Mouse Guard beat D&D 4E for Best RPG at Origins over the weekend. That's just fantastic. Dominion, Pandemic, and Conflict of Heroes also won in their respective categories.
I didn't know Obsidianportal existed till today when I got the email that our site "allied" to them. Fortunate for me, I checked it out and found a really cool tool to all of us dms out there. Basically the site is a wiki of sorts that manages the information we type into it...I've messed around with it and here's mine only an hour.
Also, you might have noticed if you followed that link that I'm closing up my Ravenloft
I'll keep this weeks post shorter than my usual with just sharing the highlights before I start preparing for the next game.

characters canít use Perception to detect this trap
Additional Skill: Arcana
DC 30 : the character notices that Ireena is just an illusion, but the rest of the women are real
The best part of writing scary monsters is seeing how the group handles the situation. Though I'm happy with how I modified Strahd, modifing the EYE of Strahd gave me an equal satisfaction.
We go back to 7th level...at the original Expedition to Castle Ravenloft encounter named, "the crossroads", where they met the last remaining Paladin storming into battle against some murks (kinda like shadows)...but I played this encounter before...it's boring, it's kinda easy...and there
