Post Feline Fiends in the Castle!
My favourite monster is the rakshasa (hate what D&D 5E did to them on all fronts). Has anyone used them as villains and how?

A rakshasa was the BBEG in the Gary Con C&C tournament a few years back.

Cool! What was the story? I haven't played in tournaments (We don't have them here). Do these tournament scenarios have much in the way of story at all?

I can't remember specifics about the underlying plot. It was a one-shot adventure for conventions.

I've never ran a mod or adventure with one, and I don't think I've ever faced on (at least I haven't know it if I did).

However, I've been doing some conversions of 1e & 2e monsters for my Masque of Red Death Amazing Adventure game and they do look like they will be fun to mess with the Raider and Demon hunter in the game. ESP, strong illusion, multiple spells, heavy spell immunities, and good (heck better than good) combat abilities.

Hmmmm tropical or subtropical forest, jungle or swamp ... yeah New Orleans and the swamps of LA just got a lot more dangerous for them !

That said, looking at the beasty, AC of 24 or 25, and spell immunity for any spell less than 8th level . Is that a bit to much ?

Hags, 7th & 9th level (so comparable) with an AC 0f 20 to 22 & only 20% to 35% spell immunity, and I've fought them before and it has been a very close fight. So with that, does the tiger devil need to be dialed back a notch ?

Instead of a tiger, it could be a displaced panther. Same stats, just some local flavor
