New Monster

Well, new to us anyway, as the little monster recently adopted my wife and me.

Felis Catus (House Cat)
Hit Dice: 1-1
Armor Class: 4 [15]
Attacks: 2 claws (1d2), 1 bite (1d4)
Saving Throw: 17
Special: Ambush, Gaze Attack
Move: 24
Alignment: Chaotic Adorable

Felis Catus is noticeably smaller than great predators such as the lion or the tiger. However, his tremendous speed and agility make him difficult to handle. Though low in hit dice, he is excellent at hiding under beds and couches and from such ambush positions he automatically surprises his quarry and obtains a +4 bonus to hit. A successful ambush attack does double damage against any normal target and quadruple damage against a human wearing socks. More dangerous than his ambush, however, is Felis Catus' gaze attack which acts as a charm person spell. Hapless humans suffer -4 to their saving throws against the gaze. Anyone failing the save must take the cat in, provide him with food and shelter, and regularly scratch him under the chin.

Another Map Day

Got up this morning, paid some bills, did some taxes, then spent the afternoon mapping.

Map made with "Hexographer" and "Microsoft Picture It."

Something to use in the future as a really, really small sandbox environment, or else as a single point in a larger point-to-point map.

Interesting Videos on Torches

Taking it slowly this morning, drinking coffee, reading blogs, and browsing youtube. I found a couple of videos by Lindybeige on the use of torches outdoors...

and indoors...

which I enjoyed and thought I'd pass on.
