  1. Using 1e Modules for 4e: On the Fly Powers

    Making Power on the Fly
    I talked about the 1e to 4e conversion in the previous post and noted the lack of power in the monsters besides their basic attacks. One of the aspects of 4e is the ability of DM's to create with monsters abilities they think would be a great challenges or story elements. I personally follow a more story aspect in DMing, as I am not a great strategist. So here are some on-the fly abilities I can apply to my monsters that require no real extra designing *i.e I am not ...
  2. Using 1e Modules for 4e: Quick and Dirty Conversion

    I was greatly influenced by the 1 page free game Searchers of the Unknown which premise was to create and play characters the same as monster stats for the purpose of playing 1e modules. I was nostalgic in the old days when a monster stat was two or three lines rather than a mountain of information, and in 4e, a table of information that took up space.

    The point of this exercise is to allow a DM to use a 1e module to play a 4e game ...
  3. Tsojcanth II update

    by , 07-25-2012 at 08:15 AM (cplmac's campaign logs & blogs)
    At this time there are 5 people signed up to play in the new (second) running of the "Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth" campaign.

No electronics at the table, it will be difficult enough to concentrate while playing in a game store. Games will be every two weeks, on Saturdays, gathering between 11am and Noon. Location will be given out to players when joining.

  5. Maybe running a game ...

    The GM of my current group wants to take a break, so I've volunteered to run something. Of the five billion options I presented, these seem to be the most popular:

    1. Eldritch Skies, which I reviewed incompetently on a couple of weeks ago.
    2. RuneQuest (Mongoose Legend, possibly upgrading to RQ6 when it comes out), setting either Elric of Melnibone or Pavis in Glorantha. (Although I've yet to read Age of Treason, and perversely I'm itching to try something Malkioni.)
