Making D&D Memes and GIFs Round-Up Vol. 5

Another week of D&D and RPG memes is here. This week’s dose of D&D and RPG humor is a little late due to a nerdy vacation to hang out with friend and streamer Mike Hunt of UnMadeGaming on Twitch and YouTube. It was a fun mini-vacation where I got to run a Zoo Mafia RPG one shot. If you missed last week’s round up you can see it here. We managed to get a couple of non-Dungeons & Dragons memes into the mix time around. Also the round-up is a little light on the GIFs this time around. Unfortunately next week will be an all round light round up with me having been away for most of the week. Thent we’ll be back on track.

Conflict Constructs is the Battle Bots of D&D

I keep looking for way to add more magic and more non-standard fantasy into my D&D games. I feel the way the game is going is to keep increasing the magic in the world and I am on board for this. We have the normalization of the construct-like race in the warforged (and now true construct with the autognome). Baldur’s Gate: Decent into Avernus gave us magical hell vehicles usable by individuals or the whole party. Nerdarchist Dave even began a campaign with some minor conversions to use them in a post apocalyptic setting. I am sure there are other examples as well if you look at other third party stuff. But why stop there?

Your Imagination is the Only Limit of RPG Stories

One appreciation both RPG and technology enthusiasts share is for customization. We love options for helping us create the experiences we enjoy the most. Brave Alice Studios understands this and put their passion into creating a platform designed specifically with your stories in mind. RPG Stories is a 3D Virtual Tabletop containing a massive world builder with models and assets for medieval fantasy, modern horror and science fiction (so basically anything at all). For a non-savvy technological person like myself the most appealing option is Auto Mode for users who like to create content easily and fast, but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Let’s get into it.

Explore the Darkest Shadows of D&D at Your Peril

The other day I was lying in bed before falling asleep and an idea jumped into my brain. It is a weird concept but nothing groundbreaking — a dark elf riding a displacer beast. If you know me you know displacer beasts are my favorite D&D monster, so much so I think it will be my next tattoo. My imagination cascaded from there. I I jumped from a dark elf on a displacer beast to what can I do with shadows? Focusing on the “dark” in dark elf lead me to think about shadow powers, which lead to the shadow monster and the terror they can elicit.

Zombies Ate My Brains And I Like It

For the past couple of months I’ve been on a major zombie binge. It started with rewatching The Walking Dead before catching up on the most recent season. In the midst of binge watching I wondered about any cool zombie videos games out there and of course tabletop roleplaying games. I found both. I’ve been thinking a lot about the zombie survival genre lately, making my brains a tasty treat for the shambling undead. Let’s get into it.

Follow the Rule of Chaos as Agents of Hell in Your D&D Game

Are we the baddies? You’ll have to determine this for yourself and you’ll have to weigh the odds when your Dungeons & Dragons adventurers follow the Rule of Chaos. This 5E compatible game plunges players into the role of demons compelled to do the bidding of those who summon them. But there’s always loopholes to exploit, providing windows of opportunity for clever demons to enact their own designs. Stealing artifacts, haggling for mortal souls, starting a cult — who knows what an enterprising demon might accomplish?

Making D&D Memes and GIFs Round-Up Vol. 4

This week of D&D memes, RPG memes and D&D GIFs is here. This week four of Making D&D Memes and GIFs Round-Up. This week I’ve explored themes like animals with weapons, the heavy metal bands GWAR and Nekrogoblikon, Goblin King and the Firefly TV show. These D&D memes originally appeared on Nerdarchy the Facebook page. I’m trying to dabble a little more into memeing other roleplaying games.
