I originally posed this idea/question on the subreddit r/dndbehindthescreen, and it incited some spirited conversations. It was a nice mix of agreement and the opposite. Continue reading “Steal My Idea: Sorry Shouldn’t Start a Session”

Fellow Gollicking pal and Reddit user /u/DeathMcGunz edited more “mundane” creature entries for the new type of monster manual. The Gollicking did birds last time, and this time, we did cats! Everything from tabby’s to Cheetahs.
You can see all of the cat posts over on r/dndbehindthescreen. If you want the mechanical/extended versions of the ones I created, here they are:
Flat-faced and fluffy, exotic shorthairs have a unique cuteness that draws admiration, especially from those who love animals. Exotic shorthairs are like a constant charm spell. They manipulate people with their sly voices and patient movements. Their typical modus operandi is to make kids do things they shouldn’t, but they’ve been known to control their “owners”, even those in high ranking positions.
Full: Exotic shorthairs can cast Charm Person as a first level spell at will, attempting to force anyone within 30 ft to notice and adore them. The DC is 10 but is increased by 5 if the affected person is proficient with the handle animal skill. Anyone with an expressed love for cats rolls with disadvantage.
The Gollicking swoops in again! We’re doing an ongoing project where we take mundane animals and give them minor qualities that make them special. Not quite monster manual entries, but something that gives them a fun edge.
While you should check them all out, I specifically wrote the entries for crows, hummingbirds, geese, and seagulls. Editing was done by the poster and awesome user u/DeathMcGunz.

The party crosses a swamp deep in the woods. A collection of two types of carnivores and three types of herbivores drink from the swamp and wander around without fearing or eyeing one another. The creatures can be anything that fit the setting and challenge rating of the players. I’m going to use dinosaurs as my example creatures.
