I need a bit of help. I am planning on running a game based upon the Bottle of the Bound. For those of you who do not know what that is, it is a bottle that contains 666 Fiendish creatures.


What I need is 222 each of devil (LE), demons (CE), and daemons (NE) or sub species of each.


I will be starting the players off at level one.


They will be working their way up through the ranks, so they will start off at CR 1 opponents. The following table is per alignment (CE, NE, LE) of the monsters I need


CR: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 Extra

Amount 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 12


Now, I do not want to just sick 20 of the same creature at my players at level one. That would end up feeling like too much of a grind. I want each and every fiend to be unique. So, they will have personalities, names, and (hopefully) different stats.


The players will also, among themselves, have a few special items to help them since they will need to deal with this army in as small amount of time as possible. Because after the first CR1 creature comes out, there will be only 11 hours till the last creature comes out.


Now, the big thing I need help with is just getting a bunch of individual CR1 to CR5 fiends. Luckily, the fiendish template is a zero change to CR with creatures of 5 hit die or less, so I can just have a bunch of level two to level five characters to fill in the majority of the CR1 to CR4 group.


So, if anyone reading this could help by coming up with short stat sheets (like the kind found in the monster manuals, not full blown character sheets) for a bunch of fiends that look to have been sealed up during Ancient Egypt (the equivalent of where they were actually sealed), I would be very greatful. Also, I would like a short bio (just a brief glimps at the personality, name, and description of the looks would be good). No need for full on backstories, but I want to have enough to help make each enemy further unique.

Have you tried grabbing Paizo's NPC Codex and just on-the-fly adding the fiendish template to the characters within? Many of them have personality descriptors and evocative pictures.

Pathfinder is compatible with D&D 3.5, right? Have you considered using the creatures of Yugoloth? Some super cool old biblical Sumerian/Mesopotamian-ish evils in that crowd...

Think Gozer the Gozarian brand evil, but with less marshmallows and more flayed-four armed-bat-headed-fat-god-devils-with-boar-tusks-and-bull-horns.

 

Maybe consider changing the stats of some angels to be evil creatures?

Not a bad idea. How many NPCs are in there? Just so I know how many more I'd have to make still?

It's got 1 NPC at each level, 1-20, of every class in the corebook, plus one for every Prestige class and their iconics at multiple "save points"

Over 250, but I don;t know the exact count.

Pathfinder is lovingly referred to as "D&D 3.75" due to how similar to 3.5 it is.

 

And thank you for the information, this will help a hell of a lot. Now to save money from a couple of paychecks to get the NPC codex. Or, I might be able to sell my DM (this idea is basically a breather for the main campaign) on it or to him.

 

I still will need to make about half of the fiends, but that is a hell of a lot less.

heh, a hell of a lot.

 

it may not be as helpful as the last thing I said, but try here for inspiration, at least.

Good, long review of some more interesting demonic beings in the D&D pantheon. Not sure whether or not they're all from the same versions, but a lot of monsters end up recycled repeatedly, so it's worth a shot!

Why not just pick monsters you like from the MM, refluff them to suit and if needed stick the appropriate template on them?

 

No need to go crazy after all trying to make 666 monsters when there are 1000's already out there that will work with new fluff.

Are you worried about it for creativity purposes? You can always make up new forms for a demonic centipede or spider.

Give the spider a giant eyeball for an abdomen that constantly oozes a web made of blood, or say that the centipede is a mass of writhing tentacles in a vaguely serpentine form, each tipped with four sets of venomous pincers.

~imagination~!

Honestly, I think I have enough to finish up on my own time with no problem.

 

The big problem is the Daemons known to be in the bottle.

 

http://www.pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Bottle_of_the_Bound

 

Specifically, Zelishkar (The big bad needs stats) and Ivixstayn & Loiix (conjoined quasit. How would I stat conjoined creatures?).

 

The rest I can either just use the normal stat block for their creature type or modify that stat block a little, or add class levels to them.

for conjoined, I would look at the ettin. and it's ability to attack with both arms without penalty. letting your quasit claw with both hands at no penalty, and get two bite attacks instead of one

      My 5 1/2 yo son is super into Batman.  I had set up a Pathfinder game for the grownups, but only filled 2/4 seats.  My son has shown a little and growing interest in tabletop gaming.  So I made some stats for Batman as a Pathfinder character and used his LEGO Batman on the battle grid.
       
      Here are how it came out: attributes were rolled.
      Race Human
      Class Ranger (Urban) lvl 1
      Str 16
      Dex 19 (+2 human)
      Con 14 
      Int 13
      Wis 14
      Cha 8
       
      Favored Class Ranger +1 HP
      Trait: Rich Parents
      Trait: Deft Dodger (+1 Reflex)
      Favored Enemy Humanoid (human)
      Feat - Improved Unarmed Strike
      Feat Human - Exotic Weapon Prof - Shuriken
       
      Skills - don’t remember exactly, sheet isn’t in front of me:
      Acrobatics, Craft (alchemy), Disable Device, knowledge (local), perception, Survival, Stealth
       
      Gear- I took some liberties here for flavor:
      Mwk Studded Leather, Batarangs(shuriken shaped like a bat available in a lethal or non lethal variety), smoke bombs (combine thunderstone and smoke stick in one thrown item same price as both combined), Mwk thieves tools, sap, spiked gauntlets x 2 (his sharp things sticking out of his arms), Grapnel: (Light Crossbow + 50ft silk rope + Mwk grappling hook + 100gp to account for the “gnomish winch”) I would have loved to make it a hand crossbow, but didn’t want to waste two feats on exotics.  I just tacked on cost to the various gear to use up the gold from rich parents and still leave him with a good kit.
       
      He made level two and I chose an alt. Option for weapon style: thrown weapon.  That gave him bonus feat of Precise Shot without needing Point Blank Shot, but I plan on adding it later.
       
      Let me know what you think.
       
      My son didn’t have the attention span to stay at the table for long: his cousins were in the pool, so he ended up there.  My friend always plays the Cleric, but he ran Batman as a second character and had a blast with it.

      I'm taking the leap and about to buy my first airbrush for mini painting and was hoping I could get some advice on what to buy. The Airbrushing: compendium has been very helpful and I've spent hours, days, what feels like years researching and I want to pull the trigger... I live in Canada and after ringing around some hobbyshops etc it seems amazon is the best bang for my buck. I have paint and access to a Campbell Hausfeld 2 Gallon Air Compressor (I will purchase another compressor in a few months once I have some more disposable income). My main concerns are does this compressor work with the airbrush listed below, do I need anything else? Heres what I've got in mind:   NEO CN GRAVITY-FEED DUAL-ACTION AIRBRUSH $97.20 CAD Paasche 10-foot Nylon Braided Hose $18 CAD Airbrush Cleaner 4 Kit, Washing Tools - Glass Cleaning Pot etc $22 CAD Vallejo Airbrush Cleaner 85ml $7 CAD   any advice would be appreciated

      The Whispering Tyrant from the second Bones kickstarter. This is an officially licensed Pathfinder miniature. So I guess it is some sort of evil adversary in some adventure or other in that game.
      For me, this is Loki. I expect you see why. To make the model even more similar to the trickster god, I cut off the central helment-thing and carved the helmet round. Which took me whole tens of seconds! Bones material is really easy to cut and convert. I will miss this aspect with the Bones Black minis.
      On this mini I have tried out some new colorshift paints from Green Stuff World and a flip paint (which is supposed to get the same effect) from Instar.
      I probably did not do it right, as I don't think it has much of a colorshifting effect (there is a slight effect, though). The instructions say to use a gloss black undercoat and many, many thin layers to get the effect.
      I did not do that. On a brown basecoat I used GSW Mystic Gold colorshift, and Instar Green Gold Flip, with GSW Tropical Green at the tips and edges. and I just glooped it on! Two or three thick coats of each paint is used here. So next time, maybe I should try actually following the instructions...
      Anyhow, this model will make a good leader for my undead legions, or even a C'Tan for the Necrons.
