    Who brings food? The GM or the Players?

    We sort our own food out If you want food you bring some, if you don't want any you don't bring any. If you want a full meal eat it before the session starts, don't interrupt our game with your takeaway. (our sessions are typically from 7.30pm to around midnight). I have to be careful about...

    5E A 5E Meazel

    I've written a short adventure, initially for my group who are playing 1E, but I'm typing it up/tidying it up and putting in conversion notes for 2E and 5E. A key protagonist is a Meazel, a creature that does not yet have a 5E version. Now in 1E Meazels were sneaky, solitary creatures, but of...
