    D&D 4E Resuming and Concluding my Epic 4e Campaign

    After just over a year-long hiatus, my small group of players and I have resumed play of our long-running 4e epic campaign. We started this campaign just after the release of 4e, and it was at the time our "playtest" campaign -- as in "let's play this new edition and see if we like it." After...

    Introducing New Player to Epic Campaign

    I am DMing a long-running campaign that has made it into the epic tier. After making it to 25th level, the group took a break from playing that campaign, including recently playing a bit of Dungeon World. During those Dungeon World sessions, we introduced a new player to the group (and...

    Hello, and thanks in advance for reading and providing insights. I am looking at a combination of abilities and want some views on how you think they should interact. Here are the relevant parts of the abilities: First, the paragon path's action point ability... And second, the effect of the...

    D&D Crossword

    Compiled by Chris Perkins, it's an interesting trivia (and spelling for our strange words) refresher for those of us with a long history with the game, or those who have looked into the history, anyway. Here is the link.

    Rule of Three for 7/25

    Found it here. I like that R&D is looking into rituals, as they are one of my favorite parts of the game. Sorry to say they can't pin down a solution that they like, though. The other questions were "meh" to me. Discuss, if you'd like.

    Whence the Animated Statue? (D&D Insider Tools)

    I was playing around with the encounter builder tool on D&D Insider, throwing together some encounters for a game Sunday, when I noticed a listing for an Animated Statue (Level 2 Elite Brute). It fits my encounter pretty well, so I'd like to use it. There is one problem, though: I don't know...

    I have some low-level PCs that are playing through "The Forgotten Forge" from the Eberron Campaign Setting. One of the first encounters in part three of the adventure is a CR 2 swarm of beetles (diminutive Vermin). I know that swarms of fine or diminutive creatures (like this swarm) are immune...
