    Can Anybody Help Me Find a Map of a Treetop Village?

    I'm working up an adventure set in a treetop village, someplace like the ewok village from Return of the Jedi except with Bar-lgura demons. Can anybody point me to a tactical-scale map of anything like that? Something I plunk tokens and use with Roll20.net? Or, can anybody think of a...

    Help Me Set Up a Mass Combat Involving Dinosaurs and Robots

    The PC's in my 4E game are 8th level. It's a rainy day, and I'm starting to think about what to do when they reach the end of the heroic tier. The answer is obvious: A mass combat involving robots mounted on dinosaurs fighting invaders from the Far Realm. From a story perspective, this won't...

    Help me rejigger an encounter in Tamoachan (C-1)

    For some time now, I've been running the 4E conversion of C-1, Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan. My players have finally made it to the uppermost tier of the dungeon, and we stopped play at Room 48: The Hound of the Bat. As written, this is a fairly ho-hum encounter. There's a basin full of...

    Anybody know anything about Kalka-Kylla? (From Tamoachan)

    I'm running the 4E conversion of Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan now, and I'm interested in any mythology that might flesh out the various inhabitants of the Shrine. Most of the opponents in Tamoachan have some antecedent in Mesoamerican myth/history. Does anybody know if this applies to...

    Help with an NPC assassin?

    I'm statting up an NPC assassin for my current game. It'll be a level 10 elite skirmisher. I'm looking for some sort of minor or interrupt power I can give it for a little extra combat oomf. Preferably, I'm looking for something with either shadowy or devilish flavor (the assassin has ties to...

    Boots, high, hard?

    A question that has nagged at me since 1988: what's the deal with all the boots in the 1E PHB? You can buy high, hard boots; high, soft boots; low, hard boots; or low, soft boots. What difference does it make? Is that difference spelled out somewhere in the PHB or DMG?

    My PC's are exploring an ancient temple devoted to Bahamaut. I to run them through a non-combat "Test of Justice" -- something the old priests of Bahamut would have used to test the faithful, back in the day. I don't have any idea at all where to start. Do y'all?

    Help Design an Encounter with a Giant Eel

    My PC's have decided to hunt giant Eels, and I'm a little flummoxed as to how to set that up. They're sixth level. They have access to a fair-sized boat and at least one ballista. I haven't statted out the giant eel yet, but it'll probably be an elite or solo. It lives in a coral reef a...

    I've been intrigued with S1 Tomb of Horrors for a long time, and this thread: http://www.enworld.org/forum/general-rpg-discussion/306672-tomb-horrors-example-many-one-kind.html has me thinking about it again. In particular, this line of posts caught my attention: I've heard this about the...

    Random Kingdom Events?

    I'm looking for tables of random events that might happen to a kingdom ruled by my PC's. I dimly recall seeing something like what I want in the 1st Edition Oriental Adventures book. Is there any other source for this type of thing y'all could suggest? Online resources in particular would...

    DDI User Name: Does it have to be an email address?

    Every time I log in to the DDI, I have give it my email address as my user name. Is there anyway to change that? I'd rather have a short handle as a user name that didn't include an @ and an _ (both of which are a hassle to type on my I-Pad).

    Tell me a little about B-4

    I want to put a big, decadent ruined city into my game. I want something that feels huge, creepy and old, with shades of Howard's Red Nails or Xuthal of the Dusk. I read through B-4 The Lost City about 20 years ago, and I don't remember much of it all. How well would it work for my purposes...
