Roll vs Boredom: Dream Worlds

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Roll vs Boredom article, my little experiment with  a new mechanic per adventure hasn’t gone as well as I’d hoped initially.  In truth, I think the requirement of coming up with a new mechanic and the subsequent implementation has been distracting rather than enhancing my game play.  …

How do I add more to 4d8+18?

Despite Wizards of the Coast not showing up on my doorstep with a giant novelty check and a offer to move to Renton, I’ve decided to complete what I set out to accomplish. And that was of course to publish two articles so mind numbingly boring that ICANN shuts down the internet. The first was “How do I add 25% to 4d8+…

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 . …

Old School Podcast – Interview with WotC

I had a great time at Pax East, as I said in my post on the matter . What I have been remiss in doing, since then, is getting the audio content that I captured out to you, our readers and listeners. Well, I am rectifying that immediately. The first bit of audio that I am putting up is my interview with Kieran Clark and Chris Perkins of…

How do I add 25% to 4d8+18?

(Warning – There will be math. And numbers. They bore me too. Well, not really but I’m trying to empathize. Skip the numbers if you don’t like them – dwell on the poor humor instead.) In July 2010, Wizards of the Coast released a Dungeons and Dragons (4e) errata update , specifically to the Dungeon Masters Guide, more specifically the monster damage …

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…

Old-School Unboxing: Two Ravenloft Boxes

On Preference

Image by: Chrstopher I’ve been giving some thought to the idea of preference. Specifically, the preferences of people when it comes to the games they play. I saw a post by Greywulf that got me thinking about it. Very often, we as gamers, get into discussions about our favorite game versus another popular game and the discussions can become more than heated. What I am starting …
