Converting 2e to 5e Realms

Up on NewbieDM’s blog we’ve got a great piece about converting older 2e D&D material into 5e. There’s not a ton of hard math here but it’s a great jumping off point for anyone who’s looking to do the same thing. Be sure to check it out and tell us what you think!

Tune in as Ben and I muse about our youth, and actually solving this problem!
