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 […]

NewbieDM Review: Tomb of Annihilation

I’m going to get it out of the way before I even begin the review… I love Tomb of Annihilation. I think it is the best big adventure Wizards of the Coast has put out in the last decade, and it sets a high bar for future 5e adventures and stories. It’s 5e firing on […]

I’ve been looking at how I run my games lately. I’ve been thinking about minis, paper minis, and tokens, and what I want for my game and my table. Tomb of Annihilation has a SHIT LOAD of possible random encounters. It is a hex crawl after all…a damn good one, but a hex crawl nonetheless […]

The Sandman’s a simple monster, it’s an elemental made of sand who¬†basically puts people to sleep. In 2e, their lore was expanded and made […]

Stranger Things Demogorgon for 5e

Netflix’s¬†show Stranger Things is a love letter to 80’s entertainment. It takes Spielberg, Stephen King, John Carpenter, and George Lucas and puts them in a blender, creating a fantastic 8 hours of television. One of the highlights of the show is its unabashed love of D&D, as it is a major part of the show, […]
