5e Mega Dungeon: First session debrief etc

This part 3 or so of my┬ámega dungeon escapades. Part 1 is here, Part 2 is also here. You don’t really need to read them in order, but it might help you know what I am talking about…

So, after I came up with the idea on Saturday, I ran the first session on Tuesday, which is pretty impressive, I think. A lot of that was designing the tables that, while not 100% complete, are 100% reusable. So if I needed to make a new dungeon, I could. But, ideally, “Megadungeon means never having to say ‘Let’s start from Square 1’Continue reading “5e Mega Dungeon: First session debrief etc”

5e Megadungeon Project: Briefing Document

So, in continuation of my last D&D post, there are some information and tweaks that need to be addressed real quick, so people can know what to make for characters and such. This is that for the first test run of the concept. If I make a new one of these, I’ll post in big red letters with a link. But for now, use this.

New Project: 5e Procedural Megadungeon

This is a bad idea.

Let’s start with that. Get that right out of the way, intercept the comments, and set everyone’s expectations where they should be. Actually, let’s emphasize.

THIS IS A BAD IDEA!!

Right now, we can….

Hold on, I don’t like the defeatist tone there. Let’s try once more.

THIS IS (probably) A BAD IDEA!!

Nailed it. Continue reading “New Project: 5e Procedural Megadungeon”

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek: DS9 S2E25 The Tribunal

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

This is episode has a tropey start. Busy engineer/manager guy is going on vacation, keeps stressing out over leaving everything to not-hims. this vacation is probably his wife’s idea and since he’s such a dedicated worker bee, he’ll go along in name but not in spirit.

My changing role as a DM

When you run a game, you have to wear a lot of hats. Story teller is a big one, Mechanics Foreman is another. And quite often I don my curly white wig of Player’s Advocate. But I’ve noticed that the hat I wear for my Wednesday Adventurer’s League Group is starting to change and its fascinating into what I need to become to make the story a success.

Mad Matt Watches a Trek Batch 1 Analysis

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek D39 S5E15 By Inferno’s Light (Part 2)

This is my series where I watch a random star trek episode, and write my thoughts as they occur. There are likely spoilers.

Been jonesing for some Trek, so hit the button and rolled up some DS9, which turned out to be a second part of double. And that first “Previously on…” contained a lot of spoilers for the show. So that’s cool. Continue reading “Mad Matt Watches A Star Trek D39 S5E15 By Inferno’s Light (Part 2)”

D&D Book Review: Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

Remember when I reviewed D&D books? I’ve bought so many since then, my tastes have changed, and I’ve grown as a person. But I never really did review more books. And with a new one out, its time to dust off the old 10 Point Scale and give it a once over.
