  1. The Role of "Monsters" in Combat

    Something that a GM needs to remember when designing foes for the players - especially foes created using the same rules the players use (humanoid enemies with class levels), is the difference in role between a PC and an enemy.

    A PC sticks around. He faces, (in theory) on average, four encounters a day, every day. Generally, the player who makes him is planning on playing him for the duration of the campaign. The PC is created with the intent to live.

  2. Game Concept: Time Wars

    This is a game concept I have, and at some point would like to run. Still, I thought I would put it out here for discussion and if anyone else wants to create a game running from it, feel free!

    I have never done a blog before... That being said I'm going to try to start now.

    First, I've never used a blog because I don't see the point in them. Secondly, this upgrade sucks in my humble opinion. I hate the new color scheme of it.

  5. Me, Myself & I

    A Blob is the very height of egotism. Which is odd when you consider I have never had an official one anywhere. But I use my Profile's Visitor Message section for that very purpose and I have kept running public Logs on countless projects.

    So actually I have been doing them forever. Which if you know me makes a lot of sense. This is an oddly Community-focused Blog style though. It is not like you have to go somewhere to read what I have to say. You can follow a specific person and ...
