Take a ramble around D&D

I have a lot of D&D posts in the pipeline. The problem is, all of them are going to take work and research and time, all of which I don’t have or don’t want to commit right now. So, instead of floundering around at one of those this week, I’m going to give them the time they need to simmer, maybe add the spice of research and a fresh grinding of doing the work, and instead, serve up this as your entrée into random dnd blog-ness. It might be a bit of a ramble, but its a DND related ramble. That makes it okay. Continue reading “Take a ramble around D&D”

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. So I put a little bridge in… Continue reading “After Action Report: Bridge on the River DIE!”

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.

Handcrafted Heroes 2: The Death of Bonda

Last week, I rambled and ranted about making Bonda K’dock, my barbarian in a world of super heroes. Well, after all that effort of the post, and a week of rebuilding him from scratch, I regret to inform you, my reading public, that Bonda is DEAD.

What I Did Wrong at D&D: Adventurer’s League Ep 2

If my schedule works out right, it looks like I get to be involved with a lot of D&D games this week. 4 different tables, with me only needing to run two of them. So of course I’m thinking about spinning up a virtual table. Anyway, one is already over and done with and of course, with a game run by me, there must surely be some mistakes. So, here we go!

What I did Wrong at D&D Adventurer’s League Episode 1

I’ve been going to a local gamestore on Wednesdays to play tasty RPGs on about a weekly basis since February. Good times, great way to scratch the itch. It’s always been understood that I was a DM and could fill in when needed. And that hasn’t come up. Until now. Continue reading “What I did Wrong at D&D Adventurer’s League Episode 1”

What I did Wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 6

I used to be a lot better at getting these out every week. Maybe my non-family games were more intense, maybe I was less of a lazy bum. Maybe I’ve just learned enough about DMing that I don’t have anything interesting to report.

BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Yeah, I don’t believe that either! Continue reading “What I did Wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 6”

What I Did Wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 5

It’s interesting, writing these summaries of games previous, when half of my party reads them. I’ve had it happen before, but those games weren’t as involved with plots and stuff. So I have to talk about what happened, without actually giving away future plans and stuff. Continue reading “What I Did Wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 5”
