I’ve spent the last few weeks collab’ing with Peter Peko to create this (free) 2-Minute Table Top – Forgotten Adventures portal-centric map duo. I hope you find it as much fun as we did!

Oh yeah, and check out Forgotten Adventures for a fun encounter primer utilising that skeletal dragon you can see. 😉

Aaand here they are, my first shot at 2D character tokens! What do you think of this 32-piece test run? I had a lot of fun making them, so please let me know if you’d like to see more! 

You can download them free here.

So I brought up the idea of playing D&D with a friend of mine and she said she knew someone who made and sold his own custom modules for it. But the thing was, if I bought one then I had to not let anyone know I had it or else we could get sued or arrested for it. What did my friend mean by that? Is it a copyright thing? Homebrewing is encouraged in D&D though so Idk how that makes any sense.

You can’t sell it, but even then I doubt they would notice. Yes, wizards of the coast technically has the copyright to dnd characters, but I haven’t heard they’re like Disney in vigilance or where they actively track down homebrew creations or makers (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). Basically, if you commission someone to do a custom character and that’s their own creation, you can’t sell copies of their work without permission. You also shouldn’t post it and claim it as yours. Also, they as an artist can fight the copyright against any other claiming it as their original work, you should just be the consumer. Otherwise, unless you’re somehow making money off of it at a pretty high rate I don’t think anyone would notice. I’m an artist; I want people to share my work and credit me, tell people about it and show my work, etc. so unless the stuff you have is stolen from someone else; it’s likely ok. Not an expert on this, but I have had classes on copyright law and read some of it pretty extensively.

I'm joining a new campaign soon (my third ever and the second one I'm currently playing in) and I'm playing a halfling rogue with a thief archetype. My friend is playing a large character and we're gonna do a team up that's kinda like Vanellope and Ralph from Wreck-It Ralph. Is this too cliche? Should I change it?

I’m so sorry as I don’t know how long this has sat in my asks but I think you should do it!! I have so much fun with my thief character.

Wonder how I draw trees and bushes, at the table and for my maps? In this video I do my best to explain the process. Please enjoy!

A Literary Pun

A friend’s Ranger is a mountain man type, we found him by himself in the woods and sort of adopted him into our party. His name is Anri. We played for weeks before he revealed his full name. 

Anri Dafid Thoroh. Who lived by himself at Wallden Pond. I’m impressed our friend played for so many sessions without giving away their pun of a character.

Those Mercantile Tokens I’ve been working on just came out the art-oven, and you can download them for free below – there’s 177 in all! 

I’d love to see what you create, so please share. 🙂

The Silver Dragon

So I am fairly new to DnD and so far I have a lot of interesting stories that happened between all of our characters including one of our characters getting the mind version of an STD. But that isn’t my favorite.

My favorite is where my noob showed.

Earlier in the adventure, my character (a metal warforge monk who doesn’t have to breath) decided to walk in a river to find any treasure. The river is one that dwarves use to travel a lot so I ended up finding metals, gold, and gems. Awesome! that really paid off (I proceeded to walk into ever river I see since then including one that was a 95 foot drop. I got out.) Also earlier I had to assist in building myself a new body. Now my character is freaking great at being a smithy. I am talking like +20 between all of the bonuses I gathered.

Because I was in debt because someone decide to break my arm and enlist help from others to fix me, I needed to go get silver dragon scales or 17,000 gold since my body was made of mithral. Not knowing how I was going to do this, I just moved on with life till I figured it out. Bought a master work hammer because if I am apparently master smithy now I should have a good hammer (or any hammer), wrap the handle in cloth for extra effect and back to the dwarven city where we are staying for now!

So I research that Silver Dragons like jewelry and stuff like that so me with my metals and master hammer go down to the dwarven forges to make some jewelry (I ended up making a wondrous ring, yes I still have it) till I was satisfied with the amount I had. Leave my baby sentient ring up in my room, take a party member with me that is lawful something so the dragon doesn’t decide to keep ME, and up the mountain to find the dragon.

The thing is….The dragon is ancient. I had no idea what that meant and I only sent two characters to go grab the scales I need. Couldn’t be too big, right? Wrong. One conversation, a thank you to god that my character wasn’t kept as decoration, and two loose scales in our possession later it was time to head back down the mountain.

Only the scales were as tall as my character.

My character is 6’‘9’

After many people explaining to me my noobish mistake (though I got two dragon scales, what ya’ll complaining about), we decided to surf the dragon scales down the mountain. We couldn’t take it into the city that way, so we ended up having to drag them. Of course there was a commotion when we entered the DWARVEN city with TWO GIANT SILVER DRAGON SCALES. One of our party members noticed and I ended up having my character act like it was nothing special. We are keeping one scale and giving the other to the druids. Don’t know how we are going to get it to the druids, but we will figure that out later.

This was also the character that believed literally everything another character said even after it was proven that they had been lying to her.
