I Take My Throwing Knife, and Throw It…Knife Style!

I finally got to watch the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons episode of Community. I haven’t seen the show before, but I saw the commercials and had to find this episode at least. I didn’t go into it with much hope, just because most people that “make fun” of D&D don’t really understand it so it just comes off as awkward…

Monthly Poll – Favorite Old School Module

Stolen directly from Grognardia ‘s web site So much for January. That didn’t take long. Sort of a small turn out for last months Monthly Poll so this shouldn’t take long. In 1st place for the favorite “deceptive” creature with 36% of the votes was the Doppleganger 2nd Place goes to the Water Weird (one of my personal favorites) 3rd place is Gas Spore. I have to …

Classic Dungeon Trivia 7

I thought last weeks was tough….wrong again. Vincent Diakuw was able to get it right in an hour and 56 minutes. Although, this time I actually had someone guess wrong. Maybe I’m getting more cryptic. Anyways, the answer was Q1: Queen of the Demonweb Pits On to this weeks trivia… Player’s Background For weeks, you’ve been looking for adventure in this forsaken wilderness, with nothing much to …

Classic Dungeon Trivia 6

Continuing with my effort to stay of track with Classic Dungeon Trivia Friday’s, I’m actually going to post one on a Friday! As to our last installment…Grendlewulf answered correctly with U1: The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh. The candybar goes to him. Now, on to this weeks moderately challenging trivia. And in the words of your dark lord and mine “I have you now!” THE CHAMBER OF OPPOSITION This room…

Classic Dungeon Trivia 5

Damn it! I just realized I’ve missed the last TWO Classic Dungeon Trivia Fridays. So I’m gonna do one now, and in 4 minutes after one of you D&D Savants answers it I’ll start posting one every Friday…I hope. As for the last one JB answered correctly in 1hr 11min, and I think he stalled just to make me feel better. Or maybe he was hung over from New…

Too Much Detail?

I was flipping through some adventures the other day and I noticed what seems to be a trend with Pathfinder products… There is A LOT of detail in those things! My group recently finished, or rather abandoned (for a completely unrelated reason to the length of the series), the Rise of the Runelords series so I decided to go through the modules just to see what sort of stuff …

Threads of Sanity #5 & 6

This time our session recap considers two sessions because two previous session have been short and we held the sessions over the net with Irc + Cacoo + Mumble combo. Those tools worked surprisingly well and made the handling of the combats a lot easier. Plus we noticed that it is easier to arrange time

Gauntlgrym Review

Haven’t read a book from R. A. Salvatore for a while, but wouldn’t spare some time to get back together with friends of old: Drizzt and Bruenor (Especially if you got the book as gift from your wife). It was time to return to Forgotten Realms with R.A Salvatores Gauntlgrym: A first book in new

Classic Dungeon Trivia 4

I’d like to thank Christopher B for waiting nearly 2 1/2 hours before answering last weeks Classic Dungeon Trivia. I swear I’m trying to make these somewhat challenging, but it’s just not turning out that way. Lets try another before I get really serious with you guys. STEPS OF THE ZIGGURAT If the group reaches this point they will be able to see…

Geekpaper No. 3

Here is another rpg-related wallpaper I’ve made while learning to draw shadows and highlights. The original purpose of this image was only to test how the highlights work in the eyes and skin but.. the outcome is not always what to expect. Since this one is also related to rpgs, I finished it as a

Classic Dungeon Trivia 3

Fine fine fine…last weeks trivia took Christopher B a grand total of 20 minutes to guess that the room was from the classic fun house dungeon C2 – The Ghost Tower of Inverness. I swear this week I’ll get you meddling kids and your dog too!! So here goes… At the top of the stairs are the remains of a door, …

Classic Dungeon Trivia 2

And the answer is: Since last weeks Classic Dungeon Trivia was so easy (Grendelwulf guessed it in 33 minutes, and I have a feeling part of that time was spent reading it and making breakfast) I’ll have to fine something a little more obscure. This weeks trivia is from a classic D&D module and I decided to give you a room description rather than a background…

Threads of Sanity #4

You can see the previous posts through this link. Here is the session recap of the fourth session. Deals were made and our heroes, and their new friend Barthus, head back to the cavern to close the shadow crossing that had been causing troubles in the village Tameron at the outskirts of lake Calenhad. After

I’m Down with OD&D, Yeah You Know Me!

Another game we played during my long blogging hiatus was some old Moldvay basic set D&D.

Good Little Children Never Grow Up

I’ll freely admit that I’m biased against 3rd party adventure modules for 4th edition.  Wizards hasn’t exactly made it easy to modify the character builder, especially since the web relaunch, so any new power, item, or feat presented is much more difficult to use. At the same time, the soul of a good adventure is the story, not the mechanics within, so with that …

Monster Vault: Fixing Solos

As I said in my review of Monster Vault , many of the older and classic monsters have been updated and brought into line with the design philosophy of the later Monster Manuals.  Additionally, the book fixes a problem that has been plaguing solo monsters since the first Monster Manual for 4th Edition:  stunlocking. In case you’re unaware, stunlocking refers to the…
