Layer of Eggs
Unspeakable Things for Shadow of the Demon Lord
People in Copperfind fear the mines for good reason…
The Layer of Eggs introduces an entirely new adversary for use with Shadow of the Demon Lord. Here, I reached out to the incredibly talented Kim Van Deun to illustrate a creature from her imagination and then I created a story around the creature including the mechanics needed to use the thing in the game. What Kim turned over was a bizarre eyeless humanoid spider thing with a ring of teeth in its face, a fleshy sac on its back, and a bizarre organ that excretes eggs presumably to hatch into something of equal, awful significance. Shown in a cave, the image proposed some terrible underground thing that would cause considerable trouble for spelunkers, miners, and other deep delvers.
