Grate Tentacles - Generic Creatures for any setting

The following is a generic monster that can fit into nearly any setting and is not specific to Eira. Sorry for the short post today, everyone, busy day ahead and behind me already.

For any who live in PA, I would just like to say I take I-81 to work. That should be explanation enough.


Grate Tentacles

Found in the deepest dungeons of the world are the grate tentacles.  Huge writhing masses of tentacles that shot up from holes in the floor, grates, cracks in the wall, etc when something draws near. It is unknown if each mass of tentacles is a separate beast or if all the tentacles are a part of some ancient, elder thing buried deep within the world.

Grate Tentacles
Hit Dice: 6
Armor Class:  5 [14]
Attacks: 8  (1d4)
Saving Throw: 11
Special: Grapple
Alignment: Neutral

Challenge Level/XP:  4/120

On any attack the grate tentacle has a 30% chance of grappling the target of its attack.

    This is definitely something I'll be using in the future.


  2. Use away. These kind of monsters come from reading far to much Howard before bed. My kids tell me they have the most interesting dreams the next day.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
