Skaven Plague Priest


Seems like another mistake in the rulebook. In the Monsters section the Plague Priest is listed with 3 attacks and 2 damage dice. However, in the monster tables he only has 1 damage.
How do you play him? Even with 1 damage it seems like a tough guy to me.

Strange... in my Roleplay Book he is listed with 1 Damage Dice in both the Skaven Monster Section (page 112) and in the Monster Tables...?

Where exactly do you see him listed with 2D6 Damage?

Re: Skaven Plague Priest


Interesting. I see he has 1 Damage Dice in the monster table (level 6) and 2 Damage Dice in the Skaven section of the Beastiary. I am looking at the Plague Monks sub-section where it lists Plague Monk, Clanrat Plague Priest, and Plague Lord. I have a pdf copy of the RolePlay Book. That is what I use.

I am sort of inclined to think it should be 2 Damage Dice, but then again, with 3 Attacks AND the Frenzy 4+ special rule, which would change the number of Attacks to 6!, it seems doubtful...

So, I too am wanting to know the correct answer. The gold value of 730 does NOT solve it for me either. lol

I am seeing the same thing as Littlemonk. Both the monster tables and Bestiary section in the Roleplay book list it as 1.

It's only 1D6. There are two .pdf files, one of which is a straight up scan (which correctly shows it as 1D6) and there's an OCR version. Both have their flaws! The scan has some pages in the wrong order, etc, and I think some missing, but the OCR one has lots of typos and things of this nature. Usually it's obvious mistakes, mind you, so it's good to catch this one.

I do recommend to pick up an original copy of the WHQ books for these exact reasons!

Aye, you're right. I've got 2 pdf-copies. In the original scan there is 1D6 damage. I've been working with the other one, as it was possible so search through the text. I hope there aren't too many of such typing errors...
thanks anyway

There are many typos in the OCR pdf. I own oryginal books so have no such problems emoticon And the only errors in the oryginal book is the Black Orc Big Boss to hit table on page 108 and (maybe it is not an error) Emperor Dragon Ignore Pain value of 3d6 (page 101).

Actually, i believe that the ignore pain 3D6 is accurate. I think the idea is that the dragon may be struck in different parts of his body. So i think they made it 3D6 so that it changes each time... but who knows?

Does everyone play the Emperor Dragon as rolling 3D6 each encounter or 3D6 each turn??

Or 3D6 each strike - as Old Warrior said.
I think that this is a typo, I dont belive that there would be only one monster with such weird IP value. But we never get official answer to that.
