The last two posts of 2010 will be my favorite posts and your favorite posts. This isn’t a popular blog by most any standard, and most of you have started reading or subscribed in the last few months. I’ll point to my favorites and hopefully you’ll enjoy those as well.
Rethinking the Ettin and its companion post with some examples was fun to write. I think the possibilities for this sort of creature are endless and if I could use one in every adventure, I would. Zak S. even used the basic idea for a session.
Junkie Medusa is something I wrote when I was reading through my boxed set of the Lamentations of the Flame Princess Weird Fantasy RPG. This is the third part of the Rethinking Medusa series. Looking back at it now, I am even more determined to work her into an adventure.
My first series of posts on monsters, the Hydrae posts, remains a favorite. I will definitely make the Lernean Hydra and some of its former heads a powerful agent in a campaign world.
My first attempt at creating a setting involved mashing up the Norse Mythos with the Medieval Church. It’s still clumsy and needs detail, but I’m short on time to research and update it until late spring. Still, I used it as part of my background for running Death Frost Doom and it seemed to work pretty well. That setting is also a favorite.
My all-time favorite post to date remains the Create Familiar spell. With a face like that, it’s a shoo-in.
So, navel gazing halfway done.
