Detentions and Dragons

May 6, 2019

A +1 fire sword is fun. But why not have a +1 fire sword with a spitfire personality?!

On this lesson, Josh and Matt discuss sentient weapons, what they are, how to use them narratively, and how to roll for random sentient weapons using the stats in the Dungeon Master's Guide . Magic weapons are fun but a living weapon with its own personality and stats can add a new dimensions to your game!

Josh and Matt talk a bit about dumb shirts we will never make.

They also make their own sentient weapon in the podcast: the vengeful rat! This could be their greatest creation yet.

Did these two teachers inspire you to roll for your own sentient item? Then help Josh and Matt out by recommending Detentions and Dragons to a friend, teacher, or student. New listeners are the best way to help us grow as a podcast. Thanks again for all of your support!
