Treasures Await! Adventurers: Choose Your Own Reward

Longtime visitors here to Nerdarchy the Website may remember the very first Out of the Box encounter posted right here about three and a half years ago. Mike Gould, the writer, remains an invaluable resource for the Nerdarchy community and we were so excited to launch our very first Kickstarter with Mike’s work in the spotlight. We set out to make a hardcover book of our own, and because of the support and encouragement from the RPG community we do so much more. We met all our stretch goals, including several that evolved because of the Kickstarter’s remarkable fundraising. And now the Out of the Box Pledge Manager is live, so backers can complete their surveys and anyone who missed the Kickstarter can make late pledges. This is a perfect opportunity to get your copy of the Out of the Box book, our entire digital library and more at special pricing — not to mention badges for Nerdarchy the Convention in 2020.

D&D Ideas — Tools

Welcome once again to the weekly Nerdarchy Newsletter. This week in the live chat we talked about using tools in D&D and ways a Dungeon Master might allow players to use them in a game. Moreso we delved into whose responsibility it is to make tool more relevant during gameplay.

D&D Ideas — Turn Anything Into an Adventure

Welcome once again to the weekly Nerdarchy Newsletter. This week’s topic, turning anything into a D&D adventure, was inspired by the Quest Givers and their Kickstarter The North Road, a system agnostic adventure. You can check it out here. We even had DM Scotty on for our weekly live chat.

D&D Treasure

D&D Ideas — Treasure

Welcome once again to the weekly Nerdarchy Newsletter. Apologies this week is coming a bit late. We’ve had a bunch of behind the scenes stuff going on of late. But on a personal note my wife (Nerdarchist Ted’s sister) had hip replacement this week so we’ve had some extra things on our plate. You’ll be getting two newsletters kind of closer together than usual because of that. You can get the Nerdarchy Newsletter delivered to your inbox each week, along with updates and info on how to game with Nerdarchy, by signing up here. Now on to it. This week is all about that sweet, sweet D&D treasure.

We got two new subclasses to take a look at and inspire our games.

Getting Gritty With It! Explore the Grim and Dark with Grim Hollow

Hope is forgotten, the gods are absent, and civilization desperately struggles for survival in a harsh, foreboding world. Adventures in a world like this are fraught with peril on every front, and taught with tension. Grim dark fantasy entices and appeals to funny-shaped dice enthusiasts the world over, and Grim Hollow, currently live on Kickstarter, embraces these themes to create a campaign guide designed for Game Masters and players of the fifth edition of the world’s greatest roleplaying game alike. This grim dark campaign setting guide checks the boxes I look for in a product like this. Here’s why.

D&D Ideas — Three Pillars of 5E D&D

Welcome once again to the weekly Nerdarchy Newsletter. This week we’ve got the Three Pillars of 5E D&D. We decided to break things up a little differently than usual. There are three of us and three different pillars so we each took one. Before we jump into it I feel morally obligated to mention Nerdarchy’s Out of the Box: Encounters for 5th Edition Kickstarter.

D&D Ideas — Using Monsters

Welcome once again to the weekly Nerdarchy Newsletter. This week it’s all about using monsters. Since we are talking about using monsters I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention our Kickstarter — Out of the Box: Encounters for 5th Edition. There are great ideas for using for monsters in there. It’s fully funded and blasting through the stretch goals. It started out as 30 encounters. We are now up to 55! Take a look and discover the pledge level that’s right for you on the Kickstarter page.
