I know this question is maybe a little sensationalist, but I think it’s fair. Is the module dead?  First, what do I mean by module? I see modules as cheap, short, low prep adventures that a DM can run in a few sessions and be done with it. The kind of adventures we’d get in […]

I’m enjoying converting older D&D material into 5e. I’ve done races and monsters, and now I’m tackling magical items.
