    Pathfinder 1E Paizo re-invents Hexcrawling

    I was an original subscriber to the Pathfinder series, but when the whole edition fiasco hit, I was saddened to see that (through no fault of their own, glad to see your successes) Paizo go their own way. Being a 4E fan, I really didn't keep tabs on the Pathfinder world until now; our group is...

    D&D 4E Are you supposed to level faster in 4e?

    Don't know how its supposed to go, but we've found that its roughly every 6-9 encounters for us, depending on how hard the encounters are. Our group plays about 4 hours a week, every week since 4th edition came out in June and we just hit 6th level. It seems faster, but we like it that way...

    [Dread] Jenga beat up my dice! My results from the indie horror RPG.

    Glad this thread got bumped up to the top, I would have never heard about this great-sounding game. I'll throw in my two cents call for a PDF version. I know that there are several people in my regular game group who would love a tension-filled story game like this one. As I read this thread...

    Runebound 2nd Edition or World of Warcraft the Board Game?

    Runebound is great, we've played it a lot with my family. It is worth it to get the packs of expansion cards, though, as you'll quickly become familiar with the original quest. One thing about Runebound is that it is better with only a few players. Because there's not a lot of interaction...

    Need Advice - Anti-Magic?

    Great suggestions, everyone, and thanks, I knew I'd get a quick answer. After thinking about it further, I probably will leave 'em just normal with no magic, let martial powers do their thing...although I'm not opposed to going the firearms route either. Its just hard sometimes to shift out of...

    Need Advice - Anti-Magic?

    As part of a homebrew campaign, I'm encouraging my players to contribute to the creation of the world we're adventuring in. One of my players has come up with a militant, xenophobic and fiercely anti-magic society of warriors. Its organization being modeled after such orders as the Knights...

    Using WoW's art assets to visualize your character

    I have a player in my group who uses this to create character portraits. It helps that he's a Photoshop god, but even with just the basic program, anyone can turn out some pretty good looking art. He has a dragonborn paladin in our weekly game- unfortunately there are no lizard races in WoW...

    [4e] Starfall

    I like it, especially the part about the Bright God. You don't see monotheism too much in D&D worlds, its a nice change of pace. Also having the fey the bad guys is interesting too. Consider some of your good ideas yoinked for my own nascent homebrew campaign.

    Nentir Vale Random Encounter Charts - WIP

    Excellent work! I was going do this myself, but you've already got the ball rolling. I think it is possible to give each area (zone, to crib from MMORPG language) its own flavor. I know from another thread/idea that a person ran a whole campaign like this, where the further you got from...

    Need a Compact Gaming Table Solution

    We use one or two (depending on group size) of the fairly cheap "blow molded" plastic tables with the folding legs, you can get them at any home improvement store like Lowes or Home Depot. They're longer than just a card table, but can be folded flat and stored out of the way. As for...

    A zero prep time adventure with my kids

    Sounds like fun. I'm going to be running my oldest daughter and wife through their first adventure tomorrow, glad to know its that easy. Just a tip, my regular game group found the Condition table tent cards at really handy for tracking conditions.

    D&D 4E UPDATED 6/20/08! kiznit's 4e Fold-over Character Sheet w/ Cards

    Thanks for all your hard work on this. I've been casting about for a character sheet to use (especially with my kids), and this one is just about perfect. Kudos to you! Also, I used your combat crib sheet as a DM on the worldwide games day, and that made my job of introducing 4E much easier...

    Married with Children and D&D

    I'm the oldest in my group at 35, the youngest is 21. I'm one of two that are married with children. I know many my age with children (or are at least married) who are D&D players, many more than you'd expect. My main problem is finding the time to play; I get one day a week and that's it...

    Bonus XP for writing up a story hour?

    I give 'em 250 xp per character journal. It doesn't bother me that some do it and some dont; they only have a 250 word minimum (which is rather short). Although I rather like their 50 xp per level, that way the journal's worth will grow with them as their characters get better. Its settled -...

    What's the strangest bit of character research you've ever done?

    The strangest research that I did was for a character's background as an expert on slime molds and other weird fungi; it was for an X-Files-ish GURPS campaign, relating to a case involving strange fungi attacks. Let me tell you, slime molds are freekin' WEIRD...
