My players from Middle School can tell you, I have a thing for skeletons.
They don’t have to be one hit wonders. Most tend to be that way in fantasy roleplaying games. Paizo’s Pathfinder 2E Book of the Dead is proof of that. Many of my favorite skeletons/skeletal constructs in any game tend to go way beyond that 1d8 hp, AC 7, rusty longsword, and decayed armor skeleton.
The Pitch: At first it was like any other plague of undead with skeletons and zombies rising from the grave and attacking all throughout the province. But then something disturbingly eerie happened- the skeletons were suddenly hard as rock. They weren’t animated bone at all. They had become a warped amalgam of elemental and necromantic magics. It’s up to the group to stop them.
This could actually branch out into a three-five adventure mini-series with lots of undead encounters. What would it end in? Probably a draco-lich or demi-lich.
Thanks for stopping by. Lots to do. I can’t believe a third of the month has passed by already.
