RPG Interview: Jarin DnD

Random Things: Midderlands Trinkets

As I’m sure you all know by now, I’m a massive fan of the Midderlands setting by Glynn Seal of Monkeyblood Design and have even been privilieged enough to write on a couple of projects for them. One of my other loves in RPGs is the random trinket table from D&D 5E, so it seemed […]

Random Things: Gothic horror trinkets for D&D 5E

These random things articles are designed as quick idea generators for time-pressed GMs who want to inject some additional details into their game, in this article we look at trinkets.

This series of tables are designed to create interesting in-character insults that can be used during a RP session. This post differs from previous ones in the series since it has three […]
