4/5 – Starter Set (D&D5 – Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition)

Je me souviens encore de ma première boîte de D&D. Elle était rouge, et elle contenait tout ce qui était nécessaire pour se créer un personnage et le mener jusqu’au niveau 3. Dans la boîte, on trouvait même un scénario un peu bac à sable qui permettait d’explorer une vallée creusée de toutes parts par des cavernes abritant autant de clans de monstres qu’il fallait expédier ad patres pour sécuriser la région…

Monstrueusement Mignons (Générique : Médiéval-Fantastique)

Monstrueusement Mignons est un bestiaire et une aide de jeu, qui propose d’amener les versions juvéniles de monstres habituellement rencontrés dans des univers de fantasy classiques comme Dungeons & Dragons, et, en l’occurrence, Héros & Dragons ainsi que Chroniques Oubliées Fantasy. Les versions originales (Baby Bestiary 1 & 2) se veulent être une aide de jeu générique, dénuée d’éléments techniques. La version française, pour sa part, compile les deux ouvrages originaux et ajoute les règles de dressage, d’ordres et les caractéristiques des versions juvéniles de ces monstres pour les les jeux H&D, COF et COF-Mini.

Black Ichor of the Iron Obelisk

The Iron Obelisk weeps in near silence – the pools of ichor growing around it, fed by its melancholy nature. The ichors seep down and flow where underground waters should, tainting the darkness with the ennui and melancholy of the pillar of iron. Slow grinding noises are heard nearby, as if the world is changing itself – pulling away as far is it can from the source of this ichor. The wound where the Iron Obelisk sits has grown forming a cave nearly 200 feet across where the world tries to isolate the rusted spike within it.

Black Ichor of the Iron ObeliskBlack Ichor of the Iron Obelisk

The Iron Obelisk has many powerful uses. Flakes of rust taken from the area around it and ground to dust make sleep spells incredibly more potent, whereas rust taken from the Obelisk itself can be used to counter most forms of mind control and charms. Bits of iron taken along with this rust can be worked into somber weapons and armour that spread their melancholic nature to their bearers, but also to their foes.

But those who touch the iron obelisk itself or the black ichor are cursed with the yearning sadness of the device. They will seek out places underground where the ichor can be found, and while the ichor does nothing to sate or alleviate the sadness, it calls to the cursed and bathing in it will indeed remove any other curses or diseases the target is afflicted with.

In fact, when adventuring underground, those cursed by the obelisk or the ichor will often find themselves in proximity with the ichor – even if it shouldn’t be there. There is a 25% chance that any adventure leading them underground will lead them to the black ichor in some way. It will replace water in dungeons and adventures, and will seem ominously ever-present until the curse is broken.

Plane Shift : Dominaria (D&D5 – Dungeons and Dragons Fifth Edition)

La série des Plane Shift est destinée à apporter des références techniques pour adapter les univers du jeu de cartes Magic : The Gathering à la cinquième édition de Dungeons & Dragons. Ils sont à chaque fois à mettre en rapport avec ces collections de cartes ainsi que l’artbook correspondant. Sixième supplément de cette série, Plane Shift : Dominaria est un complément à l’ouvrage The Art of Magic : The Gathering – Dominaria. Il revient sur l’univers iconique de Magic en se concentrant sur le continent d’Aerona, laissant à dessein les région d’Urborg, Shiv et Yavimaya de côté. Bien que Dominaria soit l’un des univers les plus développés de Magic, ce supplément est plus compact que les précédents opus (vingt-quatre pages au lieu d’une quarantaine). Ces fichiers ont été mis à disposition gratuitement sur le site de l’éditeur. Bien que développés et publiés par Wizards of the Coast,  ces ouvrages n’ont pas donné lieu aux playtests habituels de la gamme D&D5. Le matériel qu’ils proposent n’est donc pas compatible avec les événements organisés D&D.

Crypts of the Immortal Fortress

Beneath the Immortal Fortress are a number of small dungeons, tombs, crypts, and oubliettes. As the fortress itself is still inhabited and the residents know better than to explore these lower areas, they remain generally unmolested, with the entrances of the more dangerous areas under guard in case anything should creep out.

Crypts of the Immortal FortressCrypts of the Immortal Fortress

These particular crypts were considered inconsequential until a planes-hopping sage showed up with a map indicating something important within – so if you can get into the fortress, getting to the crypts themselves shouldn’t be too hard of a task.

Behind the scenes, this is actually a redraw of a small crossword puzzle posted during the Alternate Reality Game that was played online leading up to the Stream of Eyes event where they announced the upcoming release of the two 5e Waterdeep books this autumn.

Four Against Darkness – Temple of the Jade Gorgon

On Wednesday, I decided to give myself the “day off” to just play games and ignore any work or chores or whatever. Ordered out for food, and pulled out “Four Against Darkness” for the first time.

It is a solo dungeon-delving game and this was my first run through it. The book says your first run should take about an hour, with later games taking about 45 minutes, but I found my game took about 150 minutes to play through – with lots of flipping through the book. But it will definitely get quicker now that I know most of the systems in play.

Temple of the Jade GorgonTemple of the Jade Gorgon

I’ll be honest, this first delve felt a little too easy. Maybe I was just really lucky, so we’ll have to try a second game to be sure. But part of the problem I foresee is that as characters gain levels, the dungeons (at least in the first book) don’t – so once you’ve survived a few dungeons, you should be hell on wheels.

But I’ve got a lot of adventure modules to try out also. I’ll take the base game for another spin or two, then move on to the modules.

Highlight of this session was the Jade Gorgon. At the beginning of the encounter she turned everyone in the party to stone except the cleric. Which was good, as the cleric has the Blessing spell which reverses petrification… So I guess just one different roll would have massively changed the whole climax of the adventure.

The Savage Caves

The ruins of Saurguard Haunt are but burned stones and bits of rain-cleaned charcoal. But it is a harder task to burn down the small dungeon that sat beneath it.

The Savage CavesThe Savage Caves

Used as a traditional dungeon to hold prisoners under Saurguard – the dungeon was being expanded to include a temple to the proscribed lords of damnation when construction breached into a a cave slightly beneath the level of the temple and proceeded down through the limestone to the hillside beneath the Haunt.

Of course, you can’t just leave places like this open and unguarded and not expect foul things to move in… The lower entrance to the savage caves has been claimed by giant spiders who have killed off the entire bat population that once lived here, and who knows what foulness has taken over the ancient dungeons?

Lockhart’s Delve

Once the basement of a small fortified temple, Lockhart’s Delve has been home to a variety of creatures and groups since the destruction of the temple proper. Some maps of the old temple of the moon god show two entrances into the lower levels – one into the basements and another into the connected crypts. But some fifty years ago the crypt entrance was completely filled with stone and earth under the orders of Short Terog, an ogre adventurer who made this her home for a time.

Lockhart's DelveLockhart’s Delve

Most recently, the Blackguard Lockhart has used the structure as barracks while assembling their forces to cross the dark barrens and assault Oceansong Harbor. Since the fall and subsequent recapture of Oceansong Harbor, the dungeons have seen little use except by the shadows of the kobolds who came here looking for their clanmates.

The blame for this dungeon falls squarely on the shoulders of Evey Lockhart. Four years ago she challenged a few of us over on Google+ to try doing our art in a medium we normally didn’t use. As I was poor at the time, instead of buying other art supplies, I tried drawing a dungeon map using software instead of my usual penwork.

I hated it.

But finally, four years later, I’ve gone back and redrawn the original design in my current style.

Release the Kraken on the Ruins under Axehead Mound

Release-The-Kraken

It is the end of the month and time to head back into the older maps and dig up a few to re-release under the free commercial license, all thanks to the awesome patrons who support my cartographic wanderings via Patreon. Today we are bringing back “the Ruins under Axehead Mound” from four years ago. The versions below have been upgraded to 1200 dpi and an optional grid has been added.

The Ruins under Axehead Mound (with grid)The Ruins under Axehead Mound (with grid)

My default assumption for old school dungeons is that you’ve come across the ruins of something huge and underground – something like the ruined cities of the Elderlings buried in the swamps in the Rain Wilds stories by Robin Hobb. It’s the basis I use for all my “random dungeon” rolling.

Here is a small dungeon level set up exactly along those premises – the ruins under Axehead Mound have two entrances – one a collapsed wall section that leads into a chamber, the other a pair of ruin-cluttered stairs that lead into the ruins from a ruined above-ground building.

This map was originally drawn almost exactly four years ago in a single draft using Sakura Microns (a 03 for the walls, and a 01 for the hatching).

Release the Kraken on the Sunken Maw

Release-The-Kraken

It is the end of the month and time to head back into the older maps and dig up a few to re-release under the free commercial license, all thanks to the awesome patrons who support my cartographic wanderings via Patreon. Here we are bringing back “The Sunken Maw” – a vertically-challenging dungeon drawn back in 2014. The versions below have been upgraded to 1200 dpi and an optional grid has been added.

The Sunken Maw (with grid)The Sunken Maw (with grid)

Far too many of my dungeons are easy to access. So why have they lain unplundered all these ages? The Sunken Maw is a bit trickier to get into than most. A nearly straight vertical drop leads to underground stone construction just above the water table. Rope and climbing gear will be the order of the day for lower-level groups, whereas the entry will be a lot easier (and thus less frightening) to those who come equipped with the magic of levitation or means of flight.

To complicate the matter, of course, we have nearby ruins which may contain untold horrors (who may be waiting when you come up from the maw) and a harpy nest has been established just inside the entrance of the maw, with a narrow path along the edge of the maw to allow pedestrian access to the stinking nest of foul birds.

The Sunken Maw (no grid)The Sunken Maw (no grid)

But it’s the structures below that will of course draw the attention of adventurers in the first place. Originally built by elven sorcerers with imprisoned demons to transport them up and down the maw itself, the structure’s name has been lost to the ages, but it still contains eldritch magics that were once common to the Kale empire thousands of years ago.
