    Rather than continuing to post piles of detail here (and anywhere else I'm recruiting), I'm trying to take advantage of Obsidian Portal's campaign management tools. You can find information here: https://a-simple-venture.obsidianportal.com/

    This game will now be an online game - as it pleases the players. Venue is right here in the P&PG chatroom. I modified the combat/roleplaying ratio. Note that for this game, "roleplaying" includes exploration, problem-solving, and social encounters. Finally, the easier to access, but less...

    Keeping the event as a "convention" will indeed take some work. However, minimal work will be needed to simply run a Chatroom Gameday. For my part, I'm ready to run another game, and manage my game's player registration as well. The Find or Advertise forum is actually a great place for this.

    It's probably not, actually. I just saw something saying that the campaign (adventure?) only takes PCs up to level 8 or 15. Not quite Tiamat-level, huh?

    Unfortunately, D&D is the main-stream game of choice, even when there are other systems out there that GMs prefer to use. There are enough D&D enthusiasts, that people can find a game with that system, even when you don't prefer it. Not trying to get into an edition war here, but another thought as...

    A quick spin around the interwebs reveals to me that most gamers in my area are looking to play 5th edition D&D. Which is not my game of choice. So I have to wonder: should I be looking outside my area? Who has had better luck finding an online game than an in-person game? Or a better...

    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...

    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...

The Skyrim game in the August mini-con used these rules, and PC...

    Okie dokie, well lemmie know if that's at all interesting to you... from my years of experience with D&D... its like D&D but better. More serious and at the same time less so, definately potentally funnier. Definately more deadly. It was based off of the older D&D rule structure and greatly improved.

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.
