DM Resources

I found this blog that, although it's aimed at D&D campaigns, really has some great ideas that could be applied to a wide swath of games.

Here is a neat website full of DM resources. Most of this stuff is descriptions of things like: Strange loot, dungeon rooms, doors, unusual creatures, etc. It can really take some of the heavy lifting off you when your players ask about a door you have written no description of.

If anyone needs help picking some random magic items with weak and strange properties http://lordbyng.net/inspiration/results.php is a good site. Most of the item properties are situational, some are decent. I have used the table it generates from to hand pick some interesting ones that might fit well with my players.

Great website with dozens of tools for DM's who need to do anything from generating an NPC or shop, to keeping a calendar of events in your world!

I have not been DMing long, the game I have here is the only one I have DM'd in (and I have only played a couple of 'sessions' total across all the games I have been in) so role-playing or strategizing as the monsters is tough for me.

http://themonstersknow.com has been a useful resource for me, giving me insight into tactics monsters or groups of monsters would use. This guy has covered a lot of different types from the official 5e books (MM, VGtM, MToF) and I can't recommend it enough!
