The gods of Nevre: The Warrior – After

Kemp stood on a battlefield covered with the blood of humans and skravyn. This war would later be known as the first skravyn-human war. The Warrior planned to stand on the side of the humans, being one himself, until he heard the human king order the army to kill the women and children.

“They are not people. They are animals. Slaughter them like animals!”

A righteous fury burned brightly in Kemp at that statement. He had never felt such fury before. In his rage he acted for The Vengeance. He walked calmly up to the king. Nobody stopped him. Maybe they recognized him, maybe they saw the great anger on his face. He wasn’t sure, but Kemp always remembered the look of the young prince’s face as he killed his father in front of him.

Terra Incognita – Chapter 9

Terra IncognitaHelena was about to throw fire again when Orby made her slow down. Wait. Focus your energy through me. Don’t quick cast if you can avoid it. Slow your breathing. Speak the word fire in draconic. Use that to focus.

RPG Corner, Homebrew: D&D 5e – Teblats

[RPG Corner is a monthly post where I talk about something related to Role-Playing Games.]

Teblats appear in a part of Rebuilding Brangmar, and they will probably show up again.

Teblats can take the form of any tiny creature. The creature itself isn’t the teblat, instead the teblat is a parasite that gives the animal protection but also causes the animal to be more aggressive and appear to have a blue aura. This aura grows stronger when they have more temporary hit points and is very dim when they have none.

Sentient creatures cannot be affected by a teblat infestation. Continue reading
