Not a Magical Beast[edit]

I quote from the Monster Manual: A magical beast looks like a beast but acts like a person. Magical beasts often superficially resemble animals, sometimes with a human face or head, but are more intelligent (Intelligence 3 or higher).

I'm pretty sure your digester doesn't talk and its Intelligence is 2. So I think it should be a beast. Aboleth11 08:05, 27 May 2009 (MDT)

LOL...yes I suppose thats true, I didn't give much thought to the origin, because this was a request by another person, I spent about 10 minutes writing it, and haveyet to double check it. But ya I will agree. Thanks for catching that. -- Sepsis 12:06, 27 May 2009 (MDT)

Not a Lurker Either[edit]

I think this is a artillery cuz it deals a lot of damage without messing around with a conditions and stuff... And while i'm on the subject why is sea drowned a skirmisher? Aboleth11 13:16, 27 May 2009 (MDT)

I used Lurker because I needed the range of stats that Lurkers have, I considered Artillery but didn't like how they stated out. So as the fluff states they are nocturnal hunters that attack with surprise, I felt justified in using Lurker. Also they say Lurkers cause "...devestating damage every few rounds, while concentrating on defense in between.", and while they don't have a "defense power" they do have a high movement (and can Jump very well) so they defend by fleeing in wide circles until they can attack again. Basically they sneak up (using Stealth) in the dark and then attack at range while running about. Not the greatest of Lurkers, but they do work well as a surprise "camping" encounter, and as I said that role had the correct stats for me. As for the Sea Drowned they are meant to be support troops for the brutish undead, that are also commanded by their Controller leader. And once more role fit the stats I was looking for. They work well as part of an undead crew, and if used properly they can harass PCs to the point of desperation. They could be considered Controllers themselves except they tend to function as a group, and they normally need to get in close in order to do any real damage. Thanks for your concern. -- Sepsis 15:18, 27 May 2009 (MDT)
