38, 39 - Hyena, Hyena (Dire)

Post by Thorpocalypse » Tue Jan 31, 2017 2:12 am

More canines for the Gloriant setting.

Image
Why so serious?

HYENA

ABILITIES: STRENGTH 2, STAMINA 2, AGILITY 2, DEXTERITY 0, FIGHTING 4, INTELLECT -3, AWARENESS 1, PRESENCE -3

SKILLS: Athletics 2 (+4), Deception (-3), Insight (+1), Intimidation (-3), Perception 2 (+3), Persuasion (-3), Stealth 2 (+4)

ADVANTAGES: Improved Trip, Move-by Action

Tough Hide: Protection 1; 1 pt
Ultimate Scavenger: Feature 1 (Iron Stomach); 1 pt

Ranged Attack +0

DEFENSES:
Dodge +4 [DC14] Parry +4 [DC14]
Toughness +3, Fortitude +3, Will +1

COMPLICATIONS:
Disability: Hyenas cannot speak humanoid languages, nor use their paws to easily manipulate objects.
Reputation: Hyenas are almost universally disliked by humanoid species (except Gnolls) and have a reputation for not only being vicious scavengers, but even opportunistic child killers and by some, servants of the underworld.

Abilities 10 + Skills 3 (6 ranks) + Advantages 2 + Powers 14 + Defenses 3 = 32 / 32

Comments: Hyenas get a really bad rap the world over. Granted, that laugh of the spotted hyenas is pretty creepy, and yes, they are vicious and run leopards and lions away from their own kills sometimes, and they have been known to kill children, but…

OK, maybe it’s deserved. But still, I like them. And if any creature deserves the old Iron Stomach Feature, it’s them. Their big brothers, the Dire Hyenas are below.
DIRE HYENA
PL6

Ranged Attack +0
Special Attack [Unsettling Laugh Affliction +3, Burst Area]

DEFENSES:
Dodge +4 [DC14] Parry +5 [DC15]

Abilities 12 + Skills 5 (10 ranks) + Advantages 2 + Powers 31 + Defenses 6 = 56 / 56

Comments: The big, badder cousing of regular hyenas, the Dire Hyenas. Only real change from a standard d20 conversion is the Unsettling Laugh power I added. No sense in them having that legendarily creepy laugh without giving it an actual use.

Umber Hulks are one of the classics. They don't appear in traditional fantasy literature, and they're completely unique to D&D. Aren't they one of those monsters created because one of the original creators had a handful of Japanese gumball-machine toys?

That sounds right, but I can't remember. If it is, it's a great reason for them to exist. ;)

I did a short test with my PCs against one. I may have to clean it up and post it. They won, but it wasn't easy. +11 Toughness with your biggest hitter can only hit +10 without a crit is hard to deal with, even with vastly superior numbers.

Build Comments: Kobolds are some of my favorite fantasy creatures, and also my most dreaded. Yippy little cowards, they are fun to take out in droves, but geez, they have also given me and my friends an inordinate amount of trouble! Years ago, my old group switched to 4E and started a base 1st level adventure. And we GOT OUR ASSES KIIIIIIIIIIIICKED by some Kobolds. I mean, we almost had to retreat. Then we immediately went and destroyed a young white dragon, only taking 1 hit between the four of us. It was hysterical. It’s been a running joke ever since of “Throw Orcus or 10 Balors at us, but for God’s sake, no Kobolds!”
Have you ever read Tucker's Kobolds? If used right kobolds can be mean little bastards :lol:.

Comments: Ishkanah is loosely based on the Magic the Gathering card from the Eldritch Moon set from 2016. I have not been lucky enough to score a copy yet, but it’s been a pretty popular card since it came out with the rise of the decks utilizing the Delirium mechanic. In my setting, she is just a big spider queen that is being worshipped by a cult of kobolds and drow.

Build Comments: Kobolds are some of my favorite fantasy creatures, and also my most dreaded. Yippy little cowards, they are fun to take out in droves, but geez, they have also given me and my friends an inordinate amount of trouble! Years ago, my old group switched to 4E and started a base 1st level adventure. And we GOT OUR ASSES KIIIIIIIIIIIICKED by some Kobolds. I mean, we almost had to retreat. Then we immediately went and destroyed a young white dragon, only taking 1 hit between the four of us. It was hysterical. It’s been a running joke ever since of “Throw Orcus or 10 Balors at us, but for God’s sake, no Kobolds!”
Have you ever read Tucker's Kobolds? If used right kobolds can be mean little bastards :lol:.

EDIT: Aaaannd I just realized BriarThrone already linked to this. :oops:
Is the infamous trapmaster Grimtooth a kobold? Or just an honorary one?
We rise from the ashes so that new legends can be born.

I see you feel about spiders is the way I feel about rats. We ran into a rat swarm tonight in my D&D game and ended up hitting two of the party with a Thunderwave just to take them out because my character, like I, HATES RODENTS. The guys weren't happy with me. But at least they got some payback when my character got charmed and I had to fight the party so they took a couple of extra shots to "incapacitate" me during the short battle. ;)
