PF 1e: Necromancer’s Hammer

One of my favorite characters I ever played was Lyle, a halfling necromancer that hates undead. He excelled at taking down ability scores and using many unconventional spells to great effect. This would have been a spell he would have loved to use. Necromancer’s hammer was originally in the Inner Sea Magic Player Companion andContinue reading “PF 1e: Necromancer’s Hammer”

PF 1e: Fallen Angel

One of my favorite monster creations is the fallen angel. Angels do not see enough play in D&D-based games since most games involve players killing evil creatures. Being good servants of good deities, angels don’t get killed much. A fallen one is always going to be a tragic story. Do they kill one who hasContinue reading “PF 1e: Fallen Angel”

5e: Baby Space Whale

So I’m enjoying the new campaign setting. I want to jam some spells sometime. I love these old campaign settings. They do not get nearly enough love. I’m looking forward to scaping the planes next year as well. But I digress. So I created a baby space whale. I mean why have the adult spaceContinue reading “5e: Baby Space Whale”

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”
