Monster - the Hoarding Swordbrush

    We've felt for a long time now that 5E is seriously lacking in plant monsters. The shambling mound is a classic, of course, but it's only one beastie; where are the rest? Here, we begin to slowly fill that gap, with a new photosynthetic monster for your party to chop up. We've also taken the opportunity to play with some grappling variation, since being wrapped by half a dozen angry vines is different from one muscly fist gripping you by the shirt, you know? We hope it makes for some tense encounters, and that that tension makes it all the more satisfying to prune away all its grabby bits. Enjoy!

Magic Item - Potion of Luck

     Dice manipulation is an interesting mechanic to play with in the rules of DnD. After all, the laws of the worlds facilitated by DnD are determined by the roll of dice; so if you want to represent abilities that manipulate fate, you often represent it with the manipulation of dice. Only problem is that manipulating the laws of the world on such a meta world is, surprisingly, pretty strong. So we're eager to present you this luck bringing magic item! Balance is already interpretive when it comes to magic items, so it'll be fine! Just give it to the player who needs it. Or, ya know, the Halfling.

Bard Subclass - College of Bonds

    Most adventuring parties grow close as they travel and do battle with evil; stress naturally breeds camaraderie, and so adventurers frequently make fast friends. The College of Bonds, meanwhile, takes this idea to its furthest extreme, turning these connections from a pattern into a powerful toolset for a party to communicate with and support each other, even over long distances. 
    This archetype turned out notably more wholesome than our usual, and we hope you enjoy a more positive release to balance out all our serious and horrific content. See you all next week!

Background - Wealthy Financier

    Backgrounds; the often neglected and unappreciated component of character creation. The utility of backgrounds lie in the rich inspiration they offer a character's personality, backstories, that makes a character tick! Trent the Sewerman has taken the team's first crack at a background with the Wealthy Financier. Have you ever gone adventuring and found yourself so exorbitantly wealthy that you start throwing gold at NPCs? Well, with this background, make that the whole point! We hope this homebrew inspires characters who have taken up adventuring to accumulate wealth, pursue business deals, and financially support local communities!

Monster - the Apathy

    As artists, we have all had days when we felt too unmotivated, too uncreative, or just too tired to produce anything, or even do anything. The Apathy is that feeling personified, seasoned liberally with psychic damage and debuffs. This creature should be a fun creature to use to confuse and disrupt your players, either as a solo monster sneaking up on them, or as a supporter of a more straightforward monster. We are, as always, eager to hear how it goes for you.

    This monster grew from a suggestion left by someone for us on Twitter, when we put out a request for projects people wanted to see made. We didn't get as much of a response as we had hoped for, but luckily for us, the suggestion we did get was a winner! We'll count it as a win, in the end.

Content Expansion - Expanded Racial Feats III

    Here we are, at the beginning of another month, with more racial feats! For June, the spotlight falls on the orc, as Jon the Kobold Wrangler builds us some new ways for orcs to express their devotion to their pantheon of gods. It's different from most of the other feats we've seen or made, so we're very curious what you think of it. Let us know below, and as we move on to the more esoteric races of 5E, tell us which races you want to see expanded first!
