5th Edition Content for Dungeon Masters

Welcome! If you're a 5th Edition Dungeon Master looking for more content you can use in your game, you're in the right place. On this page you'll find content intended for you, the Dungeon Master, to use in your home game of 5th Edition roleplaying and adventure. Running a game is hard work, let us make your life easier.

What Do I Get?

One encounter every month is  free and it always will be. All the encounters we produce are made in the style of The Total Party Kill Handbook, which means it has scaling options to adjust the level of the encounter or change the tactics monsters use, as well as suggested plot hooks to incorporate it into your own game, and a 'changing the flavor' section which discusses how to tweak the encounter's theme to better match your campaign. 

As we hit new milestones in total funding per month, we'll start releasing extra content every month. All the additional content we unlock through additional funding will be  Patron-only, but if you pledge even $1 per month, you'll get access to everything we release. Now that we have reached $150 in monthly funding, we'll be releasing our standard free encounter every month, and one additional item which will be Patron-only. Below you'll find our monthly release schedule, which we'll update as we hit our goals!

Monthly Release Schedule:
  • The 15th - One encounter in the style of The Total Party Kill Handbook, ready to run in your home game. (Public)
  • The 30th - New content! In some months this will be a second encounter in the same style, and in others it will be something completely different. Expect previews and beta test content from upcoming books and other experimental material. (Patron-only)

Who Is 2CGaming?

If you don't already know us, 2CGaming is a small start up focused on creating content for the 5th Edition of the world's favorite roleplaying game, as well as developing our own systems. The guy writing these words is Steven Gordon, that's me! You may remember me from such Kickstarters as The Total Party Kill Handbook. I'll be writing most of the content you see on this Patreon! You can find out more about us on our website: www.2cgaming.com

Why Patreon?

We want to meet the needs of the community. As we get more support, we'll start adding additional content, and we'll be turning to you, our patrons, to decide what that content is! If you want more monsters, we'll release a packet of monsters every month. If you feel like the magic items in the Dungeon Master's Guide aren't up to snuff, we'll give you a set of new magical items! We'll release a poll each time we hit a new milestone to determine what we'll be adding to our monthly release schedule. We'll also release polls asking our Patrons what level range of content you are most interested in seeing, whether it's the scrappy low levels from 1 to 4, or if you need something to challenge the towering heroes of 17th level and above!

When Do I Get It?

All free content is available for download them right now! Check the Posts tab at the top of the page for an archive of all released content. For our Patron-only content, you'll get access as soon as your pledge is processed, which happens on the 1st day of each month. If you pledge at a reward level that includes extra stuff, like the behind the scenes audio recordings, or one on one meetings with the 2CGaming Team, you'll get access to those when your pledge is processed as well.

Why Content For Dungeon Masters?

Because being a Dungeon Master is difficult. It takes time, energy, and a whole lot of courage. But without a Dungeon Master, there is no game. We want to encourage veteran Dungeon Masters to keep their campaigns going and make it easier for a novice to take up the mantle themselves and run their first campaign. There's lot of good advice floating around on the internet about how to be a good DM, but there's a big gap between a published adventure and a completely custom campaign. We want to help you bridge that gap.


What Else Does 2CGaming Make?

Lots of stuff! If you like the encounters we release here and want 25 more, you'll find exactly that in The Total Party Kill Handbook:  http://www.2cgaming.com/store/p10/tpk-handbook Funded through our first Kickstarter in 2015, it's a great resource for Dungeon Masters both new and experienced. Weighing in at almost 200 pages, it's a hefty tome.

We're steadily working on Epic content for 5th Edition, designed to take all twelve classes from the Player's Handbook from 20th level all the way up to 30th. You can follow our progress here:  http://www.2cgaming.com/epic-legacy.html
