The Good Friends of Jackson Elias, Podcast Episode 115: Shub-Niggurath

6 hours 28 min ago
 Shub-NiggurathPublisher: Paul Fricker
Episode 115 – The Good Friends are transformed by Shub-Niggurath

We’re back and we’re dancing around in the woods, bleating with ecstasy, smearing our mutating bodies with Mother’s milk. This episode is our discussion of the Lovecraftian deity, Shub-Niggurath. It is part of our ongoing look at the gods of the Mythos, continuing from our recent episode about Dagon.

Shub-Niggurath appealed to us greatly, as she is so loosely defined in the original fiction. Her evocative soubriquet of The Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young has inspired many writers since Lovecraft to find interesting uses for her. Her roles and identities in games and fiction are almost as numerous as her progeny.

In our discussion, we try to pin down where Shub-Niggurath came from and how she has grown and mutated in fiction and RPGs. We then build on this to offer some ideas about how you could use Shub-Niggurath in your own games. Her role as a corrupted and corrupting force of nature and her connection to witch cults make her suitably fecund inspiration, birthing many abominable ideas.

The show may contain occasional swearing and is thus NSFW.

Runtime: 67 min

Previous episodes include discussions of 7th Edition Call of Cthulhu rules, stories by H.P.Lovecraft, Gencon, interviews with game designers and much more.

Adventure Shorts, Volume 6 (5e)

8 hours 2 min ago
Adventure Shorts, Volume 6 (5e)Publisher: R&D Adventures

Adventure Shorts Volume Six is series of five encounters, written for the Fifth Edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game. Each can be played as a stand-alone encounter or dropped into an existing adventure or campaign. Although we’re calling these encounters, some are a little longer, most notably the Unwelcome Neighbors encounter, which is much like a mini dungeon crawl. This particular encounter may take more than one gaming session to complete.

As in previous volumes, we’re providing balanced encounters and treasure for a party of five characters of levels five, seven, or nine. The encounters include some new monsters and NPCs, traps, obstacles, and treasure set in interesting environments to challenge your Fifth Edition players. We’ve also included printer-friendly maps that can be used to set up your own player grids. The encounter titles and descriptions are as follows:

1. The Well - Town residents are puzzled by the disappearance of
another well bucket and are looking for someone to help solve the mystery.
2. Thieves - A group of soldiers has information about a string of recent crimes and a notice which has just posted with a reward for the capture of those responsible.
3. The Cracked Skull - The Cracked Skull is an old winery, which has been renamed, and is now being used as a tavern, and a hideout.
4. Unwelcome Neighbors - Local authorities seek help investigating several disturbances by locals living out in the countryside.
5. Waylaid - A distraught and frantic group of travelers asks for help after a member of their party goes missing during the night. 

We’re excited to share these new encounters with you and we hope you have as much fun playing them as we did writing them.

Happy Adventuring!

Regular price: $1.99
Bundle price: $0.99
Format: PDF
This booklet is dedicated to expanding the options for familiars available to arcane spellcasters like Sorcerors and Wizards and is inspired by a number of the concepts introduced in Skirmisher Publishing LLC’s ENnie-nominated The Noble Wild.

Weekly Wonders: Wendigo Corruption

 Wendigo CorruptionPublisher: Necromancers of the Northwest

Endless Hunger and Eternal Chill!

 

                Corruptions, from Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Horror Adventures, give players a new way to indulge their dark fantasies and take the role of gothic monsters, infecting themselves with some taint or darkness, and presenting the tantalizing question of whether to struggle against the corruption, or embrace it, and allow themselves to bask, however briefly, in its dark power. While Horror Adventures presents 11 different corruptions to choose from, there are many more potential sources of corruption that could potentially be explored.

 

                This book presents the wendigo corruption, a brand new corruption featuring unique progression rules, and 10 new manifestations that are flavorfully connected to the wendigo. Curse others with hunger, transform into smoke and wind, unleash frightening howls that spread terror to your victims, and more!
