Hi y'all! So I've been DMing just for about a year now, after a hiatus of nearly 20 years. Back when I used to play, I was a player never a DM and getting into crafting and leading sessions has become my absolute favorite thing 🤟🤟🤟🤟🤟 it took me a long time to become a DM and I'm totally, completely, 100% hooked.
Everything I've been running has mostly been made up by me, pure homebrew. A little while ago I started experiencing some burn out so I began using Tactical Maps Adventurers Atlas for short quick mini adventures, adapting them for my settings and characters. It's been super helpful and really fun to drop in cool environments with their own unique challenges. I've also used bits and pieces of the mapped encounters from the Lost Mine of Phendelver and Dragons of Icespire Peak. Oh and my library of goods from the DM Guild has been steadily growing! I've been very very tentatively exploring some of the DM Guild stuff so far, there's so much incredible content on there! (Currently using Onigashima by Kyle Spencer as a setting for a short 4 session side quest! Super cool, very fun, and beautiful Japanese folklore inspired setting.)
I've heard a lot about the Book of Challenges: Dungeon Room, Puzzles and Traps, which looks awesome! I play 5e and it seem that it wouldn't be very complicated to adapt the book from 3e.
What are some of your favorite "drop in" adventures or mini/side quests?
What about full pre-written adventures that are good for 3 to 4 sessions? Or longer?
Does anyone have any strong recommendations for encounter compendiums and battle maps with scenarios?
Would your recs of WOTC published material as well as your faves from DM Guild! Love to support the artists on there so please shout some folks worth checking out! Thank you!!
I'm trying to build up my skills at being able to follow pre-written material, instead of just my own stuff, in preparation for Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. My homebrew includes the Sword Coast in it – specifically so that we can hop back and forth – so I've been really looking forward to playing this newest frosty adventure. One of my PCs is a Goliath and we've been talking for a while about taking a trip up north, back to his homelands, so Frostmaiden seems like it would be absolutely perfect and super rad. Can you please help me get ready for my trip up North? 🙏😄🥶
Thanks, rad humans!
- I’m a very light on rules DM trying to DM for a DM that’s very stuck into the rules. What do I do?
- Homebrew setting vs homebrew mechanics
- DM’s with parties willing to volunteer help playtest a module i am writing.
