Evil Plots

What kind of Evil Genius doesn't like to brag about his master plan? Here are some adventures I'm quite proud of, and how they turned out.

  1. Dungeons and Dragons: Mastermind

    It has been a good long while since I have sat down to write anything here. I've had a campaign idea swimming around in my head for a while, and I'm just about ready to start it up. This entry is mostly for my players, but also to give ideas to GMs who might want to try something similar. The basic idea behind the campaign started with a simple question: What if the party worked for the villain?

  2. Rolling with the plot



    If you're reading this, you either have a brilliant idea for a story you wish to tell or you simply want to play some dungeons and dragons, but can't find a group to join. If you're the former, be prepared for your players to stupidly stumble through one shenanigan after another and derail and destroy your perfect vision of the story. If you're the later, well, be prepared for your players ...

  3. Miniventures with companions

    It's not uncommon for an adventuring party to have a smaller creature in their company. It might be the animal companion of the Ranger, or it might be the Wizard's familiar. I had an interesting idea after the almost total party kill, which I think has been refined enough to be worth posting about.


    The idea is very simple. Set up a situation where the companion or familiar might go off on their own. From here, it is basically a mini adventure for the companion or familiar, ...

  4. Challenge of the Construct

    A while back, I wanted to try something new and different in my game. The idea I had come up with was pretty silly at first, but it was surprisingly well received.


    The party had just entered what they believed was a demonic stronghold in a volcano. What they didn't realize at the time, was that the demons had taken the place by force from a somewhat obscure group known as The Order of the Cog. Think of the Eberron campaign setting. One of my favorite parts of the Eberron ...

  5. DMing to an unbalanced party

    4e is generally pretty good about not requiring every possible party role. You don't really need to have the dream team of Fighter/Thief/Wizard/Cleric in order to cover all of your bases anymore. I admit, things certainly run smoother when you have every role covered (Defender/Striker/Controller/Leader), but it is certainly possible to work games out when missing roles. On the other hand, just because it is possible doesn't mean the DM should not be aware of his party. A good DM should be building ...
