Two-Headed Giant Vulture

My PCs recently derailed a whole bunch of my planning through creative play – which is fine, the surprises make the game more entertaining for me this way – they ended up in the Slumbering Ursine Dunes and here are converted monsters for my own reference with abbreviated 5e stat blocks.   Its a really […]
