At the dawn of time, war between gods and titans left the landscape of Thylea forever changed. Thousands of years later, the first mortals arrived, carried by ship and dragon. The Dragonlords were the champions who overthrew the Titans 500 years ago and forged the Oath of Peace. But the power of the Oath has […]

The “Oku” (Cynidiceans)

While reading the Maze of the Blue Minotaur I got a Lost City/Cynidiceans vibe from the Oku.  Not sure if that was an inspiration but the Cynidiceans also wear animal masks, live in a dream-like state and believe they are the animals the mask portrays.  The Oku are a bit more aware of their surroundings, […]

From the Lost City Adventure (actually, the Expert set but this is the only place I have seen it used).  Weird monster will use it as a potential encounter in Maze of the Blue Medusae as a cannibal critic “boss”.

Oneiric Pudding

Another conversion for my own reference.  Lifted from “Through Ultan’s Door” and dropped in as a random encounter for Maze of the Blue Medusa.  Abbreviated 5e conversion below. Before the creature strikes it gives off an aura of dream visions.  Use any surreal art as an inspiration of what the PCs see.  Each must make […]

These chameleonoid anti sorcerers come forth from the ruins of Nyctopolis to contest any human claim to the Maze. They are typically accompanied by an escort of 1d4+1 Thrall Mammals, usually, white apes, controlled with a pearl white globe — if they are […]

Barbarians of Thylea

Harking back to Conan and the original D&D barbarian class. The barbarians of Thylea, in general, detest magic and those who use it. They will, at low levels of experience, refuse to employ any sort of magic item if they recognize it as such. They will often seek to destroy magic items, and if successful […]
