The Leaping Mother | Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

“Don’t worry, child. Sunlight’s coming soon. Sunlight’s coming.” The young mother wiped away her own tears and stared to the dark west, as she held the playful infant close to her chest. The Graywood Forest rocked gently in the breeze, leaves thick with spring verdancy. Inches away from her bare feet was a sharp drop, […]

Hey all! I’ll probably be somewhat quiet this evening because I’m hard at work on writing The Secret of Forsaken Peak.
