From the Ashes

The personal blog of a 20-something Haligonian. Lately I have been very interested in MCU, The Hobbit, and my perennial favourite, cat memes. New into my nerdly mix has been me playing Dungeons and Dragons, and with the new edition that has come out, I will be posting my shenanigans as both a player and a DM.


Ask me anything  

You know you have a crazy D&D party when the debacle of two of the PCs getting the rest of the party arrested on kidnapping and murder charges is among the tamer events of the campaign.

Week 3 of my 5e Dragonlance campaign. Finally figured out a long-term storyline, the Chemosh cultists are trying to take over! That meant I got to throw zombies at my PCs. 5e zombies are a lot of fun for DMs, as their undead fortitude makes them really hard to kill.

In other news, I have decided that if my 3.5 character Penelope survives until Hal-Con, I will commission a drawing of her, since I can’t draw worth anything.

The Asterisks beside some of the backgrounds denote that they are optional builds of the background above them (ie, Spy is a variation on Criminal). Lemme know if any of it doesn’t line up or make sense.

Just came back from a rather entertaining session with my 3.5 D&D peeps. My character, who just has her charisma bonus for diplomacy checks, is starting to convert the citizens of the tiny farming village she’s hiding out in to the Church of Myrkul. This is especially hilarious because she is rather fond of the spell “Flesh Ripper” and is rather open about her glee in killing people.

All in all, a good day.

I’m starting up my own 5e campaign, setting it in the Dragonlance world. However, I have run into the issue that even though I’m starting them at level 1, creating monsters is an issue. I’ve seen algorithms to switch monsters from 3.5 and 4 into 5e, but without an indication of xp amounts.

Any ideas of how to figure this out? Something like a flat rate based on CR?

I got my hands on a 5e PHB yesterday, spent a good chunk of the night creating my character for my friend’s campaign on Saturdays. I decide to create my own mid-week campaign, spend a good chunk of the night helping my friend who is skyping in to create his character.

From everything I’ve seen about this edition so far, it is going to be awesome.

Now to come up with a story idea beyond “newbie mercenaries in Krynn.”
