Shura no Oni

Inspired by Sekiro. Shura (修羅 Carnage) is what those who go on killing eventually become. They don’t remember why, but they are simply enraptured and kill solely for the joy it brings them. These oni are uncontrollable and the best the oni lords can do is point them in a direction and hope they do […]

INFESTED STATUE

Another monster stolen from Sekiro – the Immortal Monk.  My PCs bypassed these as well as one of my players had played Sekiro and when he saw a giant centipede burst out of a monk statue he told the party to run.  Built of a flesh golem. Part of the Hungry Storm adventure (a combination […]

GYOUBU MASATAKA ONIWA

Played this today, turning into a dragon was key. Without it, the fight would have been shorter and not as interesting. The total hit point was 300 for the shogun/dragon, once the dragon was killed the shogun reset to 150 hps effectively making for a 3 phase fight. Worked well. Thanks for the ideas ENWORLD! The dragon-spirit […]

The Sakura Dragon 桜竜

Inspired by the Sekiro boss – the Divine Dragon – here is the sakura dragon.  Created for my Oriental Adventure Campaign but I really don’t have a use for him.  CR is low to reflect the fact that he is a gimmick boss in Sekiro and very easy. THE SAKURA DRAGON Huge dragon, neutral Armor […]

GREAT SHINOBI OWL

A reward in my Oriental Adventures campaign.  Posted here for my PCs to reference. I am using the nemuranai tag for OA magic items since in Japanese Mythology magic items are not forged or made (this is seen as disrespectful to the indwelling spirit).  Instead the items awaken through various processes – spontaneously, or through powerful […]
