Funny Pages #11

Another weak, early issue from Centaur Publishing doesn't give me a lot to talk about.

There is the Natural History 2-page spread, with the theme of elephants. Wooly mammoths were statted in Book II: Mobsters & Trophies, but elephants have not been yet. As previously mentioned, elephants will finally get a stat entry in the upcoming Supplement V, but even that will only be for African elephants.  For more variety, treat an Asian elephant as having 5 HD, a pygmy elephant as having 3 HD...

 ...treat mastodons the same as wooly mammoths, but treat imperial mammoths as 11 HD and Colombian mammoths as 12 HD (all d12 Hit Dice, of course).

Sometimes you don't have to go in search of a hideout -- sometimes you accidentally fall into one while skiing. Now, you could take the time to research Indian burial practices and find out they didn't build tombs and start from scratch with a new idea, or you could just ignore facts and build an underground hideout around a tomb, and stock it with all kinds of Indian-like artifacts like totem poles and really wicked, demonic hatchets that are probably +1 or better -- look at that thing!  OR, maybe it's not an Indian burial mound at all, but belongs to some secret race only being discovered now...
