Hello all! I recently began writing a small story about the latest DnD campaign I’m in, and when my DM found out he asked me if I would share it on here. The story takes place in the forgotten realms setting. In the region of Faerun, in the country of Damara. It is narrated by an npc. A few warnings I would like to get out of the way before I post the first chapter are as followed: there will be character death, cussing, violence, drug use, adult themes, and very bad spelling. Thank you Tim and Leah for helping with the edits!!! Please feel free to leave any feed back at all good or bad.
The orc pulled his bloodied fist away from my brother's rib cage, smiling at his handy work. Kydrin, my brother, took in a sharp breath as he was assaulted, now he was coughing ...

Welcome back! Sorry it took me so long to post this chapter! A few things happened recently that made it very hard to concentrate on writing anything Thank you sooooo much Tim for helping me with the edits!!! It helps me a ton! I also plan on having a bonus/side/extra chapter posted some time in the next week. I hope you enjoy!
As Twigs and I made our way through the dense brush to the group, I could hear the smacking sound of fists beating skin. After a few feet the brush gave way to a marsh. The ground became mushy under my boots. Twigs' bare feet made slurping sounds as she pulled them out of the mud. I hated how she walked about without shoes. I hated how her green dress mixed with the dirt at the bottom and she didn't care about how dirty it looked. I...

Welcome to chapter three. I would like to thank everyone who is still reading this. Please feel free to rate or leave a comment. I would like to mention how boring the first couple of chapters are but things are finally heating up now that all that character development is done. Ok I will stop ranting now.
The wide open valley of Damara was dotted with small rolling hills and frozen grasslands. A chilled breeze blew over the tall grass, causing a gentle sway. The clouds in light blue sky above appeared as small white specks hovering over the distant mountains. The breeze blew a sweet sent with the air as it chilled the land around us. The exact opposite of the cramped and buzzing city I just left. I always enjoyed the open areas of the ...

Hello every and welcome to my first blog post. For the past few weeks I've have been trying to get my friends to play dnd but we don't really have anything except for the three essential books to play dnd and dungeon tiles but no sort of map to set up or campaign to play. I am wanting to DM but I'm not very imaginative and I don't believe anyone in my group wants to try to DM or is imaginitive enough to do so. I'm wanting to run a prewritten campaign and warm the others up to the game to get a feel for being a player and watching how to be a DM. Once I play my first game I'll post it on here so feel free to give some input like advice, tips, thing I'm doing wrong, what I should or shouldn't do in certain situations, etc... Wish me the best of luck and I'll post the experience on here when...

Hello again! Well here is chapter two. I hope you enjoy chapter two. It is mostly character development. Next chapter will be up on Monday.
"He is coming back around. Everyone quiet."
This couldn't be. I was dead, why could I hear that women's voice? I felt the sharp cold blade at my throat moments ago. I could feel the warmth of my blood spilling on to my shirt. No. No, I had to be dead.
My lungs burst with air as I tried to scream, a hallow, empty choking noise was all I could manage though. Flinging my eyelids open I tried to glare at the women I could feel standing before me. My eyes, however where already accustomed to the darkness from being deceased, therefore everything in the room was a blur of...

Hello and welcome to part 2 of how to make a DnD campaign, today i will be focusing on how to start building the world itself.
An entire world, massive and filled with mystery. You have ready history textbooks, but even they only cover certain parts of Earths history. Eventually you will be making an entire world come to life right before your eyes. Details from simple statements to full on articles about subjects in your world. It seems like a daunting task, but really, it can be broken down into a step by step process.
1. To get started, begin by coming up with a thesis or a single sentence that could describe your world. Try to make it less than 50 words. Use the most descriptive language you can. The more condensed it is while still conveying...

Creating a Campaign for your players is a daunting task. The Dungeon Master Guide's from every edition can help you get it started.
I have found with making different campaigns that it isn't about where you start, or where it is suppose to end, but rather what you want your players to gather along the way. Sometimes knowing the many great things you hope them to achieve is more important that knowing the exact geography of a low part of some trench. Whether or not you actually have all the information to support a given region that you players hope to explore is not important. All you should have about every region (to start that is) is what lies their that makes it different from other regions. Give it a story that needs explaining, solving, or deciphering. Your players...

So i was going over the different races of Dungeons and Dragons, and i have come to the conclusion. Dwarfs are the best race. They are tough no matter what class you choose. They NEVER get knocked down (contrary to the popular Chumba Wumba song). They also can drink and eat pretty much anything (Starting with but not limited to Mead, Beer, Wine, Ale, and even pure Posion!). What could possibly be a better race? I don't think there is!

Dungeons and Dragons FATE RPG
Once upon a time in a far away land there was a band of heroes…
I’ve been planning to write this blog for a while, particularly with the development of Dungeons and Dragons Next. Just to warn you, this blog is not actually about the new D&D. The actual development of D&D Next looks promising, with a long period of open play-testing ahead. A simple core rule system with modular rules that can be added or excluded are all very smart goals to keep D&D tabletop games competing with video games. I would like to point out that a role play game called FATE, not to be confused with the video game, has been around for some time. It does much of what D&D Next is trying to achieve. I’ve talked about this system before in a past blog, but will...
