@dungeons Adventurers! Listen up! Our situation is precarious. Shannon, our Gnome Barbarian, is at 83% health and faces a 🦁 Lizard❤️. There are 4 options in the next poll. However, my recommendation is to take option 3, ⛺Short Rest (+❤️ -🎲). This can regain some HP for Shannon, without great risk. In the next fight, use the terrain and environment to your advantage. Good luck! #dungeon_guide #DnD
Today in #dnd I sent a crooked, scheming merchant to encounter the team, at night, so that one of my players would kill them or swindle them out of their goggles of night vision, because that player complained about not wanting to use spell slots to get night vision...
So...They didn't do THAT...
but would later attempt to steal the knife they found in the back of an innocent murder victim.
In today's #DnD session I got to describe the collapse of a city build on the cavern walls of a raging alpine river down into the river.
An ancient dragon invasion with a supporting army decimated the place. The PCs are now left to pick up the pieces.
I have had just a ton of trouble making dice lately -- I took some time away because I was discouraged, and when I came back to it I wasted an entire batch of silicone trying to make new molds. So I got discouraged again and stopped.
I'm back on my bullshit now though, and have gone back to basics, rebuilding my process from scratch. I'm documenting the steps this time so I don't forget. Future posts on this thread will be followers only, so feel free to follow or ignore #dicefail.
1. buff the sides of the master die to ensure there are no finger prints, dust, etc.
2. cut a 4" square piece of book binding tape and place it sticky side up on a cutting mat.
3. place the die 1 side down on the center of the tape, using the grid to guide you. Do not reposition it! If it is off center, restart from step one.
4.Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the inside of a PVC coupler with your finger. I'm using 1.5" couplers for 20mm dice. 16mm dice will probably work with 1.25 or 1" couplers but take a (non master) die set to the hw store to measure.
5. seal the edges of the couplers using hot glue. Do not lift the coupler from the surface of the cutting mat! The tape has to stay perfectly flat.
6. Cover the top of the coupler with masking tape or whatever (don't waste book binding tape on this). this is to keep dust and debris out of it while you prep the remainders.
The conjure jungle minions spell used by priests of Ragarra transformed young crocodiles into the goddess's savage minions.

My #ObsidianMD articles outperform my general #DnD articles (with one exception) by about 1000%. Maybe it's time for more?
We were going to watch the #DnD movie with our kids, but then we decided to watch the cartoon series with them first so they'll get the cameo. And now I know where the old movie got the idea for a beholder as a watchdog. https://youtu.be/a0DvkGy1I1s
You think you want to Speak With Plants? Okay, player, that's fine. Shit's gonna get real depressing, tho.
Random #DnD thought: I think the thing I'd most like to see in the 2024 Monster Manual is a chaotic good celestial.
Alas, what we're more likely to see is no alignment on anything at all.
No #DnD tonight. Everyone is feeling bleh one way or another.
I will post if I'm able, but I am a little cautious about posting pictures now.
Feel free to chat me up here or on Wire. I should be around most of the rest of the day.
My first completed mini paint in probably several decades. I think I want to keep doing this. Anyone have any advice for improving? #dnd #minipainting #ttrgp #modelpainting #dndminis

Today was the first Session and I'm so hyped!
The PC is a halfling rogue of Clan Boromar - so... of course we have to kick this off with a heist! 😄
The backstory, heroic chronicle etc have given me a lot of hooks, this will be so much fun 🤩
If you're curious, I found ideas to adapt the Heroic Chronicle on the offical Eberron discord 💜
And the "Session Zero Game" by Meghan Cross is my all time favourite. Can't recommend it highly enough 🥰

Last year I was freaking out and overwhelmed by my tasks but...
Last night I onboarded the 10th adventurer into our task slaying guild!
Dayquest (like Dungeons and Dragons but for tasks) has helped me help 9 other people organize their work, track their productivity, and have fun slaying tasks.
Out of 10 Adventurers -
1 is Silver
4 are Bronze
5 are Copper
One of our bronze members will be ranking up to Silver this week!
Last week was productive! Here are some of my favorites:
- Bombard Spelljammer
- Void Dragons
- Bugbear Rogue
- Wind Dragons
As usual they're all ready for #3Dprinting & free.

I picked up the Old School Essentials boxed sets, and I’m kind of disappointed in the declared open content. Example, the only thing declared open content in the Advanced Players Guide is a list of secondary skills. Really, they couldn’t open elves or dwarves? They are some secret proprietary race?
It’s a fine enough system, but if I want to publish old school adventures I’ll look elsewhere. Or more likely use the 5e CC and call it good.

Here's a couple more mini's painted up for if/when I start to run BarrowMaze in person again.
The gargoyles are 5 identical models from Blacklist (I tried to give them some variety in the basing), and the others are 'iron cobras' and 'iron defenders' from wizkids...
...though I'll be using them as clockwork cobras and brass jackals.
Anyway, hope you like 'em :)

I’m going to be that person saying #DnD price increases are good for our entire hobby. It’s wild how well made and lavishly produced today’s books are, and how much use we can get from them. Basic Rules are free and cover what many RPGs would consider a whole game. Lots of free adventures and supplements out there. The game is super affordable as a whole.

The plot is stupid, makes very little sense and is held together by dreams and Spiderwebs, so it might be the most true to the source material that it could be.
