Well, finished the last session of Assassin's of Ordenell, I took it to the extreme and made the assassins all minion, but there was a catch. The minion exploded when they were killed. It made the players think and caused a lot of second guessing until they decided to just smash through them.
We got great feedback from everyone that participated and a great deal of thanks goes out to everyone. For those that particpated send me a message with your name so we can give you credit for all that you have done.
Keep a watch, I am going to start testing Mordakai's Madness in a few weeks and it will be on an odd schedule due to my odd schedule. There will also be a marathon session with it as well.

Wow, just finished up session 4 and starting the final session. The encounter almost decimated the PCs which told me the encounter was too powerful, and need some adjusting. Got great feedback and a big thanks to all that participated.

Well, session three was a wash, unfortunately it was because a few players who joined the table didn't show up. Thanks to Azurel and Justinbass for showing up on the VT.
Now for my rant, why would you join a table and then not show up. That takes a spce away from someone that might want to play and is rude. If you don't think you're gonna make it then withdraw or let the DM know of a conflict, something might be worked out.
It irkes me more, because i live in an area that doesn't have very many gamers if any at all, so the only place I can actually play is on the VT. So when someone decides to join, I expect them to show up, or let me know if they are going to be late. It is just common curteousy.
I am done, and getting off my soap box. I still have...

Wow, had a blast in the first two sessions for Assassin's of Ordenell. Got great feedback from the players, I have to thank Scamman, RedShoesJeff, Psalms, warior4356, justinbass, and everyone else who participated in it. You all did a great job, and threw me a few monkey wrenches which made it even more fun. Beware of the double vortex.
I also have to say that from my position they enjoyed the critical hit and fumble cards. Next session is tomorrow at 11am. I really enjoyed it and will definately be doing more single shots and hopefully a full campaign.
I am sorry I missed warrior4356 single shot session, I hope to catch his next one.
Till the next time.

So we have been working on publishing an campaign, but we need some feedback on what we have. We would like to see if our design format is usable for other DMs. It is a format I have used for years and we are curious if it will translate well into published adventures.
With that said, we have a single encounter that we would like others to playtest. it will be in pdf format. Starting tomorrow June 1, 2012 we will send out upto 10 copies to whoever would like to take a look at it and play test it.
We do want some honest feedback on it. If you are interested send an email to:

Today, my group had a brutal first session of the playtest.
It was mostly due to one of us being a prone to violent ideas. To start, we arrived at the cave and snuck up on the Kobolds loitering outside. We're pretty sure they were too busy picking their noses or something to care. The first Kobold went down to the rogue and combat began.

So we got our tails handed to us in Encounters tonight. Two of us got renown points for taking 50+ damage! I'm not even sure how many monsters we fought. It got a little confusing as several of the drow were going invisible. My drow warlock with all ranged powers got trapped in melee. The party rogue split from the party and spent the entire fight from round one at HP:0. The cleric, despite getting repetitive DR:3, was dropped to -4HP. Our saving grace was our half-orc slayer(?) who had high enough melee bonuses to clobber things in the darkness and our hunter's ability to hit enemies adjacent to each other. Our sorceress did not take any damage! Dang drow!!

I've been playing a desert campaign with 5 friends of mine, and so far, we've been doing good. Unfortunately, I am out of my element. I do best dming horror campaigns inside dungeons and creepy places, but I am terrible in open environment settings.
What would be some good traps for me to set in desert campaigns? Heck, what are some playing fields that could work for me? I've tried placing them in abandoned temples, and I've had them explore and abandoned sand ship. It's worked, but I don't think that they grasp the concept of how dangerous this world is outside of temples...

My name is Jon. About one year ago, I was sitting in a group with two close friends of mine, and we were talking about our dissatisfaction with how some video games really restricted our freedom. We were really into the show "Community", and saw an entire episode dedicated to D&D. From there, we were hooked.
I went to my local bookstore and bought the Dungeons and Dragons Starter Set. Since none of us had played before, we stumbled. Then we died. But from those moments of failure, we started something amazing among our group of friends.
By the end of the first month, I found myself DMing for 8 people on a weekly basis. I made three wonderful new friends who I would never have met had it not been for these sessions. This game became the ultimate release for my creativity, and I...

The group of adventurers awake only to find themselves in the arena again. This time they are placed in the center of a makeshift fort with a ladder leading to a second level in opposit corners. In addition, it appears that they have had a new member added into their ranks, a human by the name of Tetsuo Ashima. As they are preparing themselves the portcullises raise up and several kobolds begin to scamper in on both sides.
Battle immediately begins with several of the kobolds hurling javelins at their nearest opponents and a few running up with spears trying to try and overrun early resistance.
