I do not know if Sword Coast is going to be as robust as that nor if it will be AL legal to do so.

I want a single Fantasy Empire Greatsword type mini.  A champion would be fine.  A guy with a greatsword and a plumed hat and puffy shirt.  Can anyone recommend a good mini selling website I might not know about?

We had a paladin, a lawfulgood cleric of light s druid and a wizardesd who had recently been corrupted by a scale of Tiamat. So she was chaotic evil, though the player has a hard time remembering. I think they'll give it to the spy of Law.

Session Reports  - 
 
I ran Jeweler Who Dealt in Stardust the other night.  It was great.  Really similar to a Stroh module from IV  but still a great one session scenario.  The multiple entrances were great.  The players got fired up figuring out how to deal with the Candle/shadow room and the final battle.

Yeah, the one that watches I think wins. But, the map for jeweler is pretty ingenious

Some kind soul from the WOTC forums has made automated generators from 5e DMG tables. Check it out here (and expect more to be added).

Has anyone played "Fate's Fell Hand"?  Any stories to tell?  Tips? Tricks?  Typical outcomes? I picked it up the other day and am thinking of running it soon. +Harley Stroh

Mashing up Lost Mine of Phandelver, Hoard of the Dragon Queen and Grimm's Fairytales!
I've been running a D&DV game by email since July with some old friends.  I've been using these great Grimm's Fairytales inspired modules for Dungeon Crawl Classics by +Daniel Bishop, "Prince Charming, Re-animator" and "Creeping Beauties".  I've been converting on the fly
It's basically been a hex-crawl in a zombie infested fairy forest.  Last night we got together in person.  
The group found and slew the zombie horror version of Sleeping Beauty!
In between the two modules the party had explored the town of Thundertree from the Starter Set and met the green dragon there.  I threw down a lot of flavor text and they ended up offering their services to the dragon, who directed them to the undead horror they were searching for.  Little did they know Sleeping Beauty's lair was until recently the dragon's lair!  
They found heaps of treasure, a massive statue to Tiamat and a couple of dragon scales, but thought nothing of it.
Returning to town to claim their reward from the Duke they discovered it to be under attack from an angry dragon!  
They played smart and gave up all their treasure immediately and so were spared.  
Next up, Hoard of the Dragon Queen...
I'm thinking the Cult will be a bit more like spies of a Warhammer Chaos Army.  Beastmen instead of half-dragons.  Skaven instead of kobolds.

What would you all do if the players try to wake Beauty in her bedroom instead of bringing her down to Prince Charming?  Ideas?
