The Bestiary: where I take monsters from the manual and explain them my way… (1) In the aftermath of the Sycophants' Plot, the trials (read gruesome torture) showed to the world the existence of the doppelgängers.

VIII- Bestiary: Freshwater Dragon Turtle

The freshwater dragon turtle is a lot smaller than its oceanic cousin. Many of these beasts have found their way in the canals of the City where they seem satisfied to operate as living rafts, transporting both people and merchandises, for a fee. Being as intelligent (int: 10) as their gargantuan relatives, these dragon turtles … Continue reading VIII- Bestiary: Freshwater Dragon Turtle

That's something I came with while reading Jeff Vandermeer's book: What I'm stealing for my setting is only the cruder idea of the Gray Caps of Vandermeer, whom … Continue reading IV- Bestiary: Myconids

III-Bestiary: Cockatrice

Cockatrice fighting Cockatrice insteads of cock. That's not incredibly imaginative perhaps, but I like to sprinkle some little fantasy elements here and there in SiT. Unlike the normal bird, the cockatrice (MM) doesn't attack with their talons but instead have a bite (+ 3 to hit, 1d4 + 1 dmg). Upon a hit, the target … Continue reading III-Bestiary: Cockatrice
