    Five Things to Love about The Acquisitions Incorporated book

    The Acq Inc handbook for Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition has just come out and it is a pretty fantastic book, even for someone like me who does not watch/listen to Acq Inc. Acquisitions Incorporated, as best I understand it, is a live play podcast in which the characters are in the Forgotten Realms, in this campaign it is a little more The Office or Office Space meets adventuring.   I do not like campaigns that are intended to be comedic. I think with the right groups it works, but I…

    Bard DnD 5e Optimization Guide | Not Just Another Song and Dance

    Bards have gone from being one of the hardest classes to qualify for in Dungeons and Dragons, to the laughing stock of the party, and finally in 4e they really began to show their true selves and now in 5e they are one of the best classes in the game. Much like the Barbarian guide I hope this will help build a Bard that will be an amazing addition to the party. I learned a fair amount from building that last guide and I think this one will be a…

    Life Aboard A Ship in D&D 5e Part 2: Duties on a Ship

    It has been a little while since I have visited this topic, but now with the new book from D&D coming out, it seems like a good time to jump back into the subject. This post is going to go into more of the top level system agnostic information, and I will likely structure future posts like this until the new D&D book rolls out. I don’t want to present house rules for something that there are official rules for. So without further ado. Duties on a Pirate Ship Review…

  • Building a D&D Campaign like a Marketeer | DM Tips

    While sitting at a digital marketing conference this week I started to think about Dungeons and Dragons. The thing about Dungeons and Dragons is as a DM you are the marketer, and your customers are the party, and your product is the campaign. Over the next few paragraphs, I am going to show how I might plan a Dungeons and Dragons campaign like I might plan a marketing campaign. Building The Funnel The first thing we are going to do is build our funnel. Where are our players going to…

  • An Optimization Guide to Ravnica

    Magic the Gathering in my D&D? What is a gamer to do? Instead of doing a review of the book. I am going to go through chapter by chapter and look at the character options. I am debating whether I will add the Guild Master’s Guide To Ravnica to my normal optimizations guides or to keep it separate. But, for the time being, I will be keeping it separate and I may include it later down the road. **Update 1/16/19 – I just changed hosting, so hopefully I won’t be running into…

  • Barbarian 5e Optimization Guide | Toughest in the Land

    Barbarians are a staple of fantasy and fantasy gaming and in the 5th edition of Dungeons and Dragons, it is no different. When building a new Barbarian for your next game, whether it is for your home game or joining in with the Adventures League, it is always handy to have a quick guide to help sift through all the choices that lay before you. If you are a long time player, you are familiar with these types of guides and the troupes that go along with them. There will be…

  • What We Can Learn | My Hero Academia | DM Tips

    What We Can Learn from My Hero Academia as a DM Welcome to my first in the series of DM tips that are generated from different sources that are around us all the time.

When we are looking at pacing and storytelling one of the hardest things…

    Life Aboard a Ship in D&D 5e Part 1: Crew | World Building in D&D 5e

    Life abroad a ship in a Forgotten Realms or any D&D Setting – Part 1: Crew. Life on a ship on the sword coast or dragon coast is not going to be an easy one. Not only do you have to deal with other sailors, pirates, and the weather, but you also have to contend with the monsters that roam the sea. Later in this series I am going to have some nautical based encounters that you can run for you hearty crew of adventurers, but this series of posts…

    An Introduction to Pirates in D&D | World Building Dungeons and Dragons 5e

    Introduction to Pirates in your D&D Campaign. How do I run Pirates in my home game? I love pirate history and I love pirate fantasy. Both are fascinating and something I spend a lot of time thinking about. I almost started up a pirate podcast and sometimes I go spend an entire weekend dressed like a pirate. This is known among my friends, so I often get the question ‘Am I running these pirates right?’ or the request that I left them know if they do something wrong. To this,…

    Monster Roles & Tactics | D&D 5e Table Tips

    Monster Roles in D&D 5e Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition has a mechanic in which if you damage someone who is unconscious they will slip closer to death by automatically failing a death saving throw, and three death saves and your character is dead. When as a DM do you decide that the enemy is going to make that attack or move on to the next threatening target? For this, the 4th edition of D&D had some basic guidelines. I am going to take those guidelines and expand on them.…
