Lately on EN5ider:
  • 486. Monstrous Menagerie: Perils of the Sky. Why should adventurers be bound to terra firma or the seas, delving below the earth into dungeons or out upon the oceans for plunder—why not take to the skies instead? This article reviews the many denizens of the air from elves to gnomes or warlords, introducing two new CR 7 aerial threats: the psionic brainstorm and hunting caelumos! Driftingly designed by Anthony Pryor, illustrated by Erik Davis Heim.
  • 485. Dangerous Scenarios: Bulette Spawning. Something's gone awry in the town of Meadowbridge—cattle lay slaughtered in the field, houses are locked tight, and its halfling denizens are holed up in the Haystack Inn. What troubles them? A bulette matriarch (CR 8) beneath the settlement that's spawning bulette hatchlings (CR 3) that are eating up all the small folk they can find! Dynamically designed by Marc Kenobi, illustrated by Phil Stone, and featuring the cartography of Dyson Logos.
  • 484. Adventure: Isle Slithers. Far removed from the mainland of Elissar, the people of Leapsheep rarely have any need for adventurers. Their recent troubles are unprecedented however, and in their desperation they’ve reached out to a noble on the mainland to hire help. They couldn’t have done so soon enough: the mysterious abductions plaguing the island are happening more and more frequently. To save Leapsheep Isle the party must explore this far flung bastion of civilization in the face of a diabolical threat as they reforge an ancient ritual to seal away an evil long forgotten. Includes a dire slitherer (CR 5), seaswarm (CR 2), slitherer (CR 3), and slitherer supreme (CR 14). This adventure for 4–5 PCs of 9th level was dubiously designed by Mike Myler, illustrated by Anastasia Emelyanova, and features the cartography of Dyson Logos.
  • 483. Enchanted Trinkets: Top-Shelf Trinkets. What's better than a bit of fine liquor? A bit of enchanted liquor! This batch of magical booze details incredible concoctions from the dreamy archfey's delight to a bolstering shot of confidence, communication-enhancing soliloquy wine, and more—plus essential drinking implements like Alvis Kegswill's pick-your-poison pouch flask or the jar of slick victory! Make libations a must have for your adventuring by picking from the bard's personal collection, turning a night of revelry at the tavern into not just a good time but an event unto itself. Designs distilled by Elizabeth Orchard, illustrated by Herman Lau.
  • 482. Mini-Adventure: Void Chrysalis. An ancient and primal force seeks to once more take hold in Elissar, an entity that consumes heat and light until all is as frozen as its soul. This chilling terror has been banished from the realms material but a relic able to bring it back—the Void Heart, a gemstone that distills the impossibly cold void into corporeal form—has reached chrysalis, its task nearly complete. For every drop of the entity it brings into the world the next winter in Elissar will last for another month, and its immediate effects are already troubling the land with only one gathered thus far. Delicately designed by Mike Myler as part of the Elemental Adventure Path (following EN5ider #481 - MA: Wildwynd's Return), illustrated by Yihyoung Li, and featuring the cartography of Dyson Logos and Russ Morrissey.
