Q: What is the lowest CR creature that can defeat an Ancient Red Dragon in open combat, and how many of them does it take?

David CoffronThis Q&A explores a similar question with commoners specifically, but I wanted to pose a challenge that isn't defeated by kiting. As such, I figured I'd open the floor to all creatures with a priority for lower CRs and less creatures (in that order). Assume the battlefield does not contain cover ...

Q: In Princes of the Apocalypse, is this monster “supposed to” kill a player character?

KerrickIn Princes of the Apocalypse Ch. 6, has plenty of time and warning to prepare for his encounter with the party, along with the spells to do so: He is also in possession of a powerful magic item, Which the adventure says he grabs before combat breaks out.

In a number of the new classes, there is a skill, Scry (Int, exclusive skill), first appearing in the Shaman class on p23, but appearing as a class skill in a number of other classes.

Q: Do weapons that do both Piercing and another damage type suffer underwater combat penalties?

ElliotSome weapons, like Morningstars and Sugliin, do two types of damage at once (Piercing/Bludgeoning and Piercing/Slashing, respectively). How does this interact with underwater combat penalties? Normally a weapon that does piercing damage isn't subject to such penalties, but slashing and bludgeonin...
