Now that's a cool item... but I'm going to say no. (Picky, ain't I?) If the players are somehow able to carry out an attack against him in the daylight, there's a good chance they've already failed at rescuing Rafaela, OR they rescued her and fled, with intent to return in daylight. If players are smart enough to go for the run-away-and-return-in-daylight strategy, I'll let them have the advantage.

But it is a cool idea, to be filed for later...

I'm thinking of giving him an Amulet of Proof Against Detection and Location, and maybe throwing in a Wand of Petrification (turns one target to stone, save vs. Wands to resist). The Wands save is not so hard for mid to high level characters, and magic to fix the situation is usually in their price range, but it would be an excellent fallback for the vampire if his other powers prove inadequate.

The additional artwork looks great! I didn't see anything out of place glancing through the PDF.

Printed version of Strongholds of Sorcery is missing a map!

Specifically, the map for "Thaumerion's Tower". I searched high and low and it's not there... :cry:

Oh good grief. How did we miss that?

I've pulled it from distribution. I won't be able to update the PDF/ODT until Monday at the earliest.

This is not exactly a disaster, but it's definitely a disappointment. My apologies to anyone who bought this version.

Smoot, if you would, please post an apology on the Facebook page as I don't have time.

Done.
I mentioned that the map is available on the website/forums. But I think whomever has the good quality map available should make a special post with that map attached... just as courtesy to anyone that may have bought the copy with the omission.
