Deep Magic: Dimensional Warping

In 1884, Edwin Abbott wrote a novella called Flatland, and a hundred years later, I read it with delight. The novella’s characters are squares and triangles, sliding around a two-dimensional world called Flatland. The Flatlanders have no concept of “up” or “down,” and the existence of a third-dimension is left to philosophers and clerics. That is, until one day when a sphere pulls a square out of Flatland and into Spaceland. From his new...

Midgard Preview: Skincrawler Dragon

Art by Ted Reed Millions of shadow spiders crawl under this dragon’s translucent scales, pigmenting its pale gray flesh like shifting black sand snaking across its wasted frame. The dragon’s diaphanous wings sweep back from its shoulders to its withered forked tail. Its lips, permanently withdrawn from its toothy maw, snarl with menace, and a palpable hunger emanates from the bony-faced creature’s deep-set spider eyes. Skincrawler CR 11 XP...

Monday Monster: Necrotic Tick

“What should have been a bustling mining village stood abandoned in the early morning mist. A cabin door flapped open and shut, and we stepped cautiously inside, our weapons drawn. A noise drew my eyes upward, but it was too late. Four gold rushers had wedged themselves in the rafters, and dropped upon us.

How to Run a Horror Adventure

Ready to host a horror night? Well, invite your friends over, pop in your scariest DVD, turn off the sound, turn on all of the lights, put the baseball game on the radio, and prepare to… thoroughly underwhelm them. Without the proper mood, this tragic fate can befall your horror adventure too.
