This Book is the some total of all the homebrew, mechanics, and worldbuilding that went into creating Argonath. It is part setting book, part additional ED&D content, part monster Manual, and part system mechanics. The hope is to give a look into what this game was, and perhaps provide content for others to use.

Before that though, I would like to take a moment to thank several people for all the work that has gone in to this book.

First and foremost my thanks goes to Storymaker, who without which Expand&d would not exist, and this chance to create and explore a space of shared interest and community created around the original work he put in to create the system this book is based on. All content presented here in is a labor of love and appreciation.

I'd also like to thank Doc for creating the Retrofeed Discord server on which the Argonath game is run from. It is an inclusive space where more than this one game goes on and much content has been worked on and produced for ED&D as well as other weight gain and related systems for D&D and beyond.


Another special thanks goes to Mango and Banjo, as the people crazy enough to join me in going through and forging a new Westmarches when Windrest ended, bringing in dozens of players, resulting in over fifty people engaging with the game one way or another during its over ten month running time! This has been a grand work for us all, and every DM poured their heart and soul into this, and everyone in the Retrofeed server will hopefully be better off for the work done.

And lastly, my thanks goes out to the players, you are all as much a part of this game as any DM. Every session I get to give you all a little fun, and every interaction between the wonderful characters created in the town is another reminder of why I put in all this work. The game ending early does not undo how happy I am to have gotten as far as we did.

Keep being Excellent, all of you.

Big Beginnings

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (7)

You stumble forwards through the wasteland, a strong wind carrying dust and the smell of salty air whipping at the cloak clutched tight over your shoulders. The wrecked wooden carts and abandoned equipment of those who didn't make it any farther clutters the broken road all around you. You remember seeing the faces of many broken by the apocalypses who'd simply given up. The message is always the same; Seantala, your world, is dying. Not you though, you're not ready to give up, you will push on. So, with your meager belongings slung over your shoulder, you push over that last hill, seeing finally with your own eyes that the rumors were true.

A great fortress rests in the middle of a grand valley, a piece of land still untouched by the destruction slowly claiming your world, with rising alabaster walls and grand flags of a dozen kingdoms flying over the parapets. It looks like a sea of refugees are camped outside it's walls, all with the same hope you have. The source of that hope can be seen in the middle of the fortress's mighty walls from your elevated view, a grand portal of glowing blue magic. You've been told it leads to another world, free from the destruction that plagues yours. All these people are hoping to find their salvation on the other side of it's shimmering surface.

You walk through the camp, towards the fortress itself, everyone you pass is talking about the same thing. The great powers that have gathered here, the remnants of the land's kingdoms and governments, they're working together now. The portal is their doing, and they're sending an expedition through to establish a settlement in this new world. It turns out they're looking for people for a special vanguard, those brave enough to take on serious risk to life and limb to explore the new world.

When you arrive, the guards tell you the same thing, and ask you the question you've been waiting to hear. Will you step through the portal and leave your dying world behind? Will you risk it all to help establish a new home with your own bare hands? Are you ready to join the expedition and start your new life in Argonath?


Welcome to Argonath, a West Marches style game based off of D&D 5e and the ExpanD&D system that ran for ten months on the Retrofeed Server. Players entered the Shattered Lands, a place of many different planes all smashed together into a chaotic quilt. This strange place is still preferable to the home world of Seantala, which is slowly being destroyed by a half dozen different apocalypses all simultaneously raging across the land. We've decided to include all the content, both for ED&D and for running the game itself, that we worked to create. Perhaps you will feel inspired to create your own Argonath, or a place like it. In either case, thank you for taking a look at this passion project.

Below is a section describing some of what Argonath was, and the style of game it was. More specific information, and some of the mechanics used, will exist in later chapters.

What is a West Marches

A West Marches style campaign is a very specific style of game that involves several DMs and many players all playing the same world. Instead of a regular long running game with the same regular play day, games are put together by different groups of players on different days as they decide to play. The story is less structured, and often built in such a way that the main content is exploring some form of wilderness outside of a hub town that all the players call home. This is how it works in this game, with the D&D sessions involving going out into the wilderness around the safe area, while being able to RP freely in town in between these sessions.

What are the shattered lands

Argonath is in a different dimension than the regular material plane. This place seems to be an endless landscape made up not of normal terrain, but of chunks and sections of other places, stitched together into a patchwork world made up of everywhere else. One might find a volcanic field next to an archipelago of floating islands, or a verdant forest pressed up against a toxic swamp. It’s a world of strange possibility, where one can easily find displaced ruins, and people who’ve been pulled along with these pieces of land to make new homes for themselves.

You are coming here from your original homeworld, Seantala, because the world there is ending. Many different catastrophes plague the world, and it’s no longer viable to stay there. So the remaining people of the world are sending an expedition through the portal they created as a last ditch effort. It has led here, to Argonath. Here, the members of the Expedition must explore this new world, and build a new home for everyone else who will eventually come through the portal as well until this becomes their new home.

Role of the players

As a Character in Argonath, your role is that of a member of the Expeditionary Vanguard. A refugee like everyone else from whatever homeland you hail from in Seantala, you’ve signed up to help the Expedition in their efforts to explore the Shattered Lands and help build up the new settlement. It’s up to you to make this place the home you want it to be.

Base Building

One of the main mechanics of Argonath is the slow build up of Holmgard by constructing various buildings as time progresses. This involves collecting various resources on missions, as well as balancing some key details about the town’s statistics to keep everyone happy and protected. On a regular schedule, there would be new construction projects to select from the list of available options. These options will cycle out. Players are expected to vote for an option in order to participate in the construction process and get what they want built completed.

Leveling Up and Getting Gear

In the Shattered Lands, characters level up by gaining xp. XP given will come primarily from going on missions. The experience rewarded for those missions will be dependent on both the difficulty of those missions, and the level of the people who are going on the mission. In general, gear and gold are gained from missions based on whatever you happen to find while you are there.

Where the Characters live

As Argonath progresses and the settlement of Holmgard grows, the expedition members will find more and more places to call their own, as their residence. Aside from the tents, which everyone will start with access to, eventually you may find lodgings within an inn, a barracks, or even a castle as potential living arrangements. In order to encourage continued comradery among the expedition vanguard, Argonath disallowed Vanguard staff to have a personal home separated from others

mechanics

Chapter VI will contain much of the Lore, mechanics and details about the West Marches game that Argonath was. We write this with the understanding that generally people do not look at books like this for the lore and setting. However, we hope it will serve as an inspiration and give some understanding about how such a game can be run. While not exhaustive of every detail about how Argonath worked, we will present a broad stroke of the various systems and aspects we used. The game went on for some time, developing from the small tent city that the refugees start in to a booming town. However, for the purposes of consistency, Holmgard will be presented here in it's early state.

These are Various rules and modifications to the rules that were used within Argonath. You may find them useful in your own game as well.

Fatty Corruption

Corruption happens quite frequently in some of the mechanics, monsters, and even player features that appear in Argonath. All of them were designed with using the Variant Fatty Corruption as it exists within the Widening Wares of Windrest book. Please reference that for the rules related to corruption.

Foraging

A foraging character makes a Wisdom (Survival) check to find food in the area, and may do so once per day, and the attempt takes at least an hour regardless of whether you succeed or fail. This may include searching out mushrooms, finding edible plants, fishing, or other small sources in the area that may not already be exhausted. On a success, you may roll a d6 + your wisdom mod to determine the pounds of food you find. When gathered this the food stays fresh for no more than 3 days.

When foraging around camp the DC is 15 due to how over foraged the area around camp already is, and produces normal food

When fishing, the area is more plentiful, and so the DC is only 10. However, you require gear that would allow you to do so and also only get slimming food.

The Feed Spell

For balance reasons, it makes ED&D function a lot smoother to bring the feed spell down in power. The feed spell, along with any ability that provides a feed spell like ability (ranged attack check that feeds 1d8), uses 1d6’s for all rolls instead of 1d8’s.

Pressure limit override

This is a rule for when you are using inflation content along with fat or muscle content. When calculating whether LtA or liquid pressure has put your over your Bulk/Flex limits, you may use your pressure limit instead if it is higher. You still go over those normal bulk/flex limits if you exceed them with bulk/flex alone.

Ex 1: A creature with a flex limit of 150 and pressure limit of 200 does not count as over their first flex limit if they have 160lbs of LtA pressure and 30lbs of flex.Ex 2: A creature with a flex limit of 150 and pressure limit of 200 does count as over their first flex limit if they have 30lbs of LtA pressure and 160lbs of flex.Final Pressure limitsYou do not suffer the effects of being Immobilized or Musclebound in addition to the effects of being over your final inflation limit.

Help Proficiency

Creatures wanting to use the help action for skill and tool checks must have proficiency in the skill they want to help with. However, creature’s receiving the help action do not need to have proficiency in what they are rolling.

Weight in different forms

When taking an alternate form involving an animal, such as through polymorph and wild shape, your current bulk level and food in your stomach does not carry over to the new form. However, any food eaten in the new form does stay in your stomach when you return to your own form. This means if you turn into an Elephant, eat 30lbs of food and then turn back, you will still have that food in your stomach. This does not cause you to take overstuffing damage.

Additionally, any weight gain you would experience in your alternate form does not apply to that form. Instead it applies to your regular form, manifesting when you return to it.

Reworked Ravenous Condition

It's been a point of contention for some time about the way the Ravenous condition functions. This is a change we have decided to make to update the condition to be less of a full stun to a character, and be more dynamic in how it effects combat. The desire is to make it more 'fun' than just turning off a character.

New Ravenous Condition

Overwhelmed by maddening hunger, the creature is no longer able to control its appetite. The Ravenous condition can only affect creatures with a stomach capacity who are capable of eating food.

  • A ravenous creature does not roll to stuff itself, and instead acts as if they had rolled a Natural 20 on their eating check. When taking the eating action, they consume their entire eating skill in pounds of food instead of half.

  • The creature must use its Action or Bonus action to feed themselves by the best and most effective means, this could be food in the area, or by abilities and spells they possess, and can only use its movement to move toward a potential source of food until it has eaten food on its turn. After doing so, they may use their remaining actions and movement normally. If the creature cannot use an action to consume food or move closer to food, they are unable to take any actions on their turn as they are racked with hunger.

  • The creature automatically fails any saving throws against effects that would immediately cause them to consume food, but not effects that would have them consume food later, such as Narce's Hypnotic Trance. Attack rolls that would force a ravenous creature to eat food are made with advantage.

  • If the creature takes overstuffing damage, it has advantage on any saving throws that would end the ravenous condition.

Survivors and Soldiers

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (10)

Back on the other side of the Portal, in the old world Seantala, the world has been ending for some time. However, it’s not just one thing that’s been plaguing your old home. Many different catastrophes rage across Seantala that your character may have been escaping from. In addition to considering where your character might be from in this old world, also consider what apocalypse struck there, as each character from Seantala has survived one of these, and carries additional benefits because of those hardships. Consider them like backgrounds, though they do not replace them.

Fimbulwinter

No one Quite knows how it started, but everyone remembers when the snow started falling and never really stopped. The part of the world you’re from is experiencing a magically enforced ice age, and everything is slowly freezing under its weight. Snow grows deeper, burying the farms. Whole forests of trees have lost their leaves to never regain them again. Those that still survive have to forage for what remains, and hopefully find a way to keep warm.

  • Used to surviving frigid temperatures, you’re better at handling the cold for it. As a reaction in response to taking cold damage, you can gain resistance to cold damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Survival Checks due to all your time spent trying to get by in a frozen land. Additionally, you start with a set of winter clothing sized for you, a necessity where you came from.

Gravitronic Void

There is a place in the world where the very fabric of reality has started to fray at the edges, unfortunately you lived there. It started simple one day, with everyone and everything gently floating upwards, just a little into the air, only to collapse back down a few moments later. Then it happened again and again, often longer, or stronger. Sometimes you’re pulled up instead of down. Your old homeland has become a fractured mess of floating islands and scattered rumble. You woke up, sometimes falling and sometimes floating, and you were one of the lucky ones.

  • Used to getting battered around by sudden changes in gravity, you’re better at taking a beating. As a reaction in response to taking bludgeoning damage, you can gain resistance to bludgeoning damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Acrobatics due to all the time you spent moving around weightless, but also know how dangerous momentum can be, and tend to stay thinner. You start with a climber’s kit that helped you get around the strange landscape those gravity fluxes created.

Undead Scourge

The dead no longer sleep comfortably in the ground. Instead, they’ve all risen, over and over, in their unending task to force the living to join them in undeath. The cities fell first, then swarms of zombies and skeletons poured across the countryside. No necromancer leads them, only dark purpose. They’ve consumed everything you knew, even as you and others like you resisted the dead. Yet each you slew only rose again, and each you lost became a new enemy.

  • Used to dealing with death, you’re better at withstanding their power. As a reaction in response to taking necrotic damage, you can gain resistance to necrotic damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Religion, due to your time spent studying your undying enemy. Additionally, your time fighting against the undead has left you very aware of the strength of the right tools, and have a single flask of holy water just in case.

Everstorm

Roiling storm clouds blanket the skies in a thick permanent gray during the day, while nights are lightless voids filled with rain. Thunder and lightning strike everywhere and Tornadoes rip buildings from their foundations. The place you live has become a land of endless natural fury, and all of it seems determined to erase mortals from the world. You’ve survived though, with cleverness and gumption. This storm will not master you.

  • Used to endless hurricanes, you’ve survived plenty. As a reaction in response to taking thunder damage, you can gain resistance to thunder damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Nature, having seen it survive the storms better than any human has, you’ve learned to pay attention to it. Additionally, you’ve found a bit of luck never goes amiss. You have a fortunate rock which can be used once to give you advantage on a roll, after which it breaks.

The Feast Swarm

Most people say the wizards did it, and they’re probably right. A spell gone awry, self replicating and unending, swarms of sentient food spread outwards in all directions. For one reason or another, they seem determined to feed themselves to anyone they come across, and the effects are staggering. People ran while increasingly wide legs could carry them, or were buried under bread and pasta. Yet the food continued to come, and you either adapted or found yourself helpless before it, even as giant food fell from the sky to crush the cities themselves.

  • Used to enormous meals of magical food, you know how to cram it in. As a reaction in response to taking overstuffing damage, you can gain resistance to overstuffing damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain Proficiency in Eating, being quite experienced in the matter. In fact you’re so used to eating so much your base stomach capacity is increased by 2, as per stretching stomach rules. Additionally, surviving all these magical force feedings have left their mark on you. You start with additional weight equal to your base weight as fat and start with 1 point of corruption.

Burning Sun

One day the sun simply grew closer, and with it came the heat, unending and oppressive. Rivers dried up and lakes emptied into barren holes. Soon enough, even the dirt started to turn to sand that would soon swallow your homeland whole. You and any other survivors were left to wander the desert, looking for any scrap of shelter you could find.

  • Used to burning hot temperatures, you know how to shake off the heat. As a reaction in response to taking fire damage, you can gain resistance to fire damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Athletics, having learned to push your body to survive in extreme circ*mstances, and you start at your base weight due to the lacking resources in the burning desert you survived in. You additionally start with 4 waterskins.

Aether Vortex

Your realm is partially merged with the flow of magic, and raw mana scours the land in roiling storms of chaotic power. Likely the fool who caused it was the first victim of its power, leaving that gateway open, as more and more chaotic aether pours through. It’s hard to keep society together when bolts of lighting rip across the countryside like deadly plow blades, and so… you and everyone else has been forced to simply do what they can to escape that awesome power.

  • Used to sudden and random bursts of energy, you know how to be ready for a good shock. As a reaction in response to taking lightning damage, you can gain resistance to lightning damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Arcana, having come to a certain understanding about the magic ravaging the land around you. Additionally, you have a storm charged glass sphere. It constantly rattles with contained magic lightning, and gives off light like a candle when held in a free hand.

The Rising Tide

The chain of islands and coasts that make up the home you knew are slowly being swallowed up by the heightening waters. The only wave to survive in such a place was to take to the waves as buildings either washed away or ended up sunk below. Living out of whatever boats were around works for a while, but eventually without land all will be doomed.

  • It’s not uncommon to have to fight off the many carnivorous fish when diving down for supplies and salvage in sunken ruins. Their needle-like teeth have left their mark on your memory. As a reaction in response to taking piercing damage, you can gain resistance to piercing damage until the start of your next turn. After using this ability, you must take a long rest before you can use it again.

  • You gain proficiency in Sleight of Hand, having learned your way around boats involves a lot of difficult and quick knotwork. Additionally, you have an old trident, a useful fishing tool and weapon, and have proficiency in using tridents.

With people and places being slotted into the patchwork plane of Argonath, Gods have also come in from far and wide from various other planes and Seantala. These deities serve as additions to the standard forgotten realm pantheon that are present and tied to the doomed world.

Ayr, Goddess of Farmlands

One of the trinity of deities who are in charge of the various stages of civilization. She is the protector of the farm lands, of rural towns and cozy farms. She is a deity of ever shifting personas, as she shifts with the seasons. She ensures that those who pay the proper respect to the land and nature around them will be gifted with a veritable bounty of food and plenty, to share with their neighbors and family. During the spring she is overflowing with love and adoration, filling plants with the energy they need to sprout and the animals the energy they need to bring about the next cycle of life. During the summer she grows lax and calm, ensuring cool breezes flow and rain comes regularly. For fall she grants energy to harvest and to feast and gorge for the coming winters, and to ensure there is plenty of food in store to stave off the frigid months. In winter she ensures the hearth is warm, cozy, and safe, to last through the rougher months. An odd boon she presents to some of her followers is the gift of milk, to provide a unique bounty to those who desire it. Some bare it with devotion, while others relish in the experience.

Being a seasonal deity, Ayr has many looks. She is seen in a state of half dress in spring, in a flurry of life and energy. In summer she looks more fit, but laid back and relaxed. For fall she is energized and active, bundled up for the coming winters. Winter is where she is the thickest, and always presented with a warm meal by the fire. Some depictions do show her with a chest full of milk, oftentimes leaking.

Caz, God of the Wild

One of the deities who are in charge of the various stages of civilization. He is the god of the wilds, of untamed lands devoid of any civilization. Out here the law is to eat, to be able to survive against whatever is thrown against you. Those with a surplus of food are the ones who are succeeding, surviving, thriving. There is no one to care for but yourself and those you bond yourself with for survival. Should you prove to be lesser, to be eaten, you have failed, and become part of the natural system of the world.To need civilization is to be weak, a social group should only need each other to survive. Caz values those who can make use of the entirety of their kill. Many interpret that as simply making use of every part of their meals, while others have taken on the habit of swallowing their prey whole.

Caz is depicted as a wild man, unkempt but free, often clad in furs and pelts. A large spear is by his side, and utterly detached from anything man made. Depictions are often made in cave paintings.

Civona, Goddess of Civilization

One of the trinity of deities in charge of the various stages of civilization. She is the goddess of civilization, of towns and cities, anywhere with more infrastructure and the availability for luxury. She is the patron of those who provide goods beyond the simple necessities of life, the song of bards, the fine fabrics of dresses, and the lavish company of a lover paid in gold. Anything that comes with more established civilizations is things she adores. The simple raw materials are of little interest to her, she inspires those to great and refine these materials for the betterment of everyone. The ultimate goal is to create a system where everyone provides a role to maximize the indulgence people can afford, through fine foods, fine goods, and fine company. During the day labor is necessary, but once night falls is when indulgence is to be had, to let drinks flow freely and merriment to be had. What is the point of the progress of civilization if not to enjoy it.

Kukin, Goddess of the Kitchen

During the early days of creation, many races got their sustenance through simple means. Boiling or roasting meats and veggies over flames. There was no passion, no creativity, no drive behind the act beyond simply surviving. Kukin saw this and descended to each of the races and imparted them with the creativity and drive to diversify their food and experiment to make things far more delicious than ever before. She gifted spices, told which herbs go best with what, and showed unique ways to prepare food. She taught how to love cooking, and showed that food can be so very special. From there, cooking was born, as the races went and prepared their dishes in unique ways, delighting the senses and making the Goddess proud. Dwarves and their utilization of tubers and roots, Orcs and their masterful ability to grill, smoke, and otherwise prepare meats, Elves and their skillful techniques that elevated any dish to artistic levels. Kukin loves to see people enjoy cooking, and she loves to see those who enjoy eating.

Kukin is often portrayed as a portly woman with features that are typically associated with cooks in various cultures. To each race she took on a different form, so to each culture she has a different appearance. Most often she is seen in a full cooks outfit, apron and mitts on, preparing a lavish meal.

Common forms of Worship: Naming a meal in her honor, indulging in a well made meal, donating cookware to those who need it

Symbol: A fork and knife crossed over each other

Typical Alignment: Any Good

Typical Domains: Forge, Hedonism, Life

Typically worshiped by: Chefs, cooks, gourmands, gluttons. Those who love to cook, create, and eat wondrous foods.

Muscica, Goddess of Fitness

There are those who are strong and there are those who are weak. But through effort all can grow to be better than those born strong. Focus, effort, and practice can make a goblin stronger than an orc, or a dwarf faster than an elf. This is what Muscica gifted all creation with, the innate ability to improve yourself through practice. To hone your body to become the best form of yourself you can become, the greatest equalizer, only acquired by those who can put the work in to achieve it. The best form you can become isn’t always skinny and buff, as a great amount of power can be displayed under layers and layers of blubber. The one thing the fitness goddess cannot stand is those who are lazy and indolent, who don’t raise a finger into improving their physique.

Muscica is often portrayed as a muscular woman, built strong and hardy, not an inch of her with imperfections. Clad in armor that exemplifies her physique, while also bearing a great deal of protection. She isn’t portrayed with any weapon, as her greatest power is the one she has cultivated for so long, her own fists.

Common forms of Worship: Working out, assisting other in working out, proving your improvements on the battlefield

Symbol: A dumbbell wreathed in flames

Typical Alignment: Any Lawful

Typical Domains: Fitness, Light, War

Typically worshiped by: Gladiators, brawlers, athletes, soldiers, laborers, barbarians. Those who utilize their physique for their daily lives.

Pallon, Deity of Inflation

Out at sea, where the sea met the sky was where Palon came to be. They looked out and found the world was so… Dull, boring, without entertainment! They had no idea why they were here, who they were, or what kind of powers they had, but they knew they were going to have fun! Diving into the sea, she found one of the many creatures of the deep that had a special surprise, the puffer fish. Trying to mess with it, she found the creature expanded into a ball, round and floating, and found it to be far too amusing to be limited to this one fish. Heading over to one of the earliest settlements by the coast, he began to inflict the population with various pranks revolving around them puffing up with air. These pranks began to change and evolve, as they experimented with water, juice, and gasses that caused them to float. Soon enough, those who saw the power of this ability began to make offerings to be granted these powers, to begin to study it, and mastered it for their own gains. Some used it for power, others used it for pleasure, but Pallon hardly cared at this point.

Depictions of Pallon are never consistent. Oftentimes they are a robed individual, always varying in how she is presented. His skin is always blue, and a mischievous smile is plastered on their face.

Common forms of Worship: Playing pranks, inflating others, making people laugh

Symbol: A circle with a swirl in the center, horizontal waves on the bottom half, and vertical waves on the top, depicting the three forms of inflation

Typical Alignment: Any Chaotic

Typical Domains: Girth, Tempest, Trickery

Typically worshiped by: Tricksters, sneaks, thieves. People who enjoy the sensation of swelling up, or swelling others.

Syn, Devil Lord of Corruption

The hierarchy of the Nine Hells is one of constant turmoil as various Devil Lords muscle each other in and out of positions of power. Lipomancy is a curveball which causes a great amount of turmoil. None of the Devil’s utilized quiet so effectively as the Arch-Fatcubus Syn. She holds no throne on any of the layers of Hell, but she holds enough power through lipomancy to be considered one of the most powerful of the Devils (that and none of the thrones would be able to hold her fat ass). She specializes in the sweet seductive temptation of total hedonism, and the corruptive elements associated with Lipomancy. While many devils trick and fool with contracts and sweet words, she gains souls through sweets and delights. She has a long standing rivalry with Muscica, the Goddess despising her spread of indolence, and the Devil thinking the fitness Goddess could stand to let go a bit.

Syn is depicted as a very wide lardy woman, though still holding a seductive shape beyond all her blubber. A great crown of horns sit on her head as she lounges decadently, a great mountain of food by her side to allow her to delight in as she pleases. Many figures of varying sizes are often seen with her, tempting the viewer to join them and indulge.

Common forms of Worship: Being Corrupted, corrupting others, being immobile, force feeding others

Symbol: A simplified depiction of a curvy woman. How wide she is varies from depiction to depiction

Typical Alignment: Any Evil

Typical Domains: Corruption, Hedonism, Slob

Typically worshiped by: Cultists, slobs, hedonists. Those who are swayed into hedonism by dark forces.

Racial Fatty Abilities

ED&D of course comes with its own additional themed abilities for non-ED&D races. However there are quite a few races that do not have them yet. Please refer to these abilities below to fill in those gaps or had one of a different subkink. In an instance where two fatty abilities are part of allowed content for the same race, such as for Kobold with Dragon’s Stomach and Stretchy Hide, you must choose only one to take.

Bugbear

Efficient Feeder: Whenever you successfully grapple a creature, you may use your bonus action to attempt to force feed them.

Kobold

Dragon’s Stomach: In an attempt to emulate the mighty dragons, you’re able to stomach a lot more food than your size may show. You count as a size category larger when calculating your stomach capacity.

Minotaur

Foregut: Your stomach is specially designed with many chambers to handle difficult to digest foods. Your digestion rate is doubled.

Firbolg

Bountiful Hospitality: Your natural attunement with the natural world allows you to be able to provide (or overprovide) to those who need it. Once per long rest, you can cast Good Berry without material components. Goodberries made this way are considered Fattening.

Genasi

Elemental Nourishment: Through your attunement with elemental magics, you can absorb the element you are attuned to and make it into harmless fat. Once per long rest you may reduce damage taken from a specific damage type equal to 1d12+your constitution modifier, turning it into twice as many pounds of fat. The element you can resist depends on what element Genasi you are, fire damage for Fire, cold damage for Water, acid damage for Earth, and lightning damage for Air.

Harengon

Leafy Greens: Always munching on some grass or hay, you can find food anywhere. Any time you are in a natural environment, you have access to an unlimited supply of slimming food by eating plants growing around you.

Kenku

Tricky Feeders: You’re able to use your cunning and agility more effectively when cramming food into people. You may use your Dexterity (Sleight of Hand) in place of Strength (Athletics) when force feeding a target.


Triton

Deep Sea Adaptation: The deep sea is an environment where food is often scarce, and you’d need to be able to swallow as much as you can when you do bump into it. Your body is naturally adapted to be able to handle swallowing down a greater amount of food in a single sitting. You can cast Stretch Stomach on yourself innately a number of times equal to your Constitution modifier, which is also your spellcasting ability for this spell. You regain casts on a long rest.

Satyr

Fey Gluttony: Satyrs are always eager to party and get merry. This also reflects in a natural tendency to glut themselves. When rolling for stuffing, the Satyr makes the Constitution(Eating) check with advantage.

Leonin

Lion's Share: Your metabolism is mighty and hungry, and when food is passed around you’re the first one to be served. Wherever a creature is targeted by a spell or action that would have them be force fed food within 5 ft of you, you may use your reaction to eat the food in their stead.

Yuan-ti

Energized Eating: Like many reptilian species, you are used to consuming mass amounts of food in one go to get the most of your meals. By consuming food until your stomach is full, including an eating check, during a short rest, you can gain the maximum value of any hit dice you roll to regain health.

Tabaxi

Fat Cat: By leaning into the imagery of a lazy glutton in a way that involves you eating at least your eating skill modifier in pounds of food, you may gain advantage on one charisma based ability roll against creatures that watch you do it. You may do this a number of times per day equal to your constitution modifier, regaining expended uses at the end of a long rest.

Replaced/Modified Abilities

Below are Racial Fatty Abilities that already exist, but are rewritten to function differently.

Gith

Mind Over Matter: You may replace either Strength or Constitution with your Intelligence score when calculating your Bulk, Flex, or Inflation limits.

Genasi

Elemental Capacity: Your attunement to the elemental planes allows you to replace either Dexterity or Constitution with your Charisma score to determine your Pressure Limit.

Gelatinfolk (Rewritten)

This is completely rewritten version of the Gelatinfolk as they appear in ExpanD&D.


First born of the hedonistic desires of an ancient weight lich, many artificers throughout the ages delving into weight magic have copied those methods to create their own. These creatures are edible slimelike beings that have since grown an intelligent mind of their own.. They are extremely diverse in form and mind, with each one being created by different masters for different functions.These functions are often unknown to them, as gelatinfolk often gain sentience and memory only after their creator’s death.

Gelatinfolk Traits

Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 2 and your Dexterity score increases by 1.

Age. Gelatinfolk don’t follow normal patterns of age or maturity, though most are not sentient when they are born. The time that they awaken this way is usually considered their “birthday.” Some know that they will “expire” one day, while others do not, and gelatinfolk as old as a thousand years have been recorded.

Alignment. Because they were created to be servants or even tools, sentience is rarely a trait designed by the creator. Thus, Gelatinfolk choose their own paths in life after awakening to it, and don’t tend towards any particular alignment. The exceptions are those for whom sentience was indeed desired by the creator, where they are generally Lawful.

Size. Gelatinfolk come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from small ones once treated as pets to great ones using their bodies as a food hoard. With proper care a small one could become medium and a medium one large, but your regular size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30ft.

Languages. Gelatinfolk speak Common and primordial

Determining Height and Weight

Use the below table to determine a character of this race's base weight for bulk calculations, and also to randomly determine their starting height and weight if desired.

RaceBase HeightHeight ModifierBase WeightBase Weight
Gelatinfolk4'8"+2d10100 lb.x (2d6) lb.

hom*ogenous. Without a solid frame or definite organs, variations in weight affect you differently. You do not suffer Emaciation from being below your base weight, instead changing into a small size category creature until you are above your base weight again. If you fall below 25 lbs, you become “dormant” until you regain weight above 25lbs again. Additionally, you are not restrained while immobilized by your bulk, but do still have your speed reduced to zero.

Additionally, due to your stretchy body, your eating capacity is equal to their Constitution score, but you can't make stuffing rolls and take overstuffing damage as normal. Magic that increases your capacity further still works normally.

Amorphous Body. Gelatinfolk are made of a malleable substance, and can modify their shape as an action, similar to the Alter Self spell, such as their weight distribution, features, or even number of limbs, though mechanically you do not benefit from any additional limbs beyond two arms and two legs. You cannot change your size, weight, color, or texture to anything other than what it normally is. However, such shape changing features give you two additional advantages:

  • You may don or doff any wearable piece of equipment or set of armor as an action, regardless of how long it may have otherwise taken to normally put it on.

  • You may squeeze through spaces as if you take up the space of a creature one size smaller than you actually do.

Food Composition. Any creature that hits you with a bite attack eats pounds of fatty food equal to your proficiency modifier, doubled on a critical hit, and you lose an equivalent amount of mass. Additionally, losing weight through diet and exercise is harder for you. Halve the number of pounds of fat you lose at the end of a long rest from exercise points or a deficit of diet points.

Slimy Snack. You can use part of your body to feed a creature any time you would force a creature to eat food, losing pounds of fat equal to the feeding done. However, the inborn directives of all Gelatinfolk keep them from simply removing parts of themselves without it being to directly feed another creature, meaning this can’t be used to simply drop weight.

Subspecies

Viscogelatin

The most common and sticky variant of Gelatinfolk. These were originally designed to serve as a sort of basic feeding unit.

Sticky. Viscogelatin are not particularly fast or slow. Given that they are quite sticky, however, they are able to scale even sheer walls with ease, albeit slowly. You gain a climbing speed of 10ft and can climb and hang from surfaces as smooth as glass without making an Athletics check.

If you are immobilized, but have bulk equal to less than twice your immobility threshold, you still retain a 10ft movement speed, but cannot dash.

Subsuming Stance. Due to the nature of your form, you can easily morph to occupy an area where someone already is. As part of your movement, you may lower your density a little and occupy and move through spaces that other creatures also occupy. You do not provoke attacks of opportunity this way if you moved into an occupied space. At the end of your turn where you moved this way, you may choose to force any creature whose space you occupy to make a Constitution Saving Throw (DC = 8 + your proficiency + your Constitution Modifier), or be forced to consume pounds of fatty food equal to twice your proficiency modifier and have their speed reduced to zero until the end of their next turn. On a success, they eat half as much food and their speed is unaffected. You slim equal to any food eaten this way.

As long as you maintain the same position, those creatures must remake the save for the same effect again at the end of each of their turns.

You may use this ability a number of times equal to your constitution modifier, regaining all uses on a long rest.

Vivagelatin

Another variant on the original mold. The VivaGelatin were carefully sculpted with strength and density in mind.

Dense. Your body is made of thicker stuff than the average Gelatinfolk. Your unarmored AC is 13 + your Constitution Modifier. If a class ability or spell offers a new way to calculate your AC, such as offered by the Barbarian, Monk, Sorcerer classes, or the Mage Armor spell, you must choose which one you want to use.

This resilience also gives you resistance to piercing damage, but you take 1 additional damage from any source of slashing damage.

Bouncy Body. Wiggly and wobbly, your form gives you unique advantages when something tries to harm you. Whenever you take fall damage, you instead take half as much.

Also, whenever a weapon attack hits you, you may use your reaction to force the creature to reroll the attack, possibly causing it to instead miss. If it does, then you can’t use this part of the feature again until you finish a short rest.

Kitsune

Faithful and Fluffy

Kitsune are the descendants of vulpine creatures who had been awakened in ancient times, though scriptures are unsure if it was a natural awakening or there was divine intervention.

Most, however, will agree that Kitsune are clever people who are just as likely to trick you as to be your stalwart friend.With the powers granted to them, Kitsune are able to blend into the mortal population through their limited ability to shapeshift. Some choose to use this gift to cause mischief, indulging in base trickery. Others use their clever minds to appraise or sway conversations in their favor.

Some choose to remain secluded in quiet settlements or shrines, practicing the proper arts of brewing the finest tea…or spirits.Most, if not all have the same features they evolved with: A lithe and agile humanoid form, displaying vulpine features in the form of ears, sharper claws, teeth and the immutable brush-like tail. While some do choose to reveal this ‘true’ form, others choose to disguise themselves as humanoids local to where they live, blending into the background and indulging in life amongst the people.Though there are many claims that kitsune are not quite mortal, being tied to spiritual realms, that when their time has come, they leave as quietly as they came.

Colourations of fur often seem to vary, often being various shades of browns, oranges, black, gray, reds and sometimes blondes. More exotic shades and colors are a rarity, often associated with magical prowess, an elder’s lineage or just Inari wanting to stand out more often than not.

In recent decades, however, lipomantic energies have rocked this proud or secluded society in sometimes direct or curious ways. Tricks or enchantments wielded seem to fatten or swell their unwitting victims. The once secluded drinkers have grown fat and joyous over their love of brews, willing to push the limits of their stomachs.

Some have even developed horns and the strangest ability to produce milk as easily as cattle while some have developed darker abilities to drain the very essence from foes, vitality and fat alike.

What does the future hold for the Kitsune? What awaits them? Will they display themselves for all to see or hide away in obscurity despite their bulging waistlines.

Kitsune names

Names can vary from place to place. A kitsune who wishes to blend in with the settlement or region they have chosen as their home will often take on a name from that location. Other kitsune who are perhaps more proud of their heritage shall take on extravagant names or even titles despite perhaps lacking ‘nobility’

Most ancestral kitsune names come from the far off lands, sounding more mysterious and intriguing more than anything. They often have hidden meanings.

Kitsune Traits

Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma score increases by 2.

Age. Kitsune reach adulthood at 16, cease physical aging in their early 20s and often live around the venerable age of elves. Age can be denoted by the number of tails one would have, with the most powerful wielders of magic and or the most venerable of elders having nine. It is unknown if they are functionally immortal or merely return to the realm of spirits when their time approaches.

Alignment. Due to their nature of being a bit mischievous, Kitsune are often chaotic. Even the most skilled monks find it difficult to ignore the desire to be a bit mischievous at times, but they tend to approach the trick in a much more planned out and guided manner. Kitsune are known to be both good and evil.

Size. Kitsune are generally on the smaller side of most humanoids ranging from 4’1” to the tallest being just under 6’. Weight-wise, kitsune are as light and agile as they look at around 75 lbs. However, some Kitsune affected by lipomantic energies were often heavier, their base weight being almost double that of their peers. Your base weight is 75 lbs unless otherwise stated.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

RaceBase HeightHeight ModifierBase WeightBase Weight

kitsunushi4'1"+2d6100 lb.x (2d8) +50 lb.
  • Yako and Kumiho.

Cunning Arcana. In tune with their magical nature, Kitsune can call upon clever magics at will. You know Produce Flame cantrip, with the exception that your flame is blue. You also know the Disguise Self spell which you can cast at will, but are limited to a single average humanoid appearance that you choose when you select this race.Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells when you cast them with this trait (choose when you select this race).

Darkvision. Your vulpine ancestry allows you to have superior vision in dark and dim conditions. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness as if it were dim light. You can’t discern color in darkness, only shades of gray.

Languages. You can speak, read, and write Common and either Celestial or Sylvan.

Subspecies

Kitsune develop some of their innate abilities through the environment around them and the people they meet.

Inari

Inari Kitsune are those who have integrated themselves within settlements and high society, often showing their true selves as a point of pride and sometimes an overinflated ego.

They often become politicians, traders, merchants, diplomats and other occupations where the Inari’s power of words is key.Some claim they have given into decadence and indulgence, having a more hefty form than the ideal, slender figures.

Ability Score Increase. Your Intelligence score increases by 1.

Inari Superiority. Known for the powers of their ego, their voice carries weight when they choose to assert it, but inflating their ego tends to inflate their figure. When you make a Charisma skill check, after you roll but before the outcome is revealed, you may choose to roll an additional d20. You may choose which of the d20s is used for the ability check. You gain Bulk equal to the result of the roll. Once you have used this ability, you must complete a long rest before you can use it again.

Zenko

Zenko Kitsune are known to be more traditional, secluding themselves from the world to practice their fine art of brewing. Many seem a little more than indulgent to push their limits when it comes to consuming fine brews, be it tea or spirits. To learn from a Zenko, is to learn true wisdom…and perhaps end up with quite the belly too!

Ability Score Increase. Your Wisdom score increases by 1.

Brewer’s Belly. Some claim that a Zenko can go toe to toe with a dwarf in a drinking contest, that much is indeed true. A long life of brewing fine drinks and glutting yourselves on them has quite the effect on the body! You have advantage on all rolls related to resisting the effects of alcohol. In addition, if you would make an overstuffing roll while your stomach is filled only with liquids, you can treat the result of the d20 roll as a 20. However, all liquid digested after using this effect has +2 diet points per pint. Once you have used this feature, you cannot use it again until you finish a short or long rest.

Yako

The best trick is the one you never see coming! A Yako Kitsune is clever, cunning and often quick witted. While many claim they fall in with a bad crowd, sometimes it is only natural. A Yako can turn fortune on a dime, for fate is just another cruel trick. Just watch out for the payback~

Ability Score Increase. Your Dexterity score increases by 1.

Thief of Fortune. When a hostile creature you can see within 30 ft of you rolls a 20 on an attack roll, ability check, or saving throw, you can use your reaction to force that creature to reroll the die. Your target must use the new roll, even if it is worse. The target also loses bulk equal to twice the amount rerolled on the die with you gaining it instead. Once you use this ability, you must complete a short or long rest before using it again.

Kumiho

Rumored to be ‘sinister’ given their ability to sustain themselves on life essence, Kumiho are a more secretive society of Kitsune. Myths paint them as both benevolent and malevolent light, while the truth is often simple: An offshoot who’s powers developed in a manner many would consider a curse.

Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 1.

Essence Collection. Kumiho can absorb the lingering essence from the living, dying or recently dead, sustaining themselves without the need for traditional food. Whenever you grapple a creature or when a creature reaches 0 hit points within 10ft of you, you may use your reaction to draw upon their essence. You expend one of your hit dice, restoring hit points equal to the result plus your constitution modifier, gaining the same amount of diet points as well. Once you use this ability, you must complete a short or long rest before using it again.

Kitsunushi

Blessed by divinity, afflicted by a terrible curse or perhaps what happens when an Auðumbla and kitsune bond closely. Kitsunushi are…different, with often floppier ears, wider frames and…a pair of horns? Perhaps more comely, kindly and open than their peers, Kitsunushi develop into motherly or fatherly figures while milk is always on the table.

Note: Most Kitsunushi appear to cease aging around their mid 30s rather than early 20s.

Ability Score Increase. Your Constitution score increases by 1.

Kitsunushi’s Blessing. Be it divinity, curse or being just part cow, you lactate and it seems to have some magical properties too.You are always considered lactating.

You can cast Purify food and drink once with this trait and regain the ability to do so when you finish a Long Rest. Any drink you purify this way becomes refreshing milk. In addition, you may grant a blessing to a creature who reaches their regular stomach capacity with your milk alone, giving them the benefits of the bless spell until they complete a short rest. After using this feature, you must complete a long rest before you can use it again.

Veggian

In the distant depths of forests, in lands untouched by the greater machinations of the outside world, the Veggians live. Attuned in all ways with nature, many mistake them for Dryads or other forest spirits, but they are wholly unique in their existence. Small and isolated, their origins are faded and unknown. Some think they arose as an antithesis to the Feast Swarm, a healthy alternative to the endless hedonism of the swarm, while others see them as a far older entity before the rise of Lipomancy.

Diverse and Unique

The Veggians are wholly unique in their appearances, individuals from the same family can be totally different from each other. Being built differently from other races their skin has the texture of various plants, being the soft leaves of trees, rough bark, or the roots of tubers. Their skin can take on a variety of hues, though the most common are Greens and Browns, though rare colourations such as orange and purple can be seen in some individuals. They’re rather slim in their build, by no means undernourished, but having a healthy diet with a variety of nutrients to allow for them to properly grow, even being able to gain energy from simple sun and water. Their heights vary wildly as well, with some being as short or shorter than 4’8, and others towering at 7 foot. Shorter individuals tend to take on features similar to root vegetables, while taller individuals tend to look more like trees.

Their hair has similar attributes unique to them, growing in a variety of textures like mosses, grass, leaves, or shockingly similar to hair. Sometimes they have additional leaves growing out of their hair to absorb more sunlight, and on rare occasions have flowers growing from them. A Veggians flower is very important to them, as it is a symbol of attraction and availability for romance, so never pick a Veggians flower without permission.

Secluded Woodland Tribes

Veggian society is rather hard to know of, with few scholars being allowed to live and engage with the plant folk long enough to record any information on them. While Elves have cities built into and with forests, and Firbolgs have small towns built into the woods, Veggians have even smaller tribes of three to four families living in a vast swath of forest. These families work closely together to raise young, forage for food, tend to crops, and protect their lands.There is great importance in their culture of moderation and taking only what they need, supplementing anything else with sunlight as the trees do. Those who are gluttonous or greedy are often shunned, cast out to the wider world where they may find civilizations that more suit their fancy. They prefer to use simple weapons, such as spears and clubs when it comes to defense, and many are attuned with the natural powers of the forest to assist in their hunts. Some tribes are even known to make alliances with the wiser beasts of their forests, assisting them in exchange for their assistance.

Many often worry that eating plants is taboo for the Veggian, but to them it would be the same as eating a cow or chicken. While yes, it is a bit strange in some sense to eat something so similar to you in a broad sense, they are not fully sentient like them, so it is far more acceptable. Their taste buds don’t have many receptors for savory foods, so they often stick to sweeter foods, or the neutral flavours of leafy plants.

Hesitant Explorers

Due to their natural inclination to stay away from any civilization, it is rare to see a Veggian in a city, town, or village. But rarely due to circ*mstances they may be forced out. Their home forest burns down, they are sent on a sacred quest, moving to start their own tribe, or banishment are often the reasons for a Veggian to be outside their woods. The majority of society bound Veggians have been banished for having a desire for more in life, delighting in more hedonistic desires than their restrained cultures would prefer. Oftentimes it is rarely done out of malice towards the indulgent, but simply knowing the outside world has what they seek, and they wish not to jeopardize their woods with the inclinations of greed.

Names

Veggians take their names from the natural world and what is around them. Changing names are not unheard of as they change and grow. A child born green may be called Fresh Spring, but turns orange with age, and chooses to change their name accordingly. Natural landmarks, plant names, or other similar aspects are often used as names, with additional descriptors to make it more suitable to their own inclination as well as ensuring there is no confusion from popular names. You’d have no idea how many parents think that Leaf is a good name…

Veggian Traits

Ability Score Increase. Your Wisdom increases by 2, and Dexterity by 1

Age. Veggians are a diverse people, whose life cycles can vary from person to person. Typically, they reach maturity at 18 years of age, and can live anywhere from 80 to 300 years

Size. Veggians can vary from individual to individual, being as small as 4’8 to as tall as 7” tall. Your base weight is 100 lbs

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

One with Nature. You gain proficiency your choice between Nature or Survival

Gluttony Restraint. Veggians grew in lands saturated in Lipomancy, and to aid in them not gorging on fattening foods to be prey to something else, they gained a magical resistance to such hungering magics. You have Advantage on Saving throws to resist the Ravenous condition

Nourishing Water. Your biology allows for water to be metabolized to provide extra durability and nutrition. Once per day, if you spend 10 minutes in direct sunlight or a magical equivalent, and consume a number of lbs of water equal to your Proficiency modifier you gain 1d6+your proficiency modifier Temporary Hit Points, gaining an amount of diet points equal to the Temporary hit points gained this way

Attuned to Plants. Your affinity to plants allows you to communicate in a limited manner to plants. While touching a plant, you can ask a simple question, in which the plant can relay information in simplistic abstract ways. Plants often communicate to you in abstract symbols, broken messages, or other esoteric means of communication. You can use this feature a number of times per day equal to your Proficiency modifier

Provide Nourishment. Once per long rest, you can use your action to undergo a lipomantic ritual, which allows you to grow a small fruit or vegetable from your person. You can convert an amount of lbs of fat equal to your proficiency modifier lbs of food. The quality of this food is dependent on your bulk, if you’re at or above your Bulk limit your food is fattening food, and if you’re under your Emaciation limit your food is slimming. Otherwise, you produce normal food. This food spoils after a week.(Variant Nourishing Liquid: Instead of producing a fruit or vegetable which can be picked, your chest fills with a liquid that would be appropriate to your Veggian (Milk, sap, syrup, juice) equal to your proficiency modifier)

Languages. Veggians can speak, read, and write Common, Sylvan and Terran

Barbarian Paths

Path of The Sanguine Hungerer

Half Vampire, yet still half themselves. Sanguine Hungerers may come from strange interactions with Vampirism, not being completely transformed, or even those that have a vampire’s touch somewhere in their lineage. One way or another, the primal hunger of a Vampire, and the strength of a warrior become one in these barbarians. While still able to sustain themselves with regular food, the hunger for blood calls strongly, giving them the power to enter a bloodlust just as any barbarian, searching for a fresh source to sate their fangs. This unique form of vampirism seeks to fill the Hungerer with more than just blood though, draining mass as well, filling the gluttonous warrior with heft that simply feeds back into their powers. One would do well to fear these gluttonous Vampires.

Sanguine Nature

When you take this subclass at 3rd level, aspects of your vampiric nature begin to manifest. While in direct sunlight, you qualify as undead for features that deal additional damage to them, such as Holy Water, or Divine Smite, and have disadvantage on any perception checks.

Additionally, you gain a Sanguine Bite, being able to sink your fangs into a creature as a melee weapon attack. This attack deals 1d6 necrotic damage plus your strength modifier on a hit, causing the creature to lose bulk equal to the damage multiplied by 5. You fatten equal to the bulk lost this way. This attack never has disadvantage from bulk.

If you make this attack against a willing creature, you may transfer the bulk, but forgo doing any damage. However, doing this more than once on the same creature before it takes a short rest requires them to make a Constitution Saving Throw (DC equals 8 + Proficiency + Con Mod), gaining a point of exhaustion on a failure.

The Hunger

Also at 3rd level, your hunger for blood becomes the basis on which you can rage. When you enter a rage in combat, you immediately slim an amount of pounds equal to your barbarian level, plus your constitution modifier, multiplied by 10. You also slim for half this amount if you do not bite a creature on your turn during a rage, or have any unexpended rages when you begin a long rest. If this effect would bring you to 0 bulk, your rage ends, and you gain a level of exhaustion that’s only removable if you fatten past your first bulk limit again.

However, this bloodlust comes with advantages. Your base stomach capacity increases by half your barbarian level, and you may use your bite attack as a bonus action while raging. Bite attacks against willing creatures allow you to continue your rage, even if you chose to not to deal damage.

Piercing Gaze

At 6th level, you gain the ability to leverage the supernatural enthrallment of your vampiric eyes. As a bonus action while raging, you can force a creature you can see within 30 ft to make a Wisdom saving throw (DC equals 8 + Proficiency + Con Mod) or become frightened of you for one minute. The frightened target can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on itself on a success.

Alternatively, you can use this ability when not raging to instead charm a humanoid creature for up to 1 hour if it fails the saving throw. The creature then becomes enamored with you, being able to repeat the saving throw if you or your allies do anything harmful to it.

Sanguine Taste

Blood is a unique thing, and as you sample various types of creatures, you will find each has its own flavor. Starting at 6th level, when you use your sanguine bite against a creature and deal at least one point of damage, you gain an additional Sanguine Effect from the table below, based on the creature type. Unless otherwise stated, these effects last until the start of your next turn.

Sanguine Effect Table

TypeEffect
AberrationAftertaste: You deal 1d6 psychic damage on your next attack.
BeastProwl: You gain 10 feet of movement.
CelestialBright: You ignore the effect of being in direct sunlight and gain resistance to radiant damage.
DragonReptilian Resistance: You gain a bonus to your AC equal to your Rage bonus damage.
ElementalInoculation: You can use your reaction to gain resistance to the next instance of fire, cold, lightning, thunder, or acid damage you take.
FeyFeytastic: You have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.
FiendDiabolic: The next attack against you has disadvantage.
GiantRobust: You double your strength modifier on non-attack rolls.
HumanoidFilling: You regain hit points equal to your proficiency Modifier.
MonstrosityStrange Taste: You have Advantage on your next attack.

Blooded Body

At 10th level, your body begins to awaken more of your vampiric nature when you’re filled with sanguine power. You gain the following benefits based on the bulk limits you’ve exceeded.

Burdened: You have resistance to necrotic damage, a climb speed equal to your regular move speed, and have advantage on perception checks to detect creatures with less than their maximum hit points.

Impeded: You double your bonus rage damage, and cannot be slowed by your bulk while raging. You also add your Constitution modifier to intimidation, persuasion, and Deception rolls.

Immobilized: You gain an additional attack each time you take the attack action, which can only be used to bite. While raging, you may also use your built up sanguine power to grant yourself a fly speed equal to half your regular move speed, slimming 10lbs for each 5ft of movement.

Mortal Hunger

Being still partially mortal, not all of your hunger is sated by blood. Also at 10th level, you may choose to do magical piercing damage instead of necrotic with your Sanguine Bite, more actively attacking a creature with your teeth than drinking from them. However, you can now absorb the essence of things that have no blood at all. You gain the additional possible Sanguine effects below, and when you bite such a creature, instead of gaining weight, your stomach fills with half the amount of damage your bite dealt as fatty food.

Additional Sanguine Effects

TypeEffect
ConstructScrap: You deal 1d4 extra weapon damage on your next attack.
OozeBlob: You digest food in your stomach equal to half your Barbarian level.
PlantRooted: You may make a constitution save instead of the next dexterity save you’d normally have to make.
UndeadDeathly Resistance: You gain Temporary hit points equal to your Con Modifier.

Warrior of The Night

At 14th level, your vampiric abilities reach their peak, enhancing your powers in several ways.

  • Your Sanguine Bite damage die increases by a die step for each bulk limit you’ve exceeded, and can drain twice as much weight.
  • You treat each bulk limit as one lower for any penalties, meaning you have no penalties while Burdened. You also gain an additional Bulk limit equal to 4x your burdened bulk limit, this is the new point where you become immobilized from bulk.
  • In Dim light or Darkness, you have advantage on constitution and dexterity checks.

Bloodhunter Orders

Order of the Profane Soul

(Additional Content)

Below are additional Patrons, and their effects, for the Profane Soul Order.

Spirit of Indulgence

3rd: When you damage a creature with a weapon for which you have an active crimson rite, you may expend your bonus action on the same turn to feed them fatty food equal to half the damage done by the crimson rite.

7th: You can cast Narce's sympathy gain

15th: You can cast Madav’s Inertia

Druidic Circles

Circle of Aspect

The strength of a bear, the durability of a boar, there are many aspects of beasts that people have long sought to emulate. Druids have special connections to nature, and in turn those creatures, often taking on their shapes to make use of their particular skills. The Circle of the Aspect takes a slightly different approach however, by instead empowering themselves with the traits of animals they want to emulate instead of becoming them entirely. These Druids are known for how their way of taking on those aspects is extra energy intensive, considering their bodies were never meant to perform such feats. They’re always eating to build up energy for the next transformation.

Circle Spells

Your Animistic connection empowers your magic, giving access to some spells when you reach certain levels in this class, as shown on the Circle of Aspect Spells table.

Once you gain access to one of these spells, you always have it prepared, and it doesn't count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn't appear on the Druid Spell List, the spell is nonetheless a druid spell for you.

Invoke Aspect

Starting at 2nd level, you gain the ability to invoke animalistic aspects. You gain proficiency in eating. As an action, you can expend a use of your Wild Shape feature to take on the aspects of either a boar, bear, or wolf. This transformation does not turn you into an animal, and might instead manifest as glowing tattoos across your body, magical energy floating above your skin, a physical change in your form, or some other manner that displays your new animal aspects. This form lasts a number of minutes equal to your druid level, but can be dismissed early at any time during your turn.

When you enter your Aspect Form, you may convert diet points into temporary hit points, requiring two DP for each temporary HP, up to a maximum of 4 times your Druid level. These DP may come from your diet pool, or food currently still in your stomach, but this does not instantly digest that food. These temporary hit points only last as long as your Aspect Form does. Additionally you gain the following benefits, depending on which aspect you choose, while in your Aspect Form:

Boar. You may add a bonus to your AC equal to half your Wisdom Modifier rounded up, and have advantage on any saves or skill checks made against effects that would force you to move, knock you prone, or cause you to become grappled. Additionally, you may eat a number of pounds of food equal to your entire eating skill modifier when using the eating action instead of half.

Bear. You have advantage on checks made to grapple creatures, and gain a Claw attack (1d8 + wisdom mod melee weapon attack) that you can make an attack with as a bonus action. Additionally, your base stomach capacity is doubled.

Wolf. Your move speed is increased by 10ft, and you have advantage on perception checks. Additionally, you may expend your reaction when a creature within 5ft of you would eat food. You eat half of the food they otherwise would have eaten, with the creature still eating the remaining half.

Empowered Aspect

At 6th level, your connection to beasts gives extra strength to your Aspects. When you transform into your Aspect Form, you gain the following additional benefits, depending your chosen Aspect:

Boar. You may use your Wisdom score instead of your Constitution score for any saves, skill checks, or attacks you make. Also, you have resistance to overstuffing damage, and can continue to eat food that would do overstuffing damage to you as long as you eat food again every round. Once you fail to continue to eat, you cannot do this again until you are no longer overstuffed.

Bear. You may use your Wisdom score instead of your Strength score for any saves, skill checks, attacks, and damage. Also, you treat each bulk limit as one lower for any penalties, meaning you have no penalties while Burdened. You also gain an additional Bulk limit equal to 4x your burdened bulk limit, this is the new point where you become immobilized from bulk.

Wolf. You may use your Wisdom score instead of your Dexterity score for any saves, skill checks, attacks, damage, and for calculating AC. Additionally, you have advantage with attacks on any creatures that are made of food or are considered Edible.

Beastkin

At 10th level, your connection to beasts has made it so you are, at least in part, also one of them. You are considered a Beast, in addition to your other creature types. At any given time, you may choose which of your creature types you count as based on what is most convenient at the time, not counting as the others.

Additionally, while in your Aspect Form, you may use an action to convert any diet points into temporary HP at a rate of 2 DP to 1 Temp HP, in the same way you do when you first transform. If your current source of temporary HP is still your Aspect Form transformation, you may add these new temp HP to that total instead of replacing them, up to your normal maximum for the ability.

Mastered Aspects

On reaching 14th level, you’ve mastered the animal aspects you’ve studied to the point that you can use their most powerful changes. When you transform into your Aspect Form, you gain the following additional benefits, depending your chosen Aspect:

Boar. While you are over your regular stomach capacity, you are completely unaffected by any non-magical effect that would reduce your speed or force you to move, including your own bulk. Additionally, if you only move in a straight line during your turn and move at least 10 feet, you may force a creature within 5ft of where you stop moving to make a strength save against your spell save DC or be knocked prone. Using this ability then sets your speed to 0 for the rest of the turn.

Bear. While you are over your regular stomach capacity, you count as one size larger for all calculations aside from the stomach capacity. Anyone you have grappled who is of a size smaller than you is also considered restrained.

Wolf. While your stomach is completely empty, you may use your bonus action to make a bite attack against an adjacent creature with your spell attack modifier. This attack deals 1d6 + your druid level as damage on a hit. You consume a number of pounds of food equal to the damage dealt by the attack. You cannot use this again until your stomach is completely empty again.Additionally, you gain expertise in eating if you did not already have it. If you did, you may instead gain expertise in another skill you are already proficient in.

Circle of Bounty

While Druids are generally known for their desire to protect and preserve nature, there are some that take a more utilitarian approach, understanding nature’s role is to provide plenty to those who partake in it. In the Circle of Bounty, Druids focus on bringing forth as much bounty as possible from the world around them, and making sure that others benefit from that plentiful abundance, growing abundant themselves in turn.

Circle Spells

Your natural magic is tuned towards abundance and managing its consequences, giving access to some spells when you reach certain levels in this class, as shown on the Circle of Bounty Spells table.Once you gain access to one of these spells, you always have it prepared, and it doesn't count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn't appear on the Druid Spell List, the spell is nonetheless a druid spell for you.

Practiced Feasting

Starting at 2nd level, you have long practiced enjoying as much bountiful foodstuffs from nature as you can, giving you proficiency in the eating skill, and making it so you cannot roll below a 10 when rolling a stuffing check, treating anything less as a 10 on the die. This training in relaxed eating has even made it easier to handle going too far in your indulges, granting you resistance to all overstuffing damage.

Additionally, your magic infuses into all food that you touch, any food a creature eats that you’d fed them by hand or by spell is considered super fatty food, giving three diet points per pound, unless the food originally had more DP than 3. This also applies to food you feed yourself.

Assisted Stuffing

Also at 2nd Level, the gusto with which you show eating is infectious, and you can direct that gusto towards others. Any time a creature within 30ft of you makes a stuffing check, you may use your reaction to instead make the roll for them, using your own eating skill to make the check.You may use this ability a number of times equal to your proficiency modifier, regaining uses on a long rest.

Gifts of Indulgence

At 6th level, your ability to affect those who eat the bounty you create has grown even stronger. Whenever you cause a creature to make an overstuffing roll, you may choose one of the effects below to apply temporarily to them. Any effect you choose lasts until the creature completes a short or long rest, and cannot be targeted by this ability again until they complete a long rest. The effects you can choose are as follows:

  • The creature digests food at their digestion rate every round instead of every hour.
  • You may add your Wisdom modifier to their stomach capacity.
  • Force the creature to make a Charisma saving throw against your spell save DC. On a failure, they count as being a bulk limit higher than they actually are.
  • Force the creature to make a Constitution saving throw against your spell save DC. On a failure, you may use a bonus action each round to magically add food to their stomach equal to your Wisdom modifier. They repeat the save if this would cause them to take overstuffing damage.
  • The creature gains resistance to overstuffing damage.
  • The creature gains temporary hit points equal to your Druid level.
  • You may use this ability a number of times equal to your Wisdom Modifier, regaining expended uses on a long rest.

Grand Excess

Starting at 10th level, your gluttonous power to indulge has only grown stronger. You gain expertise in the eating skill if you did not already have it. In addition, you now add your wisdom score to your strength and constitution scores for determining your bulk limits.

Syrup Tendrils

Also at 10th level, you gain the ability to call forth the power of nature to feed your enemies in the form of a sentient mass of syrup sap filled vines. By expending one of your druid spell slots as an action, you can summon Syrup Tendrils in an unoccupied space within 60ft you can see. You concentrate on this effect as if it were a spell, and the Tendrils disappear when it drops to 0 hit points or if you stop concentrating.

The creature is an ally to you and your companions. In combat, the creature shares your initiative count, but it takes its turn immediately after yours. It obeys your verbal commands (no action required by you). If you don’t issue any, it takes the Dodge action and uses its move to avoid danger.

Any creature that the Syrup Tendrils feed counts as you feeding them for all of your abilities.

Special Sap. The Syrup Tendrils are filled with sap that’s very good at numbing a creature’s stomach, letting it cram more inside. Creatures that roll overstuffing because of the tendrils do so at advantage.

Actions

Multiattack. The Syrup Tendrils make a number of slam and feed attacks equal to half this spell’s level (rounded up).

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: your spell attack modifier to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: (1d6 + 5 + the slot’s level) bludgeoning damage. The Tendrils also make a grapple attempt if they hit.

Feed. The Syrup Tendrils stick a thick hose like end of a vine into a grappled creature's mouth and squirt super calorie rich sap down their throat. The grappled creature is force fed d4s of super fatty (3DP) food equal to half the slot level (rounded up.)

Circle of the Sylvan

Druids who feel the call to become part of the Circle of the Sylvan seek out a stronger connection to Fey, empowered by their connection to nature. The particular kinds of fey that call to you are those of self indulgent fairies that revel in the hedonism and gluttony of lipomancy. These druids are known for their own pranks and tricks that’d be on par with any of the Fey they are slowly beginning to resemble more and more. The most powerful often create their own courts of revelry where one could grow quite fat on nature’s bounty.

Circle Spells

Your connection to lipomantic and Sylvan magic mixes, giving access to some spells when you reach certain levels in this class, as shown on the Circle of the Sylvan Spells table.Once you gain access to one of these spells, you always have it prepared, and it doesn't count against the number of spells you can prepare each day. If you gain access to a spell that doesn't appear on the Druid Spell List, the spell is nonetheless a druid spell for you.

Touch of the Otherworld

At 2nd level, you’ve grown closer to understanding what it is to be one with the fairies. You learn to speak, read, and write Sylvan, as well as gaining proficiency in the Persuasion skill. In addition, your natural understanding makes it more difficult to muddle your mind. You have advantage on saving throws against any effect that would cause you to become charmed.

Charming Allure

Also at 2nd level, you learn to better make use of the fairy magic of manipulation. Whenever you cast a spell that would cause a creature to become charmed, and do not currently have another creature charmed by any means, you may do so as a bonus action. All rules for casting multiple spells in a turn still apply.You may use this ability a number of times equal to your charisma modifier, regaining uses on a long rest.

Fey Form

At 6th level, you gain the ability to harness the feywild to alter your form. As a bonus action, you can expend a use of your Wild Shape feature to take on a demi-fey form, rather than transforming into a beast, lasting 10 minutes per Druid level.

While in your demi-fey form, you retain your game statistics, but your body changes to reflect your change. These differences can be as simple as a changing of eye, skin, and hair color, or something more impactful like a shifting of body shape, plant-like material covering you instead of clothes, or other fairy-like features. You can revert to your normal form earlier by using a bonus action on your turn. You automatically revert if you fall unconscious, drop to 0 hit points, or die.

Whenever you assume your demi-fey form, you gain certain benefits, losing them when you revert to your normal form:

  • You may add your Charisma score to your strength and Constitution for calculating your bulk limits.
  • You may add your Charisma Modifier to your AC if you are not using a shield, and also add it to your stomach capacity.
  • You gain a set of fey wings, allowing you to fly at a speed equal to your move speed and hover.
  • You are considered Fey, in addition to your other types.
  • You may use your persuasion skill in place of your athletics skill when rolling to force feed a creature, and you also can choose to give a creature advantage on stuffing rolls that you have caused them to make.

In addition to these abilities, you may use an action to Tempt Hunger. When you do so, all creatures within 30 ft of you, aside from the ones you designate, must make a Charisma saving throw against your spell save DC. If they fail, they gain 1 temporary point of exhaustion until they spend an action eating food. A creature that fails more than once can not gain more than 1 point of exhaustion total from this ability. Success on the saving throw negates the effect and gives them immunity to it until they finish a long rest.

Widened Whimsey

Beginning at 10th level, you’ve learned to improve your demi-fey form by increasing your own size. When you assume your demi-fey form, you gain the additional benefits below for each bulk limit you were over before you transformed, in addition to only being considered Fey instead of your other types. They last for the duration of your transformation.

  • Burdened. Your softened form is even more alluring, and heavy. Your fleshy curves are better for trapping others, allowing you to use your Persuasion in place of athletics for grapple checks, and also allowing you to use Persuasion to escape grapple.
  • Impeded. It is known that larger fey are also more powerful, your grand size makes your magics even more powerful. When you target a creature with a spell or effect that would cause them to become charmed, you negate any resistance to magic or charms that they may have.
  • Immobilized. Your enormous size is as protective as it is powerful, giving you spell resistance, which provides advantage on any saving throws made against spells and magical effects.

Feast of the Feywilds

When you reach 14th level, you truly master your fey like magics. Your demi-fey form no longer has a time limit, your flight becomes magical and unaffected by your bulk limits, and while in that form any food consumed or created within 100 ft of you is affected by your rampant indulgent magic. This effect causes any creature that consumes food within 100 ft of you to instantly gain one pound of fat for each pound of food or drink they consume for any reason.

Additionally, you may expend a bonus action to empower the gluttony of a creature you have charmed or is affected by an enchantment spell you casted. They willingly eat any food you offer them for the next minute. Any spell attacks from you that cause the target to eat food (such as the feed spell) automatically hit the target, and the target automatically fails any saving throws on similar spells (such as the Overabundance spell). While under the effects of this magic, the target's stomach capacity is effectively infinite, and they cannot take damage from overeating. This ability cannot affect a creature that doesn’t have a stomach capacity.

You use this part of your ability a number of times equal to your charisma modifier, regaining uses on a long rest.

Roguish Archetypes

The Gravity Killer

In the realm of murder, assassination, and ‘unfortunate accidents’ there is one method that always has a special place. Falling from a balcony, plunging into a canyon, or simply a silent assailant dropping from above, gravity is a powerful weapon. The Gravity Killer is this idea taken to the extreme. Through a series of strange runes inscribed in tattoos and channeling inborn power, the rogue can use momentum as a weapon. Of course the way to have more momentum is to have more mass, meaning the Gravity Killer tends to be more than a little rotund. No one would say there’s anything soft about their landing on you, however.

Falling Forwards

Starting at 3rd level, by manipulating the direction gravity pulls you in, you become able to ‘fall’ as part of your movement to get around easier. Whenever you use your bonus action to dash, the additional movement can be in any direction you wish, even straight up. You ignore any difficult terrain while moving in this way. At the end of your turn, the effect ends and you fall if you’re still in the air. Dash movement used in this way is not reduced if your regular speed is, unless you are restrained or grappled. For example, if your 30ft speed is halved from being impeded, your dash would still be 30ft.Additionally, you do not take falling damage when falling up to your movement speed in feet.

Momentum Strike

Starting at 3rd level, you gain an additional way to use your sneak attack. If you move 15 feet towards a target before attacking them, you do not need advantage in order to use sneak attack, instead using your momentum to pull yourself towards the target. If you weigh more than the creature you are attacking in this way, you have advantage on the attack.Spatial Distortion

Starting at 9th level, your control of local gravity becomes stronger, allowing you to better move around with your foe-crushing weight. Your speed is not halved while impeded, and you are immune to difficult terrain. While Immobile, you move at half speed instead of not at all, though the other penalties still apply. Additionally, you may use your dexterity in place of your strength or Constitution in calculations for your bulk limits. This gravity based control over your movement also gives you advantage to resist and break grapples.

Weighty Slam

Starting at 9th level, you gain the ability to use your body as a weapon, performing a weighty slam. This attack counts as a melee weapon attack with which you are proficient and can use either dexterity or Strength to determine hit bonus and damage. The damage starts at 1d4 and increases 1d4 for each bulk limit you’ve exceeded. Attacks with this ability are not made with disadvantage from being over your bulk limits.

If you use Momentum Strike with this weapon, you do not need to move the required 15 feet. However, you do an additional 1d6 damage when using momentum strike this way for each 30ft you move towards the target this turn before attacking.

Drag In

Starting at 13th level, instead of going towards creatures, you can bring them to you. By using a bonus action, you can force a target you can see up to one size larger than you within 30ft to make a Strength Saving throw (DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Dexterity bonus), dragging them up to 30ft towards you on a failure. If you weigh more than the target, they have disadvantage on the save. This movement counts towards Weighty Slam’s extra damage. You may use this ability a number of times equal to your proficiency modifier until you complete a long rest.

Null Zone

Starting at 17th level, you are able to create a field of non-gravity as a standard action that radiates outwards in a 60ft radius from you. Within this area, gravity is effectively nullified, meaning creatures without a fly speed can move only by pushing or pulling against a fixed object or surface within reach (such as a wall or a ceiling), which allows it to move as if it were climbing. Objects are also left floating in this space. While your Null Zone is active, you gain a fly speed equal to your move speed that is unaffected by bulk. You have advantage on any attacks against creatures who do not have a fly speed in this space.

After one minute, the effect ends and anything still in the air falls if it would normally. You may use this ability once per long Rest.

The Helpless Fatty

It’s no secret that rogues lie, cheat, and use any means necessary to get what they want. For some, it’s about their public image. It’s easy to group people into categories and write them off. Helpless maidens, town guards, useless fatties. It’s easy to think these first impressions tell us everything we need to know. For some rogues, they play a game of two faces. Appearing as innocent, helpless, at the wrong place at the wrong time and sometimes it works. Capitalizing on their soft, seemingly useless fat forms, these rogues use concealed weapons to lure their opponents into a false sense of security.

Subtle Softness

When you adopt this subclass at level 3 you gain proficiency in the eating skill.Additionally, you may conceal weapons in the swells of your body. While over your first bulk limit, you may hide 1 weapon with the light property, or an item up to 2 pounds, on your person, using your fat to obscure it. If you are over your second bulk limit, then any check made to locate such objects or search for them by others is made with disadvantage. You may hide an additional item this way for each bulk limit over burdened you are.

Helplessly Fat

Also at 3rd level, you gain the ability to feign being overwhelmed by your bulk, such as being out of breath or being temporarily stuck, to stop appearing as a threat. As a bonus action, select one creature within 30 feet of you that can see you. Make a Charisma (Deception) check contested by their Wisdom(Insight) check. You must be over your first bulk limit.

If you succeed on the check and the target is hostile to you it gains disadvantage on any attacks directed at you and they can’t make any attacks of opportunity against you. This effect lasts for one minute or until you attack the target. You don't need advantage on the attack roll to use your Sneak Attack against this creature. All the other rules for Sneak Attack still apply to you.

If you succeed on the check and the target isn't already hostile to you, it regards you as seemingly harmless and no threat until you take hostile action against them. Any hostile action you take is made as if the creature is surprised by you, even if they know you’re there.

Suffocating Size

At 9th level, you’ve learned to take care of your enemies with your weight alone. If you are not already grappling a creature, you may use your action to ‘Flop’ onto an enemy that weighs less than half of your own weight. The target can make a strength saving throw (DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your constitution bonus + the amount of bulk limits you are over), avoiding your flop on a success (A creature makes this roll with disadvantage if surprised by you).

On a failure, the target is considered grappled, restrained, prone, and suffocating. Your speed is reduced to zero until you break the grapple. On subsequent turns, you may use your action to deal non-lethal bludgeoning damage to the creature equal to your sneak attack dice, plus an additional 1d6 for each bulk limit you are over. The creature is unable to make any sound that might alert someone while you are ‘Flopped’ on top of them.

Also, Your natural predisposition for being flabby has also made you better at handling it. You treat each bulk limit as one lower for any penalties, meaning you have no penalties while Burdened. You also gain an additional Bulk limit equal to 4x your burdened bulk limit, this is the new point where you become immobilized from bulk.

Tubby Trickster

At 13th level, you gain expertise in the eating skill if you did not already have it. Additionally, you gain the following benefits for each bulk limit you are over.

1st bulk limit: You have resistance to all overstuffing damage, and always roll overstuffing rolls with advantage.

2nd bulk limit: Instead of adding your Dexterity modifier to your AC, you may add your Constitution modifier, plus the amount of bulk limits you are over.

3rd bulk limit: You have advantage on any persuasion, deception, and intimidate checks against creatures that find you attractive for your size due to your impressive bulk, and on creatures that weigh less than half of what you do due to how bewildering your size is.

4th bulk limit: You are no longer restrained by your body, but your movement speed is set to 5ft.

Perfect Disguise

At 17th level, your ability to appear helpless due to your immense girth has been perfected. As long as you are over your second bulk limit, you do not need advantage or an adjacent ally to perform a sneak attack, since it’s always surprising how well you can strike. Additionally, your lardy body is perfect for absorbing blows, and you take half damage from any attack made by a creature that weighs less than half of what you do.

Also at 17th level, your pure descent into indulgence has given you a deep resilience to magic that would force it upon you. Any time a spell or ability would cause you to make a saving throw to avoid becoming ravenous, force you to eat food, or put food in your stomach, you may give yourself advantage on the saving throw. If you succeed, you may force the creature that used the spell or ability to make the same saving throw with disadvantage, causing them to take the effect if they fail. Once you use this part of the feature, you must complete a short or long rest before you can use it again.

Sorcerous Origins

The Adiposean Rewritten

This is a rewrite of the original Adiposean Sorcerer to bring it more in line with other subclasses, as well as make it slightly less heavy on daily number crunching. If it is used, it is intended to replace the original Adiposean sorcerer in its entirety, not in part.

Lipomantic Magic

Starting at 1st level, the unstable and rampant lipomancy within has gifted unusual powers, most of which ruin the waistlines of you, your foes and your unfortunate allies.

You learn additional spells when you reach certain levels in this class, as shown on the Adiposean Spells table. Each spell counts as a sorcerer spell for you, but it doesn’t count against the number of sorcerer spells you know. These spells can’t be replaced when you gain a level in this class.

Solid Body

At 1st level, your body has begun to adapt to this excess in order to take more blows and bear the impressive weight.You may calculate your AC using your dexterity modifier or constitution modifier, whichever is higher. You may also add twice your Sorcerer level to your strength and constitution when determining your bulk limits.

Arcane Replenishment

At 6th level, you have learned to draw upon your lipomantic nature to make your magic more efficient, though at a weighty cost. When you make use of a metamagic option, you may reduce the cost by 1 sorcery point and fatten a number of d10s equal to your proficiency bonus. You can use this ability a number of times equal to your charisma modifier, regaining spent uses on a long rest.

Lipomantic Wellspring

At 14th, your body’s lipomantic power has become more than just a rampant menace, it has so eagerly suffused you with a degree of control. The fatter you are, the more powerful you become!

Whenever you exceed a bulk limit, you gain the following benefits. Should your bulk go below such a limit, you lose that benefit until you increase your bulk above it once more.

Burdened: You may cast spells granted by your Origin of Adipose feature with Sorcery points at a ratio of 1 sorcery point per spell level.

Impeded: Your vast size gives you resistance to bludgeoning and force damage.

Immobile: When you would gain or lose weight for any reason, you may choose to magnify or weaken that effect. You can choose to either magnify, and have weight gained or lost be 10 times the amount it would have been. Or you can choose to weaken, and have the amount of weight gained or lost be 1/10th the amount it would have been.

Adiposean Ascension

At 18th level, your fat has become one with you, and a source of power that can keep you going even when you would otherwise fall. You Gain a magical flying speed equal to your regular movement speed, this speed cannot be reduced by being over your bulk limits. While flying in this way, you can make spell attacks without disadvantage from being restrained by your bulk.Additionally, when you would drop to 0 hit points, you can choose to convert your body fat directly into life force. You choose to lose an amount of bulk equal to up to 3 times your bulk limit. For each bulk limit worth of weight you lose, you regain 25 hit points and 3 sorcery points. Any creature within 10ft of you at the time must make a constitution saving throw against your spell save DC or gain an amount of bulk equal to your bulk limit. Once you use this ability this way, you cannot use it again until you have completed a long rest.

The Corruption Scion

Not all who draw their power from Lipomancy do so willingly, and not all do so from pure magic. The darker forms of Lipomancy that lead to hoggish descent into mindless gluttony are what marks the Corruption Scion. They’re a point at which that shadowy seductive power enters the world, making them the first victim of it. However, Corruptive Lipomancy is not without its benefits. Corruption Scions are uniquely able to handle the inevitable enormity that corruption brings them, and eventually even learn to master that dark power for their own ends. This power may be forced upon them, but eventually they will make it their own.

Corruptive Casting

You learn additional spells when you reach certain levels in this class, as shown on the Corruption Scion Spells table. Each spell counts as a sorcerer spell for you, but it doesn’t count against the number of sorcerer spells you know. These spells can’t be replaced when you gain a level in this class.

Corruption Scion Spells

1stModify Metabolism, Constrict Corpulence

9thImmobilize Monster

Body of Debauchery

Starting at 1st level, the corrupted power that flows through your body only truly awakens when your physical strength fails you. When you go over your immobility limit, you have a flying speed equal to your walking speed that is unaffected by your bulk. If you choose to fly this way, you must stay within 5 feet of the surface below your feet, but can hover indefinitely, rotating as you wish as if weightless and cannot be knocked prone. Additionally, while moving this way, attacks against you don’t have advantage due to you being restrained. You can use this ability as long as you are less than your first bulk limit over immobility, and you have a mild corruption.

At fourth level you can use this ability up to twice your bulk limit over immobility if you have a moderate corruption.

At eighth level you can use this ability up to three times your bulk limit over immobility if you have a Severe corruption.

At twelfth level you can use this ability up to four times your bulk limit over immobility if you have a severe corruption.

Rising Corruption

At 1st level, you are constantly in touch with the dark lipomancy within, whenever you finish a long rest and don’t have any points of corruption, you gain 1 point of corruption. When you finish a long or short rest, you gain an amount of temporary hit points equal to twice your points of corruption.

When you reach level two, you can spend 2 sorcery points to gain points of corruption up to half your proficiency modifier rounded up.

Dark Anchor

At level 6, your great mass is suffused with power, giving you greater resistance to arcane attacks. While your Body of Debauchery is active, you may spend your reaction in response to failing a save against a spell or magical effect to reroll the saving throw. When you use this ability, you gain 1 point of corruption, and gain an additional point of corruption when you use it again on the same day (meaning 3 corruption on the third use.) You can use this ability an amount of times equal to your proficiency modifier, regaining all uses on a long rest.

Controlled Chaos

Also when you reach level 6, you’ve begun to gain an understanding of the dark power within, giving you several ways to interact with your corruption. Over a long rest, you may reroll one corrupt effect you have for another of the same level. You also no longer suffer the behavioral effects of corruption, and can remove one point of corruption each time you take a long rest. Also, when using your Body of Debauchery feature, you are not considered restrained by your bulk.

Monument of Excess

At 18th level, your body becomes perfectly attuned to using corruption to overcome your physical weakness. Gaining the following features:

While using your Body of Debauchery feature, you do not experience any penalties for being over your bulk limits. Additionally, the amount of bulk you can have over your immobility threshold and use the ability changes to being an increment of your Bulk Limit for each point of corruption you possess, up to a maximum of 12 points and 12 times your bulk limit over your immobility threshold.

Whenever you’d cast a spell that causes a creature to gain bulk, you may maximize the effect, as if all dice had rolled their maximum value, but also fatten for the same amount as the target.

You count as a source of corruption, and anyone near you may gain points of corruption on a long rest. You may designate a number of creatures up to your charisma modifier to be safe from this effect.

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (27)

The Expedition Vanguard is full of people ready to explore the shattered lands, partake in the wonders of the town, and generally do their part to either help the settlement or live in this place they protect. Below is a list of key individuals within the Vanguard. Each is a player character used within the original West Marches game. Feel free to use these as inspiration or starting points for your own characters or npcs that would be right at home in the world of Argonath.

Adeline Wavecrest

Half-Elf Priestess of Civona (Cleric + Druid)

With the hope of a new safe haven for all reaching far and wide across Seantala, many of the wealthier and more powerful families sought to gain entry there as soon as possible. For Adeline, her spot on the vanguard was earned moreso because of her family's prestige, mixed with tragic circ*mstances of those whom she was supposed to joined by. Cast alone, feeling the pressure expectant glances, as well as the desire to regain the luxury she once had, would keep her going as she experienced what life was like when people had nothing but each other to rely on. Alongside her companions, Adeline's powers, as well as her wealth, would bloom once more as she sought to divine the chaotic nature of Argonath with the aid of the shining stars.

Adloth Snowshaper

Goliath, Armourer Artificer

Hailing from a budding city of brilliant minds, the settlement was unravelled by a chaotic disruption of gravity, forcing the citizens and Adloth abandon much of their work and dreams. The goliath still holds onto her aspirations however, putting her mind towards tinkering and experimenting on her new suit of armour for the tough times ahead. Intelligent and determined, if a touch quiet in social situations, there's no question that Adloth is devoted to building up Argonath into her new home. Determination or not though, she's an artificer first, and only a warrior by necessity. Leaving her inexperienced and shaky in dangerous combat.

Alei Oak

Fatspawn Wild Walker Ranger/Pugilist

Running from herself, half-human, half-gnoll, Alei joined the vanguard as somewhat of a last gambit. She did genuinely want to help people, almost everyone she met, but never ceasing hunger and conflicting instincts and emotions led her to a lot of turmoil. She made friends in Argonath, and even found a lover in the diminutive kobold Spirit Seeker, and left the vanguard shortly before its end to fix her mistakes on the other side, before they were unfixable.

She still has a ways to go before she fully accepts who and what she is, but she's at least a lot more comfortable with busting belts than she was when she was first hit by the Feast Swarm. Just needs to reign in some of the overindulgence...

Amalthea Olympia

Satyr Cleric of Civona, Hedonism Domain

Among the first batch of the Vanguard project, she escaped from the Feast Swarm that assaulted Pelldea to help pave the road for a feat that would make Civona proud, the development of Holmgard, a city in a new land. The satyr favored indulgence from the day she arrived, and she was a ever helpful, using the gift of Civona for even the most basic of tasks if it would aid the rest of the city. She was always a lover at heart, getting close to a few fellow Vanguard members, but never committing to anyone other than her darling Klea, as well as Euryaeia, the one who didn't make it through the portal.

Crodexstasya

Human Wizard, Bladesinger

A cowardly wizard who hid from the feast swarm. Developing very mixed feelings along the way. Among the first of the Vanguard, She did her best to rise to the occasion, and triumph over her fears and doubts. Deeply Devoutful of Dragons, she was extremely conflicted when the vanguard slain their first. She eventually fell back on old habits, before disappearing entirely.

Cynteiya, of Xipilli

Ticolatta School of Lipomancy Wizard

Cynteiya was much of a typical self-ascribed wizard: bright, eclectic, and eccentric. She had a passion for discovery and an apparent inability to express herself in any way that wasn’t grossly complex, even as she would often explain her passion to any who would listen. After an unending tide of shambling dead brought her home low, she joined the Vanguard not just to continue her study of magic, but to use what she learned in service of those who were left.

Imaren Amalgard

Orc Paladin, Oath of Protection

An optimistic woman with a heart of gold, Imaren was sent from her frozen home as a newly appointed member of her order to be a representative for the Vanguard. Born of a lineage of templars, she grappled with living up to the expectations and hopes of her home and family, along with the newfound weight and magics that altered her frame, but gave her the opportunity to be a bulky bulwark. Standing vigilant through the ever changing times of the camp into a formed haven for those who sought it, Imaren has kept moving forward with those at her side, including love in the form of the wizard Lorekeeper, and a fire inside her to find her answer of what truly made someone a guardian.

Joana Jove

Aasimar Monk, Way of the Myo-Oni

Jo came later than others into the Vanguard, and always made it clear to everyone she met that she did not like the heroic adventurer lifestyle almost as often as she derided the gods. Having been a hermit for a good few years before the world began to loosen its hold on those who lived in it, Jo often found the perfect way to aggravate and annoy her fellow Vanguard. Nevertheless, she was always willing to help in whatever way was needed, and was quite eager to take on the burdens of others. She fully intends to set out to find Rakatak as well, if only to knock some sense into the Hobgoblin.

Kareena Brightweaver

Human, Squared Circle Pugilist

A survivor of a hearty desert civilization on Seantala, and the sweltering heat that buried it beneath the sands, Kareena was one of the first to find her way to Argonath. She wanted to be a hero, do something that would benefit everyone she cared about back home. She was a fighter, first and foremost, and had ample opportunity to put those skills to use during her time in the Vanguard. The wiles of Argonath were not lost on her though, the once rail thin pugilist finding her 'new normal' to be much, much heavier.

Klea Goldenpride

Leonin, Gluttiator Fighter

Klea was a slave-born gladiator who left behind a grand empire brought low by rampant creatures of lipomancy. Though she was initially befuddled by her expanded figure, something the lands of Argonath did little to help, she soon developed and mastered a fighting style that used her growing girth to her advantage. A proud and eager woman who refused to be last in love or combat, she soon made quite a name for herself among the Vanguard. These days, she trains the fatter members of the militia in her style and has settled down with her long-time companion and lover, Amalthea.

Magda Barrelgut

Dwarven Chronugist and Cleric of Civona

A brewer by trade before the end of the world, Magda joined the Vanguard to forge a new home for her people. The heavily armored arcanist had faith that Holmgard, built by the final efforts of the old world united, would be the most magnificent city ever known. She found fast friends and companions among the Vanguard, and took pride and joy in their work and the wonders of their new patchwork plane. Magda’s greatest accomplishment in service to the expedition was delving the deepest depths of the cursed crypt with the Vanguard’s finest, where the dread shade of Emperor Valderban was felled by her hand.

Miniki Nimbledigits

Gnome Bladesinger Wizard

The self proclaimed Hero of Holmgard had many ups and downs in her time as the Vanguard. Eventually, she settled into more of an analytical role, surveying areas the team would explore through magic and her random knowledge from her studies. While not the most socially aware, she can adjust after a rough personal period and will do her best to keep the team alive.

Moraena Evenstar

Half-Elf Oath of Vengance Paladin

Moraena was a half-elf drow survived a wintry apocalypse only to be thrust into a harsh new reality. She had arrived in Argonath seeking a new start and a new life. She carried many of the ambitions and burdens from her past life only to find the new world far different than she could have imagined. A year came and went that saw many battles and close calls and still, she could not believe that she was still alive. The new world was more than just a new war or a new struggle. It had grown from an outpost on a battlefield to a new and proper home for the warrior to protect.

Rakatak First-Among-All

Hobgoblin Oath of Conquest Paladin

Rakatak arrived in Holmgard with the belief that the new world needed evil just as much as everything else, and managed to be proven right at some turns - while sternly disproven at others. She malingered in camp, marauded outside of it, and found her faith in the form of worship to Bane and the religiosity of war. As the need of the Vanguard drew to a close, Rakatak looked outwards in a more serious sense, leaving the town to continue to grow without the stifling presence of something truly evil to worry about in its mist.

Rhulie Meinir

Kobold Fighter, Lipomantic Rune Knight

Proud, out-going, and generally out-spoken she is as much a adventurer as she is a runesmith and blacksmith, with a great interest in rare magical items and materials, which she hopes to use to replicate the power held by sorcerers and spellcasters, both of which she harbors jealousy towards. She ran away from her tribe in her youth due to it having a extreme amount of sorcerers before meeting up with the Order of the Wyvern Hammer, who depleted due to the arcane vortex and the attrition of adventuring leading her to seek shelter in Angroath, where she hopes to continue her old companions legacy.

Serchaff Ostvengr

Kobold, Artillerist Artificer

Serchaff was one of the newer members, a fresh recruit for the vanguard. Originally a conscript for a dragon's army, when the world fell into ruin, the Undead Scourge forced him and his comrades into an unwinnable battle. Their own dragon fled, leaving them all to die. Serchaff escaped, but in the coming weeks had to fight his undead comrades, needing to put his best friend Markios to rest with his own hands. He carries the Ruby Guard’s memory onward into Argonath, honoring them by continuing to fight.

Siversa

Human Battle Dancer Bard, Storm Sorcerer

A ever energetic and optimistic bard with some issues of emotional immaturity. Becoming infatuated with the melody only she could hear within the Aether Vortex, Siversa had became deadset on practicing her music to one day replicate the music she had heard within the mighty storm. Among the first wave of the vanguard, she had done her best to bring cheer and optimism wherever she went. Supporting the colonization efforts however she could through her magic.

Sola Ta'hato

Veggian Bounty Druid

A plucky lady from far off lands, hailing from a race of plant like people, hidden in deep woods. She turned to heroism as the drought of unending suns approached, joining a militia to assist those in need and aiding in their refuge towards safer lands. Once she had made her way to the portal, she was selected to go across, aiding those of the Vanguard in their ventures further into the Shattered Lands.

Spirit Seeker

Kobold Druid, Circle of Spores

A peculiar and mischevious kobold who specializes in necromancy, poisoncraft, and alchemy. Spirit escaped from the oppression of a dragon in the midst of the undead scourge and joined the Vanguard mostly due to her brother Ego Boaster's support and desire to ensure she was safe from the apocalypses. Once on the other side of the portal, she struggled heavily at first with the separation and fitting in to a new society, but in time managed to adjust and come out for the better, especially with the help of her lover Alei Oak and others. She spends a portion of each day waiting by the portal, eager to reunite with Alei and her brother someday.

Sunue Berri

Human Fighter, Battlemaster

A Cheery odd-ball of a human, having drifted into the vanguard. She faces the past, present, and future with a distant terrifying smile. Having fought her whole life in the search of understanding, the Vanguard finally gave her her answer. Now, she patiently waits for someone, ready to give her response.

Thorhak Bearheart

Goliath, Oath of Protection Paladin

Hailing from the far away land of Arlath, a small tribe of Goliaths nestled at the top of the snowy peaks of Seantala, the kind, loveable, and somewhat dense Thorhak Bearheart came to Argonath to find new land for him and his people after being displaced by the burning sun that had melted his icy home. However, what he had found here in Holmgard was a new home entirely. Filled with friends, lovers, and more people he could call his family. While many have left him and Holmgard, he has renewed his oath, and vowed to grow into the protector that Homlgard not only needs, but deserves.

definitely didn't write this two weeks ago and forget to post it that would be wild who would do that

Verdance

Half-fey Circle of the Sylvan Druid

Lady Verdance, Daughter of the Endless Spring, was somewhat of an Other when considered alongside the rest of a Vanguard comprised of mostly 20-something novice adventurers. And though the six-century-old archfey-in-training did build deep connections with some of the Vanguard, in the end as her powers grew Verdance found herself growing distant from her new comrades, drawn away from the burgeoning bastion of civilization and into the wilds beyond. For now, she dwells with her wife Zhaska in the Arborium, though one can never say when a watchful raven overhead might instead be the Daughter of the Endless Spring keeping an eye on her errant flock.

Vindr Talsbreath

Air Genasi Paladin of Cukin

The lone survivor of her brother's ill-fated march towards the gate through a tidal wave of undead, Vindr did her best to live up to his sacrifice. She sunk herself into being "worthy" of that sacrifice, devoting herself to full-time work in the kitchen, finding comfort in the familiar routine of cooking from her time as a chef/mess officer on the other side of the portal. Wracked with guilt and doubt,she found herself struggling accepting her new role as her brother's living legacy, his and his friends' hopes for the future now resting on her shoulders as Holmgard shakily got to its feet around her. In time however, and with the help of her partner Luxury, Vindr accepted her place within Holmgard as the head chef of its tavern, giving comfort to the people of Holmgard and offering them a slice of normalcy in the new world.

Zhaska

Yuan-Ticolatta Fleshbound Guardian

Sensual and Sultry, No other member of the vanguard can claim to have achieved the sheer amount of shenanigans that Zhaska has. Arriving in holmgard after the destruction of her home, Zhaska claimed to be looking for a new family. Whether she was or wasn't, she found it in holmgard, meeting many friends and her fair share of enemies. Through her time as the ubiquitous snake with unique fleshcrafting powers, she forged a lifelong bond with her wife, Verdance, and also successfully courted Lady Pendula. With two massive fey wives, one could definitely argue she has a type. No longer a member of Holmgard in any regular sense, Zhaska lives out her days in the arborium, surrounded by her kind of debauchery.

Adjusting Chair

Wondrous Item, Uncommon

This very plushily padded magic sofa chair weighs 30lbs. It doesn't initially appear to have any magical attributes, but some of increased girth may discover that it is able to automatically adjust its strength and size for a user. This chair is able to support the weight of a medium creature, no matter how much they weigh, adjusting the width of the seat as needed if they're particularly wide. The chair breaks if a large sized creature tries to use it, or if a medium sized creature becomes large while sitting in it.

Anti-Meal Potion

Wondrous Item, Common

This chalky tasting potion is light green and translucent in color. Consuming the potion only has an effect if you currently have food in your stomach or Diet Points in your Diet Pool.

Ayr's Divine Rice Pudding

Food Item, Uncommon

"This pudding is made up of glutinous rice, full fat milk and a pinch of nutmeg that is served hot. Some claim a proper pudding needs Ayr’s blessing or simply be blessed enough by the one making it. This pudding provides one serving (1 pound each) that counts as fatty food.

For one hour after consuming this pudding, you gain resistance to cold damage and gain cow-like features such as cow horns, a tail, floppy ears and perhaps a very subtle moo to your vocals. These features are cosmetic and fade after the hour ends.

Bands of Swelling Sympathy

Wondrous item, rare, requires attunement

This pair of rings can be anywhere in quality from ornate wedding bands to a couple of simple bronze circles, but always have two consistent features: they are physically identical, with any design on one of them being mirrored in the other, and they both have a light blue gem.

Attuning to one of the rings, by itself, does nothing. When two individuals attune to the rings, wear them, and are on the same plane of existence, they are considered to be under the effects of the Asha’s Sympathy Swell spell until taken off or unattuned.

Bastard's Axe

Weapon, uncommon, requires attunement

While attuned to this brutish looking +1 Battleaxe, you can pull or compress the shaft to change it into a Greataxe or back again. This counts as an object interaction.

Belly belt

Wondrous Item, Common

This cursed belt is impossible to remove once put on unless a spell such as remove curse is cast on you. Unlike most belts, this decorative gold colored belt is intended to go around the "small" of your waist instead of at your hips. While wearing this belt, any bulk you gain that'd be less than five pounds instead becomes five pounds. The belt snaps if you gain enough bulk to go over a bulk limit, losing its power completely.

Belly Wheel

Wondrous Item, Common

Sometimes, it can be a real pain to move around when you're swaddled in softness. You can place this strong wheel attached to a shaft and cushion under your belly roll, or other ponderous body part hanging towards the ground, supporting it from below. If your speed is reduced due to your bulk, this wheel gives you an additional 5ft of movement that is not reduced. This additional movement cannot cause your movement to go over your regular speed, and only functions if the wheel is touching the ground, so would not work in situations such as jumping, flying, or swimming. The wheel can't help you if you're immobile.

Blessed Lacticite Weapon

Any Metal Weapon, Uncommon, Requires Attunement

A weapon made with the duo-toned metal known as Lacitcite. This one’s glow is intense, as is the method of creation. Bond with it.

While attuned to this weapon, when it hits a creature, it deals an additional 1d6 cold damage. If it hits a humanoid creature, it causes the creature to lactate the cold damage in pints of milk, stored within its chest. Additionally, while attuned to this weapon you are considered lactating. If you remain attuned to the weapon for more than a week, you develop cosmetic traits akin to that of an authumbla such as cow like horns, ears, tail or any other features determined by the DM. If the attunement lasts more than a month, these cosmetic features are permanent unless removed by a lesser restoration spell or similar effect.

Candy Cane Sword

Weapon, Rare, Requires Attunement

A +1 longsword with a swirling pattern reminiscent of an elegantly crafted Candy Cane which hums with Lipomantic energies. While attuned to it, the longsword has 4 charges. Whenever you hit a creature with an attack with this weapon, you can forgo the damage dealt by the blade, and instead force feed the target an amount equal to half the weapon damage dealt with pounds of fatty food. After expending the final charge, the weapon is reduced to a shortsword.

Each dawn, it regains all expended charge, and becomes a Longsword again if it isn’t already.

Clothes of Corpulent Constraint

Wondrous Item, Common

"These magical clothes are often extremely revealing or skimpy in design. As with all magical clothing, they appear to be able to grow with the user, though never quite as much as they should. While initially fitting at whatever weight a creature puts them on at, the clothes become tight and tighter as the creature grows. At the point that mundane clothes would break, these clothes instead restrain the user with their tightness and unbreaking nature, showing every bulging inch, until someone else removes them over the course of a minute.

Curse. Initially appearing to be clothes of mending, once put on, the clothes don’t allow the wearer to remove them. They can only be removed by someone else, or by a remove curse spell."

Deployable Shield

Shield, Common, Requires attunement

While attuned to this shield and wearing the bracelet, you may use a bonus action to deploy the shield to full size from the bracelet. You may use another bonus action to return the shield to bracelet size again.

Eternal Cupcake

Food Item, Common

This delicious giant cupcake is either chocolate, vanilla, or spice frosted and flavored, worth 2lbs of fatty food. Due to the wonders of food magic, it never goes bad, and can regenerate after eating.

Each time this happens, there is a 5% chance that the cupcake does not regenerate, and is effectively destroyed.

Fat Pants

Wondrous Item, Common

This pair of stretchy grey pants are made of a very comfortable material, but cannot be worn with armor. While wearing the pants, you have advantage on eating checks made to overstuff, and constitution saves made to try to permanently increase your capacity if your current capacity is less than 20.

Glutton's Dinner Bell

Wondrous Item, Common

This Golden Bell is covered in designs of figures reclining with full tummies. Once per day, a creature can ring the bell, calling all creatures within 120 ft of you to a meal. For the next minute, the next eating check made for the purposes of overstuffing by each creature who heard the bell ring within its range is made at advantage. After using this item in this way, it can be used again until the next breakfast (Dawn).

Headdress of Horns

Wondrous Item, Uncommon, Requires Attunement

Wondrous Item, Major, Uncommon (Requires attunement by a permanently lactating humanoid)

This headdress, adorned with fine tribal cloth and a set of highly prized faux cow horns. The Yesun Milk Tenders often wear such headdresses for the purpose of carrying out rituals but often wear it in the rare times of combat. They are often able to carry more milk as a result.

Heavy Hip Belt

Wondrous Item, Common, Requires Attunement

These "loose" belts can have varying designs, with fringes of cloth covered in hanging coins, or small decorative plates sewn to leather, and anything in between. While attuned to the belt, your hips are empowered to really pack a punch, allowing you to make melee attacks with them, which are magical. These attacks deal bludgeoning damage with a range of 5ft. The damage is d4, but increases to a d6, d8, or d10 for each Bulk limit you're over.

Horn of Honey

Wondrous Item, Common

This Gold decorated drinking horn is capped in a fine leather top that holds in the drink. That drink is of course Mead, brewed in the land of Fey, and enchanted to be ever filling. Each day at dawn, the Horn refills, holding 5 pints of drink despite its size. As a bonus action, a creature can drink a pint from the horn, which restores 2 hitpoint.

Drinking all five in the same hour is a lot of alcohol, and requires a DC 13 Constitution save to avoid gaining the poisoned condition from drunkenness until you complete a short rest.

While horns created this way can vary in flavor, the usual is a brew that is laced with heavy cinnamon, nutmeg, and warm apple flavors, added to the sweetened honey mead to create a spiced profile.

How to Cook, and Why You Should Add Sugar

Wondrous Item, Common

This magical cooking guide contains wonderful text about how to prepare several different kinds of meals. For some reason or another it always insists on sweetening the dishes no matter what. By referencing this book while cooking, you can prepare slimming food and ingredients into normal food, or prepare normal food and ingredients into fattening food.

When poured into a tub or similar body of water that is smaller than 250 cubic feet, the liquid is suffused with a relaxing energy and scent. Up to two medium or smaller creatures, or a single large creature, that bathes in this water finds their size less burdensome for a limited time. For each ten minutes spent in the bath, a creature temporarily is able to ignore 50lbs of bulk in relation to surpassing their bulk limits. 1 hour after being poured, the oil in the water loses potency, making that the same limit of time a creature can benefit from soaking. This temporary bulk increase lasts until the next time the creature takes a long rest.

Pan of Attraction

Wondrous Item, Ccommon

This baking sheet is magically enchanted to take the smells of fresh baking strong and long lasting. The smell of anything baking on this sheet is twice as powerful and good smelling as it should be, and the smell lingers from the pan itself for one week after baking unless used to bake something else. For example, cooking Cinnamon rolls on this won't just smell good, but leave your whole house and kitchen smelling of it for the week after. You have advantage on persuasion checks made to have someone eat something made on the pan that's still on it when you make the check.

Platemail of Compassion

Armor, rare, requires attunement

While attuned to this Rose and gold decorated +1 Platemail, your compassion for your comrades can empower your magic. Whenever you are concentrating on an effect or spell effecting an ally, but not yourself, you have advantage on any rolls made to maintain concentration.

Piggie Mark

Wondrous Item, Common, Requires Attunement

"Produced by a special needle, this magic tattoo appears on your body as a depiction of a pig or boar. While attuned to this tattoo, your eating actions consume an amount of pounds equal to your entire eating skill instead of halve of your eating skill. This means that using your action and bonus action to take the eating skill would allow you to eat a number of pounds of food equal to twice your eating skill.

Tattoo Attunement. To attune to this item, you hold the needle to your skin where you want the tattoo to appear, pressing the needle there throughout the attunement process. When the attunement is complete, the needle turns into the ink that becomes the tattoo, which appears on the skin. If your attunement to the tattoo ends, the tattoo vanishes, and the needle reappears in your space."

Ring of Contained Corruption

Wondrous Item, Common

While wearing this black metal ring, you feel a very small perversion of your thoughts. It does nothing on its own, but it does feel as though further magic effecting your thoughts might not be so bad. Any time you roll to gain a corruption effect, you may choose to reroll and gain a new effect, though you must take that one.

Rubber Bands

Wondrous Item, Common, Requires Attunement

While attuned to this pair of rubbery bracers, they are able to impart their qualities to any suit of armor or clothing you're currently wearing, giving it the Elastic quality.

Snack Pack

Wondrous Item, Uncommon

A small pack one ties around the waist which holds a magical extra dimensional space. Within this space is a great variety of delicious foods, fresh and ready to be eaten. The Snack Pack holds 20 lbs of fatty food, and regains any food expended at dawn. A creature can use this as a source of food for their force feed action or their own eating Action or Bonus action. Any food removed from the pack disappears after a minute unless eaten. The pack weighs 2 lbs.

Spoon of Anti-diet

Wondrous Item, Common

A literal silver spoon touched by lipomancy. Any food eaten with this spoon becomes fatty food if it wasn't already. This has no effect on food that already has more than 2 diet points per pound.

Stockings of Sumptuous Squishing

Wondrous Item, Uncommon, Requires Attunement

This pair of stockings comes in a variety of styles and designs, but all pretty much reach the thighs and cause an arousing amount of skindentation where thigh and fabric meet. Balance and grace seem almost natural while wearing these, even for the most obese of people.

While you wear these stockings and are attuned to them, you gain the following benefits:

  • You do not suffer disadvantage on Acrobatics skill checks and Dexterity saving throws when Impeded by your bulk.
  • Your steps make no sound, no matter what surface you are on.
  • Whenever you gain bulk in any way, you proportionally gain most of it in your thighs, hips and buttocks.

Swellshade Glasses

Wondrous Item, Rare, Requires Attunement

A pair of spectacles that are tinted through some impressive magic. Drow love them, Kobolds look stylish in them but it seems that they have some minor side effects. Hope you don’t mind splitting some seams.

While attuned and wearing these spectacles, you no longer suffer from Sunlight Sensitivity and have resistance to radiant damage. However, whenever you would take radiant damage, you fatten for four times the amount of damage you would have been dealt before resistance.

Token of Whale Growth

Wonderous Item, Uncommon (Requires Attunement)

An amulet of sea glass in the shape of a whale inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl. When you attune to this amulet, and for each day you remained attuned to it, you fatten equal to your character level. While attuned, remaining in a body of water great enough to be fully submerged for at least one round transforms you. You gain a swim speed equal to your movement speed, which is not reduced by bulk, can breathe underwater, and you fatten equal to your bulk limit as the amulet attunes you to the power of the mighty whale. These bonuses, and the added weight, vanish when you leave the water for at least one full round.

Vitro-glass Lens

Wondrous Item, Common

A circular, flattened fragment of vitro-glass, a specific form of refined voxturite. Too delicate and unstable to be manufactured without special equipment. Looking through it makes any creature at the other side visibly appear as if they were above their next bulk limit. This effect does not apply if the creature is immobilized. If they’re wearing any clothes, their attire conforms to their size.

Wand of Rubs

Wondrous Item, Common

This can be used at will to cast a specialized mage hand spell that is only able to apply pressure to bodies. This spectral hand is not enough to lift anything, but is enough to be felt rather strongly by people it is used on. The wand has three charges. By expending one of the charges and using the want to rub a willing creature's belly for 10 minutes, you can cause them to digest food in their stomach as if 1d4 hours had passed. The wand gains expended charges at dawn.

Yesun Churn Bag

Wondrous Item, Common

A 3lbs leather bag stitched together from the hides of local oxen or yaks after having been blessed by Khan Sina’s milk during a ritual. The bag can safely store milk without leakage and in return, said milk is converted into a very creamy butter or yogurt

The bag can hold up to 10 pints of milk, converting it into 10 lbs of the same quality of butter or yogurt over the course of one hour. Butter or yogurt within the bag stays fresh for up to ten days. The bag can produce up to 10 lbs of butter or yogurt each day before it recharges upon the next dawn.

Yesun Herder’s Crook.

Wondrous Item, Common, Requires Attunement

Quarterstaff

A simple item in appearance, often used by Herders to keep their flock in check and in some situations, pull stranded or stuck livestock to safety. The same can, often hilariously be done to friends.Once per day as an action, you may move a willing ally that is still within 10 ft of you up to 10 ft in any direction. Once used, you must complete a long rest to use this feature again.

Yesun Warding Tattoo

Wondrous Item, Common

A cream-hued pattern that swirls endlessly. It seems to faintly glow at times, pulsing with the beat of the one who wears it. It was made in order to defend against the mind-affecting spells of the Vanguard. Oddly enough, the Temujin seem to have begun wearing them.

Yesun Gift. While attuned to this tattoo, you are considered lactating.

Milk Mind. As a reaction while making a saving throw against the charmed or frightened condition, you may choose to reroll the die and must accept the new roll. No matter if you succeed or fail, you lactate a number of pints of milk equal to your Engorged milk limit. This lactation costs no diet points. Once you have used this reaction, you cannot use it again until the next dawn.

Tattoo Attunement. To attune to this item, you hold the needle to your skin where you want the tattoo to appear, pressing the needle there throughout the attunement process. When the attunement is complete, the needle turns into the ink that becomes the tattoo, which appears on the skin.

If your attunement to the tattoo ends, the tattoo vanishes, and the needle reappears in your space.

The Shattered Lands

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (41)

Built around the stabilized portal, this fortified camp serves as the base of operations for the Expeditionary forces and home to the player characters. It’s here that you rest between missions, carousing with your comrades, and spend your time improving your skills. It’s also the settlement that, over time, will grow into a grand new home for all the displaced peoples of Seantala. It’s not much to look at starting out, but over time the small tent city will include new homes, shops, and even grand magical buildings all created through your combined efforts.

Cosmopolitan

When the whole world ends, the whole world comes together. The various peoples and nations that made up Seantala before the apocalypses came found themselves forced into close proximity and cooperation with one another just to survive. Those that didn't band together were almost always lost soon after. That has led to the refugees that are settling and running Holmgard being of no particular race or culture, instead featuring all of them. Orcs live right next to halflings, while dwarves work alongside Goliaths. Warriors from the marauding hordes of the steps share dinner with peasants from the city states along the coast. Whatever one's origins, the Expedition, along with the Vanguard within it, come from all walks of life and while all sorts of powers and origins.

Utilitarian

The Expedition that has founded Holmgard is working on low resources and slapped together logistics. This means, especially at first, Holmgard is more like a military camp running on shoe strings instead of a growing settlement. There's little in the way of simple comforts at first. There's no room for anyone to be particularly rich, nor for anyone to simply sit on their nobility and not work. That said, there is an economy here. While necessities are taken care of, anything else has to come at a cost. With so much power and wealth from the remnants of various nations thrown behind the expedition, gold and other coinage is still used, just for the simplicity of helping control where goods and services are flowing more than to help anyone gain wealth. Getting paid fairly and almost completely evenly is definitely important to the Expedition.

Hope

No one expected the plan to open a portal to a new world to work, yet there it is, glowing and gleaming with a promise of salvation. This light in the darkness, hope where there'd been hopelessness, defines much of the changing culture and mentality of the citizens and refugees of holmgard. While it could be easy to feel the weight of the apocalypse crushing those who have lived through it, the peoples of Seantala have already been through that dark night. While Arriving on Holmgard does not undo all wounds, it is a great balm, and helps strengthen the resolve to deal with what's still ahead. Generally speaking, Holmgard is a hopeful, happy, and even optimistic place.

Lipomancy and Size

When the people of Seantala first stepped through the portal onto the strange shattered lands of Argonath, their experiences with lipomancy were rare. Mostly those that survived the feast swarms knew of it, and even then it was sparingly. Few were able to still walk to escape that apocalypse, and fewer still had wanted to. So it's a relatively ignorant society that is beginning here in terms of fat magic and their feelings on... particular size. However, it's not as if heavy individuals are unheard of, nor are the survivors of the feast swarm unknown. Foolish is the individual that looks down on someone for a waddle unless it hinders their work.

That said, Lipomancy runs a bit rampant in the shattered lands, as Holmgard will soon learn. Many may find their waistlines expanding and clothes straining before too long. It's not bad though. Since this isn't an apocalyptic deluge of fattening magic, the benefits will quickly become clear to the settlement. Food grows in abundance in the presence of lipomancy, and the magic itself can provide ways to win conflicts without bloodshed. Of course, it turns out extra weight can have its own kind of magic, as some individuals find themselves in possession of powers fueled by such.

Also lest it be forgotten, it turns out being fat can be quite hot.

Center of Camp

The Center of Holmgard is a vast tent city of temporary structures. Sprawling over muddy, well trodden paths, recently felled trees, and every piece of available flat space, this is more massive camp than new settlement. It's crowded, with hundreds of individuals with every kind of clothing, race, and appearance. Dragonborns rub shoulders with Goliaths while gnomes help goblins to put up a pavilion, the refugees of a hundred nations. All are here in this new place with little else but hope and resolve. There are no outsiders among strangers.

In the very center of this camp is a massive archway twenty feet wide and thirty tall, a gleaming multicolored shimmering field of magic filling its center. It's the portal from Seantala, your doomed homeworld. It's through here you arrived in Argonath, and it's through there that all supplies currently flood through near constantly to support this expedition. Nearby to the portal are several already constructed open side pavilions with overworked and tired looking clerks sitting at sturdy wooden tables covered in paperwork. Long lines of new arrivals stretch away, waiting to be processed and noted. Skills, combat ability, experience, everything is written down that could be an asset to the expedition. For now, only those able to earn their keep will be allowed to stay.

Some shrines have found their way over from Seantala, set up in a haphazard row with space between them to let each have their own small supplicants gather. It's no cathedral, but Holmgard seems to have brought their gods with them. Serving as a strong contrast to this holy devotion, a large area nearby has remained clear of tents, looking to be some kind of practice Yard.

What doctors and low ranking clerics that are already here are available for those that need them.

Town Logistics

This particular part of camp is clustered with larger tents and some wooden temporary structures. Mostly they're just large roofs over the ground to provide shelter from rain for their contents. That tended to be heavy crates, barrels of water and salt pork, sacks of grain, and any number of other packaged up supplies. These pavilions are the backbone of provisions that keeps Holmgard running, looked over faithfully by numerous busy clerks and bean counters. They tend to try to keep people out of the way unless they've a good reason to be here.

This is also where the few bits of maintenance and repair crews have come through, with overcrowded tents with small anvils, tiny furnaces, and numerous craftspeople overworked in trying to repair armor, mend leathers, sharpen swords, or simply keep someone's boots together a day longer. The wear and tear is as hard on the people working in those roles as it is on the gear itself.

Repairing gear, the few things available, they're all here.

Shore Line

The northern part of Holmgard flattens out into a rough and short beach of sandy dirt and pebbly rocks. The coast stretching off in either direction is relatively even and uncluttered by much more than driftwood. Lazy slow waves with small foamy crests slide up the shore in a consistent rhyme. There's no tides in Argonath, and so the water always appears in the same place. Of course it's salty water, speaking to whatever type of place the sea like area beyond came from.

The occasional people come by to try their hand at fishing with improvised rods, or throw stones across the waves. Although, with no boats or docks to speak of, there isn't any way to investigate the small islands just visible on towards the horizon.

The Outskirts

The growing strip of land cleared of trees, stumbs, rocks, around Holmgard is becoming a much more open space than the dense woods that used to encroach in right to the edges of the new settlement. A wide ring of grassy fields runs in a great semi circle around Holmgard, only broken by the strange sea to the north. The green space, occasionally interspersed with flowers, the odd tree left behind, or buildings themselves, flows with the winds and smells of richness contained within new soil.

Many are already taking advantage of that richness, with a great section of the fields already taken up by tilled rows of many various crops growing thick like stubble on the loamy earth. Other things one expects to find in the countryside elsewhere are wrapped tightly against Holmgard, clutched to it for safety in a new land. Of course, that also means the essence of industries that are normally outside of towns similarly take up space in the open green fields. A very busy construction yard marks where the Build Master is slowly making progress towards turning Holmgard into a metropolis.

He's not the only one though, as many workers are tilling fields, working at construction, or doing any of the other dozens of different jobs required to not only keep a place like Holmgard running, but help it grow.

The Vanguard

When it comes to the end of the world, with everything on the line, people will rise to the challenge. Heroes are made in the fires of crisis, and it is the hope of the masterminds behind the expedition that exactly such will happen when unleashing whatever figures can hold a weapon or cast a spell onto the shattered lands. With all the great generals, mighty warriors, powerful wizards, and divine clerics holding the line just to give Holmgard a chance, it's those unproven heroes who will need to ford ahead and secure this last refuge.

Vanguard members are the elite scouting force of Holmgard, made up of all walks of life and all types of people. The only requirements are bravery and enough competency to survive what might be out there. Convicted criminals, refugees with newfound powers, untrained mages, and even barely armed militia make their way to join. In the hope that is their new home, everyone is included in saving it.

The Mission

once settled in, Vanguard are organized into small teams and sent out in all directions to explore what's around Holmgard in larger and larger journeys. Whatever they find, follow up missions are made to explore further, investigate, perform diplomacy, or quell threats that rear up. They should be doing everything from marking resources that are safe for extraction by common workers, to settling disputes in local settlements they stumble onto. If they survive long enough, some Vanguard may even find themselves measuring up the mighty feats of the heroes trying to defend their doomed home, such as slaying dragons and stopping mighty evils present in this new world.

Joining Up

Those that wish to join the Vanguard show up at the refugee camp back on Seantala, and simply report themselves to Expedition Command to be checked over for the basics. This is mostly to make sure that hopeful recruits have some concrete skills to offer in combat, are capable of working as part of a team, and don't seem to be some kind of ticking time bomb waiting to blow. Everything from kobolds, to dwarves, to elves, and even halflings have been admitted to join the cause.

Vanguard can expect regular pay, based on the missions they perform, and a place to stay. Of course, the spoils they find on their missions are often theirs to keep, assuming they can be carried back.

Accomodations

Settling into Holmgard includes a place for Vanguard to stay. While space in the newly founded town is limited, they're afforded the luxury of private accommodations as recompense for the particularly dangerous task they're being asked to perform. At first, this is something akin to a tent with a cot and minor furniture. However, as Holmgard grows, so too would these accommodations, to possibly include rooms at an inn, bunks in a barracks, or even perhaps a bed in a newly built castle. Below is an example of the kind of accommodations a Vanguard can expect right near the start.

Each tent is relatively similar in construction, being a canvas cover over a light wooden frame that creates a triangular roof and short sides. There's enough room for a single folding cot, a very small desk, a stool, a chest with a lock for holding your things, and a hanging oil lamp on a nail near the front. It's just tall enough for the average person to stand inside at the highest line of the roof, but not much more. Despite that, at least two or three people should be able to squeeze into the tent of need be. Everyone has a little room outside of theirs as well, to maybe set a small campfire, store larger possessions, or whatever they may need. Anything more, you'll have to bring yourself. It may not be much, but it is still yours.

Town Jobs

While prospective players of such a large game may wish to directly participate in jobs around the settlement, or even directly contribute to development and resources. While good intentions, and also a wonderful desire to engage in the settlement, such individual attempts can become difficult to track, give meaningful results, or even perhaps give too meaningful of results. After all, if one person wants to help one of the construction projects, does that mean it will build quicker? Will someone always want to do that after? What if more players join in?

Additionally, with as large a population as Holmgard would represent, such assistance might not make sense. Even if a player could use spell slots to produce food, they might be able to do enough for hundreds in a day. However the settlement might consist of tens of thousands. Plus, such whims of the players might change, and it's not their main role in the West Marches anyway, so doesn't make sense for them to be relied on, or even allowed to take on such roles. Remember they're adventurers first!

To facilitate players being able to help around town in a consistent and easily manageable way, and to give them some money on the side, consider a system of "side jobs" that exist around town, and are added to as buildings are built, that allow players to work there part time as a downtime activity and earn some set amount of gold over a period of time. Below is a list of examples that were used in Argonath.

Tier I Jobs

These jobs paid 1gp per level, per week. They did not require anything from players other than their characters fulfilling some particular base requirement.

Interpreter

Requirement: Speak at least 5 languages

Many different peoples, cultures, and races have come from Seantala to build this new home. With many different peoples comes many different languages. It's not uncommon already for there to be a situation where two or more expedition members need to talk and find they don't share a tongue. There's call for any Vanguard with spare time and a mastery of many languages to stick around incase any information might need translating.

Cargo Hauler

Requires: Powerful Build or similar trait

There's plenty of manpower to carry the vast amounts of supplies and good through the portal from Seantala. Some things are extra large though, proving too heavy or too awkward to carry easily, even with a team of burly folks to help. This is where the Cargo Haulers come in, exceptionally large races in their builds are able to much more easily handle such loads. Anyone in the expedition with extra time and those qualities can earn good coin helping out.

Bow Maker

Requires: Woodcarver's Tools Proficiency

With new business beginning, anyone who knows a few things about fine woodworking and a few hours to spare are welcome to take up a gig at the Bowyer. There's always more backing to set and and arrows to shape.

Stable Hand

Requires: Animal Handling Proficiency

Animals require good care, horses especially. Whether it’s to help shovel the endless dung or keep the equine steeds well brushed or exercised, anyone who wants to lend a hand down at the Stables are welcome to spend some time.

Tier II Jobs

These jobs paid 3gp per level, per week. They required players to do something mechanically impactful, or perform some amount of interaction with other characters semi-regularly to be paid. They are rarer too, often only for specific things that really make sense around the settlement.

Crane Counterweight

Requires: Being a specific, very large, weight

With more advanced techniques now made available to the construction yard by having a fully operation Carpenter's area. Of course, one of the best ways to move heavy things into position are cranes, requiring heavy counterweight stones to balance them out. Unfortunately... moving around big rocks like that requires some machinery of its own, and the selection in Holmgard is limiting anyway. Perhaps it is time to make use of the unique nature of both some of the Vanguard, and the sorts of threats being run into out in the wilds. A particularly rotund person is much the same as a rock as far as the crane is concerned. So if any of the vanguard find themselves of particular fat of ass, they have a job ahead of them in construction.

The responsibility required by this job is to be within 10% of the weight given for that particular week. That may require fattening up or slimming down, but in either case the character needs to be within that range for more days than they're not to get paid. Inflation can't be used to achieve the weight requirement.

Weather Watcher

Requires: Proficiency in Survival, Nature, or druidcraft

The weather in Argonath is rarely stagnant, and with such strange changes that have yet to completely follow any particular season even, it's important to start to know what's coming. Having one of the Vanguard assist with the special predictive equipment brought through from Seantala will help predict at least a little bit.

The responsibility required by this job is to write flavor descriptions for weather as it happens, as well as manage the random weather. You must have time to write up those descriptions as the weather changes every number of days.

The Expedition Leaders

A great many people are giving their all to grow the expedition and Seantala's new home. Below are some of those that serve as particularly notable individuals or leaders here on Argonath.

Tuatha Goldkeeper

Master Quartermaster

Tuatha serves as the top level Quartermaster for the whole Expedition. Primarily, this means she’s in charge of managing supplies for all the military forces of the Expedition, including the Vanguard. In fact, she’s often the one responsible for managing the more mercenary element that those adventurers represent. Of course, Quartermaster Goldkeeper has a whole platoon of clerks and sub-quartermasters who help her get the job done.

She used to serve as the Supply Master for a huge orcish clan that roved the grassy plains of her homeland, a genius of organization. With that clan largely defunct, Tuatha is more than happy to bring order to chaos in this new home, and make sure that any failure the Expedition faces is not the fault of lacking food or broken armor.

Rex T. Kingsburg

Head Expedition Chef

Brought in from the mainland at the demand of his parents, he was placed among the corps as one of the pioneers. The first few soldiers to cross the portal into Argonath, there to make space for the eventual formation of a camp. A process that lasted comparatively little time, yet still cost him plenty. Despite coming from a family of warfaring nobles, he'd never been one for combat. As a result, he sustained numerous injuries during the setup of the camp. Enough so, he was eventually forced to pull back.

Though initially commanded to return to the mainland, he managed to broker a deal with the Guild's command. In short, he'd be in charge of the mess hall, and kitchen. In exchange, and for as long as he remains useful, he will be allowed to remain in Argonath.

Redanagan

Archdruid and Alchemist

With the influx of druidic influence in town, there needs a voice to speak for them, and Redanagan has been selected to serve as such. While she is not the best at the acts of spellcasting or wild shaping, she has a knack for plants, being able to hear what they say and respond in kind. She excels in knowledge when it comes to plants, and knows the use most of the flora native to her lands and beyond, and can quickly pick up on what strange new plants they find may be capable of doing.

Red is often found enjoying time in the woods, the smell of rather unique herbs being burnt always surrounds her. She is one to take things slow and calm, and always has time to see what folk need and assist them in getting a greater understanding of the natural world and their place within it. Failing anything like that, many say she's a rather relaxing presence around Holmgaurd, which can be helpful to break the tension of the day to day hustle and bustle many find trying to rebuild after the apocalypse.

Gabrielle Caillet

Merchant Boss

You’d think that when the world is broken by apocalypse that the last thing someone would think of are luxuries. Gabrielle begged to differ, driving a caravan full of fine goods out of a burning city as it rioted. Such goods may have been thought frivolous by most, but the Golden eyed woman comes from a long line of merchants and deal makers. On arriving at the Refugee Stronghold, her goods made Gabrielle quite popular with the various lords and ladies who’d had to abandon such fineries when fleeing their own nations. Small wonder they let her be in charge of all the economic ventures of their Expedition after that.

Now coming to Argonath, Madam Caillet looks forward to making sure herself and other merchants get things set up right, and this new settlement fattens off the lucrative bounty such untouched lands offer. She’s always been good at knowing what things are really worth.

Perciva

All-Priestess

To live in the world is to know the embrace of the gods. Yet to revel in the glory of only one of the divine is to fall into a unique form of folly. Of course those who follow the path of a singular deity are no fools, they know which aspect of creation they adore most, and wish to spread its joy thoroughly, and to understand it deeply. There are others who seek a wide understanding of the world as a whole. We worship not any singular god, but instead the whole tapestry and tale that has been woven from their combined work. We ask not for a single god's assistance, but for a pantheon, seeking out whatever knowledge we can from their great and vast repertoire to continue in our search for true understanding. That is the path of all priests. A road rarely followed-Second Sermon of the All-Priests Path

Drawn to the faith for a greater understanding of the whole that is reality, and to see it through the visage of the divine, both greater and lower, of good and evil. Perciva seeks to aid and comfort those who seek out her aid through her deep understanding of all forms and walks of faith. Few deities fall outside her realm of understanding, and if they are she puts everything in her power to grow to understand them. Of course she has her own preferences of deities, but she keeps an open mind, even on those many would find to be evil.

Pallas

Militia Leader

Pallas hails from Laressa. A rocky hillscape not far from the sea. She misses the scent of the ocean and the morning mists of the hills. Her home was destroyed like much of the old world. One day the dead simply began to rise and lay waste to towns and villages. Pallas fought an impossible uphill battle of attrition that could only end in defeat. Pallas fought to reclaim her home, trying to take back every inch from the undead but finally accepted the truth. She could not defeat death itself. So she took as many people as she could and ran.

Pallas was nearly slain by her original second in command. He was killed in battle and she found him weeks later as an undead minion that had broken through their lines. A moment’s hesitation caused her to freeze and she was attacked from behind by a large greatsword wielded by another undead minion.

Captain Pallas’s time in the military has made her a good listener. She converses freely with any of the auxiliaries (players) about the security of the camp. She is easily approachable, but it always seems like she is unwilling to share her personal life. This is because Pallas elects to avoid emotional attachment to those who frankly may be dead next week. With time, she may grow to open up more about her past.

Marco Salvatori

Master Architect

Coordinating the workers and tradesfolk of Holmgard is the stalwart and hardened craftsman, Marco Salvatori. With muscles hewn from decades of labor and the sharp gaze of a masterful planner, Marco brings to bear several generations of expertise in all things production and construction. To any willing to learn, he eagerly shares this expertise with calm, direct instruction and demonstration.

Marco spends most of his time in the outskirts coordinating the workers there to ensure that the town’s construction projects are completed on time. He issues regular status updates to the town as to the progress of construction and options for what can be done with the materials at hand. Should an important project not have the requisite materials, he’ll help organize missions to get those materials.

Revila Wavescourge

Shipmaster

An aged and scarred hobgoblin, Revila Wavescourge, commands Holmgard's limited naval forces and sails in service of the Vanguard. Having spent decades of her life aboard various ships evading several of the best navies in the world, she's built up a reputation for being not only a capable sailor, but a masterful duelist and swordswoman. The woman herself is of middling height, around 5'5" or so, with red skin bearing the wear and scars of a lifetime spent narrowly avoiding death at the hands of those wishing to bring her illustrious career as a pirate and smuggler to an end. One particularly grisly wound damaged one of her eyes beyond repair, and she keeps it covered with an eyepatch. Thankfully, the remaining eye pierces well enough for two.

She tends to wear clothes in royal blues and purples, ornamented with copious amounts of golden jewelry acquired over the years. A gold trimmed headcloth tends to keep her short grey dreadlocked hair organized and out of the way in the sea breeze. When she speaks, her voice is low and coarse as the years of barking orders over the roar of the waves and gusting winds have worn at her vocal chords. The smoking habit probably hasn't helped either.

Buildings and The Building System

Town Statistics

In order to give life to the settlement of Holmgard that players would work so hard to protect, specific mechanics to represent the growth and development are a necessity. Therefor, a two piece system is used in order to both allow the players to impact their settlement home, but also to give them something to work together on as a large group. Progression in the game is measured in the town itself instead of the leveling or gearing of individuals.

Resources

A system of resources used and produced by the town will be in place to represent the complication of more than just throwing gold at things, while also giving more meaningful progression and management to the town that the players can interact with. These resources are divided into two main types, Dynamic and Static.

Dynamic

Dynamic resources are expended when used, needing to be replenished either by a limited amount from buildings in town weekly, or more commonly as rewards from going on missions. Generally the amount rewarded on missions should reflect the tier the town is currently in. They generally represent some inexact amount of the resource to go along with the inexact size of the town using them.

Wood: Some amount of lumber, be it freshly cut trees, trimmed boards, or something in between.

Metal: Raw or processed iron, copper, or other metals. This is non specific to type.

Stone: It rocks

Food: Consumed by the population each week. An amount of player interaction will be required to keep bellies full, such as hunting missions and the like. It is further broken down into types. Each week will take a relatively equal amount of each. The type of food most common can have an effect on the average waistlines of the town over time.

  • Slimming. Generally low calorie food like fruits and veggies
  • Normal. Run of the mill food like breads, meats, cheeses
  • Fatty. High calorie foods like sweets, pastries, or particularly magical food.
Static

These types of resources are not consumed when used. Instead, each one acts like a meter, supplying for a demand. The town will begin to have problems if you ever do not have enough supply of these for the demand created. These are a little more complicated and cannot be regular mission rewards.

Happiness: Overall fun stuff and good amenities in town. Created by things like the brewer, restaurant, and hospital, required 1 for each 2 points of population. Happiness also is required for each 5 security.

Magic: Overall measure of how many mages, easy sources of mana, and ease of enchanting in town. Created by things like magic crystal fields, book store. Required by things like magic item vendor, Milk Bar, and Super Gym

Population: A vague measure of the current amount of people in town. Not a specific measure, but instead general. 1 Population might not mean 10 people each for example. The main way to 'succeed' in Argonath is to create enough of this. Created from building Houses almost exclusively and represents more refugees coming through the portal. Nearly every building unless otherwise states requires 1 or more population to "work", representing people being available to do that new job.

Security: A general measure of how safe Holmgard is and is a combined representation of things like strong fighters, militia, soldiers, and other safety measures. Created by things like the watchtower, barracks, hunter's lodge. Various buildings contribute negatively to security, such as the brewer, mines and quarries, and other 'unsafe' or distant buildings. Population to a lesser degree also contributes negatively to security. Security use goes up for every 10 population.

Fatty Factor

This is a separate, hidden, stat for the town. Basically, as events, abudance of food (especially fatty food), or certain buildings are constructed, Holmgard may start to see an average overall increase in how fat people are. Generally each point would represent an average change of 20lbs or so. Though this could be hundreds on some, and zero on others.

At first, Fatty Factor only adds food eaten each week on a 1 to 1 ratio. At higher amounts, it may start to increase happiness directly and heighten security. Though it would also start increase population usage and even lower production of dynamic resources.

Construction

Holmgard will have ongoing construction from the time the game starts till just about the end. These buildings are intended to be a form of collective progression, and an alternative reward system in one for the West Marches players. In general, Holmgard ise divided into different regions that will fill with these buildings as they are constructed. Not every building is intended to have it's own rp space, but wouldl be assigned to an area within camp. Every building provides some kind of benefit. Additionally, this is intended to start at zero and move up. That means basic services like buying and selling even mundane items won't be available until built.

Each week a construction project will complete and a new one will start. These are intended to be somewhat controlled by players, such as public voting from a few randomly chosen available buildings. Static costs and dynamic costs will be applied when the building begins construction, besides population. Population will be applied when the building finishes. However, population capacity additions will be applied when the building begins construction.

While building might be a bit narrow for how it is used here, most construction will be buildings. These might provide any number of things, such as access to resources, services, npcs, additional RP spaces, player housing locations, construction slots, kink content, etc. Some will be upgrades to previous buildings, effectively replacing them. There are three tiers the town will go through. Each will involve bigger and better buildings, longer construction time, and an overall upscaling of the town.

Apothecary

Tucked into the nearby grove sits a small shack which houses the simple and plain sign of a mortar and pestle, the classical duo which denote the location as one that deals with the procurement of various medical remedies and magical salves for all the needs and woes of those who require. Various plants are set up in small pots that hang from available perches, the place looking more like an extension of the forest than a building placed in it, the druids making an effort for it to be a seamless part of their grove, even if its on the outskirts of their natural zone. And of course, the entry way is a gentle ramp, no great steps required

The inside is filled with the smells of various alchemical remedies and agents filling the air, plants left to dry, reagents boiling away in a separate room, and the life of the plants that are housed in the building. Various shelves are lined with bottles and water skins with various labels on it, a more technical name and a lay-mans explanations engraved so all who venture have a fairly good idea of what is for what. At the far end of the room sits a desk with various alchemical supplies and Redanagan sitting at her trusty post, working away on whatever agent is needed for the town and vanguard next. Though she is far more cooped up with her new work, she seems just as happy as ever.

Redanagan is able to make a variety of potions, and continues to work on a variety of other projects to provide medical and recreational aid to the expedition and the vanguard. Medicines to alleviate ailments, grant natural boons, or deadly effects for enemies. See the list for her offerings. These Herb potions are a bit different than those of magical potions, being a touch easier to use and imbibe than most. Thus, they can be applied or ingested as a Bonus Action, unless they are an item that requires an action to use.

Finding Alchemical Ingredients

Each ingredient should be 'findable' in any environment that matches it. Generally, this should involve a nature check, though other skills and proficiencies could be used with either disadvantage or a higher DC. One should make such a finding check to find one specific ingredient at a time, and each search represents an hour of effort out in the natural environment. A success will give the user 1d3 + half their wisdom modifier rounded up in doses. Failing the check by five or more means that the particular ingredient won't be available in that area for at least a week.

Difficulty Class The DC of finding a particular ingredient starts at 12. Using different skills should increase this DC, usually by 3-5. Also, particularly rare or powerful ingredients should increase this even further. The exact increase should be decided by the DM.

Preparing ingredients

The various ingredients you can gather all require some specific way to prepare them, though largely fall into three categories based on the main way they're made ready to use, an involved brewing process, ingesting them largely as is, or applying them, usually as a poultice, directly to an area of the body. Each one requires a different way of preparing it, and each one has a different difficulty associated with it. Regardless, each time you prepare an Herb Potion, one dose of ingredients makes one potion. Failing the required roll still results in the loss of the dose of ingredients. Particularly rare ingredients are likely to also have DCs higher than the base amount.

Applied. Generally pressed directly against whatever needs the Herb Potion. Requires a DC 10 Alchemist's Tools check or a DC 12 Nature check. You will also require some piece of cloth or something similar to hold the mixture.

Ingested. Generally eaten as some kind of pulp or dried herb. Requires a DC 12 Alchemist's tools check with the tools, or alternatively a DC 14 Nature or Herbalist's Kit check. You will also require some piece of cloth or something similar to hold the mixture.

Brewed. Generally drank after being distilled into a liquid mixture that is a potion in truth. Requires a DC 15 Alchemist's Tools check with the tools. You will also require some kind of bottle to hold the liquid.

Much could be said on the mystery of what, or even why Argonath is. The simplest explanation also raises the most questions. Imagine a vast quilt, made of all different pieces of fabric with all their hues and patterns, laid out across a bed. It'd look disjointed and messy, but it works all the same. If you look long enough you might even see a a method to the madness. Argonath is much the same in it's own way. Shattered refers to the many fragments of disjointed land that are bunched up together, acting as one continuous landmass. Each piece of land, referred to as shards, comes from somewhere else, another material plane, or another reality. They are not all from the same world, and the shards reflect this.

This patchwork nature creates pockets of isolated and interspersed civilization and mystery. There are many settlements, partial cities, and ruins that have been sucked into Argonath from elsewhere, their people brought along for the ride. It is actually unique among the Shattered Lands that the people of Seantala have come here through a portal, to a segment of land that is not from their doomed home world. It is a testament to the skill of their mages maintaining it to have been able to perform such a feat.

There is no known edge to Argonath, at least that has been explored. Nor is it known how long some of these places have been here. Millenia old ruins look no newer for being transported to this strange place as part of a shard. Perhaps there are answers to be discovered in the far flung edges of this land. However, for now Holmgard's goal is to build their new home and give their refugee survivors a fresh start.

Exploration

In order for Holmgard to survive, it must venture out into the unknown of the broken lands that surround their new home. The map of the shattered lands should start as shrouded, leaving only the hex containing Holmgard itself visible. From this point, the Vanguard themselves will fulfill their role of exploring this place hex by hex, and region by region. The world will reveal itself with each successful mission as more and more of the Shattered Lands become known and mapped.

Recovering Resources and loot

A large reason for the Vanguard to go out to the various regions around Holmgard is to mark the resources around for retrieval, while also gaining a boon of their own with whatever treasures may exist in all the forgotten and hidden places across the map. Each Mission out into the Shattered Lands is meant to reward players and characters in kind.

Loot. While any particular place is going to have some very random amount of equipment and treasure, simply using the tables in the Dungeon Master's Guide, or 'rule of thumb' is unlikely to give a fully satisfying result. This is especially true with how frequently Vanguard may find themselves going on adventures and getting into fights with people who have stuff to take. Here is a system that can be used for determining a fairly equitable 'loot per mission'. Understand that these numbers expect low level players. As characters rise to level 5 or higher, such numbers will require adjustment.

  • Each mission will have a certain amount of ‘loot points’ for you to build a loot pool. Each mission will have 4 points. Particularly Hard missions add 1 point. You do not need to use all of the points. What exact items make up the loot should use some amount of randomness.

  • Consumable magic items like potions can give out x2 for the same LP spent.

  • Dynamic resources (Wood, Stone, Metal, Food) represent some amount of that resource present on the mission that should be easy to get now that the Expedition knows it’s there and it’s been made safe by the players.

  • 1 LP: 50gp of gold or 100gp of treasure items and equipment, common magic item

  • 2 LP: Holmgard Resource (wood, stone, metal, food)

  • 3 LP: Uncommon magic item

  • 5 LP: Rare magic item

Resources. The resources that are found on missions, rocks, iron, or wood, don't have to be amounts the Vanguard carry back. Instead, these represent some large amount, say a cart or few carts full. What the Vanguard are doing by fighting things in the area is securing it for workers from Holmgard to come back after they leave to chop down some trees, gather large surface rocks, or even collect the food left behind.

Navigation Rolls

When exploring new regions (hexes) in Argonath, a group of Vanguard going on such a mission should be trailblazing, finding safe paths, looking for and avoiding dangers in the area, and getting a lay of the land. This is best simplified by a single Survival roll made to represent the total efforts made during the long trek from Holmgard to wherever the party may find themselves exploring. This is something that likely should not be used in subsequent revisits to the same hex though, since a least one safe path has already been found.

Navigation DC

The Difficult Class of the Survival roll should depend on several factors, including the location of the recon mission, the distance required to get there, and any ongoing events like weather that could effect it. However, the base DC should look like this:

Roll DC = 8 + (Hexes traveled x 2) + Biome Modifier

When it comes to temporary bonuses to rolls, such as guidance and enhance ability, remember that the roll represents effort over an hour in time. Anything with a duration less than an hour likely should not apply to the roll. However, someone else can use their own survival proficiency to help with the roll.

Succeeding on the roll means that the Vanguard part has successfully navigated through the new area towards whatever destination may be of interest there without complications. Failure would not mean they don't arrive, but likely means something about the enviroment they're exploring proves to be an extra obstacle. Below is a table with the DC Modifiers for each Biome, and a suggested effect of failure. However, any number of different things could happen. The important part is just to make sure they are mechanically relevant.

Weather

The nature of Argonath is a strange one, especially when it comes to weather. While the cycle of day and night seem to be continuous across all shards, the particular patterns of weather across them are not. This can mean some unexpected problems or boons when it comes to trying to get things done outside and around Holmgard. Below is a list of possible weather effects, and even special weather events. The chance presented applies mostly to a temperate climate like the one that Holmgard finds itself in. This table could be used to keep the weather around the town dynamic and up to chance. However, it can also be used to help fill in the different weathers that might be happening in other shards as well.

Normal Weather
ChanceTypeEffect
1-35Clear Skies+2 to survival checks made for navigation in the Shard.
36-50Partially CloudyNo special effect
51-60Thick FogVisibility is limited to 100ft
61-70Rain-2 to survival checks made for navigation in the Shard.
71-80Heavy RainThings do not instantly burn when set on fire, resistance to any source of fire damage. Also -2 to survival checks made for navigation in the Shard.
81-90ThunderstormDisadvantage to all survival checks.
91-98SnowDisadvantage to checks related to hearing and tracking.
99-100Snow StormDisadvantage to survival checks, make checks every hour for cold based exhaustion.

Special Weather

Not all weather in such a place is as normal as rain or snow. With the uniquely magical nature of the Shattered lands, more fantastical events are also possible, often accompanying more normal weather. Perhaps a cloudless day is enhanced by strange flashes of energy in the sky high above, signaling a planar storm, or maybe a heavy rain is accompanied by extra deliciousness in the food enjoyed around the cozy fire, bringing a diet deluge along with it. These events are rarer, but can really change up what's going on. As with regular weather, stepping into a different shard may find a party encountering a special weather event localized entirely to that shard.

Special Weather Events

19Wild Magic StormEach time a spell is cast, there is a 1 in 20 chance of activating a Wild Magic Surge as per the Wildmagic Sorcerer Subclass.
20Chocolate RainWhile outside, any food eaten or weight gained is doubled under the deluge.

Biomes

With the Shatterlands being made up of so many disparate locales, these places often are very different from each other. Each Shard can be its own unique place with strange fauna, flora, and whatever structures it may possess. However, for the sake simplicity and categorization, most shards fall into one of 22 different biomes. These make up the bulk of anywhere that might be explored, and so included with each is a description, a list of possible monsters one might encounter there, and a depiction of what such a biome might look like. They are also broken down into Woodlands, Barren, Aquatic, and Exotic environments.

For standard randomized weather, roll a d100 to determine the new weather effect. Roll a d6+1 to determine the length of that weather event in days. Finally, Roll a d20, with an even result meaning a special weather event occurs if one hasn't happened during the last weather change. It will last half as long as the regular weather event.

Also known as Taigas, Boreal Forests are typically located near the arctic regions of most worlds and are as such marked by very cold climates. Aside from a few rare months a year, the ground will be covered by snow, making traversal difficult for unprepared travelers.

Evergreen trees like firs and pines thrive in these biomes. Large, thick-furred creatures and those able to burrow down and hibernate also find great success here. Explorers should beware of stumbling upon the den of a sleeping beast…

In their native worlds, nights in Boreal Forests are illuminated by auroras dancing across the sky. While these biomes may no longer be in their near polar locations, it’s possible that they may have brought some of that magic with them to Argonath.

Jungle

Jungles and Rainforests are typically located in the tropical regions of their native worlds. The leaves of the Jungle’s massive trees typically obscure the sky above completely, casting shade or even darkness on the forest floor below, greatly limiting visibility.

Plant life here is exceptionally thick with vines, moss, and fungi, all of which can make for precarious navigation. Jungles boast some of the greatest biodiversity of all biomes, and therefore are home to all manner of strange and unique creatures.

Typical Jungles experience Dry and Wet seasons. During wet seasons, torrential rainfall can deposit exceptional quantities of water in very short time spans. Regardless of season, however, the air in the Jungle will usually be hot and humid.

Temperate

Temperate forests consist of either broadleaf trees in more moderate climates, evergreen in harsher climates, or some mixture of the two. Forests dominated by broadleaf trees like oak and maple will show much variation with the seasons, with their leaves changing color in the fall and falling before winter.

These biomes have distinct warm and cool seasons, with average rainfall dispersed throughout the year. The canopy is typically not thick enough to fully obscure the sky above, leaving the ground below shaded but not in total darkness. The light that shines through the treetops also allows many green plants and smaller trees to flourish along the ground level.

Swamp

Swamps are forests that occur in a low lying, moist environment. The land is largely dominated by rivers, streams, or large pools of stagnant water. Trees with wide sprawling roots and moss covered branches thrive in these wetlands, and many types of fungus can be found on the fallen and decaying plant matter that litters the ground.

Swamps typically have humid and damp climates, with either plentiful rainfall or ample sources of water flowing into the region. The ground will also tend to be soft and spongy, or just outright muddy. Passage through swamps without some means of navigating the waters can be very treacherous.

Swamps with waters that sit stagnant and still will often take on a more rank and unpleasant nature. The air will be more humid as more water vapor lingers at the surface, and creatures that feed or flourish on rot will be more prevalent.

Barren

Deserts

Deserts are dry, open expanses dominated by sand dunes and barren rock. Hot days and freezing nights are common, and rainfall is very much a rarity. Occasional oasis can be found dotting the deserts, which can offer respite and resources to those crossing these lands, but there are also many creatures and plants that have adapted to the conditions of the desert.

Passing through deserts will typically require much in the way of preparation. And provisions and water that travelers will need will need to be brought along, as scavenging or foraging will be challenging.

Craglands

Craglands are similar to deserts in that they are hot, arid environments, and the two often share a lot of overlap. Where the two differ, however, is in the terrain. Instead of the shifting sands of the desert, craglands are typically covered by hard packed, stony terrain.

The sedimentary rock that makes up the bulk of the terrain here is subject to rather extreme erosion, causing deep crevasses to be carved into the land. The erosion can be caused either by ancient and long dried streams, or by sheer wind force wearing down the rock over the eons.

Conditions within the deep crevasses may be very different from the rest of the biome. Consider what may lie in a deep, isolated pocket in the craglands. Perhaps moisture has accumulated to form a sort of a rocky oasis, or perhaps a civilization has cropped up using the crags to avoid the hostile conditions above. Caves will also be a very common part of the landscape.

Savannah

Savannahs are arid biomes that get enough rainfall for a variety of plant life to take hold and hold the soil firm and prevent desertification. The plants that do well in these biomes tend to be hardy grasses and shrubs that can survive on small amounts of water and warm climates. Trees tend to be spread far from each other so as not to compete for each others’ water. They are typically tall and thin, with a wide umbrella of leaves.

Water sources can be found here, albeit often with difficulty and far from each other. These water sources will be a prize resource for any local fauna and any travelers passing through.

With abundant plant life and water being much easier to find than in other arid environments, large herbivores roam these lands, as do the creatures that hunt them. Travelers should beware prowling carnivores when settling down to rest for the evening.

Steppes

The rolling grasslands of the steppes are a lush expanse of hilly, green terrain. Typically steppes are devoid of any sort of forestation, and are dominated by grasses. Weather conditions are usually mild, with occasional rain and thunderstorms rolling through the lands to nourish the local plant life.

In areas where there are larger or denser collections of hills, creatures and people can find shelter from the wide open sight lines of the plains. Adventurers should be wary of poking their heads into these pockets of shelter, as there’s no telling what lies within.

Overall, travel through the steppes is quick and efficient, with little in the way of natural barriers to prevent passage. As a result, the use of horses and other riding animals is a fairly common means of rapid traversal of the Steppes.

Mountain

Any creature or civilization that makes a home in the mountains does so with great difficulty or extensive adaptation. The steep slopes of mountain terrain are difficult to traverse for those not accustomed to climbing, and in more rocky mountain terrain, travelers will often find themselves contending with vertical cliff faces or drop offs. Available paths to navigate between, around, or over mountains tend to be narrow and winding, and, unless extensively maintained by natives, exceptionally treacherous.

Mountains in more temperate climates and with milder slopes can be covered in forests and trees, but in harsher climates and with steeper slopes, any vegetation or trees will have a very difficult time clinging to the mountains, leaving their slopes barren and rocky. Depending on the composition and climate of the mountains, travelers will need to take heed to avoid and navigate around rock falls, avalanches, and mudslides that can prove fatal when caught in or difficult to navigate around.

For mountains that reach great height, the air will be much colder and thinner near the summits. Unprepared travelers in these conditions will find themselves struggling to stay warm and even breathe.

Aquatic

Archipelago

In any sufficiently large body of water, chains or clusters of islands can form, providing a place for terrestrial life to take hold in an otherwise aquatic environment. These islands can form through several different means, which will affect their shape and nature greatly.

Volcanic islands form when magma erupts from the seabed, cools, and over time, builds upon itself until it breaks the water’s surface, forming an island. Soil on these islands is typically very fertile, and dense jungles will form upon them.

Other kinds of islands can form when a mountainous region is flooded. The low lying areas are overtaken by water and only the high peaks of the hills or mountains are left to stand over the water’s surface. This process can happen whenever a river is blocked through either natural means or by a construction blocking the flow.

Because the islands are separated from each other by an expanse of water, they will typically diverge from each other in unique ways. Life that flourishes on one island may be rare on another. When traveling through an archipelago, adventurers may find that no two islands are remotely alike.

Inland Lake/Sea

The shoreline around these areas are covered in shells and driftwood. They’re brought there by lapping waves cresting on the beaches of the areas surrounding huge bodies of open water. Some are simply large lakes, filled with freshwater fish, often fed into by rivers from other areas and regions. They make for good food gathering. Other times, the zone is much larger, salty, part of an open ocean or sea that runs deep beneath the water’s surface. The waves are stronger too, and often hide monstrous sea creatures just waiting for someone to try to cross in a less sea worthy boat.

Any adventure that goes to this place is likely to be about monster hunting, or trying to dive deep to find sunken ruins in the depths. Either way, even simply trying to cross such a region will require some kind of floating transport to make it to the other side.

Exotic

Floating Ocean Islands

Large cliffs flank these lands as there is a sheer drop down into a calm and empty sea. There is nothing of interest in these seas, small schools of fish and such. What is of real interest is the archipelago floating in the air. Suspended in the air are floating islands, tropical and temperate in nature, powerful air magics keep the islands floating.

These lands are full of strong breezes to assist the flying creatures to soar through the lands with ease. Traveling between islands can prove a bit difficult to the typical adventurer, but with a bit of cunning (or have a flying ship built). What lay on these islands are unknown and mysterious, untouched by most who would wander these lands.

Volcanic

Fragmented sheats of barely cooled obsidian and rock float like massive jutting icebergs over a sea of smoldering magma. Some of the land is cool enough to stand on, but that doesn’t make it comfortable. In some places, the semi cooled earth forms miniature volcanoes, ready to burst with molten lava at any given moment.

Adventures here require travelers to consider how they’ll traverse any gaps in the obsidian landscape, and how they’ll remain at a comfortable temperature amongst terrain hot enough to boil water.

The creatures here are either fiery in nature, or very attuned to fire itself, with some creatures that make nests in melted rock, while others like some devils or demons may simply enjoy the respite given by their immunity to the harsh landscape.

Fey Woods

These places look often quite similar to any other forest, yet the touch of the strange is undeniable. Trees grow in chaotic directions and shapes with whatever whim seems to grip them, with their colors drifting more towards fantastical shades than whatever a normal forest may call for. Sometimes mushrooms will grow as tall as the trees, with all manner of strange creature calling them home. Even the grass below shifts and changes. Here, all things are touched with life and whimsy.

The forest is filled with tricksters and fae of all sorts, just looking for people to make deals with, play pranks on, or use to entertain them for an afternoon. Traversing such a place carries challenges beyond just what the denizens do though. Sometimes, walking through puts you in a different place than you expect, paths loop back on themselves, or walking far enough that you should have reached the edge finds you less than halfway there. Be careful what you take for granted here.

Ice Fields

The land of an Ice Field isn’t simply cold, but completely frozen through. Instead of dirt underfoot, one is faced with giving snow. If you dig down into the snow, you find ice. Only once you dig through dozens of feet of that might you find rock. The same is true of the mountains and hills that exist here, covered in many layers of hardened ice, long buried. Some places even have completely translucent spires with nothing but frozen water, piercing up towards the sky.

Going any distance here without strong protection from the cold is folly, as even starting a fire could easily melt water that will simply put it out again if you’re not careful. Bring your own food, for it will be rare to find any here. That’s not to say there isn’t any of course. The creatures that make ice fields their home are hearty creatures bound to the frozen world around them.

Dark Forest

Towering trees and near constant rainfall makes this land seem like the typical temperate rainforest. Yet the trees are pitch black, an oddity of the land. In truth the trees are not pitch, but instead absorb every ounce of sunlight that comes into contact with them, so specialized to absorb the sun's light.

The under canopy if these lands are darker than most caves, with only creatures most specialized into surviving in such environments being able to thrive where they cannot see. The only light one may see in these lands are that of fungal glow or the light of flame. Light is both a blessing and a curse here, as while you may be able to see now, everything can see you as well.

Many fearsome creatures lurk in these conditions, skulking for a meal, and ready to combat nearly anything they come into contact with, as finding another in such dark environments are rare indeed.

Overland Sea

Brilliant corals shining in the sun, seagrass swaying in the tide, and fish swimming overhead. All sights that would be found in the ocean, though not a drop of water can be found. An entire sea, full of every creature that could inhabit it, all flying around as if they were swimming.

These lands come from a unique intersection of elemental air and water, which allows for native creatures with an affinity to swim to move freely in the air as if in the water. Creatures' behavior down here seem no different than that of the actual sea, fish school, sharks hunt, and corals soak up the sun.

Adventurers diving into this slice of ocean above the water will find that they can breathe in this fresh air, but cannot swim around like the fish can. Creatures who are from here however cannot leave, as if they try to leave the threshold of the environment, gravity returns to them, as they gasp for breath, if they need water to breathe.

Adventurers beware, as there are still sections of these lands which share the ocean's dangers, where the sun doesn’t reach as well, and many dangers lurk behind the rocks. Even in the sunny reefs hold dangers, as threats can loom overhead all the more readily.

Storm Mountains

Rising mountains taller than many other peaks and surrounded by constant gray cloud cover. The Storm Mountains are never calm, with constant bad weather, winds threatening to rip you from cliff faces, and powerful natives that will do the work that the clouds didn’t. Not to say that all is a death trap here, strange magical places exist in all kinds of nooks and crannies.

Prepare for an arduous climb no matter what part of the Mountains you try to get to, facing the environment itself to make the journey. Like other mountains, the climate may vary, with some becoming constant blizzards whipping snow into the air, while others have damp woods always threatening landslides.

Dead Lands

A landscape permeated with Necromancy, negative energy, and death. Dead Lands are areas where undead roam in hordes, ruins of long destroyed towns sit haunted in the middle of husks of woods long since abandoned of life.

The nature of what is here is dependent on where the original piece of land came from. Some are chunks of land permeated with negative energy that trap creatures wandering in from other biomes, turning them into monsters that then stalk the hills. Others may be from worlds that fell to necromancy long ago, bringing with them great works of undead in the form of bone factories and endless graveyards. Of course, the old masters of such places may have come with, and more than one Lich is likely to have a home here.

Swarm Lands

A roiling gray landscape that looks almost devoid of plant life covers the hills ahead. This is the Swarm Lands. Vast swarms of small insects fill the skies, while larger bugs lurch heavily across massive rocks that sit exposed on top of the ground. Deep twisting tunnels created by burrowing types scar the terrain, while mountains naked of topsoil stick up like angry pillars towards the skies.

The swarms devour almost any spare biomatter, incorporating it into themselves, meaning that quite often the bugs fight each other to further their own growth. It’s a dangerous place to be, filled with alien life. Journey here carefully.

Candy Land

Through means of lipomancy, or simply one of the stranger worlds that have been placed into Argonath, the Candy Lands are strange lands filled with sweets. It looks like a typical landscape of fields and forests found in temperate inland environments, save for the fact that every aspect of the area is made entirely of candies and sweets. Trees made from chocolate, plants with a minty glaze, stones that crack open to reveal a nougat center. This edibility extends to every aspect of the land, including its creatures.

Mundane creatures can be found here, except they are wholly made of sweets, such as chocolate bunnies or cake cows. The people who live here seem unbothered by it all, and simply live their lives in symbiosis with the delicious lands. No one quite knows what would happen if a particularly ravenous adventurer would take it upon themselves to devour the lands though…

The Shattered Lands of Argonath are made up of many different pieces of land that come from many different places. Each piece of land is referred to as a 'Shard' since it is effectively a single chunk of somewhere else bigger. They vary wildly in everything from elevation, to climate, to inhabitants, to even size. Each shard is 'plucked' from where it originally came from, bringing with it what land, people, structures, or anything else that was going on with it at the time. Often, when this happens it displaces whatever shards might occupy the place it arrives at, either in part or entirely. This is often accompanied by mighty tremors and rumbling as the very fabric of the shattered lands adjusts and changes with the new addition. Usually, these places are from the material world of wherever they come from, but that doesn't mean stranger things don't also make their way to the shattered lands, as can be seen in the earlier list of biomes.

Contents of Shards

Shards tend to be large things, and while they can vary greatly in size, they are almost always at least half a dozen miles or more in size, stretching out sometimes to encompass sections of land that are dozens of miles long and wide. Whatever the land was like is also transplanted, so mountains and lakes come with, or villages that existed on the land, the people and creatures too.

When a population or settlement existed on a shard before it moved, they are stuck in Argonath. These groups might explore the shards around them, but more often than not they prefer to keep to their own transplanted land. After all, if the shard were to one day return home, anyone not on the shard when it returns would be left behind. The same can be said of the less intelligent creatures that exist on these shards. Some may migrate to other places, but most seem to have some instinctual understanding of what is 'home' and what isn't. This is often helped by how strange neighboring shards can be in comparison.

Quite often, the isolated nature of these communities means there's always problems to be fixed, or shortages to be remedied. They're a perfect place for any industrious explorer to wander into looking to offer help for whatever rewards can be found. Just as often though, these places can be empty of people, containing ruins of a land, or whole world, that is long dead, and whatever treasures and dangers exist in such tombs.

Going between Shards

Moving between shards can be a challenging task, depending on where you try to do so, and the shard itself. The borders between these land fragments are the most obvious sign of the strangeness of the shattered lands. Each shard has a very well defined, exact border, where one begins and another ends. There are no smooth transitions of topography or terrain. If the land of one shard was a higher elevation that one bordering it, you may find yourself faced with a massive, jagged wall of rock to climb to make the transition, or conversely a cliff. Though these changes can be less extreme, a few foot or inch difference that requires just a step.

These transition points are also characterized by a slight pressure in the air. There's no definitive magical effect to identify, but it seems to keep things like air, and heat, and similar things within the boundaries of the shard they originate from. One could pass from a balmy summer day in a tropical shard, and step a foot over into a frigid glacial shard covered in ice and snow. Weather is similarly bound, with rainstorms ending in fine barriers, or a bank of fog abruptly cut off. Despite this exacting separation, larger and heavier things are perfectly capable of passing through. Creatures have no issues making the transition, and something like a rockslide would have no issues falling down a hill into a neighboring shard. Indeed, the scattered Shards filled with water that act as Argonath's patchwork and snaking oceans are actually just all shards that appeared which were below the water level, water pouring in from all around, or disgorging their own lakes and seawater into those around them.

The skies above

Above Argonath, a sun shines brightly during the day, with a moon and stars appearing at night, as most would be used to from wherever they're from. The cycle of day and night does seem to be the same no matter what shard you're in, a welcome boon to make some travel easier. However, while the sun is simply too bright to tell, it's clear the moon is made up of many different colored pieces of glowing material, a kaleidoscope of hues and likely made up of shards of other moons in the same way the land below is. Around it, the stars are not familiar to anyone, even if they're there. No one has been up there to check.

Specific Shards

While being given the information to wonder about what these shards could look like is all well and good, having some specific examples, and what mysteries they could contain, is a much better tool. And so, the next pages contain what are just some of the shards that appeared in the Argonath game, and can serve as examples of what other shards may look like.

Aqualin’s Ruins

Open Sea Ruins

In the vast ocean of Argonath, the remains of a collapsed city drifts afloat, its stone houses, castles, and markets defying the notion of density as it is understood, creating unexpected high-sea dangers, with the potential debris that splits from the wreckage and may reach unprepared ships sailing too close. There are still those who dare brave forth, and the potential source of whatever force has altered the floatability of the city’s remains makes it genuinely contested territory, with many trying to uncover the mysteries that lay desolated somewhere in the center of the city’s crumbled structures.

In the city, one may find undead creatures crawling through the floating city aimlessly, awakened by unresolved business as many of them still fought for the city to be preserved until the very end. But along with that, a Sahuagin clan has started trying to loot the remains, even if they often fall to the challenges ahead and constant in-fighting, creating a race for the treasures the adventurers should hope to beat.

Doomed by the Ocean

The past uncovered through the remains of the city is a story told before it began. Aqualin, a city built to encompass its small island completely, was very self-sufficient and advanced beyond its expectations, but the signs of the sea rising were obvious from eons past, indeed, it was the city’s certain doom that gave it its name. Its people were starved for options, too many lived in the city for the ships to be able to carry them to safety and the world abroad was mostly unknown, there simply was no one to help.

Then, the council of mages of Aqualin had a plan, they’d learn to manipulate floatability, and once it was in their control, they would use that to imbue that magic in the whole city, the people would be safe, drifting with the buildings in the floating city. So, ample research was devoted to this and scaling it to the level that it could affect the whole city, but their time was running out, and the roadblocks were making this progress take years to complete.

At the end, the sea was too fast, and inundations became a constant in the life of Aqualin’s residents, they’d build bridges, while hoping the solution would come soon. In desperation, the mages used what they had, and it seemingly had no effect. There was nothing more to do as they were eventually submerged completely. The people that could, fled, the others drowned. It’d be years later that the spells were revealed to have a delayed effect, the magic was working, it just took way longer than they needed to drag the city’s remains up to the sea level. When it was way past destroyed, its piece of the world was shaken off its roots and dropped as a shard in Argonath.

Bulging Battlefield

The Battle of the Bulge

The Prosperous Nation of Sillisea is a relatively utopian society that has risen on their homeworld after a long history of strife. This is no secret dystopia, nor a perfect society on the verge of collapse. Crime, homelessness, poverty, have all been effectively eliminated, leaving their people happy, and also quite fat. It turns out that without war or hardship, people tend to relax into a comfortable languidness.

However, that doesn’t mean that all differences have been quelled, or that people disagree less. Instead, such conflicts take a less… important caste, turning towards more inconsequential things that are elevated to grand battles by the lack of more serious problems to fight over.

Such things need to be settled, and words are often not enough. So the solution is clearly to settle things with a battle that threatens no lives, and leads to a minimum of real pain. Enter, the Bulging Battlefield. With more than enough magic to make everyone’s lives easy, it was nothing to set up a battlefield with fake ruins and fortifications to have mock battles between any groups that could pay the entry fee. Except the threat is not sword and axe, but fattening and feeding. The rules tend to be simple, if you fall to being too fat to move, or too stuffed to stand, clearly you’re wrong, and your ante is forfeit.

The Bulging Battlefield was a resounding success, helping to settle all kinds of debates while simultaneously bringing a great form of entertainment for those scrying at home, or even participating. It turns out when it’s super easy to get fat, it becomes something of a standard of beauty in of itself. Even though getting flabbed up is a loss, they aren’t losing in all respects if you know what they mean.

Under New Management

The Bulging Battlefield consists mostly of fields and planes heavily raised on their shard above 'ground level'. There are artificial buildings and other minor features that represent scattered ruins purpose built to serve as focus points for conflict. These ruins are ever changing, providing a wide variety of environments and settings for the combatants to fight against one another. Of course, they construct these with safety in mind, never creating an arena which can be outright harmful to their contestants.

There is also a section with floating islands that each have various transforming arena’s atop them, with teleport pads at the bottom to reach them. Buildings established to house spectators and areas for the combatants to prepare are often designed with even the widest individual in mind, being double or triple wide to anything found just about anywhere else, and constructed in such a way that comfort and durability have been accounted for. Many folk find themselves a bit small in the seats, but who wouldn’t want a near couch all to themselves if they were that small. Means to enjoy oneself in the brief moments before or after combat are available, small stands which can provide cheap fast foods can be found about.

Competition

When the adventurers of Holmgard stumble onto the Battlefield, the Silliseans have initiated one of their biennial Tournament of Settling. Two great peoples battled in ancient times before the Nation of Sillisea became what it is. While they now live together in harmony, these great battles are commemorated with the great blubber games, in which the Mighty Munchifors and theAdept Adicrates play out their differences in battles that end up costing many waistlines to settle who is currently superior.

The Munchifors were a proud warrior people that roamed the plains and seas of their homeworld, crushing all competition and enemies in brutal combat. Their martial skill was always prized, and unquestioned. This history carries over into modern times as people who tend to handle conflicts in head on, forceful ways. Their battleaxes and war armors have been replaced by beer kegs and heavy foods, but their brash culture of celebration has never left. On the Bulging Battlefield, they are seen most often forcing food into their opponent’s gullets to leave them in food comas, flexing their strong capacities over the weak.

The Adicrats were a group of scholars and nobles who worked their ways to the upper echelons of civilization and lived glorious decadent lives. They housed themselves in the mighty shining towers and castles, opulent and proud. They ruled with powerful magic and knowledge. Though with time they settled down somewhat, falling into intense study and boundless despotism. Now their current governance has no need for such corruptible offices, letting these more brainy folk go on with their studying and merriment, despotism turning to endless hedonism. The delights of food can only go so far, as the boundless joys of flesh, flabbening people up through their magical prowess is all the style with them. They seek the quick and simple route, to blast their foes with magic and leave them a boundless blobby mass, to fondle and have as a centerpiece for conversations of course.

Though this contest really only determines who has bragging rights for the next few years, it is the height of importance to everyone in Sillisea. Surely the Vanguard getting involved won’t cause any upsets…

Carchdun Arena

The Chains of Glory

What happens when a good prize fighter is too valuable to lose? For a mighty empire, bloodsport is an easy way to keep the peace amongst a quarrelsome populace. Such an empire also has the power to ensure Gladiators they use for such bloodsport live long enough to ensure a return on their investment. The mighty Carchdun Arena was this very insurance, housing a powerful obelisk artifact that bound souls to it with strong magic. A fighter bound to this Obelisk is marked with chains along their wrists to represent their pact, and if they would fall in the arena, they will rise again the next day.

Of course, it wasn’t merely a prison. The chains were truly powered by glory. And so champions could earn their freedom through glorious deeds, mighty victories, or even well fought defeats. This came from the crowds that saw them battle, ones that are now lost to them.

The arena was the only part of Carchdun transported to this new place, leaving the current champions bound to it until they can earn freedom from glory generated only by the challenges their bound nature allows them to reach near the Arena, and by the same crowd of just their fellow fighters. At this rate, it may well take an eternity.

An Arena for Champions

In between Burning lava, everstorming mountains, rended earth, and shadowy marshes, the grand arena of dark stone perches on a spit of rock in relative safety between it all, Carchdun. It is from another world. The Arena itself is a large, foreboding construction of stone with several subfloors and ready rooms. It is capable of producing traps, holding areas for various beasties, and providing living space for the arena’s fighters and occupants. Bound to the stone before the arena itself vanished from their homeworld, the five champions became marooned in this new place, still bound to the rock below Carchdun.

It’s been centuries since the arena arrived here, but the champions have not earned enough glory to free themselves. They stay youthful despite the years, rising again each time they are killed. Glory is meant to be seen, with a roaring crowd vastly improving its gleam. Yet no audience came through when Carchdun vanished, and the few servants who lived there long ago left or died. Of course there is the matter of the opponent, and with only themselves to fight, the champions quickly learned that the Stone demands novelty, and fighting the same few beasts or bandits that wander by, let alone each other, gives little glory. Yet not all of them are waiting for the same amount. Each joined the arena at a different time, and are different amounts along their journey to freedom.

The Vanguard arriving, with the promise of return trips, can breathe new life into these Champions and their hopes to be free with the offer of loot from Carchdun’s vaults as recompense. However, each champion will offer their own complications.

The Champions

Fenna Foethrower [Minotar Barbarian]: A strong warrior, boisterous and a lover of the thrill of battle. She was the newest champion before Carchdun was pulled away, meaning she has the longest to go to gain her freedom. Fenna hopes to journey around Argonath once she’s free of the curse arm in arm with the champions she’s come to know so well.

Gardener [Warforged Druid]: Ancient even before the centuries spent in Argonath because he often refused to fight, Gardener gained freedom almost immediately after the champions arrived. He’s stayed ever since, a caring presence that also keeps the other Champions fed and hearty.

Lady Lunette Albignon [Human Paladin]: Freed any day now, Lady Lunette vowed to help the others gain freedom once she does, even if she aged and died here. While heartfelt in caring for her fellow prisoners, there is a darker stain. She knows Trouble killed her mentor long ago, before either became champions. Only once Trouble is free can Lunette kill her once and for all.

Trouble [Tiefling Sorcerer]: Abrasive and coy, Trouble is the most sick of this eternal exile and imprisonment. She seeks to be free, but only to finally continue a quest for power. She’ll use whatever means to free herself. However Trouble also has quite the habit of torturing and causing problems for the others, like a cat keeping itself amused. Who knows how being introduced to lipomancy might give them even better ways to play with others.

Tough Nut [Tabaxi Fighter]: Nut is an expert of fighting, and enjoys it not really for glory, but to completely and utterly dominate his foes. In fact, these last few centuries have been like paradise to him. Not only has he been able to hone in his craft, but has been able to explicitly learn his small cast of opponents. It’s comfortable. He’s actually the second closest to freedom at the moment, but actually wants to force them all to stay… somehow.

Catacomb

Ruined Catacombs of Valderban

In a deep section of woods set in a mountain valley, a huge sprawling ruin sits squat in the middle. The world it’s from is likely long forgotten, but it’s far from dead. The surface is not that impressive at all, but exploring into it reveals room after room of traps, guardians, and sometimes treasures to be found. Yet the place seems to have no end, each floor ends in some way to descend further, and even more rooms and floors beyond. With the threats also never ending, would it ever be possible to reach the bottom?

This place looks to be dead on the surface, with a biome much like the deadlands, with nothing but the occasional haunt of an undead creature, bubbles of necromantic power, and dead withered trees to mark it from above. Below this, a great sprawling multi level dungeon descends into the darkness below. Each layer contains some further evidence of the place this used to be, and some new strangeness. There are constructs, undead, and even the occasional extraplanar creature stashed in the winding corridors.

It turns out that these Catacombs used to serve as the heart of some ancient empire long fallen. This remnant has come to Argonath as a shard, serving as a deathtrap to any unfortunate explorer that might expect it to be an easy tomb to plunder. As with all such ruins though, that danger means they're largely untouched, and who knows what great treasures might await anyone able and willing to brave further and further depths.

Ancient Empire

The Ancient Valderban Empire that these ruins correspond to was vast, stretching over much of the world it came to conquer, led by one man who'd grasped at immortality through magic to see his empire through the ages. Unfortunately, it did not last quite as long as he'd hoped. What this empire was, and where it came from matters little in the context of the Shattered Lands. Whatever great territory it possessed is not here, and only the bones of what was are left to see what it was. As one explores though, it becomes clear that this wasn't an empire for the people, but one that took and conquered with brute force and magical power. The ruins reflect that, and the evil it spawned.

The Specter

When someone first approaches the surface portion of the catacombs, they may find themselves approached by a spectral figure, a ghost that haunts the ruins. This Specter will talk falteringly, as ghosts do, to try to explain the follies of the empire, and the various catastrophes that led to it's fall, as well as the various people that led it to that point. It's not that simple though, as each fragment of the story comes with each layer that adventurers can go through, with subsequent visits revealing more and more. Even the catacombs themselves encourage this revisiting nature, as each layer as a protective barrier preventing further travel. It fades in time, once the guardian of the current level has been defeated.

The Heart

The power source, and the cause for the catacombs being the way they are is the Heart of Valderban, as the specter will call it. Really, it's a powerful magical engine that's been corrupted by dark magics. It's what waits at the bottom of the Catacombs, after many tough battles and deep layers are beaten back to reveal it. Through this, certain truths are revealed that weren't immediately clear.

First is that the empire came to rely heavily on constructs and monsters to do their bidding, this led to the elite of the empire growing soft in more ways than one, indulging themselves in vast amounts of lipomancy that still permeates the ruins to this day. Vanguard exploring this place may find being immobilized within becomes as large a threat as the monsters they face as spectral remnants of the debauchery of the empire rise to meet them.

Indeed, spectral is the right word, as that is the second truth to be revealed, as the ruins grow more strange, and more abnormal. These are not physical tombs collected beneath the spacious undercroft of a ruined cathedral, but are real enough constructs and illusions created by the magical heart itself, endlessly playing out these repeat adaptations of the misery inherent to a collapsing nation.

The final trick is revealed when, upon being reunited with the heart, the Specter awakens to his true identity, that of Emperor Valderban himself, with all these trials being creations of his own tortured spirit, kept from true release by the magical artifact he was buried with. Only through his final defeat can the heart be removed, and the nightmare ended. Then one can see that these catacombs are nothing more than a single dusty tomb under a dilapidated church. Valderban is nothing more than its sole corpse.

Hopefully, Holmgard will find a better use for such a powerful magical artifact as this, and prevent repeating the mistakes of Valderban.

Already Dead This body is ephemeral, old as stones, and equally lifeless. The first time Valderban takes damage in a round, the damage is negated, along with any other effect of what caused the damage.

Weight of The Empire That which caused the collapse of the Empire is also a part of it's fallen emperor. Whenever Valderban fails a roll, all creatures within the Catacombs fatten equal to the result of the roll.

Turn Immunity Valderban is immune to effects that turn undead.

Legendary Resistance (2/day) If Valderban fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.

Reactions

Excuses It is easy to point to others when you have failed. When Valderban is struck by an attack, he can use his reaction after taking damage to swap places with one of the other shades of the Catacombs that he can see within 60ft.

Actions

Multiattack. Valderban makes two attacks with the Emperor's Hand, and one attack with either Grave Grasp or Catacomb chains if not already grappling a creature.

Emperor's Hand. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6+6) Slashing damage plus 7 (2d6) Fire damage. On hit, Target fattens equal to fire damage dealt.

Grave Grasp. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (1d8+6) Piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) necrotic damage. The target gains one point of corruption up to their character level.

Catacomb Chains. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 60ft Hit: 9 (3d4+2) Bludgeoning damage plus 3 (1d6) Necrotic damage. If hit, the target is grappled by the chains (escape DC 16) and pulled 30ft towards Valderban. If the creature is not within 5 ft of Valderban when he starts his turn, the chains pull the creature another 30ft closer.

Heart of The Empire

Valderban's final resting place is also the location of the object that began the fall of his empire. This Arcane battery called The Heart contains immense power that has been bent towards corruptive powers. It radiates that magic now, fully awakened, as it empowers the fallen emperor. When Valderban rolls initiative, the Sphere summons forth spectral versions of creatures previously fought in the Catacombs. They are identical aside from having half the health they normally do, and vanish on death.

Lair Actions

As long as Valderban is empowered by the Heart of the Empire, it's power pulses on initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), the Heart can take a lair action to cause one of the following magical effects; It can’t use the same effect two rounds in a row:

  • The heart let's out a shockwave of corruption, forcing each living creature in 100ft of it to make a DC 15 Wisdom Saving throw, with each effected creature gaining 2 points of corruption on a failure, or 1 on a success.

  • The Heart fills Valderban with dark power that radiates 15ft outwards from him in a protective cloak of fire and darkness. Each creature that starts it's turn in the area or enters it for the first time on their turn makes a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw or takes 2d6 fire and 2d6 necrotic damage, or half as much on a success.

  • The Heart vibrates intensely, and all those touched by corruption feel an answering hum in their chest. Creatures with points of corruption make a DC 15 Charisma saving throw or roll and activate any corruptions that have not already.

  • The Heart thrums with some of the lipomantic magic that originally gave it strength. All living creatures at 0 hit points immediately heal Hit Points equal to half their maximum health, but fatten equal to their first bulk limit.

Crankvale

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (82)

The Underground Refuge

The craglands are known for their hostile arid environment, food and water is scarce, while tall monsters prowl the surface looking for their next prey. In these conditions, civilizations are unlikely to thrive, but nothing is quite impossible as long as you put your mind to it. That’s the thought that permeated the mind of the founders of Crankvale.

Crankvale is a city of gnomes, living along the walls of a crevice on the region’s terrain, which they dug out to find, and with their skilled miners and architects, made many houses spread across using the very stone they were digging through. Their early leadership was pressed for resources, leading to rampant and reckless mining, as they tunneled everywhere, making the already unstable ground of the craglands even worse, so people walking along the surface will have to be wary of earthquakes in the region. The city was beginning to consolidate when they were plucked and dropped in the Shattered Lands, but that has been more than a few years past, a memory only known through their written history.

Xarhana’s Plan

Crankvale is currently led by Chief Xarhana. She’s a resourceful woman with a tactical mind, and very mindful of the city’s needs. It hasn’t been too long since she took the mantle, and she’s been making many changes about the way things are run. First, she’s started the mission to restructure the tunnels, giving them better foundation, closing off those that are unnecessary, and restricting new ones only when absolutely necessary, in hopes of diminishing the damage to the terrain that has assailed them in the past.

But there’s something more ambitious. With access to the records of earlier expeditions, she’s known for a while that a solo mission made before she took charge uncovered a source of ample food to the south, food which is seen as their hardest struggle with the scarcity of the craglands. That’s why she’s decided their one focus should be a tunnel in that direction.

The Gingerbread Dragon

As the expedition proceeds, the mining operation uncovers a section of the caves made of sweets from the intersection with a shard containing a biome made entirely of candy. Specifically, they find a complex of caves made of gingerbread, with matching gingerbread soldiers, each fully committed to expanding their domain in the underground.

Leading these gingerbread men is a creature known simply as the Gingerbread Dragon, who praises itself as the supreme mind above the Greater Candy Kingdom’s greatest intellectuals, it is stuck in the cave after a landslide closed the tunnel that connected its underground lair into the surface. It refuses to share its true name, thinking it too great to be heard by mortals. The Gingerbread Dragon’s great goal is to escape the cave and claim the throne of the Candy Kingdom, and it absolutely doesn’t care if it ends up demolishing the gnomes’ homes in the process.

Gingerbread Dragon

Legendary Resistance (1/day) If the Gingerbread Dragon fails a saving throw, it can choose to succeed instead.

Food Composition The gingerbread dragon is made of gingerbread. Any creature that hits the dragon with a bite attack eats 1d4 pounds of fatty food, doubled on a critical hit.

Lipomantic Form Any magic or effect that would feed or cause the dragon to gain weight instead makes it recover that amount as HP.

Crumbling Defenses The dragon’s natural defenses can be broken through. Its AC lowers by 2 when it falls below 80 HP, and then by 4 when it falls below 40 HP.

Crumbling Offenses When the dragon is hit by a critical hit, it must make a Constitution save with a DC equal to 8 + half the damage that attack deals. On a failure, any damage it deals with its claw or bite is halved on its next turn.

Actions

Multiattack. The dragon makes two attacks: one with its bite and one with its claw.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d10+4) Piercing damage plus 4 (1d8) Fatty Food damage.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d6+4) Piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) Fatty Food damage.

Candy Breath. The dragon exhales a 30-foot cone of a sweet mass of food. Each creature in the area must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, being forced to eat 14 (4d6) fatty food and gain four times that amount in weight, or half as much of both on a successful save.

Legendary Actions

The Gingerbread Dragon can take 2 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. The Gingerbread Dragon regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

Move. The Gingerbread Dragon moves up to its movement. This movement does not invoke attacks of opportunity, and can move through enemy spaces.

Claw. The dragon makes one claw attack.

Sweetened Halls

The Gingerbread Dragon’s lair has been its home for ages, and with the powerful influence its draconic origin holds, the dragon was able to contain it and shape it without even needing a thought. With its might and the cave’s obstacles working in tandem, those wishing to take on a fight will have to come well-prepared for a challenging fight.

Lair Actions

On initiative count 20 (losing initiative ties), the dragon takes a lair action; the dragon can’t use the same effect two rounds in a row.:

  • Fattening fog fills a 20-foot-radius sphere centered on a point the dragon can see within 120 feet of it. The fog spreads around corners, and its area is heavily obscured. Each creature in the fog when it appears must make a DC 10 Constitution saving throw, gaining 17 (5d6) pounds on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one. A creature that ends its turn in the fog gains 17 (5d6) pounds. A wind of at least 20 miles per hour disperses the fog. The fog otherwise lasts until any lair actions are used again or until the dragon dies.

  • Pieces of gingerbread fall from the ceiling, striking up to two creatures underneath that the dragon can see within 120 feet of it. The dragon makes one ranged attack roll (+6 to hit) against each target. On a hit, the target is forcefed 7 (2d6) pounds of fatty food.

Greater Candy Kingdom

The Candy Coup

To the south, past the unforgiving wastes of the crags, sits a land that seems idyllic, save for a few details. Large stretches of gentle rolling hills, dotted with farmlands and roads well worn. Great towering mountains dotted around, pillars striking up from the earth to the sky above. Lakes, creeks, and streams all feeding into one great lake, sparkling and blue, perfect for a swim. The perfect place to settle… If the entire lands were not made of candy. Well, it may just prove all the better for that fact.

These Candy Lands stretch out rather far, and encompass three major settlements, spaced out with stretches of tamed farmlands to unknown wilderness. There was likely far more to these lands, before it was pulled away from wherever it once was, and where it is now. The northernmost settlement is a small town of farmers, Twizzelton. To the East lies a fortress town, built around the main barracks of the area, Fort Fondant, with great powerful walls protecting a small fortress. Then the shining jewel of the Kingdom, the sprawling castle and city of Azucker.

All is not well in the kingdom, however, as a wicked usurper has upheaved the order in the kingdom, slaying the former king and has appointed herself as his successor, deeming herself empress with ambitions to squeeze as much as she can out from her people and situate herself as a powerful player in the shattered lands. Yet, rebellion brews in the hearts of many, as the Princess has not been seen in many weeks, but there have been no official accounts of her death. In truth, she lies in solitude in the woods not far from Twizzelton, praying for a miracle to save her Kingdom.

Oddities to The Candy Lands

While made of candy, most materials hold up compared to their otherwise ‘normal’ counterparts, save for the distinct weakness to being eaten. A blade made from hardened sugar glass can cut as well as steel, but given enough time goes down with orange flavouring. Additionally, the only magic that is native to these lands are that of Lipomancy, spells affecting the waistline are what the Candian’s are best known for, with any other schools of magic being rather foreign to them. They denote Lipomancy as the True Magic, while the newer schools are called the New Magic.

Princess Bethmännchen

Visiting the outskirt forests of the region, the party will meet with the princess, who keeps her identity a secret for now, unsure of who may be plotting against her. She isn’t all too subtle, often having unintended slips. Her house also proves to have a few relics that may denote her as royalty; a nearby chest, unfastened, holds her old gown and crown. The tea set she brings to the party is far too fancy for some peasant to have, and is decorated in the same manner as nobility would have back through the portal. Once she is found out, she is to panic, fearing for her life, but should more level heads prevail, she will calm herself, and speak of her plight.

Months ago, as the Kingdom had finally settled into a state of normalcy after being removed from their place in the realities, her Aunt, the duch*ess Stavia Sveet, made a jammy coup of the place, slaying those most loyal to the king, and then his majesty with her own blade. Only through the actions of Knight Commander Alexandertorte was she able to escape with her life, though the knight feigns allegiance with the queen. Now her people suffer unreasonable demands from the empress, as well as unconditional capture of those from the outside world for what she assumes to be magical experimentation, fusing the True Magic with the New. She hopes the party may extend their abilities into the Candy Lands, in hopes to provide her people liberation from tyranny.

The Princess is not without plans for this, as she understands her aunt well enough, as well as the weakened state she suffers through being cut off from the rest of the resources the Candy Kingdom could provide her. She is far outnumbered by those of the lower class, and should the party be able to rally the people against the queen, they would be able to dethrone her and get Beth back onto the throne. They would need the support of the people of Twizzelton, who are being taxed heavily by knights influenced with New Magics of Enchantment. Then get the word from Alexandertorte of military support. Next would be undermining the noble supporters of the Empress, to withdraw support for her once the revolution begins. Once everything would be set in place, she would have the party take on the task of defeating her aunt, and restoring her to the throne. Should the party accept, Beth will be pleased, and urge them on with the utmost of optimism and glee.

Beth herself is a patient, kind woman, a gentle soul who means no harm. She is rather useless when it comes to matters of violence, but is a good orator, and has a sound mind for leadership. She is generally unsure of herself, but is quick to gain confidence as her role becomes more of a necessity. One of the greatest flaws is that the princess has a hard time controlling herself with food from the outside worlds. She can handle the flavours of chocolate squash and sugar beets, but those flavours of savoury, sour, salty, bitter, she can’t get enough of! She especially adores savoury breads and meats, glutting herself with near abandon if provided with them. She may be a bit meek, but with gentle assurances she could be let loose, though her outfits may grow a bit tighter.

Empress Stavia Sveet

The newly crowned empress of the new Sveetian Empire, the Empress staged a great upheaval in the newly stabilized kingdom, slaying her brother-in-law and seizing power for herself with the assistance of nobility who she promised to broker far greater status in the new order she would provide. Vain and ambitious, she seeks to gain dominion over her lands, through learning and mastering the New Magic these lands provide her, and levying the unique resource that her lands provide to the outsiders, a near limitless source of food.

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (89)

The Empress herself is not without her own powers, being a skilled mage with a suitable talent and skill with heavy armor and a great candy greataxe. She favors the utilization of Enchantment magics to control those with weak minds, and Evocation for the raw destructive power that the True Magics can’t emulate. When not in battle, she is one to lavish herself in the best things life can provide her. Lavish dresses, fancy jewelry, fine meals, all at the expense of others around her. She abhors any threats to her own power, seeking to scrub the history books of any mention of the previous rulers, as well as her dear niece. A great haul of valuables denoting the old kingdom were unceremoniously dumped into a pit, and any who would raise dissent are thrown into the royal prison. Being a mage, she is one to enjoy study and research into the arcane, and those she captures serve as wonderful subjects for her to peer into the truth of the New Magic, and just how effective the True Magic would be on the outsiders.

The Empress takes stress with less grace than someone of her station should. She has a habit of overeating when faced with setbacks in her greater ambitions or when she is frustrated at issues that crop up. She does gain weight in a way rather befitting of her status, having what many would call an hourglass, though some may call it a more bottom heavy hourglass…

The Township of Twizzleton

This small settlement near the border of the Candy Lands is the perfect envisionment of what simple farm life many of the expedition forces recall from their old homes. A small settlement flanked by wide stretches of farmland growing a variety of sweet crops. The people of the town initially seem hesitant to interact with the party, as outside forces tend to have mixed reactions when interacting with the candy lands.

Mayor Muffintop will be the first to make contact with the adventurers. She is a pinkish sweet humanoid woman of a rather wide set figure, denoted by a pronounced muffintop. She holds a warm matronly air around her, as well as an authority that comes from leadership. She will try and figure out what the party may be visiting their town for. Should the party be seeking to assist the town as heroes do, she would advise the party to head to the woods to the west, as there tends to be sweet monsters and plenty to eat out in the forest. Should the party have met the Princess and inform the mayor of her plans to retake the city, they will be ushered into her private house for the group to discuss more freely.

The town is being taxed heavily by the capital, with a particularly cruel force of tax collectors arriving to either take food, goods, coins, or at times prisoners for the Empresses experiments. Muffintop will try to explain that they are not bad people, the head tax collector being her own sister, Lady Turnover. Since the takeover by Stavia, she had been taken to the capital, and when she returned she was wholly devoted to the tyrant and holds no care for the people she grew up with all her life. She suspects that there may be some kind of magic at play, and advises the party to try and handle the group with less than lethal tactics.

Tax Collector Turnover is a Diet Duelist, a knight specialized in stealing others' mass to empower their own strikes. The helm she wears causes her to be Charmed and under the direct command of the Empress. Removing the helm causes the magic to surge, causing others nearby to make a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw or be compelled by the helm to wear it and serve under the command of the Empress, but ends the charm on the Tax Collector. Turnover will arrive hoping for taxes from the town, but may be convinced to join the party for a meal or other feasible excuse of treatment for someone of her
status, which may prove to
give the party an
upper hand in their
combat.

When the
Tax Collector is
defeated she will
come to a short while
later, confused and
befuddled at what
had happened to her,
expressing no knowledge
of anything that had
happened. She will be
particularly surprised
at any gained weight she
experienced during her
time charmed. She
expresses remorse for
what she does, and seeks
to regain favor with her town
and sister for what she had
done, standing firm with the party
in their endeavors.

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (90)

With the town mostly free, some
taxes are to be taken still so as to not
draw the ire and attention of the capital, the
Mayor will offer to house the Princess. She can
ensure she is not identified by masquerading her as a common sodamaid, while still lavishing her in the care a proper princess should have, as well as a hefty heaping of country hospitality. She assures the party she will be safe, and can be a source of idle weight gain from the Princess who now has no worries on food availability and enjoys a far cozier life in the town rather than out in the woods.

Fort Fondant

Fort Fondant is the military heart of the Kingdom, housing many of the troops who train tirelessly in the arts of martial prowess and magic. Seeking out Knight Commander Alexandertorte can prove to be a difficult task, requiring a bit more of a stealthy approach to enter into the fortress. The great walls were designed to withstand just about any siege, but had no wards put up to prevent a group of hungry adventurers from eating through. The wall can be eaten at a rate of lbs per 10 lbs on a person. The higher the weight the wider of a hole they have to eat through the wall. Mundane means of breaking through prove noisy and can alert the whole fortress. Deception can be utilized as well, tricking the guards to allow the group in, though should they reveal themselves as outsiders they will be identified as the group the Empress wants imprisoned. Should the party find themselves imprisoned, they may simply eat their way through the jail and seek out Alexandertorte.

Alexandertorte sits on a throne at the height of the Fortress, looking rather forlorn as they forsook many of their oaths as a knight and have been sitting idly by as the Empress indoctrinates many to her cause while they know the true crown still lives. Should the party confront them, they find a rather lackadaisical figure stewing in their own despair, thinking there is no way for the empress to be defeated. They hardly believe the party should they explain the lofty goal of restoring Beth to the throne. They will challenge the party to a test of martial prowess to test their convictions and capability. Once bested, they regain some life in their eyes, as they realize that this ragtag group of outsiders may prove hope yet. They swear to support the party when the day of the revolution comes, readying a group of knights still loyal to the crown to hold off those compelled to serve or otherwise genuinely loyal at bay so they may confront the Empress.

Knight Commander Alexandertorte

An honorable knight of the Candy Kingdom’s Royal Army, they were a trusted figure to the rule of the late king. They were blindsided by the sudden betrayal and coup performed by the duch*ess Stavia Sveet, who vies for the crown. The king pleads for the Knight to hide his daughter away, to keep her alive while he tries to confront his murderous sister-in-law. Alexandertorte forgoes the defense of their king to protect the princess Bethmannchen, and ultimately bends the knee as the bloodied crown is placed upon Empress Sveets brow. Now they sit in Fort Fondant, stewing over their perceived betrayal of the royal family they served, watching as a tyrant tears down the kingdom they so loved. Perhaps the spark of rebellion can bring light and life into the knight's eye.

The Great City of Azucker

The heart of the Candy Lands, these marbled streets of pure sugar signal the center of society of these sweet lands. Great defensive walls ward away attackers, ancient streets hold buildings which have housed families for generations, and markets which have seen the rise and fall of many monarchs before them. The entryway is a bit of an oddity, newer construction against the aged sugarstone, as it seems nearly reminiscent of a toll booth. The party learns that outsiders are welcome to explore Azucker, for a fee. In her attempts to foster relations with some Outsiders, the Empress has nearly turned the great city to a tourist attraction, providing a highly guided tour of the Candian culture and cuisine, all while hiding the corruption and neglect the rest of the city faces behind polished chocolate. While touring, the party can break from their guide to pursue their own goals, be it freeing any captured allies, seeking out those who have a rebellious heart, or seeking to defeat or persuade the nobility who offer aid and support to the usurper.

Much of the nobility either cower in fear of the usurpers wrath or benefit greatly from her harsh rule. They live decadent and hedonistic lives in the higher sections of the city, off limits to most, but a group of great adventurers can break through. They confront with whatever nobility they wish, one faltering will likely lead to many others joining in their stead. The Dairy duch*ess stands out as a figure to pursuit, being a woman of iced-creams and haughty persona, she launches a chilling assault on the party as a food based spellcaster, but proves to not be that grave of a threat.

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (92)

Captured in Azucker

The prisons in Azucker are candy, much like any others in the candy land, and thus prove to not be impossible to eat your way out of… Should you have the stomach for it. The Queens researchers and mages spend great amounts of time testing the limits on outsiders, often keeping them overly stuffed with foods in a knowing attempt to halt escape, as well to see how they metabolize their lands. Along with the passively fattening air of the candy lands, it is a recipe for many a would-be hero to fall prone on their own blobby rears. The mages are pushovers, mostly capable of handling the odd out-of-breath landwhale who gets it in their head they could charge the hapless scientists.

This area does hold many enchanted food items, as well as a few adventurers from neighboring regions who are all too eager to waddle on home, or perhaps stay for just a while longer.

Confronting Stavia Sveet

The day will arrive when the people are fed up, the nobility stop their support, and the revolution comes. Beth will want to accompany the party as they storm the castle, though can be easily persuaded to stay behind in the safety of her knights. The fighting in the castle is fierce, but so long as they have the support of their allies they should be able to access the Empress with little opposition. The Empress stands ready in the throne room, though not as helpless as she may have seemed at first glance. Great gleaming Sugarsteel Plate armor, and a massive regal lolly-axe in hand, the Empress is a skilled mage-blade, a heavily armored knight with skills of magic.

Once Stavia is beat, Beth will pursue the party to spare her aunt. While a horrible criminal and murderer of her father, she still believes the woman to be in need of a trial before being put to death, and should the court find it needed, imprisoned instead of put to death. The party could heed her, but should they end the Jam-soaked Empress, Beth will not hold it against them. Beth herself will not kill her Aunt.

Aftermath

In the coming weeks, the embers of rebellion and the jubilance of celebration will simmer to an optimistic eagerness for the future. Beth now sits on the throne, gleaming in a brilliant white dress and calm demeanor. While she does not feel fully ready for her responsibility, she takes it with grace, and leads the lands well. Inexperienced as she is, she is able to manage the reduced candy lands and undo the damages her Aunt had befell the kingdom. The party may visit the now Queen Bethmaennchen to chat and share a meal, or be given further quests to aid in those who still hold loyalty to the Empress or the other candy threats of the lands. Though the great political issues of these lands still linger, they are not without plight. Nothing their own knights can’t handle, but assistance is always appreciated.

With an alliance between the Candy Lands and Holmgard established, the Candy Lands send readily abundant supplies of sweets and candies, in hope that some of it may be useful in their own construction, or at the very least, be a yummy treat for those who have escaped the apocalypse.

Mistvale

Clouds of War

The chaotic nature of Argonath is something its denizens will quickly familiarise themselves with. It is a place of boundless opportunities, but also a land which could turn against you. Such was to be proven once more in this seemingly endless realm as two factions would become embroiled in a war they did not expect.

But what is such conflict waged over? A land nurtured by great magic and toil of hand to create a paradise in the image of a people who wish to call it home. Known as the Mistvale, this rich and flourishing land had known tranquillity for a long time. This peace, however, would be brought to an end by the shifting currents of Argonath…

As new people became unexpected neighbours, they found themselves falling onto a slippery slope… Before anyone knew it, a struggle for power had begun. One civilisation seeking to defend its secrets and wealth from those who coveted them, both out of need and greed alike. But where did it begin? Few remember, for they have fought for so long… Could the truth ever be uncovered?

What was hoped to be a conflict which would be won with decisive strikes would turn into a war of attrition, with neither side relenting, nor able to back down. Thus, the war has endured for years, with both sides adapting their tactics and arsenal to last. Will the arrival of an unexpected faction put an end to this conflict? Or deepen it?

A gifted civilisation

Rising from the murky depths of Argonath’s tideless sea, a race would emerge which was adept at living both on the land and under the sea. Their origin and history is known only to them and witnessed by the depths, but the ambition of the sea elves would have them reach beyond the comforts of their aquatic homes.

Under the guidance of a great arcanist, Kailene the Shimmering, the sea elves had moved to pioneer a place to call their own beyond the reach of the sea breeze, to shape a land to be a paradise in their own image. For many a decade, they had known prosperity. A land of balance, of peace, in which elven arts and nature’s beauty would flourish. But such tranquillity would soon end, as Argonath’s astral currents would shift once more…

A brilliant mind and a great Arcanist, Kailene had risen to prominence with her research in elemental magic, but her crowning achievement would become the ability to tap and purpose lipomantic energy. And yet, amidst all this chaos, the beloved Arcanist, who had gifted the sea elves this home and for whom they fight proudly, seems to have vanished, leaving the defence of the land in the hands of an elven warrior, tempered in the heat of war… Daeliah the Patient, her name spoken with hope. But would this be enough to defy the ambition and cunning of her foe?

A taste for power

Through mysterious ways, a grey mountain had appeared above the lands of Mistvale, merging with furious rumbling and earthquakes. These peaks, desolate and with ashen winds, were the home of a great dragon. Yrsyth the Greedy, once a great dragoness, fancying herself to be a mistress of magic, had emerged from the mountains, with swats of kobold minions and elemental fury to enact her will.

A dragon of lipomancy, Yrsyth’s name comes from tales which none seem to know of, save her loyal kobold legions. One thing is certain, however. She covets powers, wealth and magic with an unmatched greed and a will to have it all. Her body is a living testament to the opulence she commands, both in riches worn and in the weight she carries imperiously.

Although her reach is greater than her claws, her will is not the only one. For war sharpens minds and hardens hearts in those who are fortunate to survive it. Will such diamonds in the rough be uncovered amongst the many kobolds?

A land shaped by magic and might

The Mistvale is a land of natural beauty to those who are new to it. However, they will quickly learn that this nature is altered by great magic, propagated from the Tower of the Grand Arcanist. Signs will become noticeable the more one ventures in these parts: There is no day or night cycle here. The sky is an ever changing shade of pink and orange, reminding ones of sunsets from other worlds. The sun itself can be seen now and then, faded, but still shining. There is no rain or snow here, only clear skies with barely a cloud in sight. Those not adept to the sunlight will find that their vision is not impaired or harmed by this light, for it is not as bright. The mist itself feels soothing, cool to the touch, with wounds and pain seeming to heal quicker. Flames seem to die out more quickly unless tended to diligently.

The land itself has been shaped for many decades by the sea elves to provide for their people, and by two more decades of war… Despite the conflict, the land bares only a few visible scars of conflict, but one would be careless to think fighting does not continue beneath the verdant canopies and behind hills.

Shifting tides of war

War is messy business. Ever changing, ever shifting… Wills are made and broken in it, lives undeniably changed by it. Such is the experience the Vanguard of Argonath will come to find. Whether they simply bear witness, or seek to be a catalyst in this war, their actions may come to define a war in which moral codes can become ever turbulent.

The conflict in Mistvale has dragged on for years. Hearts have become hardened and for many this conflict has become a central part of their lives and memories. The sea elves fight a desperate battle of attrition against those they perceive as invaders, using their knowledge and crafts to last for as long as they can. Yrsyth’s army is loyal and tested in conflicts unknown to Argonath. Through a combination of enforced fealty and desperation, they stand together, having pushed the sea elves to the brink.

Although a lot of the fighting is obscured amidst the roiling hills and the enchanted mists, the conflict has currently reached a stalemate, with each side looking for openings to weaken the other, whilst preserving their own strength. The Kobold war machine endures and refines with riches and souls born from beneath the earth, whilst the sea elves continue to replenish and regrow with support from beneath the tides.

From strategic fortifications, the current acting leader of the Sea Elves, Daeliah, seeks to protect all of their land and to strike at her foe with guile. The Kobolds, lead by the cunning dragoness, Yrsyth, have launched repeated offensives over the last few years. Despite a lot of turmoil and setbacks, the kobold’s efforts are paying off, and the dragoness seeks to gather her precious prize: to pry open the magically-shielded tower and take its riches for herself. Will this gambit succeed? Or will it be just another turning point?

Despite her pride and arrogance, Yrsyth is not invincible. The sea elves have proven this on quite a few occasions, with valour and tenacity. Her kobolds remain loyal, and despite the dragoness’ mastery of elemental magic and lipomancy, it falters in comparison to what the elves can bring. Beneath the facade of devotion, there are those amidst her ranks who seek respite from conflict. Will these hidden hopes surface, or will they be buried beneath rubble or flab?

Of course, neither side could expect a new faction mad enough to venture through the chaotic planes of Argonath. But would they be friends or foes? Each faction can make for strong allies and provide suitable rewards and each will test the will of the Vanguard repeatedly. Could this conflict end with the slaying of a great beast? Or will it be through negotiations, as history has borne witness time and again? And what of the vanquished and scarred?

There are many actors who take part in this war, willingly or otherwise. Each with their own motivations and desires. Many go on to be mostly unknown, but there are some who rise to great renown and who become defining names in history. Many tales can be spun, some true, some fabulous or unbelievable, for different eyes will see different shades.

Actions

Dagger. Melee Weapon Attack: +6, reach 5 ft. or range 20/60 ft. if thrown, one target. Hit: 4 (1d4+2) piercing damage.

Kailene the Shimmering

The grand arcanist of Mistvale is revered as a great hero and benefactor by the sea elves, although she has seemingly done next to nothing in the conflict. In truth, her experimentation with lipomantic energies have left her severely corrupted by it, something she herself doesn’t even seem to care about just now. Perhaps it will take the whole of her dreams and schemes to come crashing down around her to finally have her snap out of her gluttony and haughty attitude.

Yrsyth the Greedy

The dragoness herself poses a great danger to anyone she will fight with. Although not as strong as others of her kind, she bears the force of will and cunning of her species. Unlike others lipomantic dragons, however, she has grown soft and far too greedy for her own good. Despite these glaring weaknesses (which she’ll never admit to), she is gifted in the ways of magic. Most of the time, she uses it to provide food, water and treats for all of her kobolds, as well as for herself, leaving her drained a bit. But she has become quite proficient at commanding elemental magic. She seeks to become more powerful at this, and her sights are set on the secrets of Kailene the Shimmering.

Legendary Resistance (1/Day). If the dragoness fails a saving throw, she can instead choose to succeed.

Lipomantic Conduit. Attacks or magic that would cause Yrsyth to gain weight, inflate, eat, or invoke Ravenous are made with advantage, and she rolls saving throws at disadvantage against such spells and effects.

Corrupted Glutton. If Yrsyth is less than half-full, she will become Ravenous until her stomach is at least half full.

Innate Spellcasting. Yrsyth's spellcasting ability is Charisma (DC 19 & +11 spell attack modifier). She can innately cast the following spells, requiring spell no components:

Slavering Presence. Each aware creature of Yrsyth’s choice within 120 feet of the her must succeed on a DC 19 Wisdom saving throw or become Ravenous for 1 minute. A creature can repeat the saving throw at the end of each of its turns, ending the effect on a success. The effect ends if that creature would take over-stuffing damage. If a creature's saving throw is successful or the effect ends for it, the creature is immune to the Yrsyth’s Slavering Presence for the next 24 hours.

Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +11, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6+6) slashing damage.

Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +11, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 17 (2d10+6) piercing damage plus 4 (1d8) force or necrotic damage. Target fattens for double damage dealt if hit with force damage OR slims for twice the damage dealt if hit with necrotic damage, with Yrsyth gaining the lost weight.

Fattening Breath (recharge on 5-6). The dragoness exhales smoke imbued with lipomantic energy in a 90 foot cone. Each creature caught in the breath attack must make a DC 20 Dexterity saving throw, taking 56 (16d6) Force damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful save. All targets fatten for twice the damage taken and must make a DC16 Wisdom saving throw, gaining 1 points of corruption on a failure.

Legendary Actions

Yrsyth the Greedy can take 3 legendary actions, choosing from the options below. Only one legendary option can be used at a time and only at the end of another creature's turn. The Yrsyth the Greedy regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.

All creatures within 15 feet of the dragoness must make a DC 19 Strength save or be pushed away 10 feet from Yrsyth and be knocked prone. This will also disperse all fog and gas clouds which can be dispersed by strong wind around her. Yrsyth may then fly up to half of her flying speed.

Amphibious. The sea elf can breathe air and water.

Fey Ancestry. The sea elf has advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can't put the sea elf to sleep.

Lipomantic Heart. Daeliah’s heart is replaced by a magical device which can channel and absorb lipomantic energies. Should this device ever stop working, Daeliah will die. As long as it works, she gains advantage on all Constitution checks and saves. If she starts her turn at under half of her total hitpoints and she has at least 1 hitpoint remaining, Daeliah will heal for 8 hitpoints. However, she receives disadvantage on saves against spells and effects that would stuff her with food and attacks that would feed her food are made with advantage. When reduced to 0 HP, Daeliah will fall unconscious and stabilise, as her heart engages an emergency protocol, causing her to teleport to safety with an explosive effect. Her body will start to glow pink, a burst of lipomantic energy engulfing her, before she is teleported away. All creatures within 5 feet of Daeliah when this happens need to make a Dexterity saving throw (DC 14) or take 4d4 force damage, and get knocked prone. Damage is halved on a successful save. All those damaged by this effect fatten for 5 times the damage taken.

Actions

Multiattack. Daeliah may perform 3 melee attacks with her Elven Warblade. She can replace one of them with a either a Lipomantic Shock or a Lipomantic Touch

Elven Warblade. Melee Weapon Attack: +8, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) slashing damage plus 3 (1d6) Lightning damage. At Daeliah’s choice, the target could be fattened or slimmed equal to the total damage dealt. This attack is done with a magical weapon.

Lipomantic Shock. Ranged Spell Attack: +8, range 120 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (3d10) lightning damage. At Daeliah’s choice, the target could be fattened or slimmed equal to 3 times the damage dealt.

Lipomantic Touch. Melee Spell Attack: +8, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (3d8) lightning damage. If hit, the target loses its reaction. At Daeliah’s choice, the target could be fattened or slimmed equal to 3 times the damage dealt.

Lipomantic Kinesis (Recharges on 6). As an action, Daeliah starts to chant a spell meant to protect herself and her allies within 15 feet of her, centered around her. Until the start of her next turn, all targets in the area of effect of this ability, of Daeliah’s choosing (including herself) will gain resistance to any damage they take. However, all the damage resisted gets redirected to Daeliah, causing her to swell with fat. She Fattens equal to five times the damage she prevents. This effect ends early if Daeliah is incapacitated or immobilized.

Reactions

Lipomantic Surge (3/day). If Daeliah would take over-stuffing damage, her Lipomantic Heart would overcharge, immediately digesting all food in her stomach and fattening her for 1d6 lbs of fat per pound of food digested this way. She will also heal 1 hit point per pound of food digested this way.

Magical Deflection. As a reaction to being hit by an attack, Daeliah can attempt to deflect it, raising her AC by +3 against that single attack, potentially turning it into a miss.

Daeliah the Patient

Acting as the leader of the sea elf forces in Mistvale, Daeliah stands as a symbol of hope and strength for her people. Others who have spent time with her would remark how she seems inexhaustible in her resolve, as well as her stamina. Some of the more inquisitive warriors may notice how her fighting style seems different, with her more focused on taking blows as well as landing heavy strikes with her war blade, instead of the usual graceful combat style favoured by her fellows.Personality-wise, Daeliah tends to wait and speak only what is necessary. Despite being called "the Patient", she is a relaxed person, enjoying a good feast and a friendly challenge. Some might be unnerved by how calm she can be, despite how dire the situation might appear, with some praising her cool head as the mark of a great leader.

Puratov

Puratov’s Home for the Incurably Dereganed

The frigid Kingdom of Puratov and the surroundings of white, snow-dappled forests have very recently been displaced and relocated to Argonath. Puratov is a busy, bustling land packed to the brim with primarily humans. Other races also can be found here, but most citizens are of the human variety. Almost all wear large, thick clothes and heavy furs to keep up against the region’s oppressive, below-freezing air. While no official uniform exists, nearly all Puratovians wear almost exclusively dark browns and reds. Because of the weather, most citizens cover their faces, making them all look almost identical. Their houses are sturdy wooden sanctuaries with thick woolen rugs and fireplaces that light up their frozen home. Each house was built with an emphasis on keeping out the cold.

Most buildings around Puratov are humble, but towering above the rest is a massive spectacle of a castle in the kingdom's center. Massive pillars shoot up into the sky with brilliant purples and blues wrapping around each one as they disappear into the clouds above. The castle is a lavish display of wealth and power beyond what most people have seen. The excessive golden monument is a literal shining

beacon that can be seen all throughout the central

capital city of Borovo. In the center of this golden

expanse lives the ruler of this frozen land.

Tsar Malikov II.

Tsar Malikov II

Tsar Malikov is a grand and influential man in his late 60s. With light, pale ivory skin and dark brown hair that has already begun to gray. While no longer in his prime, as a younger man, he was a soldier, and it shows. With broad, muscular shoulders, a presence about him that can only be described as overbearingly structured, and scars from his time as a soldier still visible on his body, it’s clear that even in his old age, his strength and presence on the battlefield haven’t left him. Following in the footsteps of many generations of men before him, he took the throne after his father’s passing. Since then, he has ruled over Puratov with an iron fist. He is strict, decisive, ruthless, and cold, just like the surrounding area. Still, he is a grand symbol of power, and under his rule, he has brought their freezing Kingdom to a new level of prosperity never seen by them before.

A New Home in Argonath

Now, the people of Puratov face a threat they have never encountered: the wilds of Argonath. Tsar Malikov II instructed his citizens to stay inside the Kingdom at all costs. They do not know what lies in the new area surrounding them, and it is safer for everyone if they don’t find out. However, they are now facing a threat from the inside. Something, or someone, has already infiltrated the Kingdom.

You see, not all of Puratov made it to Argonath. Only a sizable chunk of the kingdom, with the rest being left behind on their home continent of Yelgar. Luckily, while most of the capital and the grand, central castle were largely unharmed by the sudden shift of realms, the area around the split wasn’t so lucky. Buildings were cut in half, and many were destroyed by the move here. Including one very significant building. Puratov’s Home for the Incurably Deranged.

This building was a large stone prison that held people too dangerous to be left to roam the Kingdom of Puratov. Whether by magic, weapons, or just their bare fist, they have proven to be a threat to civilians and must be put away for the sake of everyone else. Unfortunately, now that the seal has been broken, the prisoners have been freed to roam and cause havoc. Tsar Malikov II, busy with all the other complications that come with your Kingdom suddenly being picked up and moved elsewhere, has given someone else the task of dealing with the runaways. His own son, Tsarevich Galerkin.

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (93)

Tsarevich Galerkin

Tsarevich Galerkin is a vapid, arrogant young man in his mid-20s. With light blonde hair and the same pale skin as his father, he lives in the shadow of the Tsar. He’s a small, skinny young thing without the presence and know-how of his father. Everyone in the Kingdom can see that he is a sorry excuse for a ruler to be. Even he can see it. Not that anyone would tell him, of course. After all, he is still the Tsarevich; when his father passes, he’ll be in charge for better or worse.

But now he has a chance to prove himself to the rest of the people of Puratov. Solving the problem given to him by his father would show them that he is, in fact, capable of taking on an immense task and doing what needs to be done. That one day, when he takes over, he’ll make a good ruler and carry on the legacy of his father and ancestors. Tsarevich Galerkin will make his father proud and solve the problem of Puratov’s Home for the Incurably Deranged.

Discovering the Secrets of Puratov

As you learn more of the city of Puratov, it becomes increasingly clear that the asylum is not what it’s cracked up to be. It becomes increasingly apparent that the asylum is not a place where they send people who are a threat to others; it’s a place where they send people who disobey the Tsar’s orders. The asylum itself is nothing but a threat to the people of Puratov. A warning about what might happen if they step out of line.

You learn that many of the stories of Tsar Malikov II were made up to convince a largely poor and uneducated populace of the grand exploits of the Tsar. The Kingdom is not, in fact, in a new level of prosperity. Its wealth was declining even before the sudden shift to Argonath. Also, Tsar Malikov II didn’t take the throne from his father but took it over decades ago in a bloody coup. The people of Puratov are either unaware of the true history or silenced by the threat of the Home for the Incurably Deranged.

Eventually, the young royal concludes that his father must be stopped. Despite not wanting to believe it at first, the evidence is overwhelming. His father is evil. There is no doubt about it. To save the people of Puratov means ending his father’s reign once and for all. Perhaps one day he will again ask for Holmgard’s help dispatching his father, Tsar Malikov II.

Serene Arborium

The Arborium

Near the settlement of Holmgard, the forest begins to shift into dappled strange colors, and the air feels energized. One could swear that the sounds of giggling echo from unseen figures among the twisting trunks, beckoning that one explore further. When they do, elements already present in other parts of the forests are more pronounced here in this clearly fey influenced grove.

That influence is of course Lipomancy, present throughout the whole shard, but concentrated here. There is a fey court here, powerful and deeply seated in that lipomantic power. If one survives the calorific slime dripping vines, tricky lesser fairies, and lardening streams of magic water, they would eventually arrive at the center, the court itself. This is the Serene Arborium, a garden-like, sprawling estate of pale white stone and verdant colored accents intermixed among the trees and plant life.

Fey creatures of all kinds walk the pleasant courtyards and play among the boughs above. Yet only one figure commands attention no matter where she is. Lady Pendula is the Queen of this court, a towering nine foot tall fey of extremely feminine curves barely disguised by narrow strips of pale fabric intermixed with shining golden jewelry. Flowing evergreen hair filled with flowers reaches down to a lower half that clearly gives credence to her connection to lipomancy with its width and softness.

In the eaves, and under some overhangs are figures that look much more mortal and fey, and also much fatter. Many don’t even look able to move. Yet on further investigation, this isn’t a cruelty of Pendula, but rather caretaking. These are figures who’ve stumbled into her Arborium over the years, fallen victim to either the intense effects of the fey woods, or the less, if still potent, effects in the woods as a whole. Not merely captives, these fleshy forms are instead people who either thought the cost of losing weight was not worth it, or simply wished to remain in the Lady’s care. She can be rather persuasive after all.

Lady Pendula

Lady Pendula is the Queen of the Serene Arborium Court, a towering nine foot tall fey of extremely feminine curves barely disguised by narrow strips of pale fabric intermixed with shining golden jewelry. Flowing evergreen hair filled with flowers reaches down to a lower half that clearly gives credence to her connection to lipomancy with its width and softness.

Her court has been present in this shard since it was pulled from her homeworld hundreds of years ago. Pendula has been more than happy to stay in Argonath with how unique the mixture of worlds is, an endless line of new experiences. She’s very familiar with Lipomancy, especially in how it expresses itself among the fey, with her mother-like personality, she’s often quite enamored with sharing it with others.

Pendula of course knows of Holmgard, and to some extent has gathered their purpose, seeking to talk to any explorers that wander into her glade. She’s not bothered by their settlement, and is actually rather curious to see how settling in such a lipomantic rich area will affect them in turn. Of course, to encourage cooperation Lady Pendula does have a task for any who'd come to see her.The goblins in another part of the Forest of Holmgard are rather troublesome to Queen of the Arborium. She considers them disruptive to the nature of the shard, and would see them dealt with. If this is done, the Lady will of course be thankful. Perhaps even willing to grace those that'd see her with a fraction of her lipomantic power, either to help... or if they wish, to hinder them.

A wonderful relationship

The Fey court of the Arborium is one of whimsey, wonder, and indulgence. There is little in the way of true problems that need solving, which is likely a good thing for as close as the place is to Holmgard proper. Still, this place would serve as a wonderful source of indulgence for anyone who might want to wander in, or come looking for help with their weight. The Lady of the Arborium, and many of her fey, are more than happy to show anyone who comes a good time.

If Holmgard lasts, and grows to encompass more of the Holmgard Shard, who is to say how that relationship with the close proximity of the fey might deepen. Though there is a danger in the Arborium, hidden deeply within. Lady Pendula is a kind soul, compassionate and always insistent on the comforts of those around her. However, she was not always this way. If something were to try to corrupt the Queenly fey, or feed her darkest impulses again and again, something might just awaken in the court of the Arborium that would be chaotic for anything near her forested home.

Forlorn Tower

Argonath Content for ED&D by deator (95)

Tower of Champions

In the wintry woods not far from Holmgard a great spire stands alone in the skyline, far above the trees. Those who draw closer can make out the remains of some old tower. Its age is evident in the missing stones and lack of any light. Upon entering the tower however, it may not be totally abandoned. Lights remain on the first floor, however there is no clear way to traverse further up the tower.

Above the ground floor, there are many floors that each provide some insight into what kind of place the tower may have been back in its prime. From the undead, to great constructs, there are many enemies that have taken up residence in the tower. However, there is a reason for all these enemies.

These floors are actually separated magically and are inaccessible without the assistance of Tony. They lie in entirely different spaces that what they appear, and travel between each floor can be nauseating.

Tony The Flameskull

Upon entering the tower, the first creature that will greet the party will be a flameskull. His purpose is to administer tests of courage and bravery to adventurers and warriors in the form of trials. Each floor contains different challenges and enemies that the adventurers will have to overcome and for each success they will be granted rewards and loot for their success.

The flameskull lacks any memory of itself or the history of the tower, only knowing that it serves some unknown entity. It will elect for any name or nickname the party chooses, in this case being Tony. The flameskull may be dead, but that doesn’t mean it has lost it’s wit and joy for comedy. It can be a bit unhinged at times and may struggle to reel itself in.

As the adventurer’s progress through floors of the tower, Tony will begin to believe in hope that they may be able to finish the tower and get to the top. The flameskull can recall there being something important to him at the top. What is actually waiting up there are his journals, which detail exactly how all of this came to be.

A Terrible Mistake

When the flameskull was a living man, Tony was a great and powerful wizard studying the applications of lipomancy with his loving wife. Curious and pushing the limits of his abilities, he began to look for help. He found a contact that promised it could help him with what he wanted. The entity was Uhrzogath The Sculptor, a powerful corrupter and aberration that killed Tony and bound his soul to servitude to serve its own designs.

Uhrzogath developed the challenge hoping to draw in other powerful spellcasters and warriors to experiment on and add to its growing collection of trophies. It administered Tony to carry out its will, designing the trials and using Tony’s existing creations and experiments to set loose in the tower.

Uhrzogath the Sculptor

The corrupter known as Uhrzogath prided itself on sculpting its victims to its own image which it usually considered much larger than their original size. Seeing itself as an artist that lacked canvasses, it devised the challenge and lure of loot to draw in victims.

Reunited At Last

Upon Uhrzogath being defeated, the mystic magic of the tower faded, returning it to a mundane tower. Tony was freed from his servitude and learned who he was. Recalling his dead wife and their time together, he was ready to be free of the curse of undeath. He was allowed to pass into the afterlife with the aid of the adventurers who helped him one last time by pouring holy water onto him allowing him to join his wife in the afterlife.

After these events, paintings and decorations had returned to the tower depicting Tony and his wife happy together. Of course, as their love grew, so did his wife. This journey was wonderfully depicted in the many paintings throughout the tower that told of a story that once again had a happy end and closure to the life of Tony.

Psionic Grasp. Melee Weapon Attack: +6, reach 10 ft., one target. 14 (4d4+4) psychic damage. The target is grappled (Escape DC 14). The feeder can have two creatures grappled in this way.

Feeding Tendril. The Feeder administers a strange mixture of hormones that cause the target to grow dazed and sluggish, unwilling to fight back. One creature grappled by the Feeder must succeed on a DC 13 constitution saving throw or be poisoned for 1 minute. Until this poison ends, the target has 2d4 lbs of fatty food added to their stomach at the start of their turn. The target may remake the save at the end of its turn, ending on a success or when they fall unconscious from overstuffing damage.

Eldritch Feeder

Strangers to this world, these invaders from beyond the stars come as a force subservient to those of greater power. These drones follow the command of those greater than them, with a specialty in subduing and incapacitating others with psionic assaults and copious amounts of food. Their tendrils contain a strange mixture of chemicals that, when ingested, causes a target to fill up with food from nowhere. Once their target is properly subdued, they may haul back whatever quarry they find for their masters needs.

*Magic Resistance The Fatkeeper has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Telekinetic The Fatkeeper is always under the effects of the Telekinesis spell, being able to use it without concentration. Due to the psionic nature of this effect, it is unaffected by effects or spells that would nullify magic (Such as Dispel Magic or Anti-Magic Field). Additionally, its fly speed is not reduced if it is Immobile.

Telekinetic Feeder The Fatkeeper can use its Telepathy to force feed creatures within range, so long as it has food in reach. They use Intelligence (Arcana) to calculate how much they can force feed in a single action.

Psionic Caster The Fatkeeper’s spellcasting ability is Intelligence (Spell Save DC 17, +9 to hit with spell attacks). It can innately cast the following spells with only Verbal components. Additionally it cannot be halted from magic canceling effects (Such as Counterspell, Anti-magic field, dispel magic):

  • At Will: Calm Emotions, Detect Thoughts
  • 3/day each: Abyssal Stomach, Fat Surge
  • 1/day each: Create Fatty Food and Drink

Actions

Multiattack. The Fatkeeper can make two Telekinesis actions and or psionic beam attacks

Subduing Beam (Recharge 6). The Fatkeeper launches a beam of subduing energies, lulling a target into a peaceful rest, to be either fattened, fed, or otherwise moved. A target must succeed a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw or be knocked Unconscious for the next minute. A creature can be woken up by another creature by taking an action to shake them awake,or if they take damage (from a source other than overstuffing).

Telekinesis. The Fatkeeper uses an effect from Telekinesis.

Psionic Beam. Ranged Weapon Attack: +9, range 30 ft., one target. Hit: 17 (5d6) psychic damage.

Fatkeeper

From beyond the stars are the aberrations, unknown in their intentions and unfathomable in their intent. The horrific Mindflayers, the baleful beholders, the abhorrent aboleths. This strange creature counts itself among the many from beyond the stars, brought on a ship that sails the skies. What does it want from those of Argonath? To harvest their minds for food, to enslave them as thralls, or simply to obliterate them? None of those, in truth. Its alien mind finds a unique form of contempt for mortals. It simply finds them adorable, and seeks to collect the finest specimens as pets. It has a rather trivial understanding of any of the prime materials that make up this land, and thus its care for the humanoids it keeps is rather poor. The main way that it manifests this is in its poor portion control for its newfound pets. It doesn’t seem to mind how fat it's pets get, as it finds them all cuter for it. Now it spends time collecting humanoids to keep; a new two tonne addition to its collection.

Actions

Beak Melee Weapon Attack: +5, reach 5 ft., one target. 10 (2d6+3) bludgeoning damage.

Giga Dodo

Large flightless birds found throughout the lands. These birds have been blessed with unique lipomantic energies which protect them from many mundane threats. Without worry from a majority of predation, they are rather dull and seem unafraid of creatures smaller than or equal to them in size. People tend to use these creatures much akin to chickens, harvesting their eggs and (with some difficulty) harvesting their meat. They taste quite delicious, their meat being fatty and easy to cook.

Gummy Bat Swarm

Actions

Bites. Melee Weapon Attack: +3, reach 0 ft., one target. Hit: 10 (4d4) piercing damage.

Bites (half health). Melee Weapon Attack: +3, reach 0 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (2d4) piercing damage.

Merge. The gummy bats flock against one creature within its space, attempting to merge their fattening substance into them. The target makes a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw, on a failure they fatten 4d10lbs as the little jellies turn into fat. On a success they fatten half as much. In either case the swarm loses 3d4 hitpoints.

The target makes a DC 11 Dexterity saving throw, on a failure they fatten 2d10lbs as the little jellies turn into fat. On a success they fatten half as much. In either case the swarm loses 2d4 hitpoints.

Gummy Bat Swarm

Beasts of sweets, these bats form a horde of gummy doom that flitter through the air and seek out empty bellies. Much like all Gummy creatures, these beasts have the inexplicable urge to add to their foes their own mass, to make them grow fat and heavy. To what ends is still unknown, yet they are notably well suited to their task. This swarm of bats works as a unified team, but with enough effort they may be dispersed.

Primal Shrimp

Rising from the depth, these creatures are fearsome in their demeanor, though delicious in their flavor. The Primal Shrimp are territorial and feisty, but not the worst to take out. A delicacy in any culture where they can be found, so long as they can actually manage to take them down. Their propensity to stay out of reach and use attacks from range makes them a slippery target. Keeping them from fleeing in the water and striking them hard and fast is the easiest way to make a lovely meal.

The primal shrimp looks like your typical shrimp, thought with a more lobster like body when on land. It has two claws, one being far larger, full of muscles pulled tight until it pulls the trigger to release its devastating snap. Its shell ranges from pink to iridescent blue.

Primal Boar

In the deep old growth forests full of ancient boughs and primordial nature, some creatures grow beyond the limits they normally would, taking on truly monumental proportions.

Primal Wolf

Cloaked in a shroud of death, the Primal wolf is the apex of the pack. Howling at the moon the remembrances of wolves past return to fight on and support their pack from beyond the grave. This wolf is a great tactician, being able to bring down foes far larger than it with a nearly unending horde of the undead.

The Primal Wolf is a massive wolf, though not entirely domineering in its physique. It is a little more wispy than a beast of its caliber would suggest, with long white fur that flows effortlessly in the breeze.

Swarm of Bloat Wasps

What's worse than a few bloat wasps? When they begin to swarm together. The likely result of hitting the wrong hive, then bloating venom filled bugs are even more dangerous in groups. Often the results of their carnage are poor farmers who stumbled into the wrong part of the woods near their house, and are felt bulging and groaning in some field somewhere, hoping that the swarm doesn't come back.

Nonetheless, this swarm is on the attack and it is a bit more than a snack. They seek out hungry bellies to fill, and follow their own whims or the whims of whatever controls it. Tiny alone but mighty in its swarm, these chocolate beetles fly off to their next quarry.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +10, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (3d8+7) bludgeoning damage. On hit, target expands for three times the damage dealt and is grappled (escape DC 16).

Sea Elf Golem

This large golem is an earlier, more “crude” design made by Kailene the Shimmering, when she was experimenting with trapping elemental energy into crystals. Her older designs have, of course, been refined over time as she tried to mix lipomantic and elemental energies alike. Nowadays, this model serves as a stalwart guardian of the sea elves of Mistvale, and a harbinger of destruction for their enemies.

Trident. Melee Weapon Attack: +4, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d8+2) piercing damage plus 3 (1d6) lightning damage. Target fattens for twice the total damage dealt.

Lipomantic Bolt Ranged weapon attack: +4, 60 ft range, one target. Hit: 7 (2d6) lightning damage. Target fattens for double the damage dealt.

Sea Elf Magen

One of the sea elves’ more recent attempts at combating the kobold scourge, their magus and arcanists have created and improved upon their automatons and golems, meant to be used as fodder. The loss of even 1 elf life for a hundred kobolds is seen as a tragedy and it is hoped that these sleek and sturdy figures, draped in padded clothing and metal, will turn the tide in this war of attrition. These constructs, however, are not smart, and require guidance from a trained Magus to lead them.

In truth, they are Demos Magen, a construct of magical origin, with its crafting process perfected through a combination of Transmutation, Conjuration and Lipomancy. This creature’s design is a closely guarded secret, known only to Kailene the Shimmering and those who receive her teaching. Those who have witnessed them die will note how they seem to just wilt into nothing, with their suits and armor being the only thing left behind.

Soup Golem

  • Languages -
  • Challenge 7 (2900 XP)

Immutable Form. The Golem is immune to any spell or effects that would alter its form.

Magic Resistance. The Golem has advantage on saving throws against spells and magical effects.

Serve Hot. The Soup within the golem is kept hot and ready to serve. If the Golem takes 10 or more cold damage at one time, this cools the soup, and any fire damage dealt by the Golem is halved until the end of its next turn. However if the Golem takes 10 or more fire damage at one time, it undoes this reduction. Additionally, fire damage dealt by the golem is always nonlethal.

Soup of The Day. Each soup golem is created around a different type of soup or stew. All feeding damage done by the golem is either slimming, average, or fatty food, which should be informed by the type of soup inside. The type a golem has is static and does not change.

Loose Lid. With mostly liquid inside, it’s bad news if it falls over. If the golem is knocked prone, it immediately loses 30 hit points as the soup spills out. Any creature currently in the pot is immediately freed.

Actions

Multiattack. The Golem can make two attacks with any combination of Soup Throw and Slam attacks, and add to the pot if it doesn't have one inside already.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +7, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) bludgeoning damage.

Soup Throw. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7, range 20/40 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (2d4) fire damage plus 9 (2d4+4) feeding damage.

Serve (Recharge 5-6). The Golem opens up its top and uses its ladle to hurl a big wave of soup out in a 30ft cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw, taking 4d4 fire damage and 6d4 feeding damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.

Add to The Pot. The Golem makes a grapple check against an adjacent medium or smaller creature. If it succeeds, the Golem picks them up and puts them in the soup pot where they take 3d4 fire damage and 3d4 feeding damage (escape DC 15). While inside, the creature is considered grappled, blinded, and takes the same damage again at the end of each of their turns. The Golem may only have one creature grappled in this way at a time, and if the creature inside becomes unconscious it will eject them from the pot.

Soup Golem

A massive Iron Pot trundling along on smaller bucket legs, its plated oven mitts wield a huge Ladle that looks sturdy and well used. The Soup Golem is just as the name would imply, a Golem filled up with soup that it seems programmed to feed to anyone it can get its mitts on. Perhaps the result of some hungry artificer who liked to produce their worst ideas, it looks barely functional at times. It might even fall apart on its own given enough time. While likely not intended originally as a dangerous creature though, the Soup Golem is quite the threat to anyone with an empty stomach.

  • Senses darkvision 120 ft., passive Perception 19
  • Languages all, telepathy 120 ft.
  • Challenge 10 (5900 XP)

Divine Awareness. The Examiner knows if it hears a lie.

Magic Resistance. The Examiner has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Spear of Purification. The Examiner has advantage on any attacks made against creatures who have at least 1 point of corruption. When they hit a creature, the target loses one point of corruption.

Innate Spellcasting. The Examiner's spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 17). The Examiner can innately cast the following spells, requiring only verbal components:

  • At will: detect evil and good, immobilize person, misty step
  • 1/day each: commune, scrying, weighty retaliation

Weight of Pleasure. The hefty punishments the Examiner doles out are for others, and not themself. However, if they were to for one reason another experience fattening to themselves as they force onto others, the Examiner might begin to change their tune. If fattened past their second bulk limit, the Examiner becomes enamored by their flabby size. However, this causes them to lose their angelic power. They become unable to use any abilities and special qualities aside from their spear if they still have it. They keep their wings, but lose their fly speed. While in this state, the Examiner will continue to either be mesmerized by their own fat, other fat creatures around them, and a desire to experience even more. After one minute in this state, they vanish back to heaven to be judged for their failure.

Actions

Multiattack. The Examiner makes two melee attacks.

Celestial Spear. Melee Weapon Attack: +9, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8+5) piercing damage plus 13 (3d8) radiant damage. The creature fattens equal to double the damage dealt by the attack.

Weight of Sin (Recharge 6). The Examiner targets up to three creatures it can see within 60 ft of it, forcing them to swell up with fat equal to their wrongs. Each target makes a DC 16 Wisdom save, avoiding the effect on a success. If they fail, the target fattens equal to their character level or CR, multiplied by 20. Evil or chaotic creatures fatten for twice the amount, while chaotic evil creatures fatten for three times the amount. Additionally, the creature may not take any hostile action against the Examiner until the start of the Examiner’s next turn.

Examiner

In the vaulted halls of the seven heavens, not all crimes are absolute. It is believed that many mortals simply do not understand the gravity of the wrongs they commit onto others. And so it is the duty of Examiner angels to find such creatures and study their sins. The weight of their transgressions is measured, and applied to the creature. As the weight of those examined rises to equal their wrongdoings, they are left to carry that burden and learn from it. Of course, such a system relies on the fattening mortals to see this as a punishment. Yet, how could it be seen as anything else?

Magic Resistance. The archon has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Getting Chunky. Used to having a bit of pudge, the Party Archon uses whatever size she finds herself at to her great advantage.

While over her first bulk limit, she starts to let loose, and can use her guzzle action in place of an attack instead of an action, but her fly speed drops by 20ft.

While over her second bulk limit, she starts throwing her weight around, losing her dexterity bonus to AC, but gains advantage on strength saves and checks, as well as resistance to all bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing damage.

While over her third bulk limit, she truly becomes a hedonistic hotty, losing her immunity to being charmed, fly speed, and Radiant Bolt ability. However, the archon’s spear converts to a magical shish kebab, and does stuffing damage as fatty food instead of bludgeoning, and she gains resistance to all damage.

Innate Spellcasting. The archon's innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 17, +9 to hit with spell attacks). The archon’s can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

  • At Will: detect evil and good, bless, spare the dying, doubled digestion
  • 3/day each: branding smite, healing word, warding bond, Thunderous Smite, abyssal stomach

Create Potion of Healing (3/Day). The mead archon touches a container containing 1 pint of alcohol and turns it into a potion of healing. If the potion is not consumed within 24 hours, it reverts back to its original form.

Guzzle (Recharge 3-6). The party Archon has a drinking horn at her side that looks small, but magically carries 5 gallons of divine mead inside. She drinks a pint of alcohol and chooses one of the following effects:

  • Guzzle(1). The archon belches fire in a 15-foot cone. Each creature in that area must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw, taking 24 (6d6) fire damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one.
  • Guzzle(2). The Archon makes a melee attack. If it hits, creatures have advantage to hit the target until the start of the Archon’s next turn.
  • Guzzle(3). The archon regains 30 hit points.

Party Archon

Not all of the Celestial host hail from the austere halls of heaven. Some angelic beings are more aligned to the impulsive, chaotic side, while still upholding their battle for good. Hailing from Ysgard, Party Archons are passionate warriors that carry that same fervor into everything. When not earning glory through foe slaying, these Archons congregate in the Valiant Hall, drinking, eating, and brawling. Such creatures may appear to assist valiant fighters in need, and then join them in celebrating after. Their endless centuries of drinking and fighting mean they are just as often lithe Muscular warriors as they are softened by feasting, or most likely somewhere in between.

Magic Resistance. The angel has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Aura of Vitality. At the start of each of the angel’s turns, the angel and each good-aligned creature that the angel chooses within 30 feet of it regains 5 hp. This also deals 5 points of radiant damage to any undead within 30 ft at the same time. If the angel takes necrotic damage, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the angel’s next turn.

Cleansing. Prosperity Angels passively cleanse the land around them of being soiled or help it recover from being enervated of all life. Given enough time, the land will recover, and also become bountiful and abundant with life and crops. This extends to people as well. Those that spend at least a short rest within 100 ft of the angel find themselves cured of poison, and have any corruption reduced by 1. Such creatures also gain a number of diet points equal to their stomach capacity.

Innate Spellcasting. The angel’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 17, +9 to hit with spell attacks). The angel can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

  • At Will: detect evil and good, bless, feed, speak with animals, doubled digestion
  • 3/day each: Hold Person, detect thoughts, healing word, cure wounds, restoration, abyssal stomach
  • 1/day each: create fattening food and drink, Plant Growth, Animate Snacks, Narce’s Sympathy Gain (1 Week)

Actions

Multiattack. The Prosperity Angel makes two Bountiful Gift or two Asset Slam attacks.

Bountiful Gift. Ranged Weapon Attack: +9, range 60, one target. Hit: 10 (2d4+5) fatty food damage. A gift of a good meal delivered directly to your mouth.

Asset Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +9, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8+5) bludgeoning damage. The Angel uses her prodigious assets to assault a foe. As she grows in size, the effects of this attack also change.

Asset Slam (Burdened). Melee Weapon Attack: +9, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d8+5) bludgeoning damage. The Angel uses her prodigious assets to assault a foe. As she grows in size, the effects of this attack also change. The target also fattens equal to double damage dealt.

Asset Slam (Impeded). Melee Weapon Attack: +9, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (3d8+5) bludgeoning damage. The target also fattens equal to double damage dealt. The Angel can no longer use multiattack with this attack, but any target struck must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom save or become Ravenous until the end of their next turn.

Asset Slam (Immobile). Melee Weapon Attack: +9, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 23 (4d8+5) bludgeoning damage. The target also fattens equal to double damage dealt. The Angel can no longer use multiattack with this attack, but may choose to grapple a struck creature (Escape DC 17), a creature grappled in this way is considered restrained as well. The Angel cannot grapple more than one creature this way at a time.

Calmness. The Angel targets one humanoid it can see within 30 ft. of it. If the target can see the angel, the target must succeed on a DC 17 Wisdom saving throw against this magic or be charmed by the angel. The charmed target regards the angel as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected, as well as accepting any food offered to them. Additionally, the creature is overwhelmed with a sense of inner peace, unable to perform hostile actions unless attacked, and finding themselves looking to lounge and eat available food. If the angel, or one of the angel’s companions attacks the target the effect ends. Otherwise, the effect lasts 24 hours or until the angel is destroyed, is on a different plane of existence than the target, or takes a bonus action to end the effect.

Prosperity Angel

While many angelic beings are called to battle by either duty or purpose, there are many ways in which celestial light may shine. For those mortals who stave off starvation in brutal winters, hold out hope in desperate sieges, or simply receive blessings from their divine patrons, they may receive help in the form of a Prosperity Angel. These blessed beings come to bring plenty to the mundane world, that they themselves embody with burgeoning curves and a soft touch. Though don’t think that they’ve no place in a battle. Abundance can be used as a weapon as well, giving their foes their just desserts. A Prosperity Angel may avoid killing a mortal by simply leaving them too soft and cuddly to fight back.

Honey Weird

Some of the most basic of food constructs, the Honey Weirds are ultimately big sweethearts who are easy to mass produce but difficult to actually use in any meaningful way outside of a portable source of feeding. Their squishy bodies are only suited for diminutive forms, and their lackluster intellect dissuades entrusting them with any task that requires a greater than zero degree of effort from their part. What they lack strength and intellect they make up for in heart, loving energy, and complete adoration to anything and everything. And how do they show their love? Force feeding people honey of course!

Ice Cream Weird

  • Hit Points 95 (9d8+45)

Lipomantic Conversion. Any food the Weird eats is converted into lbs of fat and any weight the Weird possesses is made up of edible ice cream fatty food that is used by its attacks.

Ice Cream Headache. Whenever a creature would take Overstuffing damage while having eaten any of the Weird's ice cream they must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save they are stunned until the end of their turn. Additionally, if they are concentrating on any spells or effects, they lose concentration.

Soft Served. At the start of a creature's turn while grappled by the weird, they are automatically force fed 2d4 lbs of food.

Feed. Melee Attack: +7, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (2d6) fatty food. Can only target creatures the weird is grappling.

ice Cream Weird

Cold and indifferent eyes gaze upon all those who face these frigid guardians. Designed as constructs to follow orders they are precise and direct in their actions, often taking things very literally. They tend to be cold and brash with their statements, and have a calculated approach to dispatching enemies, though their techniques often utilize overfilling them to knock them unconscious.

Lacticite Elemental

Large elemental, neutral

  • Armor Class 17 (natural armor)
  • Hit Points 126 (12d10+60)
  • Speed 30 ft., burrow 30 ft.

Siege Monster. The elemental deals double damage to objects and structures.

Lacticite Aura. The Lacticite Elemental counts as Lacticite Ore, following the same rules for Lacticite Ore.

Lacticite Disguise. While not moving, the Lacticite Elemental is indistinguishable from Lacticite Ore deposits.

Actions

Multiattack. The elemental makes two Lacticite slam attacks.

Lacticite Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +10, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (2d8+5) bludgeoning damage. Target lactates twice the amount of damage as milk within their chest.

Lactitice Elemental

Made of the same strange milky metal ore that powers magical milk weaponry of the Yesun, these elemental spirits often patrol around such deposits. They are very much like earth elementals, being their cousins, but both more fragile, and more dangerous for to one's ability to control their breasts.

Marshmallow Weird

Medium Elemental, Chaotic Neutral

  • Armor Class 14 (natural armor)
  • Hit Points 90 (12d8+36)
  • Speed 30 ft.

Lipomantic Conversion. Any food the Weird eats is converted into lbs of fat and any weight the Weird possesses is made up of edible marshmallow fatty food that is used by its attacks.

Heated Expansion. Whenever the Weird is hit by Fire Damage, it expands to a size larger. When the Weird reaches size Gargantuan, it explodes with Lipomantic energy, every creature within 30 ft of the Weird must make a DC 13 Dexterity saving throw. On a failed save, the creature gains 15d10 lbs of fat. Its Bulk scales with the size it is.

Marshmallow Expansion. Whenever a creature has food from the Weird in its stomach, any time they take fire damage causes the food to expand by 1d8 lbs.

Actions

Multiattack. The Weird can make two toasty touch attacks or one force feed attack.

Force Feed. Melee Weapon Attack: +7, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d8) Fatty Food. For each size above medium the weird is, the target eats another 1d8 fatty food.

Toasty Touch. Melee Attack: +7, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 fire damage. For each size above medium the weird is, the damage is 1 higher.

Marshmallow Weird

Warm and caring, though a bit airy in the head, the Marshmallow Weirds are strange confluences of pyromantic energies of fire and warmth and the high calorie hi-jinx of lipomantic magics. Created by mages, they often have a singular mind about getting tasks done. Often times that mind is dedicated to the thought of "make people big" and "make people fat", while entertaining additional orders that fall within the purview of those intentions. The particular fluffy mix of sticky marshmallow is highly reactive to heat, expanding greatly in the presence of any source of signifigant warmth. They utilize this to double the size of meals already ingested by their foes in their pursuit of making them big and round. Of course, mages worry on what happens should two decide to try and mutually warm one another up.

Voxurite Elemental Myrmidon

  • Armor Class 18 (vox plate armor)
  • Hit Points 127 (17d8+51)

  • Challenge 7 (2900 XP)

Vox Touch. At the start of the Voxturite Elemental Myrmidon’s turn, any creature grappled by it fattens for 5d10 pounds.

Vox Eruption. Upon reaching 0 hit points, the Voxturite Elemental Myrmidon explodes into lipomantic charged shards. Creatures within a 20 ft radius of the explosion must make a DC 15 dexterity saving throw or fatten for 2d100 pounds or half on a successful saving throw. The Voxturite forming this Myrmidon becomes inert after this explosion.

Actions

Multiattack. The myrmidon makes two Vox Fist attacks.

Vox Fist. Melee Weapon Attack: +7, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) force damage and the target is grappled (DC 14 escape) if the Voxturite elemental myrmidon has a free hand. Target fattens for twice the amount of damage dealt.

Vox Punch (Recharge 5-6). The myrmidon makes one Vox Fist attack. On a hit, the target takes an extra 22 (4d10) force damage and fattens for twice the amount. The target must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the target is grappled by the Myrmidon, it is no longer grappled and knocked back 30 ft.

Voxturite Elemental Myrmidon

Combination of a lipomantic elemental and the same rituals to create any other elemental Myrmidon. However certainly the kind of mage to create one of these must have surely be even more crazed. The combination of an earth elemental with the fattening power of Voxturite ore is a truly dangerous combination to waistline and adventurer alike.

Eridanus Spirit

Rivers have always been a place of great importance and beauty. Rivers flow from great mountain peaks, bringing water down to the lowlands, where it merges back into the sea in the great cycle of water. Drawn to the beauty of such systems are fey with a particular affection for the water, and a protective nature of their rivers. Tending to hold territory for great stretches of river, these spirits bloat those who trespass, delighting in watching sloshing forms struggle to escape, on occasion keeping some as delightful playthings. While humanoid in form, they are as fluid as the rivers they live in, being able to weave in and out of combat with all the swiftness of a rapid.

Fruity Dryad

Medium fey, neutral

  • Hit Points 65 (108+10)

Magic Resistance. The dryad has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Tree Stride. Once on her turn, the dryad can use 10 feet of her movement to step magically into one living tree within her reach and emerge from a second living tree within 60 feet of the first tree, appearing in an unoccupied space within 5 feet of the second tree. Both trees must be Large or bigger

Actions

Multiattack. The Dryad makes two Vine Whip attacks

Vine Whip. Melee Weapon Attack: +6, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) piercing damage. Target bloats for double the damage with fruit juice.

Song of Swelling. The Dryad lets out a magical song, causing swelling in those it affects. A target that can hear the dryad, who is within 60 ft of the dryad must make a DC 14 Constitution Saving throw or bloat with 1d100*2 lbs of fruit juice, or half as much on a successful save.

Fruity Dryad

Through the forests of the endless wilds, a song can be found through the wind and between the trees. Lush forests with heavy rainfall breeds a unique form of Dryad. Saturated with the magic of water, these Dryads hone the power of pressure to their own gain. Vain and adoring of humanity, they seek eternal companionship. Many seek out charms and enchantment to catch their prey. These sing out an enchanting song, which bloat out hapless humans with fruity juice, to be kept in their groves, juiced to sustain the dryads and to keep them captive.

Grapebomber

Small fey, chaotic neutral

  • Armor Class 8
  • Hit Points 28 (8d6)
  • Speed 40 ft.
STRDEXCONINTWISCHA

Ambusher. In the first round of combat, the grapebomber has advantage on attack rolls against any creature it has surprised.

Sneak Attack (1/turn). The grapebomber deals an extra 3 (1d6) damage when it hits a target with an attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 feet of an ally of the grapebomber that isn't incapacitated.

Natural Camouflage. A grapebomber has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks made in the forest. Creatures who attack a target that cannot see them have advantage on their attack roll.

Actions

Multiattack. The grapebomber can use its grape pelter action three times.

Grape Pelter. Ranged Weapon Attack: +6, range 60 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d4+4) acid damage. The target bloats with grape juice for an amount equal to four times the damage dealt.

Grapebomber

Of the fey, it is known that they’re crafty, and often times annoying. The grapebomber fits that description to a T. A highly territorial creature, it exists in places teeming with vegetation. Areas which have likely never been visited by a person before. There, they make their cottages. Out of dirt mounds on the floor, or by carving out tree trunks. Any and all intruders are repelled with an, often unexpected, barrage of enchanted grapes, that explode into a blast of acidic fluids on impact.

Great Mother

Large fey, chaotic neutral

  • Armor Class 17 (natural armor)
  • Hit Points 204 (24d10+72)
  • Speed 40 ft.
  • Bulk limit 720/1440/2160, Avg Weight 1300 lbs. (800 lbs. base), Stomach Capacity 20 lbs.
STRDEXCONINTWISCHA

  • Saving Throws Str +9, Wis +7, Cha +8
  • Skills Arcana +6, Athletics +9, Eating +7, Insight +7, Perception +7, Persuasion +11
  • Damage Vulnerabilities Attacks made with Cold Iron weapons
  • Damage Resistances poison; bludgeoning, piercing and slashing from nonmagical attacks
  • Condition Immunities charmed, paralyzed, poisoned
  • Senses darkvision 120 ft., passive Perception 17
  • Languages Common, Druidic, Elven, Sylvan, Terran
  • Challenge 12 (8400 XP)

Magic Resistance. The Great Mother has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Loving Softness. A beacon of loving energy, the Great Mother creates extra comforting weight in all those around her. Any weight gain caused directly by the Great Mother is doubled. However, she herself is subject to this effect, and any weight gain involving dice the Mother experiences is quadrupled.

Matronly Mass. As the Great Mother fattens, her ministrations only become harder to resist. While over her impeded bulk limit, all DCs for her abilities and spells increase by +2. Additionally, any hug attacks she makes are made with advantage, while any attempts to escape being grounded by her are made with disadvantage.

Innate Spellcasting. The Great Mother’s innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 15, +9 to hit with spell attacks). The Great Mother can innately cast the following spells, requiring no components:

  • At Will: Light, Mending, Dancing Lights, druidcraft, goodberry, Abyssal Stomach, Doubled Digestion (24 hrs)
  • 3/day each: Weighty Retaliation, Resize, Immobilize Person, Sunlight Salve, Feed (3rd level), Revivify, Plant Growth
  • 1/day each: Expanding Edict, Fatnap, Grand Capacity, Create Fattening Food and Drink, Inertia Rush, Dispel Magic, Greater Restoration

Actions

Multiattack. The Great Mother can make two attacks with any combination of Hug and Lecture attacks.

Hug. Melee Weapon Attack: +9, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 15 (3d6+5) bludgeoning damage. Target fattens for double damage taken. This attack is non-lethal in all contexts.

Lecture. Ranged Attack: +9, range 60, one target. Hit: 12 (3d4+5) Psychic damage. Target fattens for double damage taken. The target fattens equal to double the damage dealt. This attack is non-lethal in all contexts.

Grounded. Deciding that someone in particular is in need of some punishment, the Great Mother can use her movement to enter the spaces of large or smaller creatures. When she stops, she goes prone on top of any creatures within her space who then make a Dexterity Saving throw (DC 15) to avoid being sat on. A creature that succeeds on this save is forced to move out of the Great Mother’s space. Any creatures that fail this save fall prone and are restrained (escape DC 16) until the Great Mother moves. While restrained in this way, creatures had disadvantage on saves to any spells cast on them by the Great Mother.

Mother's Care. The Great Mother targets one humanoid that she can see within 30 feet of her. If the target can see the Great Mother, it must succeed on a DC 15 Wisdom saving throw or be magically charmed. The charmed creature regards the dryad as a trusted friend to be heeded and protected so that she can in turn protect and nurture the creature. Although the target isn't under her control, it takes the Great Mother’s requests or actions in the most favorable way it can.

In addition, a humanoid affected by this is overtaken with a desire to let the Great Mother take care of them, accepting her actions to feed and fatten them. Any eating checks made to overeat are considered to have rolled a 20.

Each time the Great Mother or its allies do anything harmful to the target, it can repeat the saving throw, ending the effect on itself on a success. Otherwise, the effect allows another save every 24 hours or until the Great Mother dies, is on a different plane of existence from the target, or ends the effect as a bonus action. If a target's saving throw is successful, the target is immune to the effect for the next 24 hours.

The Great Mother can have as many creatures under the effect as she likes, but must wait 24 hours before using the ability again if she successfully charms a target for the first time.

Great Mother

Fey are strange creatures with even stranger whims. Their interactions with mortals can prove equally difficult to fathom what they want. Some are more straightforward in their desire, if still clearly otherworldly in their actions. Great Mothers are a particular type of fey that see themselves as caretakers of nature, and especially mortal charges that come their way. This care isn’t always in the best interest of their mortal charges though, and more about what the fey thinks they need. Often this involves making sure her mortal play things are well taken care of and spoiled rotten with excess. This inevitably results in them growing soft and complacent in her care, just the way she wants them to be.

Candy Enforcer

The Candy Lands are a peaceful place of little strife, most of the time. Yet even the most docile of kingdoms still require means of law. These enforcers are the Candy Lands best and brightest, sturdy in fist and stalwart in resolve. They never strive to kill, simply knock lawbreakers unconscious, or leaving them too full to resist. A master of tactics and maneuvers, they know just how to change the battlefield to their benefit.

Stabilizing Shot. The Demolitionist Ranger may sacrifice all its movement at the start of its turn, adding their Wisdom Modifier to damage rolls until it moves or is moved.

Actions

Multiattack. The Ranger may make two attacks on its turn

Fat Gas Canister (Recharge 6). The Ranger chooses a point within 100 ft of themself. They fire a great-arrow at that point, which releases a fattening gas in a 30 ft radius sphere for the next minute. When a creature enters the gases area for the first time on a turn or starts its turn there, they must make a DC 15 Constitution saving throw. On a failed save, they take 6d6 poison damage and gain twice as much in lbs of fat, half as much on a successful save..

Great-Arrow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8, reach 150/600, one target. Hit: 11 (2d6+4) piercing damage. This attack deals double damage to structures.

Blubber Bolt. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8, range 150/600 ft, one target. Hit: Target gains 28 (8d6) lbs of fat.

Bonus Actons

Locked On. As a bonus action, the Ranger can designate a target as the target of its attention. While marked, the creature takes an additional 1d6 damage, and fattens for double the amount it normally would from effects originating from the ranger

Grapple Shot. As a bonus action, the Ranger can move quickly across the battlefield. They can move 60 ft to a location they can see, so long as there is a surface they can see to grapple onto it. They cannot use this ability if they are impeded or higher.

Demolitionist Ranger

The crack of a tensed bow, and the shattering of the environment around them. These rangers are designed to be large, in charge, and destructive. Their surefooted stance allows them to hunker down and launch arrows far greater than most would be able to wield, striking down buildings and foes alike. Skilled in utilizing lipomancy to their benefit, they can impede their foes with lipomantic magics. Can’t hide behind cover if it's left to splinters, can’t hide behind those splinters if they’re wider than their cover.

Diet Duelist

Medium Humanoid, Any Alignment

  • Armor Class 16 (Breast Plate)
  • Hit Points 105 (14d8+42)
  • Speed 30 ft.

  • Saving Throws Str +7, Con +6
  • Skills Athletics +7, Insight +3, Perception +3
  • Senses passive Perception 13
  • Languages Any two languages
  • Challenge 6 (2300 XP)

Slimming Strike (1/turn) When the duelist hits with an attack, the duelist employs an ancient technique of their knight school to use an enemy's bulk against them. The target must make a DC 14 Strength Saving Throw. On a failed save, the target slims for 5d10 lbs, and the Duelist gains that much in bulk, gains +2 to its hit bonus and damage, and gains 2d6 temporary hit points until the end of the duelist’s next turn. If the target is burdened, this bonus lasts for two turns and the temporary hit points gained becomes 3d6. If the target is impeded or higher, the bonus lasts for three turns and the temporary hit points gained becomes 4d6.

Actions

Multiattack. The Enforcer may make two attacks on its turn

Longsword. Melee Weapon Attack: +7, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d10+4) slashing damage.

Reactions

Parry The Duelist gains +2 to its armor class until the start of its next turn

Lipomantic Deflection The Duelist repels lipomantic effects, being able to counter any spells or effects that would cause it to gain or lose weight, be fed food, or otherwise change its current bulk

Diet Duelist

Fat is power, a fact that many have learned through their time in Argonath. The duelists seem keenly aware, having learned a unique style of swordsmanship which allows them to draw strength from their opponents. This unique ability does come with the downside that they take on this weight, a vicious balance between keeping themselves armored and gaining the weight that gives them strength.

Flash Kick

Medium Humanoid, Any Alignment

  • Armor Class 16 (Natural Armor)
  • Hit Points 63 (14d8)
  • Speed 40 ft.
  • Bulk limit 120/240/360, Avg Weight 120 lbs. (110 lbs. base), Stomach Capacity 2 lbs.

  • Senses passive Perception 13

  • Challenge 4 (2300 XP)

Restricted Moveset. Due to the agile nature of their fighting style, they cannot access some of their moves if their limbs are thickened with fat. If the Flash Kick is Impeded or above, they cannot perform their Stun Kick or Axe Kick moves; additionally, they gain access to their Butt Slam attack

Actions

Multiattack. The Flash Kick can make two attacks, and can substitute one of these attacks with a Stun Kick or Buttslam

Stun Kick (Recharge 6). The Flash Kick thrusts upwards with a surprise strike against their opponents jaw, the sudden strike causing them to stagger. A creature must succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or becomes Stunned until the end of their turn.

Axe Kick. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. On hit: 14 (3d6+4) Bludgeoning damage

Sweep Kick. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. On hit: 7 (1d6+4) bludgeoning damage. The target must make a DC 15 Strength Saving Throw or be knocked Prone.

Butt Slam (Impeded or above only). Using their newfound bulk, they try to use their weight to crush their opponents. A prone target must succeed a DC 15 Dexterity saving throw or take 3d6+4 bludgeoning damage, half as much on a successful save.

Flash Kick

Martial artists skilled in using their legs as their deadliest weapons. Swift kicks from high and low, disables and strikes hard at their foes. Yet, these swift agile fighters do have some minor downsides to their swift styles, as it requires a rather sleek physique to pull off. Adding weight to their legs slows their movements and makes them grow sluggish. If they are too thick in the thigh, they are clever enough to consider alternative means of attack

Flux Striker

Medium Humanoid, Any Alignment

  • Armor Class 15 (Natural Armor)
  • Hit Points 119 (14d8+46)

Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. On hit: 7 (1d6+4) Bludgeoning damage. Target fattens for double the damage.

Bonus Actions

Strike The Flux Striker may make an extra attack if it makes a Strike attack on its turn.

Lipomantic Slam. At the end of its turn, the Flux Striker can use its Bonus Action to prepare a massive blast of lipomancy. On its next turn the first hit fattens the target for an additional 20d10 lbs. If they cannot hit an attack by the end of its next turn, the Flux striker gains that weight instead.

Reactions

Retaliatory Strike. When the Flux Striker is hit by an attack, it can use its reaction to make an attack on a creature within range.

Flux Striker

Unique brawlers, the Flux Strikers utilize lipomancy in their strikes to fatten their opponents. Tough and stretchy skin makes them hard to damage, yet fat sticks to their figures all the same. Their arms can extend out further than most would anticipate, making it difficult to escape a brawl with these Fleshbound foes. They can utilize their innate lipomantic abilities to charge a greater strike against their foes, yet should they not find a way to release their blubbery blow, the energies would be released back onto their own figures.

Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +4, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (3) Bludgeoning damage.

Unarmed Strike. Melee Weapon Attack: +5, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (4) Bludgeoning damage.

Officer’s Command. The officer can command an ally that can understand one of its languages (can’t be another gingerbread officer) into action. The ally immediately performs a single weapon attack and gains +2 temporary AC until the start of the officer’s next turn.

Gingerbread Knight

In charge of armies of gingerbread knights stands the officer. While they seem to hold themselves stronger and more confident, their morality and inflexibility is the exact same.

Gas Grenade (Recharge 5-6). The Gluttonous Grenadier tosses a grenade of various effects. Pick one from: Hungering Gas, Obscuring Gas, or Fattening Gas. Only one of each of these can be active at a time, the effect ending if it's reapplied elsewhere.

  • Hungering Gas. The Grenadier launches a grenade full of a unique blend of magics which makes those hit ravenously hungry. The Grenadier chooses one creature within 60 ft of it, and has them make a DC 14 Wisdom saving throw or become Ravenous. They may remake this save at the end of their turn.
  • Obscuring Gas. The Grenadier throws a grenade full of obscuring smoke. At a point within 60 ft of the Grenadier a 10 ft radius sphere of smoke appears, which counts as Heavy Obscurement. The gas lingers at that location for a minute, or until a source of wind blows it away.
  • Fattening Gas. The Grenadier unleashes a grenade full of agitated Voxturite. At a point within 60 ft of the Grenadier a 20 ft radius sphere of fattening gas appears. Any creature that enters the gas for the first time or starts its turn there must make a DC 15 constitution saving throw or gain 4d10 lbs of fat, half as much on a successful save. The gas lingers at that location for a minute, or until a source of wind blows it away.

Voxturite Shrapnel Bomb. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, Range 20/60 ft, one target. On Hit: 10 (1d12+4) Piercing damage, target fattening for double the damage dealt.

Reactions

Assisting Brilliance (4/day). In a flash of genius the Grenadier provides assistance to allies under fire. The Grenadier can grant +4 to any saving throw another creature makes within 30 ft of it.

Gluttonous Grenadier

Gas dissipates as a lone figure marches through the miasma of enchanted air. A grenadier, unique in their kind, specialized in making bombs and explosives of the fattening variety. Tossing hazardous orbs to their enemies to control the battlefield. Yet through it all they march through mist and gas alike, unfazed, unaffected, unafraid.

Goblin Slammer

Goblins are known for their sneaky habits, ambushes and surprise attacks to make up for their lacking size. One habit taught by their cousin the Bugbear was to drop down from above. Many are occupied with the treats on the ground and they ignore what lurks above. So, goblins happily dropped from trees and cliffs onto their enemies with daggers drawn and cries readied. That was until Bertha “The Wide Hip” went on a raid with the other goblins. The sheer mass of her ass caused the branch she sat on to snap under her. The rest of the raiding party assumed that the gig was up, until they found that she accidentally landed on this caravan's heavily armored guard, and the weight of her sizable ass caused him to be knocked out in a moment! From there, a new tactic was born, to bring along the heftiest among them to knock the daylights out of those they wish by landing on them. So far, it’s been successful

Candied Kobold

A strange confluence of lipomantic energies suffuse certain populations of Kobolds, leading to an interesting alteration to their physiology. Their scales crystalize into sweet sugary shards, as they become oh so delicious and rather calorie dense. They also gain the uncanny ability to regenerate back at their nests, but only should they be consumed whole by other sapient creatures. They don’t question it, instead seeking out creatures to swallow them whole to incapacitate and fatten them up. Once a target is fattened off their numerous figures, they bring them over to their leader to join their own wondrous form.

Kobold Warrior

These kobolds are unlike the usual ones adventurers and heroes have fought. To many, a kobold is weak and scrawny. These however, come from a different breed. Standing a few inches taller than an average kobold, their physique is sturdier, if a little chubby. Well fed and well armed, hardened by years of toiling happily underground, the kobolds of Yrsyth’s army are battle-ready and well-disciplined. They make for a most excellent fighting force.

Kobold Champion

For a kobold to survive through a few years of constant conflict is no small achievement! These grizzled veterans serve as elites and, rarely, even as commanders. They are better equipped than their usual counterparts, but they do not have access to any real enchanted gear, due to how greedy their mistress is.

Kobold Shaman

Acting as spiritual leaders for the kobolds, and as political officers for Yrsyth, the kobold shamans seek to emulate her in all aspects.

They are rewarded for their devotion with lots of treats and delicacies. The fatter the shaman, the more prestigious they are.

If it hits, the target takes 2d8 additional poison damage and fattens for twice the poison damage dealt and are poisoned until the start of the Kobold Crafter’s next turn, unless they succeed on a DC 14 Constitution saving throw, taking just half the damage and fattening instead on a success.

This Action can be used only to take the Attack Action (only one attack is performed, regardless of how many attacks the affected target has), or to take the Dash Action. This effect does not stack with similar effects, like Haste. The affected target cannot cast or concentrate on any spells in this state. If there are no enemies within reach, the affected target must attack the nearest creature.

Bonus Actions

Healing Lard Potion. As a Bonus Action, the Kobold Crafter can have a friendly target within 5 feet of herself (including itself) consume a potion of Healing Lard, causing them to heal for 3d4+3 hitpoints and fatten for twice the amount healed.

Mad Lipologist

Lipomancy is a delicious new form of magic, and some seem to have a keen interest in it. Some become fascinated at the power it holds, while others adore the look of fat figures. Either way, this Artificer has focused all their energies into making their opponents as big and wide as possible. Their boons could be made non-fattening… But where’s the fun in that?

Fat is power, the bare essentials of why so many are drawn to Lipomancy. The call to use their own mass, as well as the mass of others, for their own gain brings forth those with interest in magic but no way to channel it. The lipomancer is one of the prime ways that this form of magic is shown in the lands.

Diet Duelist

Lipomancy is such an inelegant form of magic, and fat is ever so unsightly. These warriors have elected that someone should force these fatties to enjoy their veggies. Utilizing a whip to grab onto foes, and a balanced meal of leafy greens and hearty vegetables, they are enforcing a meal plan that would be best for the newfound inhabitants of Argonath. Their reluctance to enjoy indulgence does leave them vulnerable to succumbing to the very thing they fight.

All are gifted their most important object: A weapon forged from lacticite, a strange duo-tone metal that has a chillingly milk edge. The method of creating such weapons is not known to the Vanguard as of now, but the Temujin seem to prize them above all else.

Devil’s Sight. Magical darkness doesn’t impede the sundae cerberus’ darkvision.

Edible. The sundae cerberus is made of ice cream. Any creature that uses a bite attack against it consumes an amount of fatty food equal to one quarter of the damage dealt.

Multiple Heads. The sundae cerberus has three heads. While it has more than one head, it has advantage on saving throws against being blinded, deafened, and stunned. Whenever the sundae cerberus takes 60 or more damage in a single turn, one of its heads dies. If all its heads die, the sundae cerberus dies.

Magic Resistance. The sundae cerberus has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.***

Magic Weapons. The sundae cerberus’s attacks are magical.

Actions

Multiattack. The sundae cerberus makes as many attacks as it has heads, but it may replace one attack with a Sticky Shot.

Cursed Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +10 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (4d6+6) piercing damage. The target fattens equal to the damage dealt. In addition, the bite corrupts the target. The first time a creature takes damage from the sundae cerberus’s bite in a turn, they gain 1 point of corruption.

Sticky Shot. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 90 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (3d6+4) bludgeoning damage. On hit, the target must make a DC 16 Strength saving throw or become tangled in sticky taffy, reducing their speed to zero until they break free as an action (Escape DC 16).

Fudge Breath (Recharge 6). The sundae cerberus exhales hot fudge in a 30 ft. cone from each of its heads separately. Each creature in the area must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw, taking 14 (4d6) fire damage and a third as much fatty food damage on a failed save, or half as much on a successful one.

Sundae Cerberus

A beast of legend, a creature of great power. Where there is a cold wind blowing, showing a forbidden place, there are defenders. Sometimes, those defenders are the Sundae Cerberus, a creature of half melted desert, rage, and lipomancy. Their foes are left in a trail of melted fudge, waistlines destroyed, and bellies overstuffed.

Weighty Jumper. The Thunderstep Harpy is an excellent jumper, being able to leap clear over people's heads, often to stomp on them with their rear. Though too great a mass can leave them earthbound. While the Harpy is below Impeded, the harpy can jump 10 feet into the air without taking falling damage. If the Harpy is impeded, they cannot jump with this feature.

Thundering Thighs. The clap of these Harpies thighs are a terrifying (or mesmerizing) sound to behold. When the Harpy moves 20 ft in a straight line all creatures within 30 ft of the Harpy while it moves must make a DC 12 Constitution Saving throw or be stunned until the end of their turn. A successful save makes the creature immune to this effect for 24 hours.

Actions

Multiattack The Thunderstep Harpy can make two Kick attacks

Kick. Melee Weapon Attack: +6, reach 5 ft., one target. On Hit: 11 (2d6+4) Bludgeoning damage

Butt Slam. If the Harpy is 10 ft. above a creature, they can descend on the creature with a great amount of force. The creature must make a DC 13 Dexterity Saving Throw or take 17 (4d6+4) Bludgeoning damage and be knocked Prone. On a successful save they take half the damage.

Thunderstep Harpy

Unique creatures, these Harpy’s are often found in areas with large stretches of space available for them to run. Having lost the ability to fly effectively, they instead rely on their strong legs and thighs to rush through the grassy fields they call home. They’ve developed a unique style of handling foes, using their own weight to crush foes. Unconventional, but they seem to be doing very good for themselves.

Turkatrice

Turkey Stuffing. If the turkatrice puts a target creature to sleep and no hostile creatures are nearby, it can feed itself to the target creature over the course of a minute. When it does so, it’s equivalent to twice its remaining health in fatty food. If this would cause the target to eat over their capacity, the target creature still rolls an overeating check but takes no overstuffing damage if their total capacity is exceeded.

Actions

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d4+1) piercing damage. The target must succeed a DC 11 Constitution saving throw against being put to sleep by the sleep-inducing compounds found in turkey. On a failed save, the creature begins to fall asleep: they suffer the effects of the poisoned condition, can either more or take an action but not both, and can’t take bonus actions or reactions. It must repeat the saving throw at the end of its next turn. On a success, the effect ends. On a failure, the creature is magically put to sleep for 1 hour. They can be woken up with the Lesser Restoration or Greater Restoration spells, and wake up after taking damage.

Turkatrice

The co*ckatrice is a disgusting, terrifying abomination capable of turning anything unfortunate enough to have run into its path into stone in the terrifying process of petrification. The turkitrice isn’t dissimilar - in mannerism, anyway, beating its cooked wings and jumping frantically at anything it perceives as a target. Rather than a grotesque lizard-bird-bat thing, the turkatrice is a plump, golden-browned turkey seemingly always just cooked to perfection and delightfully seasoned. Additionally, rather than petrifying a target to make them easy pickings, the turkatrice puts them to sleep. It is rarely seen by the victim when they wake, its presence either replaced with the weight of a heavy meal in their belly or the aftermath of such a meal on it.

Amorphous. The jelly can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing

Spider Climb. The jelly can climb difficult surfaces, including upside down on ceilings, without needing to make an ability check.

Gut Filler. The jelly takes an unusually long time to digest, occupying space in a creature’s stomach until they complete a long rest and is not removed by magical effects that instantly digest food. If the Jelly keeps a creature’s stomach stretched beyond their base capacity for eight hours or more, the creature’s stomach capacity increases by 1. If the jelly's mass is enough to keep the creature's stomach stretched to double its base capacity, its capacity increases by 2. And so forth in multiples of the creature's base stomach capacity.

Actions

Down The Hatch. Melee Weapon Attack: +5, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 7 (1d8+3) acid damage. The jelly launches itself at its target's mouth! On a hit, the target consumes 2d4 pounds of food. For each pound eaten, reduce the jelly’s hit points and hit point maximum by 2.

Belly Jelly

Little balls of edible goop with a particular wobbling spring in their step that one might find familiar to a bouncy ball. Yet don't let their springy texture fool you, they're no rubber. These little things are known for a want to find tight places and fill them up, due to their original purpose for opening up cracks in rocks. Instead, these little lost suckers find themselves wandering around until some unfortunate adventure finds their tummy is even easier to fill.

Bubble Form. Being a creature formed nearly entirely from bubbles, inflation hardly seems to affect it.The Bubble slime ignores the disadvantages of the Stretched and Taut condition until it is Ballooned.

Actions

Multiattack. The Bubble Slime can make two bubble beam attacks

Bubble Blow (Recharge 5-6). The Slime begins to blow a massive magical bubble. It creates a 40 ft radius sphere centered on itself. Whenever a creature enters the sphere for the first time, or starts its turn in it, they must make a DC 13 Constitution saving throw. On a failed saving throw they expand with 6d6*4 lbs of air, half as much on a successful save. The Bubble is sturdy and attempts to contain those within. The bubble has 30 hit points and an AC of 10. It requires an action to make a DC 13 Strength saving throw to escape. If the Bubble Slime uses this ability again within the area of the bubble, it expands out to another 20 ft.

Bubble Beam. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d10) cold damage. Target expands for four times the damage dealt.

Puffer's Kiss. If the Bubble slime is above any of its pressure limits, and is grappling a target, it can transfer up to 160 lbs of pressure from itself onto the grappled target. It cannot go below 0 pressure.

Bubble Slime

Slimes of a greater magnitude, these oozes are often constructed from areas of high natural magical energies, granting them an edge over other slimes in terms of intelligence, though not in their sigleminded persistence of motivation. These bubble slimes are defensive of their territories, and their greatest way to defend themselves is to utilize the mystical foam of bubbles they are constructed from to inflate their foes to helpless spheres. Fussy when it comes to cleanliness, these slimes often spend long hours tidying up their domains. Some mages are able to contract these slimes to clean their towers or dungeons, though should the slime sort out the greatest source of mess is the mage themselves, that is a new kind of mess all on its own.

Amorphous. The jam jelly can move through a space as narrow as 1 inch wide without squeezing.

Food Composition. The jam jelly is made of sweet jelly (flavor differs from one to another). Any creature that hits the jelly with a bite attack eats 1d4 pounds of fatty food.

Prone to Splitting. Large and bigger jam jellies have immunity to slashing and lightning damage. However, when a large or bigger jam jelly is hit by slashing or lightning damage, it splits into two if it has at least 2 HP. Each new jelly is one size smaller than the original, as they revert back to their initial form. The smaller jellies' new max HP is half of the original’s max HP rounded down, and each of their current HPs is equal to half the current HP of the original rounded down.

Actions

Multiattack. The dryad makes 2 slam attacks.

Combine (Large or Smaller). The jam jelly targets another jam jelly of its same size within 5 ft. of itself. The two jellies fuse together, creating a new jelly that’s one size bigger than they originally were, leaving no trace behind of their initial forms. The max HP of the new jelly is equal to the sum of the two initial jellies’ max HP, and the current HP of the new jelly is equal to the sum of the two initial jellies’ current HP plus 10, as together, they can mend some of the damage each of them took.

Pseudopod. Melee Weapon Attack: +5, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 6 (1d6+3) bludgeoning damage plus 1d6 lbs fatty food. This attack has an additional +1 to hit, and 1d6 more bludgeoning and feeding damage for each size the Jelly is above Medium.

Engulf. The jam jelly moves up to its speed. While doing so, it can enter the space of creatures that are at least one size smaller than it. Whenever the jelly enters a creature’s space, the creature must make a DC 14 Dexterity saving throw.On a success, the creature can choose to be pushed 5 ft. back or to the side of the jelly. A creature that chooses not to be pushed suffers the consequences of a failed saving throw.

On a failed save, the jelly enters the creature’s space, and the creature is forced to eat 3 (1d6) pounds of fatty food. The creature can’t breathe, is restrained, and is forced to eat 7 (2d6) pounds of fatty food at the start of each of the jelly’s turns. When the jelly moves, the engulfed creature moves along with it. An engulfed creature can try to escape by taking an action to make a DC 14 Strength check. On a success, the creature escapes and enters a space of its choice within 5 ft. of the jelly.

Jam Jelly

A creature made by mages of ages ago, they were originally intended as just a form of food, that was made in hopes of ending the famine of a civilization. They work as intended, being able to maintain their quality as tasty healthy food in any environment, but also, they can move, so that, if trained, they’d be able to serve masters who themselves can’t move.

As part of a flaw in their creation, they, more than any other ooze, found a quick and easy way to combine themselves. The positive is that big enough, they became capable of protecting themselves, and even their masters, however, a big jelly finds desire not only to feed others, but to consume them, as well.

They come together in different sizes, and can range from green to yellow, in terms of color. They completely lack sentience and are incapable of making strategies, but just being big seems to be effective most of the time.

False Appearance. While the Blueberry Vines are motionless, it is indistinguishable from regular underbrush and vines.

Traversable Form. Being made of a loose collection of vines, the Blueberry Vines may occupy the space of any creature. Additionally, other creatures may occupy its space. It can also move through any space at least one square wide without squeezing. While animated, the Blueberry Vines count as difficult terrain.

Actions

Multiattack. The Blueberry Vines can make two melee attacks: two slams, two bloats, or one slam and one bloat.

Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 10 ft., one target. Hit: 12 (2d6+5) bludgeoning damage. On a hit, the Blueberry Vines may attempt to grapple the target if it isn’t already grappling 2 or more creatures. The grappled target is restrained until the grapple ends.

Bloat. The Blueberry Vines stick a thick hose-like vine into a grappled creature’s mouth and squirt juice down their throat. The grappled creature is forcefully bloated with 8d12 lbs of juice, or half as much on a successful DC 13 Dexterity save.A creature that fails this dexterity save cannot form vocal spell components on their turn or communicate verbally as a leathery vine is firmly wedged in their mouth, preventing speech. The Blueberry Vines will continue to do this to any grappled creature until the first time they pass their third inflation limit.

Hazardous Internals. When cut, the milky sap spills out of the Bo-Vine’s wound and surrounds it. When suffering slashing damage, a 5 ft. area around the Bo-Vine becomes difficult terrain for creatures other than itself.

Camouflage. The Bo-Vine is indistinguishable from the ground while not moving.

Vines. The Bo-Vine can grapple up to four creatures of medium size or large at any one time.

Potent Poison. If the Bo-Vine causes a creature to surpass their Overfull limit, teh creature must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw. On a failure, the creature fattens for an amount equal to the milk they current hold with the gain focused entirely in their breasts, and they are poisoned until they either complete a short rest or empty their breasts of milk.

Actions

Multiattack. The Bo-Vine can make three Milk Vine or Lactic-needle attacks. If the Bo-Vine is grappling a creature, it can replace any of these attacks with Milk Pump targeting the grappled creature.

Milk Vine. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 14 (3d6+4) piercing damage. A huge or smaller creature struck by the Milk Vine is also grappled (escape DC 14), and lactates equal to the damage dealt.

Lactic-Needle. Ranged Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, range 80/320 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (2d4+4) piercing damage. The target lactates pints of milk equal to the damage dealt.

Milk Pump. Melee Weapon Attack: +7 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: Target is fed 7 (1d6+4) lbs of fatty food.

False Appearance. While the Feast Twig is motionless, it is indistinguishable from a regular singular vine.

Special Sap. Anyone fed past their regular capacity by the twig must make a DC 12 Constitution save to not fall into a food coma for the next 1d4 hours (or until their stomach empties from digestion). If the creature passes this save, but then is still fed to the point where the twig stops on their own, the creature must succeed a DC 15 Constitution save to not fall asleep for the next 1d4 hours.The twig has a limited amount of this special sap, running dry if it uses more than 15 lbs of it.

Actions

Multiattack. The Feat Twig makes two attacks: one grab and, if it hits, one feed against the grabbed target.

Grab. Melee Weapon Attack: +3 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: The target is grappled (escape DC 12). The Twig can only have one target grappled at a time. The grappled target cannot form vocal spell components on their turn or communicate verbally as the twig is firmly wedged in their mouth, preventing speech. No more than 3 twigs can be grappling a single target at the same time.

Feed. The Feast Twig squirts super calorie rich sap down their grappled target’s throat. The grappled creature is forcefed 1d4 lbs of super fatty (3 DP) food, or half as much on a successful DC 12 Constitution save.The Feast Twig will continue to do this to the grappled creature until the first time they take damage from overeating, where it will then stop and release the creature.

Feast Twig

Before growing into the large Feast Vines, there is a stage in this plant monster’s life where it is significantly smaller. Accustomed to living in the trees, twirling around their branches and attacking from above, the Feast Twigs aim to feed just like their older counterparts, using a much more limited set of tactics.

It can also move through any space at least one square wide without squeezing. While animated, the Feast Vines count as difficult terrain.

Stuffed Slumber. The Feast Vines will continue to feed any grappled creature until the first time they take damage from overeating, where it will then stop and release the creature unless they are still resisting or harming the vines.

Special Sap. A creature that is fed sap by the Feast Vines will find its stomach capacity temporarily increased by the special properties of it. If the Feast Vines force a creature to make an eating check for overstuffing capacity, they make that roll at advantage.

Special Sap II. In addition to increasing the stomach size of its victims, the sap contains mild sleep-inducing compounds. Anyone fed past the point of their regular capacity by the vines must make a DC 14 Constitution save to not fall into a food coma-like state for the next 1d4 hours (or until their stomach empties from digestion). Damage does not awaken them on its own, but lesser restoration or any effect that awakens sleeping creatures will.

Special Sap III. If the creature passes the save for Special Sap II but then is still fed to the point where the vines stop on their own, the creature must make a second DC 18 Constitution save to not fall asleep for the next 1d4 hours (or until their stomach empties from digestion). Damage does not awaken them on its own, but lesser restoration or any effect that awakesns sleeping creatures will.

Feed. The Feast Vines stick a thick, hose-like end of a vine into a grappled creature's mouth and squirt super calorie rich sap down their throat. The grappled creature is forcefed 2d4+3 lbs of super fatty (3 DP) food, or half as much on a successful DC 13 Dexterity save.A creature that fails this dexterity save cannot form vocal spell components on their turn or communicate verbally as a leathery vine is firmly wedged in their mouth, preventing speech.

Pumpkinhead

It is unknown exactly how this creature came to be. Rumors tell of a pumpkin patch. Not here, nor there, but elsewhere. A place where the gourds uproot themselves and amble around, imitating animals, and people. Eating one another, building societies and cultures, planting their seeds upon death for the sake of a new generation. This one's a mystery even to them, and a severe pain as well.

Bronze Guardians

Strange constructions of Bronze and Bone, these Skeletons have been covered in a protective layer of pure bronze. Their purpose is unclear, outside of their normal role in defending ancient tombs of some lost civilization. What's strange is the small amount of Lipomancy imbued in their construction, allowing them to drain weight from would be invaders to then attack them even more strongly. While not much of a threat on their own, they're very dangerous in a group. Besides, this small weight magic implies something about the type of person the tomb builders expected to show up.

Empowered Spear. Melee Weapon Attack: +5,one target. Hit: 6 (1d6+3) piercing damage plus 2 (1d3) force damage. This attack is only usable after a successful spear attack.

Shield Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +5,one target. Hit: 5 (1d3+3) bludgeoning damage. If the Skeleton is adjacent to one other Bronze Skeleton, the target is a Medium or smaller creature, it must succeed on a DC 14 Strength saving throw or be knocked back 5 feet.

This particular variety uses a phalanx shield and spear, able to stand strong with other Bronze Skeletons.

***The Masquerade.*** When the Masquerade is active, the carouser is indistinguishable from a drunken bar patron. Its alignment is Neutral, and it is considered to be a humanoid.

Undead Fortitude. If damage reduces the carouser to 0 hit points, it must make a Constitution saving throw with a DC of 5 + the damage taken, unless the damage is radiant or from a critical hit. On a success, the carouser drops to 1 hit point instead.

Character Break. If the carouser breaks the Masquerade, regardless of the circ*mstances, the carouser gains access to his Inebriating Odour feature.

Inebriating Odour. This feature only takes effect if the carouser has broken the Masquerade, as the dizzying smell of cheap moonshine begins to emanate from them. All non-undead creatures that enter, start their turn in, or pass, a 10 ft. radius area around the carouser must pass a DC12 Constitution save or fatten by 2d6 Lbs, and gain one level of exhaustion if the target has 2 or less. At the end of each of the target’s turns, they fatten for 2d6 Lbs per level of exhaustion.

(Variant) Juicy Garden. Sometimes berries grow differently, the variation being called Snowberry Dryads, and cause a target to Bloat with berry juice instead of gain weight when the goodberry surge is triggered.

Actions

Multiattack. The carouser can make any two actions.

Punch. Melee Weapon Attack: +5, one target. Hit: 6 (1d6+3) bludgeoning damage.

Tankard Toss. Ranged Weapon Attack: +2, range 30 ft., one target. Hit: 5 (1d10) force damage.

Imbibe (3/Day). The Clumsy Carouser cannot take this action if it has taken the Tankard toss action this turn. The carouser regains [[2d4]] HP, and its next attack gains a +2 bonus to both the attack and damage rolls.

Clumsy Carouser

All know the Masquerade as what it is. An endless feast, of which there is no equal on this land or any other. Yet, even though many travel to the manor, not all are permitted in. Some, even, are turned away rather violently. Killed, to make an example to the others that’d think of butting their way in. So it is they come here. To a lonely tavern, in an abandoned town. Cheap liquor, in quantities enough to draw their never ending sorrow, the only thing that can sate them anymore.
