    Shadow marches and droaam

    My players are headed to the borders of droaam and the shadow marches. There is very little published about that area. Has anyone had a campaign out there? Any ideas? Sent from my SM-G386T1 using Tapatalk

    4E 4E WotC Tools dead?

    I just found out that 100 custom monsters is the limit on Insider. Boo! :D PS

    If you were going to steal a dungeon map from a module, which map would it be?

    Assume you're DMing a dungeon crawl, and your sole purpose of using the map is that the map itself is interesting. Assume you're going to strip everything else away and just use the map. What map do you pick, and why? PS

    4E 4e ask a simple question, get a simple answer

    One of my players wants his PC to transform between regular and demon forms. Is there a class or PP that supports this? PS

    4E Who's still playing 4E

    I use the adventure tools for my monster stats, and I've noticed that the newer monsters seem to do enough damage, and the older monsters get new monster damage if you level them up one then level them back down. If they didn't I would also boost monster damage. I haven't really noticed a need...

    4E Who's still playing 4E

    I've taken over a local game and switched them to 4e. They've taken to it pretty well. Level 2, here we come! PS

    OD&D The Beauty of OD&D

    I hear you. I wouldn't want to play like I used to. I'm just saying the system hangs together. Since you're making a lot of disposable characters it's ok for the system to make them for you. It doesn't matter that you've got a limited font of creativity because you aren't tapping it. The only...

    OD&D The Beauty of OD&D

    I found this was much less of a problem in the old days. I've played two 4e PCs (to be clear, I've been DMing for the past 3 years), but I frequently had 6 AD&D PCs on a single sheet paper - because they died in droves. I personally played close to a hundred 1e PCs. So the game picking my PCs...

    4E The 4e Solo Thread

    I see them utilizing a skill challenge to gather info on their raid, which involves some murder and kidnapping in addition to stealing the treasury (they are totally heroes in this bunch . . . ). That means they are likely to know they'll need the key and a palm print to open the vault. The...

    4E The 4e Solo Thread

    Hi all, I've got an upcoming encounter I think might be a solo, and thought I could get some ideas from yall. The PCs will be looking for the treasury of an Eberron prince. Naturally, it should be stored in a Kunderak vault. I'm thinking that if they trigger the vault's defenses it should...

    4E Invading the castle:Small rooms, small fights, and 4e

    I did this in my dungeon crawl mentioned above. I made sure there were a variety of paths for encounters to flow thru. PS

    4E Invading the castle:Small rooms, small fights, and 4e

    The one time I did something similar, I gave the PCs a lot of intel based on how they researched the dungeon. They had about 2/3 of the complex mapped out before we started. I drew the whole complex out on a couple of easel pad pages of 1" square graph paper, so the dungeon took up the whole...

    OD&D Advice wanted going back to a OD&D game for nostalgia

    We used to take the sheets into the drive way and light them on fire. After looting them, of course. PS

    OD&D Advice wanted going back to a OD&D game for nostalgia

    I don't think you should put a lot of effort into increasing survivability. Bob the Fourth was a staple of OD&D for a reason. You should come up with a plausible reason for injecting new PC after new PC, and make the players roll up several to start, and perhaps encourage them to roll new PCs...

    4E What can Next do to pull in 4e campaigns?

    I would assume they use both methods to test which one is preferred. PS

    4E What can Next do to pull in 4e campaigns?

    I think his point was that if your stat block power needs errata, and it's a power 157 monsters have, that's 157 errata entries. Vs 1 spell change. But I'm in the camp that it doesn't matter. Just having spell lists on monsters is unacceptable. My last session of 3.5 I needed a Vrock. One of my...

    4E The 4e Solo Thread

    It seems like we should come up with a checklist of features a solo ought to have, and sublists of options that have that feature. Example: Action denial counters Begin turn saves automatic condition removal Free minion attack when denied (idea from the Queen's Pheromones) . ...

    Setting help, New Cyre

    My players are about to wreck the fledgling nation of New Cyre. In my Goblins of Eberron campaign the PCs have restarted the Last War. Breland and Thrane are fighting each other, Darguun has invaded Valenar, Karrnath and Valenar are also fighting, and New Cyre has seized the moment to establish...

    4E Reply if you love 4e

    I was impressed with how many things I didn't like about my previous gaming that didn't bother me until 4e showed me a different way of playing. PS
