@theduckinvestigator did the original sketch! I inked in and colored the rest!

My D&D oc Paxidor Meryhuthor, Firbolg Druid of the Circle of the Deathbloom

He’s a very happy bi cowboi who loves to talk to mushrooms and play with dead things!

I kinda love how he turned out looking like an anime boy

Imagine the possibility:

Look at those skeletones of saints that are just encrusted with jewels. And now imagine your Lich in a D&D campaign and how absolutely epic he looks. 
And another plus: good luck with finding his phylactery.

BTW the first one is very basic but the second one is a drama queen, I know it.

D&D Class Cocktails

I originally just wanted to make cocktails for my players based on their character classes, but then I got a little too much into it and made ones for each of the twelve D&D classes! Two of them are from a Youtube channel that does this all the time (part of what inspired me to do so) and you can find links to them for the Vicious Mockery and Eldritch Patron drinks. The ones that I ended up spending time (and money) making I was able to take Insta-worthy pics of for the post. Either way, enjoy!


Barbarian Rage

  • ½ oz Lime Juice
  • 1 oz Tequila
  • 1 can Stout
  • Lime Wedge

I feel like anything that has a head on it counts as a barbarian’s drink, but this one also has tequila to fuel the rage. Pour the stout into a tankard, crush the can against your head. Pour the tequila and lime juice into a 1.5 oz shot glass. Dunk the shot into the tankard, then crush the lime with your bare hands over the drink, ignoring the pain from any cuts sustained through combat, and drop it in. Enjoy.

Vicious Mockery

  • ¼ Orange, Muddled
  • 1 ½ oz. Spiced Rum
  • 1 oz. Jaegermeister
  • Several dashes Peychaud’s Bitters, to taste
  • Orange Twist for garnish

From the lovely people over at Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies. I mean if it ain’t broken don’t fix it. Muddle the orange quarter, add the spiced rum, Jaeger, bitters, and ice, then mix and garnish with the orange twist. Bound to deal d4s of psychic damage.

Turn Undead

  • ½ oz Elderflower Liqueur
  • 2 oz White Rum
  • 2 oz White Cranberry Juice
  • ¼ oz Lime Juice
  • 4 Basil Leaves
  • Club Soda

This is meant to look clear (or close to it) as if it’s pure enough to turn undead itself. Kinda like boozy holy water. Muddle two of the basil leaves. Shake the muddled basil, rum, cranberry juice, elderflower liqueur, and lime juice with ice. Then strain into a glass and top with the club soda and garnish with remaining basil.

Druidcraft

  • 1½ oz Gin
  • 1 oz Elderflower liqueur
  • ½ oz Honey
  • ¾ oz Lemon Juice
  • 2 oz Club Soda
  • 1 tsp Culinary Lavender
  • 3 Sage Leaves

I actually make this one a lot… I just named it for this post. It’s very floral and light, like you would expect from a druid. Shake together the gin, elderflower liqueur, honey, lemon juice, lavender, and two muddled sage leaves with ice, then strain into a glass. Garnish with the remaining sage leaf. Little bits of the lavender getting in the drink is fine. If you don’t want to slurp them up you can easily use a straw too.

Action Surge

  • 1 ¾ oz Vodka
  • ¼ oz Triple Sec
  • 4 oz Surge Soda
  • Splash Cranberry Juice
  • 2 lime slices
  • 2 maraschino cherries

This one was very tasty. Prepare a highball glass with lime slices and some maraschino cherries and half-fill with ice. Mix the vodka, triple sec, and Surge together (don’t shake, it’s soda). Pour into the prepared glass and top with a splash of the cranberry juice. Besides the Surge pun, the red slowly combining with the green almost seems like it’s the blood pumping through the fighter as they proceed to literally take an entire extra turn.

Flurry of Blows

  • 1 oz Gin
  • ½ oz Triple Sec
  • ½  oz Peach Schnapps
  • ½  oz Lemon Juice
  • 1 oz Ginger Ale or Ginger Beer
  • 1-2 Leaves Basil

A series of three shots to take. Careful, one is a Stunning Strike and hits much harder than the other two! Muddle your basil leaves and stir with the lemon juice and ginger ale/beer. Put the peach schnapps into one 1.5 oz shot glass, the triple sec into another, and the gin into the third. Top off each shot glass with the lemon-ginger-basil mixture. Ideally, only the one with the gin will really do anything.

Divine Smite

  • ½ c. Apple Cider
  • ½ tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 oz Whiskey
  • Fresh Rosemary
  • 2 Dried Rosemary Sprigs

This one was very good. Burn some dried rosemary and place the glass upside-down over it to let the smoke coat the inside of the glass. Shake fresh rosemary, cider, maple syrup, and whiskey with ice and strain into the smoked glass. For garnish, burn another rosemary twig, blow it out, and drop into the drink so it lets off smoky wisps. The theory for this one is the smoke is the aftermath of the paladin’s smite. I used a martini glass because I have a limited variety of glasses but I feel like the garnish floats too much. If I did it again I might use a lowball glass with rocks to keep the rosemary in place.

Hunter’s Mark

  • 2 oz Maker’s Mark Bourbon
  • 1 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Cane Sugar
  • Club Soda
  • Lemon Round

Hopefully the pun resonates. Shake the bourbon, lemon juice, and sugar with ice and strain into a lowball glass. Top with a bit of club soda and garnish with a lemon round pierced with a toothpick right through the bullseye. I did a hack job turning the toothpick into an arrow. You could probably get away with those hors d'oeuvres toothpicks that have the colorful frilled tips for the arrow’s fletching.

Sneak Attack

  • 5-6 oz Orange Juice
  • 1 oz Peach Schnapps
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • Cream Soda
  • Orange Twist
  • Red Syrup (I just made 2:1, sugar:water ratio of simple syrup with red food coloring; grenadine was too runny when I tried it)

Named because the alcohol is completely hidden by the sugary drink. It will indeed sneak up on you. Dip the rim of the glass in the red syrup, then turn over so it drips down the glass. Stir the orange juice and vodka and pour into the glass without touching the sides (I don’t own a highball glass but that would probably look nicer). Top the drink with cream soda. Garnish with an orange twist (use those little plastic swords if you have em!)

Maximized Fireball

  • 2 oz Fireball Shiskey
  • 1 oz Dry Vermouth
  • 1 Dash of Bitters
  • Orange Twist
  • Cinnamon Stick Soaked in Bacardi 151

Stir the ingredients together with ice then strain into a lowball glass. Garnish with a “flamed” orange twist (squeezed over a lit match into the glass). Light the cinnamon stick on fire, then drop into the drink. I know Fireball gets a lot of flack but I mean, come on, it’s the name of the spell. You could try that Tabasco whiskey instead if you hate Fireball. 

Eldritch Patron

  • 2 oz Gin
  • ½ oz Vermouth
  • ¼ oz Black Sambuca
  • 3 Dashes Black Walnut Bitters
  • Green Maraschino Cherries

Another one from Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies. Stir the gin, vermouth, Sambuca and bitters with ice then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with the green cherries. Looks like alien eyeballs in an inky darkness, as it should.

The Spellbook

  • 12 oz Pinot Grigio
  • 2 oz Blue Curacao
  • 2 oz Lemonade
  • 2 oz Simple Syrup
  • Blue Petal Dust (optional)
  • Orange Juice
  • Lemon-Lime soda
  • Fruits like oranges, cherries, and starfruit, cut into slices

Mix all the ingredients into a punch bowl, then add equal parts orange juice and the soda to fill it out. Add the fruit slices. I used starfruit because it looks wizardy, but you can always add whatever you want to your Spellbook, as long as you spend gold and time based on the spell's level. The blue petal dust can be used to make the drink opalescent, though I imagine it will be less apparent in a big bowl. Try mixing it individual glasses.

Anonymous sent: currently dming a party where instead of rolling to see if this strange bard who looked like cher was lying about not knowing what a cow is the entire party just kept rolling to draw cows in the dirt until bard cher understood what a cow was.

This sounds like very many interactions I have had with my own group!!

Feel free to send me your own RPG stories and I’ll draw them!!

BNHA D&D

hear me out

- midoriya and tokoyami bonding over dnd in the common room

- “Yes. I am a level 12 druid shifter. Dark shadow is a level 6 rogue.”

- “That’s so cool Tokoyami! It’s been a bit since I played, but I’m a level 10 warlock, maybe we could campaign together!”

- Bakugou’s about to call them fucking losers

- but then Kirishima’s like “bro hold my weights” and he just launches into how he used to live for this kind of stuff back in middle school and about how he’s a level 17 dragonborn fighter

- Midoriya and Tokoyami are so utterly taken aback and impressed that they all just start rambling and Bokugou’s just  u p s e t

- Todoroki walks in and just sort of…listens? he doesn’t know what Midoriya’s talking about but he sounds enthusiastic and when they make eye contact, Izuku’s eyes just light up and he whispers “half-elf”

- Todoroki is intrigued

- an hour of brainstorming and explaining later and Todoroki’s starting off as a level 1 half-elf sorcerer.

- “His name is Shouto.”

- “Todoroki are you su-”

- “Shouto.”

- Kaminari barges in, “DO YOU NEED A HUMAN BARD”

- followed by Shinsou who reluctantly confesses he’s a level 5 tiefling paladin because of course Kaminari had to get him into it

- Bokugou’s just f e d  u p and starts yelling about how stupid dnd is and about how lame this entire conversation is and how he’d never be caught dead playing dnd and Kirishima just sighs and is like;

“Too bad, you would’ve made a pretty cool barbarian.”

“A fucking what.”

- It takes Kirishima an entire hour to explain and convince Bakugou that he can’t just start as a level 20 barbarian goliath. They manage to negotiate it down to level 3.

- Ochako comes back from practice in time for the start of the campaign and she just opens up a stray notebook and it’s got SO MANY notes and weapons and stats and she just levels them with a dangerous glint in her eyes, “level 18 orc, fighter class, when are we starting
