Quetzal the Sidh Sorceress-Queen

I used the adventure “Spire of Quetzal” as the exit from the Gardens of Ynn.  My PCs did what they could to avoid combat with Quetzal and after she possessed a character, knocked that character out before fleeing back to their homeward – The Ninth World.  Here are her 5e stats.  I changed Quetzal to […]

Sutolore the Outcast Varrangoin

My PCs ran from this guy abandoning treasure in fear.  Posted here for reference. Varrangoins resembled emaciated man-sized humanoids with huge leathery bat wings, terrifying skull-like faces, and dark grey or black skin. Their tails were barbed on their ends and filled with a potent poison.[1]Varrangoins were extremely sensitive to sunlight. Each varrangoin had an […]

My players keep traveling back to Ynn to use the Vats (they summoned a modern to help them figure out how to use it).  Each time they visit I add unique encounters drawn from Alice.  Decided to add the Red Queen and make her a sidhe taking liberal inspiration from a Red and Pleasant land […]

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 […]
