How To Write A D&D One-Shot

A large number of dungeon masters are intimately aware of the problems that come with creating a one-shot adventure for their players. The features that make roleplaying experiences effective (immersive settings, memorable characters, and compelling player motivations) will not be developed over the course one session, in contrast to a lengthy campaign. If you want to keep players engaged over a single story and game session, you must be efficient with your time, both during preparation and while at the gaming table. Effective planning and execution begin with identifying and addressing the critical components of the experience as soon as they [...]

Do Paladins Have To Be Lawful Good in D&D 5e

Paladin characters are often portrayed as being heroic warriors who fight evil. They fight on the side of their god for whatever justice they believe is in their tenets and codes. Part of the reason is that their characters are typically based on crusader ideals, and part of the reason is that gods and religion play a very heavy role in D&D.

How To Calculate Saving Throws in D&D 5e

Saving throws are a way for your DM to give you another chance. Let's set the scene.

Your party gives you that terrible command - 'hey, can you search for traps?' So you go ahead.
