Dreg Biter | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

For those of you who've been following along with the blog, you probably noticed that I've been working on a mini-project with the amazing, awesome Bert Verwaest of Crosshead Studios on his Metalhead project. I absolutely love Bert's vision and style, so I'm glad to help out with all the mechanical know-how to help bring … Continue reading Dreg Biter | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Skulking Cysts | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Continuing this mini-series on Libris Mortiis monsters updated for 5e, I'm going to be recreating the skulking cyst, another yucky monster from third. What is a skulking cyst? The horrible creature walking into view is a mass of free-roaming intestines, flaccid organs, and a few odd rib bones. Dragging behind it like a dead weight is a … Continue reading Skulking Cysts | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Skin Kites | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Back in third edition, they had a few somewhat "controversial" books. One such book was Libris Mortiis, the Book of Undead. This book was full of all sorts of creepy, crawly, body-horrory type spells, monsters, and special options for 3rd. Seeing as how Fifth is a little more "public-friendly" than previous editions, I doubt such … Continue reading Skin Kites | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Zombify Everything Part 2 | Basilisks, Behirs, and Bugbears as Zombies

It's been a while since I did the first, so I thought I'd crank out another one. After all, it's the last day of November. And uh, it's fall. So... zombies? I guess. Anyways! Here are zombie stats for basilisks, behirs, and bugbears. Basilisk Zombie Medium undead, unaligned Armor Class 14 (natural armor) Hit Points … Continue reading Zombify Everything Part 2 | Basilisks, Behirs, and Bugbears as Zombies

3 New Monsters for Your Ravenloft Campaigns | Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Call me corny, but I've always loved Ravenloft. I think the setting has a cool atmosphere, awesome monsters, and some great mechanics. While I like the Fifth Edition version found in Curse of Strahd, my love for Ravenloft first came in second edition and later in third edition when White Wolf had the rights. Without … Continue reading 3 New Monsters for Your Ravenloft Campaigns | Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Trash Goblins for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Goblins aren't well-loved in the world. So it's no surprise that many take to garbage heaps to hide and build a new way-of-life for themselves. Over the years, these "trash goblins" (they hate that term, by the way) have developed a culture that revolves around refuse. It's in the waste of other humanoids they find … Continue reading Trash Goblins for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Common Raggamoffyns for Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition

Raggamoffyns are mysterious constructs composed of animated scraps and bits of cloth, metal, or other refuse from civilized societies, particularly those where magic is common. Raggamoffyns tend to cluster together, operating as much in secret as possible, taking control of selected hosts to further their agendas. Unlike other constructs, a raggamoffyn is not the result … Continue reading Common Raggamoffyns for Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition

Monjas Malvadas for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Not all followers of Jesucristo are good. There are those who believe that their God's true power lies within his resurrection and that he is more of a spirit of vengeance than a benevolent martyr. Of course, an entire religion cannot be villainized because of the actions of a few extreme outliers. Regardless, the members … Continue reading Monjas Malvadas for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Zules for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The tall, pale people known as the zules (a shortened form of "aquellos con ojos azules", or "blue-eyed ones") first appeared north of Mexjico fifty years ago. Originally, the Mexjicano people accepted the zules and trusted them. However, in the decades since, the zules have proven to be deceptive and cruel neighbors. In the late … Continue reading Zules for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Tecuani for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Tecuani, whose name literally means "people-eater", are jaguar humanoids that live in the forests and jungles in the southern parts of the Mexica empire. The tecuani are a superstitious, yet proud race. They welcome outsiders but are known to be particularly hot-tempered and quick to feud. The tecuani people prize strength above all other attributes and … Continue reading Tecuani for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
