Have you seen this?

A couple months ago Thomas over at Original Edition Fantasy posted Aaron Allston's extended stat chart from Wrath of the Immortals.

I'm normally not that interested in the whacked out high end of D&D, preferring to whack out on the lower levels. So I might have seen this chart before and not paid any attention to it whatsoever.

I think this chart cought my eye this time because I've been seriously considering making a high level killer dungeon, something in the Tomb of Horrors genre but with a higher monster:trap ratio. This is one of those "well, I've never done that before, I wonder if I can?" sort of ideas I get sometimes. I wouldn't actually use the chart above, it's just thinking this idea has me surveying the field of crazy high level D&D.

If I did make such a dungeon, it wouldn't be suitable for a Fight On! article or lulu publication, since I would totally be using material from Arduin and other ridiculous high level sources. So it would be a free PDF and maybe some outlaw ashcans.


  1. Man, a Charisma of 100 only gets you 24 retainers Max? One would think you'd have more.

    Unless that number refers to larger population bodies...

    "Phil, what henchmen does Kozar the Immaculate have?"

    "Let's see: Sweden, the Bahamas, Australia, Mars, the Horsehead Nebula, and Des Moines."

  2. The chart could come in handy for your Wind Dukes idea, should the party find itself staring one down.

  3. @Amityville Mike: Bear in mind its the RotI ability chart. Those 24 retainers are (probably) lesser gods in their own right.

    Ah, RotI. Now there was a gonzo set-up if ever there was one. Still saner than the Epic Level Joke Book though.

  4. What's so special about this "extended" stat sheet? It appears in the Wrath of the Immortals anyway.
