  • Empyrean: The Bipolar Demigods

    Hey! That’s just a synth from Alien: Isolation in Greek clothing! You can’t fool me, Wizards of the Coast! Empyreans are pretty cool! Sure, their designs are super boring! But their lore, despite only being four paragraphs long, is super flexible and fun to work with! On top of that, they’ve got some incredible stats, […]

  • Drow Elves: Masters of Edge- I mean, Darkness (Part 1: Lore)

    Such depravity. Such terrifying cruelty. They are the vile poison that plagues all elvenkind. -Nelar Autumnwell, elf cleric of Corellon Larethian Jesus, dude, this gave me some whiplash! The last four monsters didn’t have anything for lore! Then these dudes come along with nearly two whole pages of nothing but lore and flavor text! Buckle […]

Again, there really isn’t any specific lore to speak of. Nor a unique design. Both boil down to ‘it’s water that moves and speaks’. Nothing to bite […]

    Fire Elemental: BURN TO THE GROUND!

    How many kids are gonna get that joke? Actually, scratch that, how many of you period got that joke? Please tell, I’m most curious. Once again, the fire elemental doesn’t have any truly unique lore behind it. Nor does it have a compelling design; it’s fire that’s vaguely humanoid. Once again, the only thing there […]

  • Earth Elemental: The Rock Monster from Galaxy Quest

    Earth Elemental: The Rock Monster from Galaxy Quest

    I was gonna use a screenshot from the movie, but apparently those just don’t exist in the right aspect ratio, and I’ll be fucked if I’m gonna take the screenshot myself. So you just get a flat image of rocks. Sorry not sorry. Again, earth elementals don’t really have much lore to talk about. Nor […]
