The Jabberwocky

Converted to 5e for my own reference to play The Gardens of Ynn (and/or The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror). The Jabberwock is a strange dragon-like creature, with a long neck, bulging eyes, rodent-like incisors, and wide, grasping humanlike hands. The Jabberwock is a herald of intoxication. Where it passes, things behave drunkenly. Those who meet […]

The Questing Beast

Converted to 5e for my own reference to play The Gardens of Ynn.  Conversion is abbreviated for faster play. The strange creature has the head and neck of a snake, the body of a leopard, the haunches of a lion, and the feet of a hart.[1] Its name comes from the great noise that it […]

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, […]
