Issue 5 Contents

Issue 5 is jam-packed with a lot of content (24 pages worth!) and contains the following feature articles:

Creating a Pantheon – Get your deities in order. Create a panteon from scratch.

Weapon Spotlight – Taking another look at the iconic mace.

Holy Symbols – Not all symbols are created equal.

Turning Up The Heat – An alternative system for turning undead.

Organised Chaos – How chaos has a home within organised (and lawful) religions. This article is by the awesome Gary Smith.

Wayward Followers – Punishments for followers who lose their way. How to get them back on track.

Align Your Campaigns – Another use for alignments within your campaign world.

Location, Location, Location – We take a second look at the town of Riverbend. The map is by the talented artist Alex the Map Maker (see below for larger versions of the map included in this issue). This also includes some personalities of Riverbend.

Twisted Table – This table looks at a random table for starting off your campaign. This table is by Tale of the Manticore.


What would d12 Monthly be like without some maps? The Riverbend map is by Alex the Map Maker and can be downloaded for personal use.

The map of the temple of Ferast is by Christian Eichhorn.
