    well, since we're throwing links around, here are the 9 books given away by WOTC for free (3rd edition D&D). The all-in-one zip file is at the very bottom of the page, just scroll down - it's about 2 megs. these are text files, mind, and split up by chapter and section, roughly.

    OD&D or the more modern versions of Chainmail are great for very old school blast from the past play - simple if arbitrary options; and much is left up to player interpretation. 1st and 2nd ed are not quite the same beast, but are still good for a grognard experience, with 2nd being the more...

    Right...I was speaking about the Montane responsibilities. Running to work, but also if we are to confront her, should not Konstansz actually do it, as she has the authority while Yrisz doesn't. Don't get me wrong, I'll gladly manage it, but story wise it is a bit awkward.

    hmmm, i pulled that off the single combat vs dragon bit, only i think i was level 8 and it was a blue dragon, a step or two higher than an adult though. of course, i put a lot of prep into it, and i think the combat lasted three or four rounds. but i won, if barely. ^^

    personally i've always wanted to look good in a cape. ^^ based on my limited experiences and opportunities, i believe i favor the more victorian era opera capes, sometimes combined with a trench coat. somewhat holmesian or steampunk, i understand.

    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!
  3. View Conversation
    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 01:52 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 03:14 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 10:00 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
