The Garden of Vivid Decay

I took the cut content from Forest of Spirits and updated it for 5e and used it as part of the overall adventure.  I used cards to navigate the garden itself instead of mapping it out – just abstracted it away.  I had a minimum of cards the PCs had to explore otherwise they were […]

Anumaramon (Boss Fight)

We finished the Oriental Campaign today with a final battle with Anumaramon.  My PCs were level 20 and they just full on frontal assaulted the palace while their armies were engaging the Typhoon Guard.  I made it clear, the Typhoon Guard, which is mostly oni, would win if the PCs didn’t deal with Anumaramon and […]

The other interesting thing is that the Geisha pc (22 Charisma!) accepted the proposal from Prince Batsaikhar. She did this because she […]

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 […]
