Lowcountry Low Roller
Just updated the index as there's been a bunch of recent activity.
All the guides use standard stat blocks as found the Monster Manual (or in the Tomb of Annihilation appendix).I couldn't find stats for guides in ToA, I decided that players can go alone into jungle or hire a guide.
Ok If you have a map or the location has come up at least twice on the rumor table, you can not get lost if you go straight to the location.
Guides get advantage on the survival roll.
If you are making a beeline for the next nearest location you only get lost once.
Mine too. But three of them have died in Omu so far, and they're now level 7. I'm actually starting to wonder if any of them will even make it into the tomb, let alone all the way to the Soulmonger.My 4-5 level party has been pretty much breezing through the encounters in the wilderness ...
My 4-5 level party has been pretty much breezing through the encounters in the wilderness, so I've had to start thinking about how to make them more challenging. I asked for help with adapting Mabala (and got good advice) in kthis thread
I'm working now on Hrakhamar. Depending on how many players are present (our crew ranges from 2-7 players per session), I'm planning on adding a Fire Elemental Myrmidon and/or a Fire Elemental to the shrine. I've also given some thought to adding a Salamander somewhere, and magma mephits, fire snakes, and or magmin in some places. In the case of the Elementals and Salamander, my idea is that they are also devotees of Imix and "in charge" of the fire newts in this location. (Maybe there is some wider plot that will become evident later) The remainder are for variety (and some of them have experience with Magmin)
Guides write ups are page 33-35 TOA. You will have to look up the stats in MM, TOA, PHB. I think Shago has the best Survival at +7.I changed navigation a bit - since I couldn't find stats for guides in ToA, I decided that players can go alone into jungle or hire a guide. They decided to hire Azaka Stormfang and I gave them advantage on navigation checks because they hired her.
A "dungeon roster" for the tomb of nine god would be helpful. I'm thinking of what is found on p. 113 for the fane of the night serpent, or what is included as a dungeon roster for each of the individual giant dungeons in Storm King's Thunder.
