Post-Apocalipticon After Action Report

Last year, I planned on attending this con, but decided to cancel my plans after I lost my job and had to find a new one. As money got tightened, cons were the first thing to get cut. This year however, the situation is back to normal and I was able to attend. Despite an open invitation, only ActionMan wanted to go, so it would be a boys-weekend. We were going to play Adventure League all weekend. As the two of us were Tier 2 (I was level 8 and ActionMan's Sir Patrik character was level 6), we got to play higher level. FridayI left work at my usual time (around noon), and headed home. There, I prepared our luggage and made sure our stuff was ready to go. As soon as ActionMan arrived from school, we jumped in the car and drove down I-24 towards Chattanooga, then on to Cleveland. Yes, there is a Cleveland in Tennessee! My phone ran the Kings and Generals channel where we learned and talked about subjects as varied as the Roman Empire, Greek "Empire", Samurais, the Wars of the Roses, and Napoleon. I do this

Maliad Nymph: A new race for 5e

[Ravenloft] Dreams of Dust Feedback

This past week, I received feedback from my playtesters. You may remember my public call in this call from October 2. I must say the three groups who ventured into the adventure provided me with some very useful feedback. Without spoilers, I will try and summarize some of the best elements that came back. - Play time is around 12-hours: This makes it a little longer than I expected, but that is also a good thing, putting the adventure right in that sweet spot where you get to play up to 15h depending on your party. Good. - Needs a better introduction: The introduction was short and simple on purpose. However, this did not go over well and everyone mentioned that the party spent time trying to discover what to do. - The story works: Both GMs and players reported that the adventure was well-organized with a very sandbox-y story. Almost all GMs mentioned that the multi-point way to resolve the plot really stood out. I was very glad to hear this one because I spent a lot of time trying to break the railroad

New Races: Naiad Nymph for 5e

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. Nymph: NaiadNaiads are nymphs of springs, ponds, and those waterways too small to be ruled over by a greater divinity. Naiads prefer freshwater to salt water dwellings and the confines of such waterways to the vast expanse of the sea. Naiads are reclusive, shy and quiet. They observe and obsess over those they love from the safety of the waters. They do not always understand that other creatures do not share their affinity to water and have lured many lovers to a watery doom. Naiad FeaturesYour nymph character has several traits in common with all other nymphs. Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma and Dexterity scores each increase by 1. Age.

New Races: Lampad Nymph for 5e

Continuing my series of Greece-inspired races for 5th Edition. Nymph: LampadLampads are the dour nymphs of the underworld. Perhaps the most worldly of the nymphs, they serve as entourages to the goddesses of the Underworld. They take their name from the lamp they carry through the world of the dead to light their way. Lampads are very pale with long dark hair. They are the least self-centered or vain of the nymphs, looking like the shades they preside over. As such, they are the least sociable of the nymphs, preferring the presence of non-lampads to that of their sisters. Lampad FeaturesYour nymph character has several traits in common with all other nymphs. Ability Score Increase. Your Charisma and Dexterity scores each increase by 1. Age. You grew very quickly from a young age and matured around age ten. From there, you will change very little the rest of your lives. You can live up to ten centuries. Size.

New Series: Races of the Greeks for 5th Edition

I have been in something of an ancient world thing for the past year or so, with working on Akhamet and spending time on a Greek-thing (whose name I keep changing all the time). During this time, I filled my Dropbox with like a million small files about potential races, monsters, and adventure ideas. I am at a point where I need to create a folder just for this. After going through a series of iterations, I decided to focus on three types of nymphs, all of which would be playable by PCs. Since the Monster Manual already includes a dryad entry, I wanted to create something new. Part of this series, I will present the statistics for new races I plan on adding to my finalized Greek book. I already have a few races out there: Amazon, Medusan, Olympian, and Titanborn. The races in these blog posts will be allowed choices in both the Legacies Organized Play Campaign, but also any game I run. I may gather these into a Gostor book in the meantime, and create a Herolab plugin to create these as characters.
