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.

Hopefully everyone had a good Thanksgiving, for those of who had applications sit unapproved the last week I apologize but I travelling quite extensively.

For those that keep track of such things I was the 71st registered member of the forum, 16 days after it started.  But I was already ancient beyond the reckoning of all things.

I'm glad you're feeling better 👍

Your first post after joining is wishing Jenny well?  You have my respect, welcome.

Whoo!  An update!  Welcome back Jenny!

Chuck Norris. So bad ass that Darth Vader dresses up as Him for Halloween.

Does he just glue a beard to his helmet's faceplate or does he wear Chuck's "Action Jeans" as well?

Yup, it's been a full year. I wonder if this will continue into next January, because that's the last time Jenny posted on the TZH Facebook page.
I hope not.

And oddly enough, Facebook tells me that exactly two years ago I plugged TZH on Facebook.

I was out walking my dogs last night and came across a group of kids frantically trying to find a creepy clown, apparently someone had just tweeted a sighting in the area and they were trying to see it themselves.  So I guess creepy clowns are the new PokeMon go?  I'd say this year couldn't possibly get any weirder but I'm sure the fates would see that as a challenge and call my bluff.
