So the May update is a little late, but this past month has been a perfect storm of COVID weirdness, a lot of overtime at work, and … a lot of new content. Over the past month, I have been going over the older adventures and adding NPCs & monsters that really should be included in the compendium. Fortunately, I had some help from some new friends and I was able to get a lot more done than I ever could have on my own. Now, onto the changes.

Policy Changes

  • Moved files to Google Drive from Dropbox.
  • I’m no longer referencing the System Reference Document. References to page numbers will point to the PHB or DMG.
  • I’m no longer referencing the Elemental Evil Player’s Companion. References to page numbers will point to Volo’s, MToF, EGTW, and XGE.
  • NPCs and Monsters for adventures will be included if:
    • the CR is changed due to any number of possible changes.
    • there are changes to attacks, actions, reactions, and spells.
    • there are three or more changes to AC, HP, resistances, immunities, senses, etc.

Content Changes

  • Thousands of formatting changes to improve consistency among types. (Ongoing improvements)
  • Added comments for NPC/Monsters purposefully not included with a reference to the base class.
  • Dropped all mechanical servant beasts
  • Changed the SRD references to their PHB and DMG counterparts.
  • Moved the magic items to the DMG from the SRD/PHB.
  • Merged all of the Armors of Resitance. Users can alter the title for the specific type.
  • Moved the EEPC spells to Xanathar’s Guide to Everything.
  • Moved the EEPC races to the Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount.
  • Added the ‘Hollow One’ supernatural gift as a ‘Feat’ under Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount.
  • Created Ancient, Adult, and Young Shadow Dragons (Chromatics and Metallics).
  • Created Ancient and Adult Dragolich (Chromatics Only).
  • Completed audit of NPCs and Monsters for:
    • Lost Mine of Phandelver
    • Hoard of the Dragon Queen
    • Rise of Tiamat
    • Storm King’s Thunder
    • Tomb of Annihilation
    • Waterdeep: Dragon Heist
    • Curse of Strahd
    • Princes of the Apocolypse
    • Out of the Abyss
    • Dragon of Icespire Peak
    • Tales from the Yawning Portal
    • Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount
    • Ghosts of Saltmarsh
  • Added the Yklwa from Tomb of Annihilation.
  • Added the generic animated objects
  • Fixed the Archmage
  • Removed duplicate devil/demon lords (Orcus, etc)
  • Added Battle Balloon to Acq. Inc.
  • Change type of all vehicles, ? to just ‘vehicle’. (need to add sizes as a trait for all)

Planned for June

  • Audit the NPC/Monsters for the following adventures:
    • Kreko’s Way
    • Lost Laboratory of Kwalish
    • Orrey of the Wanderer
    • Infernal Machine Rebuild
  • Lots more cleanup to the NPC/Monster blocks to standardize them.
  • Add base class for adventure NPC/Monsters to make it easy to find these variants when searching for the base class. (ie. Sir John -> Sir John (Knight)
