What I did wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 1

As part of one of those “family bonding” things, I was asked to run a game of D&D for my family. Since I’m a sucker for attention and love a game of D&D, no matter what side of the screen I’m on, I agreed to do the DMing. And, since I’m in noway perfect, I made mistakes. Welcome back to WidWad: What I Did Wrong at D&D (Family Edition). Continue reading “What I did wrong at D&D: Family Edition Ep 1”

Gothregel Primer: My thoughts on my open world, wilderness exploration game

Just about four weeks ago, I put out a call on my Facebook, wondering if people would be interested in an open table, wilderness exploration adventure. It received a fairly decent response, so I began my research, and started figuring out what I’d want in such an adventure. It turns out, unsurprisingly, that I signed myself up for a lot of work.¬† Continue reading “Gothregel Primer: My thoughts on my open world, wilderness exploration game”

A quick rating of the other 5e manuals

Hopefully, by the time I’m done here, I’ll have finished my metric. But let’s get into my thoughts and impressions of the book, hmm?

Daily D&D Ramble: Escalating Wild Encounters?

While I have yet to catch up on any sleep deprivation, I was able to safely return to my home in ND, with my beautiful 2 screens of multitaskedness. So in therory, I should be able to get more, better work accomplished. Instead, I’ll probably play Minecrtaft and watch anime, but we can hope!

Daily D&D Ramble: What to read? Five options

Okay, I’m headed out the door in entirely too short of a time. Hopefully, tomorrow evening will be broadcast from my apartment, instead of on the road somewhere. But, to make this a useful and quick article, I thought I should share¬†five books that I think are good for DMs to check out. So let’s go! Continue reading “Daily D&D Ramble: What to read?
