Site Update #2

Unfortunately this project has been on the backburner for the past few months, but I have been creating extras and trying to get my head around the intricacies of a simplified D&D in the background. Here a few updates that you might find useful. All of these are in their early iterations.

Handbook:

I’ve been working on a ‘handbook’ to guide newcomers through the early stages of Easy D&D, needs a lot of work but progress is happening.

Class:

Here’s the breakdown by class so far and some examples that are finished.
