I just realized it's probably a good idea to get a common header in the titles so they can all be grouped together somehow, so I'll be prefacing these entries with The Banished: from now on, and I'll go see if I can retrofit it into my previous posts.

Before their very first mission is over, I am already regretting having the clerk request the ears of their vanquished foes ...
The group had little trouble handling the pack of unprepared goblins. Cais had a tendency to insert himself into the center of a swarm of stabbing spears, while Ashiga couldn't seem to extract herself fast enough. Ereven deftly twisted through the straglers in the back to strike at the goblin's shaman, and found himself blinded by the dark taint of Maglubiyet for his troubles. As the goblins fell, the shaman called out a retreat to notify 'The Boss' and the few left standing ran in different directions. Snow transformed into a bear and ripped the throat out of one runner, and Mazama tossed an eldritch blast that reduced the last goblin standing (actually...

Little did I know that when the party chose the name The Banished that they were actually stating a goal. Their first day of duty resulted in them being kicked out of nearly every establishment they visited ...
The stockaded New Phlan bustled with newly arrived mercenaries exploring their new surroundings and the local businesses seeking to wring out as much coin as they could before it was lost out in the wilder parts of the Old city. The Cracked Crown Inn, finest establishment in the entire city, as well as its neighbor The Goblin's Bucket, seediest tavern this side of the stockade, were both overflowing around the corner. Ereven wrinkled his nose as he sidestepped a collapsed drunkard freshly thrown from the Bucket's front window. A weary guard blew his whistle and began hauling...

I have recently migrated my group from 3.5 to 4e, and the campaign they are cutting their teeth on is my adaptation of FRC1 Ruins of Adventure, more popularly known as Pool of Radiance. The game has been going on for about six weeks now, so the beginning will be a bit of catch-up.

Hello, my name is Sam, and I'm a chronic Dungeon Master.
It's been awhile since I've worn the proverbial pointy hat of the DM, at least in its usual guise. It's true, I'm the Game Master of a vaguely D&D based LARP, and I did run a 4th edition game some time back set in the X-Crawl milieu, but neither of those are really quite the same thing. GMing a LARP is a delicate balance of player goals and long-term plots, a constant exercise in compromise between me and the three other GMs, and a host of other things I'll write about at a later date; X-Crawl was pure, unabashed dungeon crawl which, after four sessions, I found exceedingly boring to run. By the end of summer, I was itching to return to my roleplaying roots.
Return to my roots, to be sure, but also exceed them. In part, the origins...

This week I give you a few news 'toys' for your Pathfinder or 3.5 Campaigns. 3 New feats and a new player class, The Revenant. For awhile I wanted to personally play an undead race that did not have a crazy ECL or level adustment. I didn't want to strip and undead down to bare bones (hehe) to play it. Instead I took the Eberron Warforged race and modified it to suit the role of an undead hero. If all goes as planned the next article will include adventure hooks, racial feats, a new spelland some specialized equipment for Revenants.

Session 1: The game kicks off with the southern wall of Loudwater being blown up, a stream of goblins rushing through the wreckage in search of ‘The Horn Totem’ which they have been told resides in Loudwater in a shop called ‘Garawan’s Curiosities.’
