RPG Corner, Homebrew – D&D 5e: The Underdark

RPG Corner

I’ve made a few creatures to be used in the Under Dark for South Reaches. These are creatures that I created for The Fractured Mountains originally. The ones here are the Ankyloslime and the Strange Salamander. These have not been playtested so the listed CR may be incorrect. The links lead to their D&D Beyond page. Continue reading

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

RPG Corner, Homebrew – FFG Star Wars: Vorse Wolves

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

I made up a species of wolf for a Darkside FFG Star Wars campaign that became a one-shot. The basic premise is following a Sith Lord and his Apprentice around. This is in the Old Republic era somewhere non-specific in the storyline while the Rule of Two is in practice.

As far as I know, this planet was referenced in the Force and Destiny beginner’s game only so there are no creatures from there with stats. Likewise, the Wookieepedia page didn’t list any creatures native to the planet. To that end, here are my Vorse Wolves. Continue reading

RPG Corner, Homebrew – D&D 5e: Face-Mask

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

I created a creature based off of a creature in the series Pathfinder by Orson Scott Card called a facemask. Here is a link to the Wikipedia page for the book series: link. I also released the Face-Mask as a homebrew creature on DnD Beyond, the creature’s name in at the start of the stat block is a link.

Face-Masks look and feel like a mass of wet, rotting refuse, but do not be fooled! If they touch a creature they turn that creature into either a living zombie or a freak of nature. Continue reading

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

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

Quarterlings (aka Half-Dwarves) are a race that was created by my friend Michael for a D&D game that is going up on my YouTube channel Sword or Sorcery. He created this race in case someone wanted to play the race he and his mother created for a world they are working on together. With his permission I present you with the Quarterling stat block.
