Critical effects on 20/20 rolls with Advantage

September 5, 2014 by

16

Back in the old days, we played D&D with the Loremaster Critical Hit/Fumble charts. They added some nasty effects to the game, making it really deadly. Like, sever someone’s spine and leave them paralyzed for the rest of their lives deadly… I thought that it would be cool to introduce something similar to my game and […]

My homebrew 5e DM Screen

September 2, 2014 by

Since WOTC has yet to release a screen, I decided to make my own. I bought a customizable GM Screen from Amazon recently, and printed out some charts and stuff I found online.  One thing I did add to my screen now that 5e’s Bounded Accuracy makes monsters more threatening to PCs on a wider […]

Hey! 5e is finally here and the fine folks at Gator Games thought it would be cool to celebrate by giving away a PHB to one lucky reader. We ran some great giveaways together during the 4e days, and we thought it would be great to do it again… So here’s the deal, starting today, […]

I received the new Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner’s game in the mail yesterday, and thought I’d share with you the contents of the box. I can’t speak yet to the actual playing experience, that won’t happen for another week or so, but I can comment on the contents of the game.  It’s worth noting that I […]

Playing Dungeon! With My Kid

This weekend I had the opportunity to play Dungeon! with my daughter (7).  We had a great time, and the rules were easy enough for her to quickly pick up and play.  The game is simple, but very fun, and I definitely recommend it for parents looking for a D&D-ish game to play with their […]
