I love when I see a thing that was originally a Kickstarter campaign not only fund and then deliver, but become available for general release. This is one such story. You can now order the Godsfall worldbook for your very own. Godsfall is a setting for 5th Edition based on the Godsfall podcast. There...

A DM, in my opinion, can never have too many resources at their disposal when it comes time to run the game. Pre-made adventures are a nice way to get your game going without having to spend hours and hours of prep time on it. You just open up to Page 1 and go. In […]...

I think we can all agree that gaming is fun and good. Well, what can be even more fun and good? Gaming for a cause, of course! Wizards of the Coast certainly thinks so, and that’s why they are participating in the Extra Life charity event to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital. An...

Dungeons & Dragons is a great game. However, it can, occasionally, be rough to try and keep up with everything for it. The various books and other supplemental material offer players and DMs lots of chances for customization, but it can occasionally be a bit daunting to sort through it. ThatR...

You’ve often heard me talk about how it’s always good for a DM/GM to have access to pre-made items to make running their games go more smoothly and so they don’t have to create everything for their game from whole cloth. Well, the One Shot Compendium is just such a thing. It’s...
