Hey, everyone. I'm new to the forums and wanted to share a project that I've been working on. (I've done a few searches on the forum, and I haven't seen them mentioned much...I hope I'm not stepping on any toes)
Slivers are one of my favorite creatures from Magic. Everyone either loves or hates them. They amass a swarm of creatures with ridiculous abilities that they share with each other.
This is not finished by any means. Still, needs a LOT of playtesting. Which there has been none (that I'm aware of). The "Sliver Encounter Multiplier" table needs to be tested. I still need to flesh out the lair actions of the greater slivers and build example lairs for them.
What I have got done so far: 48 fully fleshed out Slivers for D&D 5e (that includes a handful of unique "Iconic D&D Monster" themed slivers).

Thank you for the kind words.
I've taken a bit of a break from working on this due to RL obligations. I should however have the free time to pick it back up.
That being the case, I could really use feedback. Even if it's theoretical brainstorming.
The next step I'll be working on is sample adventures to make getting real feedback a lot easier (at least one for each greater sliver). As I'm new to DM'ing and creating content like this, I'll need time to do research (the creatures and mechanics are the easy part).

While I'm doing research to try and figure out how to write adventures to test these guys out. I had an idea to make "younger" versions of the greater slivers, to be able to introduce them a bit earlier.
Here's a list of what is still planned to come (in no particular order): - Sample adventures for testing (TESTING!!!) - More lore and fluff - Fill out the Encounter Tables - At least 4 lair adventures - More Slivers? - Original Art...
My question to you guys. Is there anything missing from the supplement that I don't already have planned for it that you'd like to see?

Done a bit of restructuring. Added some encounter tables to make testing super easy, as well as a few other useful tables. Embellished on some fluff, and laid out a few plans.
*Newest Slivers* Barbed, Cautery, Dementia, Frenetic, Fungus, Gemhide, Groundshaker, Harmonic, Hunter, Leeching, and Lymph (Necrotic, Plague, Quilled, Telekinetic, and Ward are still to come...and I still need to update tables with the new sliver data).

- more restructuring - finished up the remaining outstanding slivers (new total of 67) - added 29 new magic items and 1 artifact, the Hivestone (all MTG Card conversions) - also added my starter list of 12 new cantrips
Here's an updated PDF (link in OP is always updated):

That's awesome. I'd love any feedback you can give. I'm currently talking with WotC Support about being able to publish this through the DMsGuild. Super Excited! Things are happening...
*Update* Talks took a turn, which I totally understand. Will be going through a name change, and some retooling of the fluff, but will stay mostly the same. Can't use their IP on DMsGuild (even if it's free), should have seen that coming.
I've never played Magic, but these remind me of a mix of the tyranids and the tau from warhammer 40k. Regardless, this stuff is beautifully written and I'm already making plans to include these beauties in my world. Great work!
