Call me corny, but I've always loved Ravenloft. I think the setting has a cool atmosphere, awesome monsters, and some great mechanics.

The trilloch is an extraordinarily uncommon creature that originally hails from the Negative Energy Plane but is encountered only as it wanders other planes.

Xag-ya/Xeg-yi for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Ah, life – there’s no spot in the multiverse where it hasn’t managed to take hold. Perhaps, in a tome dedicated to the creatures of the inhospitable Inner Planes, such a concept should be a theme or even the theme. There’s life everywhere. The Positive and Negative Energy Planes are no exception to this rule. Somehow, on … Continue reading Xag-ya/Xeg-yi for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
