Welcome to DM’s Toolkit

Stepping into the shoes of a Dungeon Master can be a daunting and difficult task, but it doesn’t have to be as challenging as most believe. Here at DM’s Toolkit we aim to help new and experienced DMs alike run a successful game—the easy way.

Essentials

Getting Started

SRD5e

Random Generators

The ultimate one stop resource for random generators.

Kobold Fight Club
Comprehensive combat encounter generator. Roll combat encounters based on party number and level, CR range, location, monster type, etc.

NPC Generator
Quickly create NPCs with stats, traits, and a unique hook.

FaNG – Fantasy Name Generator
Random names for NPCs, towns, factions, and more at your literal fingertips. Android mobile app. I have this open at every gaming session. Makes it easy to avoid a “Boblin the Goblin” scenario.

Atmosphere

Curated Spotify Playlist
Created by u/bezoing. A lot of love and hard work went into creating this playlist and the quality and breadth shows it. Something as simple as using a Bluetooth speaker paired with your phone can create an incredible amount of atmosphere, tension, and immersion at the table. Having ambient sounds and music will take your game to the next level.

Material Catalog
Printable cards for just about everything. Equipment, magic items, spell slots and more. You can see the final result here.

D&D 5th Edition Monster Cards
Filled out cards for every creature included in the SRD5e, with a form fillable PDF to customize your own.

Notice Board
A modular notice board! Give you starting quests some more oomf by letting your players pick them with this fully modular asset pack.
