Geez, if I tried to be 'one of you' for all of the sites I support in one way or another, I'd never get anything done.    I just try to check in to various ones periodically for things like this.   

Understood, but you're always welcome.

I see someone decided to have fun.


Guilty as charged.  It's been slow here for 7a while so I entertain myself when I can.

And welcome to the crazies.  You're one of us now Cheesy

Hero?  Not even close.   

But your custom title says otherwise:)

I have no idea who Bookworm is but apparently he's a hero.

No hard feelings.  I haven't been around much lately beyond ultra short fly bys to check for trouble.  Shorthanded at work these days.

Note to Last Outlaw: I of course meant no disrespect with that Oh Wielder of the Mighty Banhammer. I was counting you among the inmates. Solidarity, brother! Please don't throttle me. Cheesy

Is the long wait nearly over?  OMG.

Still no further communication from our fearless leaderette, but do not let your hearts be troubled friends, imaginary or otherwise, for I am still here.

Though I will have to admit that I am starting to sometimes  get that Forrest Gump feeling of standing in the rain screaming Jennnaay!!.....

Yea, I've all but given up hope at this point and for the longest time I didn't think that was possible.

I miss pen and paper roll playing.  Or even a reasonable online facsimile thereof.

I've unfortunately proven time and time again that my life is to chaotic to DM anyl onger though.

Yea, some of us will be hanging around until the server gets shut down.

I actually have a stack of really bad short stories set in a zombie apocalypse I wrote towards the end of and shortly after high school.  The only reason they are of any note whatsoever is I wrote them in the early to mid 90's, before the Resident Evil games or other impetus of the big zombie boom that followed a few years later.

So apparently one of the accounts I approved the last time I passed through was a spam bot.  He's been unmade, sorry about the mess.

Not entirely sure what you're up to but typically I remove external links from first time posts to prevent spamming.

There was a point where to save time and keep up the schedule Jenny had gone to mostly black and white with only some color accents.  I always liked that period but I think she went back and colored them fully when she had time.

For those of you who sat in approval limbo the last couple of weeks, rejoice.  You are now one of us.  I also apolgize for the wait, but as the kids say these days, things be cray.

D&D Advice for Starting DMs?

"The facts of life..." -Dr. Tyrell, Bladerunner

OK, first, if at all possible read up on the subject in the DM Guides. Plural.  Anything from 3.5 and up, as a matter of fact, has valuable insights on the how-tos.  If you could browse through the 3.5, 4 (yes, even 4) and 5 dungeon master''s guides, you'll get an evolving view of what works and what doesn't.

If you have no time, and need quick-n-dirty advice, here goes:
Map out a list of the powerful characters in your World:  the Kings, Dukes, Archmagi, Ancient Dragons, down to the mayors and crime lords in the towns you're likely to be running.  Name the organizations.  The Free Association of Fun and Frolic has a nice ring to it, even though it still might mean "Thieves' Guild"...or it could be the Guild of  Tavern Owners...or it could be both.  Or they could be separate and competing.  But you've got to record it somewhere, because it will become part of the story.

Make sure you note their motivations:  long term, short term and immediate.  "The All-Squirrel noted a 15% drop in nut production this year and is concerned by the predicted 20% population loss."

Come up with a list of secrets in your world.  The weird subtle ones.  The squirrels are all part of a hive-mind All-Squirrel.  The Dragons are slowly disappearing.  Magic is stronger around mountains and sources of certain metallic ores.  Running water disperses necromantic energies (a classic).  Clouds are sentient, telepathic, and love smoke plumes...and no one knows this.  The elves are preparing for a war next century, but don't know exactly who against.  The dwarven society has a thriving warlock community that dominates the public pantheons from behind the scenes...and they have a plan.

Who is chasing what and why will give you a ton of story...and side-stories...for years.

Enjoy.

Also be prepared to shitcan all of that prepwork when the players do something completely unexpected to derail everything.
