Realm Guide 16: Realm of the Medusae

By on 16 June 2014

For thousands of years the medusae have slumbered beneath the Statue Hills, waking only once every century or so to check on their minions and put their long-term plans into action. The return of the ophidae has given them new hope, for now it is possible to sire a new generation. Soon their eggs will hatch. Soon the hatchlings will grow to adulthood. Soon the medusae will emerge from the subterranean homes to conquer the surrounding desert.

Inside you’ll find:

  • A brief history of the realm.
  • An insight into medusae hibernation.
  • An exploration of the many hazards that await explorers.
  • A look at the medusae’s military.
  • 10 new locations to explore, including the Grand Temple of Ss’essliss and the Valley or the Oracle.
  • 1 new major NPC.
  • Ideas for why heroes may visit the Realm of the Medusae and adventure seeds.
  • 1 new minor deity – Handarsaga, the god of stasis.
  • 2 new monsters and guidelines for creating variant medusae.
  • Notes for the GM on how to create living statues and stone golems.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
