This one (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57301), remember?

I ran a one-shot earlier this week just to see how tough it was. Turns out, it's CR was a little overrated. It was brought down by a Beguiler 20/Striped servant 10 (hereafter referred to as Player 1) using some energy substituted [cold]+admixtured [cold] fire seeds spells. It went down something like:


A deity warps the party in from wherever they were, basically says "I'm bored", and then warps them to a beach where the crab is.

Player 1 makes sense motive to get the gist of what's going to happen and has enough wits about him to cast superior invisibility.

Surprise round:

Player 1 makes DC 30 spot check to see crab coming out of waves, so does Player 2.

Player 1 casts several iterations of fire seeds

Crab charges and grabs player 3

Player 2 casts a quickened haste and lands small blow on crab (relative to crab's HP)

Round 1

Player 1 full attacks with fire seeds, missing once, deals something like 573 cold damage. Crab is an ice cube.

Did you run the divine crab, or just the pseudonatural paragon one?

EDIT: and for danger, you may be better served with Helcaerfax, the PPDC on crack.
