1 Rogue, Coming Up

  • 0
A couple weeks ago I gave a comparison between a 1st-level barbarian and a 20th-level barbarian for D&D Next from the latest playtest packet. I know Wizards of the Coast announced one final playtest packet for this year at Gen Con, so the information from this packet is living on borrowed time, but since some readers wanted another comparison, I thought I’d turn my attention to the rogue.

How Do You Slay A White Dragon?

Dragons: for a being named after them, our own games rarely feature them. Here's a way to highlight one of them that you can use right out of the box!

RER-World’s Edge and Beyond: Purple Duck Games Brings “Old School” Monster Tables to Your Pathfinder

  • 1
I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with using random encounters in my role-playing games. All the way back in my early AD&D days, random encounters seemed like just another intrinsic part of the gaming experience, like clerics turning undead or wizards casting fireballs. Later however, I found random encounters to be a little silly, as they were often inappropriate for an adventure. Of course, one could just pick something appropriate off the table in the old DMG - but then is the encounter truly random?

It's Great To Be The King!

The classic monster movie is reborn with Pacific Rim, and while we patiently wait for someone to create a decent game based around the licence, why not get involved with a much more comedy based affair filled with dice rolls and devastating overpowered attacks? King of Tokyo is here and it wants to destroy all that stand before it!

What Apps Are Essential for GenCon?

I decided that this week I would get back to my column's gadget/tech roots and put together a list of the things to make sure you've got on your smartphone to help enjoy the biggest convention on the gaming calendar. And then, right when I was checking on the first item on the list, I ran into a brick wall.
