Chaos Dreadnought | New Monster for Fifth Edition

The original chaos beasts--those that have been alive since the beginning of time or possibly earlier--are known as chaos dreadnoughts. Fortunately, only a few of these behemoths exist, and they seem to be localized to the Randomness of Limbo. Like their lesser brethren, these horrific creatures have mutable, ever-changing forms. Their deadly touch can make … Continue reading Chaos Dreadnought | New Monster for Fifth Edition

Chaos Beast | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

These horrific creatures have mutable, ever-changing forms. Their deadly touch can make opponents melt into formless goo. There's no telling what a chaos beast will look like. One moment, it might be a towering horror of hooks and fangs, all pulpy flesh and exposed veins, and the next, a slithering mass of ropy, vermillion-tipped tentacles. … Continue reading Chaos Beast | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Mind Flayer Template | Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The biggest pain in the ass with converting Third Edition stuff into Fifth Edition stuff is that Third Edition was all about monsters having class levels. Fifth not-so-much. Case in point, I'm trying to convert the old Spiral of Manzessine adventure from Dungeon #94, and it's got a shit ton of mindflayers with class levels … Continue reading Mind Flayer Template | Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Ethereal Haunter | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Coming up at the end of February, I'll be launching two cool books for Patrons. These books will be available here on the site as well as FREE in their blog format as usual. The first book will be an adventure set in the Patron-created world of Wandrossa. While it's still in the works (and … Continue reading Ethereal Haunter | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Mind Slugs | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

This will be my last letter to you, Oleawa, my joy. I hope it someday finds you along with the others, put into your hands by someone who is beyond this nightmare from which I sadly cannot wake. I am the only one left. Daluwin, Mal'ne, Zawuil, Coechei plus countless others have all fallen to … Continue reading Mind Slugs | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

3 New A-Hole Monsters to Torment Your Players With | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

There are a few monsters in Dungeons & Dragons whose existence serves to only torment players. Whether it's a monster disguised as a treasure chest (mimics!), or monsters that drop from the ceilings (piercers), or monsters that eat through metal (rust monsters!), let's face it: these things don't make evolutionary sense. Obviously, they're the machinations … Continue reading 3 New A-Hole Monsters to Torment Your Players With | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Cloaker Variants for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The cloaker is a cool monster. Basically, it's a giant, talking manta ray that pretends to be a coat. They're chaotic neutral, too, which means they kinda just want to do their own thing and be left alone. What really makes them bizarre, I feel, is that they look like bestial predators, have fluff that … Continue reading Cloaker Variants for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Iron Orbs | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

If you're a player in or a fan of my Saturday (Bloody Bunch) campaign, you might want to avoid reading this. It contains spoilers. Stzubnuk’moech’k (you can call him "Chuck") was a powerful beholder in life. Ruler of the Demi-plane of Nightmares, Chuck oversaw the Grove of Dreamers. In addition, he (begrudgingly) ushered new beholders … Continue reading Iron Orbs | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
