Modern Spells to Die By

Comments from the Finger: Earlier this week, I realized that there wasn't a spell that runs over my enemies with a bus. I decided to rectify this problem.

Modern Spells to Die By

It might seem that baleful modern magic would be dreadfully obvious. Not so! The subtle modern arcana just kills you in ways that you're likely to die by anyway.

Alpine Conclave

Ranger Conclave
Notes from the Nails: did you know that it's been over half a year since we've posted a ranger?

Alpine Conclave

Of all the natural environments that rangers have explored, conquered, and defended, few are more perilous than the great stony peaks of mountains. Danger is never far away in the frigid extremes of the Death Zone, and the rangers who spend their lives in and around such regions are characterized by their fortitude, bravery and athleticism.

Investigation Rules

Comments from the Finger: Fifth edition has a lot of strengths, but investigations are not normally one of them. The finer points of collecting clues, unraveling a mystery, and cracking a case are left almost entirely to the DM. With these rules, we hope to rectify that.

Investigation Rules

When a mystery is afoot or the characters stumble upon an unfamiliar scene, it's time to investigate. An in-depth investigation involves much more than use of the Investigation skill; it demands inquisitive thinking, sharp observation, and careful deduction on the part of the characters, plus a bit of preparation (or practiced improvisation) on the part of the GM.

Jolly Roger

Marshal Banner
Comments from the Finger: It was impossible to listen to the first episode of Hero Club's new season Here There Be Monsters and not think that Captain Drake Muldoon would make a great Marshal. So, in rare form, I wrote an archetype for one of our base classes for the blog.

This subclass is for our Marshal class, available free

Jolly Roger

The skulls and crossbones adorning the Banner of the Jolly Roger need no introduction: it means thieves, brigands, treasure, and adventure on the high seas. Moreover, it means a the strong backs of a crew working in unison, piloting a ship from horizon to horizon, under the command of a fierce captain and their first mate.
