Trash Goblins for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Goblins aren't well-loved in the world. So it's no surprise that many take to garbage heaps to hide and build a new way-of-life for themselves. Over the years, these "trash goblins" (they hate that term, by the way) have developed a culture that revolves around refuse. It's in the waste of other humanoids they find … Continue reading Trash Goblins for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Junk Golems for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

While raggamoffyns are created by magical waste and happenstance, junk golems are the result of alchemy, engineering, and a twisted sense of imagination. These constructs are often found near waste disposal sites or near battlefields where scrap material is easy to come by. No two junk golems look the same, but they do share a … Continue reading Junk Golems for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Nothic Ingester for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Some nothics, driven by an overwhelming compulsion to reconnect to magic--even if they aren't quite sure why--take to desperate measures. Usually, this results in a lot of dead nothics. But sometimes, it creates potent aberrants, more horrible and weirder than the original nothic ever was. Nothic ingesters are created when a nothic consumes a great … Continue reading Nothic Ingester for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Bone Golems for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

A throwback to old-school Ravenloft, bone golems are built from the previously animated bones of skeletal undead. These horrors stand roughly 9 feet tall and weigh between 150 and 280 pounds. They are seldom armored and can easily be mistaken for undead, much to the dismay of those who make this error. How do Bone … Continue reading Bone Golems for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Monjas Malvadas for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Not all followers of Jesucristo are good. There are those who believe that their God's true power lies within his resurrection and that he is more of a spirit of vengeance than a benevolent martyr. Of course, an entire religion cannot be villainized because of the actions of a few extreme outliers. Regardless, the members … Continue reading Monjas Malvadas for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Phaerimm for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Phaerimm are powerful magic-using beings that move by natural levitation. They resemble upright cones, the widest part uppermost, and the point ending in a barbed stinger-tail. They are intelligent, inimical, and highly dangerous. The phaerimm like to live near others of their own kind (for mutual protection and the social satisfaction of vying with each … Continue reading Phaerimm for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Tomb Tappers for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Tomb Tappers, also known as thaalud, appear as tall, naked, sexless, and hairless humanoids with very hard, smooth, blue-gray skin, claws that can dig through solid rock, and great toothed mouths in their bellies. Their smooth, featureless heads have earned them the nickname “the faceless”. Tomb tappers get their name from their habit of burrowing … Continue reading Tomb Tappers for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Skullbats for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

It's not uncommon for a necromancer to have a whole bunch of spare parts lying around after building its army of skeletons. Instead of wasting these extra bits, the necromancer gets creative. And one product of their twisted sense of art are skullbats. A skullbat is exactly what it sounds like: a humanoid skull with … Continue reading Skullbats for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Spider Cats for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

You've got to hand it to the drow; if there's a way to mix in spiders with something perfectly normal, they'll do it. Case in point: inkizimu, or spider cats. Okay, sure, us surface dwellers love our domesticated feline companions, too. But would any of us want an eight-eyed, eight-legged version of one that binds … Continue reading Spider Cats for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Carrion Crawler Variants for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The carrion crawler is a classic Dungeons & Dragons monster. Today, I'm going to be creating a few variants for this crawling critter. What is a carrion crawler? Originally appearing in the 1975 Grey Hawk supplement, carrion crawlers are basically giant centipedes with poisonous tentacles. And, well... that's it. Ha! Not to knock them, but … Continue reading Carrion Crawler Variants for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
