5e Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated – Comparative Review

Thursday, 21 September, 2017

I picked up the new 5e Dungeon Master’s Screen Reincarnated when I picked up Tomb of Annihilation earlier this week. I almost didn’t buy it because I hadn’t found the original 5e DM Screen to be of much use – I have been using the World’s Greatest Screen (landscape version) by Hammerdog Games and it […]

Why I don’t fudge rolls or change stats on the fly

Sunday, 17 September, 2017

There are a couple of different conversations happening in a couple of the RPG groups I frequent.

Epic in Scale and Hard to Beat!

Friday, 28 July, 2017

This is the fourth adventure module I am reading in my quest to explore desert/Egyptian themed items as I plan my next 5th edition D&D game.

The Three Sages – Prepping and Providing Information to the PCs

Tuesday, 28 July, 2015

What can the Sage tell you? At the table, seeking out information can be simple or complex. Do you let the players make a skill roll and then just give them the information? Sometimes that is the most expedient way to move the game along and, especially if you are running a one-shot adventure, is […]
