How to Play as Spider-Man in Fifth Edition (And Still Keep Things Balanced)

Something I've been stewing on for a while: how to bring superpowers into Fifth Edition. I've had ideas for creating new classes and a few other things, but nothing really stuck.

Stat Anything: The Night King | New Challenge for Fifth Edition

I just finished up Game of Thrones (yeah, I know I'm late to the party).

Stat Anything: Gremlins (Mogwai) | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

This morning, while tossing and turning, I got the wild idea to create Gremlins from the 1984 Joe Dante movie. If you aren't familiar with gremlins, they are small, lizard-like creatures that live to cause havoc. They spawn from mogwai that have eaten after midnight and they multiply when you put water on them. In … Continue reading Stat Anything: Gremlins (Mogwai) | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The Ominmortis | Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition [Updated]
