Yep, which makes this the line of reasoning that's most R+L=J type "dramatic reveal" - it would dramatically shake up the underpinnings of the world.If it's a greek Demigod or something then it might be a four-color being.
Which means, with the Dark One, that the newly made world might be FIVE colors. Even more real than reality.
Something like that? I have no idea how they managed to find a way, but this is 3.x we're talking about....as an Ex action?
Depends on when you look. The turn around was pretty slow with War & XPs (the first I was getting right away), but the system has smoothed out since. The problem this time is that printing in China is a bit more problematic these days, which is likely why Rich has the pre-orders up now for a December release. It clocks in at 352 pages, so we're probably down to maybe 15 pages of updates now.In the past, how long did it take before the last strip included in a book, and the book actually appearing?
Has he?Rich has stated about five times the MitD is in the Monster Manual.
But haven't there been several characters that are supposed to have seen and recognised him?I think, given the revelation of the significance of the Astral Plane in Rich's cosmology, that the MiTD's connection to it (it feels like home) indicate that the MiTD is a fictional creation.
wait, wait, I don't just mean tautologically so: I mean that it's most likely NOT inherently part of the OOTSverse. Which is to say I don't think it has a Monster Manual entry.
So my best bet is that it's part of Greek mythology that hasn't been D&D-ified, and thus somehow tied to the Snarl or the dead Pantheon - explaining why it's not just absurdly strong and tough (which is why Xykon keeps it around) but also has secret mystical powers they don't know about.
At least Xykon, Redcloak, and the hunters who trapped him in the first place (though they were surprised by his location and ability to talk, or maybe to talk Common, I forget.)But haven't there been several characters that are supposed to have seen and recognised him?
