DropTheDie Portfolio

This page is a landing pad and living repository for the majority of my work.

Though peer-to-peer consultations and freelance commissions make up the bulk of my portfolio, I have numerous self published titles as well as narrative and design consultations that may not have made the following list.

These products are among my favorite and most well-received releases, and their natural progression since I entered the industry highlight my interests and my design skills as they’ve matured and changed.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember: you can also contact me through this website with any questions, comments, or concerns!

Project Lead

The following projects involved two or more additional creators working in tandem with my own efforts as project lead and designer.

Taverns, Inns, and Taprooms

A wildly successful collection of nine unique setting-agnostic locations, complete with services, amenities, quests, magic items, and bespoke menus. This PDF reached 500 sales in four days and has since blasted through Gold, Platinum, and Mithral best seller status.

Taverns, Inns, and Taprooms IN HELL

Written in the 30-day space between the release of Taverns, Inns, and Taprooms and the launch of Baldur’s Gate: Descent Into Avernus, this 60-page PDF gives more locations to be found in the hostile expanse of the Nine Hells. New trinkets, magic items, exotic beverages and narcotics, and a collection of thematic and dangerous creatures – it’s made to inject into any Descent Into Avernus game.

Opus of Elemental Substance

A popular collection of 60 new elemental spells for 5e Dungeons and Dragons intended to add new options for each of the primary elements (acid, cold, fire, lightning, thunder) as well as the thematic element ‘earth.’ Spells range from level 0 to level 9.

Opus of Extrinsic Substance

Off the success of the Elemental collection of the same name, this collection of spells offers even more options for spellcasters, from summoning creatures to unleashing the power of the sun. As part of the AU Wildlife Relief project in 2020, it has been downloaded thousands of times in collections sold to benefit those affected by wildfires.

Solo Projects

The following projects were designed, constructed, completed, and released by myself and, at most, one other artist. Each thumbnail will take you to the product page for each publication for previews, descriptions, and additional information.

Freelance Contributer

Finally, these products and/or publications involved me directly as a contributor, layout artist, writer, or organizer.

Venture Maidens Campaign Guide

Venture Maidens Campaign Guide is a core mechanics book for 5th Edition spearheaded by game designer Celeste Conowitch, game master of the hugely successful Venture Maidens podcast.

A femme-led podcast and a femme-led publication, the Venture Maidens campaign guide contains enormous amounts of player options and monsters as well as brand new mechanics for epic storytelling in a high fantasy world called “The Planes.”

Contributions: Layout Artist, Editor, Supplementary Writer

Restaurants & Retail

The first major length expansion to the DriveThruRPG Gold-Best Seller and #1 Community DND Product, Monsters of Murka. This new expansion explores three unique locations: The dungeonesque reaches of Walmoria, the bewildering corridors of The Hall of Murka, and the legendary districts of Flavor City.

Chromatic Gamut

Monsters of Murka: Chromatic Gamut was created as a queer-led and queer-designed supplement book for 5e that puts the players in a position to fight back against gentrification and the exploitation of queer creations by corporations. Something we can never have too much of in the world of 5e is queer, blatantly silly material. But just because our book is silly doesn’t mean we ignore real issues.
