EZG reviews NPC Arsenal: Troll Witchdoctor
This new series by Abandoned Arts offers you one NPC-build, a complex one – 3 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page SRD, 1 page character, so what do we get here?
Well, we get a beastmorph alchemist 6/Gravewalker Witch 2 Troll for a CR of 12! Troll physical prowess plus beastform mutagen + buffing + enhanced spell/alchemy-empowered regenerative properties supplemented by smart item-choices make this one memorable BEAST of a character! Add to that a smart spell-selection that allows for the purchase of time for the buffing suite and the information on build and tactical notes provided should guarantee that your PCs will NOT forget ending on the business end of this shaman’s longspear (or bite!). And yes, he can fight until -47 HP and has a good chance to negate crits – I can see players crying “WHY WON’T HE DIE!!!”
Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn’t notice any glitches. Layout adheres to a landscape two-column standard and the pdf has no bookmarks, but needs none at this length.
OMG – THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is a prime example of a damn cool, smart build -memorable, deadly, versatile and thoughtful, this creature is GOLD. Ever wanted to go Resident Evil: Nemesis on your players? Yeah, this one’s pretty close – and gloriously so! The Aasimar was neat, this troll is glorious: 5 stars + seal of approval and well worth the fair asking price!
