In the original storyline, It's not even that the King didn't invite her. The king knew that if the most evil thing in the tri-sovereignty area learned she had been snubbed, his shit would be ruined. He DID invite her, and then it was discovered that between her, the 8 other fairies, and some others, he only has 12 Golden plates, instead of 13.
Maleficient laid that curse on the kid because her PLATE was less precious than her neighbor's. Which was her fault for arriving late.

Also, who's the chick to our right of the evil step-mother

They're all True Fae.

It took three of them combined to actually kill Maleficent, just because she was THAT POWERFUL.

Difficult to say, they're largely a creation of D&D upon existing archetypes. The word is derived from German, Liche meaning corpse, and is also found in Old English. The iconic monster is derived from sword and sorcery literature, specifically 'The Sword and the Sorcerer' according to Gary Gygax.

The mythological roots are most likely Middle Eastern wherein the idea of burial practices, eternal life, and sorcery granting eternal life and a withered state are found. And the phylactery is found in Slavic mythology, a famous character who is basically a lich, Koschey. Also Egyptian entombment practices.

The myth is basically archetypal.

The books the Black Cauldron is based off of actually have a Lich.

Pretty sure it's in "Taran Wanderer", but I could be wrong. Also, seconding the vote that the books are a) awesome, and b) pretty damned dark. Gurgi is basically a cross between the Beast and Beni from the Mummy.

Goddamn I nostalgia'd hard when you guys mentioned Black Cauldron. It's been AGES since I read those books, and the only thing I remember from them is amusing.

The only thing I remember anymore was when the main character, being the do-gooder he is, saves a baby EVILBIRD instead of killing it in the first book. Even when I was a kid I was like "Yeah and then he gets saved by the bird later on, like I totally see this coming". And the series was like what, five books? And all the time I was like "Ok when is the bird going to help him out". And then in the last book he's hanging from a cliff and it's all like OH NO IS THIS THE END FOR THE BRAVE HERO, THE EVIL BIRDS ARE CLOSING IN, and then it's the fucking bird that he saved when he was a kid.

Baron Samedi (yeah, I know they called him something else) - Generic sorceror/witch doctor with some cajun spice - fits everywhere. He and Ursula are more playfully LE than outright villainous. Only the heroes' stupidity gets them into shitty situations.

I like the idea of Cruella getting off on killing things and wearing them. Makes a lot of sense. "Adventurers, bring me a dozen Gold Dragon hatchlings..."

Cuthbert from the Aristocats? Not so much with the BBEG material, but he might be workable in something else.

Ah yes. Come to think about it, I got a strong Malicient vibe from Morrigan and Flemeth.

Flemeth transfoms in a dragon.

And Morrigan is like a dark evil witch powered by sex appeal.

>> No.12948688

I mentioned the Flemeth thing in this thread earlier on, that's totally correct.

In what system? It's not impressive to be able to place these guys, dude. They're incredibly general and mutable evil concepts. You can do it nicely by getting really intricate with the specifics of a particular setting or system, but you don't need to broadcast how you fit the general concept in: that is, in effect, what the respective movies were doing.

Not to mention Shere Kahn would hardly be a were-critter, unless you wanted him emo as fuck.

>> No.12948756

Morrigan is a whiny goth kid who thinks herself higher and mightier than mere mortals, even though most of what she says is bullshit and everyone else in the party could probably solo her, including Wynne. As for the sex appeal, I don't know. She looks kind of bland, despite her eternal makeup.

Shere Khan is a dark legend of the forest, a great tiger with a taste for Manflesh and a fondness for destruction unmatched by his animalistic kin. He demands human sacrifice on a fairly regular schedule from villages in his domain, which is quite large. Unwary adventurers, hearing the tale of an "intelligent" tiger hunting and manipulating the local populace, might suspect a weretiger or Rakshasa. The truth is, Khan is "merely" a paragon of his kind, and Lord of the forest - should his subjects refuse to give him pleasing offerings, he will wreak a terrifying retribution upon them. He is petty, vengeful, and cunning, preferring to follow his prey and strike when the moment is ripe.

>> No.12948906

When travelling in natural terrain, his exceptional stealth allows him to surprise a party on a 1-4 on a D6: he is only surprised on a 1. Shere Khan is deathly and instinctually afraid of fire, a fact that irritates him deeply. If there appear to be spellcasters in the party, Khan will attempt to single them out, leaping on one from ambush (consider this a Charge if using the optional rules from 2e) before savagely mauling him - on a successful surprise roll, the target is Backstabbed, for triple damage. On the next round, Khan will fade into the underbrush using his Thief abilities and wait for another opportunity. His cunning allows him to create distractions, and he will attempt to force magic-users to waste their spells if he is unable to kill them in the initial strike - often waiting hours to strike again if a spell has no obvious effect.
Shere Khan has the following Thief abilities: Hide in Shadows 40%, Move Silently 60%, Climb Walls 95%, and Backstab (Triple damage)

The Hide of Shere Khan:
If harvested and properly prepared, Shere Khan's hide will serve as a powerful symbol to the denizens of the forest (Human and some animals) - the bearer/wearer will be considered the new King of the Forest, and treated as such. Note that the locals may still consider offering humans to a PC bearing the Hide. The Hide offers an AC of 7 if worn intact. It can be prepared with the proper spells into an armor which grants an AC of 5 and the ability to use Thieving skills while wearing it as though it were ordinary clothing: it loses its other properties.

Finally, Shere Khan is the King of the Forest - but the Forest selects her rulers, not the hand of Man....

>> No.12949001

Most of the AD&D DMs I know play HiS as an extraordinary ability: if the ordinary stealth precautions fail / you blow the Surprise roll and/or someone is actively searching for you >where you're hiding<, then you take an HiS roll to see if you can get away with it.

If you want to play with the straight roll, then 65-80% is quite appropriate.

>> No.12949108

ah feck, left out a line while I was transposing this:

When encountering a party in his demense, Khan will more than likely attempt to kill them, even if they do not appear to be a threat. If they offer slaves or one of their own as tribute, he will allow them to pass unmolested – this is a grossly evil act. Otherwise, Khan will kill and eat party members or retainers until sated, then allow the party to pass.

Less malign – and yet no less dangerous - than his jungle counterpart, King Scar is a lethal but disinterested enemy. Scar hunts when the fancy takes him, and will kill an entire party or village for sport; yet he does not always respond to armed invaders unless he feels his position or realm is directly threatened (say, by a party attempting to create or defend a settlement).

Scar is made much more of a threat by his minions: dozens of Semi-intelligent CE Hyenas (see below), whom he keeps in check through brute force. They bear him news, and are likely to be the vanguard of an attack against a party Scar considers an actual threat. As a recognized Beast King, Scar can command and expect fealty from any intelligent animal in his realm; most of them are terrified of him, and if addressed with Speak to Animals or any like ability will absolutely refuse to cross him – to the point that any commands or charms attempting to get an animal to go against the known will of Scar will prompt an immediate second Save, and break any enchantment that allows no save.

>> No.12949517

He disdains stealth, but will occasionally leap from ambush. To adjucate quickly, roll for surprise as normal: assume he is leaping from ambush and gains surprise on a roll of 1-2. If his leap connects, consider the attack a Backstab for double damage. If a 3 is rolled, Scar surprises the party, presents himself to them and Roars (see below) in an attempt to intimidate and terrify them. On any other roll, he is sighted as normal, but will likely attempt to Roar and attack if not immediately addressed and propitiated. Although he lacks the cunning and stealth of Khan, Scar will still attack the character he feels is the greatest threat: he can recognize spellcasting, and will hold initiative to assault a caster if not hard-pressed or trapped by other characters. He will usually use his Jumping movement to do so. Note that this is considered Withdrawing from combat.

Special attacks: Roar (Fear effect: as Cause Fear cast by a 9th level Magic-User) Backstab (Double Damage), Rake (if he lands both Claw attacks, he may forgo his Bite attack and Rake with his hind claws for 4d4 damage)

Stupid, brutal, and annoying, Scar's minions are a barely-controlled force of destruction. They roam his realm in packs, terrorizing and killing as they see fit. They attempt ambush whenever possible, but only surprise on a roll of 1 on a d6 if not restrained by the presence of Scar: one will almost invariably blow the ambush by leaping first, laughing unexpectedly, etc. If they encounter a party, they will almost certainly attack – for the sheer novelty if nothing else – but will quickly break and run for their master if seriously threatened.
They also loathe Scar – if presented with an opportunity to, they may well turn on him provided they think they have a good enough chance to win.

I'm surprised Dr. Facilier hasn't been mentioned much really, but then again he is a rather recent entry. I can see him becoming one of the classic Disney villains though, if just due to the fact that he's stylish enough to do it.

Frankly, as one of the thirty-somethings contributing to the thread, I see him as too generic - plus, I haven't watched his movie yet.
Statting up just 5 villains (so far) has been an all-day job, and I don't have the time or give-a-shit to do him next :b
That said, throw together a profile better than "warlock/sorceror/witch doctor of a fairly generic type" and put it up - we'll all thank you for it.

The Beast

AC: 6
Move: 8", leap 4"
HD: 6 +3
% in lair: 100
Treasure: 2 H, plus personal magic items (see below)
#/Att: Claw/Claw 2d6/2d6 Bite 1d20
Ali: CG.
SA: Hill giant strength, Rage; Thrown objects.
SD: Nil
MR: 15%
Int: Average
Size: L

The Beast lives in a massive manor house or castle, far removed from civilization. A party is likely to encounter it through vague rumors of a cursed tower, or by stumbling across it while journeying through the wilderness. On entering, the party will almost certainly be surprised by the (relatively benign) animated servants within (1-5 on a D6).

>> No.12953174

The Beast himself is subject to towering rages at certain provocations: when in the grip of one of these, his AC is lowered to 10, but he gains an additional 4 temporary HD (recalculate his THAC0 and other hit probabilites) which are lost before any other HP.
The DM should remember that the Beast is a 16-year-old boy with no self control and the strength of a Hill Giant, in the grip of a mind-shattering despair (which is justifiable, one might add) and rage: he will react unpredictably, and will generally overreact to seemingly innocuous things. Keep in mind, every mirror in his home is smashed, heavy drapes block the windows so that they may not reflect, and he imprisons or kills anyone who sees his face.. because he's ugly.
He does not Bite, and usually does not even attack unless in one of these animalistic furies: normally, he will simply use his enormous strength to grapple and disarm his enemies – wrenching knives from their grip, pinning and throwing them, etc. He is also capable of throwing immense objects, usually his hapless furniture, for 2d6 damage, at a range of 10"; but as an unpracticed thrower, he suffers the usual -4 to hit nonproficiency penalty.

>> No.12953220

The Beast's treasure is scattered throughout the castle, and much of it is in the form of large, immovable tapestries, huge golden chandeliers, and similar displays of opulence. He also has an extremely extensive library, which is hidden deep in the bowels of the North Wing. Rare tomes or the like may well be hidden among the remainder. In his personal chambers, the Beast keeps 2 magic mirrors face-to face: a person bearing one can see what the other should reflect, and vice versa.
He also has the Rose which is the anchor of his current curse. If the rose is approached in any way, the Beast will immediately fly into a rage, and will almost certainly attempt to kill the offending character.

Secondary ideas:
1) The Curse of the palace is contagious - any person who agrees to become a Servant rather than a Prisoner begins the slow process of transforming into an animated piece of furniture or other accessory of the castle.
2) the Curse has been in effect for generations, or even centuries: the Beast will be quieter, more brooding, and may even be resigned to his fate.
3) the Curse is contagious - but begins working as soon as a character enters the Beast's home, and takes 1d6 months to activate.

Werebear/Minotaur crossbreed maybe.

Well, he's not entirely generic. His powers aren't his own. they're granted to him by dark spirits he consorts with. His own shadow is his shapeshifting familiar and can pull off minor telekinetic acts. But it has a life and will of its own, and sometimes works at cross purposes to him. I'd consider him a rogue first and foremost. He's a professional con artist. All his power is granted to hi via deals with otherworldly spirits, in the same way that Dragons can grant Dragon Pacts, circa the DnD 3.5 book Dragon Magic. This leads to an eclectic selection of powers. Mostly cantrips. Minor pyrokinesis, Open/Close spells, minor telekinesis via his shadow. For everything else he needs either one of his many talismans or alchemical concoctions, or a lengthy ritual by which his 'patrons' actually influence the victim and he is merely a minor participant who begins the ceremony to let them into the world. One of the strictures he suffers from is that his own magic cannot affect himself. He cannot buff himself, transform himself, or augment himself in any way, hence his constant need for intermediaries and minions. Having seen the movie with my girlfriend and her eight year old little sister, I can assure you it is a well made movie, and their portrayal of New Orleans a century ago is very well done (I was particularly impressed by the research they put into it).

Did this for an Iron Heroes game, the party was in this Norse country and they came across a man who called himself a Witch Hunter and his malformed, obedient son.

Long story short, Witch Hunter Frollo set a town on fire, crucified some people, and killed an ally of the party, a bandit queen, with a knife through her heart after she refused to lay with him. The son was at this point, battered into thinking his "father" was righteous and pure. So the party tied him up for future justice.
