Conversion Details

Conversion Note: I have giving the armour the greater shadow ability over a straight +5 to stealth rolls as PF1 and I have moved the ninja vanish ability to an increase in the power of the invisibility rune as the ninja class has not been completed yet. I have changed the Invisibility and Shadow rune to work on Unarmoured as well so I can incorporate them into the explorer’s outfit that I have based the ninja robes on.

I am a long term gamer, I run 6 RPG's a fortnight, host board game, card game and LANs each about once a quarter and have an addiction to buying more games. Games I am currently running are Pathfinder (1st and 2nd Edition) and Dungeons and Dragons (5th Edition).

One reply on “PF2 Item Armour Magic Shozoku of the Night Wind”

Hey Martin,

Please find attached my updated Stat Block for Nashru-level 10. It has been updated with your version of the Shozoku of the Night Wind. Changes include improved Stealth and Saves as you included: Greater Shadow (vs Shadow) rune and also the Resilient property (+1 to Saves). N.B. I am more than happy to accept the upgrades, if you are certain you want to include them. 😉

Also for your awareness; I have built it as “Light Armour” with +0 base AC (as opposed to Unarmoured-Explorer’s Outfit), because HeroLab Online would not let me add the Greater Shadow or Invisibility runes to an item that was not “Light Armour”; the end result is the same. One question on the below, should the item count as “L” bulk or “-” bulk when worn.  – Explorers Outfit is “L”, but arguably a “bodysuit” could count as “-” bulk.      – Not a significant difference either way, just a thought.

See you on Tuesday, although if I still haven’t completely got over this cold it may still be over Skype rather than in person. I will confirm on Monday or Tuesday.

Jeremy
