Dinosaur Avatars of Ixalan in D&D: Burning Sun’s Avatar

Burning Sun’s Avatar Ixalan release weekend means D&D stats for the last two of Ixalan’s dinosaur avatar creatures, starting with Burning Sun’s Avatar. The base for this creature was, unsurprisingly, the stats of the Tyrannosaurus Rex presented in the Monster Manual. After appropriately increasing them for CR 11, I designed the Tilonalli’s Dying Light ability … Continue reading Dinosaur Avatars of Ixalan in D&D: Burning Sun’s Avatar

Dinosaur Avatars of Ixalan in D&D: Verdant Sun’s Avatar

Verdant Sun’s Avatar For the second of Ixalan’s dinosaur avatars, Verdant Sun’s Avatar, I knew it had to have a lower damage out put than the other three, so to compensate I gave it considerably higher hit points than its counterparts of equal CR. The stats for this one were based on the Brontosaurus presented … Continue reading Dinosaur Avatars of Ixalan in D&D: Verdant Sun’s Avatar

Dinosaur Avatars of Ixalan in D&D: Wakening Sun’s Avatar

Wakening Sun’s Avatar It’s Ixalan prerelease weekend! To celebrate, I’m creating stats for all four of Ixalan’s dinosaur avatars as D&D creatures, which I’m posting on both days of the prerelease weekend, and both days of the release weekend.

The main effect focus for this iteration of Silumgar was making his poisonous breath worked more as a constant aura than … Continue reading Dragonlords of Tarkir in D&D: Silumgar

Cleric Divine Domain – Revelry (Download) Although I’ve been working on the Ravnica Guildmage subclasses for a while, I thought I’d break up that pattern of subclasses with something a little different. I’m a big fan of Theros, and it was the first magic block that I played, so I thought it was about time … Continue reading

Creatures of Commander 2017 in D&D

Commander 2017 was released yesterday, so this week’s post is going to focus on some of the cool new Vampires, Wizards, Cats and Dragons that we’ve seen in the new set. As each of them is a particularly powerful creature, they all have somewhat large statblocks, so I’m posting them as four separate posts: Edgar … Continue reading Creatures of Commander 2017 in D&D

Powers of Dishonored in D&D: Emily Kaldwin

It should come as no surprise to folks that know me personally that my favourite video game series is Dishonored, and since the player characters of that series have access to a number of eldritch powers, I thought they’d be something interesting to translate as spells for D&D.
