Ithink I may need to DM a game where I pit the pcs against Lordi inspired fiendish/half-fiend/Acolyte of the Skinish bards (one or the other or some combination of possibilities. Not terribly optimized BBEGs. But LORDI!!!!
(yeah, I just started watching Dark Floors)

(For those who don't know who Lordi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lordi) is, check out (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1kILYREp_0&feature=related) these (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdItwaLrv1U) videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PZ6WJ8pdseI) for an idea.)

That's actually a REALLY cool idea. I love Lordi (I didn't really like Dark Floors, though), and I think you could probably come up with a cool set of BBEGs based on them, even if you DON'T use the Bard class.

-Mr. Lordi - some sort of Outsider with the (Evil) subtype, or maybe just a Monstrous Humanoid
-OX - a Monstrous Humanoid with super-strength
-Kita - An Aberration with a crazy bite attack
-Amen - definitely a Mummy, not sure about what else
-Awa - A vampire-type Undead with the ability to become incorporeal at-will

(Also, since you mentioned just starting Dark Floors, do you have any of their albums? If not, you should definitely check out "The Arockalypse" and then maybe "Get Heavy" or "Monsterican Dream." I think they have a new album out, but I haven't checked it out yet, so I don't know if it's as good or not.)

I never thought it'd happen, but you've done it.
You've come up with something that makes every other idea ever produced for D&D useless. Congratulations, BoED does not compare to how awesome an idea this is.

gwar is fine too


also, you could have them play this song


and then throw a pocket nuke of some sort. 4000 pounds of shrink item'd alchemists fire for 4000d6 damage would work.

So yeah, the movie? not so hot. It was pretty good, until the very end. They really didn't handle the wrap up very well. I could see what they were trying for, but they fell waaaaay short.

Hmmm. Mr Lordi might go well with Half-fiend, since that would net him some cloak-y wing-y things for flying about.

Amen might do well as a dry-lich (or whatever they're called from sandstorm)

OX...maybe a Fiendish Minotaur?

Kita: dunno, maybe tack on pseudonatural to some existing beasty?

Stumped on how to proceed with Awa at the moment. (I'm leaving work now so I'll noodle it a bit.)

(and yes, I have the Arockalypse album. It makes me giggle.)

Lordi must have have the ablity to change any person who he touches or hears him and the rest of the groups song. no matter what then is no save.

You know, if they're all using Dragonfire Inspiration for a different energy type, they could be ridiculously powerful.

Wow this is incredibly awesome. I salute your genius!!! :)

Go Lordi!
