Greco-Roman Ettin

I am currently running my players through an O5R (D&D 5e hacked to feel and play like OSR) version of Odyssey of the Dragonlords and decided to google up some monsters to see for inspiration and found this (and other) great entries.  I like this version of the ettin and I also like the examples given. […]

alienist assassin

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.   The original was a librarian (a rogue) who had made contact with […]

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 […]
