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 […]

5e Monster: Living Wall

April 21, 2015 by


The Living Wall… one of those… weird monsters that D&D is sometimes famous for, this one appeared in the game through the Ravenloft campaign setting for 2nd ed. It’s a section of wall made up of the corpses of creatures (read adventurers) it has absorbed and taken up as part of its structure. Above all […]

Elder Brain for 5e

April 20, 2015 by


Here’s my version of an Elder Brain… a mind flayer city’s god-like center of attention. I made it a Challenge 22 legendary creature, with lair and regional effects. It spawns a brain golem, a challenge 5 creature with mind blasting powers as well as slam attacks. This can make for a dangerously nasty encounter. Let […]

The 5e Overland Travel Montage

March 9, 2015 by


One of the things I’ve had to deal with in the 5e game that takes place in the 2nd Ed. era of the Forgotten Realms is overland travel. That map is huge! And there are quite a few empty spots along the way (one of the reasons why I’m switching to the 3e map actually, […]

November 8, 2014 by


I’ve been swamped lately with work and a lot of other stuff which has cut into my free time, but progress on the return of the ENnie nominated Minicast is moving along.  I was looking for (and found) a way to host it on the cheap, and through a combo, I’m doing just […]

Converting the 2e Realms to 5e

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, […]

Setting my campaign in the 2e Forgotten Realms

September 14, 2014 by


So I’m taking my 5e home game back in time a bit. After playing a session of Hoard of the Dragon Queen, I felt a bit dissatisfied with the adventure (mostly due to the way it played with my group), so I’m going to do a bit of a do over. I’m going to usse 5e’s […]
