Embracing the Mechanics of Backgrounds

When you embrace the mechanics of 5th edition Backgrounds you expand the variety of stories that can be told at your table.

Darius Dondermonger – inspired by dragons and cheese.

Darius Dondermonger came into being when two roads combined. The first road originated some time ago, when the D&D released the Drakewarden. Dragons are quite important in the World of the Everflow, so I knew I would revisit the Drakewarden. The second road came when grocery shopping. We needed cheese, lots of cheeses. Yes, we’re fans of charcuterie. These roads merged when reading about Dragon’s Milk Stout’s web-RPG release. As often happens, flavor started to inspire the story.
