For The Love Of XP Part 2: Adding It To A Game

For The Love Of XP Part 2: Adding It To A Game

Greetings all! Tonight I have the sequel to an article I wrote a few weeks ago titled, For The Love Of XP. In it I go over experience points and how they have been used in various games and how the concepts of level and XP have disappeared from RPGs. I love many of these mechanics, but the lack of XP, for me, is something troublesome. I have spent a long time developing alternatives to strict combat XP and personal…

Libris Monstrum #18: Slaadi Revisited

Libris Monstrum #18: Slaadi Revisited

Today we are heading back into one of the monsters that is specific to the game of Dungeons & Dragons: the slaadi. Slaadi are still one of my favorite creatures out there, but it can be difficult to gather much information on them. Today I want to talk about some more slaad types and how you might be able to manipulate the salad concept for your own purposes. If you want a refresher on what these creatures are check out…

Re-skinning: Vampires Part 2

Re-skinning: Vampires Part 2

Last time we talked about taking a vampire stat block and tacking on some traits to make it unique. Simple things like making it a dwarf or dragonborn for an encounter a little more memorable than your average vampire. I also mentioned some possibilities, like gnolls or centaur, that could be truly frightening and might beef up the CR a bit. Today though, we are going to go crazy. Let’s talk about some creatures that you wouldn’t want to meet…

Libris Monstrum #9: Vampires

Libris Monstrum #9: Vampires

Good evening everyone! The Libris Monstrum has not come out for almost a month now (I think) and the main reason is because i wasn’t sure which monster I wanted to write about. You may be saying, “but you can just keep writing them so who cares which one is next!?” Well, you would be kind of right. The next one will be down to a vote, and while I do have some (specifically choosing 4 options) control over that,…
