Racial Variant: Baaz Draconian

This months Dragon magazine from WotC say the return of Krynn’s draconians, portrayed for D&D 4e through the use of racial variants for the Dragonborn race. Presented in the article were the Bozak (magic using) and Kapak (stealthy, acidic) draconians. Other the next few days, it’s my intention to write up the missing racial types. …

Creatures of the Mos Shuuta Valley

Bantha This highly adaptable species is one of the most commonly found herd creatures, living wild on many worlds, and domesticated for agricultural and pastoral use on many of the major inhabited worlds. Bantha have the ability to survive in harsh, unforgiving environments  they live on minuscule amounts of food and water given their size, and they naturally store the …

A Who’s Who of Mos Shuuta

Ardun Du’gren – Dim-U Preacher It’s easy to ignore the wld arm waving gesticulations, and almost incomprehensible shouting of Ardun, a human follower of the Dim-U faith. These fanatics believe in the sanctity of the bantha, and worship a mother goddess creature, the mighty bantha, the horned one. By day, Ardun wanders the Mos Shuuta …

The Wider Mos Shuuta Area

The lands around the Mos Shuuta mesa may, at first glance, just look like the rest of Tatooine… arid, featureless desert, but like the rest of the planet, looks can be very deceiving. The Mos Shuuta mesa is a rocky outcropping, roughly 500m by 1000 metres in size, in a roughly kidney shaped formation, formed …

More Mos Shuuta Locations

I really enjoyed writing the earlier extra locations for Mos Shuuta, and I knew there was more I could do with the mesa… Surveillance Bunker Beyond a vague customs presence, and the imperial appointed spaceport overseer, Brynn, the Empire has very little influence in Mos Shuuta, leaving it to Teemo and his Gammorrean guards to maintain piece. …

A Brief Look at Pathfinder Minis

Last week saw the release of the 5th set of Pathfinder pre-painted minis, made by WizKids (of mageknight and heroclix fame), and sold by Paizo. I’m lucky to have been able to amass a fairly large collection of minis over the last 4 years or so, hunting down rare mini’s and importing some from america. …

Revisiting Zanzer Tems Dungeon

ZTA3Board

Back near the start of October 2012, I posted on DailyEncounter that I was starting to rebuild Zanzer Tems dungeon from the Basic D&D starter set. I had an initial burst of activity on the project, doing 4 or 5 casts of each mould I own for about a week. And then I dropped my tub of …

Rethinking My Monster Maths

I mostly play D&D 4e in the heroic tier, the character feel like they have just enough powers by level 6 to be suitably iconic heroes to the general population, and fights don’t drag on for hours and hours and hours. But still, over 4e’s lifespan, I’ve found myself wanting to make monsters more of …
