Homebrew D&D made easy
The Homebrewery makes the creation and sharing of authentic looking Fifth-Edition homebrews easy. It uses Markdown with a little CSS magic to make your brews come to life.
Try it! Simply edit the text on the left and watch it update live on the right.
Editing and Sharing
When you create your own homebrew you will be given a edit url and a share url. Any changes you make will be automatically saved to the database within a few seconds. Anyone with the edit url will be able to make edits to your homebrew. So be careful about who you share it with.
Anyone with the share url will be able to access a read-only version of your homebrew.

This tool will always be free, never have ads, and I will never offer any "premium" features or whatever.
PDF Printing works best in Chrome. If you are having quality/consistency issues, try using Chrome to print instead.
After clicking the "Print" item in the navbar a new page will open and a print dialog will pop-up.
- Set the Destination to "Save as PDF"
- Set Paper Size to "Letter"
- If you are printing on A4 paper, make sure to have the "A4 page size snippet" in your brew
- In Options make sure "Background Images" is selected.
- Hit print and enjoy! You're done!
If you want to save ink or have a monochrome printer, add the Ink Friendly snippet to your brew before you print
Big things coming in v3.0.0
With the next major release of Homebrewery, v3.0.0, this tool will no longer support raw HTML input for brew code. All brews made previous to the release of v3.0.0 will still render normally.

Not quite Markdown
Although the Homebrewery uses Markdown, to get all the styling features from the PHB, we had to get a little creative. Some base HTML elements are not used as expected and I've had to include a few new keywords.
- Horizontal Rules are generally used to modify existing elements into a different style. For example, a horizontal rule before a blockquote will give it the style of a Monster Stat Block instead of a note.
- New Pages are controlled by the author. It's impossible for the site to detect when the end of a page is reached, so indicate you'd like to start a new page, use the new page snippet to get the syntax.
- Code Blocks are used only to indicate column breaks. Since they don't allow for styling within them, they weren't that useful to use.
- HTML can be used to get just the right look for your homebrew. I've included some examples in the snippet icons above the editor.
Images must be hosted online somewhere, like imgur. You use the address to that image to reference it in your brew. Images can be included 'inline' with the text using Markdown-style images. However for background images more control is needed.
Background images should be included as HTML-style img tags. Using inline CSS you can precisely position your image where you'd like it to be. I have added both a inflow image snippet and a background image snippet to give you exmaples of how to do it.
If you'd like to credit The Homebrewery in your brew, I'd be flattered! Just reference that you made it with The Homebrewery.
