PF 2e: Panlong

I really can’t help myself from making monsters, especially when it comes to the amazing art of Gary Dupuis. Take today’s monster, for example.

PF2: Corrupted Spider

I mentioned in the PF 1e version of the Corrupted Spider that I have not made monsters in quite some time.

3 Reasons Why Spellcasters Are Not Overpowered

I’ve heard this refrain over and over again my entire gaming career, ” Spellcasters are overpowered. Their power needs to be nerfed.” While I do understand that a spellcaster’s power can overshadow the martial characters with a single spell, once that single spell is used, they probably do not have much left. This is doublyContinue reading “3 Reasons Why Spellcasters Are Not Overpowered”
