Sometimes, creatures haunt a location, develop quirks, or are unique to their species. These creatures are one-of-a-kind and have unique attributes to reflect that.
For mine specifically, Boaun and Oolalyle, you can see them below. For all 10, check out the Reddit post! Continue reading “Steal [Our] Idea: Famous Monsters and Local Legends (The Gollicking)”
Six of us in The Gollicking posed a friendly challenge: we all choose a single item from the WTF Is My Ridiculous Magical Item Generator we split into three teams and all built a five room dungeon out of it. All three of our dungeons were themed around this item: POWERFUL GOBLIN SKULL THAT STEALS COINS WHENEVER YOU REPEAT SOMETHING SOMEONE RECENTLY SAID.
You can get all three dungeons from the Reddit post linked above. /u/PaganUnicorn and I [/u/RexiconJesse] teamed up to build a glorious 5 room dungeon about ticks and greed called The Temple of Dosh-Grub.
The text only version follows below.
Enjoy! And don’t get greedy! Continue reading “Steal [Our] Idea: The Temple of Dosh-Grub – a five room dungeon with unique treasure”

Deity – Bhaal, God of Murder (NE, Death)
Cult Name – Bhaal’s Gentry
Symbol – A skull with the hilt of a dagger below its mouth and the tip piercing the top of the skull
Any drunken halfwit with a blade can murder an unsuspecting person. There’s no sport, no challenge, no mystery, no tension. Bhaal rejoices in the delicious lead up to murder almost as much as the act itself. While Bhaal takes notice of all murders, he does not offer favor to any normal murderer.
Those who wish to become something more than a servant of Bhaal must walk a different, far more dangerous path.

You may find yourself purposefully wanting to keep that information away from the other players, even if those players are proficient at separating player and character knowledge.
