Stories of the Fifth Age, Ep: Final! “Paladins”

Bright armor gleaming like the sun, and swinging holy swords to smite down the foes of all that is good and just, the Paladin is one of the greatest tropes in fantasy literature, and D&D lore. It is also one of the most maligned and oft abused classes, with more than a few parties dreading […]

Stories of the Fifth Age, Ep. 90: “Wizards and Sorcerers”

Whether hunched over stacks of arcane tomes, or feeling the stirrings of unknown power from within their blood, the wizard and sorcerer are two of the most well known classes within D&D.

Masters of martial combat, in the many forms that it can take, the Fighter represents a bit of a unique premise amidst the classes of D&D. While most of the other classes offer specific styles or ideas to build around, the fighter is a largely blank slate. In this episode, our hosts discuss the Fighter […]

Stories of the Fifth Age, Ep. 80: “Warlocks”

Possessed of mysterious and unique powers, unlike those of other wielders of magical might, the warlock is an oft misunderstood class.

Mastery over nature, and balance between the four elements are the ways of the Druid. A class of unique power and role within the options of D&D, the Druid presents many ways for its abilities to interact with the world at large, and retains a distinct mystique behind the society that binds the druidic orders […]

Stories of the Fifth Age, Ep. 74: “Monks”

Powerful forces of spiritual and physical might, the monk represents a being of martial discipline and mental fortitude. But when we look at the class, what expectations do we put on it, what stereotypes are placed on the class just by the preconceptions of the style in which it was created? In this episode, our […]

Stories of the Fifth Age, Ep. 71: “Bards”

Out of the many classes D&D has come to offer through the years, few have had such a complicated place within its history as the Bard. Stuck in the middle as a jack of all trades, master of none in the eyes of many, the Bard has long struggled to stand out among its more […]
