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 […]

Sir Kargoth the First Death Knight

Originally appearing in Dungeon #150 as part of the Savage Tide Adventure Path I converted him for use in a dreamscape boss fight orchestrated by Ilsensine as part Dawn of the Overmind. It is one of two monsters that Demogorgon can summon to aide him in the boss fight – the other being Arendagrost. Two options […]

Monstrous Compendium: Visage
