    Give me your thoughts on the type of articles you would like to see (the ones that appear on the home page). I'll be heavily invested at first in writing them, with the intention of bringing in other industry-insiders to provide the insight and knowledge. Anything and everything from game design to...

    I'm with Palpatim, landing on the opposite to the lighted side of this island seems the thing to do...I'm sure Yrisz would like to sleep through the trip, but the excitement of possible being caught exposed on the water again would no doubt prove too exiting for sleep. Are we going to rest again...

    If anyone can read languages (or has some effect which allows that, then i say we try to decipher the text; unless the text has some clear warning or puzzle, then i'd say let them "kiri" with it. ^^

    Makes me wish that my home computer would let me onto the Chat. Don't think it would be good for me to be on the Fire Department computer to run a game in the P&PG Chat. Guess I will just have to wait till I can get a new computer and faster internet access. When that eventually happens, perhaps I...

    Nah, we should save that, unless we are towards the end of a given exploration period and haven't used it yet. If not, we'll just rely on the augury and danger sense. Perhaps a study via detect magic and detect evil, then kiri it. ^^

    It probably wouldn't matter a great deal...the only thing it really does is add more importance to two underutilized attributes - CHA and to a lesser degree WIS. Funnily enough, in the re-write I'm working on at the moment, I'm doing away with XP altogether. Instead levels are gained simply by...

    I'm not sure if that's the ultimate goal of the campaign arch. It may lead to that, but it's about the process of discovery leading to that point.

    Concerned with unfolding the mysteries of using divine light to heal the strange wonder that is Pradize, Yrisz miss much of the early escalation between Rogur and Noxias.

    Morashitar gets all credit for this idea and production. I'll find a way to reward him properly, even if he rebukes my attempts! That said, let's see if we can nurture this idea and keep it going.

    Hi Farcaster, just wanted to say this is a very well established site and I'm very impressed. I also thank you because this site will help me find players in my area!

    Farcaster, please forgive me for posting this here, but I've tried PMing you several times recently and was never answered any of them, so maybe my account won't send PM's?

    I'm sorry if I've annoyed you in any way, I know I've screwed up and such, but I hope you understand I've genuinely tried to be good, it was never my intention to cause any harm.

    I've patiently waited out my infraction time, but when I tried to join the chat (for a game a friend of mine scheduled, Juno-Ome to be specific) it says I'm still banned.

    I agree PM's would be a better place to discuss this, so please PM me a response. Again, I'm sorry, but I have no where else to turn.

The Gatekeeper Campaign Log

by Farcaster on 10-14-2011 at 07:14 PM
I kicked off a new campaign about a year and a half ago called "The Gatekeeper," and I have had the extremely good fortune of having a published WotC designer and author at the table with us, Mr. Erik Scott de Bie. Erik, I have come to find out, is a tenacious writer. In the first few weeks of our game, he actually sent me more post game followup than all my players combined have sent me in the following year.

So, I asked him if he'd focus that insatiable pen of his towards

The Year of Blue Fire: Gearing Up

by Farcaster on 12-13-2010 at 02:52 PM
So, our first game for the Year of Blue Fire campaign is coming up this Friday. Iíve got the basic concept together for the first adventure, but I still need to sit down and stat out potential encounters and spend some time jotting down key locations and information. I usually work well under pressure and it is a first level game, so Iím not too worried about it.

Iíve decided to try out logging the campaign on Obsidian Portal. I created a campaign there last night. So far, Iíve only

The Year of Blue Fire - Campaign Background

by Farcaster on 11-22-2010 at 04:14 PM
I am starting up another campaign soon. I may be a little crazy for trying to run two games simulateously and "assist-DM" in a third, but I just couldn't resist when my buddy asked me to run a game for a group he was putting together.

Unlike most games I have run in the past, I'm not coming to the table with a campaign idea already in hand. Instead, I am working with the players to create their backgrounds and then I am going to build the campaign organically from their

Have you checked out d20Pro?

by Farcaster on 04-22-2010 at 03:58 PM
d20pro pushed out an update today. Version 2.1 is out of beta and available for download.

You know, I recently ran a 4th edition demo game using d20pro. It's actually a pretty sweet little app for running remote games, and even for using as a digital replacement for your battlemat at your regular face-to-face games as well. It was designed specifically for the d20 OGL ruleset and has a set of plugins to integrate nicely with Pathfinder. There are also patches for 4th edition, and

Why I'm Starting to Consider the iPad...

by Farcaster on 03-01-2010 at 11:00 AM
A few short weeks ago when the iPad was first announced, I was not among the throng of excited Apple groupies who had already made up their minds before Steve Jobs took one step onto the podium that I would be buying this device no matter what it did. I've never quite understood the mentality of if it has XYZ sticker, I simply must have it, and that extends to the iWhatever-the-Hell-They-Come-Up-with-Next. I was a late adopter to the iPod, simply because I never wanted to spend
