annoying beetle

This clockwork beetle starts curled up into a little ball the size of a walnut. It can be thrown as a ranged attack and when it hits a target, will spring to life, flying into the face of it’s target while making a loud buzzing noise, distracting the target. The printable version of this is…

deck of wonders

I’ve been playing around with an idea for a kind of mini card game within D&D. I want to use normal playing cards with poker hands to generate magical effects; the better the hand, the better the effect. I played around with various ways of generating a score from a poker hand that could be…

rovers’ end

Rovers’ End is a small village on the three-way border of Dwarven controlled mountains to the west, human domain to the east, and largely uncontested wilderness to the north. This was a once prosperous village but has fallen on hard times. I originally used the watabou city generator to make this map, but it’s undergone…

critical fail

I love a good random table, but my problem with some charts is the distribution. A simple d100 for a chart is a linear distribution, but if you roll multiple dice, like the 3d6 for character generation, you get more of a bell curve with most rolls falling in the middle, around 10 or 11….

wizards tower

This old watchtower is leftover from the Golden Empire. It was once a watchtower on the border, but in the many years since the collapse of the empire, it was abandoned to the wilderness. In spite of its age, this structure is in remarkably good shape and still habitable and is currently the abode of…

Rise up in hordes and seize that which is rightfully yours. Raid. Kill. Conquer. The sect of Gruumsh followers at the temple called…

gm binder

I’ve really been enjoying using GM Binder to write up and keep track of a lot of my game content. Much of it is rough notes for my own benefit to keep track of in game events and things and not worth sharing with anyone, but I’ve also made a few homebrew items I’m happy…

faithful chest

This one is inspired by The Luggage from Diskworld and is part Mimic and part Bag of Holding. It’s a small chest, 12 inches long by 7 inches wide and 5 inches high (not including the lid). When open, the inside is an extra dimensional space which can hold a lot more than the exterior…

temple of the snake cultists

In an overgrown swamp lies an abandoned temple some snake cultists had been using. Why they left is anyone’s guess. Perhaps they fell on hard times. Perhaps they lost the fight with mother nature. What is for sure is that nobody lives here anymore and most of the temple buildings are steadily being reclaimed by…
