So I absolutely love this artwork. It was created by Beatrice Pelagatti for a project that got cancelled for a number of reasons. So I am posting it here on our blog. We’re working on versions for this Pathfinder and 13th Age. This post was made possible by our Patreon supporters. Join our Patron to support our blog and make more posts like this possible.

Book of Heroes: Heroic Fighter Archetypes DnD5e

One of the things I LOVED about third edition was all the racial options we had. There are so many that are rather imaginative and inspiring that I do not feel have been duplicated in the current edition. So I thought I would create a scratch-off-the-serial-numbers version of one of my favorites. So today I bring you grave gnomes. Grave gnomes are named not because they they are close to the dead… Read More

I want to make a magic bolas for the 3 fantasy games we support, but first I have to mundane version, since it doesn’t exist for two of them. It already exists for Pathfinder, and 13th Age has rules for weapons for each class so it will just be a magic item. So here’s the 5e version. Bolas (5e) Bolas 2 gp — 1 lb. Special, thrown (range 20/60) Bolas: When hit… Read More

All of us GMs have been there. We create an encounter that we think will be a cake walk for the players and they roll terribly. Either that or they split the party and neither group can help the other. The question then becomes, “How does the GM same the party?” because we all know the players will never, EVER run away when they really, really should. The encounter balancing system of… Read More

As I write this, I am sitting in a metal tube several miles above the surface of the Earth. No matter how many times I do this, I still find it amazing. I know all the physics involved, but that still doesn’t make it any less a wonder of the potential we can achieve when we put our brightest minds and the most daring among us together. There needs to be a… Read More

With only one day left in May, I am starting June’s blog posts early. This month is going to focus on monsters, mainly because I got some new monster art recently and I want to create the fun creepies. *evil laugh* We’re going to be doing like at the April with the skunkdrill, where we created a 5e, Pathfinder 1e, and 13th Age version of these creatures. Additionally, the votes from our… Read More

As promised on Monday, we created the 5e version of the Skunkdrill, this mad combination of a skunk and mandrill is a perfect addition to any D&D 5e game. Need to make the rogue run for the hills? This monster will make them not taking their sneaking abilities for granted. If you enjoyed this blog post and others like it, be sure to back our Patreon.

Drow are problematic. They are portrayed as dark skinned and evil except for the few that are brooding but good. I always feel that calling an entire race or subrace evil (outside of fiends) as lazy design. So when a player in my campaign said they wanted to play a drow but had some problems with them, I decided a rewrite of them was in order. I’m not just talking, “let’s make… Read More

I asked our very first Patreon supporter what kind of blog posts would they like to see. Their response was a series about the writing process. I think that that is a great idea. So in the Writing Process series of blog posts, I am going to take you through the various stages of writing some new game mechanic for what will ultimately be in a published product. Today’s will answer that… Read More
