Well, I've rounded out 250 posts already. Yay! In celebration, let's go back to the start, and consider some ideas for converting my years-long-rpg-baby the Old Crown setting to 5e D&D. This is a question I've been mulling over for a few years. The Old Crown began as a D&D setting, and sort of evolved … Continue reading Does the Old Crown work in D&D 5e?
I was looking for inspiration in old posts when I came across this one about the Races in the Old Crown, and it's horribly out of date! (2012!) So, here's another redux on what I'm thinking so far, other than Menfolk. Beastkin Slightly shorter than menfolk, beastkin inhabit much of the woodlands of the Old … Continue reading Old Crown – Races Redux

Characters would need to quest to find out anything about 'Origins' or the creation of the Wode and Menfolk. The true history of the world … Continue reading A History Lesson
