Who hasn't ventured into a dungeon with psionic dangers and psychic threats? It's practically a rite of passage. Today however, EN5ider asks you all: have you delved into a labyrinth that is itself a potent consciousness possessing mighty mental powers?
Today’s entry in Epic Monsters isn’t the most epic yet, but it’s on its way there: a portrait of modern religion’s greatest villain as he plummets from the heavens, that dastardly falling angel Lucifer! This is the first if three increasingly powerful builds: Falling, Fallen, and Lord of Hell.
The annual day of pranks is fast approaching and EN5ider has an article sure to help with injecting a bit of (likely much needed) levity into your games: 10 prank-oriented enchanted trinkets ranging from a barrel of sea monkeys to friendly joybuzzers, omni-dimensional dribble glasses, talk rocks™, and much more!
“My high charms work, and these, mine enemies, are all knit up in their distractions. They now are in my power.” If you’re thinking that I’m talking about the central character in Shakespeare’s The Tempest, you know today’s entry in Mythological Figures is Prospero!
“That, if I then had waked after long sleep, will make me sleep again | and then in dreaming, the clouds me thought would open | and show riches ready to drop upon me, that when I waked I cried to dream again.” If you know who today’s entry in Mythological Figures is already, unlike me you’d have answered that televised trivia show question with The Tempest and won the game: Caliban!
Keeping a medieval city clean is not an easily handled matter or one to be ignored—and that's where the Gutter Guild comes in, cleaning up sewers by wrangling cubes, jellies, oozes, and puddings through the passages below!
“Then I must be thy lady: but I know | When thou hast stolen away from fairy land… | Your buskin'd mistress and your warrior love, | To Theseus must be wedded, and you come | To give their bed joy and prosperity.” The thespians among you likely already know who I’m quoting, but to everyone else take heed for today Mythological Figures considers the Faerie Queen Titania!
You might say that EN5ider is getting a little Moreau in this latest issue—today's entry is all about a quartet of exciting new chimeras! Come on over, grab up a goatrilla, and strap yourself in for some excellent monster designs!
Today’s Epic Monster entry is surprisingly, terrifyingly historical, drawn from the mythologies of the Māori—a monstrous bird able to kill creatures as big as 500 pounds. If you said Haast’s eagle you’d be right, but we’re calling it by its ancient name: the poukai!
Will your adventurers simply slay their accuser in today's mini-adventure from EN5ider, or will they choose instead to brave the ruins of his clanhold to prove their innocence and bring an end to the woes of the Greymail dwarves?
EN5ider is going full-on Vulcan today with a new suite of calculated spells used by the enigmatic mathematician-mages known as the Esoteres—plus the latest installment of the ZEITGEIST Adventure Path and a new set of free PDFs!
Since we saw Captain Nemo last week in Mythological Figures today the Epic Monsters column is keeping to the LXG theme and going after the ever unseen rogue, a fellow that drank too quickly and deeply from the wishing well before regretting his choice in the final moments of his life: the Invisible Man!
Today's issue of EN5ider gets down and dirty in Chokewater swamp, a bog of death and decay fiercely guarded over by an ancient power that deters trespassers by making use of a deadly servant: Jaxi the Blightgunner!
“Not a mistake has been made in the working. But we cannot prevent equilibrium from producing its effects. We may brave human laws, but we cannot resist natural ones.” Bold words from a brave and brilliant man, an inventor of the highest caliber, explorer of the deep blue, and anti-imperialist hero: Captain Nemo!
EN5ider knows the plights of the gamemaster. When your players look up at you, hope shining in their eyes as they ask if they can keep a litter of baby snow leopards, infant otyugh, or cooing newborn drake (who will surely die without love and care from the parents they so recently killed), we want you to say yes—and we have some rules to help guide you through that process!
The day many of you have been waiting for is finally here. Perhaps the best known Western mythological figure of all is hitting this column with his incredibly powerful fists—let’s see if it lives up to the task as we take on Hercules!
