Holiday Treants | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

And, it gives me the opportunity to dream up yet another holiday-themed monster. I knew I’d eventually make a Christmas Tree themed monster for the holiday. […]

Gobble-lins for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Hags are unusual creatures. While they’re well known for capturing babies and luring lost travelers into their shacks, they also enjoy twisting popular holidays to torment locals.

Not all blights come from deciduous or coniferous forests. For example, the desecration of the Gulthias tree can spread to the desert and create cactus blights.

Pigpeople for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Some time ago, hags learned that basic mercenaries don’t always cut it. They’re lazy, stupid, and often poorly trained.

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 […]

10 Classic Horror Monsters for Pulp Luchador Adventures in D&D 5e

I don’t know what it is about the old pulp luchador stories and art, but I just love the stuff. The idea of a Mexican wrestler going toe-to-toe with Dracula and the Wolfman is so damn thrilling!
