D&D 5E EN5ider #512 - Monstrous Menagerie: Tree Trio

New treants: the ashen pine, hagedoorn, and wreant!

Treants can be as diverse as their rooted kin throughout the forest and should provide as fun of an encounter as any beast. Consider throwing an ashen pine (CR 9) at adventurers, surprising them with a needled giant that's overcome the touch of flame. The hagedoorn (CR 9) is a subtler foe and harder still to completely subdue, and though slightly weaker the wreant's (CR 8) sorrowful assault is something few parties will easily forget. Deciduously designed by Marc Kenobi, illustrated by Júlio Rocha. Only in EN5ider, the weekly 5E online magazine!

  • 512. Monstrous Menagerie: Tree Trio. Treants can be as diverse as their rooted kin throughout the forest and should provide as fun of an encounter as any beast. Consider throwing an ashen pine (CR 9) at adventurers, surprising them with a needled giant that's overcome the touch of flame. The hagedoorn (CR 9) is a subtler foe and harder still to completely subdue, and though slightly weaker the wreant's (CR 8) sorrowful assault is something few parties will easily forget. Deciduously designed by Marc Kenobi, illustrated by Júlio Rocha.
  • 511. Puzzle: Interplanar Delicatessen. Too often two essential things are skipped over amidst the excitement of dungeon delving: eating and puzzles. The Interplanar Delicatessen offers a delightful solution to both these quandaries. Sure the adventurers are deadly, but are they canny and hardy enough to finish a plate of eyes-cargo, the pudding flambé, floating cubes, crystals, AND the surprise final course?! Deliciously designed by Andrew Engelbrite, illustrated by Júlio Rocha.
  • 510. Adventure: Horror on the Lysymachus. A brutal murder has occurred on a small merchant ship in mid-ocean. The party uncovers not only evidence of unnatural violence but an unwelcome and unseen presence aboard the ship as well—now they must deal with both the mysterious killer and an increasingly hostile crew! While the adventure is set in the world of Elissar, it takes place mostly at sea so is easily transferred to any campaign. Diabolically designed by Anthony Pryor for 4–5 PCs of 3rd–5th level, illustrated by Júlio Rocha, featuring cartography by Umut Comak.
  • 509. Dangerous Scenarios: Conflicting Charms. While journeying the party wanders directly into a spat between monsters and the plight of their proxies. An item of great value to a pair of dryads has been taken by a trio of harpies and the fey will do anything they can to get it back—even appealing to passing adventurers without the aid of magic! Discerningly designed by Charlie Brooks, illustrated by Yeysson Bellaiza.
  • 508. Enchanted Trinkets: Zlick Willy's Extended Catalog. Zlick Willy is back with a whole host of impressive new enchanted trinkets sure to delight! Catch a friend off guard with the hilarious bucket of fun, strike up a conversation with a stranger you can't understand without an informative dragonheart's ring, or otherwise get the party going with these unique and uniquely affordable magic items! Dependably designed by Elizabeth Orchard, illustrated by Hannah Seakins.
