Ok, another one. That's a pretty bad title, and this is definitely going to be straying into the area of Mahasarpa and other old alternate settings for D&D. So I was thinking again about the idea of alternate Asian-inspired settings and thought of one inside a hollow world, with a sort of Monkey-esque feel to … Continue reading Another New Idea – Hollow World
OK, so here's another D&D idea I've got brewing - yes, there's always too many. I suppose this links up a bit with my Beyond the Pale idea, but whatever. So this game would centre around the Feywild, but be more about the creatures native to it, and the various different courts of the Seelie … Continue reading New Idea – Twixt Flower and Thorn

So, a blue Slaad had just attacked the party and managed to skewer us all pretty handily. Then he called out and summoned a couple of red Slaadi... great!

The Tabaxi Fighter was trying to cheat people at a game of Liar's Dice and failing, the Human Ranger and the Kobold Warlock were busy drinking, and then … Continue reading Come Hell or High Water – Bouyan II
So, on with the adventure! After a series of traumatic rounds of combat (Loge almost died very quickly, despite setting the boar on fire twice), we managed to beat the thing, and carry on our way to the Githzerai monastery. Part of the way there, a Dao slave ship (they're earth-aligned Djinn, and Loge grew … Continue reading Loge lost in Limbo
Well, I've rounded out 250 posts already. Yay! In celebration, let's go back to the start, and consider some ideas for converting my years-long-rpg-baby the Old Crown setting to 5e D&D. This is a question I've been mulling over for a few years. The Old Crown began as a D&D setting, and sort of evolved … Continue reading Does the Old Crown work in D&D 5e?
