Videogame to Tabletop: Campaign Journal 1

March 8, 2012 by

2

(This article was originally written for The Dragon Age Oracle blog) So I’ve decided that my Dragon Age campaign will switch to following the story line (albeit a bit altered) of the videogame.  My 5 players are level 5, and we’ve gone through most of the published adventures, which I believe springboard nicely into getting […]

Dragon Age: Origins Story as a Tabletop Campaign

February 21, 2012 by

I’ve run through all the published adventures for the Dragon Age RPG, and now it’s time to move on to homebrew adventures.  Rather than wreck my brain trying to figure out an epic storyline, I think I’m just going to adapt the plot of the video game to the tabletop.  I have the advantage that […]

Open Discussion: The changing role of the DM

Monte Cook’s “Legends and Lore” columns at Wizards.com have been interesting.  In them, he seems to be painting a picture of a theoretical future version of D&D, and while I can’t say for sure that he is, it makes sense if you assume he’s been rehired by WOTC to help design 5e.  I’m a believer […]

Last night saw the end of the PC’s role as the Heroes of Redhold, an Avvarian settlement in the Frostback Mountains of Ferelden, and it ended on a kick ass note that truly showed how much stunts can turn the tide of battle in the Dragon Age RPG.  FIrst, a quick recap, and be warned, […]

Our own Helm’s Deep

I ran a real neat encounter in my Dragon Age game, and I thought I’d share it here, along with some ideas you could steal from it for your game, whether its D&D, DA, or something else.  The encounter isn’t mine, it’s part of a published adventure found in the excellent “Blood in Ferelden” supplement […]

More on Star Wars using AGE

March 11, 2011 by

On my off time I’ve been quietly working (for fun) on a Star Wars conversion of the first 5 levels of Dragon Age.  I’m not spending too much time on it, but I admit that the prospect of an AGE powered Star Wars game is appealing to me, if not for nostalgia alone, as the […]

GM worksheets for Dragon Age

I originally posted this article and the accompanying sheets over at the Dragon Age Oracle blog, but wanted to bring them over here as well.  I hope someone gets some use out of them, and enjoys their old school look and flavor.   I recently got my hands on the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Dungeon […]
