  • I Threw A Book And That Was It

    I will try to keep this story brief enough, and I won't go into mechanical details. This was Pathfinder with a lot of third party and homebrew content, and we ignored or made up just about everything. What matters is who we were and what happened. My character was a man who had been infected...
  • Wholesome Geoff, Too Good For This World, Too Pure

    Well hello there. My name is Geoff, Geoff Candleglow. That is not the name I was born with, but it's the name I have chosen. I was born in the land of Barovia so very long ago, a dusk elf with dark hair, dark eyes and ashen skin. Not very striking in appearance, but pleasant....

  • The Valentine’s Day Massacre

    So this story is from a year or so ago, so I apologize for not remembering a lot of the details… A few key points to note before I dive fully into the story: * 3 members of our party (that I know/knew of) had dealt with varying levels of sexual harassment/assault in their lives.  * the...

    Makoa, The Bear Wrestler

    Makoa looked down at the new scars to add to his collection and grins. “We are all made of scars.”, he says dropping back into his stance. Years he has trained to make himself a weapon, to not need the careless trappings of his ilk. Axes and blades are a lesser form of combat in...
  • The Tale of the Confused Archer and His Weeb Party.

    Every year, our county has a weeklong fair. Boyscouts from the various troops in the county volunteer and clean up trash while camping on the fairgrounds. Us being boy scouts, we will spend the day playing magic, cards, and most importantly dungeons and dragons. This year, my close friend Jonah wanted to do a one-shot...

    Sea Turtle nearly wipes party

    (Hello so this is my first time sending something like this. Hope I did it right and that you guys enjoy the story)     A few months before this story took place I was extremely new to D&D. I had a burning desire to become a good DM and to fit my world I...
  • How the old party came together to solve one more thread.

    How the old party came together to solve one more thread. So, a few years ago I actually got to finish a semi-long campaign I home-brewed (just shy of 8 month of weekly long sessions). This a story for another day but I do feel like I need to shed some light on it before...

    How I killed my entire party, including myself

    Session 0: We're a group of 4 people. We each have our own preferences in classes and roleplay, so we stick with the usual: Friend 1 usually plays a magic user, but after being annoyed by the lack of hitpoints of his previous characters, decides to go Aasimar Paladin (which he decides should be a...
  • Most chaotic and epic battle i didn’t plan to run.

    Quick background. I run a homebrew dnd 5e game with 3 friends and have been playing about 10 months now. We generally follow the rules but I generally lax them if I feel like it will make the game more fun. There was Renarto (paladin) loki (warlock) and Escanor (fighter). Renarto is a knight of...

    The Bard and the Horde

    A lot of people use their bard characters' high charisma to win the hands of maidens and work their way into friendships with higher powers. As much as I respect these players' rights to play how they have fun in a game, I see this as a waste. The concept of a bard for me...

    The Rebirth Algorithm book 2 part 1

    This is book 2 of The Rebirth Algorithm. If you have yet to do so, I suggest checking out book 1 which I have posted here in several parts. Book 2 is really dark, in my opinion its too dark for this site, so I will instead be giving a summary of book 2. If...

    Phantasmal Force saves the day

    This was easily the most intense session I’ve ever played in D&D, but was so worth it. To set the scene, the campaign is in a post-apocalypse world where all the water has formed a massive ocean in the sky due a supernatural event called The Rising, and most settlements exist around Columns of water...
