    Thanks Jerrod! Star Trek was seriously bad ass! I loved it and I'm more a Star Wars fan than a Trekkie....but dear god, it was good

    Hey There Otakar! Hey thanks about the blogs...I started it really to help other dms with their games, give them some fresh ideas from an "outside" guy, and maybe players a glimpse of what I like to do as a DM I'm glad you like reading it. I thought when I put up that sucker I'd have not a single comment at all.

How did they become heros?

by Otakar on 11-09-2010 at 09:10 AM
I skipped 3E but as I play 4E I find that the characters are downright tough! I pit the 4E first level characters vs monsters as recommended in the DMG and modules and I cringe. In my 1E and 2E mindset these characters are going to get their [COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]Clocks Cleaned!

[COLOR=rgb(0, 0, 0)]When they play within their role (controller, defender, striker, leader) they manage to always come out on top. My new players really seem to enjoy this but I had one old-schooler

Monitizing my passion II

by Otakar on 09-09-2010 at 10:36 AM
I wrote earlier about monitizing my passion for gaming. Since I retired from the Coast Guard I haven't really done any gaming. Between working on my home and family I haven't made the time for it. I hear talk of table top gaming dying and I can see why. I can get my "fix" by playing Fate on the PC for 45 minutes without involving anyone. I can also live vicariously through others in the community by reading their blogs. I pulled a couple of old role playing games off of Abandonia.com that

The late Malcolm S. Forbes said, "The biggest mistake people make in life is NOT making a living at doing what they most enjoy."

When I think of my hobbies I consider fishing, working in the garden, working on the house, watching UFC, and playing computer games. None of those compare to my first thought; role playing games. I enjoy the stink out of them. I like reading about them, owning them, getting with a few people to play and running them. I'm not a writer like some
