The respective foes span a CR from 15 to 20. Each NPC gets a cool b/w-artwork.   All right, the first foe herein would be a former dwarven war-hero – Daegrim Siegebreaker, consumed by […]

  • Villain Codex II: Adversaries for Advanced Heroeshttp://rpk-tramplin.ru The second installment of the Villain Codex-series clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial, 1 page of introduction, 1 page of SRD, leaving us with 15 pages of content, so let’s take a look!   We begin this pdf with Evetta Laxley, a changeling dreamweaver witch, running an inn as a front for her nefarious operations. Solid one. Ferracyr would be a metal elementalist wizard…but he actually is a venerable elf, which is an interesting twist on what you’d expect – and yes, the ancient pioneer has schemes to prolong his life in nasty ways…but may his mind perhaps even warrant it?
