A Handful of Magic Items 5

Before we enter the new year, we wanted to present you with yet another handful of magic items! This brings the total number up to fifteen, and I’m pretty pleased with this bunch. The items presented here are a mixed bag; a ring of… Continue Reading “A Handful of Magic Items 5”

25 Urban City Adventure Seeds

Here we are with yet another Adventure Seeds, likely the last of the year! We head back to the city, but this time rather than focus on a city specific to a race or location, I picked events that could happen in a large,… Continue Reading “25 Urban City Adventure Seeds”

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Elf Subraces

Another month, another batch of playtest rules from our good friends at Wizards of the Coast. This month, following up on September’s positive feedback on the eladrin subrace, we get four more elf subraces, each distinct from each other and those already existing. This includes… Continue Reading “Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Elf Subraces”

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Fiendish Options

Now that Unearthed Arcana is back on a monthly release schedule, we have more time to look into and play with the material before the next set is thrown at us. That said, May’s article is a handful of revisions of previous subclasses released through Unearthed Arcana, so we wanted to dive in right away. […]

A Handful of Magic Items 4

It’s time for another handful of magic items! Previously I showcased some magic items I had made for my group while they were all pretty low level. Well, they’ve gained a few levels and I feel more comfortable with items that have a little… Continue Reading “A Handful of Magic Items 4”

Ready Review & Compare: Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated

Since the release (and disappointment) of the first DM Screen for 5e, fans have been clamoring for… Continue Reading “Ready Review & Compare: Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated”

25 Frozen Wastes Adventure Seeds

We’re back with another Adventure Seeds list! This time we dare the frozen wastes and all the perils that present themselves in such an environment. I don’t DM cold environments too often, so this one was a fun challenge for me, forcing me to… Continue Reading “25 Frozen Wastes Adventure Seeds”

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Eladrin and Gith

Now that Unearthed Arcana is back on a monthly release schedule, we have more time to look into and play with the material before the next set is thrown at us. That said, May’s article is a handful of revisions of previous subclasses released through Unearthed Arcana, so we wanted to dive in right away. […]

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Three-Pillar Experience

At first I wasn’t sure what to think about August’s Unearthed Arcana as it came in as a brief (a little less than 2 pages) article on the heels of a very controversial release in July. It takes on the challenge of awarding experience in… Continue Reading “Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Three-Pillar Experience”

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Greyhawk Initiative

It was very quickly established that many people are unhappy with this month’s Unearthed Arcana article which introduces Greyhawk Initiative as a possible alternative to normal initiative for you to use in your game. And I agree with those people; if you’re just here… Continue Reading “Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Greyhawk Initiative”
