MODULE - The Dark Heart of Roskem, by Critical Kit
This was a fun project. Alongside helping to create several story elements, I got to make some original and fun monsters. The Bog Body, and the Swamp King, created exclusively for this adventure, proved to be scary and memorable foes, well-balanced for the expected party level.
If you're interested, you can purchase the module here. Other modules are currently being worked on and are not currently available.
Bog Body, description plus signature ability
Rotted through. Resembling zombies with dark leathery skin, bog bodies are raised by The Dark Heart from those who have died in the swamp. The bog body is relatively well preserved, covered in moss, mushrooms and slime.
Fog Cloud. As a bonus action, the Bog Body can generate a 30' radius cloud of thick fog that reeks of decay and surrounds the creature for as long as it is animated. The Bog Body can sense living creatures within the fog and any creature within the fog cannot be hidden from it.
SYSTEM AGNOSTIC ACCESSORIES
Designed for Raging Swan Press, it feels great to be designing products that I've used previously, and will again. There's a whole range of similar products, which I'd strongly recommend checking out here. So far my contributions have been to the '20 Things' series, specifically #56 Snow & Ice and #58 Wrecked Ship. Other works are already in progress and due for release soon.
Example entries - these are intended to be minor events -
Without warning, the ground bucks violently as a minor earthquake strikes. Stones are smashed and trees dashed to the ground. Birds take wing and other animals scatter. The shaking lasts only moments, but leaves an unnatural silence in its aftermath.
A field of frozen flowers spreads across the snow, creating a bright spray of colour. The flowers' beauty is fragile, and they shatter if touched. The extreme cold has frozen the flowers to their cores.
This cabin contains medical tools and rotting bandages floating in the knee-high water. A sturdy chair, complete with leather restraints, lies against one wall. A transparent figure dressed in a bloody uniform beckons to the first in a queue of ghostly figures leading through the door. The ghostly surgeon performs gruesome surgeries on each patient—all of whom writhe in pain before obviously expiring.
