    Hunting for a Cell Phone Plan...

    ...but have never owned a cell phone, and so have no experience with them. I could use some advice on which carriers were worth looking at. Ideally, we're looking for a family plan for me, my wife and two junior high school kids. Reliability and affordability are our two major factors. The...

    Update Madness!

    For most part, my gaming group and I really like 4E and are having fun playing it. There's just thing that's been getting me (and the rest of my players to one degree or another) down lately... Updates. And in advance, please, forgive my occasional hyperbole. It's likely the frustration...

    I need help with a Dark Sun/War of the Worlds/Barsoom kit-bash...

    I'm planning ahead for a Dark Sun campaign, but I'm going to mix it up a little. The basic concept is that Athas is a far future post-apocalyptic Earth. The War of the Worlds actually happened, and we lost... Wells' "Martians" first invade Burroughs' Barsoom, enslaving them and laying waste...

    Looks like Pbartender's on the jazz again!

    Ten years ago, a crack commando unit was sent to the slave pens by the Minister of Laws for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security dungeon to the Tyrian underground. Today, still wanted by the Templars, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a...

    Character Builder... But I already have Silverlight installed!?

    Up until now, I've had very, very few technical issues with the new Character Builder... Only one or two crashes, minimal lag, and I've been able to access it easily from several different computers. Earlier this morning, however, when I try to log into the online Character Builder to print...

    Net-Fu needed to find a particular type of table cover...

    My Net-Fu is full of fail this morning. Our new house has enough extra space to set aside a corner of the basement as a dedicated "gaming room". It's not quite ready yet, but we've been slowly picking up bits and pieces here and there from thrift stores and garage sales to furnish it with...

    Please, give me your collective opinions... An Elf uses a power to summon some helpful creature. During the course of the ensuing battle, the summoned creature misses with an attack against an enemy. Can the Elf use his Elven Accuracy racial power to reroll the summoned creature's attack roll?

    Fark.com | As if he wasn't cool enough already, now we learn that Terry Pratchett's first act after being knighted was to forge his own sword... Out of meteorites ...the author dug up 81kg of ore and smelted it in the grounds of his house, using a makeshift kiln built from clay and hay and...

    D&D 4E Help Me Build a 4E "Guild Mage"...

    So, I'd like to rebuild a character I played in 3rd edition for 4th. We was a Wizard along the lines of a Mage of the Arcane Order or a Guild Mage of Waterdeep. Since there's simply so much stuff out there, I'm having a hard time finding what I'm looking for and could use a little help with...

    An Open Seat in the Far West Burbs of Chicago...

    I have one or two seats open for dungeon crawlers who aren't afraid to role play or role players who don't mind dungeon crawling. We are currently playing 4E D&D, and are in the midst of the Heroic Tier starting a game of Starblazer Adventures! D&D is our bread and butter, but on occasion we...

    Happy Whacking Day!

    Happy Whacking Day, everybody! But first, a look at the local holiday that was called “distasteful and puerile” by a panel of Hillbillies. Whacking Day! In a tradition dating back to founding father Jebediah Springfield, every May 10th residents gather to drive snakes into the center of town...

    Game System Substitution...

    How many people here feel the overwhelming urge to use a vastly different game system for particular style or genre of game? Now, I'm not talking about using Pathfinder instead of D&D or using D20 Modern instead of Call of Cthulhu, but something little more drastic. Something along the lines...

    Help Me Name a "Terrorist" Organization in Star Wars...

    I need a name for a terrorist organization in the Star Wars universe for an adventure I'm designing. It'll be a small group based out of Tatooine (Arkanis sector) that's working against the Empire. The group is a bit more criminal, vicious and ruthless than the Rebel Alliance, and does not shy...
