Just in time for Halloween, I give you – the Pie Tyrant! My second to last entry for this project, the Pie Tyrant turns the silly meter up pretty high – but hopefully DMs who wish to give their players a little festive surprise this month will enjoy it! Considering themselves members of the upper […]
Well well! Last weekend I held a Halloween party, so I have quite a few days to make up for don’t I? Considering the pages of my previous entries, I hope this multi-page writeup of an extreme high level threat is good enough! One of my favorite parts for this month: an entire city of […]
Woof, I stayed up way too late making this one! I hope anyone who comes here enjoys it – as a special request from a friend, I wanted to do it up right. So here goes – the DIY Tyrant, a Cacodemonic Carpenter* for all of your “table saw TPK” needs! Kill your party in […]
It’s that time again – making up for lost time that is! I hope this list of beholder-related plot hooks for every tier of play makes up for a few days of silence. The end of October is getting real busy, but I’m resolved to follow through, if not always on time! (Four tiers counts […]
It’s time for another weekend catch-up! Here are a series of items that beholders may fashion and use for themselves.

A plot hook for a strange town beset by an even stranger…Beholder Playwright?! Use these ideas to both toy with your players, make truly painful puns, and give them the closest thing to the satisfaction of slaying a terrible DM!
Out of all of my work so far, this is the one I most wish I had some good art for. Cower and run in fear, mere mortals! For this cave had much more than kobolds in it, yes yes! Not that kobolds are a weak race by any stretch, merely misunderstood, our strengths lie […]
The template’s still a bit of a mess (not nearly as elegant as I’d hoped – mixing versatile mechanics with simple ones is so tricky!) But this shadowy surprise ought to make your players’ blood run cold! The Shadow Trap Beholder is a way to introduce a true beholder’s worth of terror at much lower […]
Getting tired of all those massive beholder-ish stat blocks? How about something fairly simple to run, yet devastating? Well here’s a literal engine of destruction for you Disintegrate lovers, courtesy of the least morally-minded Cannith artificers you’ve ever seen: the Iron Eye.
It’s been a long and busy weekend – now time to catch up! Here’s a new 5e take on a blast from 3e’s past, the Order of the Topaz (including new feat and magic item), and a caustic creation right out of my own decaying brains, the Slime Tyrant!
