    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 My players got advance drafts of my RPG, which was outdated a mere two or three days later.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!)

    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...

    Hey really good comments on the Ravenloft post I did. I'm going to look into the Heroes of Horror book and maybe use their taint rules there! Thanks again

    Greetings,

    I am a player LFG and based on your write up, I would like to play in a game run by you (I'm recovering from a bad DM...). I don't have a location suitable for a game, but am willing to travel a little for a good game.

    :^)

After the note's treasure!

by DMMike on 01-10-2011 at 12:07 PM
As the sun descended, the party mounted and prepared to ride southwest along the Imperial road. Sarah preferred to keep her word to Dru-gar and observe the eastern plain, but she
felt too vulnerable to voyage without her companions. Baraki started east, but turned when
he noticed that the party was going west.
"Where do you go?" he asked in the giant tongue.
Sarah explained, "my companions go to seek justice for this dead man. You may

Meet the cast!

by DMMike on 11-14-2010 at 09:52 PM
Sarah of Samerville is a young, bushy-eyebrowed, human disciple of Heironeous. Her parents sent her away from home when raiders took interest in her home village. Her parents told her that Heironeous would bring justice to her family and the raiders, but to ensure it, she devoted herself to that temple. Sarah detests violence, using spells and negotiation to prevent it whenever possible. Her heavy mace comes off her belt only when she's cornered. Cleric 1.

A Giant Escort

by DMMike on 11-01-2010 at 11:41 PM
The world moves on:

Shinny and Sarah ran to the elders' hall, where most of the clan had already gathered. The evenings were generally dedicated to story-telling, song, and dinner, but at this dusk, the giants milled about nervously. Soon the elders came out, with grim news.

"The Chief declares war on the Mage. The lands of the Toronaga are sacred, and we will not forfeit them to another tribe. Prophecy be damned!" declared Zarweth, the leader of clan Hussan.

The new beginning?

by DMMike on 10-11-2010 at 12:03 AM
Realizing that some players are more reactive than proactive, following is the non-player generated plot hook. If the party has enough interesting characters with enough interesting backstory, I'll use a more player-centric hook:


Converting the Giants


Sarah, the human missionary, cried with her head in her hands. In the dim candlelight of her hut, she silently hoped that someone, somewhere, would come near and share her feelings of frustration. The

Interlude 4 (+)

by DMMike on 10-18-2009 at 12:09 PM
Roberto, a 45 year old, strong, and battle-hardened ranger, knelt to the ground to check the tracks on the plain. Bolt, his eagle, fluttered her wings to maintain her perch on his leather-clad shoulder.

"Daylight wanes, and we still have yet to sight these giants," he pondered aloud. The other rangers gathered behind him. "There is no doubt they head toward the imperial town. These tracks prove it. But it is sorcery that keeps them from Bolt's eye."
