Ascended Tiefling Subrace

The other day, the magically talented Critical Bard pointed out that if there are fallen aasimar shouldn’t there be some sort of celestial tiefling subrace? Well, who are we to not deliver on the possibility, especially as tieflings are one of the favored race options at the Mage College. So we present to you the Ascended Tiefling subrace, following the pattern of the Tome of Foes … Continue reading Ascended Tiefling Subrace

Sacred Oath: Oath of Nightsong

Today on the Mage College, we introduce a Sacred Oath designed specifically for followers of one of my favorite Forgotten Realms, Eilistraee. Though, to be more specific this Sacred Oath was created for my favorite follower of Eilistraee, Leoni, or as many know her, the fantastic GlossandGadgets, chairwoman, creator, artist, animator of Goldhart Gaming, who plays Lael’essthrae (or Lael for short) on the Saturday Waterdeep: … Continue reading Sacred Oath: Oath of Nightsong

Valentine’s Day Special – Revised Divine Domain: Love

A year ago, I was inspired by fantastic people in the community like my dear wife Kannah, my now friend and hero Ruty Rutenberg, and others like Matt Mercer, Krystina Arielle, Satine Phoenix, and many more who advocate for love and compassion into our D&D community. Love is central to community and the people in it. As the capstone is of this subclass suggests, love … Continue reading Valentine’s Day Special – Revised Divine Domain: Love

Hero in the Making – A Lesson in Character Creation

When I started playing Dungeons & Dragons, I was obsessed with creating the “perfect character.” To some degree, even years later, I try to get everything with this one character right. Which character you might ask? The handsome blue-clad swashbuckler looking elf you see here: Daerthalion Dawntracker. In the process of creating him, and in some cases, re-creating and refining him, I learned more about … Continue reading Hero in the Making – A Lesson in Character Creation

Multiclass Mastery: Tactician

Not everyone is known for their strength and fighting prowess – sometimes you need brilliance from behind the scenes to orchestrate something bigger into motion in order to ensure victory. Such is the role of a tactician. One of my favourite video game references of this is from Dragon Age: Inquisition – your council of Commander Cullen, Josephine, and Leliana are all tacticians, with different … Continue reading Multiclass Mastery: Tactician

Multiclass Mastery: Master Thrower (Now with Throwing Knives!)

The Master Thrower is a fun character concept that I see a lot of people talk about and wish to create. Characters like this are often reminiscent of Bullseye from Marvel. Essentially, a Master Thrower is character that not only specializes in throwing weapons, but is amazing at it. Their speed, precision, and skill sets them apart from the average rogue who likes chucking a … Continue reading Multiclass Mastery: Master Thrower (Now with Throwing Knives!)
