PostPosted: Fri Oct 13, 2006 2:36 pm    Post subject: Quick 1st Ed. Question. . .

I'm running an oldskool module where my mid-level PC group is about to enter a room containing a deck of many things. At first, I decided to remove it altogether, then I changed my mind. What the heck, I can't coddle them forever. Besides, some of them have read the DMG and can opt out of drawing anyway. Well, here's the problem.

#1. What if they draw the "Minor Death" card? Hm? The stats for the encounter aren't complete in neither the 1st ed. DMG or the 2nd ed. DMG.

#2. What level does this monster save at vs. spells?

#3. If it's treated as undead with respect to spells, does this mean it can be turned?

#4. Is there any other published data on the Minor Death, like Planescape stats or something?

#5. It never misses??? What about Mirror Image or Armor of Etherealness?

Thanks!

Well, back in the day, I used the stats for a standard wraith...but bumped up a bit to match the level of the PCs. I ruled that it could not be turned, and yes, it never misses...mirror image or whatnot notwithstanding - after all, it IS a minor death.

Personally, I'd cheat and remove the card and sidestep the whole issue or substitute some insanely high-level undead. Razz
