Scaling Ability Checks in D&D 5e Are Not Fun

Dungeons and Dragons

In my research for my post earlier this week on how different systems handle skill checks, I found that a number of DMs like to use scaling ability checks. I’m absolutely not a fan as they take away from the players and create a sense of “difficulty for the sake of difficulty”. A scaling ability […]

Skill Checks: The Good, The Bad, and The D&D 5e

Tabletop RPG Featured Image

D&D 5e is hands-down my favorite tabletop RPG. I’m big into combat and dungeon delving and those are arguably two of the focuses of D&D 5e. That being said, I don’t shy away from trying out different systems. It’s a good way to find out how other systems handle RPG mechanics such as skill checks. […]

Implementing Explosives and Guns in D&D 5e

Dungeons and Dragons

Explosives and guns in D&D 5e are where many groups draw a line in the sand. Traditionally speaking, it sort of makes sense since most groups opt for a more medieval, high fantasy, or Tolkien-esque setting. There weren’t any guns in any of these settings so it’s a bit jarring to include them. However, in […]

Dealing with Dungeon Master Burnout

Tabletop RPG Featured Image

I’d wager that Dungeon Master burnout is one of the top 3 reasons for a D&D campaign dying off. It can be a lot of work to prep for your sessions, doubly so if you’re creating a homebrew campaign. Depending on how experienced a DM you are you may even deal with some stage-fright before […]

How to Create an Amazing D&D Character Backstory

Dungeons and Dragons

Thankfully though, you don’t need to me to make a great backstory for your next character! Think of your backstory as the foundation of your character. This is who […]
