Darvinham United FC

So last night I was watching the NBA playoffs (Lakers/Nuggets) and they mentioned the name of the Lakers coach "Darvin Ham". My wife piped in to say "that sounds like the name of an English town..."

So I went to "A.I." (can we stop calling it that yet?) to create a fictional history, crest, grounds, and kit.


Darvinham United FC has a rich and storied history that dates back to its founding in 1898. Here's an overview of the club's history:

Challenges and Resurgence (1990s-2000s): The 1990s brought challenges for Darvinham United FC as financial difficulties and changes in management affected the team's performance. However, the club managed to bounce back in the early 2000s with new investment, leading to a period of stability and success on the field.

Harlan Crow: A Dukes Of Hazzard villain?

Went to ChatGPT to have it create an episode of The Dukes Of Hazzard with Harlan Crow starring as the big villain for the episode. ChatGPT did NOT disappoint...

Title: "Dukes of Hazzard: Hazard County Showdown"


In this thrilling episode of "Dukes of Hazzard," the resilient Duke brothers find themselves facing their most formidable foe yet, as Harlan Crow, a cunning big city developer, sets his sights on encroaching upon Hazard County. As Hazard County's pristine landscapes and tight-knit community face imminent destruction, an unlikely alliance is formed between Boss Hogg and the Duke cousins, Bo and Luke, as they team up to protect their beloved home.

The episode begins with Hazard County in a state of shock and uproar as news spreads of Harlan Crow's ambitious plan to bulldoze the picturesque areas of the county. Boss Hogg, the self-serving and conniving county commissioner, realizes that even he cannot outmaneuver Crow's influence and wealth alone. Recognizing the threat to his own power, Boss Hogg reluctantly reaches out to the Duke boys, who have a reputation for being Hazzard County's last line of defense.

Initially skeptical of Boss Hogg's intentions, Bo and Luke decide to hear him out when they witness firsthand the destruction caused by Crow's ruthless development projects. Along with their trusty car, the General Lee, they embark on a mission to protect their hometown.

Together, Boss Hogg and the Duke cousins devise a daring plan to expose Crow's illegal activities and rally the community against his encroachment. They gather evidence, uncovering a web of corruption and deceit that goes far beyond simple land development. Along the way, they encounter various obstacles and face danger as Crow's henchmen do everything in their power to stop them.

As the day of reckoning approaches, Hazard County unites behind the Dukes and Boss Hogg. Citizens who were once at odds with each other come together in a show of strength and determination, proving that their love for their home is stronger than any outside threat.

In a climactic showdown, the Dukes, Boss Hogg, and the people of Hazard County confront Harlan Crow and his cronies head-on. Using their wits, courage, and the iconic General Lee, they expose Crow's misdeeds to the public, forcing him to retreat with his tail between his legs.

With Hazard County saved from Crow's clutches, Boss Hogg and the Duke boys find a newfound respect for each other, recognizing the value of collaboration in the face of adversity. As the episode comes to a close, Hazard County celebrates their victory and looks forward to a brighter future, where their traditions, land, and community are preserved for generations to come.

"Dukes of Hazzard: Hazard County Showdown" is an action-packed episode that highlights the importance of unity, resilience, and fighting for what you believe in. Through a mix of adventure, humor, and heart, it exemplifies the spirit of Hazard County and the unwavering determination of its beloved heroes, the Duke family.

Fun with D&D C-C-C-Combos

"A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”

One of my two current D&D characters is Jimmy Stoneford, a P.I. who thought maybe adventuring would pay the bills better than tracking down cheating husbands and two-bit con men.

He's a level 3 Vagabond. Vagabond is a custom class available on DMs Guild, and the creator happens to be my CampDragon DM and so allows usage of his custom classes. 

At 3rd level a really cool combo came together. Wanted to outline it here because it was so much fun to actually get to use it in a game last session.

The fun thing is that in CampDragon there's a something called inheritance, where you can retire an older higher level character and your new character can get something from the retired one - even a feat!

I took the Crusher feat from my retired monk. This allows me to, when I deal bludgeoning damage, push them back 5'. Jimmy uses a mace. So that's step 1. 

Step 2 is that Vagabonds have a nifty thing called Knacks. Knacks are like bits of knowledge that you pick up throughout your life (and can basically give you abilities that span the traditional D&D classes). At 3rd level I chose the Arcane Spell Knack 

Arcane Spell Knack gives you access to a couple spells and a cantrip from either Sorcerer or Wizard spells. For my cantrip I chose Booming blade.

Finally Step 3, my Vagabond has a "vocation" of Guardian. It's basically a sub-class. A cool feature of Guardians is Protector. 

Protector is fun because, as a bonus action, you can generate an area around you with a radius of your reach (5' for Jimmy) that is difficult terrain AND allows you to take a reaction to attack a creature who enters that area.

You can see where this is going, right? 

1. Jimmy makes a bludgeoning attack with his mace + Booming Blade and hits.

2. Crusher pushes the enemy back 5' on a hit

3. Now the enemy has to choose whether they want to get up in my business of their own volition. If they move to attack me, they take Booming Blade damage + I get a reaction to attack them again (assuming I haven't used my reaction for the round yet).  And on that reaction, since it's not part of my turn, I can push them back AGAIN.

Now this only really works against enemies that have a 5' reach. But when it works it's GREAT. If the first hit lands that triggers all this, and the move back to me they'll have to use 10' of movement (Protector). If my reaction attack hits, and I push them back again, that's another 10' of movement they'll have to burn. 

I got to use this combo in my last session with Jimmy and it was super fun to tank and push a Wraith Lord around like a boss (even though I was one lucky CON save away from being irrevocably dead). 

I highly recommend the Vagabond class. It's insanely flexible, allowing you to build a PC to suit your and the party's needs as a campaign evolves. The author also has a number of other custom classes that look like a ton of fun as well.

Monty Python as D&D Characters

Used Google's Bard AI this time to create the character classes, but did a little tweaking because a Dragonborn Terry Gilliam was exceedingly difficult to create in Midjourney. 😬

John Cleese is a human cleric.

Eric Idle is a half-elf bard.

Michael Palin is a dwarf fighter.

Terry Gilliam
is an elf wizard.

Graham Chapman is a gnome rogue.

Terry Jones is a human bard.

From Bard - Sure, here is a D&D campaign setting for the members of Monty Python:

The setting is a world called Montyland, which is a strange and wonderful place where anything is possible. The party can explore the many different lands of Montyland, including the Holy Grail Castle, the Castle Anthrax, and the Black Knight's Castle. They can also meet many of the famous characters from Monty Python, such as the Knights Who Say Ni, the French Taunter, and the Bridge of Death.

The party's goal is to find the Holy Grail, which is said to be hidden somewhere in Montyland. Along the way, they will have to overcome many challenges, such as the Knights Who Say Ni, the Bridge of Death, and the Castle Anthrax. However, they will also have many opportunities to have fun and adventure, such as exploring the many different lands of Montyland and meeting the many famous characters from Monty Python.

Here are some ideas for encounters that the party could face in Montyland:
  • The Knights Who Say Ni: The Knights Who Say Ni are a group of knights who are always looking for someone to say the word "Ni" to. If the party says the word "Ni", the Knights will attack them.
  • The Bridge of Death: The Bridge of Death is a bridge that the party must cross in order to reach the Holy Grail. The bridge is guarded by a fierce dragon, and the party will have to defeat the dragon in order to cross the bridge.
  • The Castle Anthrax: The Castle Anthrax is a castle that is full of beautiful women. However, the women are actually evil witches, and the party will have to be careful not to get turned into frogs or other creatures by the witches.

Paw Patrol as D&D Party

 And we're still on this kick - Paw Patrol characters as a D&D party using ChatGPT and Midjourney!

Marshall - Bard: Marshall is a fun-loving pup with a big heart and a love for music. His natural charisma and sense of humor make him a perfect fit for the Bard class.

Chase - Ranger: Chase is a skilled tracker and investigator, making him a natural fit for the Ranger class. His discipline and focus also make him a strong member of any party.

Skye - Druid: Skye is a brave and adventurous pup who loves nature. Her connection to the natural world makes her a perfect fit for the Druid class.

Rubble - Barbarian: Rubble is a tough and determined pup with a love for heavy lifting and construction. His brute strength and unyielding determination make him a natural fit for the Barbarian class.

SpongBob SquarePants as a D&D party

To continue a theme, I'm using ChatGPT and Midjourney to create D&D parties from pop culture. Let's move on to SpongeBob SquarePants!

Sure! Here's one way you could organize the characters from SpongeBob SquarePants as a D&D party:

SpongeBob SquarePants as the party's Bard: SpongeBob's boundless enthusiasm and love of music make him a natural fit for the Bard class. He could use his songs and jokes to inspire and motivate his fellow adventurers.

Patrick Star as the party's Paladin: Patrick's loyalty and sense of justice make him a perfect fit for the Paladin class. He could use his righteous powers to defend his friends and uphold the values of good.

Sandy Cheeks as the party's Ranger*: Sandy's expertise in karate and her love of adventure make her a great choice for the Ranger class. She could use her skills in tracking and wilderness survival to guide the party through dangerous terrain.
*I modified the Midjourney prompt to make Sandy a combo Ranger/Monk because she LOVES KARATE, obviously

Mr. Krabs as the party's Rogue: Mr. Krabs' love of money and his cunning nature make him a natural fit for the Rogue class. He could use his stealth and thievery skills to help the party acquire the treasure they seek.

Squidward Tentacles as the party's Wizard: Squidward's intelligence and love of art make him a great choice for the Wizard class. He could use his magical abilities to help the party overcome obstacles and defeat their enemies.

Plankton as the party's Warlock: Plankton's ambition and desire for power make him a good fit for the Warlock class. He could use his eldritch powers to help the party achieve their goals, but his loyalty to them may be questionable.
