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 […]

D6. Hall of Lost Grandeur

There were too many rooms in this dungeon that were essentially “break down door and kill the orc”.  Mixed it up by changing some of the room encounters.  This was the last time they encountered the stonewalker spirit as he took over statues to harass the party. The party got surprise and the red onryoki died in the first […]

okami leader Shizu

I had this NPC harass the party throughout the adventure withdrawing before she could be cornered.  They eventually pinned her at the Lake Bed (see tactics below).  But she eventually became a respected enemy and instead of killing her they knocked her out and used the sacred brush to rewrite her memory and alignment.  She […]
