gaming workflow and tools

It’s been about six months since I got back into D&D, running games for my son. I have learned a lot in that time, including how to be a better DM, but that’s a story for another post. I thought I’d take a moment to go back and reflect on an earlier post I made…

eberron: rising

I just received my copy of Eberron: Rising from the Last War and I’m loving it. I bought a copy of the Sword Coast Adventurers Guide recently and while I appreciate the lore, I felt the book was thin on gameplay content. Sword Coast had some interesting subraces, a few new subclasses, and a few…

ko-fi

I’ve been wondering how to go about recovering some of my costs on all this stuff I’m publishing. I love sharing this stuff, but it still costs me money to pay for hosting and domain registration and it would be great to cover some of those costs. Patreon seems to be very popular for this…

blade of the pact keeper

The steel of this sword has been blued so that it reflects little light. It appears to be a plain sword, but close inspection shows that it is not tarnished in any way, and the keen edge seems to cry out for blood. Don’t be the fool who tests its edge with your finger. It will cut…

seriously cool shades

These are some very cool shades. Full stats for this item can be found on my GMBinder page.

necklace of the eight lords

There is a legend that eight great masters from eight monasteries came together to overthrow a mighty evil. Each fought in a distinctly different style, but their total strength was far greater than the sum of their individual schools, and so they won the day. For many years after, they remained close allies, until their…

pickle dragon

The Pickle Dragon looks a bit like a combination between a domestic dog and a crocodile, but with fewer teeth. They smell vaguely of vinegar and dill. They’ll eat anything pickled, and love cucumbers above all. They are primarily herbivorous but have been known to eat pickled meats like corned beef, picked tongue, or pickled…

room of doom, version 3

This is the third of three versions of this room. The whole room is a gigantic ancient mimic. The chest is to lure hapless adventurers into the room at which point the “door”, which is its mouth, will close and the mimic will proceed with devouring anyone inside it. Mimic (Ancient) Huge monstrosity (shape changer),…

room of doom, version 2

This is the second of three versions of this room. The chest is, in fact, a mimic and will hungrily attempt to devour any adventurer that gets close enough. Mimic (Mature) Medium monstrosity (shape changer), neutral Armor Class 12 (natural Armour) Hit Points 58 (9d8 + 18) Speed 15ft. STR DEX CON INT WIS CHA…

room of doom, version 1

I’m planning to inflict this room on my players 3 times over the course of them gaining several levels. The room will look identical each time, but be subtly different. This is the first version of the room. The platform is, in fact, a pressure plate and any change in weight on the platform will…
