  1. Shouldn’t Gamers Be Open Minded?

    I want to preface by saying that I think for the most part they are but some not so much. Being in any sort of fandom is an invitation for the public to criticize. At least that is what I have found. The reason this topic has come up for me personally is due to a recent disappointment. All this is regards to recruitment and belonging to a group.

    1. Within the pool of gamers out there, first you just gotta get a group/players that can meet with your schedule. That many times eliminates

  2. Session preparation and quest hooks

    A while back I discussed some concepts for creating adventures. These adventures are fairly short, I would equate them to a module in terms of game content. Which means, that it leaves you with some additional space in your campaign to fill up. There’s nothing wrong with creating bunches and bunches of adventure modules for the players to go through. The next real problem I faced was getting them to go there.

    Its easy enough to just have whoever they are working for send them ...
  3. black Pyramid of the ancient cloakers REMAKE (D&D 4e lvl 18-19): floors 3-4

    End of adventure. Again, did not stat out ancient cloakers, but the previous post described what to do.

    3 Floor 3

    21) Teleport room.
    This room will teleport to room 17.

  4. TOEE: return to the blog! Entering of the crater ridge mines.

    I know its been a while (~7 or so months), but somebody said they like my little conversion, and who am I to deny them! You never know, maybe I'll be able to run this puppy again.

    In any case, as a reminder, last time we just left Rastor and were headed towards the mines. My players were NOT subtle, so the main door defenses were able to shore up and prepare.

    So the alarm sounds in rooms 2-10. Rooms 2-5 were the "first" encounter. So will describe ...

  5. Designing Skill challenges

    Previously I rambled on about the ways in which I use skill challenges, and a bit about what lead me to that opinion. I’m still not done wasting time going on and on about these challenges. Having them lumped in with combat means that careful design of the challenges is key. Just like you can’t randomly grab monsters and drop them on the battlemat and expect the encounter to be any good, you can’t just toss in a skill challenge and expect it to work well.

    Obviously the first thing ...
