Lately on EN5ider:
  • 384. To Stake A Vampire: Part 1. The Holdenshire Chronicles continue in To Slay A Dragon's sanguine sequel! Knighted following their triumph over the dread red dragon Cirothe, the adventurers enjoy a short reprieve before a dismal winter grips the countryside and the people around them become more despondent and angrier with every passing day. The region begins to suffer the effects of dreadful and ancient curses put into motion when the party were last in Deepcrest Chasm, unknowingly unleashing the primordial vampire lord Nemirtvi. In this first act the PCs undertake two quests: discovering the grisly corruption of foodstuffs in the towns, and then delving into the tomb of Hugo Weightman where they learn of heroes from long ago (the Order of Light). This adventure for 4 PCs of 7th level includes: three new traps, the amulet of the spectral grove, fiendish dire boar (CR 3), commoner swarm (CR 2), vampiric dire bear (CR 10), Penner the Pigfarmer (CR 6), and a cursed ghost (CR 11).
  • 383. Masterclass Archetypes: Tradecraft. There's a suite of fantastic character classes here on EN5ider and today's issue brings greater depth to three of them with new class archetypes for sneaky savant field agents, subtle noble spymasters, and observant watcher tinkerers (drone included). Blend seamlessly into new communities, direct your allies with silent efficiency, and rain down death from above via your clockwork companions! Masterfully designed by Peter Martin, illustrated by Júlio Cesar Oliveira Rocha.
  • 382. Intriguing Organizations: Arcane Investigation Unit. This article has everything needed to include the Arcane Investigation Unit in a campaign, bringing a taste of one of American television's longest running series into the realm of medieval fantasy! Whether the party are recruited into the AIU or simply work close with one of their investigators—like Sergeant Aelith Silverstreet, a CR 6 officer—this is an issue of EN5ider we definitely needed. Dutifully designed by Anthony Pryor, illustrated by Rachel Maduro, with interior art by Indi Martin.
  • 381. Dangerous Scenarios: Mutant Metal Eater. The more experienced a group of adventurers gets the less concerned they are with the threat posed by monsters they've already bested once. The mutant metal eater is no such monster—the creature the PCs are expecting to find is far deadlier! Includes a mutant rust monster (CR 8) and supermutant rust monster (CR 12). This Dangerous Scenario for parties of 5th–6th level or 8th–9th level was deviously designed by Chris Davies, illustrated by Indi Martin, with interior art by Guilherme Sommermeyer and cartography by Dyson Logos.
  • 380. Enchanted Trinkets: Magic in the Stacks. Dive deep enough into your local arcane library and you're bound to find more than dusty books and old scrolls—mages enchant all kinds of things to assist their studies. Peruse the volumes of any atheneum more efficiently with the help of an archivist's candle, protect your favorite tome with a bookwyrm, never let your pen run dry by using an endless inkwell, and avail yourself of the 8 other magic items listed in this studious issue in the Enchanted Trinkets series to make the most of your time performing arcane research (and sometimes adventuring too). Delicately designed by William Fischer, illustrated by Dana Braga.
