    Improv Thread!

    I ran an improv fantasy one-shot, and we all had a blast! It looks like the players actually want to continue and possibly turn it into a campaign. Are there any sites, articles, books, etc that focuses specifically on this style of running a game? Maybe you guys can add your experiences...

    Can you suggest a RPG system.

    How about Dragon Age? It is rules-light, has an innovative stunt system, and easy to prep. I went from Savage Worlds, to D&D Essentials, to Dragon Age. Still love SW but having fun with DA now. -PJ

    Creating an "Out" (My Example)

    The Beholder scenario is part of the ongoing story. He is on the north west corner of the lair; the players come from the spiral staircase. I actually plan on having him "go down" with the lair. My plan is not for a TPK. In fact, I'm only having the PCs damage him until he's bloodied, at...

    Creating an "Out" (My Example)

    Glad I posted this! 1. Instead of the random chance of falling debris, each creature (at the beginning of the round) is affected by an "attack" at +6 vs. Reflex. Is the +6 still to high? (it's a 9th level encounter). 2. Remove the Slow condition and just keep difficult terrain (on a successful...

    Creating an "Out" (My Example)

    Okay, so this weekend my players are going to face a Beholder (the new 9th level one from the Monster Vault), and I wanted to create a scenario where his lair collapses and the players must escape before it completely falls apart. In other words, once he's bloodied, I want to create an "out."...

    New or Old DM Screen?

    I got all the Essentials stuff, including the new DM Screen w/ the updated DC levels. However, I hate that it's so flimsy. And all my PCs are still 4e and not "essentials" so my question is: should I still use the old DM screen or are the updated info (errata, etc) too crucial for the game? -PJ

    Just made a level 9 Essential Knight (Fighter). At level 7 I get a Weapon Specialization, and it gave me Staggering Hammer. However, I equipped him with a longsword so I want to change the WS to Bladed Step. Looked everywhere but couldn't find where I change make that switch. I can swap Powers...
