The Goblin Mine | The Secret of Forsaken Peak Part 1

This entry is part of an ongoing series that follows the development of The Secret of Forsaken Peak megadelve project that myself and Justin David Russell are working on.

Tuuk the Thief of the Book | The Secret of Forsaken Peak

Yesterday, I held a contest on Instagram to name a goblin that's going to be one of the bosses of the first chunk of The Secret of Forsaken Peak adventure. Things got a little out of hand.

Dragging behind it like a dead weight is a … Continue reading Skulking Cysts | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Skin Kites | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Back in third edition, they had a few somewhat "controversial" books. One such book was Libris Mortiis, the Book of Undead. This book was full of all sorts of creepy, crawly, body-horrory type spells, monsters, and special options for 3rd.
