    I think he's just doing a cartwheel or something there, so not obviously a clue to his strength.

    Given his posture and the orientation of the many things, this is definitely a "or something" situation.
    I'd say it works as "no, he's not particularly weak", but otherwise I agree; saying the scene hints at good strength is reading into it too much.

    The motion lines on the paddle (and the squirrel, lamp being stable) seem to imply he is holding his position.

    Seperately - should Redcloak have Reach Spell for seemingly being able to cast slay living at range beyond touch (he could also be a Hierophant I suppose).

    Many spells which require touch do not, in fact, require touch (teleport being the most notable off the top of my head). I'd call this a similar situation, since there's almost no distance between them, similar to teleport.

    Well Nale uses a longsword and I believe they have the same physical stats so itís probably not that bad? Iím pretty sure Elan was somewhat capable of using that rapier, just not as well as before Dashing Swordsman.

    I assume we are treating 'Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Katana' as 'Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Bastard Sword' for this.

    Should we?
    Katana specifically mentioned 'Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Katana' not Bastard Sword and Exotic Weapon Proficiency specifically mentions Bastard Sword.

    Yes, we should.

    The wiki page for the katana you linked pulls from the 3.0 SRD, though it doesn't mention the "Except as indicated, same as masterwork bastard sword" note from the table there. (The little section on alternate settings in the 3.5 DMG has a largely similar table and text, but the note there says "Except as indicated, treat a katana as a masterwork bastard sword.")

    Fair enough - was trying to find the stats of the scimitar Nale got, found out he actually got a katana and went down the rabbit hole not noticing that I was looking at a 3.0 katana.

    If Thog is listed as at least level 11 to justify 3 attacks in a round should Roy be listed as level 16 for making four?
    If you count the clunks (and crack) on panels 14 to 16.

    Seperately should Thog be listed as level 16 (and given Quick Draw) as in 396 he makes 4 attacks (1 on the door, quick draw to pick it up and then three attacks on Haley).

    I think itís more like he sundered the door and picked it up, Elan tried Diplomacy, and it failed so Thog made a full attack on Haley after that. Two rounds.

    I am dubious about him having sudden at all but if we are including it we should probable list it seperately from Maximize Spell.

    He clearly has Maximize, so letís just put that and then add Sudden later if weíre sure.

    The problem then is we need to account for a 12th level spell slot (and there has been some reluctance to give him a 12th level spell slot).

    I am somewhat dubious as to if Eugene should count as a ghost - rather the some ghostlike positive energy spirit.

    But if he does count as a ghost he should seemingly have a charisma of 10+ as the template grants a +4 modifier.
