Do you feel like your D&D games have been held back by pointless dice rolls? Let us introduce you to the concept of Taking 10.
“Necromancy”—it’s a word weighed down with centuries of moral preconceptions, even in D&D. It drips with cultural memories of medieval satanism and wicked witches. Why would Wizards of the Coast devote an entire school of magic to such an utterly evil pursuit?

Unlike in D&D, when you envision a real-world monk, you probably imagine one of two things: a portly Friar Tuck-like fellow or a lean, bald Buddhist in a saffron one. In both cases, they appear to be deeply religious. But what about D&D monks – are they religious?
Legendary actions can dramatically improve the difficulty, fun, and excitement of an encounter when used properly. How can a DM incorporate legendary attacks?
Dying in D&D is easy – anything from a stray arrow to dragon’s breath can end your life as an adventurer. Thankfully, there are ways to bring you back from the afterlife!
