golden hair and green eyes with pupils like a cat walks in. His clothing appears to be magnificently valuable. Clothing Value in thousands of gold: 1d4 + 6 ⇒ (3) + 6 = 9
His hands appear to be shirviled and blackened as if they were severely burned recently.

He pulls out several tankards from a magical bag and makes an incantation over them. Shortly they are filled with beer.

"Did someone request the creation of Beer? Cayden grants me the ability to create beer, I will share with all who wish it. While I am happy to provide beer for all who wish to imbibe, I can say I don't think I'd like trollhounds to start being a common occurrence around here. I think that they'd prove quite a bit more difficult to train than the more typical companions I have seen about the lodge."

Sorry, but no beer. Evocation is my specialty, I only dabble in Conjuration.

Beer is better than popped kernals, but I prefer vodka myself.
