Converting the 2e Realms to 5e

September 29, 2014 by

14

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, […]

“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 […]

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?

Found this on Amazon: “Storm Over Baldur’s Gate: Sundering Adventure 1″ Are we looking at the first dndnext adventure?

Releases in 2013, but dndnext is more than likely arriving in 2014……

Last weekend our Friday night DM surprised us with a fantastic pair of maps made from Terraclips and D&D tiles for our campaign finale. I had never heard or seen these strange tile-and-clip things, so I asked him about it. I was also surprised by how sturdy the structure was – he picked it up […]

In my previous post on this series, I wrote about Index Cards, a screenwriting app suitable for organizing details of your campaign.  Now, I’m going to show you Goodreader, the app I use for reading, organizing, marking, and making printouts of pdf’s in my gaming library.  At $4.99, it’s cheap and very useful, and I […]

June 2, 2011 by

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 […]
