“This bestiary is for storytellers and world-builders.” – Monster Manual introduction The D&D 5th Ed. Monster Manual releases on September 19th for those stores that take part in the WOTC WPN program, and on September 30th for everyone else. A few Monster Manuals saw the light of day at Gencon, and we’ve seen some bits […]

My homebrew 5e DM Screen

September 2, 2014 by

Since WOTC has yet to release a screen, I decided to make my own. I bought a customizable GM Screen from Amazon recently, and printed out some charts and stuff I found online.  One thing I did add to my screen now that 5e’s Bounded Accuracy makes monsters more threatening to PCs on a wider […]

Found this on Amazon: “Storm Over Baldur’s Gate: Sundering Adventure 1″ Are we looking at the first dndnext adventure? There’s no system in the product description, but it’s fair to say that 4e is dead when it comes to product releases… Interesting times….. Releases in 2013, but dndnext is more than likely arriving in 2014……

I recently purchased an Ipad, and am now using it at my gaming table.  My primary use for it is my gaming books, which are in PDF form, rather than print copies.  But this series of articles will not really be only about reading pdf’s (although I’ll cover pdf software eventually in this series), but […]

March 10, 2011 by

I originally posted this article and the accompanying sheets over at the Dragon Age Oracle blog, but wanted to bring them over here as well.  I hope someone gets some use out of them, and enjoys their old school look and flavor.   I recently got my hands on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon […]
