Location: Caverns, Deep Caverns

Total Skill Points: 1065
Skill Cap: 16
Combat Skill Level: 16
Sentience Class: Sentient

Description: Massive and grey-skinned, the Stone Dragon is a powerful beast who excels at martial combat. They are generally reclusive, believing firmly in solitude and are not afraid to crush anyone who infringes upon their peace. They can be irritable, but very rational, and will use their strength to their advantage, frequently intimidating and extorting others before going on the offensive. As many dragons, the Stone Dragons will collect private hordes of wealth, but are not greedy enough to seek it out at the expense of others, especially if that means they are forced to leave their remote sanctuaries. The Stone Dragon understands its own limitations, but is prideful. If it is forced into a conflict greater than it's own power it will fight to the death. Its tremendous endurance and willpower will keep it alert even if knocked unconscious, and it is capable of surviving even grave injuries.

Ahaha! The Glorious Emprire of Bastion kicked its ass and left it quivering in the canyon... of course anything is easier with a full army of undead fodder to soak hit and grant whelm bonus. Tusks likes things that parry.
I like the example of skill points spent on abilities. I need that to help me make it more balanced. I will apply that and some of the other stats to help me update Nah'Yatak before I post him.
I also like have the skill cap in the title, that helps to organize. Mayhap I posted things too soon.
Recoil of 1 hour, though, for the breath? How is a dragon to raze a village then fend off adventurers? If that is common for dragons, Tusks would have beat the crap out of the beast sooner. I think the PCs need the fear of the breath. Afterall, that is what makes a dragon a Dragon...well that and the lizardly appearance...and sentience, and intelligence, and treasure, and .......!
Wait! Treasure! We freaking passed over the hoard didn't we?! Didn't we?! Oh, damn my poor leadership skills and fear of dark holes! We went through so much work to AVOID our haul! Maybe now at least he won't chase us.

Heh. I didn't want to point out that you missed the swag, it saved me the effort of actually working out the magic items, and you guys are drawing that campaign to a close anyway.

But yeah. I used that monster gen excel file to get his points all straightened out. It automates it so that you don't have to put so much time and effort into building them. It will even tell you the combat skill level, (which I have in parenthesis on the post title, (see! 16!)

It would be a good idea to edit the combat skill level into the title of your topics, just so that the DM's can see what level they are to gauge their strength against the PC's.

I guess that its alright then. I just want Tusks to rock even harder than he already does. As we are closing this campaign, I really want to have him as an NPC in Tenpat so that the Harem can bump into him. Maybe the whole little group. I wonder what I can do with them if I controlled them as a team. Updating Rollin as if he had just finished a battle with totem characters so fully upgraded, having Lizno work cohesively with the....nah, I don't want to lose out on the dynamics. That is what makes it fun. I can't see a gheist as a character without Lizno's apathy now.
