Episode 12 – Invoke Daniel J. Bishop
Episode 3 (Invoke Michael Curtis) brought you the Discopila, and that is the last monster Spellburn has given you on-air. Never one to shirk a duty, though, or to attempt to compete with DCC luminaries Michael Curtis or Harley Stroh, I will give you two monsters for the price of one. Although created off-air, I hope you find them useful. – Daniel J. Bishop
The first monster was created using James Raggi’s excellent Random Esoteric Creature Generator. The second monster is a conversion from the fantasy ruleset I was working on (mentioned in the episode) before I discovered Dungeon Crawl Classics.
Episode 3 – Invoke Michael Curtis
On this week’s episode Judges Jim, Jobe, and Jeffrey, along with writer and game designer par excellence Michael Curtis, crafted a monster live on the air. This exercise started with a roll for a room from Michael Curtis’ book The Dungeon Alphabet to set the “feel” of the monster. The result was a spell amplification room, described as a room where spells cast have the maximum effect. Using that as a the basis, we followed the sage advice of Michael: one can never go too far wrong with a gigantic Robert E. Howard-esque snake.
