NewbieDM Review: D&D Essentials Kit

June 23, 2019 by

5

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

March 25, 2019 by

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 […]

Looking for danger and excitement, are you? Well don’t be so eager to hunt it down it often finds you soon enough in this city. If you ever want to ever live to see your first gray hair, you’ll learn to not rashly seek out peril at every opportunity. I don’t mean you should stop […]

3d printing and Dungeons & Dragons

October 29, 2018 by

3d printing has positioned itself as an emerging technology that could upend the way we approach D&D accessories and decorate our table. It is fascinating to watch how quickly it has grown and entered gaming culture, almost out of nowhere, and has led to people creating things for our games we thought were well out […]

Things I love about Shadow of the Demon Lord (without having even played it)

August 2, 2018 by

5

I’ve owned Shadow of the Demon Lord ever since a friend on twitter was gracious enough to gift me a copy two years ago, but I’ve yet to play it. That’s mostly due to my group being a little adverse to trying new systems for fantasy, when D&D is perfectly fine for that. When we […]
