No Update Because Holy Shit A car drove through the pharmacy I work at and and I was trying to balance comic work (including getting the store back online and getting my community outreach back on track) with a looming federal deadline to get covid-19 vaccines billed....

Rules for Crafting Scrolls and Potions for D&D 5e Scrivening The art of putting usable magic to paper, or scrivening, allows adventuring casters to conserve their energies. With a small handful of exceptions, these scrolls are usually not meant for the eyes of...

Opportunity Attacks revisited

Opportunity Attacks revisited

Opportunity attacks in 5e, in my humble opinion, make combat boring. Disengaging to avoid an Attack of Opportunity (AoO) sacrifices your own action but leaves the enemy’s in-tact, making it one of the worst trades in the game. While the mechanic can create tense...

Super Quick Combat Rules

Super Quick Combat Rules

Quick preamble: this is probably system agnostic on some level, but I designed it for 5e. 5e’s design assumes you’re having probably way, way more combat encounters than you actually are, and that you’re playing long enough and quickly enough to resolve those...

Free VTT Tokens

Free VTT Tokens

I have created a repository of about 1200 VTT tokens that you guys can use for free. If you don't want to read more, you can just go to this link and grab them: https://www.patreon.com/posts/54992126 Why Tokens? I like them. During 2020, all of my D&D came to a...

Pathfinder 2e on Foundry vtt

Pathfinder 2e on Foundry vtt

A massive part of the appeal of a VTT for me is having a computer act as my co-DM. It pins my notes directly to relevant rooms, keeps statistics nearby, reminds me of rules I may have forgotten (dynamic lighting is a big one, here; I’m very unlikely to remember that 4 humans are sharing a single torch among them when they split up unless one of their tokens is glowing.) and even dealing with some of the pesky math for me.

Monster Cards

Monster Cards

Snapback Wizards, Lizards, and Wizard Lizards use the common Spapback as a sort of guard dog. They're not meant to kill people, but they can. Rather, they're meant to hold intruders in place until someone in charge can come deal with them. Bahk-bock These tiny fey...

The Glass Wyrm

The Glass Wyrm

This guy was inspired by Guy's channel on Youtube - "How To Be A Great GM." He recently released an absolutely magical video describing a glass dragon. Zach and I loved the idea and ran with it. Watch his video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGpIkxc_vxw&t=852s...

Death House Minis

Death House Minis

Hey everyone! No comic this week. We were pushing to get our first splat book of the year out. This is up on Patreon already for all of our supporters (at any level) as a thank-you for your consistent support. You guys help us a ton, and motivate us to branch out with...

Adventure Minis – Set 1 Starter Kit

Adventure Minis – Set 1 Starter Kit

Head over to our Shop and take a look at these bad boys. We've busted our humps getting this collection together, but we think it's worth it. It's also on the DM's Guild if you prefer to get your stuff there. If you are part of The Crew on Patreon, you already have...

Nightingale

Nightingale

The polls are still open about what happens next in the comic. In the meantime, Zach is catching up on Kickstarter art, and I'll be sharing more of The Arcana Check. This week, we've got the Nightingale, a caster-rogue that ferrets out evil. Nightingales have bonuses...

Power Chord: Kill

Zach is under the weather and the page we're working on has some structural problems that just aren't getting solved today, so I'm going to go ahead and platform this week's Arcana Check, and open that puppy up to the public. I am especially fond of this one, and I'm...
