Resources For Every GM: Audio Part 2

Resources For Every GM: Audio Part 2

I have spent a pretty good amount of time recently focusing on inspiration for your games. There is a lot of it out there and it can be more useful than any rule book or source book. In the coming weeks I will have some more inspiration for you, but I also wanted to include some tools. Today I have some audio resources for you, but sadly only two. These can be pretty hard to come by and one of…

Resources For Every GM: Artifacts, MacGuffins, & Red Herrings Part 4

Resources For Every GM: Artifacts, MacGuffins, & Red Herrings Part 4

Hello everyone! For those who are relatively new to the blog I need to start by not only welcoming you, but also by warning you. This resource category is probably the most misnamed and/or hodgepodge grouping I have on the whole site. While originally meant to utilize famous, or infamous, examples of these object tropes, the category is a bit of a catch-all for story-telling devices. As such, we continue that trend with three interesting concepts that, in themselves, aren’t…

Mini-Review: Role vs. Roll

Mini-Review: Role vs. Roll

Hello everyone, this week I am taking some more time to review a physical product for the table. This time, though, it isn’t just for Game Masters but for the table as a whole. It is one meant to be used by everyone, can be used in any game, and hopefully adds some fun to your sessions! The product is a deck of cards known as Role vs. Roll and it made by Jack Monkey Games who you might recognize…

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 3 / Horror Part 5

Resources For Every GM: Characters Part 3 / Horror Part 5

Hello everyone, we’re back to the Resources with more inspirational works. This time we have three characters from the horror genre. More specifically, these are characters of Lovecraftian horror. If you are new here you may not have seen how much I love cosmic horror, but I do and for good reason. It holds concepts of philosophical horror that other tales just don’t connect with. Sure, other tales are less weird or more humanized, but that is why I love…

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…

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…

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…

An Early 2018 Update!

An Early 2018 Update!

It has been a while since I have done a real update here on the blog, so I thought I would take a few moments to share what has been going on with me and what we are doing here. As you may know (I have a tendency to repeat myself), I have been hard at work restraining the scope of what I am doing here at Notes of the Wandering Alchemist. So too have I been trying to relax…

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…
