The Shadow Blade: d4 #100

7/11/2022
Our D&D 5e build this week is another attempt to build a character around a particular weapon. Only this time, the weapon also happens to be my favorite spell in the game :).

The Thunderball: d4 #99

6/29/2022
Our D&D 5e character build this week is an attempt to do something I've never really done before: try to build a character that excels at both Sustained *and* Burst/Nova damage. How'd I do?

The Shaman: d4 #98

6/27/2022
For our D&D 5e build this week, we're attempting to do the impossible: build a character who is mostly a Barbarian, but who fills the Support role. And no, I don't mean Tank!

The Bard Tank: d4 #97

The Battlefield Commander: d4 #93

5/23/2022
Our D&D 5e character build this week is a Support Character, but not what most of us typically think of when we think Support: we're not really a healer, but a Squad Leader, directing, strengthening, and bolstering our allies on the Battlefield.

The Shepherd Druid: d4 #92

5/16/2022
Our D&D 5e character build this week is me finally caving in to the demands to build a character who can make the best use of the Conjure Animals spell. Is it really as overpowered as some think?
