The jungle and polar cat feats are missing, The evolution of the climber benefit is tasty.

Given the existence of Dragontailed as a 1st level feat, I'd probably remove it from the species as there's enough source material that has them as bipeds. Downgrade the gaze attack from petrification to stun/paralysis -- in addition to making it cheaper, it is perhaps closer to the original idea of hideousness but also allows you to invest in a feat that grants either the traditional petrification attack or something else -- blindness, bleeding, etc

Anyone have any medicine skill who might be able to patch up Cenirith and the archer?  (Touch of Light has a range of Close, not Close/personal, so can't be used on Cenirith himself, and it wouldn't do anything about bleeding either).

Clarice has flawless medicine and a kit

"Just remember this is a dominance display, not a slaughter," Janus reminds the swordswoman. "Not that I care but these are meant to be our... allies. Brutal beatings and maimings only unless utterly necessary. And given he's probably going to be staying here instead of trying to blend in with the townsfolk, I think our big friend here deserves first crack at the rabble."

She slaps Grumblejack on the back. "You've been couped up too long. Time to enjoy yourself!"

No I don't think they are going with that exact storyline, but given the Cinemaverse is a distillation of 60-70 odd years of comic history, given both having reintroduced the character for this movie and Evans having stated he's looking to take a sabatical from acting in the near future, it seems a very logical next step to keep the franchise jugganaut rolling

Although the haggling has the result Janus is after, the timidity with which it has been approached leaves her feeling tetchy enough that she finds herself eyeing one of the ship's harpoons and picturing driving it into the heart of the medicine man then carving open White Tusk's throat with her thorns and bathing in the fountaining of warm blood. But the fantasy remains just that as the Frosthamar again sets sale and once more she settles into the despondent funk caused by life at sea.

The return to an inland waterway, when it finally happens, lightens her mood considerably. Entering the shadow of the great northern forest even more so. The further south, the more vivacious and active 'Sir Balin' becomes, though anyone paying close attention might notice that 'his' eyes gradually shifting from brown through to hazel until by the time the ship enters into Lake Tarik they have settled into the familiar hue of Janus's own. Clearly after so long away from it, being once again in her native element is loosening the chameleon's grip on her false facade.

When the bugbear camp comes into view, the scarred knight retreats to the back of the Frosthammar and behind the Grumblejack's bulk dons 'his' iron crown; apart from the return of Balin's brown eyes nothing appears to change though any of the knot observing what's going on are quickly able to notice that beneath the glamoured clothing, the real things are being removed and replaced.

"It seems there is a welcome committee present. We probably should greet them with a show of force to discourage them from taking any liberties with us or our cargo."

As though Creamor's pronouncement were a call to action, Janus removes the crown and emerges to join her demonic companion. But this isn't the Janus any of you recall ever seeing. Though her features and the beauty they hold remain, the pleasant fiction of the green-skinned dryad is stripped away to reveal something entirely alien. In lieu of hair she sports a crest laid back against her earless skull, while her skin has taken on a fine paper-bark texture that matches well the Iraen coat that has quickly become her pride and joy. When she bares them, her teeth seem to now sport two extra pairs of canines.

"Indeed, Professor," she agrees gleefully, giving free reign to her true voice after far too long and making sure the burly warriors can see that in her, Creamor, and Grumblejack, the boat has three clearly non-human passengers. "I'll draw their attention, the ensuing violence is all yours to indulge in. We will show them that we are not meat to be fucked with!"

Which of the region/place names pre-date humanity's arrival in the world?

Faer Padris is clearly an old Rainen name -- either of the city itself or else the name of the whole valley when it was a province of Faer Wernan misapplied to that one location.

Gron Ver I'd guess would be Vessa or Erron.

Brennestones probably comes from the westfolk tongue.

Also, are the Rainwall Mountains east or south of Moru's Mirror?

Eh, if they're a threat better to take care of at least one of them now when Zuul is in her element otherwise the advantage of air superiority that might have been ours could end up the enemy's.

Well actually I'd very much have liked the chance to tear at least one of them to shreds -- if nothing else, luring them into breathweapon range then letting loose with ye olde sonic scream. But if the orcs are taking potshots at Zuul, that should mean Clarice gets to take at least one at the things following her friend.

1d20+2=19, 1d4.open(4)=7 for a piddling 3 damage.

That's a threat, so if it hits I'll drop my last ad to confirm it. If, hopefully, the 19 is enough to hit on its own then the extra 7 points can go to damage if it's a special npc. Even more hopefully it's just a standard without tough.

I'd forgotten just how good In The Heat Of The Night was. There's some real sharp writing and direction going on here, helped on by absolutely top notch acting from Poitier and Steiger
