I don’t know why, but the notion of using parts of magical creatures to supplement your magical effects has always appealed to me immensely. (As an aside: Playground Adventures’ Creatures Components Vol. I is THE resource for that sort of thing…) Each muck yields 3 doses, plus one dose per size category above Small. Heal or Survival may be used as a substitute for […]

Time is erratic, and entryways and exits are ephemeral. Whether you visit UnLunDun or one of the aforementioned places – they all potentially fit […]
