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 […]Read More CLASH OF THE TITANS
I am running a modified Odyssey of the Dragonlords campaign called Clash of the Titans. My players finally faced off against Sydon (who I renamed Typhon to make it more in line with Greek mythology). A fun time was had by all. I eliminated the Kentamane battle entirely. The original Sydon was pretty boring, looked […]Read More typhon (sydon)
I am running a modified Odyssey of the Dragonlords campaign called Clash of the Titans. My players are at the end of the campaign as written investigating the tower of the big-bad. I wanted to have a beholder at some point in the game, but beholders dont really fit a Greco-Roman campaign. So I created […]Read More juno, harpy noble
As part of the Clash of the Titans campaign I am currently running – a modified Odyssey of the Dragonlords campaign – the players have a running feud with one of the villain’s cronies named Gaius. He has a silver dragon named Argyn (which everyone pronounced Argon) an evil silver dragon. When the party raided […]Read More argon (argyn), tarnished silver dragon
In my current campaign called the Clash of the Titans – a modified Odyssey of the Dragonlords campaign – the players fought a “green” dragon called Hexia. The original was just an adult green dragon which my party of 6 to 7 level 12 PCs would eat up. So I created a modified version. The entire […]Read More hexia, mercury dragon
In the game The Golden Axe there are skeletons who are tougher than the mini-bosses. This spawned a joke about “beware the skeletons with the golden axe”. Here is the skeleton. He is on a random encounter for my Clash of the Titans game. A rebuild of my Gasha-Dokuro skeleton from Japan. In my game, […]Read More golden axe skeleton
For my daughters 13th birthday my wife made this Galaga cake after I introduced her to old arcade games I played in the 80s she really took to Galaga. Which has spawned a family “Top 5” competition.Read More Cake! Galaga!
Back in the day my wife and I (two dark elves in the front – Solomani and Maline) played EQ religiously. Had this commissioned as a commemoration of those long gone halcyon days.Read More Farghen’s Heroes
In my current Clash of the Titans campaign one of the characters picked up a mutation that allowed his character to smell magic. I ended using the following table to simulate this: Magic Generally – Ozone. Evocation – Coriander. Conjuration – Black pepper. Transmutation – Earthy smell. Abjuration – Freshly Baked Bread Divinition – Chocolate. Enchantment […]Read More what does magic smell like?
I have always liked the idea of level drain as a representation of terror/horror as the given monster actually scares the PC. I never liked the fact you could be de-leveled back to level 1 – though I never saw this happening back in 1e days, PCs were just too careful when dealing with level-draining […]Read More Energy/Level Drain for 5e
My 5e games are fairly lethal – no resurrection magic of any kind, hit points capped at level 10 but monsters not modified and only 1 action a turn. My son calls them “the Dark Souls of D&D campaigns”. The only way my PCs get a rez is if they escape (or are saved) from […]Read More Bonfire for D&D
