NewbieDM Review: Encounter Decks 3 by Inkwell Ideas

September 2, 2015 by

During Gencon, I saw that my friend Mike, who runs SlyFlourish, picked up a deck of cards with what looked like an encounter and a map on them. These cards intrigued me, so I looked around and picked up a batch from Drivethru RPG. I picked up the bundle that includes the PDF of the […]

I’m still moving along with my SW/5e hack (my friend Mark from Dice Monkey and Marvel Plot Points has offered to help me out)… I’ve done some thinking about how I’d like to see it progress in certain areas, and here’s what I have: Classes: I am leaning towards a classless system that gives you decision […]

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.

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 […]

Hey! 5e is finally here and the fine folks at Gator Games thought it would be cool to celebrate by giving away a PHB to one lucky reader. We ran some great giveaways together during the 4e days, and we thought it would be great to do it again… So here’s the deal, starting today, […]
