A wonderful week has passed and I dearly hope you all had a great relaxing Memorial Day weekend. For me, I had the chance to pick up the Monster Manual 2 for 4th Edition. Rather than just give a full review...I'll simplify and say it's great...buy it if your a dm and you won't regret it.

So head over there (you can go there via the link on my profile page) and join up. We'd love to hear your thoughts, old game sessions, new ideas...etc.
Later this week (hopefully today) I'll post the second part of our last game session where my players had an interesting dinner to say the least with Strahd. Misunderstood vampire just trying to get by? Or truly the Devil Strahd the villagers think him to be? You decide...
