  1. getting somebody to play your BBEG(big,bad evil guy)

    I have been fortunate in the past to have somebody play an big boss type. He couldn't play in my game but wanted to make a contribution. I let him play the head of the thieves guild, I gave him information as to what I had and he ran with it.

    He thought of things that I hadn't and it made a difference in the style and tenor of the campaign. I realized that he had taken some of the control of the campaign and I found it refreshing that I also had to react as the law enforcement of ...

  2. city adventures

    I decided that I wanted to do a city adventure for the two games I am currently running. This marks a departure for me and my old group. We used to have a combination of things within the campaign.

  5. my house rules

    I think that every dm or ref does something different than the rules state. Here are some of mine. my game is 3.5 D&D

    Combat: I have inititiave rolled every round. I personally like the chaos that ensues with people sweating whether or not they will be in a bad pickel. Some claim it takes longer, we have been doing it for so long its second nature.

    For this current campaign, I used the actually con score + con modifier for starting hit points. It allowed me to ...
