    DDI VT Beta thread

    Thanks Dannager. We are running a hosted mapper designed for PBP and wondered if the DDI VT would be better for PBP. From what you say it seems at the moment we are better to stick with the PBP mapper we have. You can read our discussion here if you fancy: Play by Post, Dice Roller, Demo Map...

    DDI VT Beta thread

    I may have missed it, but I did read the thread and there is one question I have: Does this map application require the DM's PC to be on running it for a player to access it? I ask this as I wonder if it would be good for play by post games, where of course the DM may not have his PC on when...

    Top Gear

    You certainly see some mad stuff on the show: 1) Landing a helicoper on top of a skoda when the skoda is moving. 2) Running a mini down a ski-jump. 3) Turning a three wheeler car into a space shuttle and firing it into the air And countless other things, class :)

    DM's Suport Group: Most Cliche Player Behaviors Ever

    In face to face games the same daft voice people put on when they try to roleplay. At least to my ears there seems to be a standard roleplay tone of voice that most people seem to adopt when roleplaying. Now of course roleplaying is great and all, but would be nice if people could try a...

    DM "adding" to your PC's background?

    Some players maybe ok with it, but some may also think a DM would be taking a big liberty by deciding bits of the background for the player. I've DM'd a number of games and would always discuss with the players if I wanted some bits of the background better defined. Also no DM has ever written...

    Why is there no talk about the Castle Keepers Guide preview?

    I have the C&C players handbook and it's a good alternative to AD&D should you want that. I read the preview in the link provided and yes it could do with less of the self trumpet blowing and less waffle words. The production values of something like the pathfinder players handbook so much...

    Really quite different is Misfits to what you mention, it's filmed in Britain and is much more raw. If you watch it you will see what I mean.

    Yea I know what you mean I thought the same initially and I only decided to watch it because someone at work said it was worth watching and when I did I was glad. Basically it's got really strong and interesting characters.

    It's British (That's the TV we get here) and the 2nd series ended a bit back. But this had to be my favorite series in ages. It's about a group of ASBO (young offenders) who are brought together to do community service. They are struck by a strange lightning storm and this gives them...
