Star Spawn Template There exist horrors in the universe incomprehensible to man. Sometimes these abominations manifest themselves within other living creatures, warping them into monsters more deadly than their ordinary selves. Creatures of this order are known as star spawn,identifiable only bythe bizarre traits that they possess. It is not uncommon for two statistically identical […]

Meta Thursday (Macabre Manses): Fleshdoll PCs

Crafted from the flesh, blood, and bone of dead corpses, fleshdolls are miniature 1-ft. tall puppets that are animated by unwilling spirits bound with evil necromancy. Products of the fleshdoll stage, the associated curse has a myriad of effects, but none are more noticeable than this unnatural transference into one of these gruesome miniatures. Stitched […]

Many fantasy roleplaying games are rife with ways to recover after battle; clerics, paladins, monks, and many other classes (and in some cases, player races) are able to heal themselves and others. When we’re playing Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 or Pathfinder, this is often an essential element; they are resource-driven games, built around the concept […]

Today’s article is a little different, mostly because we’re starting off with a (slightly conceited) story about an elf in a cyberpunk game I played: Eladriel.

Gunslinger Archetype – Legionnaire


Legionnaire (Archetype) While most gunslingers—especially those that use two handed weapons—eschew melee combat, legionnaires revel in it.
