Historical References

From 1d4chan

This is a hub page for all of our pages on history. This is useful for DMs who want to bring a little more realism into their games, or else look for inspiration by finding some lesser-known feature or weapon that they can use. Or maybe you just want to educate yourself because history is really damn interesting.

Here we've got everything organized by category, so if you have an idea of what you're looking for, click the links below.
