Casted Dungeon Tiles (on the cheap!)

I love crafting things for my Dungeons and Dragons games. From small farm cottages to complex and intricate traps and caverns, this is a very inexpensive hobby. The following photos are from a set of dungeon tiles and walls I have made in the style of Dwarven Forge. These are obviously my own versions, and […]

New Player Friendly 5e Character Sheet

Are you new to Dungeons and Dragons, or do you have new players coming to your table? If a new player looks over the default character sheet for 5th edition, it can be incredibly daunting. All those numbers, all those spaces… Have no fear, and take heart! I have created a new character sheet that […]

Dalai Lama’s words

To take a screenshot on the Pixel 2 XL, or […]

IX Web Hosting – A terrible experience
