Last month, I introduced a new monthly column I am contributing to This Is My Game. The column, No Assembly Required, features a monster that can be inserted into a Dungeon & Dragons 4th Edition campaign. Each monster in the series includes comprehensive information including Origin, Lore, Combat Tactics, Power Descriptions and Stat Block. Visit This Is My Game to review this month’s monster, Aurora Izel.
Aurora Izel is a Paragon-Tier monster, but I used her for the finale of my Heroic Tier campaign. Her origin presents the adventuring party with interesting questions regarding diversity and religious tolerance. One of the driving forces for creating Aurora for my campaign was to increase the amount of diversity in my campaign, both in terms of gender and other factors. Below, the concept art for Aurora can be seen, which was illustrated by the spectacular Grant Gould.
Enjoy the new monster, and please post any questions or comments here or at This Is My Game, and come back next month for a new Heroic Tier monster
