Expanding Horizons

August 25, 2013 by

Lately I’ve been on kind of a Fate kick. I picked up both Fate Core, and Fate Accelerated Edition from Evil Hat Productions, and I’ve been digging into them all week. For those of you that follow this blog mostly from the D&D side of the street, and aren’t aware of Fate, it’s an rpg […]

87 DM tips.

July 31, 2013 by

I went crazy on twitter last night. I was doing some fiction writing (non rpg) when I suddenly stopped and thought about how I really haven’t been doing my job as “newbiedm”, which basically is to try and help new dm’s do their job right. So I started tweeting tips. And before I knew it, […]

Playtester profile interview about DnD Next DMing

I haven’t really written much yet about D&D Next, but I will, but right now’s not the time.  I’ve given my opinion here or there, but I haven’t really reviewed the game or anything like that.  WOTC published an interview today with me for their playtester profile series… If you’d like my general opinion about […]

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 […]

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? […]

Open Discussion: The changing role of the DM

December 20, 2011 by

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 […]

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 […]
