DUNGEON MUSER’S NOTES
Earlier this week one of my WordPress buddies, the talented Dr. Necrotic, requested that I turn my attention to the two mysteries I have featured this week.

Of the two, the Lunar Mystery proved to be the more challenging conversion, largely due to the fact that the “mystery spells” in its Pathfinder version were all unique Pathfinder spells. I tried to maintain the “lunacy” theme that the Pathfinder version in the spells I selected for the 5E version, but I will leave it to the good Doctor to tell me if I maintained the flavor of Pathfinder version. 

RESOURCEFUL RESKINNING
These mysteries are each designed to fit specific themes and, as such, it is unlikely that they could be easily reskinned.

MYSTERIES OF THE SUN AND MOON
Ok, stop me if you think you’ve heard this one before, but…next week we return to my Iron Gods conversions.

Until next time, I remain;
