Warstories: Feeding the tip jar

November 1, 2010 by


While perusing through the AD&D 1e Dungeon Master’s Guide’s introduction, I read a few interesting things.  One was the amount of hyping that Gygax did to “official” AD&D products, and how you should not pay attention to 3rd party stuff.  I found this comical because of the amount of grief people give WOTC about being […]

Warstories: Play Your Guy Right!

October 13, 2010 by


It seems I started a little bit of a mess on twitter recently by tweeting this: “What I want to see more of now in #dnd are builds for character classes that break the roles, like the slayer did & the ranger will as well.  I want role to be a choice, not a label […]

Warstories: I Need My Prep Time Woman!

July 15, 2010 by


Warstories is the name I gave to a series of short articles meant to spark discussions and advice amongst DM’s. With the series, I hope to tackle common problems that crop up during the game, and see how other people deal with them at their table.  If you have an idea for a future subject […]

Warstories: Worst. Playing Environment. Ever.

May 10, 2010 by


I’m a firm believer in that where you play, is as important as what you play, when you are looking to have a good time.  I’ll be the first to admit that in the case of our gaming group, we have probably the worst playing environment ever. We play in my dining room, and off […]

Warstories: The Unprepared Player

April 16, 2010 by


I'll assume that at some point in our collective gaming careers, we've all been guilty of this. Heck, I know I have on more than one occasion. I'm talking about the player who shows up to his game with no pencils, 2 dice, a barely legible character sheet he scribbled on a napkin, and a few pages from a scanned copy of the rule book.

Warstories: The imploding campaign

February 8, 2010 by


I have run the same campaign since the release of 4e.  We’ve been able to last together as a unit for this amount of time for a number of reasons, primarily because we all love gaming and as adults nearing the age of 40, playing with kids at the FLGS is not an option.  Also, […]

Warstories: Let’s talk miniatures

January 11, 2010 by


So since I’ve got minis on the brain today, let’s talk a bit about them, and how you use them in your game.  I’m the type of DM that doesn’t need to have a mini for every single enemy on the table.  I think  that’s  insane (in a good way), although there certainly are many […]
