  1. Blog 18: Work in Progress

    If you're like me and LIVE on the activity stream, you've probably seen some of my WIP posts come up. Yes, working on Total Conversion: Curse of Strahd to Over the Garden Wall 5e Campaign. So, these past two typhoon days have been a huge boon in terms of getting a headstart on that.
    There are about 250+ pages of Curse of Strahd material, and I've 18.5 pages, so roughly 7% completed^^

    Yeah, so when I said Total Conversion: Curse of Strahd, I totally meant the whole book instead ...

  2. DM thoughts- It takes a Village

    Hello again.
    Welcome back to more ramblings of a DM. Last post, I talked about starting with a seed for a campaign. Once you have that seed, the next step is to select your setting. You can do this one of three ways. Either you can select a predone campaign setting from a book, base it on another source or create your own from scratch.
    A predone setting is usually the easiest, since all you have to do is read out the descriptions of people places and things from the book, with flair ...

  4. DM Thoughts- Starting with a Seed.

    Hey guys,
    I've not tried blogging on here before, so here goes. I thought it'd be fun as a DM to share some of my processes and thoughts.
    So how long have I been Dming? I'm pretty new at It. I started last summer on Fabletop, which is a hyperflexible tabletop system. I also ran a sci-fi mystry campaign with the FATE system set in a future small town in Iowa. My first actual campaign to run is my homebrew Pathfinder campaign Rookie Card, which takes place in the land of Arathain. ...

  5. Blog 16: Learning Curves

    Currently in the process of learning a new system--Mutants and Masterminds 3e. I'm very excited for the Teen Shonen Heroes game coming up, but learning a new system can be pretty daunting. Thankfully, the GM's been really cool and understanding about that.

    When it comes to learning a new system, I'm pretty much like, 'you gotta start somewhere.' Yeah, starting with zero knowledge can be stressful. Ahhh, what do all these numbers and lingo mean? So it takes some real effort and willpower ...
