    D&D 5E New Crossover: League of Legends

    Several people on Reddit have made a PDF of the content. Here’s one: Legends of Runeterra - Dark Tides of Bilgewater_PDFs

    D&D 5E Jasper reviews Van Ritchen

    The recommendation honestly doesn't make sense to me. Aside from what Paul said that it's meant to evoke the character Blade, why would the fact that a dhampir's bite and speed mean that vampires have to be "upgraded" to match? D&D makes hybrids better at <insert feature> than a lot of the...

    D&D 5E Van Richten Domains to Scale

    True true. It could even be a case where you "think" to be somewhere and you just teleport to that spot (at least on the surface). Also this image right here just gives me Outland vibes from WoW :D

    D&D 5E Van Richten Domains to Scale

    It'd be awesome to have some of those ruins on the surface be inhabited. Maybe the inhabitants eking out a living came from a world that was technologically advanced (aka antimatter rifles) but when they got sucked into the Domains of Dread their civilization collapsed. Sprinkle in some defunct...

    D&D 5E Van Richten Domains to Scale

    It'd be an awesome way to incorporate some of the material from Arcana of the Ancients. Toss in some of the monsters from Beasts of Flesh and Steel to boot. Going along with that idea of rescuing someone, there was an old 4e Dragon mag adventure where technologically advanced mind flayers were...

    D&D 5E Van Richten Domains to Scale

    The older maps of Bluetspur weren't super detailed. The original was just a mountainous area a little bigger than Barovia. The one in Domains of Dread was actually even less detailed, although it expanded the size of the domain so that it was 400 miles across (larger than the whole of the old...

    D&D 5E Van Richten Domains to Scale

    Sadly no, but it's understandable given their description of the domain. It's described as being continent-sized, which is quite the upgrade from the older version of the domain where it was barely bigger than Barovia!

    D&D 5E How does Van Richten's change your Ravenloft?

    I'm DMing a Ravenloft campaign with my group and we're currently 11 sessions into it. Started out in Lamordia and the past seven sessions the party has been in a homebrew domain where the Headless Horseman runs rampant. Our campaign is definitely sticking to the Core geography and ignoring the...

    D&D 5E Van Richten Domains to Scale

    Just out of curiosity, I wanted to see how big the mapped and scaled domains in Van Richten's were compared to one another. The tiny domain in the upper left corner is Barovia!

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana: Folk of the Feywild!

    Yeah, they definitely vary the heads of the aven. In Amonkhet you had a lot of ibis-headed aven, so basically bird people like you said, with the variations likely for thematic and artistic reasons. For sure with faeries vs. pixies in the Escalla storyline. Like others have already pointed out...

    D&D 5E New Unearthed Arcana: Folk of the Feywild!

    MTG doesn't have owlfolk, but they do have owl-headed aven. These same aven have popped up in a couple of the Plane Shift PDFs. Not sure about rabbitfolk lore-wise in either MTG or D&D, so I'll leave that to those more familiar. About 20 years ago, Paul Kidd wrote a trilogy of novels set in...

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    Ooh. I haven't watched the vid, so that is radical reimagining.

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    "More than 30 new and familiar Domains of Dread." This is interesting for a number of reasons. If they use the old lore, and the new setting book is in the same timeframe as Curse of Strahd, that means the geography of the Core would be radically different from the current timeframe of the 3e...

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    The fact that it's a jungle setting isn't radical reimagining. Older editions of Ravenloft had at least one "jungle" setting: Sri Raji. Sri Raji was Indian-inspired, which judging from Kalakeri, might be something similar.

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    Yes, I know. NotQuiteANoble was saying a guide to Ravenloft shouldn't include other demiplanes of Dread, which I was disagreeing with by pointing out the fact that older lore specifically supported other demiplanes of Dread.

    D&D 5E [Updated with cover!] The D&D Book Is.... Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft!

    Van Richten travelling only to Barovia is true only so far as 5e lore. In prior editions he travelled to multiple domains in Ravenloft. Pre-5e lore made it very common for people to travel to other demiplanes of dread (i.e. other domains in Ravenloft). If they're drawing on that older lore then...

    D&D 5E Stats for Different Kind of Trogs

    I use this site for quick CR estimates. I plugged in all the variables and it looks like the meatseeker should be Challenge 3. As an aside, it's customary to plug in the average damage for attacks, reach for melee, and number of targets, so for the meatseeker: Bite. Melee Weapon Attack: +5 to...
