    General An Ontology of D&D Alignment

    In Nerilourias, alignment is mostly a matter of one’s personality and moral inclinations, as expressed through actions. It is both a guide to roleplaying and a tool for understanding the larger conflicts of the world. The following alignment descriptions first address behavior and motivation...

    General An Ontology of D&D Alignment

    I worked through this for a campaign setting I am currently working on. It's a medieval-Europe-like place, with the driving concept being that the world is controlled by the gods associated with the seven astrological planets. There is a correspondence between the gods and the alignment system...

    General An Ontology of D&D Alignment

    I wonder, do you have this in a single pdf or Word file? It would be nice to download without copying each individual posting in this thread.

    Yet Another Take on Page 42

    The guidelines on page 42 of the DMG certainly have the potential of being a DM's best friend. But the DCs as originally printed seemed too high, especially when combined with the misdesigned skill challenge rules. The corrections issued by WotC, though, seem to swing too far in the other...

    4E Showing the Math: Proving that 4e’s Skill Challenge system is broken (math heavy)

    Very interesting thread. I don't have my DMG yet, but it sounds to me like the main problem is the expectations set up in the text about the difficulty of a typical skill challenge. The system itself is interesting, and could be fun for players with the right sort of mindset to milk it for...
