Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 4 / Horror Part 6

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 4 / Horror Part 6

Hello everyone! Today I have another double topic featuring three characters from classic horror movies that would make interesting monsters or villains for your campaign! Freddy Krueger Freddy comes from the Nightmare on Elm Street film series by Wes Craven and is among the more famous slasher killers. What makes him interesting is the fact that the character does not exist in the real world, he is merely a fiction of our nightmares. Of course that isn’t wholly true as…

Resources For Every GM: Settings Part 4

Resources For Every GM: Settings Part 4

Today I have a bit of a different, light-hearted set of resources for you. These settings are chock full of inspirations as long as you are willing to look for them. Inspiration can be found anywhere and you might not even realize some of the ideas you might cook up for games like D&D in the most unlikely places. So today I have three settings produced by Nintendo that are generally geared to a younger and/or family friendly audience. Even…

Sub-Class: Oni-Blooded Sorcerer

Sub-Class: Oni-Blooded Sorcerer

Hello everyone and welcome to another self-imposed challenge! When I had the Twitterverse vote on these, which feels like months ago, I was very happy that the Oni-Blooded sorcerer came out as one of the things I should try to do. In the time since then I have managed to produce an entry of the Libris Monstrum that talks about oni and come up with some ideas on what I might do with this class. We’re going to start with…

Libris Monstrum #33: Genies Revisited

Libris Monstrum #33: Genies Revisited

Good evening everyone (or at least it’s evening right now). This article is a little late, as in: I’ve decided to delay the whole week by a day because I’ve been in a blarg and today (Tuesday) was a Monday. That being said, here we are returning to the genies! There is plenty to talk about here but I think our first entry on the subject did a pretty good job covering your classic genie, from the myths they were…

Reskinning: Tieflings & Liches!!!

Reskinning: Tieflings & Liches!!!

Here we are friends, a little late but that’s okay!! Today we have a special double reskinning article (complete with me giving up on the hyphen because I don’t know if it was necessary anyways!). Because we are focusing on two different topics, these are gonna be a little shorter. That being said, today’s topics are going to be tieflings and liches. First we will look at some alternatives for players who want to play interesting or unique tieflings. Then…

Libris Monstrum #32: Golems Revisited

Libris Monstrum #32: Golems Revisited

Welcome back to the Libris Monstrum and the revisit portion of our second series! Today we are going to talk about golems, those lumbering magical constructs that guard many a dungeon and wizard sanctum. Last time we touched upon a lot of the real world myths surrounding these things and where the D&D version seems to stem from. In looking for stuff to talk about today, I discovered a few things I had not realized. Golems that appear in various…

Libris Monstrum #31: Gorgons Revisited

Libris Monstrum #31: Gorgons Revisited

Hello everyone! Here we are at the start of the second revisit series! We begin to take a look back at the last 10 entries for the Libris Monstrum and some of the things I was unable to fit into our original outings. First up is the gorgon or, as we discovered is the more common name at table, the medusa. If you missed out on that entry go back and take a look. We talk about what gorgons are…

Re-Skinning: Warlock Patrons

Re-Skinning: Warlock Patrons

When this was the topic that was voted on by those of you over on Twitter, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do. I put the option in there because, frankly, the warlock patrons are pretty lacking. This isn’t to say that you cannot get a diverse set of warlocks. In fact, I think warlocks are probably one of the classes with the most diversity among builds. Between patron, pact type, spell selection, and invocation selection there…
