Mssing creature stats

Post by Borealis » Thu Apr 05, 2007 11:33 am

I'm sure I can extrapolate the correct numbers myself, but I'd rather get the 'official' word just to be safe.

It seems that in DCC32, the stats for the Saena Tree were misprinted. Specifically, in the stat block, the saves are listed as follows: Str 30, Dex 1, etc. Ability scores rather than saving throw modifiers.

Would the saves be the same for the Corrupted Saena Tree listed immediately afterwards? The ability scores are identical, so if they're the same the numbers would be Fort +18, Ref +5, Will +19.

I'm putting together my son's 'DCC Monster Manual,' so I'd like to fix the oversight (or misprinting in my copy, as the case may be) for the files.

And a follow-up question: in DCC16, one of the spells, Strike of the Cobra, is listed as having a material component, but no component is included in the description. If there should be a component, what is it?

I know, I could make one up...but official word is always nice. :)

I just re checked my notes - and you are correct the saves are the same...

Thank you for your quick reply. I've adjusted the file.

Have a blessed Easter!

Took me awhile to find my original notes on this ... "The Book of Seven Serpents" and the new spells found within its pages weren't part of the original "Emerald Cobra" manuscript - they were actually something that got added into the manuscript later on, right before the module went to the printer. So my initial write-up for the spell was in a separate file.

Anyway - getting back to the original question, yes, there is a material component for the spell. Which is:

Material Component: Three drops of blood from a king cobra.

Hope you find this helpful!

I do indeed, thank you very much. Perhaps there could be some form of errata file for little details like this that might crop up. What can I say, I'm a stickler for accuracy...especially on spells.
