This page is a listing of the advanced, modified, and created NPCs and monsters for Upper_Krust's conversion of module H4, the Throne of Bloodstone (1988) by Douglas Niles and Michael Dobson. Renamed the Throne of Orcus for the 3.5 conversion, it requires a lot of modification because the expectations of what a character can do at these levels is a bit different.

For those wondering, this is a campaign setting for characters of ECL 100. An average encounter is going to be between CR 55 and 99. Cannon fodder will be CR 38. Random Encounters will be CR 39-53. "Mini-Bosses" will be CR 100-132, and the "Bosses" are going to be CR 133-200.

To bring this better into perspective, that means random encounters will include Demi-Deities, standard encounters will include lesser and the weaker Intermediate Deities, and mini-bosses will consist of strong Intermediate and Greater Deities, and the bosses themselves will be strong Greater Deities and Elder Gods. People joke about hack-and-slashing through pantheons, but now they're going to get to do so. Really.

But in order to do that, we need stats. So here we go.
