It’s the day everyone’s been waiting for – Race Day! I’ve been teasing the dinosaur races ever since my players arrived at Port Nyanzaru. I wanted to save it as one of the last things they did in the city before entering the jungle proper, and I think it was worth the wait.

dms guild reviewGnomes are probably the most overlooked race in Dungeons & Dragons, and no I’m not trying to make a size joke. They’re often portrayed as an in-between combination of the pragmatic, stoic dwarves and free-wheeling halflings. Are they nature-loving hippies or industrious artificers? No one race should boil down to any single profession or trait, but it makes gnomes a bit trickier to pin down, and I don’t see them used very often in adventures.

Enter “Attack on Coppercoil,” which satisfies my gnome curiosity. The titular community, which resides inside a massive hollowed-out tree stump in a forest, is under attack by a sudden raiding party of Duergar who have tunneled up from underneath, and it’s up to the PCs to rescue them.

It’s designed for a party around 3rd level, with adjustments for levels 1-4, and should take about one or two sessions.

After several sessions in Port Nyanzaru, this week provided a bit of a detour. The PCs accepted Rokah’s mission to travel to Fort Beluarian to try and uncover evidence of collusion between the Flaming Fist mercenaries and the pirates of Chult.

Rokah pulled some strings and got them all passage on the Brazen Pegasus for free, able to jump over to the Fort in about half a day. The Fort was open to the public, but the PCs ran into problems almost immediately.

DMs Guild Review – Creature Feature Quarterly Vol. 1

A collection of otherworldly and demonic creatures presented in a black and white zine format.

dms guild reviewCreature Feature Quarterly volume 1” is a compendium of 13 monstrosities (and otherwise) in a black and white zine style. I’m not normally a fan of that style, but the monster artwork is very well done, and the black ink fits the theme of the grotesque monsters.

Out of the 13 monsters, 10 of them are between CR 5-10, making this a solidly Tier 2 compendium. There’s a decent amount of variety to be found, though it relies too much on the hulking brute archetype. Continue reading “DMs Guild Review – Creature Feature Quarterly Vol. 1”

After a lengthy battle with a small horde of zombies in a sacrificial chamber last week, the team gets a much quieter aftermath. Returning to the Temple of Savras results in a sizable monetary award of 20gp each, as well as the opportunity to ask Savras for guidance on several different characters, locations, and objects that our party is searching for.

The Savras ritual takes head priest Zitembe a full 24 hours, however. With evening approaching, our party returned to the Thundering Lizard Inn, where they could properly interview all of the guides.
