(Not So) Legendary Actions

(Not So) Legendary Actions


Legendary Actions are one of the best-regarded mechanics of the 5th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons, providing DMs the tools to accurately portray the deadliness of higher-level creatures. You know you are in trouble when the dragon simply retaliates your sword slash with a tail sweep without even waiting for its own turn. This feature along with Legendary Resistance however is restricted to...   [click here for more]

0-Level Rules: Compleat Meat

0-Level Rules: Compleat Meat


Prepare for the thrill of being average or worse. Role playing games have a proud history of “hopeless characters,” dating back to the early days of Dungeons & Dragons. While most role players prefer acting the part of heroic characters, some relate better to average lunks, who, if suddenly thrust into a dangerous battle, would almost assuredly die a horrible death. ...   [click here for more]

Arcadian Blink Dogs

Arcadian Blink Dogs


Arcadian Blink Dogs are not related to blink dogs (long story, don't ask). They were bred in the upper planes to keep the growing cranium rat menace in Sigil in check. As the rats fled the City of Doors for the prime material some of the arcadian blink dogs followed them and can now be encountered very rarely in the larger cities of the Prime Material. These are CR 2 lawful good celestial (dogs)...   [click here for more]

Bruised and Contused


The world is a dangerous place. An adventurer can barely take a step without an orc trying to cave in their skull or a dragon sneaking in for a breath weapon enema.

If a character has reached 0 hit points and died, all is not truly lost. Although the use of necromancy is frowned upon in many societies, it is still a valid method for bringing a fallen partner back from the dead.
