The Gnoll Crocuta is a highly detailed, 10-level OGL v.3.5 prestige class that is presented in the new Skirmisher Publishing LLC book Tests of Skill v.3.5. This publication has been created both for use by owners of that publication and by people who might enjoy introducing some of the often-dark spells available to Crocutaea into their own campaigns. It contains 13 new spells, all of which originally appeared in Skirmisher’s OGL book Warriors but which have been updated and revised here.
Tests of Skill v.3.5 is thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded version of the innovative OGL adventure module and sourcebook originally released as a version 3.0 publication and intended as a companion volume to Experts v.3.5. This edition has been expanded by 24 pages, had its character and monster stats corrected and revised, and had added to it one new encounter, one new scenario, one new scenario outline, a section on Defects and how to use them in the game, and numerous other elements. It is intended to be enjoyed both by people familiar with the previous version and those completely new to it.
Tests of Skill v.3.5 is designed to entertain and challenge players through scenarios and encounters that can be overcome optimally through role-playing, skill use, and diplomacy. While traditional hack-and-slash techniques can be used to complete portions of the scenarios, most groups will find that tact, thought, and appropriate use of skills, feats, and abilities are generally much more useful and effective. It includes numerous tips on adjudicating skill checks that can be applied to any game session.
