Running a 5th edition Oriental Adventure campaign based on some rules I converted a while back. Basically one big playtest. The players found an earth elemental gem which summons a Japanese equivalent of an earth elemental. Here is the PC version. TOICHI no KANSEN Large elemental Armor Class 17 Hit Points 126 Speed 30 ft., burrow 30 ft. […]Read more "TOICHI no KANSEN"

Ophelia, high-priestess of UNITY, the Iron God. I diverged a little from the original and made her look more like an angelic statue than gargoyle playing on the weeping angel idea.

I swam and swam, but they overcame me – […]Read more "MENACE MANUAL: Fundamental of Air and Smoke"

Has the same affect and can […]Read more "MENACE MANUAL: ELDER SMOKE ELEMENTAL"
