Ragmen - Generic Monsters for Any setting

I've been wanting to make these guys for awhile, now I am and I am gleefully waiting to sic these little guys on my daughter and her friends!



“Never forget; never deny the existence of the ragmen. Born of fear and madness they groan and crawl. Born of madness they wrap and entwine. Born of magus folly the ragmen come, the ragmen come.”

Hit Dice: 2+2
Armor Class: 7 [12]
Attacks: Slam [1d4]
Saving Throw: 17
Move: 6 [30’]
Special: Smother, Gestalt
Challenge Level/XP: 4/120

Ragmen are a form of golem created originally by a very mad and very poor magic-user. They have since become the cheap and easily replaceable minions of many eager chaotic magic-users in the world.  Ragmen appear to be sets of clothing, either hung or laying in piles when inactive. When active they appear as clothing being filed by nothing at all.  Being made of clothe, however, means that Ragmen are easily dispatched by fire (3x fire damage than on a normal target). Unfortunately Ragmen are rather resistant to blades and blunted weapons receiving an extra –[+] 2 to AC[AAC] when attacked with such a weapon.

Gestalt – Ragmen who are cut to pieces have a 75% chance of there component pieces acting of their own free will (all stats remain the same save HD which is reduced to 1/2d6).

Smother - The Ragman will attempt to attach to and complete cover the target. After four turns of being complete covered the target faints due to a lack of oxygen. While covering the target the Ragman can do nothing else. Targets can make a saving throw (-4 modifier) every turn up to the fourth round to attempt to remove the Ragman. If aided by a companion the modifier is negated.

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.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
