This small, angry looking piggy stands on it's hind legs, It's thick eyebrows cap menacing round eyes. He wears a strange red amulet and a high necked cape.

Chuckles the silly piggy is an awakened familiar that eventually grew too smart, and too pwoerful for his master. Or...atleast people speculate.

Combat: Chuckles will usually suprise attack if possible with his mystic amulet, or a silent and still spell if there is dialogue. If not he will use his magical mastery to cast three spells per round. Otherwise he will simply blast them with heightened spells.

Mystic Amulet of Hogswinboar: This small red amulet, when worn by a pig, grants a +10 insight bonus to Armor Class. It also grants any wizards wearing it +30 Spell Resistence.
The Mystical Amulet of Hogswineboar can replicate any prepared unused spell of 6th level or lower the wearer knows, this is performed as a standard action.
Any caster with 25 Ranks in Spellcraft wearing the amulet has any and all damage originating from a spell reduced by half. This does not apply when the spell's cost is damage to the caster. This amulet as well allows it's bearer to apply any one metamagic feat to any one Epic Spell once per week.

Thoughts, questions, concerns? This is my first time making amonster in a long time, and my first Epic monster, so, constructive criticism helps.

Oh gosh... I remember that show. >_< I can only imagine the humiliation when some PCs try to take this guy on.
What level are you targeting of PC group is supposed to be able to take this guy? Have you compared him to other epic monsters? Personally I think his stats, AC, and SR seem too high... unless you're trying to make another Sphinx, in which case you seem to be on track.
For this guy specifically though I think he'd work better as something maybe CR 5-10; a low level villain. Just seems more fitting.

Sphinx? Care to elaborate?

The CR is left as "???" because unfortunately I have very little experience with building monsters from the ground up, and this is literally my first epic monster. I wasn't sure what to compare him to, as he really only had about 30 class levels, with extra HD of course.
I was hoping for a very high level BBEG, but wasn't sure exactly how it all worked out.

And ofcourse Chuckles can be a low CR, he's a recurring villain, they always get progressivley stronger, wink.
The original plan was to actually have it a CR 5-6ish replacement for Sunless Citadel's final battle. However it has been years since I played it (aaaah, kicking Meepo off a cliff), so I had little memory of what transpired..... Having successfully derailed it enough to take on every kobold in the keep single handedly in one combat.

The Sphinx is a disturbing CR 100+ monster, I don't recall who exactly made it or where it came from, but yeesh.
To be honest I'd even power down Chuckle's "final boss mode" (i.e. last time the PCs fight him) to a CR 15-20. I do rather like the idea of him being the sunless citadel boss XD. (We never got past the kobolds due to excessive pkers. :smallannoyed: )
I think what bugs me about the build here is that well... to be honest he makes major deities look weak, which I think is a sign that he needs major powering down. I have no idea what his CR would be in his current state, sorry. >_<;;
Maybe compare him to things like Titans or the Tarrasque if you want to build him as an epic monster. I don't remember where I saw the stats but if you can find them checking for scale against deities might be a good idea too.
