    How a Kenku child made us all war criminals

    We were starting my friend Ewan’s first campaign, placed in the setting of the campaign of our other friend. Both DMs had worked together to fit the story into the world, and we were all eager to begin. The party consists of Teris (male Firbolg barbarian), Jericho (male Aasimar paladin), Feron (male Half-Elf druid), Jean...

    How our dwarven cleric BBEG spy became a living sword

    I'm a proud DM of a group of 4 players. We starting D&Ding in february 2019 at work. We were all colleagues back in the day, spending our 1 hour lunchbreaks in my fantasy realm.  In this campaign one of my players came up with an interesting backstory for his Dwarven Forge Cleric, named Gurum. He...

    Chuu, the Lawful good pure of heart warlock

    Years back, a local tribe of lizard folk were beginning to worry and enter into conflict with various towns encroaching upon their swamp and hunting grounds. Any attempt they made to ask the groups to leave was met with violence from the town’s folk.  To be fair, this tribe had been relatively hostile and was...

    Tale of tents and Bugbears

    In a campaign I am still playing in, we were sent on a diplomatic mission to another country, it’s not too important what we were doing, but when a new player joined, a bugbear fighter I think, he rubbed my character the wrong way a little. I woke up late but got into the voice...

    The Path to hell.

    I’ve always looked at the lore of dnd and been happy to use it as a guideline, not alway concrete setting laws. I keep most of the gods, and certain groups within, but usually I just make my own world with the building blocks provided. But one thing in dnd I love and will never...

    Qui the Bard

    Qui's story starts like many, a simple lonely child on the streets. It is unclear who her parents were or why she was on the street, she never once even questioned it. They simply were never in the equation, no tragic avenging their deaths, no seeking them out for answers as to why they would...
  • A Note on Morality: How an Assassin shook a Paladin’s worldview with a single phrase.

    Valeria (LG Aasimar Paladin) Inanis (LE Human Rouge/Assassin) Pinn (CN Half-Elf Bard) Arcto (N Human Wizard) Inanis’ statement hung in the air like a troglodyte’s stench. One sentence. A simple statement. That’s all it took. “What did you say?!” Valeria said through gritted teeth, her golden eyes flashing dangerously. By this point, everyone in the...
  • How the Amino tested my patience with the DnD community

    I won’t be using names of people or actual communities, but I won’t lie, it’s not hard to find if you try. I had been running into a LOT of trouble trying to get my hands on a DnD game, it was just one endless BS train after another. That is until I found the...
  • Why I overpower my players

    I sometimes get people telling me that my campaigns are too easy or they are set up to make the players too powerful. I often give players the ability to reroll their stats multiple times, and the option to change any negative modifiers to 0 by increasing that stat to 10. I've had many players...
  • Found out pretty quick.

    So… my story starts with the most God aweful problem that I am sure many of us have faced in the past and probably are currently facing. No group to play with. Names and some mild events have been changed to hide identities and make things just a little smoother. As I am an adult,...

    The Only Campaign I’ve Ever Rage Quit

    I would like to preface this; I am still good friends with the DM of this campaign, he is a regular player in my campaign and a good friend of mine. But this campaign was easily his lowest point as a DM. I have never quit a campaign before for any reason other than scheduling....

    Why a DM should NEVER try to “win” D&D

    I’ve been playing and DMing D&D pretty much my whole life, being raised by a first generation DM and overall having it be part of my life since I was a kid. A lesson I learned as DM is above all else, regardless of the content of the game, to make sure your players are...
  • How One Line Destroyed a D&D Veteran

    I had never played D&D before, but a friend of mine had access to a ton of source material on D&DBeyond, and shared it with me and some friends, letting us make characters for fun. It was enjoyable, but then the characters would just sit around doing nothing, so I finally asked if I could...

    What Dungeons & Dragons Class Are You?

    Dungeons & Dragons has been the mainstay of role-playing for a very long time. The game was an instant sensation and it makes 100% sense to call it the best Table-Top RPG game of all time. As we know there are 12 basic classes in Dungeons & Dragons, it is quite difficult to spot a...

  • All time worst invite

    Ok, so a few months ago, I had truly gotten the thirst to play DnD and was downright desperate. I kid you not, I wrote up five characters, played each one and DMed the whole adventure, rolling the dice and writing in character every interaction to post almost in story format on an app called...
  • The Watcher in the Woods

    I watched from the cover of the trees as the elves passed me by along the dirt road. They were traveling with a small horse-drawn cart towards the nearby settlement. A small town of theirs, deep inside the forest, where no men or orcs ever visited. It was a family of them, I think. A...

    DnD Story #120 – A Thorough Investigation

    (Spoilers for Curse of Strahd Below) So, I’m DMing a game of CoS, and my party finally makes it to Barovia. They’re spooked and wandering through this ghost town, wondering where the hell they ended up. “You notice a pair of children crying in the middle of the street.” The group approaches and questions them....
  • How we saved a bunch of kids than blew up their village

    Me and my Buddies have been playing in the same campaign for over 2 years now. Our party, at the time of this story, consisted of Ken the monk, Nicholi the Barbarian, John the bard/sorceror gunslinger which we took to calling a spellslinger, Bragon the Arcane Archer, and Vebril the Spellcasting Rogue. We had just...
