There were too many rooms in this dungeon that were essentially “break down door and kill the orc”. Mixed it up by changing some of the room encounters. This was the last time they encountered the stonewalker spirit as he took over statues to harass the party. The party got surprise and the red onryoki died in the first round as they focused fired him down.
D6. Hall of Lost Grandeur
This is a tactical encounter due to the number of creatures, use the bathhouse and statuary tiles as maps (used Forbidden Fortress map tiles).
STONEWALKER SPIRIT – Men Shen x1
This creature will posses one of the armour and attack the backrow. Use the animated armor statblock but the stonewalker has maximum hit points (54) and the following additional trait and attack option:
Possess statue (free, when entering the same space as a statue; at-will). The stonewalker spirit assumes the form of a possessed statue. Use the possessed statue stat block instead of the stonewalker spirit’s stat block (use shadow demon).
Flee the Form (free, when a possessed statue is reduced to 0 hit points; at-will). The stonewalker spirit takes 10 damage (ignores insubstantial) as it reverts to its normal form, then moves up to its speed.
Petrifying Touch (Recharge 6). Melee Weapon Attack: +4 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d6 + 2) bludgeoning damage , and the target must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw against being magically petrified. On a failed save, the creature begins to turn to stone and is restrained. It must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn. On a success, the effect ends. On a failure, the creature is petrified for 24 hours..
If there is no statues left to posses the stonewalker spirit will flee but will appear as a hazy samurai to those with spirit sight and can be killed in this form – use the wraith statblock for its spirit form.
