Now on Dungeon Masters Guild: The Arrow Knight

Continuing my foray into the world of tabletop RPG design, I’ve recently published my first rules supplement on the Dungeon Masters Guild.

The Arrow Knight is a bundle of new content intended to make archery a valid playstyle for paladins in Fifth Edition. It includes a set of variant rules for the base paladin class, a new subclass suitable for play with both Arrow Knights and traditional paladins, and three new magic items themed around paladins and archery.

This is loosely based on my own paladin, whom I’ve been playing almost every week since I started playing D&D. I tweaked the paladin rules to make her work as an archer, and this is an expanded and polished version of the homebrew I made for her. One of the magic items in this bundle, Crowsight, is her bow. The campaign she’s a part of is finally winding down, so putting together this bundle was in part a way of saying goodbye to her.

Song of the Month: Everlast, What It’s Like

Earlier in the month I talked about my homebrew RPG, Wyrd Street. In it, I said that I felt like Wyrd Street is essentially the song What It’s Like by Everlast translated into a fantasy RPG. That also gives me an easy choice for June’s Song of the Month.

In the unlikely event anyone still cares in the current climate, fair warning there are NSFW lyrics ahead.

This song isn’t exactly the usual style of music I go for, but it’s nice for what it is, and I’ve always admired the message expressed through its lyrics. I think right now especially we could all do to put ourselves in the shoes of those less fortunate than us, but really this is a message that will always be relevant.
