Miracle Workers

Hey, sorry for not posting in so long, things have been busy with college and work. Anyway, I have been working on revising JABOM (my house rules), ad came up with this potential new version of the priest/cleric class. It isn't playtested, but I thought I'd let y'all know how its turning out. Also featuring bad MSpaint art, because why not!!

Miracle Worker
You are a holy person, following strict rules of your faith to the letter. Through this piety and reverence of the divine, you are able to create miracles.

Write down 3 religious laws that your Miracle Worker must follow. This could include not eating certain foods, not wearing armor, not killing except in self defense, etc. Negotiate with the GM what these rules are, as they should be something that is legitimately somewhat challenging to maintain. If you ever break one of these laws, you immediately lose all of your special abilities. The GM should decide an appropriate way to regain your abilities. You also must choose 3 enemies of your religion (negotiate with your GM to make sure these categories are not too broad). When facing off against enemies of your faith, you gain a +1d6 bonus to attack, damage, and saving throw rolls, as well as a +2 bonus to your AC.


At first level you know two spells, chosen from the Spells section, and have 1 Magic Point per day with which to cast them. Casting a spell expends Magic Points, which is restored to full at the beginning of each new day. For each level you obtain, you gain another Magic Point and learn a new spell, chosen from the Spells section.

A Blogging Challenge: MSpaint Monster Manual

I'm not an artist, at least not a visual one, though I often wish I was. I enjoy doodling in MSpaint a lot, it helps pass the time and makes me happy, but nothing I make in there is really truly "art".

So the other day I thought, "Screw it, just doodle 5 monsters from the AD&D monster manual in MSpaint and put it on your blog. It isn't an art gallery, its a place for me to express myself and goof off", and so I did.

And I realized that I bet a lot of the rest of the blogosphere is similar, not having too much art experience and wanting to create something, but not really feeling competent in their abilities and expressing themselves. So here's a blogging challenge or whatever; crack open a monster manual or bestiary and just doodle a couple of the monsters there in MSpaint. This is just for funsies, you can spend as little or as much time as you want, go hogwild!

To kick things off, here are 5 of my MSpaint monsters!

I might do more of this, I might not. And who knows if this will actually take off or not, this could be the first and last MSpaint Monster Manual post. In any event, enjoy the garbage below!
