  Exciting news! The NewbieDM Minicast is joining the awesome “Don’t Split the Podcast Network”  of RPG and gaming podcasts! I’ve long wanted to return the Minicast in some way, shape, or form, and I’m glad to have found a home with the great folks at DSTPN. If you’ve never heard of the Minicast before, […]

If you’ve been following me or this blog for a while, you know I love creating things for my games. DIY has been a big part of D&D since the beginning, and I’ve always found that aspect of the hobby to be a fun one. As I was planning my Tomb of Annihilation campaign, (reviewed […]

I’ve already reviewed WOTC’s latest adventure offering, the epic and pulpy Tomb of Annihilation, but now I want to look at the DnD Beyond version. Please note, this is not a review of the DnD Beyond app in its entirety, as I haven’t really delved into it too much. WOTC describes DnD Beyond as: D&D […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
