Classics Unboxed: Hollow World

December 1, 2011 by


I wanted to continue my  series on classic boxed sets, but I had run out of sets.  Luckily, readers chimed in and offered to contribute.  So today we are going to look at Hollow World, kindly presented by reader (and now contributor!)

Classics Unboxed: Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (2nd ed. AD&D)

September 2, 2011 by


Continuing my series on classic boxed sets, we’ve arrived at my favorite (in my collection), the Forgotten Realms box for 2nd Ed. AD&D.  Now, it’s important to keep in mind that this is not the old grey box released in 1987 for 1st Ed. AD&D, but rather an updated version for the 2nd edition of the game.  If […]

Classics Unboxed: Planescape Campaign Setting

May 3, 2011 by

April 18, 2016 by


  Curse of Strahd, 5e’s entry into the world of Ravenloft, finally dropped unto our game tables. I’ll be reviewing it soon, along with the Tarokka deck for it, but I thought I’d share some things I made or found for your Ravenloft game. First, the Powers Check for Ravenloft, converted over from 2e’s Ravenloft: Realm […]

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 […]
