Review: Book of Heroic Races 1 & 2 5E

Review: Book of Heroic Races 1 & 2 5E

Hello everyone! Today I have a review twofer for you all. This time we go with a simple 5th Edition supplement in PDF form. There are so many of these out these days, especially on the DMs Guild, it can be difficult to find the good ones from the bad ones. Luckily for me I had the opportunity check out two from John Brazer Enterprises. To be fair, of course, this name might actually be familiar to you. They have…

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: Characters Part 2

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 2

Good evening! Tonight I have another Resources article for you that isn’t for your shelf or your bookmarks. No, tonight I have three characters that you will probably recognize, especially those of you who come form D&D backgrounds. If you don’t, or if you are new to D&D, then that’s even better! In the D&D worlds there are countless gods and goddesses, beings of immense enough power that you can ask them to grant you daily spells (clerics). There are…

Libris Monstrum #27: Cyclopes

Libris Monstrum #27: Cyclopes

Hey everyone! Today I am covering a creature from the table and mythology that tends to be well known, but also a bit obscure. Everyone knows what a cyclops is, but how much do you really know about these one-eyed giants? If you are anything like me, it isn’t much. Or…wasn’t. As we get started here I want you to know that for this topic I am going to take the standard myth vs. D&D approach. Before we do though,…

Re-skinning: Yeti Goblins!

Re-skinning: Yeti Goblins!

Good evening everyone! Tonight is a re-skin I am very happy you all decided to vote for. In fact, in thinking of how to go about it I kind of figured out a whole little new race of goblins that I want to make. Instead of talking about those or going crazy with designing them, I will stick to how to make yeti goblins. Hopefully this article will provide you with a fun alternative of goblins to use in your…

Resources For Every GM: Cartography Part 5

Resources For Every GM: Cartography Part 5

Good evening everyone! Tonight I bring you a Resources article featuring some terrific websites and pages for those who need maps. Add these to your bookmarks and worry even less about cartography for your game. Of course, at this point you might start worrying more because you have too many resources. Let’s just pretend that is something that doesn’t happen. Let’s assume you need ever more mapping utilities! Dungeon Painter Honestly, I do myself a disservice by continuously forgetting to…

Barbarian Path: Wendigo

Barbarian Path: Wendigo

Tonight is the start of something very special, the first of our monthly class archetype articles. Around the turn of the new year I decided to challenge myself with two new articles each month. The first of these articles would be a re-skinning article and the second would be to build a new subclass for fifth edition. In order to do this I asked Twitter to vote in a few polls. The results gave me some topics from which to…

Libris Monstrum #25: Kuo-toa

Libris Monstrum #25: Kuo-toa

Good evening everyone we are back, beginning with the Libris Monstrum. In the last entry I went over one of the more mythological creatures that you can find in the Monster Manual, the oni. This time we get to something a little more mundane but unique to D&D. Tonight I am going to be talking about one of my favorite semi-obscure monsters that belong directly within the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons & Dragons. The strange fish people live underground and…

Re-Skinning: Dinosaur Druid!

Re-Skinning: Dinosaur Druid!

Let me tell you, I am so excited that this was the second place winner in the poll to decide what re-skinning topics would show up here on Notes of the Wandering Alchemist. Like many, I fell in love with dinosaurs long ago and that love never dies away. A significant portion of my undergrad career included studying dinosaurs and having watched the realization and acceptance of feathered dinos has been awesome. As you know, near the top of my…

Review: The Death Knight’s Squire (Solo Adventure!)

Today we have something very interesting to share with you folks. The review is a 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons solo adventure, called The Death Knight’s Squire,¬†which went up back in September. Many of us at the time were quite curious about it and I talked with the RPG Kitchen about reviewing it. They are in the process of developing a website and resource for RPGs and I hope to see it added to the community soon. While their focus…
