5e Monsters: Korred and Froghemoth

April 24, 2015 by


Continuing my conversion of older D&D monsters to 5e, here are two interesting monsters for you to use in your 5th ed. game: the korred (for low level play), and the froghemoth (made for higher level parties to face). The korred are forest fey, fond of singing, dancing and nature. Thematically, they are close to […]

Couple of homebrew 5e monsters…

March 23, 2015 by


I went on a bit of a monster kick this weekend, only to see just how easy it was to take old AD&D monsters and turn them into 5e creatures. Here’s what I worked on… First, the Yuan-Ti Histachii. My version of this creature (a 1/2 Challenge monster) comes from the one found in the […]

Rethinking Initiative

“You enter a room, the smell in here’s musky.  The ground is covered in a fine dust, and you can see footprints, along with a few drops of fresh blood.” “The creatures must have come through here.

September 29, 2014 by


In a previous post I wrote about setting my home game in the Forgotten Realms around the time period of the 2nd edition version of D&D, which would put us in Faerun in 1368DR. For those of you keeping track at home, the original boxed set of the Forgotten Reams placed the timeline at 1357DR, […]

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 […]

Has The First DnD Next Product Been Spoiled By Amazon?

November 27, 2012 by


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……
