November Blogs-2-Read

There's lots of great people in the D&D community doing cool things, and there's always neat blogs that get missed on this site. I'm highlighting a few that have caught my eye the past couple months:

105. ShadeRaven's Horde of the Dragon Queen Campaign - Session 7

Session 7 – ShadeRaven’s Horde of the Dragon Queen Campaign (2 ½ hour game)

Journal Entry by Myles Stormgroom Cleric of Silvanus

 

Back in the governor’s keep, we were able to rest.  I purchased some rations and the rest of the party did the same.  I was also able to pick up a rapier which the governor’s guards gave to me since I was part of the group who helped them defend Greenest.  I much prefer the slender blade.  It reminds me of the weapons my Eleven trainers used when I was younger.

Open Letter, Digital Tools

Dear Wizards,

 

I'm sure you've noticed the large amount of activity around the topic of digital tools for D&D, specifically the 5th edition ruleset. There seems to be a lot of frustration and I think I can explain it. Your players love the system and see a gap that technology can fill. Many of us even have the technical skills to bridge the gap ourselves, but are unable to distribute these tools due to your IP. This creates a situation where we feel stuck, willing but unable to help.

D&D Basic Illustrated

The D&D Basic Rules are a bit on the bland side when it comes to art, so as a project, mostly for my own amusement I thought I would try to illustrate the rules, including races, classes, monsters, spells, statuses and skills.

 

To start off, here are the adventuring party, representing all four basic races and classes:

Published Adventures: Yea or Nay?

Every Wednesday, I sit down at my local game store and play in the Horde of the Dragon Queen (written by Kobold Press). I still find published adventures to be an odd duck with me personally because I got my GMing start with White Wolf games where published adventures were non-existant and generally frowned upon by those that played it. Even after playing D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder for years, it took me quite some time to actually use a published adventure myself.

Lots to Report

Two sessions now, after that minor disruption as WotC did whatever they did to the site...

 

***

 

The party found a group of cultists sheltering in one of the houses.  They'd boarded it up from the inside, but an angry lion could break down all barriers.  The survivors of the assault admitted to working for the cult of the dragon, low-ranking mooks who were here to meet with the green dragon that had taken up residence in the tower on the hill.  They had yet to build up the courage to go and talk with it as yet.
