The Lich-Queen’s forces are coming to your world. Roll 6d6 and get the session started.
Inspired by the July RPG Blog Carnival
Why are they invading?
- Illithid Infestation
- Githzerai Haven
- Red Dragon Cabal
- Key crossroads World in greater planar campaign
- The Lich-Queen has taken offense to one of your deities
- Someone stole a Silver Sword and won’t return it
Githyanki Random Encounters
- Red Dragon Air Cav Wing
- Warlock Summoning Platoon
- Warlock Skirmish Squad
- Silver Sword Battalion
- Illithid Hunting Posse
- Psionic Urban Unit
The above Githyanki are looking for a:
- Gate to their home
- Illithid or Githzarai
- A place to allow red dragon steeds to graze
- An escaped prisoner
- Stolen red dragon eggs
Something from Githyanki culture that is catching on
- Board game (like chess but with no kings, only a single Lich-Queen who eats pieces from both sides if they travel too far)
- Disdain for religion
- Hatred of Illithid
- Bigotry against Githzarai
- Gith poetry
Something from your world that is catching on with the Githyanki
- A goddess
- A type of music
- A drink
- A drug
- A battle tactic
They’ve brought some kind of fungal infestation with them from another world that causes:
- Trees to spread their roots through the lower planes and become a gate to hell.
- Vines to choke animals to death, gain the hit points of the beasts it kills, becoming stronger and stronger until burned to the root.
- Vegetables glow different color based on the alignment of those nearby.
- Ponds to become scrying pools that show the nearest Illithid or Githyanki
- A usually edible vegetable to cause a character to make a save or else hallucinate for 1d6 hours, also causing you to re-roll your hit points or one stat (GM’s’ choice) depending on how you reacted to the hallucination.
- Causing all trees to become Treants.

This is well done. The Githyanki are one of the truly classic invasive species from gaming. Thanks for participating in the blog carnival!
Thank you. I like the writing prompts; they’re fun.
