Combat Narration

I like to be descriptive when it comes to combat. After all, RPGs are a shared storytelling experience, right? Instead of just calling a hit, a hit, why not say “My sword slashes down its calf cutting several tendons in half” or “My healing words float in ribbons of salving weave around you”. It’s a personal preference but also a matter of having the vocabulary at hand.

The wallpaper below may help you find the words you need to make your combat just that tiny bit more descriptive.

Enjoy!

Note from the author

Thanks for your interest in Rise of the Forged. I worked long and hard to create this labor of love but it hasn’t been thoroughly play tested. Feel free to leave your feedback in the comments below and I will see if and how I will implement updates in a later version.

Hasta la vista!

ECHO WAVE 1PD

The D&D Lost Mines of Phandelver starter adventure is a great place to start your campaign in the Forgotten Realms. Or at least, that’s what we did! What started as a short adventure turned into a two year campaign.

In the original adventure, the Echo Wave Caves is where the grande finale takes place. In our campaign, it’s where the rest of our adventure started. After killing the Big Bad Boss, our group had to figure out why these people were being kidnapped. A chase across the Undersea ensued!

One page dungeons make it really easy to run a session at the table. This version may not match your adventure to the tee, you’ll probably find some hacks for your finale.
