    D&D 5E MM sold out on amazon

    Nice job 5e team! I'm sure amazon will restock in short order but it's nice to see D&D manuals actually cleaning out stock especially a monster manual, wow! Not saying this is unheard of, but it's still a nice sign of the interest the new edition is garnering. Wonder if the recent Kotaku...

    D&D 5E Art direction and 5th edition

    While it is further down the line of importance than game mechanics, art design in tabletop gaming is immensely important. It helps set the visual groundwork for all of the locales and races, inspires DMs and players to create memorable settings and characters, and helps catch the eye of...

    Will 4E Eberron be as bad as FR?

    I want to start off by stating that 4E is my current system of choice. I have one game in the works and am trying to squeeze my way into another as I write this. With that established, I think enough time has passed since its release that I can say the 4E incarnation of The Realms has been a...

    Share the love: puzzle edition!

    I love adding puzzles to my dungeons but admittedly don't always come up with the most original ideas and was hoping to snag some from my fellow GMs :) Here are two I've used recently. I try to make them either optional (with some nice treasure as a reward) or bypassable in some way, since not...

    MozMapEditor preview

    I'm an avid reader of the Mozilla Blogging Project and noticed this post today regarding new map making software based off the Mozilla codebase. It is designed to create maps as SVG (scalable vector graphics) images. http://blog.sexylizard.org/?2005/08/09/9-mozmapeditor-svg-powered They...

    ability roll cheating

    I recently started a new campaign with some buddies I haven't gamed with in a few years. This is the first campaign that I have actually poured all of my time and resources into; all of my previous ones were usually planned in a very half-assed way (by my own standards) and rarely lasted more...

    Dragon with feathers?

    I am seeking artwork of a feathered dragon for a friend's campaign. He is new at DMing and is hell-bent on having this dragon with feathers instead of scales. Personally, I was reminded of the dragon from Secret of Mana (although I think it actually had fur...) A google search turned up a few...

    Dungeons & Dragons "for dummies" edition?

    Forgive me if this has been discussed. I received a gift card for Wal Mart for Christmas, so I was browsing around walmart.com. I typed in a dungeons & dragons search and found this among the results... Dungeons & Dragons for Dummies Author: Slavicsek, Bill Author: Baker, Richard W...

    Adobe Reader 7.0 is out; much better than 6.0

    I just installed it and I'm impressed by how fast it is. It starts up faster and even displays PDFs faster (when changing pages on really large or complex documents, etc.) Since a lot of d20 publishers distribute their stuff in PDF format, I think this is a relavent thing to post here. :)...

    Legend of Earthsea

    I kept seeing commercials for this in the evenings on broadcast TV (I don't have cable), and while the CGI definitely screamed of cheesiness, it did catch my attention. Just curious what others are thinking, and if you are looking forward to this four-hour miniseries. From the website ...

    The 'learn about d&d' flash demo & the upcoming Basic Set

    I was wandering around www.wizards.com/dnd and decided to check out the "Learn About D&D" section since I hadn't looked at it in a while, in case they had updated it. They've totally redesigned it, though this may be old news by now. It couldn't have been too long ago since it makes references...

    Handling maps in your game

    I've been a DM on and off for about 8 years, sometimes with as much as 18 months in between sessions (finding a playerbase when everyone is busy with school, work and blossoming families has provided many hurdles), and one thing that I have found awkward is the usage of maps while gaming. I just...

    FireFox

    I'm having problems browsing the 'new' enworld in Mozilla FireFox (in particular the pre-0.9 nightly builds. And not just the most recent one, all of the builds I have tried over the last 6 or so weeks (yet no open bugs at bugzilla.mozilla.org seem related to the problems I am having) The...

    Gnomes

    In recent threads regarding race preferences, Gnomes have faired poorly, probably no noone's surprise. I am starting a new campaign soon and I do not want to remove Gnomes, but I agree with many that Gnomes just don't cut it. What are your ideas for changing or customising Gnomes to make them...

    Statistic Generation Methods

    Tell us about your methods. Do you use the standard 4d6 drop lowest (in order or arrange to taste)? what about 30 point buy? I noticed Knights of the Old Republic (the videogame which uses Star Wars D20) uses it and frankly I find it too restrictive for my taste. You have a lot of control...

    3.5 Printings?

    Me and my friends are just starting a new 3rd edition campaign, but a few of them have purchased 3.5 rulebooks. I've read a little from them and the changes seem great. Since we won't be starting a 3.5 campaign very soon though, I decided to hold off on purchasing 3.5 until maybe a second...
