Madness in D&D Straight from the 5th Edition Dungeons Masters Guide
This one has been request several times so far madness in 5th edition dungeons and dragons. Nerdarchy plunges right into the depths of madness that awaiting us in the DMG.

We talk about how to use it as a game master or how it can effect you as a player in the game. No discussion from the new dungeon master’s guide would be complete without talking plot points for any dungeon masters looking for another spin on things.

Has madness creeped into your games? Has anyone had one of their characters driven mad by the wild schemes of their DM?

Nerdarchy tears once more into the DMG of 5e to talk optional rules for 5th edition dungeons and dragons. I didn’t think I’d see this one but here it is- Spell Points.

It’s really nice that wizards of the coast put this one in here. Especially for the 5e D&D sorcerer this pretty awesome it completely fixes what I see as being the sorcerer’s problems in this edition of dungeons and dragons.

Things get a little complex when you start to add multi-class spell casting into the mix. So spell points what you guys think?

Monstrous D&D Player Characters In Your Campaign Setting Yay or Nay

Monstrous D&D Player Characters In Your Campaign Setting Yay or Nay We are talking monstrous character in an adventuring party would you allow it as the dungeon master? Sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t allow races that aren’t in the players handbook.

Right now I’ve got two goblins along side all the the other races in the party. I know some game masters and players hate the idea of non standard races or monster races in their campaign worlds or settings. The question is how do you feel about it?

character alignment

This will be the first part in a nine part series where I get to interview characters of the various alignments in Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder.
