Oneiric Pudding

Another conversion for my own reference.  Lifted from “Through Ultan’s Door” and dropped in as a random encounter for Maze of the Blue Medusa.  Abbreviated 5e conversion below. Before the creature strikes it gives off an aura of dream visions.  Use any surreal art as an inspiration of what the PCs see.  Each must make […]

bodak geiko

These mobs were purposely created to show how the bad guys can use the Oiran class against them.  Was a fun encounter as the PCs realised they prefer not to be on the receiving end of the geiko’s buffing songs.   BODAK GEIKO Medium undead, chaotic evil Armor Class 15 (natural armor, tattered kimono) Hit Points 58 (9d8 + 18) Speed 30 […]

okami leader Shizu

Akinosa

The Japanese doppelgänger.  Residents of the gutted pagoda. The kumo are at war with the oni and okami. Built off the 5E/4E drider.

The Okami

The Okami are the spawn of Munasukaru.  Full bloodied Okami (i.e. their father was another oni or fiend) are ja noi oni.  Half blooded Okami (i.e. their father was a non-oni, in this case a hobgoblin bakemono) are either humanoids or monstrosities depending on what exactly is birthed. They both have similar appearances – long […]

Psathyrella, The Blue Medusa

I am currently prepping Maze of the Blue Medusa as the first part of my Clash of the Titans campaign.  Many of the monsters I just intend on swapping them with 5e equivalents and not worrying about CR – with a few exceptions.  Psathyrella is an exception. Here is the first draft/conversion for 5e.   Duelist, singer, […]

SEISHUKU UCHIHA

With the Oriental Adventure conversions complete back to my actual campaign which involves a tournament to win the Mortal Blade.  To make sense of these entries you will need to look at the adventure flowchart which gives context and explains my changes but it’s essentially a conversion of the Ruby Phoenix Tournament but with a […]
