Markdown-powered creation of authentic-looking D&D Fifth Edition adventures

Scott Tolksdorf’s The Homebrewery:

The Homebrewery makes the creation and sharing of authentic looking Fifth-Edition homebrews easy. It uses Markdown with a little CSS magic to make your brews come to life.

I’m Dungeon Master of a group currently playing the Storm King’s Thunde adventure. Last weekend, my 12 year old nephew was visiting, and he wanted a taste of what playing tabletop D&D was like. I downloaded an introductory taster of an adventure, called The Wealthy Merchant, and while it was (intentionally) simplistic, the design and high-production quality of the PDF was amazing! It looked like something out of the Players’ Handbook. Clicking around, I discovered it was templated by a project called The Homebrewery.

This is a great tool for homebrew adventures or one-shots. It’s powered by Markdown, the source code’s MIT licensed and available on Github, and it has a smart content entry interface. What’s not to love? Check it out.
