    D&D General Dave Arneson Game Day 2022 is Today

    People have been poo-pooing Dave Arneson for 50 years. That doesn't take away from his essential contributions to our hobby. :) -Havard

    D&D General Dave Arneson Game Day 2022 is Today

    Dave Arneson, Co-Creator of D&D would have been 75 years today. It is a great day to run a game, play a game or do something else related to gaming as a way of honoring his legacy. Are you doing anything in gaming today? I have been posting Blackmoor Stuff all week :) -Havard

    D&D 5E How Old-School is 5th Edition? Can it even do Old-School?

    I started out with the BECMI edition and when I have run 2nd Ed, 3E or 5E, I tend to try to DM in the same style that I developed all those years ago. That doesn't mean my style confirms to what other people accept as Old School though. Most notably, I am not overly concerned with the game being...

    D&D General Veteran fans - did you think of Basic D&D and AD&D as completely different games?

    While it is extremely easy to import things from one of these to the other, I have always seen them as separate games. As a huge fan of Basic D&D (or Classic D&D, as I prefer calling it), I have always felt that this game has a unique identity and feel of gameplay. This became especially clear...

    D&D 5E Mystara Player's Guide free for download

    Well written and comprehensive work. Love the illustrations and of course the incredible maps by Thorfinn Tait. Clearly this is the most complete treatsie of Mystara for 5th Edition out there. I also like that you have added your own expansions here and there to make it truly your own work...

    D&D General Setting a campaign on a river

    Cool idea. In river based adventures I have DMed and played in, we have often ruled that trying to steer a river boat at night is too dangerous, so they always have to dock for the night. In 5E, I might also rule that you need to set up camp on the banks in order to get a Long Rest. This...

    D&D General Shadows of Mystara - References

    Ka's appearance was in another game, Warriors of the Eternal Sun, was it not? Several specific locations in Darokin, Glantri and the Brokenlands are featured. Also Shadowelves were featured. Prince Malachie of Glantri appears in a Flying Ship at the end (Canon NPC). The weird train thing is...

    D&D General UPDATE: this isn't greenlit : Jeff Grubb's Lost Mystara Sourcebook To Be Released

    While the Capcom Games are great fun (and largely compatible with canon even if they tweak a few things), Mystara has been directly referenced many times since then. Most recently in Goodman Games' OAR series and WotC 5E books like Ghosts of Saltmarsh which specifically talk about Mystara. I'm...

    D&D General UPDATE: this isn't greenlit : Jeff Grubb's Lost Mystara Sourcebook To Be Released

    I am currently running a campaign set in Darokin using the 5E rules. We didn't really change the rules much so far. This is mostly exploration of wilderness and rural villages with various mysteries, sinister cults and the machinations of the Great Merchant Houses in the background. There may or...

    D&D General UPDATE: this isn't greenlit : Jeff Grubb's Lost Mystara Sourcebook To Be Released

    Could not agree more! Which is why amazing fans have been creating new material for this amazing setting and kept it alive and fresh for 30+ years now. Much of that material is currently available at Pandius.com :)

    D&D General UPDATE: this isn't greenlit : Jeff Grubb's Lost Mystara Sourcebook To Be Released

    Interesting. I had not considered that GMG and WotC might have been coordinating these two projects. Ghosts of Saltmarsh does name drop Mystara several times, along with a few other settings. Here is my complete(?) list of Mystara teasers in published material for the last three editions...
