In a Different Class: Warlock Psionic Patrons

We all see you struggling Wizards of the Coast. Trying to find the right balance to introduce Psionic abilities as either a new class or subclass has proven problematic to say the least. While most players don’t want a whole new mechanic, Wotc has always tried to tie down psionics with power points of someContinue reading “In a Different Class: Warlock Psionic Patrons”

Sardior, Dragon God of the Gem Dragons

Being an old D&D buff, I know we get caught up with the fascination of what we already know although we love the old lore. Take dragons, for example. It’s easy to get lost in the infinite war between Tiamet and Bahamut aka the war between the evil chromatic dragons and, their counterparts, the goodContinue reading “Sardior, Dragon God of the Gem Dragons”

Shadow Dragons and other dark things from Shadowfell

I have said before that, although Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons is a good source of all things draconic for 5E, it misses some of the most interesting dragons. That would be one of my favorite types of dragons, Planar Dragons. I’ve already showcased my absolute favorite, the Chaos Dragon. So, now, I come to theContinue reading “Shadow Dragons and other dark things from Shadowfell”

When is a barbarian NOT a Barbarian: Sorcerer

By BDC Title art by Vecoggonillustration.com Welcome to our second in the series ‘When is a barbarian NOT a Barbarian?’. Now, just so you can understand and not get confused, were talking about PCs or NPCs who are born in a barbarian tribe, NOT multiclassing with the Barbarian class. Last week, we tackled one ofContinue reading “When is a barbarian NOT a Barbarian: Sorcerer”

Forgotten Dragons of Fizban’s: Chaos Dragons and other Chaos

Fizban’s Treasury of Dragons is about as good as you will get from 5E. I have a LOVE/ (HATE’s a strong word) DISLIKE relationship with 5E. ON the one side, I become an evangelist preaching the ways of 5E as the way and that 6E should never come. ON the other, I hunger for moreContinue reading “Forgotten Dragons of Fizban’s: Chaos Dragons and other Chaos”

D&D Dead and Forgotten? The Shadow of a God

The following shadowy goodness comes to you from the dark mind of BDC! This is practically part three in a series of a campaign pitch that started in my article about shadowtouched and continued in the actual campaign pitch! In the above mentioned campaign pitch, I also gave five or six options for a bigContinue reading “D&D Dead and Forgotten? The Shadow of a God”

Reskinning the Warforged: Scarecrows as PCs

The following Spooktober offering is from the dark mind of BDC There aren’t many better symbols of this season we are about to celebrate than the horrid visage of the scarecrow. Besides maybe the Jack-O-Lantern, the Scarecrow best embodies the dark and frightening time of year and carries with it the power of fear itself.Continue reading “Reskinning the Warforged: Scarecrows as PCs”

Tell by its stripes: Tiger options for your game

Getting ready to have an intelligent (hopefully) discussion on weres of all types, I decided to look into one of the types of lycanthropes I usually skip: Weretigers. And, in the process, started brewing up all sorts of options of how to use the tiger motif in your upcoming campaign. Check us out Tuesday NightsContinue reading “Tell by its stripes: Tiger options for your game”

Forgotten Gods of D&D: Tharizdun, the Chained God

Earlier this year, in the article discussing the origins of the dark fate of the Queen of Air and Darkness, we discussed the dark god of the underdark as being the mastermind behind it all. In fact, all evidence points to Tharizdun, the ‘Eater of Worlds’, as being this dark god. But who is Tharizdun?Continue reading “Forgotten Gods of D&D: Tharizdun, the Chained God”
