Hopefully, this thread is exempt from normal anti-necromancy rules. It should be. (Or maybe I'm thinking of GitP's forum rules.)

I'm using a dungeon from Dragon Magazine issue 81 for Sephira and Co's next task. In one room it lists a "guardian familiar" from the 1e Fiend Folio as the resident monster for the room. I have been unable to find existing stats for a cat-shaped guardian familiar in 3.5e, so here they are:

Scout Guardian-
Tiny construct
HD 2d10 (11 hp)
Initiative- +2
Speed- 30 feet
Armor class- 18 (+2 size, +2 dex, +4 natural), touch 14, ff 12
Base attack/ grapple- +1/-11
Attack- claws +4* melee (d2-4)
Full attack- 2 claws +4 melee (d2-4) and bite -1 melee (d3-4)
Space/reach- 2.5’/0’
Special attacks- none
Special qualities- construct traits, DR 5/-, darkvision 60’, fast healing 1, find master, low light vision
Saves- fort +0, ref +2, will +0
Abilities- Str 3, Dex 15, Con -, Int -; Wis 10, Cha 1
Skills- none
Feats- none
Environment- any
Organization: solitary
Challenge rating: 4
Treasure: none
Alignment- neutral
Advancement- 3-4 HD (tiny); 5-6 HD (small)

Scout familiars are normally employed to conduct reconnaissance or to distract enemy spellcasters. Although from a distance they look like normal cats, up close (within 10’, presuming good lighting conditions), they are clearly constructs. Basic scout guardian familiars are the size of a large house cat and weigh about 12 pounds. As part of their construction they are covered with the hide of a cat, and so in passing may be mistaken for one.

Skills- cat guardian familiars have +4 racial bonuses on climb, hide (+8 in tall grass or heavy undergrowth, move silently; +8 racial bonus on jump checks, and +8 to disguise checks (only against spot checks to determine if the guardian familiar is a normal cat or not). They use their dexterity modifier for jump and climb checks. (yeah normally constructs don't have skill bonuses, got it.)

Combat-

As a familiar, the scout guardian’s BAB is normally that of its master. It uses its dexterity modifier to attack rolls instead of its strength.

Find master- no matter the distance, as long as it is on the same plane, the scout guardian can find its master.

Construct trait- as per the normal immunities and "is not subject to" lines.

Episode XXXII- No more snakes to stab. Probably.

I DM'd this session while on a commercial airline flight. Sooo bucket list item checked off, I guess.

Episode XXXI- Mo’ Snakes, Mo’ Stabbing and Screaming and Shooting and Spells

All the yuan-ti are dead except for the one who had the sense to run away. I don't know whether I'll make him a recurring villain or not, but it sounds like a good idea.

Sephira and Co, Day 194

Episode XXX: The Double Triple Cross, or Dos Tres Equis. Snakes.

Edit- I just realized (10 December 23) that I messed up numbering for the sessions.

Please note the commentary about getting four mooks down to exactly 0 hit points. It was more than a little odd to see.

Today, we got to see the rarest of events: a monk make use of her slow fall ability. Even if it wasn't within arm's reach of a wall. Cause you know what? When else is she gonna use it?

Sephira and Co, Day 193

The campaign will focus more or less exclusively on Sephira for a while, so that we can catch her up to what's happening in Geoff....and because there's a specific event that doesn't occur until she gets back, which was also a driver for putting all the other groups on pause or writing then out entirely.

Episode XXVII- Ghost Snakes

Zodhunters, Day 180

Final session for the Zodhunters, at least as far as this campaign is concerned. I might pick them up again after the Against the Giants campaign is concluded, but a better plan is to convince one of the other players to DM them so that I can use Cyr as a PC.

On a geographical note, Veluna in the homebrew campaign is northeast of Gran March, similar to the official Greyhawk world maps, although it is shaped completely differently.

This of course leaves Sephira and her Quest, as well as the Most Ancient and Original Group, both of whom have a long way to go.

Zodhunters, Day 180

Thessa's player couldn't make it, hence why she stayed out of the dungeon.

Zodhunters, Day 180

Now it's the Zodhunter's turn, although in their case they're just leaving the region, cause they weren't really that involved. This brings us down to two parties (MAOG and Sephira), with the possibility of creating a third out of parts from Team Elf and Team Dwarf. We'll see.

Team Elf, Day 183

This is the last Team Elf session, but the same thing as Team Dwarf, once a Major Plot Point occurs, these characters will become available for use again, mixing and matching with Team Dwarf (and maybe one other party) at the appropriate time.

Oooh, looky, playing Against the Giants two weeks in a row, how neat! This may or may not be the second to last Team Elf session, we'll see.

Team Dwarf, Day 187

This is the last Team Dwarf session, although various characters will likely show up later as NPCs.

Team Dwarf, Day 183

We're putting some effort into closing off 2-3 of the Against the Giants groups (for later simplicity), so there are likely 1-2 more Team Dwarf sessions after this one, at least prior to a Major Plot Event.
