30 Day Challenge - All pouty lips and big eyes

Not really a monster, but back in the days of 3.5 and the Paizo controlled Dragon magazine, a player-character race with an EL +2 was released called the Nymph. I no longer have the magazine thanks to a flood back in 2005, but from what I remember the race was awesome.
The Nymph was described as always female, always beautiful and had a natural spell-like charm ability that could be used I believe once per encounter. This ability is why I loved the race, I played a Nymph Rogue named Dahila Ghul, and in the three games I used that character (before my brother the DM at the time banned the race)I was never hit once!
Anytime I used the ability all attackers had to make a will save, if successful they would leave the nymph alone because of her beauty and sweetness and then go after the closest other enemy.
I played Dahila like a fantasy world Marilynn Monroe, all husky voice and oozing sensuality … really a fun time and now that I think about it I’m surprised girl-gamers didn’t try to hunt down the designer of the nymph as if he were Frankenstein’s monster..

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…

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.
