Brilliant Botanics #2: The Bane Rose

The deadly Bane Rose, a pre-generated magic plant for Dice & Glory. It adds a different type of monstrous danger to a campaign. This large rose-like bush is envenomed with a nasty magic toxin but produces a beautiful red-orange and gold rose. The plant also shelters swarms of scorpions, spiders, and vipers that protect it. The plant itself may not be that physically formidable but it has its tricks. Its venom, magic, and dangerous swarms combine to make it a deadly challenge. Likewise, its magical properties may intrigue the adventurous mage.

Brilliant Botanics can be used at the discretion of Game-Masters to add variety to their game worlds easily and quickly. This “rosebush” is fleshed out enough for GM’s to drop it into game-sessions with little prep-work beyond reading the document. Finally, the Bane Rose and its fruit are a great addition to any GM’s bag of tricks & treasure. Well, a treasure for those with an alchemical edge and a desire for spell components.

Bizarre Beasties #13 – The Boar-Wolf

The Boar-Wolf, a nasty wolf and wild boar conglomeration. A new pregenerated monster for Dice & Glory that has a wicked surprise on occasion. Especially a challenge when confronted as war-beasts these large beasts rip, gore, and trample all foes!

I’ve been experimenting with mixing various mundane animals together and adding some strange abilities. I did find an identical creature already created for a crappy television special decades ago. I had already had this as a concept so, I let that influence me a little. Though the creature is a simple brute with a few surprises should the GM see fit to make use of those.

Bizarre Beasties #12 – Ullarhg

The Ullarhg are a fierce herd beast that tramples enemies with their hooves. As well as goring them with their tusks and horns, and resist attack with their spikes and thick hides. A new pregenerated monster for Dice & Glory that will add some danger and awe to any GM’s campaign. These tough and monstrously strong brutes are a challenge to any adventurer.

These appear as terrifying bull-boar-rhino hybrids. They are ponderous in weight and large in size. Ullarhg use their boar-like tusks, bovine horns, and rhino-nose-horns to great effect in battle. Their thick rhino-like hide and spikes grant them protection from most weapon-strikes.

Bizarre Beasties #11 – The Wolf-Bat

The Wolf-Bat, a fiendish beast resulting from the combination of a bat and a wolf. A new pregenerated monster for Dice & Glory that will definitely add a nasty surprise to any GM’s campaign. These murderous winged monsters are fresh from Hades.

I wondered what this combination would present then I added the fiendish template. I found the trademark of a similar image after. They appear as shaggy, black wolves with a greasy coat and the wings of bats on two legs instead of four. They fear the light and have a horrendously vicious bite. In addition, they are also pure chaotic evil.

Wondrous Objects #6 – The Wondrous Armory

Here’s another fantastic item to drop into any Dice & Glory campaign. However, it is not strictly speaking an object. Instead it’s a clever use of a combination of spells, a locale, and some mundane but high quality weapons. It has the potential to pull double-duty as a hidden stash and an enemy’s clever gimmick.

A sudden need to flex the magic system inspired it. There are endless variations depending only on character resources and their scope of spell knowledge.

Wondrous Objects are pregenerated fantastic items, mostly magical, for Dice & Glory. At the discretion of the GM wondrous objects can add a reward or additional threat to their game world easily and quickly. Also as pregenerated items Game Masters can drop them into a game session with little prep-work beyond reading the PDF.

Bizarre Beasties #10 – The Crow Sloth

The Crow Sloth, a pregenerated monster for Dice & Glory that can add a little surprise to any GM’s campaign. These creatures are massive brutes that will attack and kill any targets smaller than themselves. They leave the corpses of their victims to “ripen” for a few days before returning and devouring the corpse.

Inspired by the classic Owl Bear. However, combining instead the best abilities of a Crow/Raven with those of the Giant Ground Sloth (Megatherium). They are a giant brute type creature that will fight to the death and highly aggressive.
