    The Anti-d20 game?

    Has anyone here tried out Savage Worlds by PEG yet? It seems to use most every die except for the D20. Apparently it is the d4, d6, d8, d10, d12 system. :D Check it out for yourself here- http://www.peginc.com/SavageWorlds/index.htm

    D&D Risk?!?

    Check out the survey on the Avalon Hill website where they state- "We're thinking of producing another Risk game and would like to get your opinion on some ideas." And one of the ideas is: "Risk game set in one of the imaginary worlds from the Dungeons & Dragons game, like Greyhawk, the...

    B9 Castle Caldwell author?

    I was looking at B9 Castle Caldwell and Beyond and noticed that the author's name is Harry Nuckols. This can't possibly be a real name, can it? Who really wrote this module?

    Isn't this illegal?

    Someone is selling pdf versions of a lot of 3E books on Ebay. Isn't this illegal? Or maybe I'm behind the times and WOTC actually sells them this way now? See it here- http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3500097315&category=268 ps- I tried to post this on the WOTC site but it...

    Does D&D combat break the fantasy?

    After a few sessions of being a player in a 3E campaign, I am starting to think that D&D combat just doesn't do it for me. Is it just me and my group or does the D&D system encourage too much metagame thinking and unrealistic actions? For example, my party (3rd lvl) had the task of breaking...

    What color is your goblin?

    I've always thought that it was odd that goblins are described as having red or yellow skin in the monster manual. I don't know about you, but goblins in my mind (and in my campaigns) are green. When did this heresy begin in D&D history?

    WOTC Resolutions for 2003

    1. Get out of the retail business. WOTC is not a retail company. What in the world made them think that this was a good idea? Hell, most game stores I know of are run as a labor of love. They certainly aren't profitable. Apparently they thought that if GW could do it, so could they. GW...

    Is this any big reason why I wouldn't want to multiclass my wizard to a wizard/sorceror at 2nd level? Look at all the 1st level spells I could cast! With my int of 14 and cha of 14, I can cast 7 1st lvl spells per day! Good gawd, the POWER!!! uh, ahem, anyway what would be the downside to...

    Monster Recruiting?

    One of the things that I have always wondered about D&D- how do all of these evil guys go about recruiting their evil monster minions? Does an Evil Wizard(tm) just go wandering off in the woods and threaten goblins until they worship him or does he put an ad in the paper (Wanted: Swordfodder...

    Weirdness at the Dollar store

    The other day I was killing some time at a dollar store in a local mall when I saw something very odd. In the toy section, there was a bag of plastic dinosaurs with what could only be a Rust Monster! Unless there was a dinosaur with antennae and that wierd forked tail, it was an exact replica...
