Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Centaurs and Minotaurs

We’re back with May’s Unearthed Arcana taking a look at playable races for Centaurs and Minotaurs! Minotaurs previously appeared in 2015, but they’re back and revised alongside their fellow ‘taur. Even as a DM, I love seeing new player options, especially races, come out….

25 Seafaring Adventure Seeds

By popular demand, we have some great Seafaring Adventure Seeds today! We set sail across the oceans and seas into a world of nautical novelty! I had a lot of fun coming up with these, but some are more closely aligned to adventure or encounter ideas…

A Handful of Magic Items 7

We’ve been cooking up some more magic items for you with some of the feedback in mind from our last few sets. Today we have a blade that likes to slay alike foes, a shield that can become a tactical wall, and a staff…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Order Domain

We’re officially a quarter of the way through the year, and what better way to celebrate that completely arbitrary achievement than with a new cleric domain? The Order Domain puts the lawful in lawful good/neutral/evil. On the face this looks like an exciting new domain that…

25 Wizard Tower Adventure Seeds

We’re back with more Adventure Seeds, and today we take a trip to the wizard’s tower outside of town! I wanted to challenge myself yet again by using a very narrow geographic area that is also highly specialized. Needless to say, a challenge it was!…

Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes Preview

While it seems we have been left without an Unearthed Arcana for the month of March, we instead got a nice little preview from Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes! Much like Volo’s Guide to Monsters before it, Mordenkainen’s Tome of Foes promises expanded lore and…

25 Mountain Pass Adventure Seeds

This installment of Adventure Seeds brings us through a winding mountain pass that sees a lot of traffic among merchants and travelers. I wanted another “on the road” set of seeds that could be placed anywhere and shift between pockets of civilized company and…

A Handful of Magic Items 6

The last time we took a look at some magic items was last year, but we’ve had a couple months to brew up some new ones for you. Today we present a dagger fitting of a great assassin, a cloak for someone expecting to…

25 Jungle Ruins Adventure Seeds

First adventure seeds of the year bring us to the jungle, specifically a jungle with plenty of humid, swampy areas and some extensive ruins of a long-lost civilization. I wanted something that was both wild and had a hint of civilization, and thought this…

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Three Subclasses

It’s a new year with a new slew of Unearthed Arcana to take a look at! And what better way to kick off 2018 than with three new subclasses, one each for Druid, Fighter, and Wizard? On the nature front, we have the death-centric…

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…

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,…
