  1. first online chat game part two

    This is a continuation of my impressions about online chat from the July 14 blog. Now that I have some additional experience doing a chat game I have taken some additional steps to try to improve and speed up the experience. I decided to use maps and posted them to the group site and had everybody reference them for combat. This is working out ok. I have the maps gridded so the players can at least have a common reference. There are a couple of drawback is one, the players have far more information ...

  2. experimenting

    When I decided to reboot and restart my 3.5 game, I had decided to do some experimentation with it. The group had been with me for a period of years and I thought we were getting a little stale. We added new players to the group to shake up the pecking order as a start.
    What I did was to take some of the Malhavoc press books, when the sky falls and when a god dies as a start. I had a meteor strike Beldorn, my homebrew setting. The consequences from this were that the arcanosphere, ...

  5. successful campaigns and styles of dming

    The other night we had a spirited discussion on the chat room about styles of dming and successful campaigns.

    The first will be about successful campaigns. I believe that we can all agree that everybody should be having fun but is there more beyond that? One of the guys said although everybody died they were having fun. I wondered since the group all died the objective of the campaign was not met. To me a campaign that is successful is one where everybody has fun and a goal is met. ...
