In pre-written adventures for Dungeons & Dragons and other RPGs there are almost always chunks of text that the GM can read aloud to the players. Frequently, this text is written in shaded boxes.
dScryb, a new website, say they’re the purveyors of finely crafted boxed text.
How does dScryb work?
Professional writers contribute boxed text to the site where it waits for a GM to find from a search or by looking through categories. dScryb has a free tier which offers up 150 free scenes, but the bulk of the content requires a subscription model.
A no-holds-barred access account costs $7.99 a month, but you can go lower than that and subscribe to just certain content. Places ($3.99) and Monsters ($1.99) are currently available.
dScryb update #1
The most obvious improvement after the site’s first major update is the speed of it. It’s much faster, and this is important if you’re trying to use dScryb on the fly to fill in blanks as your players do something unexpected.
After the update, the site is better on mobile as well.
dScryb now has a nearby system of tags. While dScryb is not an encounter generator, this nearby tag system means you can get some suggestions for content that might be related.
