Libris Monstrum #13: Worm That Walks Revisited

Libris Monstrum #13: Worm That Walks Revisited

Here we are, back again in the Libris Monstrum! Today we are revisiting our third entry: the worm that walks. Defining the trope as we recognize it is relatively recent, but that doesn’t mean the idea of a swarm monster hasn’t been around. Last time we explored some more noticeable ones such as Oogie Boogie and Kyuss himself, but we also mentioned an early version given to us by Lovecraft. As we revisit the worm that walks, I want to…

Libris Monstrum #12: Mimics Revisited

Libris Monstrum #12: Mimics Revisited

Of all the monsters to include in the Libris Monstrum, mimics were the one I was most skeptical about. It’s not that there isn’t anything to explore with mimics. Their history is interesting, but they are restricted to more modern, gaming mythologies than anything in the real world. When you voted on it I wondered what I would involve in my revisited portion. After some legwork I finally figured out what I would discuss. A Natural Form The thing about…

Re-Skinning Vampires Part 1

Re-Skinning Vampires Part 1

I have been meaning to write this article to get back into the re-skinning series for a while now. I wasn’t sure what it would be about initially, but when I did the Libris Monstrum about vampires and we talked about them on the illithid episode of the Untamed Rant, I just couldn’t help myself from going there for this article. In thinking about and planning for some vampire re-skins I ended up deciding that this would have to be…

Click on that link to head over to their original post for the month. You will find more entries commented at the bottom and they have also written a few posts on the subject themselves (both for the carnival and outside of it). I spent most of the…

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,…

These are going to include…

Wandering Dev Diary #3

Wandering Dev Diary #3

As always there is so much to work on and so little time. Especially with some of the real-life stuff going one. Nevertheless I have been doing my best to work on my projects. The most significant project in the past two weeks has been my first attempt at a published adventure. This adventure is a bit of a pet project and passion of mine. You see, it is based on the SCP universe. This is an internet-created community which…

Across The Planes Of Existence!

Across The Planes Of Existence!

Hey everyone! The latest Untamed Rant is out now, for all listeners. It features some talk about our favorite planes of existence from mirrors to nightmares. The vote for next month’s has also been completed. It will feature a topic that I really love: Multiclassing! Occasionally underrated and often difficult to balance choices, I look forward to discussing the possibilities with multiclassing.
