    I certainly didn't know any of these phobias existed. I'm starting to feel quite normal and that's not a good thing. I blow up planets when I'm normal...

    By this point, some forumites have gotten Sixth and Seventh Anniversary badges. That's more badges than there are Tears of Bhaal!

    Maybe it was a particularly emotive day for him :)

    Dnd 5th Edition demilich fun facts:

    * Monsters in the 5th Edition Monster Manual have their Hit Dice listed along with the average HP the monster would have (so a DM who doesn't want to roll tons of dice per monster can just take the average of the HP roll). But demiliches, which have 20d4 hit points, have their maximum hit points (80) listed rather than the average of 20d4 (50). I'm not sure whether this was intended or a typo. Other powerful monsters (e.g. liches) have their average hit points listed.

    * In 5th Edition, normal demiliches have a lower challenge rating than liches. Normal demiliches in 5th Edition don't have spells or that annoying Imprisonment ability. However, the Monster Manual also mentions a special version of demilich that does have the Imprisonment ability (though it does offer a save); these demiliches are the same challenge rating as liches.

    * In 5th Edition, the Wand of Orcus, when used by Orcus, allows him to permanently summon 500 hit points worth of undead creatures (using their average hit points) per day, and supposedly he can summon any kind of undead with it.

    But this implies he could create 10 demiliches per day! Yikes! If we go by the Monster Manual and say that the demiliches actually use their maximum hit points, that still means Orcus can summon 6 demiliches per day.

    While it's certainly reasonable for Orcus to be able to create a lich or a demilich, it does seem ridiculous for him to be able to create a bunch of them in one day. If he can create 10 demiliches per day, and there are 365 days in a year, and Orcus has been around for who know how many thousand years... that's a lot of demiliches! :#

    Well, technically he's summoning them, not creating them. I guess there would be a limit to the actual number of demiliches in the realms (they are 'very rare' I assume). Also, summoning doesn't mean keeping them around forever either. They'd probably just help him out with whatever he summoned them for and politely (or maybe not so politely) go their way afterward...

    Humans have an amazing capacity to spread trash :) Well when the moon invaders destroy Earth in the 30th century I'll be here to watch. :)

    A strawberry is a nut, and a cucumber is a berry.

    I'm pretty sure Strawberry is an aggregate fruit.
