Dndeviants

Rocks fall. Roll reflex.
Ok, so this hit me while checking the new art from Dndeviants, and saw the Long Horn piece (www.deviantart.com/art/longhor…) and the first thing (as a Texan) to pop into my head was cowboys, then the opening to the criminally overlooked cartoon Cowboys of Moo Mesa began in my head, and now all I'm thinking about is playing a minotaur gunslinger that abides to uphold the law... and I have to admit, I kinda squeed.
With that being said, I am now absolutely intrigued by what anybody else has tried, those odd race and class mixes, may they be homebrewed or from the PHB, that resulted in an intriguing and/or ridiculous character that made you hyped to play them. I'm not talking about characters that you played, btw, and built up a wonderful tale of heroism and hilarity. I mean that character concept you made and from day one were jumping for joy to play.
So, I've been juggling this question around in my head, because it was something hinted at at the beginning of the campaign, but I am thinking of, if the situation plays out that way, for a soldier PC to be captured by a mercenary band and given to a main baddy who has been transforming kidnapped citizens into lycantropic monsters to sell as living weapons. Now, the premise is the character, Hoslyn, is trying to chase after her friend, who is being pursued by his own issues, and she is ambushed by a mercenary group that she used to work for (and essentially led to their dismemberment). She is infamous to mercenary group, and thus they try to take her out and sell her to the baddy, seeing that fate worse than death. Now, from what she chooses as far as which animal (which of course she won't realize she picks until she's cursed), she will have a different path to controlling her new form (i.e. werewolf leads to a path of revenge/forgiveness, werebear leads to acceptance/revulsion, etc.). Now, within the story, these are not the perfected, weakness-to-silver-only lycanthrope since they are being produced artificially, so I was thinking of treating it like raging, giving her resistance as well as a new form with different attacks. Now, obviously, she may not have full control over her new form, and may even sporadically change due to triggers, so I was thinking about 1) if this is a good, fun and realistic idea, 2) what sort of wisdom saving throw DC to use (maybe use the "spirit" of the lycanthrope to make opposing roles), and 3) what kind of triggers, if any, to use.

So, in my smaller campaign (the one without the Euclidean horrors and intervening gods), my party is at lvl 2 (about to be lvl 3) and I was wondering, at this point, what sort of magical items they could run across. I plan to give them a bag of holding in their next quest, but beyond that, I'm not too sure. At the start, I don't want to give them many, if any at all, stat-boosting items. I actually am far more interested in giving them tool-based magic items, like, for instance, (legit off the top of my head) the reoccurring pebble, a pebble that returns to you every time you toss it. At first, that seems absolutely useless until you think about traps, distractions and other situations that, if you have something small to throw, could help out, and since it returns upon being thrown, it becomes a useful tool (maybe give it five charges per day so they don't overuse it). This can be straight from the books or just homebrew (though, homebrew seem far more interesting, cuz regular people are beautifully weird). So, any ideas? Thanks!
First off, thanks everyone who checked out the last blog post and offered help on what I should do. You are really awesome and my party officially hates all of you. :)

Second! What happened. So, essentially what I decided on happening is having the team go in alone at first, taking out the ogre monster,  as well as the grimlock and the 3 manes that spawning from it. They got smacked around a little to soften them up, and then the succubus joined in, after being attacked by a mysterious stranger who was able to burn away her other-worldly protection against material-plane weapons with an arrow. After another battle to soften them up, the succubus then morphed into a succubus/troll tree monster, who was able to use an AoE charm to capture most of the team except for the team sorceress. Before the creature could kill them (hold on, it'll happen) the paladin comes in to save them staving off the monster and allowing the party to recover from their charm. However, having been fighting other monsters while the team tackled the main threat, he is already wounded and over-exerted, trying his best to stave off the beast, dealing around 30 points of damage, which the creature insta-heals from and then dishes out 20+ points, essentially shredding into the paladin. While taking out the monster's exposed roots, the source of the monster's healing, the druid and ranger do their best to support and heal the paladin while trying to drag him away from the fight, though he does push them back, signifying his willingness to die to give them more time. After destroying the roots and knocking her down to certain hp, she then rips herself from the earth and goes straight for the gunslinger due to being god-touched and drops him in one turn, ripping into his chest and then biting down and tossing him like a rag doll. Total silence until "YOU KILLED HIM!!!" After alleviating fears that he was KO'd and not insta-killed, the paladin then eventually surprises the monster, calling down a favor of his god Bahamut, catching himself in the explosion of energy, sending him flying, KO'd as well. Although still alive, the creature is then impeded from Bahamut's attack, the team able to attack and dispatch the monster without anymore losses, the druid, meanwhile, performing MASH-level meatball surgery to keep both the gunslinger and the paladin from dying. In the end, the ranger was able to get the last shot in, killing the monster before anyone else was harmed.

It was their most intensive fight since the first session, and from this alone they were able to get up to lvl 4 (although they did get the experience points, I was threatened with my life if they didn't get to lvl 4). So yeah, some nearly died and they feared for their lives. GG :)

In case anyone is wondering, I've attempted to renew super group status for us, but DA stole my money and hasn't made the change yet T_T. I've submitted a help ticket and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Typically if something sits for a long period of time it's because it doesn't meet the submission rules for the group.

DM taunts us with phrases like that....

Fighting undead? "What WAS your level?"

Fighting elementals? "What WAS in your inventory?" 

Ergh.

Sorry for the excessively late reply, the admins all had *life* happen to them around the same time so we have had very few people approving new submissions. I will be around for a while approving new memberships and trying to approve some artist submissions as well. Apologies for the hiatus.
