7-Day Challenge: Let’s Make a Monster

Hey all! If you haven't heard, I'm at a work conference in Austin (by the way, the food is UH-MAZING here) until Friday night. When I get back on Saturday, I plan to knock out a bunch of content before my Saturday night session that's at 5:30pm. One thing I'd really like to get caught … Continue reading 7-Day Challenge: Let’s Make a Monster

Yuan-ti Venomfist | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Recently, I got a request to create a "yuan-ti big bad" and I can't for the life of me find the person who requested it. So I'm kinda running blind here. Anyways, the idea that I got for this was to take this serpent person and make it into a badass monk. After all, I … Continue reading Yuan-ti Venomfist | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Gargs | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

This monster comes in as a request from one of my Patrons. Here's what he requested: Just joined as a Copper Patron, and would like to make my request.

Arch Priest/Priestess | New NPC for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Continuing to work on this adventure, once I got to the third tier, I needed yet another high-level divine NPC. I was hoping the drow variants would work (matron mother, high priestess, etc) but they were a little to drow'ish for what I needed. Therefore, I had to cook up a high-level divine threat. Arch … Continue reading Arch Priest/Priestess | New NPC for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

High Priest/Priestess | New NPC for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Currently, I'm working on a one-shot adventure that involves a retired deaconess living in an upscale, walled estate. The adventure is scalable, meaning that it will be available to any characters at any level. At early levels, the deaconess is a priest. But once the characters become 5th-level, a priest is no longer a reasonable … Continue reading High Priest/Priestess | New NPC for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
