Pixels & Polyhedrals: The Witch

After much tweaking and great advice from a few of my favorite peeps on twitter, I have finalized The Witch. She is by far my favorite turn out of the P&P series so far, I’m sad to say that I haven’t DM’d in a few months so looking at monster stat blocks isn’t something I’ve been readily doing for some time now. I do believe makes me a bit “rusty” on top of not being a pro monster creator to begin with so tonight I broke out the MM3 and actually used some reference material and I’m much more pleased with the turn out. It makes me want to go back and tweak my existing L4D zombies, which I will but for now you’re going to have to settle. I’ll be releasing fully tweaked and updated images in a downloadable pack at the end of the month. That’s right I’m using the WoTC method – “I know the old ones are not as good, so here’s a new one that’s better we’ll fix the rest later” only I’m not selling you anything, so be happy!

Anyway, a bit more on this angry little lady – I tried to convey her utter speed in which she can drop a characters health from full to zero in no time flat with a hefty claw attack that’s a minor action. Also just like in the game I gave her a hefty dose of HP and speed, because you can dump an entire clip or two into her before she falls in the video game. Unless you’re playing on easy that is. Wuss.  Any of you who haven’t seen the witch in a Left 4 Dead game, take a peek at this short video, I do believe it portrays her destructive prowess rather accurately. Now I know I said I wasn’t going to do this, but I’ve just got to – for science. If you’d like a shot of what one might look like in real life. Here’s a freeze frame of  Jenna Jameson from the movie  Zombie Strippers. I hope someone puts her to use in one of their games, if you do – please let me know how things turn out!
