NewbieDM Review: Tales from the Yawning Portal

April 25, 2017 by

2

One of the biggest love/hate relationships I have with 5e D&D is their release schedule for adventures. One one hand, I love the fact that 5e is a healthy, vibrant game for WOTC due in large part to their measured releases, but by the same token, I hate the fact that I don’t have a […]

Monster Conversion: Redcap

September 17, 2016 by

0

Here’s the Redcap, a monster I first encountered in the 3rd. Edition Monster Manual 3. There is already a 5e version of it in DDAL4-6 The Ghost, an organized play module, and in Kobold Press’ Tome of Beasts. This is my version. I made it a Challenge 2 creature, and stripped it of its fey […]

Here’s another attempt at converting a monster from 2e to 5e… the Woodwose, known in 2e as a Nightshade… It’s a CR1 creature from the forests of the Feywild, who will turn you into one of them if it kills you with his poisoned blade. Enjoy. Grab it here.    If you would like to support […]

Stranger Things Demogorgon for 5e

September 7, 2016 by

Netflix’s show Stranger Things is a love letter to 80’s entertainment. It takes Spielberg, Stephen King, John Carpenter, and George Lucas and puts them in a blender, creating a fantastic 8 hours of television. One of the highlights of the show is its unabashed love of D&D, as it is a major part of the show, […]

  Today I launched “Three Dollar Monsters: Creatures of the Shadowfell”, my first DM’s Guild product. What is it? Well, it’s basically a handful of D&D monsters converted to 5th Edition, each with a little bit of fluff , some WOTC art, and a stat block designed by me. And surprise! If you couldn’t tell […]

Couple of things for your Curse of Strahd game…

  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 […]

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 […]
