Demons Part 14: Vrock (Best of the Bestiary)

We're almost out of the Abyss, my friends! We're so close! Just two more! Y'know, for such a simple monster, they sure gave the Vrock a lot of flavor text! There's not much in that flavor text, mind you. Boiled down simply, a Vrock is a dull-witted monster that loves carnage and pain. They do love… Continue reading Demons Part 14: Vrock (Best of the Bestiary)

Demons Part 13: Shadow Demon (Best of the Bestiary)

Only three left... We're nearing the end, folks! Then we get to talk about Devils for a few months! Then we get to talk about dinosaurs for a month! And that's all before we go into the dragon's den for another six months! Oh god, I'm going to be on the D section for the… Continue reading Demons Part 13: Shadow Demon (Best of the Bestiary)

On Making a Dungeons and Dragons Movie

Yesterday, I and my friends gathered at my apartment for another D&D session. The party was fresh-off of killing their first dragon and were riding high as they adventured into an underwater temple. To shake their newfound egos, I (the DM) decided to put them up against a brutal double-battle. After defeating the guardians of… Continue reading On Making a Dungeons and Dragons Movie

Demons Part 12: Quasit (Best of the Bestiary)

It's time to talk about the ultimate fodder monster for the demonic army. It's time to discuss the Quasit. The flavor text is virtually non-existent. The Quasit is a weak demon infesting the Lower Plane, plotting mischief to make up for their physical weakness. Demon lords will often use these monsters as spies. That, or… Continue reading Demons Part 12: Quasit (Best of the Bestiary)

Demons Part 11: Nalfeshnee (Best of the Bestiary)

Last week, the Marilith set the new standard for the demons. Finally, we've reached the point where the demons become interesting, right? So, does that trend continue today? Or is this next demon just another mediocre beast meant to fill time in a campaign? It's the ladder. Although to be fair: it's still pretty cool.… Continue reading Demons Part 11: Nalfeshnee (Best of the Bestiary)

Demons Part 10: Marilith (Best of the Bestiary)

The temple was strewn with body parts. We concluded that the cultists had summoned a powerful demon and not lived to regret it. Not wanting to get hacked to pieces ourselves, we cut short our expedition and returned to the village of Hommlet with our tails between our legs. Rufus and Burne had a good… Continue reading Demons Part 10: Marilith (Best of the Bestiary)

Demons Part 9: Manes (Best of the Bestiary)

Have no pity for this damnable wretch. Bloody thing could grow up to be a Demon Lord one day. -Emirikol the Chaotic Now, at last, we reach the end of the demonic chain of command. It's time to talk about the foot-soldiers of the demon army. The monster that will likely be the most common… Continue reading Demons Part 9: Manes (Best of the Bestiary)
