    5E [SPOILERS] Enhancing Tomb of Annihilation

    My DM ran Acererak with better spells, and facing him after the Atropal was really tough. My paladin had three levels of exhaustion already, and had taken a bunch of damage from falling into lava. Acererak was flying around blasting us with fireballs while our sorcerer tried to damage him, to no...

    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    Dang, that must have been intense. We tried attacking full on and got roflstomped (although that was partially due to the ranger healing enemies and then firing into my paladin's back to get into the good graces of the snake people -a bit late for that since we were already attacking)

    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    I actually plan on triggering the Death Curse (ingame) weeks after the party arrives in Chult. I will try to give them plenty of hooks to do other interesting things and gather loot, hopefully giving them faint hints as to what's to come, then have the Soulmonger activate in spectacular fashion...

    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    First off, sorry for the late replies, I’ traveling atm and don’t have my pc on me to check regularly. But. We started at Sindra’s mansion, then she teleported us to Port Nyazaru. We walked around for a bit, but we basically just looked for people to bring us into the jungle and find wherever...

    Much obliged, thank you :) Anything else other than fleshing out Mezro?

    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    Yeah, I do want them to meet him, and then have him leave (and be mostly tied up in combat offscreen during encounters, using the ring to just save from hairy situations) Our problem was mostly that our cleric went rogue (no pun indtended) and sparked an inter-party battle, so we were already...

    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    We just did a couple of (near TPK) random encounters in the jungle and the red dragon's lair, which resulted in three more deaths

    5E (Spoilers) Running Tomb of Annihilation up to higher levels

    So after playing through ToA as a player (with our party suffering 25 deaths throughout the course of our campaign) I am prepping to run it myself for another group. However. I like to add modules I DM to my homebrew setting, giving new flavors and explanations for things. And I wanted to add...

    Gnomes and Paladins the RPG

    Indeed, quite disturbing and apocalyptic.

    5E Preferred DM vs PC game type.

    Alright, so this was supposed to be a poll, but apparently I'm stupid with computers and didn't notice I posted it while checking the poll thing etc. Anyway. In a recent thread I started, (this one...

    5E Players think Strahd isn't actually so bad. (Spoilers)

    So I've been running Curse of Strahd with my group lately, and the players are not very keen on going up against him. And it's not that they're scared; let me recap. -Players get lost in the mists after running away from a village attacked by a giant pack of wolves and get picked up by Vistani...

    Scaling Nine Lives Stealer

    Wassup my dudes? I've always liked the idea of magic items that scale as the characters do, and one item in particular has always seemed ideal to me for this: The Nine Lives Stealer Now, I really dislike how it plays on the DMG, because it's basically just really useful against low...

    5E (CoS) Getting TPK'd at Old Bonegrinder and more.

    Alright, so my group (lvl 3) reached Old Bonegrinder last session. I had prepared for this, and the hags ripped the group to shreds, but they stabilized the whole group and tied them up, then proceeded to engage in some (very one-sided) negotiation. One of my players (sorcerer) tried to get...

    Tweaking Modules to fit you Homebrew World

    Man, I'm back with a vengeance! In this thread, I tell you a bit more about my campaign world, and how I tweaked Curse of Strahd's (which becomes Curse of Drazhan for me) story and characters to fit in it. Alright, so, Ravenloft, the demiplane of Dread. In the official fluff, the Dark Powers...

    Modifying Old Bonegrinder to be more (and yet less) deadly.

    Alright, I'm back posting! (Though you may not have noticed or rejoiced at the absence of my too long-winded questions). Anyway, let's get to it: how do you tweak written adventures (right now I'm preparing Curse of Strahd, but you can share anything if you like -maybe not ToA, since I'm...
