Epic DnD Trailer filled with Illithids and Drizzt!

The epic new D&D Rage of Demons Launch Trailer had me at the edge of my seat. Showering us with Illithids (which, I probably darn near peed myself at their attack) and peppering in the appearance of Drizzt Do’Urden’s, what more can a trailer ask for? The video is to showcase what is coming up for the Forgotten Realms.… Read More »

Warner Bros. Rerolls a new DnD Movie

We all remember the last Dungeons and Dragons movie, and at last it was well received by very few. I remember the special screening before, when they give out the little gifts ya know? They gave out blue lipstick. Yes, blue lipstick. Even as a woman, it was awful blue lipstick. If that wasn’t my first tip on the quality of the movie, I had no idea… Read More »

Dungeons and Dragons 5e Release Date, prices, and the Free Core Game PDF

Dungeons and Dragons is a game that has its ups and downs in the current market it is in, and with 4th Edition a lot of hardcore players were in a riot. Disliking 4E for many reasons, but that can be covered in a large article all on its own. Because of the complete “botch” that many players… Read More »

LARP – The Movie [Kickstarter]

There’s been a lot of gaming movies in the past, and most of them have been horrible flops or laughable at best. Even ones we anticipate the most end up disappointing us. LARP The movie so far has a very interesting view to it, and with very little current funding their teasers are rather compelling. The LARP team behind… Read More »

Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition Playtest overview.

Recently I printed out the Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition (or DnD “Next”) Playtest, and I noticed some very obvious changes, for those of you who haven’t had the time to check yet, I’m gonna give you the low-down! Hit Points are now a lot more like third edition, only a few classes seem to have an upgrade… Read More »

Fan-page review : The d20 PFSRD webpage

I want to offer to your attention a collector-site of free contents, which is under the aegis of the Pathfinder roleplaying-game. (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/) The Paizo Publishing launched the Pathfinder RPG at 2009. So, it was the year after of the publishing of the DnD 4th edition. Both released in August, with one year difference. Maybe the reason was that,… Read More »

Building the Barbarian: Creating Complete Characters #1

Good evening, fellow gamers. Today is the day that Complete Characters finally comes back into view. It’s an exciting day for me, as it always is when some of my work makes its way to the public. Briefly, what this retooling means is that the previous incarnation, with its full character description, custom illustration, and systemless stats, now includes stats for the d20 system. Not one set of stats, …

WotC and SarahDarkmagic Stole from Me!

When I opened up my RSS feed this morning, I could not have been more dismayed. It seems that WotC ( Weems of the Coast ) has been working on a new version of D&D! That, in and of itself, is not terribly surprising or shocking. What stole my breath and made my blood boil was the new setting they announced on sarahdarkmagic.com . …

The 4e Problem – Reconciliation

For quite a while, I had a large problem with 4e. To explain this well, I need to give you all some history of myself and gaming. If I’ve shared this here before and you’ve read it, bear with me. I’ve been a fantasy fiction geek since around 1st grade. As I was growing up, I was exposed to D&D via the original Red Box…

D&D Basic Set part 1

Yes, it’s been a long time. And yes, I know that I promised to do some consolidation and campaign-building in the meantime. That stuff is still going to happen. But in the interests of keeping this blog ticking over, I’m leaving the OD&D era behind and forging blindly ahead into the AD&D era, starting with the D&D Basic Set, as…

The Abyssal Scrolls – Chapter 2

A stoic figure trudged down a long, dark hallway, running the fingers of her one hand across the damp stone walls. Her blazing red hair which contrasted with her pale skin was pulled back in a tight bun. Azara was sick of being underground, in this tomb, but she knew it was necessary. Her eyes were wide open,… Read More »

Forged in War Book 1: Reforged

Reforged – A Forward (I know normally I don’t put a special forward, but this one seemed to warrant it. Feel free to skip, though if you’re not familiar with Eberron (or are, for that matter) I’d at least advise skimming down to the Notes part below for a few terms and explanations.) In every author’s career I… Read More »

Tobarra – Chapter 1

Many of the gamers that I’ve met are, like myself, frustrated authors. We often see our games as something that might appear in a novel, or at least in writing. Thus I’m starting up this campaign log for the D&D game that I just started with some friends. It’s 4e, set in a generic D&D world of my… Read More »

Dungeon Crawl

Dark energies long untouched are beginning to resurface. Secrets long forgotten are returning into the minds of many. As entire cities are left abandoned and lifeless, Derelict caverns and dark chasms are teeming with unwelcome life. Something is coming. A trio rushes through the untamed forest at an accelerated speed. They did not know if what had been… Read More »

The Abyssal Scrolls – Chapter 1

It was evening in Bloody Jackie’s tavern, and an average one at that. The usual clientele was in full force, ordering drink after drink and causing an acceptable amount of bar fights. As long as they were buying more than they were breaking, the proprietor, Jackie didn’t care. It was business. The tavern’s front door swung open to… Read More »
