Esper Genesis, Threats Database Part 2

I’m back with more information about the Threats Database for Esper Genesis. Last time, I talked about some of the creatures featured in the book and how they stacked up to what’s already available and what you might need for an Esper Genesis campaign. Today I keep going and I delve into some of the weirder stuff in the Threat Database.

Esper Genesis Threats Database, Part 1

Esper Genesis is a science-fiction D&D 5e game that I’ve been excited to see grow better and better since its launch. They have a series of adventures out and another on the way, plus pregenerated characters and a bunch of great digital resources.

An attentive reader pointed out that I didn’t come back to this, so today I’m coming back to it! If you missed it, last time we looked at races, classes, and backgrounds in this game. Today we’re looking at setting, stuff, and aliens!

The Eagles

I’m gearing up for the epic conclusion of my Adventures in Middle-earth campaign and I need to add a new element thanks to some enterprising and unpredictable players. Our Beorning PC had already pushed Beorn to send troops to the players’ redoubt in the Mountains of Mirkwood and didn’t want to risk his position among the Beornings by pushing harder. So, not wanting the player to feel left out, I gave him a chance to talk to the Lord of the Eagles and request aid.
