A Revision to Alchemy [D&D 5th]

D&D 5th leaves a lot of item creation not particularly fleshed out.  While that's likely intentional, it leaves a lot of detail to be desired.  ENWorld contributor Fralex came up with a complete overhaul for Alchemy that makes it rather detailed and diverse.  Check it out here.

Indexing Free D&D 5th Content

Given Wizards of the Coast's new, Super Intuitive web site, I figured I would index all of the PDF content for D&D 5th I could find for some ease of use.

Another Mock Draft

MTG Mock Draft

Roll20 Shadowrun Macros

I had my first session of Shadowrun 20th Anniversary Edition using the free Roll20 virtual tabletop on Saturday.  All in all, it took a huge amount of hackery in advance to make work, but I'm pleased at the result to a certain degree.  It made large combats not a horrible painful chore like they had been, and really smoothed up a lot of things.  All in all, it went well.  Two things were lacking: Firstly, their Wound Mod calculation didn't work most of the time; and secondly, it lacked the ability to take successes on an attack roll and turn them into a boost for damage dice, meaning that a second macro with more user inputs had to handle damage.  In any case, here's the set of macros that I used to work most of the combat in-engine, since I noticed next to no support on the wiki.
