DnD Christmas Games

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 22, 2017, 5:19 PM



With Christmas and new years fast approaching I enjoy to hear people's stories of Christmas/holiday themed D&D games.
One year my group made characters who were recalled children's toys. A violent action figure that used too much profanity, an airhog plane that shot BB's a little too hard, and a medic action figure with working morphine shots. It eventually boiled down to an all-out brawl with the Boxing Day moose who had kidnapped Santa for stealing his spotlight.

This year I've got a new adventure ready to go but I'm going to hold off on the details because I don't want to spoil anything! This year, however, the players in my current game are getting whisked away to a winter wonderland to save Santa once more and will be returning back to their regular world afterward. What sort of fun enchanted Christmas gifts should their character's get? I'm thinking a strand of Christmas lights that works like a silk rope, but lighter and stronger, providing a bonus to climb/athletics checks. Does anyone else have ideas? Also, does anyone else have Christmas themed D&D games/characters that they can share?

Also don't forget to join our Discord channel to hang out and talk with others about all things D&D: discord.gg/24BMPBe

Dndeviants Discord Chatroom

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 15, 2017, 2:11 PM



Hello everyone! I've come out of my cave once more to wish everyone happy holidays, merry Christmas, and all that! Also wanted to remind people that we do have a chatroom/tavern that I created and never told anyone about because I'm a tavern owner who loves to drink alone.

discordapp.com/invite/24BMPBe

If you haven't used Discord before I highly recommend joining, it's a great free service, and I'd love to see people in this community get together to talk about all things D&D, whether it's art, rules, games, advice, books, or whatever! Anything D&D goes.

Ok, so this hit me while checking the new art from Dndeviants, and saw the Long Horn piece (www.deviantart.com/art/longhor…) and the first thing (as a Texan) to pop into my head was cowboys, then the opening to the criminally overlooked cartoon Cowboys of Moo Mesa began in my head, and now all I'm thinking about is playing a minotaur gunslinger that abides to uphold the law... and I have to admit, I kinda squeed.
With that being said, I am now absolutely intrigued by what anybody else has tried, those odd race and class mixes, may they be homebrewed or from the PHB, that resulted in an intriguing and/or ridiculous character that made you hyped to play them. I'm not talking about characters that you played, btw, and built up a wonderful tale of heroism and hilarity. I mean that character concept you made and from day one were jumping for joy to play.
So, I've been juggling this question around in my head, because it was something hinted at at the beginning of the campaign, but I am thinking of, if the situation plays out that way, for a soldier PC to be captured by a mercenary band and given to a main baddy who has been transforming kidnapped citizens into lycantropic monsters to sell as living weapons. Now, the premise is the character, Hoslyn, is trying to chase after her friend, who is being pursued by his own issues, and she is ambushed by a mercenary group that she used to work for (and essentially led to their dismemberment). She is infamous to mercenary group, and thus they try to take her out and sell her to the baddy, seeing that fate worse than death. Now, from what she chooses as far as which animal (which of course she won't realize she picks until she's cursed), she will have a different path to controlling her new form (i.e. werewolf leads to a path of revenge/forgiveness, werebear leads to acceptance/revulsion, etc.). Now, within the story, these are not the perfected, weakness-to-silver-only lycanthrope since they are being produced artificially, so I was thinking of treating it like raging, giving her resistance as well as a new form with different attacks. Now, obviously, she may not have full control over her new form, and may even sporadically change due to triggers, so I was thinking about 1) if this is a good, fun and realistic idea, 2) what sort of wisdom saving throw DC to use (maybe use the "spirit" of the lycanthrope to make opposing roles), and 3) what kind of triggers, if any, to use.

I just joined the group, and I gotta say: only 2 submissions a week? Seriously? Not even 1 a day?

We get quite a few submissions a week. It's mostly to cut down on spam so we don't have tons of deviations flooding watchers/members every day. I'd be open to a poll of increasing the limit. If other members think the limit should be increased, I'm all ears.

Poll is up :)
If I see more combined "increase" votes than "stay the same" I will increase it to whichever got more votes.

I made a little stamp but it's referrring to Spelljammer and I'm not sure if anyone remembers it , seeing it's now unused and possibly defunct, so I was wondering if that's suitable?

They had mindflayers on the box with magically fuelled ships? The little star fish aliens or sand alien races? I'm trying to actually remember without looking it up.😁

I always liked the idea, I had a DM once who wanted to take us all Spelljamming but never got the chance too, that was his ultimate goal for the party, but well  life got in the way and it never happened, it's just that one of my characters is an ex-Spelljammer. Thanks for commenting! nice to see I'm not the only one who remembered it.

It most definitely would! I have never used any spelljammer material myself, but I am at least familiar with it. I'm sending a request to have the stamp in the group for you.

So, I currently have a Thieve's Guild headed by a beholder that the players have met, and I'm wondering (because the players have some connection with the authorities) what sort of jobs he may have for them.

Is he secretly trying to kill them off or are they legitimate jobs? lol

Oh no, they're legitimate. This is the type of guy who, if he wanted them dead, someone would be at the door by the next business day.

Hi there, does anyone know some good resources for learning to draw fantasy armor? I'd also love some kind of guide as to the appearance of the various armours in 5E.

The best resources for drawing fantasy armour is quite naturally real historical armours. They have all the information you could need. Not only what it looks like but also what it is made of, what it is meant to protect from and who would wear it.

The armours from the players handbook are all based on real armour in some way or the other. Even if some of it is based on misconceptions about it.

I found a sheet someone made on the topic that could be a good start for some research. Even if I don't agree with all the opions in it.

Even if you think that historical armours looks boring, studying the real thing will actually help you to introduce fantasy elements to it.

Hey MiddyC, I don't think I can help you there, I'm not really an artist =P.
But you might check with Bergholtz - Their gallery has some really good pieces that look more realistic than others. bergholtz.deviantart.com/galle…
