10 More Fan Resources for your D&D 5E Game!

Another roundup of fan-created D&D 5th Edition resources, where I scour the web so you don't have to! This is what I've managed to find in the last week or so. This time I have some hex grids, oriental character builds, a gun mage, a fighter-mage, and a new magical item.

Whoops. This was supposed to go in Houserules. It's linked to a new article, so I can't move it now.

I just want to say... How I wonder how things would have been if the Internet was around when D&D first came out... so many great ideas... and resources... shared.
Some would say that D&D probably would not have had the same success if it were so... but it still sticks with me how awesome it is to have the benefits of technology today to collaborate on a hobby I grew up with.
Thanks to everyone out there who do these great things. Keep rolling with the dice. :)

You left out the myriad fanzines, often run off on a spirit duplicator, ditto machine, or the second generation photocopiers. (The first gen weren't plain paper, and the copy quality was utter drekh).

Oh trust me... I was in the mix of all of that in the late 70s and early 80s.
The days I will always cherish the most where when I would attend early GenCon events in Wisconsin where I would see and experience all of the great ideas that other players had and shared.
To enjoy the hobby back then, one had to make connections to other players the old fashioned way... relationship networking. But for a 11-16 year old youth back then, resources to do that were meager. I recall when older players would pick me up to drive me to gaming sessions because I could not drive. Telecommuting for a gaming session was NOT an option.

But that activity pales in comparison to the synergy and broad exchange of ideas that occurs today.
Limitations caused by distance or extent of personal relationships are now gone as long as one has a computer and an Internet connection... and know how to use both of them.
Heck, even this very conversation was a pipe dream back then.

I guess what I am trying to say is that even though I did connect with many other players back in the day, I still wonder just how much I may have missed and how awesome it would have been to be able to access such content and knowledge back then.

Oooo... thanks for the mention (on the flying snake) :cool:

The aim is to update bi-weekly, just using monsters and other stuff from the Basic Rules. Even with the rather limited selection there, it'll probably take forever.

So far I'm still only on the 1/8 challenge monsters, and the bestiary looks like this:

I'm still making improvements to Asmor's original Combat Tracker.

This resource for 5th Edition dungeon masters and players is about as developed as I can take it without Wizards complaining.

It is a free JavaScript off-line map, with pawns, rolling, and character sheet stats. A thanks to all of you who have given me fan resources over the years.
