    Hm, I never really drank the D&D kool-aid. My introduction to RPGs was Metagaming's Melee and Wizard. Maybe I should dust off my old The Fantasy Trip books? (Or Dark City Games' "Legends of ..." series.) Realistically, though, RuneQuest and Call of Cthulhu are the first games I truly fell in...

    So, I've come full circle. I'm back with my first love - D&D. This is my "why". It's important for me to share, as my hope is to provide insight into the mind of a habitual system-addict, manic seeker of the "perfect medium complexity depth because #feelings" RPG and perhaps help other...

    Hi all. I nuked my computer back to the stone ages putting a new OS on it (lucky for me I have a healthy habit of backing things up almost once a month), but I'm just getting my computer back online.

    Actually, I was rather hoping for a double short rest, if we can find a good place to do so. The first one for Yrisz to Maximize her Healing Words, giving one to Rogur and one to Konstansz. Derim doesn't need Yrisz help if he wants to heal to full using a healing surge. How does that sound?

    I love anything that helps make the game run more smoothly, and facilitates roleplaying. It seems cards and apps help take away these meta-distractions, so I'm all for them.

    those are some excellent thoughts. my original line of thinking on the out-of-range is that since it is different for different things, it is the point of unity where one simply will not and can not hit with a given attempt. the point of no return if you will. some games fail to define when...

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. I’ve 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 I’m not too worried about it.

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