Lately on EN5ider:
  • 477. Alien Gods and Eldritch Secrets. This article presents distant alien intelligences to incorporate into the realms of medieval fantasy, along with details of the cults that worship them and what elements of their nature can be comprehended by mortals. Behold the Great Nothingness known as Axu-Nagos, Saukkassus the Dreamer, and the Maker of Monsters Mortulos—and taste the power they offer with the Book of Dreams or potent aberrant transformation spell. Dementedly designed by Anthony Pryor, illustrated by Júlio Rocha.
  • 476. Mini-Adventure: Tarnishing a Reputation. A group of doppelgangers are seeking a hidden portal that will allow them to bring thousands of their kind out of exile to invade. Unfortunately the map that would guide them was disguised inside an enchanted locket taken from their now dead leader—jewelry that has found its way to the party! This mini-adventure for 4–5 PCs of 3rd–5th level was dastardly designed by Marc Kenobi, illustrated by Jori Hollander, and features the cartography of Dyson Logos.
  • 475. Monstrous Menagerie: Explosive Undead. Regular zombies failing to inspire fear? Reaching for more from your skeletons? Look no further! This article includes the high-flying corpse-throwing carrion swarm (CR 8) along with a trio of statistics for diseased zombies: the crepitus (CR 2), crepitus elite (CR 6), and devastating crepitus swarm (CR 16). Damnably designed by Mike Myler, illustrated by Gui Sommer.
  • 474. Adventure: Ashes to Ashes. In the cold tundra of western Laskia there is a famous establishment that people travel from far across Elissar to visit: the Redstone Spa. The Ashe family have run it for generations but there are rumors that a rivalry is brewing between the sons and daughters of the proprietor Layla, and as she reaches the end of her life her offsprings’ pursuit to succeed her is becoming vicious. It’s said that several of their acquaintances have disappeared under mysterious circumstances, and talk about the Redstone Spa is now just as likely to be stories of siblings at odds as of the place’s beauty. This adventure for 4–5 PCs of 2nd level was desirably designed by Mike Myler, illustrated by Joyce Mauriera and Xanditz, and features cartography by Dyson Logos and Russ Morrissey.
  • 473. Magic Items: Advanced Parasitic Weapons. Getting tired with glowing swords and floating gems? Has that old bag of tricks lost its charm? Consider rewarding adventurers with loot they can really love—specifically the kind that loves them back. Within this issue are five such symbiotic magic items (the blood swarm, burrowing crystal, fel worm, shell swarm, and soulshadow caul) that feed upon their hosts in exchange for incredible abilities like Swarm Vomit, Worm Lash, and Wound Burst. Disturbingly designed by Tyler Omichinski, illustrated by Rafael Benjamin.
