Archive of Magic Items Update

Hello Everyone!

The Archive of Magic Items is nearly finished, thanks to the help of our wonderful Kickstarter supporters. The Archive contains over 400 new magic items for D&D 5e, including new types of weapons and magical materials.

I’ve been providing updates through Kickstarter, but I realized its been awhile since I posted anything here. I want to share with you some of the wonderful art that we’re putting in the book. Enjoy!


If you are interested in pre-ordering a copy of the book, send me an email at PirateGonzalezGames@gmail.com and I can add you to the pre-order list.


The Archive of Magic Items should be released by the end of Q1 2019.

Thanks,
Tim

Subnautica for D&D 5e

I recently finished Subnautica, an open world survival game on a water planet. Instead of foraging on land for food and hopping into caves, you catch fish and delve further into the dark depths of the sea.

The game was a ton of fun, and there were a lot of interesting aquatic creatures that you could encounter. Not all of them were friendly, so I decided to stat up all of the aggressive fauna in the game!

I hope you enjoy these aquatic creatures! If you’re planning an underwater game, consider throwing these into the tank.

Happy New Years!

Destiny 2: Taken

The last entry for the Destiny 2 D&D 5e conversion is here! The forces of the Darkness, the Taken are here!

The Taken are the largest faction, but that’s because they’re made up of creatures from the other Destiny factions. Some of the creatures are basically the same, but others have new abilities.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this conversion!

Dinosaurs for D&D 5e

Happy Holidays!

I’ve just released 8 new dinosaurs for your 5th edition D&D game. Between all of the monster books that Wizards of the Coast has put out, they’ve covered most of the standard dinosaurs. I put together stat blocks for 8 additional ones for some added variety.

Check out the dinosaurs below! I’ve also posted it to the DMs Guild for free if you’d like it added to your online library!

This was fun to create, and it’s a great way to look at how groups of monsters/creatures are designed.

For example, previous editions of D&D applied damage and spell resistances to fey unless the attack was from a cold iron weapon. In my opinion, damage resistances tend to slow down play, and unless part of a particularly powerful or iconic fey creature, isn’t actually necessary. Plus, if you were to be playing in a Fey heavy game, every adventurer would strive to have a cold iron or magical weapon, eventually rendering the resistances useless. In my opinion, it’s better to have this resistance show up less frequently than having literally every fey with a damage resistance. If it doesn’t mesh with your version of Fey creatures, it’s very easy to just tack it onto a creature.

Most Fey also tend have high Dexterity and Charisma attributes, amplifying their nimble and tricky reputation. Armor is rare, and there is a lot of innate casting.

Finally, there’s a common theme among fey creatures of “attractive woman lures men to their death.” I tried to avoid specifying in the book whether a creature was specifically masculine or feminine. Dryads are typically portrayed as feminine, but I had a really great game once featuring a male dryad that looked like Fabio. Most of the art in the book still features feminine fey in these roles, but I tried to avoid that in the written descriptions.

I hope you enjoy the book! Next up will be a Construct Compendium!
