  • Our DM and his annoying chase scenes!

    I playing a 5e game with 4 other friends, and it was my first campaign with an actual group, instead of just playing with one person! It was run by our DM, and I will call him John for this. John was running a game for the four of us, with the module, Dragon Heist!...
  • How Aster the Joke Sorceror Became a Legendary Savior

    This story comes at the end of a campaign played in D&D 5E, a modern recreation of the Isle of the Sea Drake campaign from 1E. Our party was a rather odd bunch, and not necessarily for the better, composed of a chaotic neutral kenku bard named Cello, a true neutral homonculus artificer named Fred,...

    The Story of Dr. Poxil, the Mad Alchemist

    Somewhere within the woods sits a gaunt figure in a dark, stained smock. His gangly form is hunched over a low flame, as he slowly and methodically stirs a small cauldron of bubbling liquid. He brings a spoonful of the foul-smelling brew to his pale, cracked lips and slurps it loudly. “Hmm, almost…” He says...

    Returning Hero

    Long long ago in a time when the heavens split and demons poured into the lands of the living, during the last great demon inclusion, a noble knight had been taking a tour of his lord’s lands only to see the burning hordes of unspeakable evils spilling through the torn wound in the skies. The...
  • When I Was Left to Die; A Betrayal from the Party

    To preface this story, everyone involved in this story and I are still good friends and play many tabletop games together, so don’t get too upset with the story. I had just started college and found myself in a group of people that were right up my alley, gamers and tabletop players. We played all...
  • That Time I Shut the Annoying Guy Up

    Back when 4th edition was still the latest version, my friends and I participated in a great homebrew campaign. This story only really involves four of our group’s members:  Markus, the human artificer with a sense of humor; Gogol, the goliath warden, naive but a good heart; Dalabrac, halfling rogue played by aforementioned annoying guy;...
  • The Paladin Who Wished She was the DM

    I was originally going to post this on a video about a “Main Character Horror Story” but decided it might fit better here.  We had a player start around Nov in our group a year ago, and she started off in the group strong. She was a notetaker (Everyone else is new so they’re learning),...
  • My first Dungeons and Dragons game.

    Disclaimer: The names of all the spells, abilities, etc. probably aren’t the real names, just the best I can remember them. I’ve always kind of wanted to play Dungeons and Dragons. It’s interested me ever since middle school. But sometimes, even if something interests you, you never get around to trying it. That’s just the...
  • The best DnD Con Job ever

    I’m a first time DM with a homebrew campaign where I am hosting for my father, a long time DnD player, and his friends.  Homebrew is a bit of a challenge I will admit, but I have been able to come up with enough on the fly stuff that it’s kept it from getting totally...

    My character, Veil, is a changeling rogue with a changeling father and an air genasi mother. She has an older changeling sister called Shade that we’ll get to in a bit. Her backstory is that she was adopted by the noble Renoux family and befriended their daughter Valerie. She grew up without a mother and...
  • How the Big Blue Naked Druggie Outwitted a Dragon

    This should be short. The setup: Me, a DMPC Paladin because my character was not ready yet, a Rogue, a Barbarian, and our hero, the Blue Genasi Wizard. To sum it up, yes he is blue. Yes, he was a Genasi. Yes, he was a Wizard. Yes, he never met a plant he did not...
