And I’m back.
The holidays are always a busy time for me, with two little kids, family, friends, the house full of people, my anniversary and my wife’s birthday all bunched up at the same time. But I survived, so it’s time to start blogging again.
This Saturday we are playing again, and I’m having my PC’s navigate a swamp as they look for a Halfling outpost tucked away on a little island. I decided to design a skill challenge for this, rather than stealing finding one on the internet. So we’ll see how it goes. I’m still hoping to find an MP3 of a group actually running one, to see how others are doing it.
Anyway, I’m going to post it here for opinions. Or, if you’re in need of a skill challenge, feel free to use it.
I found this thread over at ENWorld, by AFCErik, and I liked how he did his skill challenges on paper. So I took his basic idea and modified it to my liking. I have the basic template as a word file, if anyone cares for it.
So, here is my skill challenge: Navigating the Eckleborough Swamp.
(The circles inside the columns on the right are meant to be checked off as successes/failures are accumulated.)
Let me know your thoughts… I’m reaaaally a Newbie DM with skill challenges….
Finally, I received some really humbling and exciting news for my little blog, of which I’m going to write about this week, and I’m also going to blog about a community project I am proposing for all of the RPG Bloggers Network members. Every single one of you. Those of you on the Google Group already know what it is, I think it’s good stuff, so stay tuned…
