“Terror in the Depths” available now at the DMs Guild!

terror coverIf you’re into Dungeons & Dragons 5e, be sure and check out my third offering with the Dungeon Masters Guild, a second-tier sandbox adventure called “Terror in the Depths.”

The town of Portsmouth bears a terrible secret. A powerful cult has set its eye on the party of adventurers that have stumbled upon its mystery. Can the party free Portsmouth of the cult’s oppressive darkness—and will they face the focus of the cult’s sinister adoration? 

This is a sandbox-style adventure for a 6th to 9th level party.  It can be used in any setting or campaign.

It’s set up to “pay what you want,” so feel free to throw me a buck or not. Either way, try it out and post a review! I want to write better adventures and constructive feedback really helps.

“In the Serpent’s Gaze” Available at the the DM’s Guild

My latest module for D&D 5e, “In the Serpent’s Gaze,” is now available at the DM’s Guild website. It’s “pay what you want,” so feel free to show me some love however you feel and download the .pdf. It’s geared toward a party of 3rd to 5th level adventurers. It’s set in the Verdant Jungle where the outpost of Crooktree is dealing with mysterious disappearances. Are they connected to the raids from the nearby lizardfolk or is there something more sinister afoot? Anyway, feel free to check it out!

“Rise of the Crimson Prince” Available on DMs Guild

So, I’ve been toying with the guidelines at the DM’s Guild, a website devoted to fan-created content for D&D, and have created a module for introductory characters of 1st level entitled “Rise of the Crimson Prince.” I think it’s a great way to introduce characters to a campaign and provides an interesting background in which to do it.

Be sure and check out the DM’s Guild for “The Rise of the Crimson Prince.” Pay what you want for the adventure and give it a shot. Feel free to let me know what you think!

You May Call Me M’Lord…

Logo_2So in my travels on the Interwebz, I came across the Twitter account for someone called “The DnD Grandma.” I loved the positivity displayed on the feed as well as the impetus behind it. You see, the feed is maintained by Vinnie Pontillo and allows us to follow the adventures of his mother (who’s in her 70s) as she plays in their home Dungeons & Dragons game, as well as the rest of his family. Which is AWESOME!

The page inspired me so much that I asked my family to play with me…and they said yes! So now I have a semi-regular game with my mom, stepdad, wife, and brother. It’s going great! They’ve really caught on to the roleplaying aspects and the fun of the game. I’m so pleased to have them come and enjoy something that is a big part of my life.

Vinnie started a Patreon to fund a ongoing podcast of his family’s adventures. I feel like I owe them for inspiring me to take the step to include my family in my nerdy hobby. So I contributed. In return, I got to have an NPC (non-player character) named after me. And now, in their family game, I’m Shedrick Pittman, Lord of Commerce. How awesome is that?!!

Anyway, be sure and check out their podcast and their Patreon. They are a great bunch of folks and represent the hobby in such a positive way. Get hooked like I did!

This weekend (September 21-23) is FenCon in Irving, Texas. I’ll be running 7th Sea (2e) in the gaming room from 1pm to 9pm on Saturday. You can also see me helping out the wonderful folks at Meeple Solutions who are running the gaming area this year.

FenCon is one of my favorite cons in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. I’ve been an attendee for close to ten years now and look forward to it every year. This year is extra special because I get to work closely with Meeple Solutions.

Meeple Solutions is dedicated to building community through gaming–a cause I definitely believe in. They also work to raise money for Extra Life; every year, gamers around the world unite in a day of play to support their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. The 170 member hospitals provide 32 million treatments each year to kids across the U.S. and Canada. Donations stay local to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and charitable care.

You can join Meeple Solutions and/or donate to Extra Life through their team page at
