    Beginning at the beginning

    This scene is all too common for me: I populate my fantasy world with things and proceed logically to decide certain occurrences, and then ask myself what clues would be left lying around. The players come along and try to make sense of it and quit in frustration because they don't want to...

    Another D&D Themed Webcomic

    Apologies if this has been posted before. A friend of mine sent me a link to a gaming comic I had never heard of: Bad Gods | Monster Manual Comix: Harpy "You think that just because Grisleva is a harpy, she holds me in thrall with the perverse beauty of her song! Well, that's not it at all...

    When would this spell be useful?

    I'm having a problem with a spell that I like, flavor-wise, but which is incredibly weak and just not worth casting in combat. I suppose that if you had a prisoner you could cast it on him repeatedly to keep him from using his powers, but I can't think of a valid in-combat use. From the WOTC...

    OOTS 627 is up

    Giant In the Playground Games I really think Rich nailed the dialogue in this one.

    The City Arcana RG [3.5][mature]

    This is The City Arcana, a 3.5 campaign starting at first level. Magic is disappearing from the land. A world-spanning coalition, backed by the will of tyrannical priests, the machinations of unscrupulous nobles, and the superstitions of peasantry, seeks to eliminate all wielders of arcane...

    Cascada the Bard?

    Before we get on to the topic, fair warning - this may be the dorkiest topic I have ever posted. (Then again, if you aren't prepared for that, what are you doing on these boards?) I was watching music clips on YouTube, and I saw Cascada's 'Every Time We Touch.' Now, it's an old song, so I'd...

    The City Arcana [3.5][mature][dark]

    Magic is disappearing from the land. A world-spanning coalition, backed by the will of tyrannical priests, the machinations of unscrupulous nobles, and the superstitions of peasantry, seeks to eliminate all wielders of arcane forces. They have largely succeeded. Long fragmented and rarely...

    Using questionable referents in gaming

    I find a certain brand of painful humour in relating game elements to pop culture. For example, I once ruled that Otto's Irresistible Dance (which forces the victim to dance in place), a powerful spell with a long and storied history, was in fact the Caramelldansen (a cute, inane, and...

    Out for a bit.

    I'll probably be away for a few days. I should be checking in next week.

    WOTC Get Your Horse On!

    So, how's mounted combat in 4E? Have there been any builds to rival the 3.5 charging lance wielders who can deal enough damage to vaporize a planet?

    Invasion of Mori IC - Town Group

    After a hearty meal, you watch as the goblin delegation gathers around the cultist from before, who bears the same ornamented staff. Gesturing, she forms a circle and touches one of the party lightly with the end of the staff. There is a flash of brilliant blue light, and the goblin delegation...

    Invasion of Mori IC - Goblin Group

    The food is most excellent, a rare thing for meals in the Lair of Shadows. Roillard hands you a very crude map of the surrounding area, which is dominated by forests. A small stream runs through the forest where the goblins reside, and though there is a path through it, notes on the map...

    Help Tweak A Dragon Disciple (my players, stay out!)

    This is a named NPC. She needs scrutiny re: feats, maneuvers, gear, and skills. Further progression would probably be Ab Champ. CHARACTER NAME : Lirre "the Living Dragon" RACE (ECL) : Human (+0) CLASS (LEVEL) : Battle Sorc 4/Crusader 1/Dragon Disciple 10 ... NET LEVEL : 15 ALIGNMENT : LN SIZE...

    Upgrading a Sunblade

    I want to upgrade a sunblade. Should I treat a sunblade as a +4 weapon, or +2?

    Half-Dragon Fun With Expansion

    So does a half-dragon that uses expansion to become Large gain wings? Strictly in terms of rules text, why or why not?

    HELP a Daggerspell Shaper Going Epic!

    Hi, I have a Ninja/Druid/Daggerspell Shaper build. It has 17th level casting at CL 20 (thanks to Practiced Spellcaster.) I now need to take it into epic. (Actual build: Ninja 2/Druid 8/DsS 8/Div O 2) I have one level left on Practiced Spellcaster and I have Able Learner, so there's a lot of...

    D&D 4E Every 4E discussion I have ever seen, in a nutshell

    sukael: That reminds me, I wonder what support there will be in 4e for playing ghosts. moritheil: I wonder what support there will be in 4e for playing anthropomorphic baleen whales. (Yes, I willingly and facetiously took on the role of both munchkin and person who imagines 4e will be 3e with...

    An Epic Inconsistency

    This is surely far from the only example of a mistake in the epic rules, but I was curious about the area of effect for this spell: One would expect energy to be the cause of the 2 mile radius, but no: Can anyone account for this 2 mile radius? EDIT: never mind, I found it.
