Today Epic Monsters is headed even deeper into the rural regions of the USA with a personal favorite of mine, something of an oddity you absolutely do see in bars throughout the states. Whether you just like cute things, weird americana, or rabbits, or hate all three, you’ll find it hard to hate the jackalope!
EN5ider loves a properly duplicitous group and the Graven Sculptors are among the most cunning, seeming to offer an amicable trade of gold for a reliable helper that makes the lives of common folk far easier to bear. What none of their customers realize however is that each is a spy that reports back all that it sees or hears, often leading to the downfall of a settlement as its secrets become the property of the sly doppelganger craftsfolk!
This edition of Mythological Figures has been in the queue for a long time now and after doing the research, I wish I’d have gotten to her sooner. We're taking a look at the incredible Pirate Queen Ching Shih!
Today's EN5ider article is perfect for groups in the midst of a nautical campaign (a hobgoblin commander and his seafaring goblin crew are ready to spread terror on the open waves!) and is hot on the heels of the eighth installment of the ZEITGEIST Adventure Path, wherein the adventurers get their first clear shot at taking the offensive and going after the leaders of the Obscurati!
EN5ider's going old school today but making use of Fifth Edition's newer trappings to make gritty, realistic campaigns more engaging on the maintenance-front without things getting bogged down by excessive lists or the minutiae of equipment! What does that even mean? Read onward!
We’re getting positively colonial today in Mythological Figures with the man most often credited with finding the United States of America. I’m of course talking about the Delaware River-crossing, (not really) cherry tree-chopping, ironic enemy of hero worship George Washington!
Is the thought of conjuring yet another mephit exhausting to you? Then today's EN5ider is right up your alley! Check it out to see five brand spanking new low CR elementals ideal for summoning, including in a fight to spice things up for the party, or even as familiars!
This EN5ider issue is for an intelligent weapon with much more than a simple curse, and by the time a new wielder realizes just how insidious the sword is it is often too late to stop the demonic blade Skrivena Moc from consuming their soul!
EN5ider continues delving into the intrigue of ZEITGEIST with today's installment into the steampunk adventure path, bringing a narrative close to the 7th module in the series (expect a companion PDF filled to the brim with NPC and monster statistics later this month).
The Mythological Figures column has been hijacked by builds using the material from A Touch More Class for a while now: Sherlock Holmes as a savant, Nikola Tesla as a tinkerer, Billy the Kidd as a gunfighter, Paul Bunyan as a monster tamer alongside Babe the blue ox, Harry Houdini as a fatebender, and Zhang Zhou as a geomancer. Today though we’re switching it up a bit and calling up a class from the original A Touch of Class.
The Mythological Figures column / A Touch More Class experiment has thus far seen: Sherlock Holmes (using the savant), Nikola Tesla (built as a tinkerer), Billy the Kidd (the gunfighter), Paul Bunyan (a monster tamer alongside Babe the blue ox), and last week Harry Houdini (fatebender in the house!) The Kickstarter is live right now (go pledge if you haven’t!) so I’m continuing the series, although today we’re going way, way back to the distant past, far from the literary and historical figures we’ve recently looked at.
