Fey Patrons of the Frozen Wild

We’ve talked a lot about different classes in the wild; giving you something more to work with than simply having a whole tribe of barbarians who are ALL Barbarians. It just doesn’t make sense. It also doesn’t make sense to have two classes in the wild. Barbarians being the warrior class and all of thoseContinue reading “Fey Patrons of the Frozen Wild”

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”

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”

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”

Character Reference Special: Barbaric Transformations

Ok, so this weekend we started our COLDBREW series on our stream. We decided to run the list of classes and, not only, look at the optimal builds, but, as is our speciality, get creative and brew some ‘out of the box’ Barbarians. Something we ttouched upon but didn’t really have time to flesh outContinue reading “Character Reference Special: Barbaric Transformations”

Well, fellow Tavern Mages, it’s spoiler season for Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. But before it all breaks loose tomorrow, we received some insight into what the faces of the Commander Sets for AFR are going to be. And, although the four were not the party that we thought was set up way back inContinue reading “New Legendary Creatures bring perfect D&D Flavor to Commander”

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”

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”
