  3. Warmaster Horus


    I ran a Tier III game (CCC-QCC20176) last Saturday at the local open AL meet at my FLGS. We had over 60 people signed up to play and as expected I had no trouble filling a table.

    AL Survey?

    So the Gamehole Con 'State of D&D' podcast mentioned a big AL survey going out this week. Any news on how that's going to be done? I assume as a standard D&D web page survey akin to the ones done for UA?

    Planar Binding in AL

    The Planar Ally spell allows the caster to bind a fey, fiend, celestial or elemental to their service for up to 1yr+1day and 1000gp as 9th level spell. So for some casters you can potentially have a large number of powerful servants in their thrall. Any DM guidance on this possibility? How is...

    The AL FAQ (as downloaded this morning), with regard to Permanent Magic Items generated from Treasure Table rolls, still states... DM's should never award permanent magic items in this way, including (but not limited to) permanent items with a limited number of charges... However the SKT AL...

    Season 3 and Madness

    I played a couple of Expeditions this week and found that Madness, while flavorful, was a major distraction to the game. In one module, which involved significant travel through the Underdark, there was a high DC Wisdom save for every rest. In a large party that was a total of several dozen...
