Ranger | New Monster for Fifth Edition (366 Days of Monsters)

Warlock | New Monster for Fifth Edition (366 Days of Monsters)

This stat block kicks off my “monster of the day” series where I hope to create 366 new monsters between now, January 1st, and the end of the year, December 31st, 2020.

Martial Artists | New Scalable NPC for Fifth Edition

As a DM, I’m always on the lookout for good NPC challenges for my players. Unfortunately, most of the NPCs that are spread out among the three monster books (MM, VGtM, MToF) don’t always cover each and every challenge rating there is. And thematically, they can be a little all over the place. For example, […]

Koroxon | NPC for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition (Spoilers)

Disciple of Bzallin | New NPC for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The adventure Bzallin’s Blacksphere has a lot of interesting characters in it, as well as a fair amount of NPCs. For a normal-sized group, it’s a pretty challenging adventure. But my group has 6 characters and a shield guardian. So that means I need to scale it up considerably. This stat block for Bzallin’s disciples […]
