5e: Dire Owl

A classic of the Worlds Oldest Fantasy Roleplaying Game involves giant animals. The origin of these is quite simple, someone trying to convince someone else that their fight with some animal was far more valiant because it was far larger than most. In a fight when the adrenaline is pumping, a fierce creature can seemContinue reading “5e: Dire Owl”

5e: Young Spiderbear

With Halloween fast approaching, we thought it would be fun to share one of our favorite monsters, the spiderbear. It is our own take on classic D&D mashup monsters like the owlbear. It is creepy and dangerous, terrifying for being both a spider and a bear, and an all around evil creature.  While this oneContinue reading “5e: Young Spiderbear”

5e: Great Dodo

One of the problems that annoys me the most about Fifth Edition is the lack of character choice you have. Beyond 3rd level, there are very few choices for a character to make. Even spellcasters, the classes with the most numbers of choices regardless of edition get far less choice compared to other editions. ThisContinue reading “5e: Great Dodo”

5e: Vampiric Young Blue Dragon

Today I would like to share with you a fun mash up of two monsters: dragon and vampire. We are so use to vampires being humanoid that we forget that a vampire can be of any shape. So when creating it in another form, why not marry it a creature that is already scary likeContinue reading “5e: Vampiric Young Blue Dragon”

Pathfinder: Spectre Spawn

Back when I was creating Shadowsfall, I wanted it to feel both familiar yet different. One way I wanted to accomplish this was by making higher and lower level versions of existing monsters. By allowing players to encounter a monster that is normally not seen until higher levels, it gives the feeling that this monsterContinue reading “Pathfinder: Spectre Spawn”

Pathfinder RPG: Bladecypher Protean

When it comes to outsiders, proteans are an interesting addition. In a game that is frequently a game of good and evil, proteans are neither. Infact, they are defined as chaos incarnate. That is their hook. Proteans are to destroy and remove all semblance of order to reality. When I first wrote the bladecypher, thereContinue reading “Pathfinder RPG: Bladecypher Protean”

Pathfinder: Not Going To PaizoCon Sale

It’s that time of year again when we get to find out what is coming from Paizo for the upcoming year for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and me being in the other end if the country means I don’t get to go as often as I’d like. So you get the benefit of having ourContinue reading “Pathfinder: Not Going To PaizoCon Sale”

5e: Halfling Warlock Skeleton

I just thought I would take a break from my regular posting of expanding the number of creatures you can summon with the conjure spells in your Fifth Edition game and post a monster I made just for fun. How to make NPCs for 5e is a quesiton I don’t have a good answer forContinue reading “5e: Halfling Warlock Skeleton”

5e: Shadow Elemental

In our quest to increase the number of creatures you can bring to the table with the conjure spells, the most obvious place to expand is the number and type of basic elementals in existence. My interests in the shadow lands means a shadow elemental should be in the game. Naturally that also means there’sContinue reading “5e: Shadow Elemental”

Pathfinder: Gibbering Glob

When it comes to monsters, there are some D&D classics that everyone just loves. Owlbears spring instantly to mind. Gelatinous cubes is another one. Bugbears, drow, multicolored dragons, and a whole host of others make the game instantly recognizable. Then there are the ones that Wizards owns and doesn’t let anyone out side of someContinue reading “Pathfinder: Gibbering Glob”
