    I just read an interesting article on HotDQ - the campaign is intended to give D&D players a talking point, or something they can bond over. But my understanding is that the goal of the campaign is to kill Tiamat. You know, the dragon-god. Sure, it would be cool to meet fellow...

    Nice! May I steal that? My players got advance drafts of my RPG, which was outdated a mere two or three days later. (Hey, I tried!)

    DMMike replied to a thread D&D v.P1 in Dungeons & Dragons
    Over a year later, D&D 5E is out, but guess what? So is my game. Now I know, I started this with high hopes of getting lots of P&PG contributors. Well, some of their ideas are in there, such as: - rabkala's rule zero (rule zero) - rabkala's call for the rules being up front and accessible...

    This one's growing on me, mostly because my game doesn't have a critical hit rule: Exploding Dice: If you roll the highest result on a die, roll again and add it to the results.

    Now you're talking. Even bad ideas can become good ones. If the PCs are starting at low level, the first NPC you'll need is their trainer: the aging fighter/champion who has retired from adventuring, but is happy to share his knowledge about kicking butt with the PCs. They'll need his advice...

    I have a great new roleplaying game that is begging for a campaign! Let me start with the RPG: Modos RPG is a light rule system that lets players be highly creative with their characters. You use everything from a d4 to a d20, although you can choose to not roll if you'd like a safe result! ...

    Valid question, actually. Currently, the majority of physical damage can be reduced with armor. Which is to say that armor is equally effective against a fireball, poison gas, or an arrow (since all three affect the body physically). But I've been toying with the idea that as armor becomes...

    Version 1.21 is on the horizon. It includes a rules module (Star Worlds and Dragons), a handful more monsters, full rules catalog for ease of adding your own rules, updated FAQ, hyperlinks, and an easy-on-the-eyes page background. The Skyrim game in the August mini-con used these rules, and PC...

    Hi registered (and unregistered) players: I noticed that the game is listed, above, at being 75% roleplaying and 25% combat. While roleplaying should probably read "non-combat," I realized that the game is still a bit heavy on the combat side, and could run beyond our 3-hour time limit if I...

    I don't see anything wrong with creating the histories, back stories and mythology, even if you never reveal that info to your players outright, you can use it for motivations of your NPCs. There are mysteries about my world that I've never revealed to my players and I've been using the base idea...

    I usually just write up minor details about my world, whether it be locations or denizens, whatever. Then as the players interact with the game world, I expand those details as required. Quite often, I've got a specific direction to go with my notes, but doing it in this way, it allows me to modify...

What are you looking for?:
I'm not currently looking for a group, as I found a great bunch of players through pen and paper. However, what I look for in a group are people who are laid back and just have fun with the game, some kind of role playing, and a DM who isn't so hard core and lets his/her players progress through their story instead of forcing them along it.
About Me
Biography:
I am currently playing in a D&D and Star wars Campaign that is on a rotating schedule. I use paper and pen to keep in touch with group members and as a way to find other players who might be a good match for our group.
