How to Play as Spider-Man in Fifth Edition (And Still Keep Things Balanced)

Something I've been stewing on for a while: how to bring superpowers into Fifth Edition. I've had ideas for creating new classes and a few other things, but nothing really stuck. The trick is keeping it balanced in the game without making things "cheap." In other words, I want to make a superhero that has … Continue reading How to Play as Spider-Man in Fifth Edition (And Still Keep Things Balanced)

Stat Anything: The Night King | New Challenge for Fifth Edition

I just finished up Game of Thrones (yeah, I know I'm late to the party). In terms of Fifth Edition stats, most of the stuff in Game of Thrones is pretty self-explanatory (although Game of Thrones dragons aren't really Dungeons & Dragons dragons, I digress). If there was one creature that stuck out in the … Continue reading Stat Anything: The Night King | New Challenge for Fifth Edition

Thanos the Mad Titan | New NPC for Fifth Edition (Major Spoilers)

Everyone likes a good BBEG. And lately, there hasn't been much better than Thanos. Of course, when it comes to creating someone like Thanos, you have to be super careful not to screw things up. People are going to scrutinize every aspect of the build. In the past, when doing a Stat Anything, I showed … Continue reading Thanos the Mad Titan | New NPC for Fifth Edition (Major Spoilers)

Stat Anything: The Power Stone, First of the Six Infinity Stones | Artifact for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

We all knew it'd come to this. Eventually, I'd break down and create the Infinity Stones, the Gauntlet, and of course, everyone's favorite purple villain, Thanos. To kick it off, I thought I'd start with the first stone that Thanos collected: the Power Stone. Playtest Content The material here is presented for playtesting and to spark … Continue reading Stat Anything: The Power Stone, First of the Six Infinity Stones | Artifact for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Olmec (from Legends of the Hidden Temple) | For Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition (with Design Notes)

This is a great request. It comes in as part of a contest I held recently to pick a special attack for the blutgeist monster I created here on the blog. The winner got to put in a request that appeared at the top of the request pile. Whoop whoop!

Stat Anything: Gremlins (Mogwai) | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

This morning, while tossing and turning, I got the wild idea to create Gremlins from the 1984 Joe Dante movie. If you aren't familiar with gremlins, they are small, lizard-like creatures that live to cause havoc. They spawn from mogwai that have eaten after midnight and they multiply when you put water on them. In … Continue reading Stat Anything: Gremlins (Mogwai) | Monsters for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

The Ominmortis | Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition [Updated]

I love this gig. Not just because I get to constantly write about the world's #1 roleplaying game, but sometimes I get some... unusual... requests. Earlier today as I was going through my Instagram DM requests, I got a message from a fella named Matt. "Hey, can I get some advice? I'm a new DM … Continue reading The Ominmortis | Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition [Updated]

Beholder, Abretheghals | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

Imagine if your nightmares came to life. Any of them. How pleasant would it be to wake up and find yourself face-to-face with whatever stress-generated phantasm your mind concocted while you were unconscious? Imagine some ghoul that looks like you, naked, with all its teeth falling out. Perhaps your mind would create childhood embarrassments given … Continue reading Beholder, Abretheghals | New Monster for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

El Ocho Campaign Setting for Fifth Edition

Kicking things off with the Patreon page, I'll be creating a cool, new 5e setting called El Ocho. This original setting will take place in a fantasy version of Mesoamerica (modern-day Latin America and South America) that will combine elements of typical old-school fantasy, pulp Luchador stories from the early 20th century, classic horror, and … Continue reading El Ocho Campaign Setting for Fifth Edition

Stat Anything: Michael Myers for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition

In the spirit of Halloween (and the movie Halloween is currently the #1 movie in America), I decided to cook up stats for that ol' '70's horror icon, Michael Myers.  Michael Myers is a fictional character from the Halloween series of slasher films. He first appears in John Carpenter's Halloween (1978) as a young boy who murders his sister, Judith Myers, and then, fifteen years later, … Continue reading Stat Anything: Michael Myers for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition
