The carrion crawler has to be one of my all-time favorite monsters. What’s not to love about a giant, armor-plated maggot that paralyzes everyone? That said, I’m not as big a fan of the 5th edition incarnation of this classic monster. I prefer older versions of the monster that had eight attacks with paralyzing tentacles … More Monsterous Monday: The Carrion Crawler – Not Just For Caves Anymore!
I knew it was going to be tough to do a post a day this month, since I’m packing up an entire house and moving it to another state.

I think fighting occultist … More #OnePostADayTheMonthAfterMay Day 16 – Man I’d Love To Play Some Savage Worlds
This is the first in a series of weekly (bi-weekly?) posts about monsters, where I expand upon their ecology or talk about an alternate way of using/thinking about a particular monster. The idea is sort of inspired by my love for the old “Ecology of…” articles from Dragon Magazine. I’ve got notes and ideas for … More #OnePostADayTheMonthAfterMay Day 15 – Monstrous Monday: Goblins
