    Pardon my typo, was definitely meant to read 1E...

    I was also mistaken on the Therianthrope (aka anthromorphs or weretherions): it is from Tome of Horrors, not Advanced Bestiary.

    Saying that someone reading RAW differently than you is "home brewing or house ruling, but that's fine" doesn't make you right, it just makes you seem pompous.

    In the "horribly misleading" category, you have the "Hydra Slaying Strike" martial maneuver.

    Which is, specifically, entirely useless against actual hydras.

    The Rod of Viscid Globs is its long-neglected fellow king of innuendo.

    Sadly, in 5e it got a thickness downgrade, it's only a Wand of Viscid Globs now.

    IIRC I think it's actually derived from an old sci-fi story where "Derro" was the name of a race of evil robots or cyborgs. Which also doesn't fit, otner than the fact the cyborgs lived underground.

    "Phlogiston" from the Spelljammer setting does almost exactly the opposite of the thing it is named after. In the now discredited phlogiston theory of fire, fires in enclosed spaces ceased when phlogiston had saturated the air. The phlogiston from phlogiston theory was basically a deoxy group imagined as a particle, whereas Spelljammer's phlogiston is a superoxidizer

    They're force dinosaurs, so it's not too far off. And it's un-typed damage over time that you move with a free action. That's much better than any 3rd level damage spell I know of. Even at half the damage in a single round. Plus it's a druid spell, not a wizard spell. Arguably and/or by fluff it might be subject to DR though. That part's not very clear and could make it weaker. I think 5th or 6th level is fair, maybe 4th or 5th if DR applies.

    you don't even have to leave the druid list to find a better damage dealing force spell at 3rd for something like spiritjaws. it's not subject to dr by raw or fluff.

    by RAI youre probably right but as far as I can tell by RAW youre wrong.

    As part of this maneuver, make a single melee attack. If this attack hits, your target takes normal damage and cannot make a full attack on its next turn. Otherwise, it can act normally.
    A hydra makes 1 bite with each head as a normal attack. it doesnt need to make a full attack to attack with all of them.

    Nah.
    He's got that "standard psychic pose" thing going on. Like he's communicating telepathically with you.

    Also, how the heck is he holding that sword with his left hand? It's like a Liefeld sword. First you draw the hand. Then you go "oh crap! Forgot the sword!". Then you draw the sword without changing the hand at all.

    That would be a plausible explanation if harper agent had anything like telepathy instead of the rather bland features it has.
    I'd say he's scouting for new talent for his publishers, and thinks he's spotted a promising writer in the distance. His publisher being Harper Collins.

    It looks like both, like he's clandestinely spying on someone skinny dipoing in the lake and attempting to telepathically beam that image back up to the mothership
