Zipper Demon (Cerniera Daemonium)

Working my way through Vornheim.  Some clever ideas here for running a city campaign.  But what spiked my curiosity were the unique takes on some monsters and some of the unique monsters.  Can definitely imagine using these in my 5e OSR game.   This would probably work well as a template as well. Based on […]

Goatscorpion

Working my way through Vornheim.  Some clever ideas here for running a city campaign.  But what spiked my curiosity were the unique takes on some monsters and some of the unique monsters.  Can definitely imagine using these in my 5e OSR game.   Goat’s head, giant scorpion’s body. It despises innocence and will attack the […]

Nuclear Dragon (Gloomium)

Living in the varying depths of Middergloom, these rare dragons occasionally rise to the surface world for reasons known only to them. The younger the dragon, the higher up they are usually found, favouring large chambers in which to spread their large translucent, gloomium-hued wings and fly; using the space to soar through the rifts […]

Gunlock

By player request, inspired by the Gungeon final boss – The Lich.  GUNLOCK  Gunesis 1:1 In the beginning, the Gungeon was formless and void, and bullets moved over the face of the deep. Studying the mystical arts takes a lot of time and effort. Some find this overly onerous or lack the means to learn, […]

Heavy Metal Warlock

One of my players thought it would be cool if there was a warlock version of the Child of the Atom sorcerer – a warlock built around radiation, mutation, and nuclear power.  Inspired after the party met some salt dryads (stolen directly from Deep Carbon Observatory) who,  while chatting to the party, told them they […]

Arcane Chocobo (Giant Chicken) Familiar

A chicken familiar (hen) exposed to high levels of radiation during an adventure turns into a chocobo-like creature. Eventually, my player lost this familiar, re-summoned, and got a demonic version and eventually got the arcane version.  It’s the same spirit just taking different forms.  The chocobo is called Diabexes – because it’s fat and loves […]

Identify (House Rule)

 5e identify makes identifying magic items too easy, 1e/2e is too hard and I feel its onerus for both me, as the DM, and the PCs. So my goal with this to not have it as onerous as 1e, etc, but not so easy as 5e and, as the DM, not track anything: Automatically know […]

Fighter: Mighty Deeds

A 5e interpretation of the Dungeon Crawl Classic “Mighty Deeds”.  The goal is to be less mechanically sophisticated or impactful than the Battlemaster but to give the type of things the Battlemaster does to all fighters – as it seems the Battlemaster qualities – swashbuckling/heroic actions – should be available to all fighters. Mighty Deed […]
