    How to Handle a Druid's Animal Companion

    I need some advice on the Druid's Animal companion. The Druid I have built is geared for melee (Wild Shape) at the cost of his Charisma (7). So now his Handle Animal check is very low: 1 Rank 3 Class ability +4 bonus from Empathy and -2 Charisma =+6 So I need to roll a 14 to make my Cheetah...

    Online Games using Maptool: Need advice from the Pros

    Howdy, I have a few questions about maptool, as I gear up to carry on my tabletop campaign online after a move from one side of the earth to the other. Many are system generic so I decided to post here in the general forum rather than the 4e forum, though I do have one system specific...

    A Journey to There and Back (My experiences learning how to make skill challenges)

    Skill challenges were a mechanic that I liked the idea of from the moment I read them. I’m not a mathematician so I didn’t see any inherent flaws, 4e was brand new and I hadn’t played the game yet, so just the idea of having a system to reward players for being heroic outside of bloody combat...

    Dark Sun Encounters: Sub-Par Characters

    With out giving any spoilers please* I was wondering if there is some note included for the DM as to why the characters have been built to such a sub-par standard. Do characters in the Dark Sun Setting have less Healing Surges than normal characters? Or is it an error? I'm playing Yuka, the...

    Battle Card

    When my group first began playing 4e I made personalised Power Cards for each of my 5 players using the MSE program. They were gorgeous. But it became unwieldy as they increased level and received more and more magic items. Now what I have done is print off the 9 card page with the MSE and left...

    The Broken Realms

    Why do so many stories start in bars? Dark, seedy bars full of smoke, sweat and forget? Maybe it's because when you are desperate, when you don't know where to find solace, you look for it at the bottom of a bottle. Maybe it's the fact that so many stories do begin there, that desperate people...

    Places to buy cool props for your game that other people may not have thought of yet

    I walked into a pet shop with my son the other day for a bit of fish gazing, when I noticed all the really cool ancient ruins and sunken treasure aquarium decorations that they were selling. They weren't exactly cheap, but I thought they could really add some character to an encounter if someone...

    VCC Virtual Combat Cards: why can't I get it to work?

    Somewhat frustrated I turn to the wise for help. I downloaded the Zip file for the new version of teh VCC program. I extracted the content and ran the program from the .bat icon which started it up. I did that because nothing else seemed to work. Did I do the right thing? Then I loaded...

    Does the Barbarian's Howling Strike Stack with the Horned Helm

    So the barabarian's howling Strike At Will power does 1[W] + 1d6 +STR dmg... and can be used on a charge (giving a +1 to Atk). The Horned Helm gives +1d6 on a charge. So do they Stack into 1[w] +1d6+ STR +1d6? That's mighty powerful especially as my Barbarian/Paladin Hybrid has a Beserker Weapon...

    Anyone know of any 4e adventures translated into Spanish

    I'm a DM that has been dying to play for years. I have managed to interest 2 of my players in giving DMing a crack. Unfortunately, I live in Spain and all my players are Spanish. They can struggle through with English but it's tough. I was wondering if anyone knows of any 4e adventures...
