Have you ever heard that you are never more than three feet from a spider? If that makes you uncomfortable, don’t worry, it’s only MOSTLY true.
Of all the monsters we’ve dealt with, none is more deadly serious than the flumph. And no, this has nothing to do with the date.
Winter has come. It has finally come to the Windy City just as it finally came to Westeros. Fortunately, we haven’t had dire wolves in Chicago in 10,000.
Managrimm asks: Why doesn’t a monster’s speed factor into it’s CR? The aggressive trait raises your offensive CR. It seems like ranged attackers with a speed of 60’ are more dangerous than ones with a speed of 15’.
Every adventure begins with rats. Swarms of rats, giant rats, and dire rats. But this is the story about how a real life variety of rats got misnamed. Because of British history.
What’s the secret history of the otyugh in D&D? There isn’t one. So we had to fill this episode with a lot of s$&%. Literally.
It can be hard to figure out how some weird monsters got into D&D in the first place. For example, who would guess that the bulette is only in D&D because of an economic collapse in 1873?
Sometimes the weird is bonkers. And sometimes it’s just incongruous. Like the backwards-handed cat demons of Dungeons & Dragons.
