    As a huge fan of the Bard, I really love this blog!

    You definitely can get a lot of campaign personality, as well as character “flavor” from borrowing from a source as prolific and dynamic as Shakespeare’s works – and well worth considering to add something special to a D&D game. Well done!

    Shakespeare can make any game better. There was 3rd party materials for 3rd Edition that was based on Shakespeare’s plays.

    However, Shakespeare wrote for a different medium. In a roleplaying game, all the PCs are protagonists. They don’t exactly take the other roles in the story (there’s at least 8 roles for a full story to be made).

    In a Shakespeare play, the characters all play one of 8 roles, even if you can’t tell which is which.
