D&D 5th Edition Campaign: SWSTS - New Feats

So this post was pretty out of the blue and to be honest, it'll probably be the only one for a while again. Breaking my foot had more of a toll on my motivation than I realised and I haven't been so good at getting myself working recently. Anyway, I took a detour from writing plot stuff to generate some SWSTS specific feats. I wanted to generate some tempting options for my players that ease their passage through the Plague City of Kaladoss.

D&D 5th Edition Campaign: SWSTS - Bonus Post

Ooh! What's this? A bonus post after only one week? It was quite a rush to get the last one out so I wanted to follow it up with something that shows the level of detail I'm going for. Also, I wanted to dress things up a little. Who doesn't love a good bit of weathering?

D&D 5th Edition Campaign: SWSTS - The Plague City of Kaladoss

D&D 5th Edition Campaign: SWSTS - The Plague City of Kaladoss

Kaladoss is a human city that was carved out of the very mountain, Kala, itself. It is supported by the surrounding farm villages and flies the banner of the Queen of Spring alongside its own. Before the Fall, Kaladoss was run under the eye of Lord Kedamir. He was an apt ruler who saw potential in Kaladoss’s majesty and promoted tourism in his city’s infrastructure. He founded the Adventurer’s guild and pushed for the development of monuments, parks and festivals to draw attention to the city.

D&D Homebrew: Dr Modwick's Wonder Wagon

I would like to introduce the ever-enthusiastic Doctor Modwick. People like the Doctor leave those they meet wondering if the gods of Fate and Fortune are playing some sort of practical joke on them. He is the reason the Royal Academy of Wizardry raised their standards for passing grades. He is the incentive behind gnomish tinkerers updating their ciphers every six months. He is the catalyst for the Alchemists Guild training apprentices to triple check their working. And he's the most successful merchant to travel the King's Roads according to Mrs Modwick.

D&D NPC Spotlight: Ed the Cackler

D&D NPC Spotlight: Ed the Cackler

Ed's behaviour was initially met with unease and many of the Wardogs abandoned the pack to find other, more stable ones. Those who stayed, however, found something inspirational in the manic cacophony their leader made. In battle he would dance around, jangling his mane, laughing at his allies and enemies alike and causing a primal ruckus. Caught in its wake, the Wardogs, or more aptly named "Maddogs", would be stirred into a frenzy. As they say; laughter is contagious...

...and you can't spell "slaughter" without it...

D&D NPC Spotlight: Hektar of Ulwitch

D&D NPC Spotlight: Hektar of Ulwitch

The purpose of this miniseries is twofold. It's an homage to the old role-playing magazines and Monster Manuals I spent so many hours lost in; to the dragons and knights, the vampires and werewolves, the orcs and elves, the goblins and Bowies, the grimlocks and lockjaws, the slaads and salads, the flails, the snails and everything in between. Also, it's a quick out when it's been two weeks since your last post and you haven't had two consecutive days without something on...

Scotty Makes Games: 5e Campaign

So I'm writing my first Dungeons & Dragons campaign in 5th Edition. The narrative will have a very post-apocalyptic feel to it and to help create that atmosphere I've cooked up some homebrew things featured in this week's post. This is just the first draft so any and all things are subject to change. As a work in progress I hope to post significant developments as I make them.
