[Book Recommendation] Legends & Lattes by Travis Baldree

This book was recommended to me and I'm going to grab it through the Libby app. It was mentioned like this: Samone and his coffee plants...

Ooh, that's a memory I'd not retrieved in a while. First here's the book.

My stepbrother played in a Dark Sun campaign that I ran back in the day, and he played a Halfling Druid/Thief that had a home base just east of Gulg at a small hidden hot-spring oasis. At some point, he tried coffee and decided to grow his own along with other food for himself. This book mentioned above is about an adventurer who retired and opened a coffee shop.

I've queued this up from my library, but I may purchase a copy if I like it enough. Check it out for yourself!

Wandering Around Droaam

My characters in Eberron are spending an extended amount of time hanging out in Droaam. Specifically they are in the realm of Kethelrax the Cunning. For various inspiration reasons, I've been gathering notes for Droaam overland travel, the different warlord factions and an extended Kobold fortress.

Specific to the campaign I nicknamed Iron & Fire, I haven't updated the listing of characters.

There is much that I could share about their adventures so far (up to 6th level) and so much more to come, but I'll end here for now.

In Praise of the Dungeon Masters Guild

I can't say enough good things about the Dungeon Masters Guild and the other sites in the family of Tons of free and paid resources, books and adventures. In fact, as of today I'm looking to add them as affiliate links to this blog. Here's a quick test:

If that worked, something should appear above this paragraph with an updated feed of reviews from their site. Edit: This does not appear to be working, so I'll have to research why later. In the meantime, have a banner!

Merry Christmas - Have Some... Chaos!

Here are some Xmas gifts that GMs can gift to their players (in game). These are all from Brian Patterson's webcomic, which you should check out start to finish at some point. His art style is great and his writing shines. For a couple years around Christmastime, he would do an interlude comic with a random certificate or item list to gift your players. I've saved all of them that I could find here for my own reference. Enjoy!

It's always festive to add a little chaos into the game. One of the gifts I received this year was a two pack of the Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates. So... that's going to have to make an in-game appearance at some point. *mad scientist laughter* / r / dnd / r / rpg
