Some people find winter depressing, but for me, spring is when my mood tends to really bottom out. The warmer weather makes my insomnia even worse, and the rain and the gloom wear me down.
This in turn makes me turn to gloomy music. Well, slightly more than usual, anyway. And few do that better than Metric.
London Halflife is one of my all-time favourites from them, or really any band. It’s one of only two songs I’ve ever listened to on repeat (the other being Live It Out, also by Metric).
My latest release on Dungeon Masters Guild is Demonic Bloodline, a chaotic and destructive new sorcerer subclass.
Demonic Bloodline sorcerers struggle eternally against the demonic fury in their hearts. This fury can be unleashed to grant them incredible power, but if used too often, it risks overwhelming them, consuming them from within.
It’s a high risk, high reward build that can be used to cause great harm to enemies, as well as harvest their life energy to sustain yourself, but it comes at a price. Many of your abilities deal your Demonic Fury damage to yourself, or even to your allies, as the price of maintaining them, rolling poorly with them, or using them too often.
Demonic Bloodline sorcerers also develop an iron will from the lifelong struggle to contain the rage of their blood, granting them the ability to turn failure into success on many crucial saving throws.
Demonic Bloodline also includes three new Abyssal magic items, featuring item cards by Eventyr Games.
And don’t forget to check out other DMs Guild I’ve worked on, including Valorie Goodwin’s Book of Heart.
