Post more Stat Blocks for my Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaign
I love storytelling. Unfortunately I'm not much of a writer. For the most part I've fallen back on obsessing over RPGs. I love DMing and roleplaying as they are both a way for me to satisfy some of my creative impulses. On my notebook computer, I have hundreds of fleshed out characters for various 3.5 campaigns [just wasting space], and now I've started creating Pathfinder characters [to waste a bit more]. I know I'm not alone in this endeavor. I enjoy fishing for stats on here and on the net. I only adapt stats further where I find it necessary. This post is for myself, other STAT-MONSTERS, and/or other fans of Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaigns.

I'll start with two vampires I couldn't resist converting to Pathfinder. Thank you to all the Ravenloft writers, game designers, and stat-makers whose work I based the following stats off.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Blood Drain (Su) Strahd can suck blood from a grappled opponent; if he establishes or maintains a pin, he drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution damage. Strahd heals 5 hit points or gains 5 temporary hit points for 1 hour (up to a maximum number of 312 temporary hit points) each round he drains blood.
Children of the Eclipse (Su) Once per day Strahd can call forth 2d10 Strahd skeletons, 2d6 ghouls, 1d10 Strahd zombies, 1d6+1 shadows, or 1d6 wraiths or mohrgs. Additionally, Strahd can use his children of the night ability once per hour. These creatures arrive in 1d6 rounds and serve for 1 hour.
Children of the Night (Su) Once per day, Stahd can call forth 1d6+1 rat swarms, 1d4+1 bat swarms, 2d6 wolves or worgs as a standard action. These creatures arrive in 2d6 rounds and serve Strahd for up to 1 hour.
Closing the Borders (Su) When Strahd wishes to close his domain, a thick fog rises from the ground to surround Barovia. This fog has the same properties as the choking vapors that shroud the Village of Barovia. The ring of fog that surrounds the Village of Barovia and Castle Ravenloft is a lethal poison, one that infuses itself around a creature’s organs and lays dormant until an unfortunate soul attempts to escape the village. Any living creature that steps beyond the fog’s outer edge immediately suffers from frothing fits, suffering 1d4 points of temporary Constitution damage per hour until it dies (no saving throw). Lost Constitution returns only when the creature returns to within the ring. A Vistani with Knowledge (alchemy) skill can make an elixir (DC 25) that renders a creature immune to the fog’s effects for 10 minutes, long enough to pass through. The Vistani never allow giorgio to learn the elixir’s formula, and they deny their services to any travelers without hesitation if Strahd instructs them to do so. Strahd can dissipate the fog if he wishes, but he never does.
Create Spawn (Su) Strahd can create spawn out of those he slays with blood drain or energy drain, provided that the slain creature is of the humanoid type. The victim rises from death as a vampire in 1d4 days. This vampire is under the command of Strahd, and remains enslaved until his destruction. Strahd may have enslaved spawn totaling no more than 32 HD; any spawn he creates that would exceed this limit become free-willed undead. Strahd may free an enslaved spawn in order to enslave a new spawn, but once freed, a vampire or vampire spawn cannot be enslaved again.
Create Mythic Spawn (Su) Whenever Strahd uses his create spawn ability he can create a vampire spawn, vampire, or expend two uses of mythic power to create a mythic vampire. Additionally, Strahd can expend one use of mythic power whenever he creates any type of vampire to hasten the transformation, causing the victim to rise as undead in 1 hour instead of 1d4 days.
Dominate (Su) Strahd can crush a humanoid opponent’s will as a standard action. Anyone Strahd targets must succeed on a Will save DC 23 or fall instantly under his influence, as though by a dominate person spell (caster level 12th). The ability has a range of 30 feet.
Energy Bleed (Su) A creature hit by Strahd’s slam attack or other natural weapon, or by a melee weapon wielded by him, gains two negative levels. This ability triggers for every attack Strahd successfully makes.
Gaseous Form (Su) As a standard action, Strahd can assume gaseous form at will (caster level 5th), but he can remain gaseous indefinitely and has a fly speed of 20 feet with perfect maneuverability. If reduced to 0 hit points in combat, Strahd assumes gaseous form and attempts to escape. He must reach his coffin home within 2 hours or be utterly destroyed. (Strahd can normally travel up to 9 miles in 2 hours.) Additional damage dealt to Strahd after he is forced into gaseous form has no effect. Once at rest, Strahd is helpless. He regains 1 hit point after 1 hour, then is no longer helpless and resumes healing at the rate of 5 hit points per round.
Grave Touch (Sp) As a standard action, Strahd can make a melee touch attack that causes a living creature to become shaken for 8 rounds. If Strahd touches a shaken creature with this ability, it becomes frightened for 1 round if it has fewer than 16 Hit Dice. Stahd can use this ability 12/day.
Master of the Realm (Su) Strahd may open or close the two main gates on the Old Svalich Road as a free action from anywhere in his domain. He has similar power over the gates and doors of Castle Ravenloft, where he also senses the entry of any creature with an Intelligence of at least 3. From anywhere in his domain and without concentrating, Strahd may control his horse-drawn carriage as if he were driving it. He can sense the presence of any creature with an Intelligence of at least 3 that comes within 30 feet of the carriage and can also sense when such a creature enters the carriage.
Mastermind (Su) As a standard action, Stahd can see, hear, and speak through the body of a single creature it has dominated. Strahd can use this ability indefinitely, so long as he and the creature under his control remain on the same plane. While Strahd is communicating through another creature he can’t move, but he is still aware of his surroundings and may end his telepathic communication as a free action. Additionally, by expending one use of mythic power, Strahd can make use of the spell telekinesis (CL 25).
Mist Shapes (Su) Strahd can summon and sculpt mist into realistic shapes as per the spell major image. A shape created in this way lasts for as long as Strahd can see and concentrate upon it. In areas of particularly dense mist—typically outside and at night—Strahd can use this ability as mirage arcana.
On Dark Wings (Su) As an immediate action, Strahd can expend one use of mythic power to gain a fly speed of 30 feet with perfect maneuverability. Upon using this power, Strahd chooses whether to manifest bat-like wings or to float unnaturally. If he manifests wings, he gains a +8 racial bonus to Intimidate checks. If he chooses to float, he instead gains a +8 racial bonus to Stealth checks. The ability to fly and associated bonuses last for 1 hour.
Overcome Weaknesses (Su) Strahd can survive exposure to direct sunlight. Every time Strahd begins his turn in an area of direct sunlight he is nauseated, takes 10 points of damage, and loses his fast healing ability for that round. Strahd has also lost the following vampire weaknesses: garlic, mirrors and holy symbols, invitation.
Life Sight (Su) Strahd gains blindsight to a range of 30 feet for 16 rounds per day. This ability only allows Strahd to detect living creatures and undead creatures. This sight also tells Strahd whether a creature is living or undead. Constructs and other creatures that are neither living nor undead cannot be seen with this ability.
Scabrous Claws (Su) As an immediate action, Strahd can expend one use of mythic power to extend claws of congealed, razor-sharp blood. This transforms his slam attack into a claw attack that deals damage as a creature one size category larger and deals 1d6 points of bleed damage. This attack can still drain energy and is treated as a magic weapon. These claws last for 1 hour.
Shadowless (Ex) Strahd casts no shadows and shows no reflection in a mirror.
Spider Climb (Ex) Strahd can climb sheer surfaces as though under the effects of a spider climb spell.
Vampire Weaknesses (Su) Each round of immersion in running water inflicts damage on Strahd equal to one third of his maximum hit points—If Strahd is reduced to 0 hit points in this manner he is destroyed. Driving a wooden stake through Strahd’s heart while he is helpless instantly slays him (this is a full-round action). However, he returns to life if the stake is removed, unless his head is also severed and anointed with holy water.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Blood Drain (Su) Nharov can suck blood from a grappled opponent; if he establishes or maintains a pin, he drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution damage. Nharov heals 5 hit points or gains 5 temporary hit points for 1 hour (up to a maximum number of 266 temporary hit points) each round he drains blood.
Children of the Eclipse (Su) Once per day Nharov can call forth 2d6 ghouls, 1d6+1 shadows, or 1d6 wraiths or mohrgs. Additionally, Nharov can use his children of the night ability once per hour. These creatures arrive in 1d6 rounds and serve for 1 hour.
Children of the Night (Su) Once per day, Nharov can call forth 1d6+1 rat swarms, 1d4+1 bat swarms, or 2d6 wolves as a standard action. These creatures arrive in 2d6 rounds and serve Gundar for up to 1 hour.
Closing the Borders (Su) When Gundar wants to seal his domain, the Mists of Ravenloft rise from the soil at the borders. Anyone who walks into them finds themselves hopelessly lost, with all routes leading back to Gundarak.
Create Spawn (Su) Nharov can create spawn out of those he slays with blood drain or energy drain, provided that the slain creature is of the humanoid type. The victim rises from death as a vampire in 1d4 days. This vampire is under the command of Nharov, and remains enslaved until his destruction. Nharov may have enslaved spawn totaling no more than 26 HD; any spawn he creates that would exceed this limit become free-willed undead. Nharov may free an enslaved spawn in order to enslave a new spawn, but once freed, a vampire or vampire spawn cannot be enslaved again.
Dominate (Su) Nharov can crush a humanoid opponent’s will as a standard action. Anyone Nharov targets must succeed on a Will save DC 19 or fall instantly under his influence, as though by a dominate person spell (caster level 12th). The ability has a range of 30 feet.
Energy Bleed (Su) A creature hit by Nharov’s slam attack or other natural weapon, or by a melee weapon wielded by him, gains two negative levels. This ability triggers for every attack Nharov successfully makes.
Gaseous Form (Su) As a standard action, Nharov can assume gaseous form at will (caster level 5th), but he can remain gaseous indefinitely and has a fly speed of 20 feet with perfect maneuverability.

This attack can still drain energy and is treated as a magic weapon. These claws last for 1 hour.
Shadowless (Ex) Nharov casts no shadows and shows no reflection in a mirror.
Spider Climb (Ex) Nharov can climb sheer surfaces as though under the effects of a spider climb spell.
Weaknesses (Su) Nharov cannot enter a private home or dwelling unless invited in by someone with the authority to do so. Each round of immersion in running water inflicts damage on Nharov equal to one third of his maximum hit points—If Nharov is reduced to 0 hit points in this manner he is destroyed. Driving a stake crafted from the wood of a bloodrose plant through Nharov’s heart while he is helpless instantly slays him (this is a full-round action). However, he returns to life if the stake is removed, unless his head is also severed and anointed with holy water.


Then there is the Death Knight who was embroiled with the former two at one time. I already posted him in his own thread but I figured I should include him here too.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Aura of Guilt (Su) Soth’s auras from his antipaladin class levels have been replaced by a powerful aura of guilt. All enemies within 100 feet of Soth take a –2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks. The penalty to saves rises to -4 against fear and compulsion effects. Creatures that are normally immune to fear lose that immunity within the aura. Any attack made against an enemy within the aura of guilt is treated as evil-aligned for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. Soth can expend two uses of his smite the guilty ability to grant that ability to all allies within 10 feet, using his bonuses. Allies must use this smite the guilty ability by the start of Soth’s next turn and the bonuses last for 1 minute. Using this ability is a free action. This ability functions only while Soth is conscious.
Channel Destruction (Su) Soth’s weapons are shrouded in destructive energy, and deal an additional +4d6 fire damage.
Channel Negative Energy (Su) Soth has can channel negative energy like an evil cleric. Using this ability consumes two uses of his touch of corruption ability.
Closing the Borders (Su) On Krynn, Soth was compelled to remember his sins each night in song. In Sithicus, he can seal the borders by repeating this dismal ballad. As he sings, he is joined by the voices of other sinners. The sound, rising from the borders, is so horrid that no mortal can withstand it. All must return to Sithicus or become hopelessly mad.
Devastating Blast (Su) Soth may unleash a 30-foot cone of destructive force. This blast deals 10d6 fire damage, but creatures within the area may make a DC23 Reflex save for half damage.
Rejuvenation (Su) One day after Soth is destroyed his armor begins to rebuild the undead horror’s body. This process takes 1d10 days—if his body is destroyed before that time passes the armor merely starts the process anew. After this time has elapsed, Soth wakens fully healed.
Sacrilegious Aura (Ex) Soth constantly exudes an aura of intense evil and negative energy, which functions as the spell desecrate. In addition, this miasma of fell energies hinders the channelling of positive energy. Any creature that attempts to summon positive energy in this area must make a DC 23 Concentration check. If the character fails, the effect is blocked, its number of uses of that ability being reduced by 1 or the spell being lost.
Smite the Guilty (Su) Six times per day, Soth can call out to the dark powers to crush a creature tainted with sin. As a swift action, Soth chooses one target within sight to smite. If this target is a non-innocent (has committed an act worthy of a powers check, regardless of the success or failure of that check), Soth adds a +5 bonus on his attack rolls and adds a +17 bonus on all damage rolls made against the target of his smite. If the target of smite the guilty is an outsider, a dragon, or a creature with levels of cleric, paladin, or antipaladin, the bonus to damage on the first successful attack increases to 34 points of damage. Regardless of the target, smite the guilty attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess. In addition, while smite the guilty is in effect, Soth gains a +5 deflection bonus to his AC against attacks made by the target of the smite. If Soth targets an innocent, the smite is wasted with no effect. The smite the guilty effect remains until the target of the smite is dead or the next time Soth rests and regains his uses of this ability.
Touch of Corruption (Su) Soth surrounds his hand with a fiendish flame, causing terrible wounds to open on those he touches. As a touch attack, he can cause 8d6 points of damage. Using this ability is a standard action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity. Alternatively, Soth can use this power to heal undead creatures. Soth can add an effect to his touch of corruption whenever it deals damage to one target. This choice is made when the touch is used. The target receives a DC 23 Fortitude save to avoid this cruelty. If the save is successful, the target takes the damage as normal, but not the effects of the cruelty.
Blinded: The target is blinded for 17 rounds.
Frightened: The target is frightened for 8 rounds.
Shaken: The target is shaken for 17 rounds.
Staggered: The target is staggered for 8 rounds.
Stunned: The target is stunned for 4 rounds.
Turn Immunity (Ex) Soth cannot be turned, but he can be banished with a holy word spell as if he were an evil outsider, which sends him to Nedragaard Keep. While within the walls of his keep, Soth can neither be turned nor banished.
Undead Mastery (Su) As a standard action, Lord Soth can attempt to bend any undead creature within 50 feet to his will. The targeted undead must make a successful DC 23 Will save or fall under Soth’s control. This control is permanent for unintelligent undead, while undead with Intelligence scores are allowed an additional save every day to break free. A creature that successfully saves cannot be affected again by undead mastery for 24 hours. Soth can control 85 Hit Dice worth of undead. If he exceeds this number, he loses control over some of his minions, as per the spell animate dead.

Post Re: more Stat Blocks for my Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaign
Strahd was a soldier before he became a vampire, and he was a vampire before he became a necromancer.
I'd lower his mythic tier a couple ranks and give him a few warrior levels. I don't think he needs to have been a fighter, as he wasn't a PC at the time.

I do like adding Mythic to darklords. That might be a good way of giving them some scary oomf beyond class levels.
But waiting for that book to be released might be a good idea.

Post Re: more Stat Blocks for my Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaign
:oops: Yah. You might be right about that. I don't wanna step on anybody's toes or incur any bad Karma. I'll post em without the Epic tiers too then as a good gesture.

I always agreed that Strahd should have been a fighter or warrior. I've thought he could have been near 20 levels in a martial class after surviving so many skirmishes. He does mention in his journals that his strength is beginning to fail though. One of Strahd's main reason's for hating Sergei was his jealousy of his younger brother's vitality. Sergei was probably still no match for his grizzled old veteran of a big brother, but Strahd didn't care. He wanted a vital young woman, Tatyana, and he was no longer as young or as vital as he once was. I'm thinking maybe with all Strahd's dark dealings (Inajira and all) he may have come across some life draining undead. This would explain a loss of his warrior levels and the fact that he could have been even more kick ass as vampire (if it weren't for the undead) which adds to the irony of his immortality as a Darklord of Ravenloft.

Thanks Jester for noticing me. :)

I must admit I kind of like Strahd better this way. Pretty darn close to his stat block from Gazetteer I which I never had a problem with in edition 3/3.5. :)

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Blood Drain (Su) Strahd can suck blood from a grappled opponent; if he establishes or maintains a pin, he drains blood, dealing 1d4 points of Constitution damage. Strahd heals 5 hit points or gains 5 temporary hit points for 1 hour (up to a maximum number of 240 temporary hit points) each round he drains blood.
Children of the Night (Su) Once per day, Stahd can call forth 1d6+1 rat swarms, 1d4+1 bat swarms, or 2d6 wolves or worgs as a standard action. He may also summon 2d10 of his Strahd skeletons or 1d10 his Strahd zombies. These creatures arrive in 2d6 rounds and serve Strahd for up to 1 hour.
Closing the Borders (Su) When Strahd wishes to close his domain, a thick fog rises from the ground to surround Barovia. This fog has the same properties as the choking vapors that shroud the Village of Barovia. The ring of fog that surrounds the Village of Barovia and Castle Ravenloft is a lethal poison, one that infuses itself around a creature’s organs and lays dormant until an unfortunate soul attempts to escape the village. Any living creature that steps beyond the fog’s outer edge immediately suffers from frothing fits, suffering 1d4 points of temporary Constitution damage per hour until it dies (no saving throw). Lost Constitution returns only when the creature returns to within the ring. A Vistani with Knowledge (alchemy) skill can make an elixir (DC 25) that renders a creature immune to the fog’s effects for 10 minutes, long enough to pass through. The Vistani never allow giorgio to learn the elixir’s formula, and they deny their services to any travelers without hesitation if Strahd instructs them to do so. Strahd can dissipate the fog if he wishes, but he never does.
Create Spawn (Su) Strahd can create spawn out of those he slays with blood drain or energy drain, provided that the slain creature is of the humanoid type. The victim rises from death as a vampire in 1d4 days. This vampire is under the command of Strahd, and remains enslaved until his destruction. Strahd may have enslaved spawn totaling no more than 32 HD; any spawn he creates that would exceed this limit become free-willed undead. Strahd may free an enslaved spawn in order to enslave a new spawn, but once freed, a vampire or vampire spawn cannot be enslaved again.
Dominate (Su) Strahd can crush a humanoid opponent’s will as a standard action. Anyone Strahd targets must succeed on a Will save DC 30 or fall instantly under his influence, as though by a dominate person spell (caster level 12th). The ability has a range of 30 feet.
Energy Drain (Su) Strahd’s slam attack deals 3 negative levels on those hit. This ability only triggers once per round.
Gaseous Form (Su) As a standard action, Strahd can assume gaseous form at will (caster level 5th), but he can remain gaseous indefinitely and has a fly speed of 20 feet with perfect maneuverability. If reduced to 0 hit points in combat, Strahd assumes gaseous form and attempts to escape. He must reach his coffin home within 2 hours or be utterly destroyed. (Strahd can normally travel up to 9 miles in 2 hours.) Additional damage dealt to Strahd after he is forced into gaseous form has no effect. Once at rest, Strahd is helpless. He regains 1 hit point after 1 hour, then is no longer helpless and resumes healing at the rate of 6 hit points per round.
Grave Touch (Sp) As a standard action, Strahd can make a melee touch attack that causes a living creature to become shaken for 8 rounds. If Strahd touches a shaken creature with this ability, it becomes frightened for 1 round if it has fewer than 16 Hit Dice. Stahd can use this ability 10/day.
Master of the Realm (Su) Strahd may open or close the two main gates on the Old Svalich Road as a free action from anywhere in his domain. He has similar power over the gates and doors of Castle Ravenloft, where he also senses the entry of any creature with an Intelligence of at least 3. From anywhere in his domain and without concentrating, Strahd may control his horse-drawn carriage as if he were driving it. He can sense the presence of any creature with an Intelligence of at least 3 that comes within 30 feet of the carriage and can also sense when such a creature enters the carriage.
Life Sight (Su) Strahd gains blindsight to a range of 30 feet for 16 rounds per day. This ability only allows Strahd to detect living creatures and undead creatures. This sight also tells Strahd whether a creature is living or undead. Constructs and other creatures that are neither living nor undead cannot be seen with this ability.
Shadowless (Ex) Strahd casts no shadows and shows no reflection in a mirror.
Spider Climb (Ex) Strahd can climb sheer surfaces as though under the effects of a spider climb spell.
Vampire Weaknesses (Ex) Strahd can survive exposure to direct sunlight but every time he begins his turn in an area of direct sunlight he is nauseated, takes 10 points of damage, and loses his fast healing ability for that round. Strahd has also lost the following vampire weaknesses: garlic, holy symbols, and invitation. Running water still affects him. Each round of immersion in running water inflicts damage on Strahd equal to one third of his maximum hit points—If Strahd is reduced to 0 hit points in this manner he is destroyed. Stahd may also be instantly slain by driving a wooden stake through his heart while he is helpless (this is a full-round action). However, he returns to life if the stake is removed, unless his head is also severed and anointed with holy water.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Bardic Performance (Su or Sp) Harkon Lukas is trained to use the Perform skill to create magical effects on those around him, including himself if desired. He can use this ability 25 rounds per day. Each round, Harkon can produce any one of the types of bardic performance that he has mastered. Starting a bardic performance is a move action, but it can be maintained each round as a free action. Changing a bardic performance from one effect to another requires Harkon to stop the previous performance and start a new one as a standard action. A bardic performance cannot be disrupted, but it ends immediately if Lukas is killed, paralyzed, stunned, knocked unconscious, or otherwise prevented from taking a free action to maintain it each round. Harkon cannot have more than one bardic performance in effect at one time. Each bardic performance has audible components, visual components, or both. If a bardic performance has audible components, the targets must be able to hear the bard for the performance to have any effect, and such performances are language dependent. If deafened, Lukas has a 20% chance to fail when attempting to use a bardic performance with an audible component. If he fails this check, the attempt still counts against his daily limit. Deaf creatures are immune to bardic performances with audible components. If a bardic performance has a visual component, the targets must have line of sight to the bard for the performance to have any effect. If blinded, Lukas has a 50% chance to fail when attempting to use a bardic performance with a visual component. If he fails this check, the attempt still counts against his daily limit. Blind creatures are immune to bardic performances with visual components.
Countersong (Su): Harkon has learned to counter magic effects that depend on sound (but not spells that have verbal components). Each round of the countersong he makes a Perform (keyboard, percussion, wind, string, or sing) skill check. Any creature within 30 feet of Harkon (including himself ) that is affected by a sonic or language-dependent magical attack may use his Perform check result in place of its saving throw if, after the saving throw is rolled, the Perform check result proves to be higher. If a creature within range of the countersong is already under the effect of a non-instantaneous sonic or language-dependent magical attack, it gains another saving throw against the effect each round it hears the countersong, but it must use Harkon’s Perform skill check result for the save. Countersong does not work on effects that don’t allow saves. Countersong relies on audible components.
Dirge of Doom (Su): Harkon can use his performance to foster a sense of growing dread in his enemies, causing them to become shaken. To be affected, an enemy must be within 30 feet and able to see and hear Harkon’s performance. The effect persists for as long as the enemy is within 30 feet and Harkon continues his performance. This performance cannot cause a creature to become frightened or panicked, even if the targets are already shaken from another effect. Dirge of doom is a mind-affecting fear effect, and it relies on audible and visual components.
Distraction (Su): Harkon can use his performance to counter magic effects that depend on sight. Each round of the distraction, he makes a Perform (act, comedy, dance, or oratory) skill check. Any creature within 30 feet of Harkon (including himself) that is affected by an illusion (pattern) or illusion (figment) magical attack may use the his Perform check result in place of its saving throw if, after the saving throw is rolled, the Perform skill check proves to be higher. If a creature within range of the distraction is already under the effect of a non-instantaneous illusion (pattern) or illusion (figment) magical attack, it gains another saving throw against the effect each round it sees the distraction, but it must use Harkon’s Perform skill check result for the save. Distraction does not work on effects that don’t allow saves. Distraction relies on visual components.
Fascinate (Su): Harkon can use his performance to cause up to three creatures to become fascinated with him. Each creature to be fascinated must be within 90 feet, able to see and hear Harkon, and capable of paying attention to him. Harkon must also be able to see the creatures affected. The distraction of a nearby combat or other dangers prevents this ability from working. Each creature within range receives a Will save DC 21 to negate the effect. If a creature’s saving throw succeeds, Harkon cannot attempt to fascinate that creature again for 24 hours. If its saving throw fails, the creature sits quietly and observes the performance for as long as Harkon continues to maintain it. While fascinated, a target takes a –4 penalty on all skill checks made as reactions, such as Perception checks. Any potential threat to the target allows the target to make a new saving throw against the effect. Any obvious threat, such as someone drawing a weapon, casting a spell, or aiming a weapon at the target, automatically breaks the effect. Fascinate is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting ability. Fascinate relies on audible and visual components in order to function.
Inspire Competence (Su): Harkon can use his performance to help an ally succeed at a task. That ally must be within 30 feet and be able to hear Harkon. The ally gets a +3 competence bonus on skill checks with a particular skill as long as she continues to hear the bard’s performance. Harkon can’t inspire competence in himself. Inspire competence relies on audible components.
Inspire Courage (Su): Harkon can use his performance to inspire courage in his allies (including himself), bolstering them against fear and improving their combat abilities. To be affected, an ally must be able to perceive Harkon’s performance. An affected ally receives a +2 morale bonus on saving throws against charm and fear effects and a +2 competence bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls. Inspire courage is a mind-affecting ability. Inspire courage can use audible or visual components. Harkon must choose which component to use when starting his performance.
Suggestion (Sp): Harkon can use his performance to make a suggestion (as per the spell) to a creature he has already fascinated. Using this ability does not disrupt the fascinate effect, but it does require a move action to activate (in addition to the free action to continue the fascinate effect). Harkon can use this ability more than once against an individual creature during an individual performance. Making a suggestion does not count against Harkon’s daily use of bardic performance. A Will saving throw DC 22 negates the effect. This ability affects only a single creature. Suggestion is an enchantment (compulsion), mind affecting, language-dependent ability and relies on audible components.
Call to Arms (Su) Lukas carries a +1 longsword with the rage curse of a berserking sword. This sword was a “gift” from the Dark Powers, appearing in his hand when he became darklord of Kartakas. He can summon this sword into his waiting hand as a free action. This ability functions regardless of the sword’s current location or owner. Otherwise, this ability is similar to the spell instant summons, as though cast by a 14th-level sorcerer. Whenever Harkon enters combat in humanoid or hybrid form, the sword automatically appears in his hand and compels him to fight to the death. Once engaged, Harkon cannot change to dire wolf form until his enemies are dead. Harkon has adapted to his curse and uses the sword’s power to surprise his foes. His favorite trick is to give his sword to those he meets as a sign of “peaceful intentions”; should a combat start, it will instantly appear in Harkon’s hand no matter what they have done with it. Lukas’s sword cannot be removed from Kartakas.
Closing the Borders (Su) When Lukas wishes to seal his domain, a gentle lullaby fills the air at the borders of Kartakas Creatures crossing the border fall into a deep sleep (no saving throw), only to awaken in 1d6 x10 minutes a few feet inside the border of Kartakas. Neither plugging one’s ears nor magical silence protects a creature from the song. Even deaf creatures, creatures that do not require sleep, and creatures normally immune to mind-affecting effects, compulsions, enchantments, and sonic effects are affected by the song. The song cannot affect creatures without an Intelligence score, however.
Feral Allies (Su) Once per day, Lukas can call forth 3d4 dire wolves the wilds of Kartakas as a standard action by playing on his harp. The wolves arrive in 2d6 rounds and serve Lukas for up to one day. This is a sonic ability.
Master of the Forest (Su) Lukas can command any animal in Kartakas as the spell dominate animal cast by a 13th-level sorcerer. Using this ability requires no action on Lukas’s part, the animal receives no saving throw, and the control lasts as long as the darklord wills it. The animal must be within 100 feet of Lukas for him to establish control. All animals in Kartakas are under Lukas’s influence.
Sickness Gaze (Su) A creature within 30 feet that meets Lukas’s gaze is sickened for 8 rounds. Affected creatures can attempt a Fortitude save DC 19 to avoid the effects. Creatures that successfully save cannot be affected by that therianthrope’s gaze for one day. A delay poison or neutralize poison spell removes the effects from the sickened creature. Creatures that are immune to poison are unaffected, and creatures resistant to poison receive their normal bonus on their saving throw. Lukas is immune to his own sickness gaze and the sickness gaze of other dire wolfweres.
Song of Weariness (Su) When Lukas sings in humanoid or hybrid form, all creatures within a 90-foot radius must succeed at a Will save DC 23 or be slowed for 1d4+4 rounds as the spell cast by a 6th-level sorcerer. If the save is successful, the creature cannot be affected again by Lukas’s song for one day. This is a sonic, mind-affecting ability.
Trip (Ex) In dire wolf form, Lukas can trip an opponent hit by his bite attack as a free action. If the attempt fails, Lukas cannot be tripped in turn.
Undying Soul (Su) If Lukas is slain, his soul is instantly transferred into the body of the nearest dire wolf in Kartakas, regardless of distance, replacing the creature’s spirit. The dire wolf becomes a wolfwere and its ability scores change to match those of Lukas, who retains all of his skills, feats, and abilities.

Post Re: more Stat Blocks for my Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaign
Tiyet the pristine mummy. She was a bit challenging to convert. I gave her an ability similar to the corrupting touch ability of a ghost [but at half strength for her CR and with no save for half damage] to represent how she can kill a man with little effort.

SQ aura of evil, change shape (beast shape IV, Huge-sized white owl, monkey), detect disruption, sinkhole of evil, spontaneous casting (inflict)
Gear bracelets of dexterity +4, ring of shooting stars
SPECIAL ABILITIES
Closing the Borders (Su) When Tiyet wishes to close the borders of Sebua, a windstorm rises that exists only along the boundaries of her domain. Within this storm, stinging sand blocks all vision and inflicts 3d6 points of piercing damage each round to anyone attempting to leave Sebua.
Devour Heart (Su) Tiyet’s hands are imbued with the power to reach into the chest of a helpless opponent to tear out its still beating heart, causing instant death. This ability is similar to as a coup de-grace attack, but with no save. It still requires a full-round action to complete. After Tiyet uses this ability she is compelled to devour the heart taken while it still beats, requiring another full-round action. Most undead are unaffected by this ability, as are creatures with no heart, or bizarre anatomies.
Lethal Touch (Su) Tiyet’s touch inflicts 8d6 damage. This damage is not negative energy—it manifests in the form of a curse on her target’s physical health. Creatures that have immunity to curses do not take this damage; otherwise the damage bypasses all forms of damage reduction.
Draining Kiss (Su) If Tiyet kisses a willing participant she drains 1d4 points of Strength from that individual. Tiyet heals 5 points of damage to herself after such a kiss. This loss is permanent as long as the victim remains in Sebua.
Heart Attack (Su) Tiyet’s gaze can temporarily wreak havoc on the heart of an opponent within 60 feet, paralyzing it for 1d4 rounds.
Maddening Heartbeats (Su) The heartbeats of Intelligent creatures within 1 mile of Tiyet are audible to her until she feeds on them. This feeding is only a temporary respite though, as hours later she can hear the beats again, first faintly, then ever stronger. If Tiyet has not fed for 11 months she becomes sickened, as the sound becomes painfully loud, echoing inside her skull.
Mummify (Su) Tiyet can create lesser mummies. The embalming process and animation process takes a full day for each rank Tiyet wants the new mummy to possess. Tiyet can create mummies of lower rank than herself only. The created mummy is completely under Tiyet’s command.
Rejuvenation (Su) Tiyet is capable of drawing on the Positive Energy Plane to heal damage. If Tiyet rests for a full day, she begins rejuvenating at a rate of 12 hp/hour at the beginning of the following day. Tiyet must remain inert for at least one additional hour after she finishes her rejuvenation..

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Gnaw (Ex) A scarab beetle swarm deals 1 point of Strength damage in addition to its swarm damage. This Strength damage is doubled against creatures with no armor or natural armor bonus to AC, but creatures in heavy armor or with a natural armor bonus of +10 or greater are immune, as are creatures immune to critical hits or without flesh.
Distraction (Ex) Any living creature vulnerable to a scarab beetle swarm’s damage that begins its turn within a swarm’s squares is nauseated for 1 round. A Fortitude saving throw (DC 14) negates the effect. Even with a successful save, spellcasting or concentrating on spells within the area of a scarab beetle swarm requires a Concentration check (DC 20 + spell level). Using skills requiring patience and concentration requires a Will save (DC 20).

Post Re: more Stat Blocks for my Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaign
Took a few liberties with Elena. I don't necessarily believe she needs to be an anti-paladin in Pathfinder. I think the inquisitor class works a lot better and makes a lot of sense (in second edition, there weren't so many options as there are now for evil warriors who fell from grace). The Dark Powers could have just as easily replaced her inquisitor powers when she fell from grace. Otherwise, I based her on the stats I found in the editorial for Secrets of the Dread Realms on this site. I did give her an extra level too because it did a lot for her, raising most her bonuses from her class abilities. Her aura of despair is a gift from the Dark Powers (rather than an 8th-level antipaladin ability) because I felt she needed to keep it, since that's what she does she makes people despair. :elena:

Her mount was a lot of fun. I always assumed her unicorn would have been replaced with a shadow unicorn. In Denizens of Darkness the Phantasmal Forest of The Shadowlands Cluster is listed as one of this creatures' environments. I just made this beast her cohort, since she has no mount class feature. While she is riding her shadow unicorn she is still a lot more dangerous.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Closing the Borders (Su) When Elena wills it, the air around the borders of Nidala hazes over, obscuring vision with an inconstant waver. Those venturing into this murk find themselves wandering into insubstantial torture chambers. These illusions present the viewers as the main attraction, with teams of inquisitors working them over eagerly. The farther one progresses, the less the illusion fluctuates, and the more it seems to become real. Soon, wayfarers find themselves viewing the chamber through the eyes of its victims and feel a twinge of the pain the illusion depicts. If travelers are so foolish as to continue, it is likely they find themselves fully immersed in the illusion, except that it is no longer an illusion. Escapees from the domain wander from the border of the domain to its heart, the dungeons of Elena's castle.
Convert (Sp) At will, Elena can attempt to convert a foe to her side. The target must succeed at a DC 20 Will save or “see the light,” repenting their wicked ways and gladly joining Elena’s ranks. This effect acts as a powerful form of charm monster, except that Elena can only convert humanoids, and those who are converted will gladly die for her. If a target succeeds at its Will save, Elena cannot attempt to convert that creature again for 24 hours.
Despair (Su) Elena radiates a malign aura that causes enemies within 10 ft. of her to suffer a –2 morale penalty on all saving throws. Many Nidalans claim that when their Holy Protector is provoked by evil, she responds with a palpable fury; even the most wicked of beasts tremble before her righteous wrath.
Detect Alignment (Sp) At will, Elena can use detect chaos or detect law. She can only use one of these at any given time. Elena believes that she can still detect evil, as per the spell. Furthermore, she believes that the inability of other spellcasters in Ravenloft to detect evil is a sure sign of their spiritual impurity. In truth, Elena actually detects any strong emotions that target creatures may feel toward her. Sadly, this ability does not distinguish between emotions. Elena interprets both the burning hatred of her foes and the boundless love of a suitor as purest evil, and lashes out at each.
Discern Lies (Sp) Elena can discern lies, as per the spell, for 12 rounds per day. These rounds do not need to be consecutive. Activating this ability is an immediate action.
Detect Life (Sp) By concentrating for a full round, Elena can detect the thoughts of any humanoid within 60 ft. Elena cannot read the creature’s thoughts, but she can hone in on them to root out creatures that may be hiding. Targets within range can make a DC 20 Will save to escape detection. Magic effects that shield thoughts also prevent discovery. Intriguingly, this power cannot detect infants or the insane.
Greater Bane (Su) Elena can imbue one of her weapons with the bane weapon special ability as a swift action. Elena must select one creature type when she uses this ability (and a subtype if the creature type selected is humanoid or outsider). Once selected, the type can be changed as a swift action. The amount of bonus damage dealt by the weapon against creatures of the selected type is 4d6. This ability only functions while Elena wields the weapon. If dropped or taken, the weapon resumes granting this ability if it is returned to him before the duration expires. This ability lasts for 12 rounds per day. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.
Judgment (Su) Elena can pronounce judgment upon her foes as a swift action. Starting when the judgment is made, Elena receives a bonus or special ability based on the type of judgment made. Elena can use this ability 4/day. Once activated, this ability lasts until the combat ends, at which point all of the bonuses immediately end. Elena must participate in the combat to gain these bonuses. If she is frightened, panicked, paralyzed, stunned, unconscious, or otherwise prevented from participating in the combat, the ability does not end, but the bonuses do not resume until she can participate in the combat again. When Elena uses this ability, she selects two types of judgment to make. As a swift action, she can change these judgments to other types.
Destruction: Elena is filled with divine wrath, gaining a +5 profane bonus on all weapon damage rolls.
Healing: Elena is surrounded by a healing light, gaining fast healing 5. This causes Elena to heal 1 point of damage each round as long as she is alive and the judgment lasts.
Justice: This judgment spurs Elena to seek justice, granting a +3 profane bonus on all attack rolls. This bonus is doubled on all attack rolls made to confirm critical hits.
Piercing: This judgment gives Elena great focus and makes her spells more potent. This benefit grants a +5 profane bonus on concentration checks and caster level checks made to overcome a target’s spell resistance.
Protection: Elena is surrounded by a protective aura, granting a +3 profane bonus to Armor Class. This bonus is doubled against attack rolls made to confirm critical hits against Elena.
Purity: Elena is protected from the vile taint of her foes, gaining a +3 profane bonus on all saving throws. This bonus is doubled against curses, diseases, and poisons.
Resiliency: This judgment makes Elena resistant to harm, granting DR 3/good.
Resistance: Elena is shielded by a flickering aura, gaining 10 points of energy resistance against one energy type (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic) chosen when the judgment is declared.
Smiting: This judgment bathes Elena’s weapons in a divine light. Elena’s weapons count as magic, evil, and adamantine for the purposes of bypassing damage reduction.
Monster Lore (Ex) Elena adds her Wisdom modifier on Knowledge skill checks in addition to her Intelligence modifier, when making skill checks to identify the abilities and weaknesses of creatures.
Persistence (Su) Elena Faith-Hold hasn’t aged a day since becoming the darklord of Nidala. Though more than 150 years old, she is a beautiful woman, appearing as if she were still in her prime.
Solo Tactics (Ex): All of Elena’s allies are treated as if they possessed the same teamwork feats as her for the purpose of determining whether she receives a bonus from her teamwork feats. Her allies do not receive any bonuses from these feats unless they actually possess the feats themselves. The allies’ positioning and actions must still meet the prerequisites listed in the teamwork feat for the inquisitor to receive the listed bonus.
Stalwart (Ex) Elena can use mental and physical resiliency to avoid certain attacks. If she makes a Fortitude or Will saving throw against an attack that has a reduced effect on a successful save, she instead avoids the effect entirely. This ability can only be used if Elena is wearing light armor, medium armor, or no armor. Elena does not gain the benefit of the stalwart ability if she is considered helpless.

Closing the Borders (Su) When Tiyet wishes to close the borders of Sebua, a windstorm rises that exists only along the boundaries of her domain. Within this storm, stinging sand blocks all vision and inflicts 3d6 points of piercing damage each round to anyone attempting to leave Sebua.
Devour Heart (Su) Tiyet can attempt a coup-de grace on a paralyzed opponent as a full-round action. If successful she reaches into the victim’s chest and pulls out its still beating heart. She can devour the heart on the following round by taking another full-round action.
Corrupting Touch (Su) Tiyet’s touch inflicts 15d6 damage. This damage is not negative energy—it manifests in the form of physical wounds and aches from supernatural aging. Creatures immune to magical aging are immune to this damage, but otherwise the damage bypasses all forms of damage reduction. A Fortitude DC 26 save halves the damage inflicted.
Draining Kiss (Su) If Tiyet kisses a willing participant she drains 1d4 points of Strength from that individual. Tiyet heals 5 points of damage to herself after such a kiss. This loss is permanent as long as the victim remains in Sebua.
Heart Attack (Su) Tiyet’s gaze can wreak havoc on the hearts of all creatures with the humanoid type within 60 feet, that she can see or touch, paralyzing them for 1d4 rounds. Targets who do not meet Tiyet’s gaze must succeed at a DC 28 Will save to negate this effect. Meeting Tiyet’s gaze raises the DC to 30. If Tiyet touches her opponent the DC raises to 32.
Maddening Heartbeats (Su) The heartbeats of Intelligent creatures within 1 mile of Tiyet are audible to her until she feeds on them. This feeding is only a temporary respite though, as hours later she can hear the beats again, first faintly, then ever stronger. If Tiyet has not fed for 11 months she becomes sickened, as the sound becomes painfully loud, echoing inside her skull.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
Gnaw (Ex) A scarab beetle swarm deals 1 point of Strength damage in addition to its swarm damage. This Strength damage is doubled against creatures with no armor or natural armor bonus to AC, but creatures in heavy armor or with a natural armor bonus of +10 or greater are immune, as are creatures immune to critical hits or without flesh.
Distraction (Ex) Any living creature vulnerable to a scarab beetle swarm’s damage that begins its turn within a swarm’s squares is nauseated for 1 round. A Fortitude saving throw (DC 14) negates the effect. Even with a successful save, spellcasting or concentrating on spells within the area of a scarab beetle swarm requires a Concentration check (DC 20 + spell level). Using skills requiring patience and concentration requires a Will save (DC 20).


The CR feels right.

She's never been a cleric before. Why did you decide to do that?

Where has the deflection bonus come from? You've built her as a combination of ghost and mummy haven't you? Or is it the template from RL3e. I can't tell.

She originally had SR, so you might want to add some.

You might want to comment on the fact that ripping out someone's heart will kill most living creatures (a la the description of the vorpal weapon) - coup de grace with no save for example.

I'd change the description of corrupting touch so it's not about aging, but a curse, and creature immune to curses are protected. And it's due to damage to the heart.

Check the gaze ability in the Bestiary, and something else with gaze attacks (like the vampire) to get a better feel for how the phrasing of the ability should work.

I think you've forgotten her change shape ability (turn into a monkey).

Otherwise, it looks good. You've captured her essence; you just need to finesse her abilities a little more.

I agree Elena shouldn't be an antipaladin, but I'm not sure I would have made her an inquisitor. I'll have to think about that one. Are you saying she started out as a paladin and turned into an inquisitor through Powers checks, or she was always an inquisitor?

Also, you've said she's male in the stat block. I don't mind, but she may execute you for heresy. :)

Post Re: more Stat Blocks for my Pathfinder/Ravenloft campaign
Thanks for the feedback Ryan. :lol: You cracked me up a couple of times.

You made a lot of good points too. I was hoping someone would edit me. I'm really nuts about getting these characters right, but I'm rusty on Ravenloft and maybe a little too hasty at times. I'm dangerously close to failing as a jedi padawan.

I was especially hoping someone would notice me trying to adapt Tiyet's stats because I needed a little help. I don't wanna break cannon too much, but you kind of have too sometimes. I did swap out a few mummy abilities with ghost ones for instance. Good sleuthing! I also decided to give her a few cleric levels assuming that she picked up a few things from Zordenahkt [the cleric of Apophis] during their torrid affair. She was obsessed with her own mummification as a way of saving her from an afterlife of torment. Maybe she swore her allegiance to Apophis/Apep hoping the demon would let her off easy in the end of days [when Apep finally defeated Ra] that Zordenahkt surely spoke of.......As for Tiyet's monkey form, it is listed in parenthesis next to her change shape ability under SQ. I'll probably start revising her based on your suggestions tonight.

I really stick by Elena being an inquisitor. In my campaign I would say she was from the beginning. She just started getting carried away and lost sight of who her enemies were, so Belenus abandoned her and the dark powers stepped in.

Otherwise I don't really disagree with any of your comments except for Elena being Male. That one was intentional. :wink:

I edited Tiyet and Elena above....any better? Thank you again for your advice.

Good.

In this version, Tiyet's lost the heart attack paralysation touch attack (it's now restricted to her gaze). I think that's probably the best option, since if you combine that with her normal touch attack, she'd be absolutely lethal.

As another option, you could used nauseated instead of sickened, because that has most of the downsides of paralysis except your PCs can run away if they have to. :) It also means remove paralysis won't remove the condition (which is fair, because it's not really paralysis, it's crippling pain from heart palpitations). But that's just a suggestion.

I'll have to look at Elena later, but Tiyet looks pretty good to me.

Didn't change anything except for Elena's sex. :oops:

Thanks again Ryan for taking the time to comment. :)

OK. The evil puppet. I kind of like him. "The Created" was a memorable adventures according to my one of my old players. He actually suggested to me that I should work out Maligno's stats. I kind of got stuck on mechanics of the silver needle ability. The effects of having paralyzed limbs were never clarified [any thoughts on this are appreciated]. I guess its one of those things that's just left to the DM to adjudicate. So here he is......Oh and thanks again to Ryan Naylor for helping me work out the kinks in Guiseppe's "perfect puppet".

SQ detect disruption, rogue talents (bleeding attack, combat trick), sinkhole of evil, trapfinding +2
Gear folding straight razor, quiver of 10 silver needles
SPECIAL ABILITIES
Closing the Borders (Su) When Maligno wishes to seal the borders of Odiare, the village's streets twist back upon themselves like the thoughts of a madman. Creatures who attempt to enter the Mists will find themselves reentering the domain on one of the village's other streets.
Immunity to Magic (Ex) Maligno is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance, with the exception of spells and spell-like abilities that have the Fire descriptor, which affect him normally. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.
• Warp wood or wood shape slows Maligno (as the slow spell) for 2d6 rounds (no save).
• Repel wood drives Maligno back 60 feet and deals 2d12 points of damage to him (no save).
• A magical attack that deals cold damage breaks any slow effect on Maligno and heals 1 point of damage for every 3 points of damage the attack would otherwise deal. If the amount of healing would cause Maligno to exceed his full normal hit points, he gains any excess as temporary hit points. Maligno gets no saving throw against attacks that deal cold damage.
Paralysis (Su) A creature struck by one of Maligno’s needles must make a Will save DC 15 or the limb pierced by the needle is paralyzed. On a critical hit, two limbs are paralyzed. The effect of the paralysis is determined by the limb affected; Maligno can choose which limb is pierced by his needles.
1 arm—The victim can't perform tasks requiring two hands and drops anything held in that hand.
2 arms—The victim drops anything held in their hands and can't perform tasks requiring the use of their arms. They
lose their Dex bonus to AC and suffer an additional -2 penalty to AC. They are sickened.
1 leg—The victim gains the entangled condition.
2 legs—The victim falls prone, gains the entangled condition and is flat footed. If both arms are still functional, they can drag themselves at half speed as a full round action; otherwise, they can only drag themselves 5 ft as a full round action.
3 limbs (of any kind)—As well as suffering the relevant conditions described above, the victim is exhausted.
4 limbs—The victim is paralyzed.
A needle can be removed as a move equivalent action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity and requires one hand. The effects of the paralysis fade 1d4 rounds after the needle is removed.
Undying Soul (Ex) Provided he has not been reduced to less than half of his maximum hit points, Maligno can be repaired by his fellow carrionettes. A carrionette may repair one hit point per round as a full round action that provokes an attack of opportunity. Up to 4 carrionettes may attempt to repair Maligno simultaneously. Guiseppe can also repair Maligno, and even rebuild him from nothing. As a full round action provoking an attack of opportunity, Guiseppe can repair 1d6 hit points for Maligno. If Maligno is destroyed, Guiseppe can build him a new body in 24 hours. Without killing the old man, it may be impossible to permanently destroy Maligno.
