5e monster conversion: Jungle Giant

June 16, 2017 by

2

So I hear we are going to Chult this fall? Is that right? Well then, fellow DM’s, we’re going to need a Jungle Giant. No. Come on. Not that guy. Jungle Giants first appeared in 2e’s Al-Qadim Appendix for the Monstrous Compendium, and were later renamed Forest Giants in 3e’s Monster Manual II. They were […]

Is the D&D module dead?

September 22, 2015 by

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 […]

During Gencon, I saw that my friend Mike, who runs SlyFlourish, picked up a deck of cards with what looked like an encounter and a map on them. These cards intrigued me, so I looked around and picked up a batch from Drivethru RPG. I picked up the bundle that includes the PDF of the […]

I’m working on slowly converting the first Undermountain boxed set (2nd Ed.) to 5e for my home game. I’ve already converted a few of the magical items included in the set, and figured I’d share them here. They are: Arrow of Holding Glim Gauntlets Grzeenstone Amulet Ring of Gargoyles Stone of Shielding Spellblade Scepter of […]

5e Magic Item Conversions

I’m enjoying converting older D&D material into 5e. I’ve done races and monsters, and now I’m tackling magical items. I put together a document with conversion for items from two older books filled with magic: 2e’s Tome of Magic by David Cook, and 1e’s The Magister by Ed Greenwood. I obviously didn’t convert all the items in those […]

The mul & thri-kreen PC races for 5e D&D

I’ve been working on 5e monsters and races lately. Earlier this week I posted a Shardmind and a Loxo, and now here are two more races to add to your 5e options (assuming you like them and your DM approves!) These two races come from the Dark Sun setting, the Mul and Thri-Kreen. The latter is in […]
