About

 

I want to create a truly all inclusive campaign system for 5e Dungeons and Dragons. I'm tired of campaign books that still require hours of prep to turn into a functional campaign. I say no more!

What comes included with the DM's best friend? 

  • Booklet of notes with ample blank space for your own shorthands ,and session notes
  • Full size, full colour, high resolution encounter maps
  • Stat cards for every NPC and creature that the party may encounter
  • Full lists of available items in every store
  • Character reference cards with personality notes and portraits for every major NPC
  • 2D miniatures for every creature and NPC in the adventure
  • Notes, pictures and items to handout to players for a full immersion experience

All of these will be available both in digital and physical forms, and all parts will be optional (if you play theatre of the mind, you can opt out of the miniatures and the encounter maps, for example)

The original world is already created, the first adventure has already been written (save for some finishing touches), all that's needed is funding for finalization and publication.

Risks and challenges

I don't have the skills required to finish this on my own. I will need to bring on board other people (mainly artists) to complete this project. However this has been my passion for the last few years and I am ready to see it through to the end.
