After Action Report: Bridge on the River DIE!

This week at Adventurer’s League, I decided to use a set piece and make an encounter that would actually be memorable, actually be a little threatening, and would actually give me around in combat for a change.

RPG dreams: A new system each time

I’ve had this dream for a while: to find a group flexible enough and willing to put in the effort to run 52 RPG systems in a year, a new one each week. I haven’t found that group yet, but as I was talking to my not-quite-a-boss at the gamestore yesterday, he counter-offered with a store event idea: 12 games in twelve systems in 12 months.

I know this is not a complete conversion. If there are any egregious errors, let me know and I will make some changes/additions. Use this however the heck you want.

What I Did Wrong at D&D Adventure’s League Episode 3

Sleep deprivation is a weird thing. Sometimes, you run a game with little sleep and its horrible. Other times, you come up with the exact perfect idea on the way to the game, and, while you can’t assemble it perfectly in your mind due to the aforementioned sleep scarcity, you instantly know that it is an amazing idea and needs to be acted upon. I had the second happen to me tonight. However, first we have to talk about stuff I did the previous weeks, including everything I did wrong since I last wrote one of these.
