May 12, 2015 by

I’m enjoying converting older D&D material into 5e. I’ve done races and monsters, and now I’m tackling magical items. I put together a document with conversion for items from two older books filled with magic: 2e’s Tome of Magic by David Cook, and 1e’s The Magister by Ed Greenwood. I obviously didn’t convert all the items in those […]

I’ve been converting old monsters from AD&D that haven’t seen the light of day as (official) 5e critters.

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, […]

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 […]
