    Sorry, this was a game day for me so this is going to be a VERY short post as I'm super late on sleep, and work has been a trick affair of late, i.e. not favoring light sleep. That said, I'm leaning towards option 2, like I said earlier, if option 2 doesn't pan out, option 1 should be still...

    I think that you all are totally daft. I think Umi has quite clearly illustrated this area as a "enter if you dare" zone. I'm not un-equivicly saying that there isn't profit in this room. But profit or not, it is going to hurt a lot, cleaver distraction or otherwise. My vote is bypass this room...

    Or we can throw one of our expensive Sun Rods into the room, they don't burn hot and have the added bonus of being throwable, thus allowing greater distance in our vision. As for weaponizing the swarm, or even giving it great incentive to go out into the hall to eat us, I personally suggest we...

    "Well, if we are indeed going back, we aught to do it together, tricky as that might prove" Yrisz whispers to the others, looking sideways towards Noxias as if to test if his ban on her speech might still remain in effect.

    Of course, there is always the list of "cursed" items which grant large bonuses that reverse upon the performance of a particular action, which certain clever players go to great lengths to avoid said actions, leading to certain hillarious sequences in game.

    Hey i recently moved to the Seattle area. Renton to be exact. I, like you, have been DMing for my whole dnd career. Granted its only been 6 years but i love it. But, unlike you, i prefer to be a player. I usually ended up DMing because the most recent regular group i had was 4 16 year olds, so they didnt really have anything on my creative abilities and imaginative capacity. That mite seem weird but i was 19 at the time. Im almost 21 now. I also take time out of my day, anytime i am asked, to teach someone the great game of dnd. I have even taught a few cheerleaders to play, on of which gamed with my group for 6 months. But i need to get into a group again. So drop me a line please

    hi there!
    i'm a long-time fan of the site, but never had much reason to post until now.
    i have a new topic for the "ask a GM" thread, but i guess only Admin. can start threads

    anyhow, i'm a newbie DM playing d&d 3.5, so maybe this is a dumb Q, but i'm really having trouble figuring out CRs.
    i read as much as i could find on it, but it's confusing!
    according to the DMG, the CR = the average of the party lvl. so a CR 9 creature is a good challenge for 4 9th lvl. chars.
    if that held true, the same creature would be a good challenge for a solo 9th lvl. char. or 10 9th lvl. chars.

    it would be so much simpler if the lvls. were not averaged. it would not be a cure-all, of course; you would need lvl. limits for encounters.
    ex.: 50 goblins vs. 1 lich

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
