Real talk, out of character as the Voivode Kohoutek, master of the Dungeonsports Coliseum, I wanted to talk to you about why I run these games, and how you can support the Coliseum if it is meaningful to you.

I know there are a lot of people out there in search of games, and there are a lot of barriers to getting into a game. It’s hard to find a DM, let alone a good DM for you. It’s hard to allocate the time to playing the game on a regular basis. It can be an expensive hobby. I’m here to try and help players overcome all those issue. I may not be the best DM, but I get by. My games are open to everyone who plays well with others. My games are drop-in and -out friendly, and I don’t charge players.

On that last point, I do need to make a little money to cover the time I put in, and hopefully allow me to expand and improve the content of these games. As I said above, I don’t require players to pay, but I do hope that, one way or another, players will choose to support me as I grow the community. Because of this there are a variety of ways to show support, both, financially and otherwise.

So, if you’ve got some extra scratch you can support the Dungeonsports Coliseum by:

And if you don’t, you could always :

The Apocryphon of Voivode

The Apocryphon of Voivode cover features an image of the coliseum floating through the Astral Plane on the back of the Shieldbeast.
Check out the tentacles on that Shieldbeast!

The Apocryphon of Voivode: Manual of the Dungeonsports Coliseum is finally here! OK, not here, but over on the DM’s Guild, but you can follow the link from here!

You could of course, scour the Coliseum Rules section of this website for the rules, and through the posts for all the great art. But indeed, you would not find every savory bit of content that is contained in these 22 pages of digital information. Nor would it all be so conveniently assembled and formatted for your enjoyment.

So, you might ask, “My Voivode, how much must I pay for this invaluable tome?” I mean, you just said it yourself, this knowledge is truly beyond valuation. But I would take pity on you, knowing you’re just a fledgling adventurer, and tell you that it would cost you naught. Download it for free! Although you can pay what you want, and I, your Voivode, would happily take your money, as it costs a lot to keep the Shieldbeast fed.

Apocryphon of Voivode: Who is it for?

You ask very good questions! Well, in my opinion, it’s for everyone. First off, it’s invaluable for those who would be contestants in the Dungeonsports Coliseum. While our little game is D&D 5e, there are a few additional rules to keep combat interesting. There is also substantial background on the history of the Coliseum and it’s denizens. Perhaps most interestingly, you can find information about becoming a follower of Verasundia or Mechanus, and learn what awards await the faithful.

Dungeons masters will find much of use in these pages as well. Creating combat encounters that can challenge high level PCs can be difficult. At the same time, you don’t want to throw something at your players they won’t be able to handle. Oh, the shame of an unearned TPK! These pages contain my guidelines for creating encounters that will challenge adventurers to the edge of their abilities.

Come and see the wonders inside The Apocryphon of Voivode!
