    Aurora, The Silhouette Magazine (Heavy Gear, Jovian Chronicles, Gear Krieg, Tribe 8)

    (I can't remember if I've ever mentioned it here or not... given we're in our ninth year of publication, if I haven't, yikes, that's a big oops! Lots of nifty stuff you might not have known about!) Aurora Magazine is a free ezine published quarterly for fans of Dream Pod 9 games. Each issue...

    D&D 3E/3.5 Flavourful Tweaks (3e/4e/PF especially)

    In a recent campaign our DM made a couple of tweaks to character building and progression that I found to really enhance the flavour of our game, and I thought I’d share them here. They might not work in all campaign styles, but they may be of use and open up some possibilities for what you’re...

    One DMG to rule them all

    Over the years I’ve had the good fortune to play in campaigns using every edition of AD&D, from my first forays into 1e all the way to today’s 4e. In terms of the number of campaigns and hours played most of my experience was probably clustered in the 2e days -- I can think of at least eight...

    Centaurs and other 'Tauric Races Supplement

    (this feels weird posting here rather than in the/a dedicated 'merchant' forum :P ) I have always loved the ‘tauric form. Don’t know exactly why, but they capture my imagination. Over the years I’ve played a number of Centaur characters in various campaigns and in various editions of the...

    Decoupling Skills from Stats

    In looking over the various bits of info on D&D N, one way I am seeing that skills could work has me rather excited. Essentially: If most things in the game are tied to attribute rolls; And skills simply give you a bonus to an attribute roll; Then: Skills could be bonuses to any attribute...

    Finding magic items (primarily for DMs)

    Hey all, this is a question for all your DMs out there (and also useful for players too... :) ) When you're going about choosing treasure parcels and the like, what method do you use to find and choose magic items? With the plethora of items out there now it seems quite daunting to find a good...

    [Kannik Studios] Adventurer's Option: Strained and Battered

    Torrok shook under the mighty blow. The battles had been raging on all day, and the minotaur he now faced was not the first he’d fought that day – and who knew if it would be the last. He’d never known himself able to push his endurance and resilience to such limits. If he survived only a...

    From the pages of 1e

    While I was home over the holidays, I cracked open my first edition PHB and DMG to just read bits for fun. I started with the forewords and introductions and... I don't think I had ever read them before. When I started playing the group of experienced players explained the game to me, perhaps...

    Please check my math -- DC chart

    Greetings! I'm making a table of DCs for myself for adjudicating PC actions and for setting Skill DCs. This is intended as an alternate page 42... I want to see if my assumptions are fair/accurate and will create what I want to do. Which is to have a very quick table I can use to grab a value...

    Combat/Non-Combat/Tradeskill Character Option

    This has been an idea that has been bouncing around in my head since I first picked up the 4e books... A lot more emphasis has been placed on the combat abilities of each class, or at least with all the powers now for each class a lot more attention (and book space) is given to those in-combat...

    For DMs: Notes from the field

    DMing is quite the task: part storytelling, part management, part interpreter, part director, part actor, part statistician, part cheerleader and sometimes even part psychologist. There are tips and tricks out there, but rarely do they touch on all those points... It has been a couple of...

    Thought Shield -- PR 13 enough?

    Any thoughts on Thought Shield (pun intended)? I am considering taking it (manifester level 4), and I'm curious how PR 13 sounds to everyone else. To myself, it seems somewhat low, though I supposed against an equally-powerful manifester it does mean a 50% failure chance, which isn't bad at...

    New Article: Postmortem for "Bloodstone Village"

    Greets to all, I have a vision. A vision where aspiring DMs flock to EN World to master their game before running their... game. For years I have read the Postmortem articles within Game Developers Magazine and I thought wouldn't it be great to read these but in the realm of GMing? To that...

    Force vs DR

    This may seem like a silly question but... is a Force spell affected by DR? On the one hand... Force affects pretty much everything, isn't resisted normally (no saves either), and is magic; On the other hand... Force conjures up thoughts of a physical-like impact (esp. with the Big Hand...

    Character Illustrations

    Many moons ago, I came accross a site where had been collected a veritable plethora of character illo's and portraits, nicely divided into categories/classes. Lo and behold, I either forgot to bookmark it, or lost it in a recent HDD crash. Phooey! Does anyone know of said or similar sites...

    Name of the Divine

    I'm designing a character for a new campaign... from concept to mechanics I think I've got every thing down. Except for one little detail. The character concept has the character beginning as a cleric, but not one who follows a god or gods, but instead is drawing on the more general divine...

    Fractional Saves/BAB

    I seem to remember an optional rule in a book somewhere that talked about fractional Saves and BAB -- or at least a chart basically exposing/extrapolating the values at each level from the appropriate formula. There may have been a rule with it that talked about using those charts when adding...
