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 bit more power or potential. The first two items below are ones that I’ve given to my players, while the third is an item I’m playing around with in my head. It may make it to the table or it may not, but it interests me nonetheless!


Azurite Amulet (requires attunement)

When worn and attuned, the wearer has resistance to cold damage. Additionally, once per day the wearer may either give themselves advantage on a spell attack or give a target disadvantage on a saving throw to a spell they cast this turn. Read More

Ixalan Prerelease 3-0-1 Tournament Report

As many of you know, today is the release date for the new Magic expansion and the start of a new block: Ixalan!  Last week, I wrote about why Ixalan is the perfect time for former Magic players to return.  It turns out that I was right!  I managed to go undefeated at last weekend’s prerelease and had a ton of fun doing it.

Ready Review & Compare: Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated

We’re hot off the heels of one of the most anticipated releases from Wizards of the Coast. No, not Tomb of Annihilation, the Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated! Since the release (and disappointment) of the first DM Screen for 5e, fans have been clamoring for an upgrade with more relevant information to use.

Of course, many DMs make their own screen or buy a customizable one, filling them with homemade or downloaded charts and rules references. But for those who like the official screens or just like the layout (4 landscape panels is amazing), this “reincarnated” DM screen may be just what you’re looking for. Read More

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 think harder than usual.

Unlike my previous few, I don’t have a ton of assumptions about the frozen wastes overall, other than it is mostly desolate and covered in snow. The existence of villages, if it’s on the water or inland, and so on are on a per seed basis and can be easily changed to fit your needs. Read More

X-Wing: “Launching,” “Reveal” Bombs, a Preview of the Resistance Bomber Wave XIII (13), and Speculation on the Guns for Hire Release Date and FAQ

Last week, we previewed the TIE Silencer.  Now it’s time to “Finish What [We] Start[ed]” and preview the B/SF-17 Resistance Bomber!

We’ve known about the Resistance Bomber since the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Official Trailer back in April.  Aesthetically, this ship is nowhere near as cool-looking as the TIE Silencer.  It kind of looks like a B-Wing that has fallen on its back and can’t get up.
