Myconid – Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition

by wolvercote66



I’m running Tyranny of Dragons at a local game store and I’m finding that I need some additional content. Myconids are an old favorite of mine from the classic “Slave Lords” modules. While I’m on the subject of that series of modules, I think I’ll have to whip up some Aspis in the future too. I’d like to see those monsters make a return.
