CE Druid?

Druids, at least if this is 3/3.5 edition, are required to have at least one neutral component in their alignment.

Dec 07 2013 @ 02:35 by allen1smith about Orc Druid

CG Druid?

Unless something's up with Eberron or something, this druid should be CN or NG, not CG - druids always have a neutral component of their alignment.

Dec 07 2013 @ 12:51 by allen1smith about Warden of the Wood

Outsider (demon) - not elemental

The 3rd edition type is mislabeled - should be outsider (and IIRC outsider (demon)).

Dec 07 2013 @ 13:17 by allen1smith about Balor

Aberration, not beast

For the 3rd edition, this is an aberration, not a magical beast.

Dec 07 2013 @ 13:22 by allen1smith about Beholder Ultimate Tyrant

3rd edition - dragon, not magical beast

For 3rd edition, this is a dragon, not a magical beast (and in MM I).

Dec 07 2013 @ 13:40 by allen1smith about Elder Green Dragon

Outsider (demon) - not elemental

The 3rd edition type is mislabeled - should be outsider (and IIRC outsider (demon)).

CG Druid?

Druids, at least if this is 3/3.5 edition, are required to have at least one neutral component in their alignment.

Odd - "charm person" vs "cure moderate wounds"

The miniature is down as having the use of a spell - "charm person", but with a confusion effect - while the RPG card suggests a better representation would be 2 "cure moderate wounds" with a restriction against using them on the undead.

Sep 12 2016 @ 17:08 by allen1smith about Harmonium Guard

Ghost Touch?

I find it weird that they didn't put down Ghost Touch as an ability for the skirmish card, as a less-complicated stand-in for "Blessing of the spirits" and that the shaman can actually do more than one Chastize Spirits per day.

Sep 12 2016 @ 17:36 by allen1smith about Orc Wolf Shaman

Forgot Unique

They seem to have forgotten Unique. And, for the Commander Effect, is that routing enemy creatures, or routing under-command creatures?

Sep 12 2016 @ 18:36 by allen1smith about Count Strahd Von Zarovich, Vampire

No rage?

Barbarian 2 - but no rage?

Sep 12 2016 @ 19:43 by allen1smith about Orc Mauler


This is an animal ("natural beast")? That seems rather unlikely...

Sep 12 2016 @ 20:03 by allen1smith about Blood Fiend

Chaotic Neutral but all factions?

I've seen quite a few cases (tagged with "restricted factions") of less factions than RPG alignment would dictate, but none of more factions! The MH explains the first, but doesn't mention the second.

Sep 12 2016 @ 20:23 by allen1smith about Druid of Obad-Hai

Demon (Outsider)? Undead? Elemental?

Which is it?

Sep 12 2016 @ 22:50 by allen1smith about Immolith

Chaotic good?

Huh? I can see restricting these to _evil_ factions, on the grounds that risking spreading a contagious disease is evil...

Sep 12 2016 @ 23:00 by allen1smith about Rat Swarm

Faction Lawful Evil, Alignment Neutral Good?

Umm... what?

Sep 12 2016 @ 23:28 by allen1smith about Prisoner

Immune acid?

The RPG version has immunity to acid.

Sep 12 2016 @ 23:57 by allen1smith about Greenspawn Sneak

Skirmish strong?

Given Respawn, I can see an argument for it...

Sep 13 2016 @ 00:04 by allen1smith about Imp

Skirmish weak

Lower saves; less melee attacks; no Cleavel lower AC.

Sep 13 2016 @ 01:11 by allen1smith about Aspect of Hextor


Most if not all the other aspects have Independent.

Sep 13 2016 @ 01:24 by allen1smith about Aspect of Nerull

5 HP?

Five HP instead of 20 (from 22)? Tagging as "skirmish weak".

Sep 15 2016 @ 20:34 by allen1smith about Orc Savage

15 vs 40 HP

Tagging as "skirmish weak".

Sep 15 2016 @ 21:08 by allen1smith about Quaggoth Slave

Forgot Unique

They seem to have forgotten Unique.

Sep 19 2016 @ 15:10 by allen1smith about Lord of Blades

Resist Sonic?

They should really have that...

Sep 19 2016 @ 19:10 by allen1smith about Destrachan

Nice quote

Be sure to read the quote on this one!

Sep 20 2016 @ 02:45 by allen1smith about Orc Wizard

Tanis half-elven?

This was tagged with "tanis half-elven" for some reason. It isn't a unique creature.

Sep 22 2016 @ 15:16 by allen1smith about Free League Ranger

Lawful barbarian?

The RPG side fails to reflect that a lawful barbarian loses the ability to rage. The miniatures stats do not use the rage ability, however.

Sep 23 2016 @ 11:52 by allen1smith about Half-Orc Executioner

"expanded factions"

I've started adding this to such cases - there are a few others, but nowhere near as many as those with "restricted factions". Check for both those tags for a _mixed_ case...

Sep 23 2016 @ 23:49 by allen1smith about Druid of Obad-Hai

3.5's Summon Monster chart claims CG only

Errata for this?

Sep 24 2016 @ 00:03 by allen1smith about Celestial Dire Badger

Deserts with cold vulnerability?

Evidently not in the (rather frequent) deserts that get very cold at night...

Sep 24 2016 @ 02:07 by allen1smith about Sand Giant

Celestial dire lion?

This seems to be the LG equivalent (that one's CG).

Sep 24 2016 @ 02:36 by allen1smith about Blessed Hunter


Arcadia is a strongly Lawful, mildly Good plane. I've added "celestial" as a tag.

Sep 24 2016 @ 13:22 by allen1smith about Arcadian Hippogriff

Same as 3.5 Spectre?

Is this the equivalent to the 3.5 Spectre?

Sep 24 2016 @ 13:51 by allen1smith about Specter


I'm surprised it doesn't have Difficult.

Sep 24 2016 @ 15:28 by allen1smith about Gray Render

Hobgoblin Marshal vs Hobgoblin Sergeant

The latter has the higher Commander rating (3 vs 1), but they're the same CR/level. Huh?

Sep 24 2016 @ 16:15 by allen1smith about Hobgoblin Marshal

Troglodyte Barbarian?

I suspect the cards would, aside from "collector information", be identical.

Sep 24 2016 @ 17:46 by allen1smith about Troglodyte Brute

NE vs CG/CE?

I suppose I can see it on the grounds that Xen'drik is Eberron's version of the Far Plane...

Sep 24 2016 @ 18:54 by allen1smith about Xen'drik Champion

Not NE?

Zombies (and skeletons) are virtually always down as Neutral Evil - typo in the Draconomicon? (The card agrees with the sourcebook.)

Sep 25 2016 @ 16:04 by allen1smith about Zombie White Dragon

Also - unique?

The MH states that it's very hard (and a rather bad idea) to have two aspects of the same deity in close proximity.

Sep 25 2016 @ 21:00 by allen1smith about Aspect of Nerull

Chaotic evil faction only - but worg riders?

Snig is lawful, IIRC.

Sep 27 2016 @ 18:24 by allen1smith about Worg

True neutral would make more sense

Judging by who he's willing to work with, plus traditional thinking on objectivity, etc...

Sep 27 2016 @ 18:29 by allen1smith about Sage

Huge or Large?

One side of the card says Huge; the other says Large. Either makes sense.

Sep 27 2016 @ 19:37 by allen1smith about Arcane Ballista

Chaotic monk?

Technically, he can't advance further as a monk, even as a Drunken Master - but the Drunken Master prestige class does _not_ require lawful alignment (a barbarian is noted as having qualified...)

Sep 27 2016 @ 23:52 by allen1smith about Drunken Master

CR 12 or 14?

The other War Troll is CR 12.

Sep 28 2016 @ 12:55 by allen1smith about War Troll

Skirmish weak?

The skirmish version lacks energy drain (also an additional source of self-healing, on top of the fast healing 2), turn resistance, domination, and gaseous form.

Sep 28 2016 @ 13:33 by allen1smith about Vampire Spawn

NE vs CG/CE?

The Monster Manual actually says that they're nasty/suspicious but CN.

Sep 28 2016 @ 14:02 by allen1smith about Wizened Elder Watcher


Omission of this seems to be an error.

Sep 28 2016 @ 22:11 by allen1smith about Celestial Giant Owl


Omission of this seems to be an error.

Sep 28 2016 @ 22:12 by allen1smith about Fiendish Snake

Disguise self?

I have to wonder why, given both shapechanging and thought detection, this creature isn't given that.

Sep 29 2016 @ 00:51 by allen1smith about Rakshasa

Eldritch spear - range 250 feet (50 squares)

This is over twice as far as the normal maximum of 24 squares.

Sep 29 2016 @ 00:58 by allen1smith about Renegade Warlock

Left out Immunity Confusion

It is rather of a characteristic of theirs, being quite insane...
