Monstrous Monday : Dragon Wasps

Dragon Wasps
Large Vermin, Neutral (N), Non-Intelligent, Nest (1d20)

HD 5
AC 14
Atk Sting (1d4 + poison II) Fiery Spittle 2d6
MV 20 (Fly 60)
SV F 10, R 13, W 13
Special Qualities: Immunity Fire
XP 600 (CL 7)
Dragon Wasps are a highly dangerous species of Giant Wasp, in addition to the abilities of normal giant wasps the Dragon Wasp can release a 10' flaming spittle 3 x per day (2d6 damage, Reflex save for half damage). Dragon Wasps are immune to fire, but their nests are not. Their eggs secrete a chemical pheromone that triggers a restraint in the Dragon Wasps which keeps them from accidentally burning up their own nests. Certain native tribes have learned this and coat key structures in their villages with this chemical (it is hard to obtain/produce so only critical dwellings usually have this protection). Dragon Wasps must make a Will Save to overcome the urge to use their flaming spittle when attacking these specially treated native dwellings. Dragon Wasps avoid cold climates and are usually only found in tropical regions.

Oh and these should work nicely for your Mutant Future games too!  : )

8-Ball Augury

Here's a little spell I thought of while working on another project, you can use it for Blood & Treasure or OSR system of your choice.
8-Ball Augury

Level: Cleric 1
Range: Personal
Duration: Instantaneous
Material Component: Incense worth 15 gp
     The 8-Ball Augury is a lesser version of the Augury Spell. Upon casting this spell a d20 is rolled and the below table is consulted. The answer/words will appear within the smoke from the incense.

1. It is certain
2. It is decidedly so
3. Without a doubt
4. Yes – definitely
5. You may rely on it
6. As I see it, yes
7. Most likely
8. Outlook good
9. Yes
10. Signs point to yes
11. Reply hazy, try again
12. Ask again later
13. Better not tell you now
14. Cannot predict now
15. Concentrate and ask again
16. Don't count on it
17. My reply is no
18. My sources say no
19. Outlook not so good
20. Very doubtful

I saw some folks talking about bringing Magic 8-Balls to their games over on the DCC forums and thought this would make for a fun low level spell.  I got the above list off of Wikipedia.

Orden Ogan!

My best bud Tormentor Rocks! He sent me a surprise Christmas package with some great Prog Metal including a band I'd never heard of Orden Ogan.  I found a video for one of their songs, very cool and with a nice Post Apocalyptic vibe to it!

Lego Mania!

 My brother got me some Lego goodies for Christmas.

I know what I'll be putting together later! Woo Hoo!
That led me to doing some poking around on the 'net and I found some upcoming releases for 2013, I came upon a new line called Legends of Chima.

These look straight out of an old issue of Kamandi or from a Thundercats Cartoon!
Needless to say I see some cool potential for this line at the game table, forget 28mm lead minis I'm using Legos!!  Now where did I leave that instruction manual for the old Lego Yellow Castle set that I still have most of the pieces for....

Warlords of the Apocalypse is back on Track!!

I've gotten some really interesting emails in my inbox the past day or so.
To sum it up Warlords of the Apocalypse, that Post Apocalyptic RPG using the Pathfinder rules that was supposed to come out a few years ago but didn't has been picked up by another company for release, and not just any company... Super Genius Games! They put out some great product IMHO so this should be good!
The Field Guide to Doomsday blog goes into more details.
And here I was saying I was going to hang up my Pathfinder GMing hat... LOL
]Oh well never say never.

Monstrous Monday: Hell Hyena

Hell Hyena

Medium Magical Beast, Chaotic (CE), Average Intelligence, Cackle (1d12)
HD 3
AC 15
ATK Bite (1d6)
MV 40
SV F 12, R 11, W 15
XP 200 (CL3)

Special: Resistance to Fire, 10% Magic Resistance, +2 to hit and damage against Lawful creatures.

     It is said that certain particularly vile witchdoctors know a forbidden ritual that can bind the souls of evil men into that of a hyena, the resulting creature is a vicious hyena with the intelligence of man, the wickedness of a demon and the savagery of a hyena. These witchdoctors use these Hell Hyenas to torment and terrorize any who oppose them; however, many a careless and arrogant witchdoctor has found himself winding up on the Hell Hyena's menu. Without their master, to control them, these savage packs often go on wild killing sprees, wiping out entire villages before they are brought down.
With a nod to Edgar Rice Burroughs

Spes Magna Games; Resources for Stars Without Number

I've been following several posts of late over on the Spes Magna Games blog, there are some cool alien beasties and such, but in particular lately there have been several posts about a new campaign in the works dubbed; Tiamat's Throne.  It reminds me just a bit of Dragonstar, and I mean that in a good way.  I'm always wanting to mix and match stuff in my RPG's and being able to add magic, elves and such into my SWN games has definately got me interested.
