Clerics of Amn: Keepers of the Peace

Amn is a place that respects both the Arcane and the Divine; especially the Divine. Where unknown and outsiders who practice the magical arts are viewed with suspicion and MUST be registered and controlled, Clerics and Paladins are welcome and, even, celebrated. Read more about the details of the setting of Amn HERE. In orderContinue reading “Clerics of Amn: Keepers of the Peace”

Playing a Raggamoffyn as a PC

The following Spooktober offering is from the dark mind of BDC Returning to the theme of ‘reskinning the Warforged’, I want to enter this spooky season looking into one of the most bizzare offerings from the article I wrote on the subject: The Raggamoffyn. Not made of wood, stone or metal like the Scarecrow, theContinue reading “Playing a Raggamoffyn as a PC”

DM HELPS: The Cowled Wizards of AMN

So you want to run a campaign in Amn of the Forgotten Realms? What’s the most important thing you need to know as a DM or even as a PC who’s from there? Well, if you ask me, it would be their feelings on the practice of the arcane arts. In a word, it’s outlawed.Continue reading “DM HELPS: The Cowled Wizards of AMN”

Forgotten gods of the Forgotten Realms: HOAR

Let me take you back about twenty years or so. I’ve just introduced my oldest to The Forgotten Realms and are actually attempting to convert his D6 Starwars character (who has been toying with Sith things) into the realm of Faerun. It was quite an adjustment, but we all soon fell in love with theContinue reading “Forgotten gods of the Forgotten Realms: HOAR”

Making a Dao Genie Paton

The following madness comes from the mind of BDC So, you were reading over Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything and came upon one of the two new warlock patrons listed there and you thought having a genie as a patron sounds cool. And it does. You go a step further and choose the Dao (pronounce Dow),Continue reading “Making a Dao Genie Paton”

Playing in y0ur Element: Faerzress Infused Genasi

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”

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.
