Sailing through the skies of The Summer Land and parts of Central Omeria are the red-eyed ewoskas, large, intelligent falcon-like birds whose shrill shriek can shrink creatures down to transportable (and edible) sizes.

Krig Krigs are spider-humanoids that originate from the Weysevain Maze and, by extension, the town of Orbea in Central Omeria. Intelligent and clever, thanks mostly to their connection to their diety-progenitor Matriarch and all other krig, they quickly positioned themselves as assets throughout most of the continent. Their overall numbers are much lower than the […]

Tiny Terrors | 5 New Monsters for Fifth Edition

Tiny creatures don’t get a whole lot of love in Fifth Edition. Recently, I revamped a classic Dungeon magazine module, Mountain Sanctuary. The antagonists of the adventure were primarily diminutive creatures that appeared in the first edition fiend folio and Monsters Manual 2: cave crickets, osquips, gremlins, and spectramice. I felt that it was time […]

Dark Sun Bestiary (Part 6: Monsters of the Verdant Belt 2/4) | New Monsters for Fifth Edition

The Dark Sun bestiary conversion continues. Currently, I’m working through the MC12: The Dark Sun Monstrous Compendium – Terrors of the Desert. Specifically, I’m dividing the creatures up by the random encounter tables. First, are the monsters of the verdant belts. Verdant Belts Athas is an arid world, but it is not entirely waterless. In […]
