Still working my way forward, Week 3 of game play features the introduction of our fourth and fifth players, the first mention of the Blue Fox, and marked the first “encounter ending spell” at shop D&D. Continue reading “What I Did Wrong at D&D: February 24th, 2016”
I’m trying to back fill all the Shop D&D/What I did wrong articles. So let’s roll back the clock to the middle of February, to the first game I ran on a Wednesday. Thursdays hadn’t been panning out, as my interested player was interested in the type of MTG they played on Thursdays. He was free Wednesdays, I had the day open, so I gave it a shot. We had three players and we never went back to Thursdays. Continue reading “What I Did Wrong at D&D: February 17th, 2016”
As I mentioned last week, we did a bit of playing in These Scattered Isles (TSI). It never really went as I planned, but its still helpful ground to build off of. And it’ll be helpful to designate what we want to save as we go forward…
This is the best super hero movie I have seen. It will have a place on my Shelf of Awesome. It is deserving of the title “Civil War.” It did not get a 10 on my scale. Read on to find out why.
So this week, being week 15 of Shop D&D, some players confronted me, saying they had been reading the blog. (Okay, ATM, they’re probably the only ones reading the blog- other than random bored people from Twitter) It was a weird feeling, that people had read what I had written, that things I used to say “Oh, I wrote about this thing I want to tell you” is now replyed with a “I know, I read it.” Its not a bad odd, but it is an odd. My fledgling popularity does not keep me from making mistakes, however! On to what you came here for! Continue reading “What I Did Wrong at D&D: June 15th, 2016”
These Scattered Isles (TSI) is a D&D setting we started using early 2015. It was half baked when we jumped into it, made a bit of a splash and, finally, with the group kind of falling apart, I decided to wrap it up. But the world itself was pretty cool and I’d love to run it again. But, one of the big things I knew was I would need to put a lot of work into it. That’s what this is. Continue reading “These Scattered Isles: Prepping a D&D Campaign Ep. 0: Mission statement”
So I was reading my Player’s HandBook this morning and realized I had been doing something wrong. Not in a gamebreaking way wrong, but its something that will change how I run exploration encounters and similar in the future. And when playing with my weekend group, I read some more stuff and realized this could be an article thing. So here we go! Continue reading “Things I Learned From Actually Reading the PHB Ep 1”
So I had an idea of taking a Magic: The Gathering booster pack, 15 cards, and generating an adventure based around it. Ideally, it’ll be an improv trick, 10 minutes, 15 cards, go! but for this first attempt, I’ll walk you through my thought process, and what I’m doing with it to try and determine if this is a viable challenge. Continue reading “D&D Experiment: Booster Pack Adventure”
This is week 14 of Shop D&D and as I’m still struggling with where we’re headed in the Ballad of the Blue Fox (Totes just came up with that. Is that a good title?) so I had planned to do a secondary thing. But that didn’t go to plan at all. Continue reading “What I did Wrong at D&D: June 8, 2016”
I get to play D&D tonight! As a Player! Yay!
