We continue our tour of the splintered minds that make up our Campaign Pitch of Cosmic Horror goodness with a most interesting build. Plasmoids, as a rule, are a strange build. Being a new race offered in the 5E Spelljammer sourcebooks, it’s not gotten a lot of traction and is near impossible to find picContinue reading “Forgotten Skills: Plasmoid Assassin Character Reference”

CAMPAIGN PITCH: SPELLJAMMER COSMIC HORROR
After dropping my article on playing multiple personalities in D&D, I realized that this whole campaign we’ve been playing for the last six months makes a great pitch. Basically, we jumped headlong into the setting of Spelljammer, adopted most of the classic races you find in the new sourcebooks and our DM, Steps, went allContinue reading “CAMPAIGN PITCH: SPELLJAMMER COSMIC HORROR”
In a Different Class: Guns Blazing!
For as long as I can remember, the discussion of including firearms in D&D has been a volatile issue at times. DMs fearing that it will imbalance the game or make it ‘less fantasy’ has kept a good many builds from seeing the light of day. And that’s fine if that’s your take, but, ifContinue reading “In a Different Class: Guns Blazing!”
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”
Becoming the Shadow: Shadowtouched as PCs
Shadows are low level Cr creatures (1/2) used mainly as tests in the early stages of a campaign. Usually easily forgotten although highly elusive and possibly dangerous is luck doesn’t persist. The fact that they can hide as a bonus action, get a +6 to stealth and can, if you are reduced to 0 andContinue reading “Becoming the Shadow: Shadowtouched as PCs”
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”
Why Play Kenku?
The Following is brought to you by BDC Looking over races to play, there is one race that gets a pass way too many times. Either that or they are completely misunderstood and destined to become annoying or a joke character. Now, cheers to you who actually make this race work and make amazing charactersContinue reading “Why Play Kenku?”
Somewhere between Shadow and Death: The Raven Queen
Today, we bring you a lore and game ideas surrounding death, the Shadowfel and the mysterious Raven Queen. But, first, let’s look at a character reference going back to Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything. Our man PANDA really liked the Rogue subclass, Phantom, and brought the concept to the table and the character creation crew wentContinue reading “Somewhere between Shadow and Death: The Raven Queen”
Character Reference: Chug, the Drunken, Inquisitive Master
What started as a well-meant life as a monk, did not go as planned…I mean, the liquor was always good. And I became quite adept with my fists. But the best part was the illusion that I, my two compatriots and the master were just a pack of Kenku drunks.
Hags: Love, Nature and Destiny
“The transformative power of both love and hate each can either bless or curse a soul. Long ago, there was a young woman who had just come into her beauty; so striking a beauty was she that she could naturally enchant any man she wanted. But, as long as she could remember, she was surroundedContinue reading “Hags: Love, Nature and Destiny”
