5e: Bitter Armor

I was working on some Pathfinder slayers yesterday, and I made a character that previously was swallowed. Let me tell you, if you’ve ever been swallowed, you want some kind of defense against having that happen to you again. Pathfinder already has armor to help prevent against that so I thought I’d convert it overContinue reading “5e: Bitter Armor”

PF1e: Thando Xolani

Earlier this year, we started sharing a new batch of signature characters. These new characters focused on humans and the human experience, helping us all see ourselves in our fantasy games. Today we want to share with you a new one. Allow me to introduce you to our new signature paladin. Thando Xolani’s name meansContinue reading “PF1e: Thando Xolani”

3 Things to Steal from 13th Age

I love me some 13th Age. It is a well built game and highly enjoyable, one you should check out if you are not familiar. I’d describe it as D&D 4th Edition without all the compromises that held 4e back from being a truly awesome game. Having said that, I know plenty of groups thatContinue reading “3 Things to Steal from 13th Age”

A Deva in the Dungeon and Other Happy Surprises

This past weekend during my home 5e game, I threw something in a dungeon I never had before: a deva. Depending on your game and edition of the game, this is an angelic outsider or celestial. It was standing in the room with a curtain for a door. The characters listened at the door andContinue reading “A Deva in the Dungeon and Other Happy Surprises”

Pathfinder 1e: Memory of Anger

Few things bring me joy like making Pathfinder monsters. I take a beautiful piece of artwork and forge it into something new and terrifying. It’s like alchemy. I take something and I forge it into something new, something that never existed before. Well, it did exist before, but only as an idea. Take this week’sContinue reading “Pathfinder 1e: Memory of Anger”

Pathfinder 1e: Cave Chupacabra

Like I said not long ago, making Pathfinder monsters is something that I do just for fun. Give me an image and I can make a monster from it. This is one of the reasons why I love Gennifer Bone’s Patreon. By supporting it, she makes new monster art, and I get an image toContinue reading “Pathfinder 1e: Cave Chupacabra”

Pathfinder 1e: Shadowlord Demon

As those that follow me on Twitter know, I recently started watching Critical Role. I’m still working my way through Campaign 1. I got to the point where a shadow demon was possessing someone (I’m trying to be as obscure as a I can to avoid spoilers) and it was much bigger than your typicalContinue reading “Pathfinder 1e: Shadowlord Demon”
