Pathfinder: Are You Switching to 2e?

When I ask a question, anticipating a certain answer is when I get the most surprising answers. Recently on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and MeWe, we asked two simple questions: are you still playing Pathfinder 1e, and do you see yourself changing to 2e (or the playtest) anytime soon? I anticipated a mix of everythingContinue reading “Pathfinder: Are You Switching to 2e?”

5e: Dire Owl

A classic of the Worlds Oldest Fantasy Roleplaying Game involves giant animals. The origin of these is quite simple, someone trying to convince someone else that their fight with some animal was far more valiant because it was far larger than most. In a fight when the adrenaline is pumping, a fierce creature can seemContinue reading “5e: Dire Owl”

5e: Young Spiderbear

With Halloween fast approaching, we thought it would be fun to share one of our favorite monsters, the spiderbear. It is our own take on classic D&D mashup monsters like the owlbear. It is creepy and dangerous, terrifying for being both a spider and a bear, and an all around evil creature.  While this oneContinue reading “5e: Young Spiderbear”

Holidays in Gaming

Are you using holidays in your game? If you were like me when starting out as a game master, no you’re not. Yet holidays mark various places on the calendar, help recognize important persons and groups in your setting’s history, and much more. They give your game life where it otherwise feels flat, like there’sContinue reading “Holidays in Gaming”

Traveller RPG: Name This Ship

Hello Traveller Friends I has been some time since we have shared something for our favorite science fiction game. Today we are happy to share with you a little something we’ve been working on. Naturally, it is ships because we love having more ships in Traveller. If I am having a stressful day, designing aContinue reading “Traveller RPG: Name This Ship”

5e: Enter the Temple of Luminescence

Some Just Want to Watch the World Burn! When the high priest of the sun goddess brings the planet and the sun closer together to spread his deity’s light to every corner of existence, the world begins to heat up dangerously. All attempts to breach the Temple of Luminescence and halt the magic powering thisContinue reading “5e: Enter the Temple of Luminescence”

5e: Ancient Solar Dragon

Last week was the first preview of our upcoming 5e adventure Deadly Delves: Temple of Luminescence by showing off the greater fire elemental. While that is great and all, that is hardly something amazing. Sure it is really good for wizards and druids that want to conjure one of these bad boys up 17th levelContinue reading “5e: Ancient Solar Dragon”

5e/PFRPG: Wallpaper from the Temple

While I was preparing preview material for the upcoming 5e adventure Deadly Delves: Temple of Luminescence, I noticed that we never came up with wallpaper for the Pathfinder version. When I realized that, I knew I could not let that stand. The interior image by Jacob Blackmon is just far too awesome to let thatContinue reading “5e/PFRPG: Wallpaper from the Temple”

5e: Greater Fire Elemental

One of the challenges of converting a module from Pathfinder to 5e is the lack of monsters. 5e hasn’t been around as long as Pathfinder, Wizards hasn’t put out monster books at the same rate as Paizo, and only most of the monsters in the MM are open content while none of the monsters inContinue reading “5e: Greater Fire Elemental”
