In this series, I’m talking character idea’s, some that I came up with ages ago, and some that I’ve found through poking at the D&D 5e books looking for cool combos and abilities. I lay them out in fair detail in the hopes that someone else can take up the reigns of these characters. While I would love to, it is highly unlikely that I can play all of them, or even many, before my days expire.
Today, we have Eias the Penniless, a Human Fighter Monk with but a stick to his name but who is also as deadly as any other warrior wandering the kingdoms.
Every week on Thursdays – or as often as I can – I muse on the state of Cryx, the lists I’m building, casters I’m taking problems I encounters and generally everything to do with the Nightmare Empire of Warmachine.
This week, I went to a tournament over the weekend, and thought I didn’t do good, there were tons of lessons to be learned from the showing. Lets take a look.

When I was first testing Scaverous, I was having a pretty good time into most heavy infantry. It was hard to maintain coherency and cohesion when models were getting Choking ashed, pulled apart by Black Ogrun, and other nasty effects. Now, though, there is a single strange problem that my list has to contend with that I don’t – right now – have an answer for. Let’s look.
Last weekend, I was able to get out and attend a tournament for the first time in a while, at least the first weekend of September. I took the pair I’ve been taking for ages, Scaverous and Asphyxious 3 9 Slayers, and had a blast! I’m going to go over each of the 4 games and the results, so strap in, this might be a long one!
Even after the Exalted Host CID models, of which there were really only 4, PP did end up with a number of other models they were also tweaking as the CID Moved along. A number of these underwent changes from week to week, so I won’t go through all of them, I’m just going to comment on the look of the models at the time the CID finished, according to the final document. Let’s get to it!
It has been more than two years since I wrote about Skorne, but I figured that now, as the CID for Skorne’s Exalted Host drives to an end, I should write something about it, and how I feel. So, Here we are. let’s do this rundown, bit by bit.
I enjoy creating characters, perhaps more than I should, for D&D, 5e in particular, but I also like creating characters in pretty much every system known. 3.5/Pathfinder are especially crunchy characters to make, but they tend to lack a lot of the soul of the characters in 5e, I find. I dunno what it is – nothing wrong with a d20 system, but its a very different character creation process.
Well. Lets go then! Today, my first of – Hopefullly – many Character concepts that I want to play in D&D – Brox, the Dragonborn Javelineer
So, I went on a podcast a while back and was invited to talk about my favorite caster, So I chose to talk long and loud about Scaverous because I think he’s one of the best options that currently exist in the faction for a lot of problems. The Podcast has specific criteria that they want to go over, so I created an outline to make sure I knew what I was talking about. That is what turned into this article, and I’m sure there will be plenty of things I don’t get to on the cast, that I get to here, and vice versa. The goal was to publish this at the same time as the Podcast (available here) but due to some technical hiccups, It’s hidden itself until now!
