Enter the code GABRIEL when shopping on the Little Dragon Corp or Dragon TCG Crystal Commerce sites. Additionally, if you specify 1, 2, or 3 in your order notes, you’ll be sent a mystery dice set for free.

As for this week’s post, we thought we’d complement the spooky dice of last week with spooky character ideas for Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition. Here are some subclasses that lend themselves well to the season.

Barbarian: Path of the Ancestral Guardian

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

This Barbarian subclass has you draw on the power of warriors who came before you. When you’re in combat, you can call upon spirits to appear alongside you on the battlefield. These spirits help buff your allies, reduce the damage you take, and deal extra damage to your foes. You also learn to call on them to cast augury or clairvoyance, allowing you to see without being present and to receive omens of the future.

Bard: College of Whispers

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

By far the creepiest bard college, the College of Whispers empowers you to use fear and deception to pursue your goals. Your mental manipulation allows you to masquerade as a person who has died, and you gain access to basic information that they had while they lived. You can deal extra psychic damage, frighten other humanoids in your midst, and even exploit people’s deepest secrets to make them serve you for eight hours at a time.

Cleric: Death Domain

Dungeon Master’s Guide

Billed as a villainous subclass in the Dungeon Master’s Guide, clerics of the Death Domain often follow gods associated with not only death, but pain and suffering too. These gods reward you with an extra necromancy cantrip and the ability to target two creatures with it instead of one, the ability to deal extra necrotic damage and ignore resistance to necrotic damage. You can later target an additional creature with a necromancy spell at later levels.

Druid: Circle of Spores

Guildmaster’s Guide to Ravnica

Spore druids view death as part of the natural cycle of life and do not fear it or the undead. In fact, your comfort with the undead gives you access to thematic Circle Spells, including animate dead. You can also deal extra necrotic damage to your enemies, give yourself temporary hit points, and bring a dead person back as a zombie under your command. You also gain immunity to four different conditions at 14th level.

Fighter: Echo Knight

Explorer’s Guide to Wildemount

You can summon shades of yourself from timelines that never played out. These shades, or your echoes, help you in battle and you can make attacks with through them, switch places with them, see through their eyes and hear with their ears, use them to defend your party members, and more. The echo’s appearance is a ghostly grey translucent image of yourself.

Monk: Way of the Long Death

Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide

As a monk who follows the Way of the Long Death, you’re fascinated with death and dying: the concept, the process, the moment—all of it. Your interest in death grants you temporary hit points, the ability to frighten other creatures, and the ability to be reduced to 1 hit point instead of 0 hit points. Your touch can also inflict a hefty amount of necrotic damage.

Paladin: Oathbreaker

Dungeon Master’s Guide

Another subclass intended for villains, the Oathbreaker paladin is a paladin who has abandoned their sacred vow in favour of a darker purpose. When you break your oath, you gain some cool Oath Spells, including hellish rebuke and inflict wounds, you can control the undead, frighten enemies, increase your damage output, and gain resistance to nonmagical weapon damage. At 20th level, you can also impose disadvantage on attack rolls against you by cloaking yourself in shadows.

Ranger: Gloom Stalker

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

These rangers can be found lurking in the shadows, weeding out threats in the darkness. They are at home in dungeons, the Underdark, and in dimly lit forests. Your experience in the gloom gives you a bonus to initiative, Darkvision, an extra attack, and the ability to impose disadvantage on enemy attacks against you.

Rogue: Assassin

Player’s Handbook

Assassins are hired expert killers, trained in the art of murder rounded out with poison, stealth, and disguise. You gain proficiency with the disguise kit and the poisoner’s kit, advantage on enemies who haven’t had a turn in combat yet, automatic crits on creatures you surprise, the ability to create convincing disguises, and even double your attack damage.

Sorcerer: Shadow Magic

Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

As a sorcerer with their origins in the Shadowfell, there is a darkness within your soul. Thanks to your lineage, you have 120 feet of Darkvision, the ability to cast the spell darkness, the ability to drop to 1 hit point instead of 0 hit points, a hound of ill omen at your beck and call, the ability to teleport in shadows, and an umbral form at 18th level, with resistance to all damage except force and radiant.

Warlock: The Fiend

Player’s Handbook

You made a deal with an evil being from the lower planes of existence. Your fiendish patron grants you an expanded spell list with fiery spells prominent among them, temporary hit points when you reduce a foe to 0 hit points, the ability to add 1d10 to an ability check or saving throw, situational resistance to damage types of your choice, and the ability to yeet creatures through Hell. Literally.

Wizard: School of Necromancy

Player’s Handbook

Wizards of this school manipulate the life force of living creatures, mixing it with the forces of death and undeath. If you choose this school of magic, you can copy necromancy spells into your spellbook at half the time and cost, temporary hit points upon killing a creature with a spell, animate dead but more powerful, resistance to necrotic damage, and the ability to command undead.

Top row, L-R: Ether, Ember, Bloodstone Nebula

Middle row: Ametrine, Garnet Nebula, Black Diamond Nebula

Bottom row: Citrine Layered, Dangerous Fire, Desert

Greetings, readers!

This month, we at Little Dragon Corp are celebrating Hallowe’en alongside our very own Little Dragon Gabriel’s third birthday! Just use the code GABRIEL for 15% off your order on either the Little Dragon Corp or Dragon TCG Crystal Commerce site. When you place your order, specify 1, 2, or 3 in the notes section for a free mystery dice set.

This promotion lasts until October 31, so there’s still time to grab some dice in time for your game night.

If you’re not sure which dice to add to your collection, here are some of our favourite Hallowe’en creations.


The rich blue hues and striking white ink of these dice evoke the dark skies and full moon of the witching hour. The sprinkle of glitter is a gorgeous touch and suggests a constellation of possibilities for your story.


Bring the mood of a smouldering fire to your game with the deep, ashen reds of this set. Whether it be time for your party to make camp and scare each other silly with ghost stories, or time to act in the aftermath of a raging forest fire, these dice will light up your table like nothing else.

Bloodstone Nebula

The murky, translucent green mixed with red and the shimmering silver ink of the Bloodstone Nebula dice make for a mysterious combination. Is it blood in the forest, or a strange substance afloat in the swamp? Either way, it’s definitely haunted.


First available as a stretch goal from our wildly successful Hidden Gem Dice Kickstarter, these stunning dice capture the jewel tones of ametrine. The bright orange and smoky purple are reminiscent of traditional Hallowe’en colours, ensuring that these dice are a treat to roll.

Garnet Nebula

These dice are one of our founder Colette’s favourite sets. The contrasting opaque and transparent reds swirl together like drops of blood in water, making for a sinister addition to your table. Just make sure it’s the blood of your enemies and not your own blood, of course.

Black Diamond Nebula

Another of Colette’s favourites, the ghostly black diamond set has the most stunning swirls of all the dice we’ve made so far. If you’re heading into the mists this season, bring these with you—they may just be the difference between life and death.

Citrine Layered

Nothing says “I ain’t afraid of no ghost” quite like these striking dice. If you’re strolling into an encounter and don’t care who knows you’re there, announce your arrival with this bright yellow set.

Dangerous Fire

The bold turquoise complements the warm red and orange in this very yummy-looking set. With glitter in the mix, it’s easy to mistake these dice for sugared candy. Just be sure not to eat them by accident.


Although not a common setting for Hallowe’en adventures, the desert is a terrifying place to be stuck. With harsh weather and nothing else around for miles, it’s dangerous to go alone—take this sandy set with you.

We’re pleased to announce Dragon’s Digest, the Little Dragon Corp blog. This is where we will post updates about our store and news from around the dice/tabletop world. We’ll also showcase different dice sets of our own creation and we’ll be sharing the stories behind them. Dragon’s Digest will also be a spot for fun dice facts and will give you insight into the lesser-known scientific aspects of dice gaming.

We’re also looking to feature character profiles of player-characters sent in by our readers—that’s you! If you’ve ever wanted more people to know about your character and the incredible adventures they have been on, you’ll have the chance to share them with the Little Dragon Corp community. The details about the submission process will be available on Dragon’s Digest once we’re ready to accept submissions.

Dragon’s Digest is managed by Sebastian, who is our resident blogger. They are a writer, model, and fledgeling voice actor based in Toronto. Sebastian is an avid tabletop gamer and is the author of Lake of Secrets, which is a mystery-driven dungeon crawl for D&D 5e. They contributed two adventures to the Chilling Tales from the Whispering Wind anthology (coming soon to DMs Guild), which contains stories appropriate for the Icewind Dale setting that are a race against time.

We’re excited to launch this blog and we can’t wait to delight you with our posts.

In the meantime, we hope you’re keeping well and staying safe.

Be sure to check back here for next week’s blog post, which shows off some of our favourite spooky dice sets for Hallowe’en!
