Orecke's CR is listed as 3, but he has 473 HP (86d8 + 86), and an AC of 15. He's on par with a Kraken (CR 23) for HP, or 2 Rocs (CR 11 each) if we're combining HP and AC. He has access to 6th level spells, which makes him comparable to an 11th or 12th level PC caster. On top of this He's buffed by 8 Zombies (MM), 4 Skeletons (MM), and one Ogre Zombie (MM). How did you decide on his HP, and the balance of this encounter?

Thanks for pointing that out! I do believe that's a typo in the CR. He's essentially an 11th level caster with an HP buff. My intention was for this to be a deadly encounter. Not unbeatable, but definitely challenging.

I'm open to feedback if you feel it's too tough, but you're also welcome to modify that stat block for your own table.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
