Also, can anyone explain to me how this is TN?
But enough about the logical weirdness of the pretend game monster, let's take a look at its abilities. 4 monstrous humanoid HD, small bonuses to all abilities, a weak slam, and (most importantly) Change Shape and Detect Thoughts.Originally Posted by Monster Manual
Change Shape is semi-interesting, but it's barely more useful than a human with a wand of Alter Self. The same goes for Detect Thoughts: reading minds may be useful in some situations,
Would I play a doppelganger? Perhaps. Their HD leave enough room for martial adept or skillmonkey levels, and they have a few bits of material tailored to them (Mindspy, Able Learner). Would I play them at +1 LA, though? Definitely not. Current LA, which I can't imagine changing; +0.
