Hello all, so I have recently joined your forum here, and while I've only had one post, I can already appreciate your community and the tools you give each other to find other players. I decided that while it may not be an exciting topic, I thought it might be interesting to follow myself from the beginning of my pen and paper gaming and maybe document my progression.
I got into Dungeons and Dragons by non other than the popular web comic, Penny Arcade. After I listened to the podcasts
Today I am going to take you through the temple, from the entrance to the main stage. By the time the heroes finish off the main stage, they should level up.

The best nation on Earth deserves the best heroes for its defense.

Some GM/DM/ST Advice:
There are times when you are running a game, and you set up the great encounter facing the big bad evil guy and the guy is about to spill the beans on his master plans.

This will solve a lot of issues.
