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…

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…

Re-skinning: Barbarian Totems

Re-skinning: Barbarian Totems

Hello everyone! Today’s re-skinning article features something akin to what we discussed last time with the dinosaur druid. There are plenty of options for players in the Player’s Handbook of 5th Edition, but those options can be multiplied much further with a little help from the imagination. So, let’s take a look at a very simple way to add some flavor to your barbarian! Path of the Totem Warrior Your everyday barbarian tends to go down the path of the…

Re-skinning: Yeti Goblins!

Re-skinning: Yeti Goblins!

Good evening everyone! Tonight is a re-skin I am very happy you all decided to vote for. In fact, in thinking of how to go about it I kind of figured out a whole little new race of goblins that I want to make. Instead of talking about those or going crazy with designing them, I will stick to how to make yeti goblins. Hopefully this article will provide you with a fun alternative of goblins to use in your…

Re-Skinning: Dinosaur Druid!

Re-Skinning: Dinosaur Druid!

Let me tell you, I am so excited that this was the second place winner in the poll to decide what re-skinning topics would show up here on Notes of the Wandering Alchemist. Like many, I fell in love with dinosaurs long ago and that love never dies away. A significant portion of my undergrad career included studying dinosaurs and having watched the realization and acceptance of feathered dinos has been awesome. As you know, near the top of my…

An Early 2018 Update!

An Early 2018 Update!

It has been a while since I have done a real update here on the blog, so I thought I would take a few moments to share what has been going on with me and what we are doing here. As you may know (I have a tendency to repeat myself), I have been hard at work restraining the scope of what I am doing here at Notes of the Wandering Alchemist. So too have I been trying to relax…

Re-skinning: Making Your Spells Lovecraftian

Re-skinning: Making Your Spells Lovecraftian

Here we are, at the beginning of a new road for Notes of the Wandering Alchemist. Over the past few months I have been hard at work reigning myself in and figuring out my limits, desires, and capabilities. For that, I think I have been successful and as such comes a need to return to some of the things I used to do. The key to doing that was frequency and direction. In that regard we have two monthly articles…

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…
