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”
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”
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”
Grab the Dice Bag! It’s Time to Play Magic!
There was a time that the closest Magic the Gathering got to dice were those non-D20 rolldowns or in some UN-Set. But that has all changed! Dice rolling has come to standard with the first D&D crossover to the actual Magic card game; Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. We’ve already seen cards in all colorsContinue reading “Grab the Dice Bag! It’s Time to Play Magic!”
Wizards brings Class to MTG!
Last week, during the spoilers and previews, we were introduced to a new type of card coming in Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set for MTG. While theorizing about the different things we may see coming from Magic the Gatherings’ first venture into a Dungeons and Dragons world, I had many thoughts. The dungeon cardsContinue reading “Wizards brings Class to MTG!”
The Party Mechanic, Forgotten Realms and Tokens!
You know what they say when you assume something? Yeah, that one. Well, last Renewal hit big with the Tavern Mages here. It was especially exciting to see MTG go to the Forgotten Realms. Strangely enough, when Zendikar Rising debuted around the same time as these groundbreaking announcements, one of the new mechanics caught ourContinue reading “The Party Mechanic, Forgotten Realms and Tokens!”
Will Orc Tribal Finally Get Its Due in Forgotten Realms?
Now first of all, this is a speculation article not a spoiler. I have no new info about the upcoming MTG set, Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately. What we have plenty of here in the Magic Tavern is opinions and speculation. Lots of it. And we’ve had a discussion recently about some possibilities ofContinue reading “Will Orc Tribal Finally Get Its Due in Forgotten Realms?”
Location! Location! Location: Lands we want in MTG’s Forgotten Realms
Adventures in the FORGOTTEN REALMS is just around the corner and we could not be more stoked for a MTG set. Being old school D&D players and, especially, cutting our roleplaying teeth in Faerun aka The Forgotten Realms, we are the prime target for this type of product. One of the things that sets thisContinue reading “Location! Location! Location: Lands we want in MTG’s Forgotten Realms”
The Summer or Drizzt is upon us: What do we have in store?
Welcome to the summer of Drizzt. With the release of the animated short, Sleep Sound, written by the man who wrote both the old and new adventures of Drizzt, R. A. Salvatore, we have entered a stretch of nonstop capitolization on the D&D Drow superstar. And who can blame Wotc? Drizzt Do’Urden is the mostContinue reading “The Summer or Drizzt is upon us: What do we have in store?”
