Our own Helm’s Deep

April 1, 2011 by


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 […]

It’s all in the presentation

February 18, 2011 by


“We haven’t seen a Dungeon yet, all we’re doing is talking to people, bringing down corrupt political figures, and killing monsters out in the wilderness.  This is really different.” My 4e campaign consisted of my homebrew storyline, which was the backdrop for the published adventures I hacked a bit to fit my storyline. By the […]

Transitioning from 4e to Dragon Age

February 12, 2011 by


My experience as a DM has been a unique one compared to a lot of other DM’s out there.  I suspect many people DM’ing D&D started out early on, with the boxed sets, then AD&D, and followed the logical footsteps of the game up until the point where we are today with D&D 4e.  My […]

The Dragon Age in a galaxy far, far away…

January 17, 2011 by


After seeing the absolutely kick ass fan produced version of the Mystara campaign setting for the AGE system (Dragon Age’s engine), I am now more than ever inspired to slowly work on a Star Wars version (or at least attempt to contribute to one). One thing’s for sure, my inspiration for doing something like this […]

A handout on the Dragon Age world for DM’s and PC’s

January 14, 2011 by


We officially started our Dragon Age campaign, and one of the biggest hurdles we are facing is the introduction to a completely new setting.  While I’ve played the video game, none of my players have, so it was up to me to introduce them to Thedas.  I played all the intro animations from the video […]

A potential new direction for my blog…

January 10, 2011 by


So as I’ve written before, my home 4e game is dead, my players have moved on, and it seems that for the time being there’s no more D&D for us.  So, without playing D&D, there’s not much I can write about D&D, right?  Well, that’s true to an extent… I am still going to be […]

Running Dragon Age

December 23, 2010 by


My group and I  jumped back into the fantasy genre this week, and did with a new game, no less; Green Ronin’s tabletop version of Bioware’s video game, Dragon Age. Now I can’t write this post without doing a little bit of explaining as to why we didn’t pick up and jump back into our […]
