5e: Thunderscreech

Last year, I had a series of blog posts that shared all the conjurable creatures in the 5e MM and I noticed that it was a rather thin selection. I decided to do something about that, seeing as how summoning monsters is something I enjoy doing. I’ve been working for the last few months whenContinue reading “5e: Thunderscreech”

Pathfinder: Godling

Continuing our series of monsters released every Wednesday, we bring you one this week from our latest adventure—Deadly Delves: The Dragon’s Dream. This one is an aquatic blog of swamp mater that is worshipped as a god, where it gets its name from. This monster first appeared in our exceptional collection of high level monsters—BookContinue reading “Pathfinder: Godling”

Pathfinder: Pyroclastic Wight

I know it has been a while since we posted a monster on Wednesday. So we are making up for it by scheduling a number of Wednesday monsters and having them ready to go for a while. For this week’s monster we bring you one from our adventure Deadly Delves: The Chaosfire Incursion. This undeadContinue reading “Pathfinder: Pyroclastic Wight”

Pathfinder: These Catfolk Are Out of Their Furry Minds

We at JBE know that you want to use more of your library in your game. To this end, we choose to be less constrained in the number of sources we utilized for the Deadly Delves: 9 Lives for Petane adventure. So instead of our typical monster that we share every Wednesday, today we areContinue reading “Pathfinder: These Catfolk Are Out of Their Furry Minds”

Traveller: Using Monsters

I want to take a break from our usual Monster Wednesday for a moment and discuss the reasons to use monsters in Traveller. In games of fantasy like D&D and Pathfinder, using monsters is fairly obvious. In cases like lions and owlbears, it is a case of survival, a man vs nature story. For orcsContinue reading “Traveller: Using Monsters”

Traveller: Ice Goliaths

Quite literally, the first writing I did for Traveller was making monsters. I wanted to make a small monster book useful to all Traveller GMs. That book helped Jon Brazer Enterprises become what it is today. While its beginnings are humble it is still a great monster books. Today, I would like to share withContinue reading “Traveller: Ice Goliaths”

5e: Bloodboar

I consider myself primarily a monster maker. Some specialize in new class options, adventures, magic items, or whatever. Me, I can just take a look at some piece of artwork and can just see all the ways it can tear a human to shreds, eat it alive, take over its mind, or a number ofContinue reading “5e: Bloodboar”

Pathfinder: Aberrant Fruitcake

Ah, what a wonderful time of year it is. Holiday music is being promoted to us on our devices. Our family is bugging us to come over. So today, I thought I would top that off with everyone’s favorite holiday food: a fruitcake. This year, why not show the holidays how much you love theseContinue reading “Pathfinder: Aberrant Fruitcake”

Pathfinder: Memitim Psychopomp

When it comes to ferrying the dead off to their afterlife, preventing them from haunting the living, I think Christmas. Well, a Dickens-inspired Christmas, at least. Of course there’s the holiday classic movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, or the 80’s variation I grew up on, One Magic Christmas. In more recent times my times myContinue reading “Pathfinder: Memitim Psychopomp”

Pathfinder: Gingerbread Golem

Golem, Gingerbread This three-story tall monstrosity is flat like a cookie, but bends and twists with ease as it stalks across the ground. Its cakelike, vaguely humanoid body is etched with runes, and three enormous gumdrops dot its chest. An irrepressibly cheery smile of sugar icing stretches across its face. Gingerbread Golem CR 11 XPContinue reading “Pathfinder: Gingerbread Golem”
