Fascinators (They Live Aliens) | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Welcome to day 4 of my Halloween monster series. Today, I’m tackling the shapeshifting aliens of the film They Live, whose name in the novel was The Fascinators. Fascinator The aliens have a vaguely similar body structure to humans, enough that they can convincingly disguise themselves. However, they have blue skin, bulging eyes, and no […]

Crite | New Monster for Fifth Edition

It’s time that I took another classic monster from the ’80s and gave it some D&D stats. This time, we’ve got Crites, the little buggers from the Critters franchise. Here are their statistics for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition both in individual and swarm forms. Crite The crites are the main antagonists and monsters of the Critters […]

Graboid | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Continuing my series on Halloween monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition, it’s time that I update a classic: graboids! If you aren’t sure what a graboid is, they’re the subterranean worm things from the Tremors movie series. I remember watching the original Tremors back when I was kid in 1990. I thought it was […]

Dokh Nuzegh | New Monster for Fifth Edition

Dokh nuzegh (DOKE nu CHAY) roughly translates to “no magic dog” in Goblin. Certainly, the “no magic” part is accurate. Dokh nuzeghs have an innate hatred of magic. They hate magic so much, in fact, that they will run at top speeds for a mile or longer to find and kill a magic-user. The “dog” […]

Doctor Piersym, Bove, and The Storm Lady | New BBEG for Fifth Edition

“Why do you have to obey the charm of the Golden Cap?” Dorothy asked. “That is a very long story,” answered the leader of the Winged Monkeys, with a laugh; “but as we have a long flight before us, I will pass the time by telling you about it, if you wish.” “I would very much […]

Stat Anything – Hypnotoad | New Monster for Fifth Edition

Hypnotoad is a large toad-like creature that has large oscillating multicolored eyes and emits a droning hum. His eyes glow all the time. The toad apparently uses these as a power of hypnotism on surrounding people and animals. Hypnotoad hypnotizes sheep into a pen at a pet contest and then hypnotizes the judges and the audience into […]

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 […]
