New D&D 5e (Working) Cleric Weapon: Hammer of Blood

Yep, always pictured the Metallica Kill'em All album Hammer


Pulling open my DM Notebook of years past, I have this weapon from my AD&D 1e days that I am updating to 5e.

This was original for a Cleric that worships a God of war... Such as Tempus or Bane. It can be used for an evil character or carefully by a Good aligned character (as long as they are not Lawful Good).



Cleric Weapon: Hammer of Blood

This weapon appears to be a magical +2 to hit weapon, once identified or attuned the follow properties reveal themselves to you.

  • Drawing first Blood - When any enemy gets to 50% of their health (or Bloodied status) the hammer senses the blood of its enemy and increases to +3 weapon.
  • The Blood of my Enemy, Feeds me - During any battle encounter, after drawing first blood you may declare one of those bloodied enemies as your chosen enemy, and upon a successful strike, you will do an additional 1d8 points of damage, and each round following that you stand alive, the chosen enemy will take that bleeding damage until they are healed. You may use this once after every short rest.
  • The Final Blow, Blood be splattered - Should you land the final on your chosen enemy, you will bash down on him with the power of the Gods, crushing his skull flat, blood splattering everywhere. That blood splatter will cause all enemies around you (15ft radius), 1d4 points of damage. You may use this once after every short rest.

Low Level Mundane Trap Ideas!


Was thinking this morning about traps, and how you could do the cheap, low effort, non elaborate traps that they are so mundane that the average person looking for them, wont even think about them, and then it hit me...

What's the first gaming book that made you fall in love?


While most people who know me, know I am all about Dungeons and Dragons and I grew up playing this game like an obsessed mad-man!

Random 2017 observations, let's make 2018 great! #GameOn


I am glad 2017 is over.
In the past year I've seen things like so called friends turn into backstabbers, and do some dastardly things to me. What can we do as humans? move on and learn from the experience.

I have a lot going on these days, between the Pocket mimic podcast, the World of Arkonis actual play podcast, the Classic Faserip podcast and all the shows I run as a producer, I can't focus on the negative.

2018 is going to be a year of ignoring assholes and focus more on gaming with friends and family.

Loving the future I see, God bless everyone and those that don't believe in God, good luck and fortune to you in your life!

Let's get down to gaming.

First things on my agenda is creating some custom 5e weapons for my group.

So far I have:
  • Rafu's Blinding Justice Katana for my Samurai Player
  • Vianna's Shining Light for the Cleric player
  • Need one for a Druid.
  • Need one for a vanilla fighter.

Dungeon Master Journaling, my step by step brainstorming process.

I've been asked a few times how I do my planning for any of the games I do, whether it be AD&D 1e or Marvel. I did a video on w...

What's hot?
