  1. Feats and New Options

    There are many feats out there that give more vertical power--that is, they make you better at what you already do. For example, Weapon Focus makes you hit more often; Toughness gives you more HP; Spell Focus makes your spells harder to resist, and so on.

    Lately though I've become a little more enamored with feats that give horizontal boosts in power--that is, ones that open up new possibilities. Unfortunately, there aren't many interesting ones out there. For example, Fiery Fist ...

  2. Uncommon Sense - or "Welcome to paragon tier, sucker"

    A while ago, I had the brilliant idea to try and make my players think a little bit more about things they do before they do them. I had hoped to expand the game into new areas, where there was more than just a series of dice rolls to progress the story. My master plan involved throwing dangerous things at them. If they do something stupid, they face the consequences. Consequences often cause serious problems, such as heavy damage, lasting negative effects, or if everything works as planned, death. ...

  3. The Eye of Vecna and the (almost) Total Party Kill

    The party got their current quest as a side effect of completing their last quest. But, before I get into that, I need to back up all the way to the first session.

    In the very first session, there was a Half-Orc Barbarian in the party, but the player got bored half way through the game, and he turned on the rest of the group, and tried to kill them for kicks. Well, he got beaten rather quickly, and I managed to work him into the story as having been placed there by the very guy they ...

  5. The random vat of unknown magical goo

    Strange things happen when I am unable to properly plan out my game. Don't get me wrong, I don't railroad my players. I simply prefer to have at least a general idea what I will be doing in an upcoming session. Usually, this involves me asking my players what their characters intend to do next after a session ends. Often this means I have a number of monsters set aside as a backup plan if they should go in a way I do not expect them to. A monster encounter is very time consuming, and can often take ...
