Is the D&D module dead?

September 22, 2015 by

14

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 […]

September 2, 2015 by

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 still moving along with my SW/5e hack (my friend Mark from Dice Monkey and Marvel Plot Points has offered to help me out)… I’ve done some thinking about how I’d like to see it progress in certain areas, and here’s what I have: Classes: I am leaning towards a classless system that gives you decision […]

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 […]

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

April 28, 2015 by

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 […]

Experiments in building a 5e D&D race: The Shardmind.

Here’s my 5e version of the Shardmind, a race introduced in the 4e PHB3. The Shardmind origin is described as the shattered pieces of a gate at the edge of the far realm. Or something to that effect. Honestly, I don’t know much about the mythology of 4e. So make the Shardmind’s  origin what you […]
