So what will happen to the Forgotten Realms?

January 10, 2012 by

11

A rather clever guy on twitter named @newbiedm tweeted the following after 5e was announced: I wonder if Elminster will wake up next to Bob Newhart and realize it was all a dream. Funny, right?  Yeah, he’s pretty clever.  But while he was probably trying to be cute, the question about what the heck to do with […]

A new edition of D&D is coming

January 9, 2012 by

So the cat is out of the bag… Not that I was hiding the cat in the bag, because I didn’t know anything, but the cat’s out of the bag.  There’s a new D&D in the works, and an open playtest will help chart its course. So what do we know about this new D&D? […]

Dungeon Tiles: Shadowghast Manor

December 12, 2011 by

WOTC has released their latest Dungeon Tiles set, Shadowghast Manor.  This set is certainly nice to look at, it’s basically a large manor or mansion, with the underground catacombs for it on the flip side.  I think that owning two sets of this would probably get you more use out of it though. The tiles […]

I wanted to continue my  series on classic boxed sets, but I had run out of sets.  Luckily, readers chimed in and offered to contribute.  So today we are going to look at Hollow World, kindly presented by reader (and now contributor!) Christopher.  Remeber, if you have an old boxed set you’d like to snap pictures […]

Discussion: Does the game influence DMing styles?

November 15, 2011 by

Monte Cook’s Legends are Lore articles are a little puzzling to me.  They certainly take an old school approach to D&D that isn’t even present in Monte’s own version of D&D (3.0), but that’s a thought for another time…   The latest article asks if  “the game presents players with challenges that have pre-made solutions?”  This is something […]

Cheap poster map printing

October 3, 2011 by

10

This past week I decided to seek out other ways to print out poster maps besides just using up all my ink at home.  It turns out that printing some posters at the bog box stores wasn’t too expensive.  Check it out. I grabbed the map for the Neverwinter region that the artist Mike Schley […]

Madness at Gardmore Abbey unboxing

September 18, 2011 by

10

I wanted to do a quick unboxing of this adventure, as there seems to be some interest in seeing what’s inside the box.  This is not a review, just a very, very quick glance inside the box.  I haven’t read the contents of the adventure yet, so don’t expect that out of this video. Also, […]

Planning Neverwinter

September 9, 2011 by

7

One of the strengths of the Neverwinter campaign setting, as I stated in my review, is the inclusion of character themes.  Character themes were first introduced in the Dark Sun setting as a way to tie the PC’s into the world, with a ready to go plot hook for the DM to build stories around. […]

Classics Unboxed: Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (2nd ed. AD&D)

September 2, 2011 by

13

Continuing my series on classic boxed sets, we’ve arrived at my favorite (in my collection), the Forgotten Realms box for 2nd Ed. AD&D.  Now, it’s important to keep in mind that this is not the old grey box released in 1987 for 1st Ed. AD&D, but rather an updated version for the 2nd edition of the game.  If […]
