I was surprised to find this posted so early
I'm about to run the waterfall/cave section of KotS for a group.. I might replace a few of the kobolds with ones from this.. but I have to be careful not to make it too hard (virtually everything in this is higher level then the ones in kots/mm)
Maybe put a piker and spiker outside the cave, and replace something inside with a vermin Handler...
I really want to use the wild mage but he's a bit strong for this point.
I'm definately going to use some of these in my 'real' campaign though.. there's just some very neat ideas.
Okay, did anyone else laugh their tail off at the 'Kobold Victory Chart'?
The nice thing about the chart is, with a little fudging of dice rolls, it can very easily be used to help balance an encounter slightly. If the PCs aren't doing too well, the kobolds steal things and run off to hide them, or just hide under the unconscious PCs. If the PCs are mostly kicking tail and one gets in a lucky hit then there's a few different minor buffs to help even the odds somewhat.
But most importantly, almost all the options are interesting, and can be quite memorable if used properly.
This is yet another really good article. It pains me that they wont let us pay for Dragon seperately. None of the other D&DI features have anything of value to me yet I would gladly pay for this quality of article.
Though I am confused by the Kobold Horde swarm, good concept but I think I'd bump the size up to large swarm as its suposed to be like 10 kobolds, I don't think 'small' is the right size. I dunno
I agree with you. I don't think that a swarm of small creatures should stay small. I think most swarms of Tiny creatures are considered medium, so it makes sense to me to make a swarm of small creatures large.
But still all in all I love the article and can't wait to use the Victory Chart!!!
I'm starting to understand why people like kobolds so much.
Oh, and later, Deekin.
Quick rules question.. the Wild Mage's Wild Blast.. does that deal 2d6+4 dmg of each type, or is the total thirded into each type of damage? Its pretty lethal if its the former...
