Today 2 new d&d 5e spells, for my soon-to-release compendium Legends of the Roundtable. Mordred is one of the main antagonists in the legend of King Arthur, so it was only fitting to make a spell akin to his cold dark soul. Forgiveness on the other hand is a much more gentle spell, meant to mend your allies, the balance is always odd to find for this sort of spell, but I think using a reaction to reroll the save makes sense and plays well into the action economy. Take Care!
This set of magic items imbues its wearer with ancient natural powers. When worn, this armor transforms the user into a powerful being with unyielding strength and unbreakable resolve. This set of 3 items works in tandem to make you unbreakable. Most of the effects are listed here, but the last item is on my Patreon (gotta give supporters some extra goodies after all).
With the full set of armor and weapon, the wearer becomes a true guardian, and a pretty mean one at that. F
Here's a ranger that may be inspired by a certain Indiana Jones.
Forge your destiny as a guardian of magic with the Relic Keeper Conclave ranger subclass. As a member of this ancient order, you are tasked with safeguarding the powerful magic artifacts of the realm and using them to defend your kin against malevolence. Although nothing prevents you from attacking them instead ;) With the ability to unlock the full power of these relics in battle, you will become a true master
In an effort to make more spells for sword & sorcery type characters, I've created 2 new spells:
The 'Faerie's Blessing' spell is a versatile spell that allows the caster to imbue their weapon with fey energy, causing it to fly through the air and attack enemies at a distance. This spell is ideal for melee characters with poor ranged options (*cough* Barbarians *cough*). The 'Duelist's Blessing' spell is a protective spell that infuses the caster's blade with divine energy,
While working on Steinhardt's Guide, we're also making some additional content on the side, notably Legends of the Roundtable. Turns out spriggans are also part of the legend of King Arthur, and were not, in fact, invented by Skyrim.
Which makes sense, but surprised me nonetheless. I definitely played a bit too much of that game back in the days haha.
Turns out in the legends, they are quite tiny, but also quite angry. Some sort of vegan dwarves if you will. You’ll notice t
I’m having fun creating some of the legendary knights of the roundtable, like Galahad or Lancelot. I’m creating 2 versions for each.
One where they are their normal self, and one where they are corrupted by Morgan Le Fay. It allows GMs to choose what to throw at their players. Will your players face a holy warrior or a twisted scion of corruption? (The corrupted versions are Patreon exclusives, gotta reward those who support the work after all.)
Enjoy! Evan | MonkeyDM #mons
Here’s another subclass part of our upcoming Legends of the Roundtable Compendium Path of the Green Man, and not Green Person, because the latter sounds a bit off. Unlike the Hulk, you draw your powers from Nature, healing your wounds and augmenting your power in the midst of battle. Also, the level 6 ability is once per long rest. Grapple your enemies. Smash their face in. Slowly break their body while doing so. Take Care!

We’re creating a massive series of spells for betrayers, inspired by Morgan le Fey, one of the most well-known backstabbers in history.
Now her schemes caused kingdoms to fall, but what if her magic could do that literally? This is a more unique spell, incredibly situational, but very fun for villains to use, if not players. Imagine relaxing in a bath when all of a sudden your house explodes, pretty surreal experience I’d say. Enjoy!

Unicorns are universally revered as sacred creatures, so we need to kill them.
Not really, but in case your players happen to do so, here's a handy item that lists exactly what happens following the ingestion of such blood. If you do play with alignment in your game, an effect that you can add is the following:
'When you drink a unicorn's blood, your alignment changes from good to neutral, or from neutral to evil. If you are already evil, you regain half as
Hello everyone! Everybody knows what trolls are, especially in D&D, they are a pretty nasty bunch with incredible regenerative abilities. Since they are also very common in myths and legends, notably as the troll guarding the bridge, we decided to include them in our Legend of the Roundtable book. Now the thing is, there's also a very popular ogre, which also happens to have green skin, so, for the sake of fun, we decided to make a subrace dedicated to him. Take Care! -Monkey
Hello everyone! As part of our upcoming Legends of the Roundtable, we are designing some new spells, including the 2 that you see here. Mass Shield isn't a new idea I'm sure, it is an incredibly strong spell, compared to a regular shield, which is why it was bumped all the way to level 5. Herd the Flock is great to reposition your party if they over-extended themselves in battle. I'm also realizing that I didn't put it on the bard spell list, but it should totally be there. T
Hello everyone! While working on Steinhardt's Guide, we're also making some additional content on the side, notably Legends of the Roundtable. This is a book that's all about the legend of king Arthur and gives it a fun twist by allowing Morgan to win unlike in the classic story. One of the most well-known figures in that legend is the lady of the lake. Funny enough, if you take the setting in a futuristic era like Eberron, you could call her the Artificer Patron and it would
[Steinhardt's Guide to the Eldritch Hunt] Hello everyone! The fun concept behind this spell, I fell biking and would’ve busted my knees, I wasn’t wearing a “coque” which is a kneepad, but the translation would be more “shell”, and that’s what inspired the spell. Just kidding, the real story is that I randomly came up with it, but that sounds less fun. Anyway, this spell is meant to protect those who are on death’s door, or funnily enough, that fall asleep hard. Since you can
[Steinhardt's Guide to the Eldritch Hunt] Hello everyone! Druids are a bit lacking in their spellist, so I figured a few new additions wouldn’t hurt. Naturalize is based on a fairly popular MtG card called pacify, which does what it says on the tin. The original art for it inspired the spell, melting armor into nothingness. Enemies wearing armor isn’t all the common that is not natural armor is not very common, so this makes for a very niche spell, but against a foe in heavy
[Steinhardt's Guide to the Eldritch Hunt] Hello everyone! The new template for my next compendium is mostly done, as we can see here, and to celebrate here's a new barbarian subclass! Turns out, I'm not very good at celebrating and made a tragic subclass, but new barbarian content, soooo... yay? Channel your sadness into rage, tether yourself to your foes, and make them feel the pain you feel inside! Take Care, -Monkey #subclass #dnd5e #dungeonsanddragons #barbarian (Dungeons
[Steinhardt's Guide to the Eldritch Hunt] Hello everyone! Today a new monster, The Screechwing. This monstrosity is born of the madness that plagues the world. Once human this creature fell to insanity, reverting to a bestial state, although it hasn’t forgotten its swordsmanship talents. The ideal scenario to put these creatures in is when players are walking across a roof in a bustling city. They can easily overwhelm the players with their screech, before swarming them with
[Steinhardt's Guide to the Eldritch Hunt] Hello everyone, Long time no talk, I’ve been away for a bit, had a big project to take care of (Thank you again for the massive support on Steinhardt’s Guide!). Talking about that book, this spell is straight from it. As I love to use darker magic in my games, an iron maiden made of bones that you can trap opponents in seems to fit the bill. It’s a different take on Banishment, which traps the enemy on the field, and not in another di
