    D&D 5E Alternate Character Creation Idea for 5e Arrays with Perks

    After reading a number of complaints about min/max attributes breaking some classes in 5e (whether it is true or not), and talking about character generation rolls vs. point buy vs. standard array in my own group, I'm starting to work on a new way to use arrays with Perks to make less cookie...

    D&D 5E D&D as a Teaching Tool

    I just did something in my 9th grade high school English classes that I have never done in my 22 years of teaching. I actually taught 4 classes of students (over 2 days) how to play D&D and ran them through a homemade, Literary adventure. I wanted to show them how D&D encouraged and developed...

    D&D 5E Modify Your Monsters

    I have just uploaded Modify Your Monsters to the downloads area. Here's a d100 chart to help inspire people to modify or build monsters using current monster abilities, PC feats and PC class features. I like to make some of the elite monsters or leaders of groups more fearsome so sometimes...

    D&D 5E Modify Your Monsters

    Hi All, Inspired by some of the other posts, and my love of the guides in some of the modern/sci-fi games that give guidelines to modify and or build weapons/vehicles, I came up with a very quick and easy way to add variety and a little more punch to the D&D 5e monsters (especially the elite)...

    D&D 5E 30 Minutes before a game session, what prep rituals help you DM/play your best games?

    Last Saturday, I ran another session of my Princes of the Apocalypse campaign (using Fantasy Grounds II) and I made an amazing discovery. Two pints of Boatswain H.L.V. Ale about 30 minutes before the game, in addition to reviewing the adventure to think about possible modifications I want to...

    D&D 5E Should each class get its own version of expertise?

    A number of posts in other threads mention randomness in D&D, and how that might be off-putting to some, and in some situations it just plain goes against the story. For example, someone used the example of the cleric that has a 10 intelligence. For that cleric, even at mid level, his trained...

    D&D 5E Rhenny's "Harried in Hillsfar" Mini-Campaign

    Session 0 and Kickstart of the Mini-Campaign "Harried in Hillsfar" We decided to start this mini-campaign on odd days when we could not get 3 or more players for our entire Princes of the Apocalypse campaign, so I will be running this Expedition adventure arc for only 2 or 3 players (depending...

    D&D 5E Encounters and NPC/Monster Strategy Thread

    D&D 5E Rhenny's Princes of the Apocalypse Campaign Logs

    This kicks off our new campaign. This session was really a prelude to the adventure. I wanted to give the PCs a way to bond and develop their characters before we actually got to Red Larch. I had everyone speak a little about his or her character to start the session, and then I asked the...
