Even then, I had a slashing resistance belt on for the first half of it before I started swapping them around to find one that works, and couldn't.

maybe their weapons count as magical so they go beyond the x/ ?

Answer is simple: great many creatures do combination of slashing and piercing damage with the most effective being dealt as a result. Take on swordsman belt + nobility helmet. The result is going to be 5 damage being absorbed. Take on treant shirt + archers belt and the result is going to be 3 damage being absorbed, all because of the shirt being -/3 slashing

Looks fine to me. Some creatures have multiple creature weapons, some creatures have some that do dual types, and I suspect your "damage reduction wasnt respected" because at the time you had a greater damage reduction already from greater stoneskin (you absorbed 20 points), damage reduction doesn't stack with damage reduction, it just takes the highest that works for the situation.

Which is why Huge Shabaoth was "playing fair", because it can hit past your greater stoneskin (because it doesn't play fair, lol) so your barbarian damage reduction has the priority.

Fair enough, I didn't consider that they could have dual damage types.

DM confirmed that Gudkaede Archers of Hazlan are armed with elven shortbows they cannot equip. I am unsure if the weapons the Gudkaedes have match the feats they have in general.

This is now fixed, thanks for reporting it.

Huecuva High Priest's cast Inflict Minor Wounds, which diminishes their stature as they will prefer to do this over attacking. This should probably be removed from their spell pool, perhaps along with Inflict Light Wounds.

Nordenvall Fane Reliquary Gudkaede Guard regularly spawns as an otter or whatever that is.



Sometimes that room has six gudkaedes but 50% of the time there is a single otter.

In addition, gudkaede guards have feats for long and short sword, but not for their actual weapon.

I think the Dev's have a whole lot of otter problems to worry about besides this.

Clearly that Guard offended a Red Wizard with Baleful Polymorph. But that's no excuse to shirk his duty.

This is me once again drawing attention to the Sleeping King's castings of Destruction. Against any group capable of making it to him, they're entirely useless, as you have to pass through a gauntlet of mobs spamming a higher level death spell at you the whole way. It's just a waste of his limited presence that lets groups beat him up for free without having to worry about his much more dangerous attacks with his sword.

The molds that can be found the mushroom filled room of the cave connecting dvergeheim to the southern forest have several problems.

First off, once they've attacked you once, it seems that after a while they manage to move and chase you.
Second, their resistances are very wieird. They have high immunity to cutting, positive energy, electricity even fire.

Plus they corrode weapons on a fairly high DC.

I dont think they add much of anything to the dungeon anyways

Works fine now it seems, also is it possible to make demonologists in Perfidus temple to cast "haste" after the time-stop and then everything else? Because they cast time-stop and then try to ward themselves sloooowly with no haste, such algorythm seems to be absolutely wrong, unhuman and ineffective.

The regular "shadows" in the Sullen woods constantly provoke attacks of opportunity whenever they attack. I don't know if it's because they lack a creature weapon, or because their touch attacks are implemented this way. Either way, it's a bit strange, and makes them very easy to deal with.

Touch attacks always proc an AOO. The shadows suffer from constantly spamming their draining touch attack, thus provoking a ton of AOO's. If it could be changed so that they are less prone to spamming this attack that would go a long way to fixing it.

Hi there! While traveling into the caves on the realm I ran into a mob called a:

Choking Cinder Fungus.

The Description of this fungus states its "HIGHLY FLAMMABLE"

However it seems to actually have a fair amount of Fire immunity, completely ignoring the effects of Darkfire added to a weapon.

I kinda feel like this is fairly misleading, or something overlooked?

Was directed to bring it up here!
