  • [little plot hole] Rise of the Runelord, book 2. PLAYERS GET OUT HERE, SPOILER AHEAD

    There is a little plot hole on the first book (this, for sure, is a mistake from the original, Paizo AP, not from Pinnacle).

    I'll repeat: this is a spoiler. If you are a player, you'll have much of the fun from this adventure broken. So, please, don't read it anymore.









    [SPOILER]
    When the Pathfinders are investigating the Mill, on the first chapter, they can find barefoot prints from the Skinsaw Man.
    Their stat block, on the other hand, shows that he wear acrobat boots (that BigMike corrected it to be Boots of Elvenkind, that makes much more sense since he is sneaky creature). To make a barefoot trail, he must leave the boots behind, that doesn't make any sense. So, if will GM this part, change the description.
    [/SPOILER]

    I never spotted that, even back when I ran the original PF AP, but that is amusing. Maybe the bottoms of the boots are worn out or he got them later off someone he killed.

      I choose to describe as someone light and graceful, like an elf. This create some mislead and confusion because of the stench on the place.

    If memory serves, the tracks of this creature lead from the mill into the river. If you really feel the need to resolve this plot hole, it's not unreasonable to assume the creature stripped off its clothes and shoes before entering the water, comitted its nefarious deeds in its birthday suit, then returned for its attire afterwards.
