Making Magic Eldritch!

Making Magic Eldritch!

Hello everyone! This week I released Lovecraftian Spells, a 5E supplement focusing on adding some cosmic horror to your spell lists. It has almost 30 new spells, guidelines for reskinning spells for your own needs, ideas for making the Madness rules a little more harsh, and ideas for spell themes. In the coming weeks there will be updates to wording and clarifications and in the coming months I hope to continue expanding the spell list. Below are a couple preview…

Sub-Class: Oni-Blooded Sorcerer

Sub-Class: Oni-Blooded Sorcerer

Hello everyone and welcome to another self-imposed challenge! When I had the Twitterverse vote on these, which feels like months ago, I was very happy that the Oni-Blooded sorcerer came out as one of the things I should try to do. In the time since then I have managed to produce an entry of the Libris Monstrum that talks about oni and come up with some ideas on what I might do with this class. We’re going to start with…

Sub-Class: Bard College of the Plague Doctor

Sub-Class: Bard College of the Plague Doctor

Okay everyone, I need to start today off by saying that this sub-class challenge has been just that: a challenge. Some of these come out better than others and all of them need a little work. There is something that is beginning to trend with my thought process though. For the Hag Coven wizard (find it here if you haven’t read it) I was unable to really flesh out the entire build. The farthest I got for features was level…

Sub-Class: Hag Coven Wizard

Sub-Class: Hag Coven Wizard

Today is a class archetype for 5th Edition that has been a bit of a conundrum for me. Where to start, what to do, what features to utilize, etc. The hag coven wizard was put on the Twitter poll because it sounded like a fun idea. People must have agreed because it did quite well in the running. Keep in mind that there is a poll up until tomorrow for the next entries into this series. You can find it…

Resources For Every GM: Internet Part 11

Resources For Every GM: Internet Part 11

Tonight I have three resources that are, essentially, free. Of course that is true for many of the internet-based resources that I post here. With today’s growing community and access to the internet, it becomes hard not to find new resources. Not all of them are great. Some still need to grow and develop (like me!). Others, though, are really fantastic. Today I try to share with you three of those fantastic online resources to add to your bookmarks. The…

Wandering Dev Diary #6: Savage Worlds Arcane Backgrounds

Wandering Dev Diary #6: Savage Worlds Arcane Backgrounds

As you may know I have been in the process of building a lot of things recently. Some of it has been directly blog related, but I have also been pretty inspired to build up a sort of preliminary campaign guide for my home brew material. This is something I can bring to the table and look through if I need too, especially as I continue to build more and more. I have also been working towards a Brave New…

Wandering Dev Diary #5: Keeping A Website

This was going to be about doing Spells of Old. Why I did them, how I do them, what’s coming after number four. Instead I want to talk a bit about this site and the constant learning process of it all. Building A Website The thing about building a website is that it is both accessible and easy these days. WordPress, Blogger, Wix, and more all offer you the ability to begin creating your own website. Often times there are…

RPG Blog Carnival: Angels & Demons

RPG Blog Carnival: Angels & Demons

Doomsdays. Dystopias. Apocalypses. The grim, dark end of civilization as the purity and ideals are siphoned from it. This is the topic for this month’s Blog Carnival, hosted by Daemons & Deathrays! Click on that link to head over to their original post for the month. You will find more entries commented at the bottom and they have also written a few posts on the subject themselves (both for the carnival and outside of it). I spent most of the…

Wandering Dev Diary #4: Making The Most Of Time

Wandering Dev Diary #4: Making The Most Of Time

Let’s talk about the one killer for development that hounds me most: time. I know I have talked a bit about this before, but I really want to discuss what I have been doing recently in regards to remedying my problems with time. I am going to do my best here in not listing reasons or excuses for why i haven’t done certain things. Instead, I want to assess the problems I have. Not just mention them, but dig into…

Wandering Dev Diary #3

Wandering Dev Diary #3

As always there is so much to work on and so little time. Especially with some of the real-life stuff going one. Nevertheless I have been doing my best to work on my projects. The most significant project in the past two weeks has been my first attempt at a published adventure. This adventure is a bit of a pet project and passion of mine. You see, it is based on the SCP universe. This is an internet-created community which…
