Possible mistake in the errata
This is from the errata thread:
"p 175 (C44 - 54) -- Slaazh's statblock ...

Also, he has a statted AC of 26. This comes from +1 chainmail, wooden shield, and assorted troll bonuses. Unfortunately, he's using a huge greatsword, which means that he's NOT using his shield."

As far as I can tell, Slaazh has a masterwork greatsword, which is large, not huge, and can be wielded one-handed by a large creature. Therefore, he should be able to use a shield.

I concur. Slaazh's greatsword in his statblock does 2d6 damage, making it Large and usable one-handed.

The errata needs errata! 2d6 is the large version of a greatsword, otherwise it would have been stepped up to what... 2d8 I think.

Altho you should check and make sure the damage + afterwards is equal to his strength bonus not strength bonus x1.5.

So if he has 20 strength, it's listed as 2d6+5 no 2d6+7.

Also, if he's using a small shield, I believe he could use it as a buckler since he's large.

Back by popular demand. Yes 2 people is popular!

His strength is 24, so the +7 to damage is appropriate for wielding the weapon one-handed.

Crap, you're absolutely right, Hemholtz. I should have known someone else would have found an error long ago if there was one....8(
