Meet Blackbeard, Terror of the High Seas!

Mythological Figures & Maleficent Monsters, coming soon to Kickstarter, compiles Mike Myler's fantastic column here on EN World, with brand new art in a gorgeous full-colour book. Here's a quick look at a preliminary version of Blackbeard's entry.

What you can't see on that page spread are the details for Blackbeard's fuselit beard!

Hair Fuses (1/10 lb., 3 gp). These small wicks and glued strips powdered with gunpowder are worn in the hair, usually at the ends of long braids or in a voluminous beard. You can use an action or bonus action to light these fuses, rolling 1d12. On a 12, the fuses all ignite at once and you take 1d6 fire damage. Otherwise they burn for 1 minute and give you advantage on Charisma (Intimidation) checks, but disadvantage on all other Charisma checks.

Mythological Figures & Maleficent Monsters

Achilles. Lancelot. Robin Hood. Thor. Heroes, all.

The world is full of myths and legends which inspired those in our modern fiction and games. Iconic warriors and wizards, vampires and things from the deep, these legends are universally known.

Mythological Figures & Maleficent Monsters delves into these paragons of literature, fable, and folklore. From Ancient Greece to the Outer Realms, deepest Transylvania to the High Seas, you’ll meet champions and thieves, pirates and knights, demigods and fey queens, ancient evils and urban legends. Archetypal heroes meet exemplars of villainy like Blackbeard, Rasputin, Dracula, and Baba Yaga.

From Mike Myler’s popular column, this epic compilation of over 100 legendary heroes, villains, and monsters brings these characters to life for the 5th Edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game.
