D&D Ranger 5e – Best Race in 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons

On today’s video transcription post we’ve got a special guest, Kraul the Lizardfolk. He’s dropped by to give us a little help talking about the D&D ranger. Kraul has appeared on several of our video now. He seems to be a bit of a crowd favorite.

3 Most Broken Dungeons and Dragons Combos| D&D Discussions

We’ve decided to take some of our old videos, give their thumbnails a facelift, and why not transcribe them here on the website. This video 3 Most Broken Dungeons and Dragons Combos comes directly from our D&D Discussion playlist. It is currently our most popular D&D video on the channel with the most views.

D&D Feats 5e – Multiclassing without Multiclassing

Today’s video and transcription is all about multiclassing without actually taking levels in another character class. Instead we use feats from 5e D&D to give us that feel of having multiclassing levels.

D&D Death From Real World Threats- Fire Coral, Jumping Cholla, and Sandbox Tree

Todays topic is taking real world threats and natural hazards and turning them into things to use in your D&D game. We’ve aptly named the video and article D&D Death from Real world Threats. We may turn this into a regular series of converting crazy real world critters, hazards, and phenomenons for your D&D game.

Sometimes the real world can be more bizarre and scary than fantasy worlds of Dungeons and Dragons.

D&D Druid 5E — Best Race in Fifth Edition Dungeons & Dragons

Fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons has given several character classes a facelift. The druid among them. Two of the druid hallmark abilities are spellcasting and wildshape. The D&D druid 5E gets wildshape earlier than most of the editions of D&D if not all. My first 1E D&D character was a druid. You could say I am a bit fond of druids throughout all of the editions of D&D. You might be wondering what all of that has to do with the title of this article. I’ll get to that on the other side of our best race to play character classes druid video.

5 Go to D&D Wizard Spells for Tier 1 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons

We have the 5 Got to D&D Wizard Spells as well a transcription from the video. Quick bit of house keeping we goofed and accidently included 3rd level spells on our list. We realized it after we put the spell up oops. We still really like Fireball and Haste we just listed them in the wrong tier. Our apologies.

Immersive Battle Maps for Tabletop Roleplaying Games

Need D&D Battle Maps for Your Game

Since the inception of D&D maps have played a huge part of the game. But that makes a lot of sense when you consider the origin of the game. Since Dungeons & Dragons was born of Chain Mail, a tabletop miniatures war game. From the earliest day of Dungeons & Dragons it has been played both in the theater of the mind as well as with D&D battle maps and miniatures. Theater of the mind is a style of play that doesn’t use miniatures or battle maps. Many tabletop roleplaying games have come along since the beginning of Dungeons & Dragons. Some favor theater of the mind while others lean heavily towards using minis and battle maps.

D&D Monsters — Kobolds Mounted for Combat

Kobolds are insanely popular D&D monsters. So much so that players want to adopt them as henchmen and followers. Others want to play them as player character races. They’ve gone under bit of a transformation from the kobold from Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. In 3.5 D&D they went from being a combination of rat, dog, and lizard to little dragonmen claiming to be the descendants of dragons. Not too long ago we did a video pairing up D&D monsters. Kobolds mounted on other monsters seemed like a lot of fun. We even put together a pay what you want product over on the Dungeon Masters Guild — Kobold Cavalry Encounter. Grab it here.
