Lets try this again, I want to start podcasting about D&D again, and the 4e Minicast was a good format for me, so I’m going to try to bring it back. So… if you have any 5e D&D DMing questions, need advice, or tips, then call the minicast and I will have a guest on […](image)

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

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!Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 1.07.31 AMnewbiedm

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

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 […](image)

You know I love me some Star Wars gaming, right? I made these cockpits for use in roll20, as a way to make the digital tabletop a bit more immersive, and I thought I’d share them here. They live on a google folder, so I’ll be adding to it as I make more. Let me […](image)
