Thoughts on running the beginning of Descent into Avernus

October 11, 2019 by

I’m a few sessions into Wizards of the Coast’s latest D&D hardcover, Baldur’s Gate: Descent into Avernus for my home group, and I thought I’d put out some thoughts about my experiences running the beginning of the adventure. For those of you into this sort of thing, here’s my party’s makeup: Human Fighter Kobold Ranger […]

Descent into Avernus lore: The Hellriders

September 22, 2019 by

WOTC’s latest release for 5th edition D&D, Descent into Avernus, spins a tale that spans from the fabled city of Baldur’s Gate in Faerun, to Avernus, the first level of hell. In it, we learn the story of Zariel, ruler of Avernus, a fallen angel who sought to destroy the very thing she became, an […]

The folks at roll20 were kind enough to provide a review copy of Descent into Avernus, so I streamed my look at it. If you’d like to support the work I do on my blog, podcasting, or twitter, perhaps you’d consider supporting me on Patreon. I’m only asking for $1, and I’m doing it for […]

I was lucky enough to snag a copy of the new D&D Essentials Kit at Target a few days before release date, and I unboxed and reviewed it on twitter. If you’re wondering how this compares with the other 5e box, the D&D Starter Set, my opinion would be that this is definitely the better […]

NewbieDM Review: Ghosts of Saltmarsh

June 1, 2019 by

1

Let me just say it… Ghosts of Saltmarsh is the book Tales of Yawning Portal should have been. It’s a book filled with adventures that can be played independently of each other, or as a cohesive campaign that spans levels 1-12. It’s also a mini setting, a new rulebook, and a collection of adventuring sites […]

So I launched a Patreon

Launching a Patreon has been on my mind for a long time for a variety of reasons, and surprisingly enough, making money wasn’t really the first one. Sure, it’s a nice feeling to get paid for your work, and have people value what you do enough to reward you for it, but my motivations weren’t […]
