d100 Dark Lord's Commands


Thanks for this recent vid. It spiked my hits to a high point and made me bother to d100 again. I had the lowest posts and ratings in 12 years so this and the swell of interest in this page has encouraged me. Comments encourage me. Telling me what you like and sharing how you use my content encourages me. Reading it quietly is nice but some useful feedback helps everybody win.

Remember when EHP was a normal abbreviation for EVIL HIGH PRIEST? Sorta hardwired into basic d&d with reversible spells. Also, EHP do bad things so look out for naughtiness ahead this post. I'm getting a bit more into reading 5th ed (not playing it). I have a dmg and monster book in the post to me and will try and pick up Volo's, Xanthar's guides. Tasha's book looks good and the magical environments is very me. Like like lots of stuff in this new book and the puzzle section has me interested as I hate puzzles. Morkendainens foes book is more lore Im not into as much but probably may get. It all started with Theros and Saltmarsh I got partly for the maps.  Considering some old-school modules I never had lots of the mid 80s modules and never sow some of these so looking at some pdfs to see if i want to hunt hardcopies.

Anyway here are some commands for that dark lord invading your world or up to no good. It might even just be some evil priest in a dungeon in black plate with a mace who dreams of being the dark lord or his servant. Or why not a dark lady with amazon orks in black with whips that carry away all the barbarian men. These are the sort of things orcs and evil templars or adventurers get to do in the lords service. Or perhaps these are the order the dungeon priest has been given. Or those orcs on the way somewhere who didn't want to fight. Or if your players need to have witnessed sone naughty acts so they can wear more black and be edgy you could roll here. Is edgelord a character class yet?
