We talk about the limits of polymorphing, playing characters with no impulse control, and the perils of running modules you did not write.

Curious as cats and shy as deer, pixies go where they please. They like to spy on other creatures and can barely contain their excitement around them. The urge to introduce themselves and strike up a friendship is almost overwhelming; only a pixie’s fear of being captured or attacked stays in its hand. Those who wander through a pixie’s glade might never see the creatures, yet hear the occasional giggle, gasp, or sigh.

Pixies array themselves like princes and princesses of the fey, wearing flowing gowns and doublets of silk that sparkle like moonlight on a pond. Some dress in acorns, leaves, bark, and the pelts of tiny woodland beasts. They take great pride in their regalia and beam with joy when they are complimented on their ensembles.”

In this episode, we are joined by Matt Brown.

You may know him from Split the Party and its self titled Actual play series which has just wrapped its 4th season, The TTRPG themed morning show Good Morning RPG on twitch, or their past chaotic shenanigans reacting to their cast member George on the latest Australian season of Beauty and the Geek.

Kill Every Monster is a 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons podcast. In each episode, we are joined by a guest to discuss the lore, mechanics, and story potential of classic D&D creatures.
