EN5ider #282 - Villain Spotlight: Skrivena Moc

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!

The A Touch More Class Kickstarter was a huge success and we are grateful to everyone who checked out the project, shared it, and especially those who pledged. Thank you! Some rewards have already gone out so take a look at the project updates if you haven't yet.

Lately on EN5ider:
  • #282. Villain's Spotlight: Skrivena Moc. Usually found deep within a dungeon near the site of a bloody battle, the blade Skrivena Moc seems at first to be a powerful weapon able to sear foes with fire and strike through even the toughest armor. What more it speaks to its wielders, offering advice and admiration in equal parts—but only to gain their trust, convincing them that their unnatural attachment to it is nothing to fear all the while it slowly consumes their very soul! This devious intelligent magic item and creature was written by Andrew Engelbrite and illustrated by Rachel Maduro.
  • #281. ZEITGEIST #7 - Schism: Part 2. In this 37-page entry in the ZEITGEIST Adventure Path the party heads north to a glacial rift controlled by frost giants loyal to the Obscurati, and once there they must reach a frozen lich and trade Leone’s soul for Grappa’s aid.
  • #280. Mini-Adventure: The Shuggin's Heist. This mini-adventure can be easily included into any city where there are thieves—in particular the trio of Gribbles, Big Sam, and Escraz. These burglars have trespassed onto the manor of a powerful mage and stolen a potent artifact, a deck of enchanted cards that have quickly turned the entire heist into a debacle that's garnered the entire settlement's attention. Several of the watch have already been injured trying to bring these brigands to justice and the PCs are called in to handle the situation, but can they? This mini-adventure for 4-5 PCs of 6th level (and its randomized elements) was written by Tyler Omichinski, with illustration by Claudio Pozas and using a map by Dyson Logos.
  • #279. Hazards of the High Seas. With the Ghosts of Saltmarsh out there in the world it would be remiss of EN5ider not to release some content to help get your seafaring adventures out onto the water! Jeff Gomez has penned an excellent article in Hazards of the High Seas that details a 20 entry hyperlinked table of plot hooks, chance aquatic encounters, and maritime intrigue ideal to roll on whenever the question arises: what's that over the bow!?
  • #278. Top Shelf Components. All too often 5E groups wave away material components that are inexpensive, but there's no reason that aspect of spellcasting can't be made more exciting and engaging! In this EN5iderissue there are more than two dozen new material components (both expensive and otherwise) that modify and improve the spells they are used to cast, giving both mages and priests plenty of motivation to pay more attention to the reagents they need to work their magic. Written by Andrew Engelbrite; illustrated by Phil Stone.

Skrivena Moc is a wonderful magic item, obviously inspired by Glirendree in Larry Niven's wonderful story "Not Long Before The End."
