Photo Friday: A Musket and a Brace of Pistols

You should definitely check out the history behind this image, brought to you today by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’m particularly interested in this one because of some work I’ve recently done over in Tribality, as well as how seamlessly this image fits into Aurikesh. (Yes, I know that […]


D&D 5e: Five New Genasi Subraces 5

Posting over in Twitter about 4e, I happened to recall that 4e genasi had a lot more varieties than 5e genasi do. Their metagame position is also quite different; 4e genasi have unique offensive powers, while 5e genasi have spells that might be offense or utility, and are substantially varied […]

D&D 5e: Magic Items in a Wizard’s Lab 2

I’ve been reading a bunch of Ars Magica 5th Edition lately – make sure you check out Samhaine’s Rules Summary posts – and it got me thinking about the interesting Stuff in a wizard’s laboratory.
