NewbieDM Review: Tomb of Annihilation dice

September 21, 2017 by

5

Wizards of the Coast was kind enough to send over a box of Tomb of Annihilation goodies to review. I’m still digesting the adventure, including the D&D Beyond version I purchased, so that review is forthcoming (spoiler: the adventure is really good), but I thought I’d at least give you a look at the dice.

Paper Minis!

August 31, 2017 by

4

Everyone loves their minis. Everyone loves having a unique mini that represents their character, or in the case of DMs, that represents the monsters that the PCs will ultimately face. Even back in the old days, when I was a player in 1e or 2e games, we had minis there to represent marching order and […]

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 […]

Here’s the Redcap, a monster I first encountered in the 3rd. Edition Monster Manual 3. There is already a 5e version of it in DDAL4-6 The Ghost, an organized play module, and in Kobold Press’ Tome of Beasts. This is my version. I made it a Challenge 2 creature, and stripped it of its fey […]

Here’s another monster conversion, this time the Sandman, which first appeared in 1e’s Fiend Folio, and was later taken into 2e’s Al Qadim setting in a boxed set called “Assassin Mountain”. 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

September 7, 2016 by

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, […]
