DCC#17 monster question - spoiler

Post by AstroCat » Tue Sep 04, 2007 8:00 am

Looking at Stygoth,

Stygoth, adult black dragon:
Full Atk +24/+19/+14 melee (-5 secondary) I know Stygoth does not have the typical dragon stats but why only 3 attacks and where does the +14 come from? With out the multi-attack feat wouldn't it be +19, +19 for the 2 secondary attacks, why the extra -5 on the third attack?

Even if you are only giving him 3 attacks instead of the normal 6, because he is sick I presume?

Any help? Thanks.

Astro,

I looks like the *cough* author made some mistakes. I'll try to post a corrected stat block, but it will probably be a couple of days before I can get back to ol' Styogth.

Man I love that encounter. Half my home games start out with "roll for initiative" and Stygoth captures that emotion best.

Hehe... no worries. We played the first encounter tonight and it went very well. Lots of panicking party members with the dragon coming after them through the swamp. The set up of the screams of the orcs being slaughtered in the mist before hand was fun as well. :)

Whose house?

Blackdrige's house!

BD is the _man_. Plus he's an editor that could snap my spine with his pinky. The dude is ripped.

And that's is why you're an editor and I'm a writer.

Hmmm ... techinically, you're a writer, too ...

What the hell do they keep me around for anyway?

Ah! To make "Blackdrige" look good! ;)

Some editor I am; I misspelled "mispelled." God, I love dumb irony. :D

Plus Harley then write a sentence to show why he needs an editor.

"And that's is why you're an editor and I'm a writer."-Harley

For non-English geeks the problem is Harley used "that's is..."

Which is the same as writing "that is is".


:lol:

Besides, its a good idead to make people who can snap your spine with their pinky feel loved, admired, and needed. Helps keep them from hurting you.

Maybe that should read: I, dead. And it might have been a glimpse of things to come for Treebore if he ever shows up at Winter Fantasy... :lol: :wink:

I don't write for Goodman Games, or anyone for that matter. So I am not worried about my writing errors, since I don't write professionally.


So only Harley is in trouble. :lol:
