    D&D 5E Best 1 shot adventure (low level)

    Lost Mine of Phandelver (Beginner Box) is easy enough to break up into short sessions. Death House is a good one shot you can get for free in an earlier issue of Dragon+.

    Yep, Monks & I had a sword & board paladin caught without his shield utilize it.

    D&D 5E How many spells does a fresh level 2 paladin know?

    Paladins don't have spellbooks, they choose prepared spells from the Paladin spell list (all the spells on the list). "You prepare the list of paladin spells that are available for you to cast, choosing from the paladin spell list. When you do so, choose a number of paladin spells equal to...

    Original Damage should read Poison Damage.

    D&D Expeditions: DDEX3-2 Shackles of Blood (spoilers)

    That happens often enough without intentionally designing an encounter where the characters fail.

    D&D Expeditions: DDEX3-2 Shackles of Blood (spoilers)

    There are others that have a similar theme. Mayhem in the Earthspur Mines starts in an arena and one of the hooks is "Blood for the Boar Pit", the party is somehow captured and thrown in the arena. It happens off screen, but is also a bad idea. Why wouldn't you attack the Arena owners who...

    D&D Expeditions: DDEX3-2 Shackles of Blood (spoilers)

    I had to run it and had the same thoughts you did. It is not well written. It only took 3-3.5 hours to complete. I changed it so the 1st encounter was with a small group of Red Plumes and they rescued the Tinfellows (remember there are others that still need rescuing). Then I had Deriel...

    D&D 5E Acquisitions Inc at PAX 2015

    I enjoy Critical Role and AI because they are both creative games by creative individuals that make me laugh and I enjoy the story. I certainly don't watch either one for a perspective on the rules as written. They both run games that are heavily modified with House Rules. Rule of Fun definitely...

    Acquisitions, Inc. Returns

    On youtube, there are a couple users who put them all in one place. Blackfooot Ferret and Vital Blurs are 2 I have watched. Vital Blurs has them listed as "Seasons" and includes the early podcasts. Some of the "Seasons" are not AI though (They include some side stuff they did, like a Dark Sun...

    Acquisitions, Inc. Returns

    Yeah, our group is a lot more like Acquisitions Inc than Titansgrave. I have enjoyed Titansgrave, but I enjoy AI and Critical Roles a lot more. Can't wait for the new AI. I would also like to see the return of Aeofel.

    D&D 5E Running a game for a 6 year old

    My kids have been role playing with simplified versions of Pathfinder/D&D since they were 5 yrs old and they handled it really well. WoTC came up with "Monster Slayers" recently based on the original "Monster Slayers: The Heroes of Hesiod". I haven't tried it, but I would if they were 6 again...

    Gaming with my Children.

    We just started Organized Play with 5th edition. My son is 9 now, running a Dragonborn Sorcerer and my daughter is 11 running a Tiefling Warlock. The GMs at the events have commented at how well they grasp the rules. Gaming from an early age for the win. They were also the only two at the table...

    Soanso's Fireside Chat: Rise of the Runelords (AE)

    The party did really well here. First they cut a swath through the fortress, and then (after picking the lock to the throne room) take on Ripnugget and his guards. It was a tough fight, even for a party of six. The fortress was on alert, since they had been warned by the Goblin Druid that...

    Soanso's Fireside Chat: Rise of the Runelords (AE)

    Nope, sorry ibayboy. I was gonna give you xp just for guessing, but apparently I need to “spread it around”. The game I’m thinking of is pretty old. (Hint) It was a sequel to an old text adventure. So the encounter with the Goblin Druid (Take #2) had seven PCs! One was only a one shot addition...

    Soanso's Fireside Chat: Rise of the Runelords (AE)

    End of Session 4. That was a close call. Luckily C and Siv were able to stabilize, but Shaiira had to be saved with Hero Points. There are some new characters coming up… That’s all I’ll say about that for now. That covers everything up to Session 4. We played session 5 on the 20th of August...
