• Mind Flayer: A Love Letter to H.P. Lovecraft

    Time for one of the big ones, everybody! This is an essential D&D monster! Let’s see if it lives up to the hype! Lore: Cosmic Conquerors Illithids, or Mind Flayers, are tyrants and slavers on a cosmic scale. Long ago, they ruled entire worlds and races, many of which we’ve covered in the past. Their […]

Of all the countless isekai anime to come out in the last five years, there is no doubt that this one made the biggest splash (not counting sequels, like Re:Zero season 2). It […]
