Small mistake with Nhakazarin stats block

"Consume Masterpiece [one-action] (manipulate) Requirements
Nhakazarin is adjacent to the rotting statue of Belcorra
in area C34; Effect Nhakazarin devours a chunk of
flesh from the statue and regains 3d6 Hit Points and is
quickened 1 for 1 round. She can use this extra action
only to make a jaws Strike or Cast a Spell. She can feed
from the statue only once each day. "

If you are Quickened 1 for 1 round, it doesn't do anything, as the effect stops just before you gain your actions.

I'd probably change it so Nhakazarin is either quickened on her next turn, or she gains an additional action that can only be used this round to make a jaws Strike or Cast a Spell. The former is more powerful, but comes at a delay, while the latter is immediately useful but ends up being a one-shot heal with no action loss. Both could be quite good.


Since the intention is to give her one extra action, that is, give her back the action she just spent consuming masterpiece...

I'd just change Consume Masterpiece into a free action and drop the "and is quickened 1 for 1 round" language.

Consume Masterpiece [free action] (manipulate) Requirements
Nhakazarin is adjacent to the rotting statue of Belcorra
in area C34; Effect Nhakazarin devours a chunk of
flesh from the statue and regains 3d6 Hit Points. She can feed
from the statue only once each day.

The end result is likely much the same as the writer intended, just bypassing the "spend one action to get one back" complication for something much more straight-forward.

The intent was to give her an extra action on her next turn. So, quickened 1 until the end of her next turn" or the like. So, she nom noms on the current round, and then when she starts her next turn her creepy undead stomach absorbs the masterpiece fully and boosts her up during that next turn.


Thanks James!
