Conversion: Illumian – Species Descriptor (D&D 3.5) [Cypher System]

My first TTRPG character was a Illumian Dread Necromancer/Warlock in a homebrew D&D 3.5 setting. Due to this, and despite having not played one since, the Illumian race still has a special place in my heart. 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]

Is it Smaller On The Inside? Bag of Holding, Minor [Pathfinder 1E]

So... a player in my current Pathfinder 1E game made an observation that made me scratch my head a bit. He came to the conclusion that the item Minor Bag of Holding is “smaller on the inside”.  To be honest I had never paid this item, originally printed in Pathfinder Chronicles: Classic Treasures Revisited, any … Continue reading Is it Smaller On The Inside?

Be Careful Who You Stalk In The Night [Fiction]

“What in the name of all the dark gods are you?” growls out a man dressed in bandit black as he struggles against the weight of a dark skinned, intermittently translucent, young man kneeling on his back.

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

The Watcher and The Witness [Fiction]

“Hi.” That was the first thing he said to me as I approached. A single word, small, and simple. The ring of standing stones, in their bed of flowing grass, that surrounded me were old familiar friends. The silver flame at their heart, was a solemn reminder. An eternal place holder in my memory, for … Continue reading The Watcher and The Witness [Fiction]
