The Nightmare Beast (Dark Sun) | New Monster for Fifth Edition

With a disposition as bad as its reputation, it's no wonder that a nightmare beast spreads terror wherever it goes. A nightmare beast stands at least 20 feet tall on its four legs. Each of its digits is tipped with a 3-foot-long claw. Its jaws are filled with 1-foot-long teeth and flanked by curved tusks … Continue reading The Nightmare Beast (Dark Sun) | New Monster for Fifth Edition

"Listen, and understand. That goose is out there. It can’t be bargained with. It can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead." Geese are no laughing matter.

The Medusa Queen | New Challenge for Fifth Edition

Once worshipped by the ancient people who lived and toiled in Dragard Mine, the Medusa Queen was a dangerous foe and curse on the land.
