MINISTER OF FEAR: 5E FEAR DOMAIN

In developing a PC for a run at Tomb of Annihilation on October 30th to early Halloween, I came upon the need to develop a FEAR DOMAIN. I began with playing the SCARECROW AS A PC using the Warforged racial traits with little or no altering. Then I began to study upon possible GODS OFContinue reading “MINISTER OF FEAR: 5E FEAR DOMAIN”

Warlock Patron: The Archfey of Happy Thoughts

In going over the upcoming Feywild adventure book, The Wild in the Witchlight, we found that they were giving it the DOMAIN treatment much like Ravenloft has sported for over two decades. Only, instead of Domains of Dread, Chris Perkins and his whimsical pixies over at Wizards of the Coast are treating us to DomainsContinue reading “Warlock Patron: The Archfey of Happy Thoughts”

BARDS OF STRIXHAVEN: SILVERQUILL

The following suggestions and thoughts are brought to you by BDC and The Magic Tavern! If there is one constant when it comes to bards, it’s that they like to talk. Most think it’s because they love the sound of their voice. And, while they do, they use words because they have found power inContinue reading “BARDS OF STRIXHAVEN: SILVERQUILL”

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.

Warlock Patron: Hags and Covens

After last weeks venture into storytelling and game suggestion (check out our article-Hags: Love, Nature and Destiny), we discussed the Mother of all Hags (literally), Cegilune, and mentioned that she would be a great patron for a warlock. As a part of developing The Magic Tavern’s next book, CONSTRUCTIVE CONSTRUCTS: SCARECROWS, I’ve done some extensiveContinue reading “Warlock Patron: Hags and Covens”

The Ghoul King’s Favorite: Warlock Patron

Through either a chance encounter in the night or a curse handed down your family for generations, you have been forever touched by the curse of the ghoul.  Without intervention, you will descend into no more than a ravenous, flesh devouring beast.  But you have a plan.  You have reached out to the origin ofContinue reading “The Ghoul King’s Favorite: Warlock Patron”

MONASTIC TRADITION: WAY OF THE FETID BLADE

BY BDC Now, if you’ve been looking around our site, you know we’ve been deep diving weres of all types and, last week, we focused on the illusive wererat. What I found was that they had the most detailed lore in the past editions than any of the other types. Not only am I readyContinue reading “MONASTIC TRADITION: WAY OF THE FETID BLADE”

In a different class: Monks are more Than just Kung Fu?

BDC is responsible for the Insanity that follows. I have a limited in-game experience with monks.  I’m not sure if any other DMs have hada few of their players go the monk route or if it’s just me.  But the one example I had was a bad one.  He was an optimizer, which, in andContinue reading “In a different class: Monks are more Than just Kung Fu?”
