Quick Note - Another Card Test and a New Monster for S&W

With the print version of the Swords & Wizardry version of Assault on the Southern Horn underway and the battle map turning out to be awesome and released to the public I turn to my next Assault add-on. Thoughts?

Front
Back

 The Creature Card pack will have around 20 to 25 cards featuring the creatures and a few NPCs from the adventure. The cards feature full stats for each monster as well as a picture. Unlike the previous cards I showed for another project this card shows the hit dice in the blue orb and a recommended HP in the main stat block.

I am hoping to have these up and running before the next MEPAcon and gauge interest to see if a certain Kickstarter to begin soon could use an add-on.

So what does everyone think of the new design for these over the other ones?

The Teind

The Au-Sidhe looked upon Merric with glee as the poor mortal stumbled to a stop mere inches from the light bridge's edge. The tall, lithe High Sidhe extended her hand, her melodious voice ringing in Merric's mind "The price to be paid." Merric shook his head, he could not pay the toll and had hoped to sneak across the bridge. The Sidhe's smile grew as Merric felt the pain rushes through his body.  

Type: Mortal, Fae-Touched
Hit Dice: B (1d6)
Armor Class: 6[14]
Attacks: Shocking Touch(1d6 lightning damage + Paralysis(Save Negates))
Saving Throw: 17
Special: Paralyis, Immune to non-magic weapons, skip step
Move: 12
Alignment: Neutral
Challenge Level/XP: 2/30
Special Abilities
Paralysis - On a successful attack the target must succeed a save or suffer paralysis for 2d6 rounds.
Skip Step - Every five feet the Teind vanishes from the mortal realms for five feet before returning to the mortal realm.
Background
The Teind are mortals who attempted to cross Fae controlled locations (either in the Mortal or Fae realms) without paying whatever toll required of them by the Sidhe. Each Teind appears different from the last, the bodies and minds of the mortal being warped and changed to fit with whatever Fae they owe.

    1. Thanks! I wasn't sure if I went a bit overboard with the art elements.

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.



I.
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!

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
