Kumbhakarna is a rakshasa (devil) that towers over man. Despite his monstrous size and great hunger, he was described to be of good character, though he killed and ate many monks just to show his power. He was granted a boon, but accidentally asked for the “Nidraasana” (bed for sleeping) and slept for six months. When he awoke, he devoured everything in sight. The warrior who defeated him did not sleep, eat or drink for 14 years to prepare for his battle with the devil.
Here are my thoughts for Kumbha, his son and goat herder.
Might: 5, Nature: 7
Descriptors: Sleeping, Devouring, Herding
Kill: 14, Weapons: Attack: +1d Mighty Thews, Maneuver +1d Giant Stride
Drive off: 10, Weapons: Attack: +1d Mighty Thews, Maneuver +1d Giant Stride
Flee: 7, Weapons: Attack: +1s Insatiable Hunger
Armor: Demon Skin (equivalent to leather)
Instinct: Devour everything in sight.
Special: Against an adventurer who has fasted for 14 days without sleep or food, Khumba’s Order of Might is reduced to 2.
My biggest concern is the Special (the rest of the stats are very close to a troll’s).
What’s the best method to accomplish this? I was thinking an Ob 4 Heath test (suggested failure condition: Hungry and Thirsty) and an Ob 5 Will test (suggested failure: condition exhausted).
The intent of reducing OoM is so that a) he’s killable, and b) while he’s still dangerous (rolling 8 dice on attacks and having a very high disposition) it’s also possible to deal him crippling wounds (+1s due to higher OoM)
