General D&D TTRPG club BWJ
  Hey soon we will be sending out a form for everybody to fill out. This form will ask if you are currently in a campaign, if you are a DM or a player etc. This is because we have had several people who have either lost their DM or have joined after first pickings who still want to play! Please can everybody fill this out (when it comes out). We have had an influx of new books that generous Mr Barrow has released for everybody so don't forget to check them out!

Also with the weekly homebrew, I'll begin to hopefully get back to that soon enough. I have had several exams and other problems that have led to me not releasing any new material. If anybody has any requests or even additions for the next article you can contact my gmail hughear@whs.school.nz!
