Starting today, with the first strip of Chapter 4 of A Chronicle of Thieves, Chronicle will officially be making the move to providing Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition content.
If you followed us in the past, you may have seen content produced for Pathfinder and wonder why we made the move to Dungeons & Dragons and specifically 5e. The truth is that Dungeons & Dragons has always been the rule system of Chronicle. It began as an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons campaign and evolved into a 3rd Edition campaign. Pathfinder, in my eyes, was always seen as an extension of D&D especially when I found it hard to convert my already written content to 4th Edition. That being said, I don’t have that problem with 5th Edition, as I find it easy to create and convert content for 5e.
So, what can you expect from the D&D content? Well, each week there will be some piece of game material that accompanies the strip. It may be a stat block for a cast character, NPC or monster, it may be a new subclass or subrace, it may be a new magic item, or it might even be a one-page encounter.
This week, we’re starting off with something basic, the Brotherhood Guards. These guards bring a bit of muscle to back the investigators of the Ebon Path like Algernon.
These will all be collected under our The World of Chronicle section. If you have ideas for the types of content you would like to see, feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think.
We’ll see you next week with our first cast member stat block for Kereth!
