Or 'spirit bomb', Sakarin ;)

I do try, Sakarin XD

Yarost is more like the luggage than the muscle-but he won't be left behind ;)

New page! Did a whole bunch of writing yesterday-and actually got to the end of this fight! It's pretty epic-can't wait to publish more of it. I'll be breaking it up with more of the feast and also what Bork&co are up to(wrote that scene too) :)

Please vote, become a patron and check out the official site-

Yeah, being covered in shit is not usually the best preparation to going out on the pull ;)

Sounds good, Sakarin. That's one of the things that could make the monks a bit weak before-needing good str, dex, wis and con. By getting to hit and damage from dex this helps a great deal. Need to take a look at the PHB. May pick it up tomorrow from my local comic shop (he does some gaming stuff too-I try to buy things there when I can-support brick and mortar and all that ;)).

She's a comin', Guesticus. Can't unleash a full powered steam knight on the fight too early on. Then again, these are pretty strong Gnolls. Will Venom be up to the task?

That sounds cool! I'd like to take a look at 5th ed, but my group are primarily grognards (myself included really) so they probably won't adopt it.

More viable small monks sounds groovy-a small monk always seemed like a cool idea but was so sub-par as a choice-and given that monks were seen as one of the weaker classes anyway...

Not that I'd agree with that-monks can be great if you build them right and get the correct gear (stat buffs primarily-wis, dex and above all -str). My last monk was awesome-had to retire him cause the DM thought he was too good (although he was a minotaur, which may have contributed towards his power level somewhat ;)).

I'm all about strong monks-take a monk with str20 at lv 1 and you have a good character. Your AC may suffer a little, but most characters will have a low AC at lv1. Take powerful charge and flying kick feats and you're doing D6+5+D8+d12 on the charge! Who needs a good AC when you kill people in one hit! Well, you do I guess-but this can be remedied.Str is the stat to make as high as you can for monks (in my opinion)-that's the way to a monk that can hit and make people hurt. If your DM will let you have some magic hand wraps or gloves this will help too-allowing you to take advantage of your many unarmed strikes. I think my mino character (Yorgan the Bull) was on 7 attacks per round, each doing 30 odd +2d8+2d6 holy. He also had reach and combat reflexes-very handy ;)

I tried to make these bad guys likable-not just super evil.They have loyalty towards each other and a strong sense of honor towards their opponents (at least in the case of Goret and Yarost). I often find myself rooting for the villains, so you're not alone :)
