The D&D 30 Day Challenge

Day 30: Best DM You've Had 0

Day 30: Best DM You’ve Had

Best DM? Wow, they’ve saved the hardest for last! I’m been roleplaying for almost 35 years and have played with a large number of DMs. If I include convention DMs we could be looking...

Day 29: Favourite Spell 0

Day 29: Favourite Spell

5th Edition has some great spells but some a just more fun that others. Choosing one to be my favourite spell rests on whether I’m the player or the DM. From the player’s perspective,...

Day 28: Favourite Weapon 0

Day 28: Favourite Weapon

I’m not sure that I have a favourite weapon. I don’t tend to pick weapons for my characters based on how much I like them. I tend to pick them based on how they...

Day 27: Favourite Cursed Item 0

Day 27: Favourite Cursed Item

I’ve never been a big proponent of cursed items so picking a favourite cursed item is difficult. In fact, the last time I used a cursed item I think was back in the ’80s....

Day 26: Favourite Non-Magic Item 0

Day 26: Favourite Non-Magic Item

There are a number of things that could qualify as my favourite non-magic item. Almost everything available in the equipment section of the rules has a shot at the title. There’s the historically iconic...

Day 25: Favourite Magic Item 0

Day 25: Favourite Magic Item

My favourite magic item is one that you should never actually give to your players. That’s the Deck of Many Things. The Deck of Many Things is not something I would hand out to...

Day 24: Favourite Energy Type 0

Day 24: Favourite Energy Type

Despite there are a number of different ones, picking my favourite energy type is easy. It’s coffee! OK, it’s not an energy type from the rules but I don’t really have any affinity with...

Day 23: Least Favourite Monster 0

Day 23: Least Favourite Monster

Least favourite monster? This is actually extremely easy. There is only one monster that I dislike. Actually, that’s a bit unfair. It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s that I just don’t understand...

Day 22: Favourite Monster 0

Day 22: Favourite Monster

There are plenty of monsters left, so picking a single favourite monster is tough. I’m going to stick within the spirit of the rules though and pick something that I haven’t picked before.┬áThat still...

Day 21: Favourite Dragon Colour/Type 0

Day 21: Favourite Dragon Colour/Type

Favourite Dragon Colour/Type? Now this is one that I can easily pick. It’s got to be the iconic red dragon hasn’t it? I know I’ve mentioned it before but J.R.R. Tolkien has a lot...

Day 20: Favourite Humanoid/Fey 0

Day 20: Favourite Humanoid/Fey

Favourite Humanoid/Fey has to have the largest number of potential answers. It’s certainly difficult to narrow down the options. I’ve always been a fan of humans, for example. They are an example of both...

Day 19: Favourite Elemental/Plant 0

Day 19: Favourite Elemental/Plant

I was a little surprised at just how many monsters there are in the elemental/plant category so it’s a little harder to pick a favourite elemental/plant. Historically, I’ve always been fond of the shambling...

Day 18: Favourite Immortal/Outsider 0

Day 18: Favourite Immortal/Outsider

There can be only one choice here. My Favourite Immortal/Outsider is the demon Balor. Many more will know the creature as the balrog at the end of the Fellowship of the Ring. The story...

Day 17: Favourite Beast 0

Day 17: Favourite Beast

So, favourite beast. That has to be the bear. Any bear will do (black, brown, cave, or polar) but my personal preference is the cave bear. Large, savage beasts that can easily rip a...

Day 16: Favourite Aberration 0

Day 16: Favourite Aberration

As previously mentioned, this next spate of questions is hard for me as I don’t really have favourite monsters. That said, I have to pick a favourite aberration so I’m going to go with...

Day 15: Favourite Undead Monster 0

Day 15: Favourite Undead Monster

This is the part of the challenge that I’m not looking forward. Favourite ___ Monster. Today it’s Favourite Undead Monster. The reason I’m not looking forward to it is that I don’t really have...

Day 14: Favourite NPC 0

Day 14: Favourite NPC

Maybe it’s because I tend to improvise this sort of thing, but I don’t have a single favourite NPC. That said, I do tend to fall back on my favourite NPC stereotypes. So, I...

Day 13: Favourite Trap/Puzzle 0

Day 13: Favourite Trap/Puzzle

Favourite Trap/Puzzle? That’s actually an easy one. It’s a trap we came up with during a “competition” game in the late ’90s. The idea behind the competition was that we had a couple of...
