The number of tentacle attacks seems overly generous given they're forward facing and by definition fairly useless outside a grapple.

That's ok. I plan to tweak them and use them as denizens of leng. They'll look like a worm-that-walks/jellyfish hybrid with yellow robes and speak Aklo. Not really mythos canon but I don't care about that. It will be fun.  ;D

Why do knights of the crone from adventure companion have treacherous and dramatic entrance? Treacherous seems to me redundant.

Per the RAW of Dramatic Entrance, it is when they arrive on the scene it becomes Dramatic. But if they are already there, it stays standard. Treacherous permits them to activate crits when it is not a Dramatic scene.

Now the GM could choose to extrapolate the idea of using the Special NPC aspect of Treacherous in a Dramatic Scene by allowing them to activate crits for 1 less AD.

Not to mention that if the Knight in question is a special character, treacherous and dramatic entrance do entirely different things. Which seems to me like the way the Knights are generally intended to be used, given that they're a pretty unique, elite group in the setting.

Treacherous lets special characters activate Crits for free, which is its main use here since a Knight of the Crone should be Special.
