Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
Homepage in Mystara
Dungeons & Dragons: is a fantasy tabletop role-playing game set in a fantasy universe based on fictional representations of real world cultures with the addition of magic. For the Dungeons & Dragons games that I run, I set them in the Known World of Mystara. This is a setting that has it’s roots in the birth of D&D, is the second created setting, with only Greyhawk being older, and has the second most computer games made for it, second only to Forgotten Realms.
For my campaign based around the Wrath of the Immortals campaign using 5th Edition rules, I have a few different topics that I am working on.
Game Management: for all the rules about managing the game, this includes:
- Annotated Stat Block – that is designed to make the game easier to manage.
- Choosing a New Campaign about various campaigns I was looking to run in 2019.
- Character Creation – To help new and existing players I have this guide to character creation in my WRATH campaign.
- GM’s Luck Roll for how a bonus granted to the players makes it easier for me to run the game.
- Tracking Experience for how I have dealt with experience in different campaigns.
- Running Games over Skype is about how to approach running a RPG through Skype (or other voice services).
Class Builds: for example builds I am doing for various players in my games who were not up to making the build themselves. They will also be good examples for players on how to use the annotated stat block.
