Froghemoth

Continuing my conversion of older D&D monsters to 5e, here are two interesting monsters for you to use in your 5th ed. game: the korred (for low level play), and the froghemoth (made for higher level parties to face). The korred are forest fey, fond of singing, dancing and nature. Thematically, they are close to […]

Dark Creeper as seen in the 1st ed. Fiend Folio

Here are two more monsters to add to your 5e D&D games. First, the Dragonne, a sphynx like magical creature described as “cross between a brass dragon and a giant lion”.

Here’s my version of an Elder Brain… a mind flayer city’s god-like center of attention. I made it a Challenge 22 legendary creature, with lair and regional effects. It spawns a brain golem, a challenge 5 creature with mind blasting powers as well as slam attacks. This can make for a dangerously nasty encounter. Let […]

A bodak wonders the Abyss in search of victims...

I’ve been converting old monsters from AD&D that haven’t seen the light of day as (official) 5e critters. My goal obviously was to get the core of what made these monsters unique to work within the 5e ruleset and monster design guidelines. Here’s what I have for you with this post: Dark Creeper (Challenge 1/2) The […]

I went on a bit of a monster kick this weekend, only to see just how easy it was to take old AD&D monsters and turn them into 5e creatures. Here’s what I worked on… First, the Yuan-Ti Histachii. My version of this creature (a 1/2 Challenge monster) comes from the one found in the […]

One of the things I’ve had to deal with in the 5e game that takes place in the 2nd Ed. era of the Forgotten Realms is overland travel. That map is huge! And there are quite a few empty spots along the way (one of the reasons why I’m switching to the 3e map actually, […]
