Illumians in D&D 3.5, due to their Power Siglis and Illumian Words racial abilities, tended towards being very versatile … Continue reading Conversion: Illumian – Species Descriptor (D&D 3.5) [Cypher System]

Unarmed Combat and Magical Weapons [D&D 5E]

I am very fond of monks, druids, and other characters that rely on natural weapons and fighting unarmed. In fact I have something of a preference for such characters.
