    What The $%&! Is A Stealth Encounter?

    (This post comes from our Shades of Emerald blog, but has been copied here in full for convenience sake.) There’s something about rogues (or thieves, bandits, assassins, whatever else you want to call them). They carry an aura of danger about them. The way they stand in darkness keeping their...

    EONS Adventures = Choice

    While wizards might be fumbling with the 4e ball and figuring out who to throw it to, the independent 4e community is still kicking. EONS #1: The Endless Vault is a new one-shot 4e adventure from Emerald Press PDF Publishing. Sitting outside of Seddleton is a neglected house the children call...

    [4e] Want to Advertise An Upcoming Adventure/Supplement?

    Previews are an excellent tool for providing your potential customers with a sample of your latest work but they're only useful if those customer can find your preview.

    Is Dying Such a Bad Thing?

    Not the mechanics (which makes it nearly impossible to die unless you're crushed to -30 hp) but the principle of fighting until you drop for good. We faced that this past weekend when facing an army of 1000 soldiers trying to arrest the city's baron. Half of the party was hesitant and wanted to...

    Specialist Class: The Collector

    Before putting this out there in any "official" capacity, just wanted to post this here and get some feedback before going any further with it. We're working on a project called "Break & Enter" dealing with stealth in 4e games and one of the biggest issues tackled are skill checks -...

    CA Live: Episode 1 Podcast and a Major Announcement for CA15

    Good day, gamers! While we're trying to work out some bugs on the site at the moment, just wanted to post the first episode of our new podcast here. CA Live is the official podcast for Combat Advantage and features interviews with some of the leading publishers, designers, and others in the...

    Any Other 4e Review Sites Out There?

    Other than here, the staff reviews at OBS and Neuroglyph Games, any other place that reliably does reviews for 4e products? More specifically, independent (3pp) 4e products? I'd like to start building a "review page" on the CA page linking to existing reviews on existing 4e products other than...

    Sidekicks: Need Suggestions for my PC

    First off, this will be my first Pathfinder character and the DM has strictly forbidden any other d20 material - PF core book only. And, in typical fashion, I don't just want to play what's written down. My PC is a human monk and a master of improvised weapons. I had originally wanted to take...

    Combat Advantage - A Podcast, Advertising, and a Facebook Page

    Why I decided to put all of this together during the Holiday Shopping season, I don't know. But here we are nonetheless. As part of our New Year's initiative for Combat Advantage - a free-zine supporting 4E - we're just a couple of weeks away from releasing the first episode of our podcast, CA...

    [4E] Risen - On Sale October 26th

    Legends Never Die. The battlefields of the multiverse yield more than fallen orcs, necromancers, and demons; uncounted heroes have taken to their graves in the quest for adventure, a reminder of the consequences of bravery. Rather than slip into the Void of death, powers exist in your campaign...

    [NSFW] Divine Orisons

    Divine Orisons Those damn, dirty wizards think they can have all the at-wills they want and no one else will try to mimic that "0-level" feel? Not if the clerics have anything to do with it. Create a divine at-will power designed to function as a flavor power, similar to the wizard cantrips...

    [NSFW] Arcane Cantrips

    Arcane Cantrips One of the best things I like about the 4E wizard are cantrips - those little at-wills with so many possible applications in and out of combat, it's just screaming for a halfling or gnome wizard to drop a vase on someone's head. But we all know there used to be much, much more...

    [NSFW] Defensive Powers

    Defensive Powers They say the best offense is a good defense and that applies to combat more than anything else. There are defensives boosts in 4E, but I personally find them few and far between. That changes today. Build a feat available to any character (you may designate a minimum class...

    [NSFW] Mind Your Surroundings...

    Finishing Moves Ah, Gencon has come and gone. Pathfinder sold out like mad, WFPG is releasing a 3rd edition, and Dark Sun returns next year. Very cool indeed, especially Dark Sun. One of the major attributes of Athas was the environment and its impact on the game unlike most other D&D worlds...

    A Personal Thank You to Whoever (Whomever?) Updates the 4E 3pp Wiki

    When the EN Wiki came out and there was a 4E 3pp page, I used it to update upcoming products and such. Seems that someone has taken it upon themselves to do it for me and I wanted to know who it was to give thanks. If anyone knows who, or if you are the person(s) who's been updated the Emerald...

    [NSFW] Finishing Moves

    Finishing Moves We've all seen our favorite action hero pull off a move to wipe the floor with the villain and this idea was inspired by Optimus Prime in Transformers 2 when he literally rips the face off the Fallen. That may have been motor oil pouring out of the Fallen, but it was incredibly...
