On a failed save the creature is also thrown  60ft back from its original position and takes  and additional 7 (2d6) falling damage.


Opportunity Attack


Legendary Actions

Sauron can take 5 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary action can be used at a time  and only at the end of another creature's turn. Sauron regains spent legendary actions at the start of his turn.

- Attack. Sauron makes a melee attack. 

- I See You (Costs 2 Actions). As a flame awaken in his dead eyes, each creature within 60ft of Sauron must make a DC 26 Wisdom saving throw, taking 21 (6d6) psychic damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one.  On a failed save creatures also see a lidless burning eye appear  in front of them and can hear Sauron say "I see you", paralyzing them for 1 minute. The creature can repeat its saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success. 

Cast Spell (Costs 2 Actions). Sauron casts a spell from his list of prepared or innate spells, using a spell slot or spending a use as normal.

- Description

He is the Dark Lord, The Lord of The Rings. He is one of the greatest of the Maiar and the greatest and most loyal of Melkor's servants. With The One Ring once again in his grasp he has regained his full might and stands ready to lunch his assault upon Middle-Earth. No one will stand against him, and he will cover the whole of Arda in shadow. 

- Lair and Lair Actions

Barad-dur the great fortress of Sauron held together by dark magic this mighty fortress lies in the very heart of Mordor, built close to the base of Mount Doom Sauron commands his vast legions from the top of it's tall dark tower. 

- Lair Actions

On initiative count 20(losing initiative ties), Sauron takes a lair action to cause one of the following effects; Sauron can’t use the same effect two rounds in a row:

The ground begins to heat and break all the ground within 60 ft is now considered difficult terrain. Sauron absorbs the powerful energy flowing through the ground and air, until the start of his next turn his armor starts to burst with fire all his melee weapon attacks deal an extra 4d6 fire damage on a hit. Sauron releases a wave of red crackling energy all other creatures lose all types of damage resistance until the next round.Sauron causes the area around Mount Doom to tremble and shake, as large cracks form in the ground and all creatures within 120 ft of Mount Doom must make a Dextarity saving throw DC15 or take 2d6 bludgeoning damage, and 8d10 fire damage as lava starts to spew from the cracks in the ground and are knocked prone or take half damage and are not knocked prone on a success.

- Regional Effects

The region containing Sauron's lair is a desolate waste land, which creates one or more of the following effects:

The sky is darkened by storms of Sauron's making there is no natural sunlight in all of Mordor.The very are is a poisonous fume, at the end of of each day all elves, humans, Dwarves, half-lings, half-elves, and gnomes  must make a DC10 constitution saving throw or become poisoned until they leave Mordor. No spell or effect not cast by Sauron can change or alter the weather in Mordor unless he chooses to allow it. No creature can teleport in or out of Mordor without Sauron being aware of it. 

If Sauron dies, these effects fade over the course of 7 days.

What system is this?

Due to the mention of Lair actions, I think that it's a conversion to 5e from another system.

And it makes absolutely no sense to post it in a PF1/Conversions to PF1 sub-forum.

There are a lot of 5e-isms in the OP!

If it is supposed to be 5e stats, then that is fine but it does not belong in a PF1 forum (you'll get more and better feedback if you post it somewhere 5e is actually on-topic).

If it is supposed to be PF1 stats, then it is fine to take inspiration from 5e (but maybe a little bit less) but at the minimum you need to use PF1 terminology (Reflex save rather than Dexterity save, spell out what you mean by "Advantage" rather than using the undefined keyword).

Dark Archive

Maybe I am blind, but I do not see where in the text it has rules on if he loses the ring, is it like an instant death, or just an insane amount of minuses, or does it trigger his death throes?
