Lucrephage

Shamelessly stealing this idea from Anomalous Subsurface Environment for my Clash of the Titan campaign.  This creature was created by Henchmen Abuse so all credit to him.  I’ve always liked the idea of treasure golems – or something similar – that protects treasure hoards or steals treasure from PCs.  Terrifying for heavily loaded PCs. The […]

Glass Minotaur

Shamelessly stealing this idea from Anomalous Subsurface Environment for my Clash of the Titan campaign.  This creature was created by Henchmen Abuse so all credit to him.  I used this as a support monster in a battle with a medusa who had the entire room mirrored so it was impossible to escape her gaze.  When […]

Greco-Roman Hydra

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 greek/roman monsters for inspiration and found this (and other) great entries.  I like this version of the hydra.  Here is a 5e version of the creature.

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 […]

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, […]
