Plane Shift: Kaladesh

I love that Wizards of the Coast is finally combining their properties for projects. I like it even more because they're free. Today Plane Shift: Innistrad and Plane Shift: Zendikar have been joined by a new MTG to D&D supplement, Plane Shift: Kaladesh.

Kaladesh is a magical plane of artificers and crafters. It is the perfect setting to use the Unearthed Arcana: Artificer in.

This Plane Shift discusses how to fit the PHB backgrounds and classes in the setting. It also includes a new sorcerous origin: pyromancer. Being a haven for artificers, there's a new magic item type discussed, Aether-powered devices. There are rules for inventing, manufacturing, buying, and selling these items. Two invention-related feats are also provided.

The pdf includes new versions of several races: dwarves, humans, and elves. There are two new races, the short-lived aetherborn and the innovative vedalken (who believe that nothing can be perfect, but that doesn't mean you should try to improve).

Like previous Plane Shift pdfs, the Bestiary chapter discusses adapting existing monsters to Kaladesh. It also includes new monsters, like the gremlin, sky leviathan, and servo.

Ash Wednesday - Survivalist Quality

This post was inspired by the national treasure that is Burt Gummer and Ash's crazy militia friend from season 1 of Ash vs Evil Dead.

----------------------

Survivalist (5 pt. Quality)
No zombie apocalypse, Ruskie invasion, or machine uprising is going to stop you. You know how to survive. Sure, some might think you're crazy, but it'll be you laughing when they end comes.

Survivalists get +1 to one physical attribute and +1 to one mental attribute. They also get +1 to the Notice and Mr. Fix-It skills. They get +2 to Gun Fu and Knowledge.

On the downside, they tend to be paranoid conspiracy theorists. They have Mental Problems: Severe Paranoia and Mental Problems: Mild Delusions.

---------

Don't forget I've done Burt stats for Cinematic Unisystem, thought it was a few years ago so he doesn't have this quality.

Chicken Attack (LotFP)

Like my Shia LaBeouf post, this is more for the weird side of Lamentations of the Flame Princess and not so much the horrific aspect of the game.


"I can control all animals, but chickens are the best."

The Chicken 
Master Armor: 12,  HP: 15, Movement 120'1 fist (1d2), Morale 9

Little is known of the merciful man known as the Chicken Master. He claims that he can control all animals and that plants follow him as well. There is definitely something unhinged about him, which can be seen when he talks about chickens, but ultimately he is a champion of goodness. He's never seen without his loyal attack chicken.

Attack Chicken
Armor: 15,  HP: 30, Movement 150'/Climb 120'1 fist (1d10), Morale 12
