Broodmother Skyfortress (5e)

I am currently using Odyssey of the Dragonlords as a skeleton for my Clash of the Titans campaign – a science-fantasy Greco-Roman camping set in the distant future of Earth. For those that are not familiar with Dragonlords, the campaign is split into two parts.  Part 1 is level 1 to 14 and part two […]
