Dungeon Masters Helping Each Other

About a week ago I got into a conversation with a couple of people on Twitter about being a Dungeon Master and how it's essentially a very solitary role. It all started because I felt a hankering to create a new campaign setting, but with a twist. I wanted to create it with other DMs.… Continue reading Dungeon Masters Helping Each Other

Review Corner: Episode 5 – Friends and Foes I & II

Full Disclosure: I was supplied these supplements by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. Let me start with saying I really enjoy Cawood Publishing's supplements.

Review Corner: Episode 4 – Henchmen and Hirelings

Full Disclosure: I was provided this material by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not paid for this review.

Review Corner: Episode 2 – Art & Arcana

Let me start with this is a beautiful book. And it's big. And heavy. It's the kind of book you'd use to bludgeon an orc if you were trapped in a wizard's library (and you had the improvised weapons feat). But then you'd feel really bad for ruining such a gorgeous tome. Lovingly curated by… Continue reading Review Corner: Episode 2 – Art & Arcana
