  • 10:50 PM - dave2008 mentioned MonsterEnvy in post Disintegrate vs Forcecage
    I should have specified that I'm using @dave2008's beefed 5e monsters. His version of Yeenoghu has Disintegrate instead of Teleport. But you're right that some limited teleport would be a good addition for Demon Lords. @robus, I just wanted to point out that my Demon Lords have some standard spells that they all have access too. If you look at the demon lord traits, all demon lords have the following spells: At will: comprehend languages, darkness, detect magic, detect thoughts, polymorph, see invisibility, telekinesis 3/day each: arcane gate, dispel magic, fear, teleport 1/day each: forbiddance, symbol So my version of Yeenoghu does still have access to teleport. However, as @MonsterEnvy noted, I plan to add limited range at-will teleport abilities in future updates.

  • 04:56 PM - Hawk Diesel mentioned MonsterEnvy in post Curse of Strahd - Finale Help - Spoilers
    MonsterEnvy I don't think you need to be so harsh. We know nothing of the campaign before this fight. Additionally each table is different. While you may disapprove of the stylistic differences, this may be quite appropriate to the OP's table. Personally, I think it would be a much more productive conversation of instead of bashing the OP, we trust that he knows what is fun for his table and either raise question to his choices (encouraging reflection on why he is running this way) or providing suggestions within the framework he has posed. As to the OP, Strahd is smart, has had centuries to master his craft, and has the blessing of the Dark Powers of Barovia. I would recommend sprinkling in traps and illusions. Strahd likely knows that his bones pose a weakness. Either he would have multiple sets of bones in the room, guardians protecting them, illusions to confuse and disorient the players, or most reasonably a combination of all these things. Another cool trick might be to have the bones...

    MonsterEnvy Oh, her survivability isn't in question. Liches, right? I just meant to illustrate how her awesomeness in-game, both online and in the original Neverwinter campaign setting for 4th Edition, has gotten her an appearance as little more than an Easter egg. But work is work. Hope she was compensated adequately for her cameo! Or at the least, open more job opportunities!

    Hoping it's something related to the Planescape we know and not a complete reboot using the MTG Planeshift stuff they have been putting out (Which is my hunch). I don't supposed anyone has actually confirmed that it's a WoTC owned address have they? Most I have gotten so far is that it's registered with Godaddy. Well, MonsterEnvy confirmed here that it was posted on WOTC's Twitter account.

    I thought this was a Monty Python thread before I realized it said "Lich" not "Larch" But, Tam would be the one to me. MonsterEnvy lays out a good delineation point: The others are more than just a lich.

  • 12:10 AM - pukunui mentioned MonsterEnvy in post Enter Into The Frozen Castle With Kobold Publishing
    jayoungr: As MonsterEnvy suggests, you could make it so the cult attacked the castle, causing it to crash, sometime after the PCs left. Then, at an appropriate point during The Rise of Tiamat (that is, when the PCs are 10th or 11th level), a representative from Blagothkus could approach the council and ask that the PCs come and help get the castle flying again. That's what I will most likely do if the castle doesn't crash at the end of HotDQ in my campaign.

  • 06:38 PM - Rhenny mentioned MonsterEnvy in post Help Me Plan My Next Move (Princes of the Apocalypse Spoilers)
    MonsterEnvy, Rabbitbait, and Marcelus14 - We may play tonight so I think I'll use a little bit from all of you. I'll have the feast scene all seem well and good. Perhaps the PCs will notice some of the knights looking at them strangely (but only if they tell me they are looking for it). Thurl will talk up the evil of the Earth Cult and encourage the group to investigate, but he'll also invite them to stay the night to rest and begin their adventure in the morning. That night, I'll have the Three Knights along with Barister (the cleric who is an Air Cultist), sneak into their room to capture them and bring them to the Pinnacle. Up there, Thurl Merosska and some other Knights and Initiates will hold a sort of trial. If someone in the party speaks well (and persuades) Thurl, he will commend the Half-Orc and tell the others in his society that it is that type of "ferociousness" that he and the others should develop in order to wipe out the Earth, Fire and Water cults. (This will be the ...

  • 08:44 PM - Lanefan quoted MonsterEnvy in post MTOF: Elves are gender-swapping reincarnates and I am on board with it
    And The Elves are innately magical....Yep. They're magic-based creatures. But nobody ever thinks of the logical consequence: if an Elf is innately magical - i.e. is a magic-based creature - then any Elf who somehow enters a null-magic or no-magic area and stays there should in theory die before long. Even a really high-powered Dispel Magic should knock an Elf back a bit. As for gender switching, in my homebrew I gave that to Orcs in part to help explain their otherwise-ridiculous reproduction rate* and in part just as a differentiator. Elves already have enough going for them. * - colony almost get wiped out by adventurers? 90% of the survivors switch to female and start having babies as fast as they can....
  • 01:47 AM - Yaarel quoted MonsterEnvy in post MTOF: Elves are gender-swapping reincarnates and I am on board with it
    Do you remember what elves were like in older editions. There were near universally +2 dex -2 Con. And no plus 1 ability score is good not average. Humans can get a +1 to anything cause they are the versatile race. Were as Elves are more dexterous and have a boost to a mental stat. High Elves having a bonus to charisma and Eladrin to Charisma. I have played older editions. The 1e grey elf enjoys a +1 Intelligence in a gaming system where in 1e a +1 to a mental ability score for a spell caster is considered broken even by 1e standards. The 1e grey elf has extremely powerful intelligence. The 3e grey elf is +2 Intelligence. (The Pathfinder elf, likewise, is +2 Intelligence.) I remember the 3e sun elf, standard in Forgotten Realms and is +2 Intelligence and −2 Constitution. (It lacks Dexterity improvement.) I remember the 4e eladrin elf, +2 Intelligence and +2 Charisma. Finally an elf that is actually is good at performance checks to write poetry, sing songs, charm others. The 5e Pl...

    This loss never happened. And The Elves are innately magical. With almost all of them have a bonus towards a caster stat. In 5e, +1 ability score improvement is an *average* human. Mediocre. Mundane. The high elf is below average in Charisma performance checks, and the eladrin is below average in Intelligence wizard DCs. 5e elves are disappointing at what in previous editions they are supposed to excel at.

    He does not seem to consider it a mistake according to the manual, but he refuses to elaborate on it. When has any god ever owned up to making a mistake?

    We got a lot of Yugoloths this book. My favourite Yugoloths is the Merrenloth, shockingly powerful for it's CR in a mostly none combat way, which really high lights that Challange Rating is just about combat, not about how powerful as a whole a creature is. Heck the Merrenloth isn't really interested in combat to begin with, which makes them stand out compared to all the murderous fiends out there. Another fiend that really stands out to me is the Dybbuk, which is clearly influenced by the exorcist movie. Also is it me or is Primus and his Modrons responsible for a lot of creatures in 5e or what. Primus directly caused the Slaad, Mordons, Inevitibles, and via a rogue Hexton, Steel Predators.

  • 08:34 PM - jgsugden quoted MonsterEnvy in post Let's compile errors we have found in Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes
    No it's not. The Elemental has Earth Gluide and Seige Monster. Other then that it just smacks people hard. Those abilities don't really effect combat. The Myrmidon has a combat ability that makes it hit harder.I can't believe you've run an Earth Elemental in combat if you think Earth Glide doesn't impact combat. Regardless, Myrmidon has one AC higher, one hp more, and slightly higher strength, dexterity, wisdom and charisma. It also, about once per 6 rounds, can do about 16 extra damage and knock someone prone - except it isn't extra damage as it can't be part of a multi-attack. So it does only an extra 5 damage that round if it hits. Oh, and an extra language. Their attacks count as magical, which is nice when summoning them versus certain foes... The Earth Elemental has burrow/Earth Glide, Tremorsense, Reach, has a +1 to hit and deals an average of 3 damage per attack more when he does hit... Meaning the extra damage of the Myrmidon is washed out by the greater damage of the Ear...

  • 05:37 AM - Shemeska quoted MonsterEnvy in post Oinoloths in MToF?
    Got a reply from Mearls. He did not elaborate much on the reasons for the change but did say this about Anthraxus. "Oinoloth is a type of yugoloth, Anthraxus is a specific and very powerful individual of that type" That's an unfortunate retcon there in Mearls answer on top top of the already extant retcon regarding "oinoloths" in MToF. Anthraxus is an altraloth, formerly an arcanaloth (per the 2e 'Pox of the Planes' article) prior to his transformation. I'm disappointed that as 5e seems to be genuinely trying to appeal to fans of prior settings and make reference to them in 5e content, it's retconning a pretty massive amount of the lore from those settings.
  • 04:31 AM - Demetrios1453 quoted MonsterEnvy in post Oinoloths in MToF?
    I am currently trying ot ask the designers about the Oinoloths as its a strange decision I am curious about. I'm more curious on why they left the piscoloth out, considering it's one of the more distinctive yugoloths. I'm actually fine with these new oinoloths, since they're simple to explain, at least in my mind - they're just "lesser oinoloths", servants or creations of the original.
  • 04:21 AM - Mouseferatu quoted MonsterEnvy in post Oinoloths in MToF?

    I assume like he used to. A fly faced humanoid. 97677 I thought he used to be beautiful in some of the editions, I mean preslug form. I mean fly face is not a step up from slug form in the looks department.

    We get 6 Archdevils in this book Bael Duke serving Mamon at CR 19 Geryon fallen archduke at CR 22 Hutijin Duke serving Mephistopheles at CR 21 Moloch exiled archduke at CR 21 Titivilus clever but weak duke serving Dispater at CR 16 Zariel Fallen Angel and Archduchess of Avernus at CR 26 CR26 already for the lord of the first? That certainly starts higher than i would have expected
  • 09:20 AM - dave2008 quoted MonsterEnvy in post Baalzebul is back to normal (And other new lore discoveries.)
    Interesting thing I just learned in the new book. It appears they have reverted Baalzebul back into his humanoid form instead of his slug form in the new book. Namely they state that Baalzebul punishment from Asmodeus that turned him into a Slug was not permanent. The Punishment was that he would turn into a Slug Creature for one year each time he lied to another Devil. However the punishment was retroactive, so he turned into a Slug for millennia. And has only recently not lied enough that his form is back to normal. He is now honest with other devils as he does not want to turn into a Slug thing again any time soon. I found this an interesting bit of new lore. I wonder if in the future we will get two stat blocks for Baalzebul. One of him as a liar slug and one of him as a Fly faced humanoid. Any other cool new Lore stuff have people found in Tome of Foes? Glad to hear it I guess. When I found out about his slug form I ignored it anyway, so status quo for me.

    No they tend to be accepted in on death from what I recall. Up to now, yes, that's what happened. With this lore, they seem to just go over this perpetual circle of deaths and reincarnations.
  • 03:02 AM - Yaarel quoted MonsterEnvy in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    What exactly is your issue here. That Eladrin don't have a +1 to Int. High Elves already had that so it make sense not to repeat it. The +2 is necessary. The issue is the flavor that the mechanics defacto establishes. The problem is 5e transmogrified the diverse elf traditions into a mundane creature that excels *physically* (+2 Dexterity) but is only average mentally and magically (+1 Charisma, Intelligence, or Wisdom). In 5e, recall, average humans get +1. The flavor of +1 is average. The elf who is innately excellent at magic (+2 Charisma, +2 Intelligence) is officially dead. This elf that goes back to 1e grey elf, that exhibits extraordinary *mental* affinity for magic, the 5e designers murdered this tradition. (In 1e, +1 Intelligence was a big deal, often considered broken, because of the resulting benefits to spellcasting.) This elf archetype that is all about magic remains valuable to me.

    Question is there Art for the Molydeus Demon in the book. Secondly how are the Abishai types in terms battle role. (Like Casters, Stealth.) I searched aroundand couldn't find any art for the Molydeus Demon, perhaps because each wields a different weapon depending on it's master. So each Abishai (Black, Blue, Green, Red, & White) focus on a different style. Black - Assassinish Blue - Wizardy Green - Cunning and illusiony Red - Leadership & raw power White - seem to be reckless pawns
  • 02:42 AM - gyor quoted MonsterEnvy in post Another Youtube review of MTOF
    I think she has only ever been a Greater God in 4e. In 1e she was a Demi god at the start and was prmoted a bit later to Lesser God if I remember correctly. In 2e she was a Lesser God, In 3e she was an intermediate god. (On the Low End so would probably still count as a Lesser God in 5e.) And in 4e made the jump to Greater God as that was the only type. Any lesser ones were just Exarchs. No it was Greater God, God, and then Exarch in 4e. Now its Greater God and Lesser God and Angels (made from a God's essence).

    Though I should note there is not Intermediate category for Gods now. It's ether Lesser or Greater. I didn't see anything in the tables indictating Greater or Lesser Deityhood, but I can think of only 4 Gods between the two Pantheons that would be Greater Gods Lolth, Ghaunadaur, Corellon Larethian, Angharradh.
  • 06:04 PM - Parmandur quoted MonsterEnvy in post I will answer 10 questions about Mordenkainen's Tome
    Uhh we did not lose the Charismatic Elf. Eladrin get a bonus to Charisma, if you want a bonus to intelligence then the High Elf provides that.Considering that the various Elf subraces are already among the best options for any given spellcaster Class, it is an odd complaint.
