In this set of blog entries I aim to convert the original 1e Oriental Adventure monsters to 5e to provide some extra fodder for an OA campaign. I am using both the original 1e source and the updated 3e source as reference for the build. I left some of the 3e spells intact – as the DM you will […]Read more "OA BESTIARY: BISAN"
Technically, this is an alien creature so it sits under the Xenos category. Though it could quite happily live beside the other magical beasts wrought by mad wizards like bullette and owlbear. FERANTH Large monstrosity, unaligned Armour Class 18 (natural armour) Hit Points 218 (19d10+114) Speed 50 ft., burrow 30 ft. STR 19 (+4) DEX […]Read more "XENOS: FERANTH"
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. Because the game finished prematurely Ophelia is somewhat incomplete. Her spell-list is still 3.5e and I had no fully converted it yet. The […]Read more "ROGUES GALLERY: Ophelia, High Priestess of UNITY"

She was easily broth […]Read more "Rogues Gallery: Tech-Priestess Zara"

She was just happy to get out of the accursed ship. SILA […]Read more "CAPTAIN SILA DESAULIS"
After a bit of hiatus and a bunch of side adventures the PCs have entered the Divinity and started the final adventure of the Iron Gods Adventure Path as they seek to destroy UNITY. First encounter is with a fully operation annihilator robot. UNITY spoke to them as they entered the Divinity and in my […]Read more "ANNIHILATOR ROBOT"
Another creature on The Revenge (the ship in Expedition to the Barrier Peaks). The horse cactus pineto. Converted from 7th edition Gamma World (4e version). I still think using 4e monster design philosophy with 5e rules produces much better monsters than the straight up 5e rules. PINETO (Horse Cactus) Large plant, unaligned Armour Class 13 […]Read more "XENOS: Pineto"
