Curses, Conditions, Corruption and Relics pt2

Very happy with new batch here for various ages of horrors that ruled world in the monster kingdom age. Next will do non human stuff, reptilians, arachnids, amphibians and more...

Ran Roadwar2000 and Babylon today will blog soon. Assembling soldiers, building roads. Teaching and making art again. About to be kicked off health benefit for working so i hope my fitness lasts a while. Must stock up on meds and get dentistry all done quick. Being too healthy and working isnt so bad an outcome.

Have some stuff i did for con games which i will use again here and I'm liking idea of core character choices stuff done with cards. Skills, Spells, class, Alignment all on cards. Worked very well in my con games. Have considered a character zine for dnd with various data on whole spreads for higher levels.

Mid and high level encounter tables. I'm getting away with numbers and boss monsters as elites but will need some more soon.

These types could be mashed up with other types to make necromantic elder cultists or elder chaos warband.

Elder Magic Relics
Elder gods dwelled since primordial times. At times their power is released occasionally enslaving the world and benefiting many non human servitor species. They have many names but they themselves have tru names we cannot comprehend. Many ruled through cults in the dawn time, during the elder age and the monster empire.
