    D&D General Dungeon Magazine's Top 30 Adventures: Do they hold up?

    The most well-regarded 4E adventures to my knowledge are Reavers of Harkenwold (an Asmodeus-worshiping mercenary company called the Iron Circle attacks a barony), Madness at Gardmore Abbey (a paladin's stronghold was thrown into chaos by the Deck of Many Things, which has left lingering effects...

    D&D General Dungeon Magazine's Top 30 Adventures: Do they hold up?

    IIRC the final print issue of Dungeon had some kind of list like that.

    D&D General Dungeon Magazine's Top 30 Adventures: Do they hold up?

    I've never played the original Temple of Elemental Evil, but earlier today I listened to a podcast that previously had praised Queen of the Demonweb Pits and had pretty much nothing nice to say about Temple of Elemental Evil, going so far as to question why people even remember it.

    D&D 5E D&D Beyond Will Delist Two Books On May 17th

    Glad I got the physical copies of Volo's and Mordenkainen's, as well as the monster cards WotC put out. There aren't many changes to the monsters I've seen that I like, and even though I'm fine with non-villainous takes on various creatures I'm glad I have a comprehensive resource for the bad...

    D&D 5E A look at 30 Spelljammer Minis

    Chwingas are tiny, fey-like elementals (apparently there was a bit of debate during development as to what what creature type they should be) with variants based on their environment whose main mechanical benefit is that they can grant a charm (like the ones from the DMG) once per day. They...

    D&D 5E A look at 30 Spelljammer Minis

    A bit surprised just how many Dark Sun creatures are apparently in new Spelljammer. I wonder what this means for Dark Sun itself.

    D&D 5E Are you permanently using any UA material in your games?

    I forgot about the skill feats, but I'll probably allow those in my next campaign.

    D&D 5E Legends of the Multiverse, tonight! See Spelljammer in action.

    I'm guessing the lack of new subclasses among the party means there won't be any in the upcoming release. Which is fine, but I was curious.

    D&D 5E Legends of the Multiverse, tonight! See Spelljammer in action.

    That was shorter than I expected, but still fun. The ship's cook being described as "witch-shaped" got a laugh out of me.

    D&D 5E Legends of the Multiverse, tonight! See Spelljammer in action.

    I'm gonna miss this Silas guy. He sounded kind of like an irate Jason Statham.

    D&D 5E Legends of the Multiverse, tonight! See Spelljammer in action.

    I'll at least give it a look to see if we get any more sneak peaks at Spelljammer (such as the new races, new subclasses, Spelljamming action, etc).

    D&D General The argentvorax and other variant monsters; what are your favorites?

    4E ended up having a surprising number of fomorian variants. Off the top of my head, there was a fomorian that commanded enslaved ghosts, a fomorian portal lord that had developed teleportation magic from studying the erratic portals of a fomorian king's fortress, and a skirmisher fomorian that...

    D&D 5E Why Play Spelljammer Over a Regular Pirate Campaign?

    I'll try to give answers that haven't already been given before: 1) Since 5E Spelljammer will use the Astral Sea there will now be chances for sailors to run into githyanki riding red dragons, emissaries from the Outer Planes (angels, morons, demons, devils, morons, etc), the crews of other...

    D&D 5E Which characters are the DPR (damage per round) leaders at your table(s)?

    So far in DMing 5E I've seen the most damage from an Oath of Vengeance Paladin (Vow of Enmity increases crit chance thanks to advantage). After that it's been a Rogue. Personally, when I DM I try to pick monsters according to the party's composition. Monks are highly mobile and can attack...

    D&D General Spelljammer's Astral Dreadnought & Adult Solar Dragon

    For those interested I've just learned that WizKids is releasing an Aspect of Tiamat miniature sometime in the next few months for a little over $100. It's not as big as the first one, obviously, but it's still 6 inches tall, which seems more than sufficient for representing Tiamat.
