Tyranny of Dragons Session 7 – Wagons Roll

Tyranny of Dragons was the first full D&D 5e campaign I ran, starting back in 2015.

Scarlet Citadel Session 2 – A Daring Rescue

Last week, we continued with my Scarlet Citadel campaign with the second full session. Instead of writing up what happened in a “story hour” format, these posts are going to be my reflections on the game as a DM.

Empire of the Ghouls Session 26 – The Ghul King’s Catacomb

In our 26th session, we were back around the gaming table in person for the first time since February 2020!

Here’sContinue reading “Empire of the Ghouls Session 26 – The Ghul King’s Catacomb”
