Play Report: Temple of K’thu’uk

I don’t know why I keep forgetting how dangerous D&D Fifth Edition can be to level 1 characters. Last night I ran a small one-off adventure based on the Temple of K’thu’uk from Robin V. Stacey (of Microlite20 fame). You can find my conversion notes, including a new 5e monster, at the end of the […]

Some of those have enough substitutes you can reskin (lycanthropes and generic undead), while “lich” can be applied […]
