  • Animated objects' senses [HLH spoilers]

    I just noticed the animated cauldron in HLH has darkvision, while the bestiary's animated objects have nightvision. Is this intentional?

    I see some differences in monsters sheets in Rise of the Runelord too. In some cases I just think that they changed the entry in the bestiary after that, I think that this is the case of this creature.

      Leafing through the bestiary, it seems that the nightvision ability was given to creatures who have both darkvision and low light vision in pathfinder – most notably ogres, magical beasts, and constructs.

      I'll give that cauldron nightvision in my game... (sorry, sorcerer PC!)

    I don't own any of the Adventure Paths so I can't say for certain, but generally speaking, creatures in a bestiary are "typical" of their type, while similar entries in an adventure might be different because they are tailored to that specific adventure.

    ... or a change was made in one book and not the other. Just look at the bright side: at least now you have options.

      Sure. Besides, a d8 instead of a d6 in one skill is far from a game breaker

    I advise the animated have the same senses as the caster.
