Mega Dungeon Crawl to End All 5e D&D Dungeon Crawls

We were contacted by the folks over at Hammerdog Games about their latest KickStart:

The Grande Temple of Jing – 5th Edition: The DUNGEON CRAWL THAT RULES THEM ALL

Now updated for 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons. And with exclusive miniatures! This thing is massive with huge amounts of talent on this project – Danny O’Neill with Jonathan Tweet, Monte Cook, Skip Williams, Ed Greenwood, Jim Ward, Chris Pramas, Stan!, Grimtooth, Matt Mayhew, Dave Gross, Kevin Andrew Murphy and more.

This is the 5e D&D version of the Pathfinder original. With minis, character maps, and some improvements to the book. It’ll still work with Pathfinder, but the focus is on 5e. Did I mention this thing is massive? 65 themed dungeon levels in a book that is 500+ pages. There are levels that are appropriate for levels from 1st all the way up to 20th.

Our series continues for what D&D character classes should play for your race. This time we will look at the halfling for 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons.

D&D Wizards and Their Words

We recently did a video about fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons called: D&D Wizard 5E — 3 Deadly Spells Verbal Components Only. In making that video we created a list from the wizard spell list of spells that only require only verbal spellcasting components. It occurred to me we haven’t put the list anywhere for the folks who might be interested the rest of the spells we came up with. It also occurred to me we’ve go the perfect place to put that list, with us having a website and all. D&D wizards have at least one spell at every level they can cast only using verbal spell components. This opens up a lot of possibilities. For instance in fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons a wizard could focus only on verbal spellcasting components.

Bad Dungeon Master Stories

Bad Dungeon Master, Bad D&D Player, or Other

DMing ain’t easy Yo! Maybe your Dungeon Master could use a little slack, maybe they are a problem player, or could it be they just had an off day. 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons has become super popular and we could use as many Dungeon Masters as possible. Part of that is making the idea of being a Dungeon Master welcoming.
