We’re here with the 4th entry into our Adventure Seeds series (check out the new Adventure Seeds link in the header to find our previous articles), and today’s theme, by popular demand, is Port City Adventure Seeds! As I tend to run my games inland, this one was a bit of a welcome challenge for me.

Per usual, I have some assumptions about the port city in question, but you should be able to adapt any of these to fit a port city of different shape, size, or other quality. Here are the assumptions: Read More

Warhammer 40k 8th Edition: Initial Thoughts

IMG_20170617_115326

I decided a few weeks ago to take the plunge and preorder the new Warhammer 40k 8th Edition Box Set. It was a bit of a strange thing to do on my part, because 1) it was driven by FOMO, which is something I almost never succumb to, and 2) it’s been over a decade since I last played a wargame, that being Warhammer Fantasy from before the new Age of Sigmar variant (High Elves/Ogre Kingdoms for life).

25 Desert Travel Adventure Seeds

maxresdefault

We have even more adventure seeds for you today to get your creative juices flowing! Rather than focus on an urban environment or specific race, this time we look at what you may experience in the desert or the towns and villages that sparsely populate it.

Unlike my previous entries in this series, I’m not assuming too much other than that these take place in a desert, and that there are some parts of it that people avoid for one reason or another. Other than that it’s standard fare, with any specifics mentioned in the seeds themselves. Without further ado, here they are! Read More

Persuasion Check: Unearthed Arcana – Revised Class Options

UA Art

Now that June is upon us, a new Unearthed Arcana article is out for us to look at! If you haven’t had a peak, open it up now in another tab and follow along!

Much like May’s article, June brings us a bunch of subclasses that have been revised based on user feedback alongside new Eldritch Invocations for the Warlock. Rather than go in depth on the mechanics of each subclass and the invocations, I’ll highlight aspects I like and dislike and give my general consensus on the option as a whole.  So how does this month’s offerings hold up? Keep reading to find out! Read More

25 Wood Elf City Adventure Seeds

We’re back again today with 25 more adventure seeds for your D&D game, this time taking a look at what goes on in the cities of those aloof Wood Elves. Much like my Dwarven City adventure seeds, I make a few assumptions about the city, such as:

  • It is ruled by a king and/or queen,
  • The city is integrated into a large forest,
  • Buildings exist both on the ground and in the trees, and
  • There is a sizable clearing nearby that the city has access to and uses for various purposes.

As last time, it should be easy to adapt most of the seeds if one of the above assumptions isn’t true in your game world. Read More

Creating Your Own Homebrew Pantheon – Part 2

(This article is currently due for an update to layout and content- check back soon for updated versions of Parts 1 and 2 and a new Part 3!)

This is the second installment in a five part series where I take you through my process of creating your own pantheon, from the beginning steps here in part one, to a deeper dive about your deities in part three, and finally a finished example of my Syvega Pantheon in part five.

Part One | Part Two | Part Three | Part Four | Part Five


In part 1 of this series we laid out the foundation for making a simple pantheon based around different cleric domains that may be present in your game. Following that, you could have a fully functional group of gods with different backgrounds, philosophies, and followers. Today we continue working on it, introducing minor deities as a way to flesh it out and add more celestial bodies to the mix. Read More
