The Cave Of The Mongoose ( Another example of Wand Power) Part 1 Bells, here once again. This is an adventure recently taken with a fellow Paladin, remember him from my funhouse? If not, it’s all right, you will now. As I have said before The Wand of Wonder is a curious weapon. However, it makes for surprising results in adventures. This one is no different but I think you will enjoy reading this one because it involves two other players, one being the Paladin and the other is an Elf fighter (my 11 year old son) Elric. Jingles his clever self, created this adventure and took us through this complicated tale of a legendary thief that called himself ‘ The Mongoose’. Nobody knew where this thief’s lair was hidden for many years. Some say he was untouchable,

Foggy Bog is going to try something new when it comes to role-playing games. We're going to let the players read, take notes, and make personal copies of all the information normally held "DMs Eyes Only" sacrosanctly secret.
Part of the reason is that the player's invest a lot of time and emotion into their characters, while the DM is methodically efficient at being brutally vicious. One 'guideline' the DM likes to ignore is the level appropriateness of monsters for the total party level. In fact, a couple months ago, he wrote a blog citing an encounter (he and only he ran through with his own 1st level characters) where a low level party was without the use of any automatic hit spell capable of getting a slightly better than 50-50 chance of defeating a 19th level minion.

Some thinking on the resource that you might or might not find of use.
I went to "The Unspoken Tower" adventure and began to think about how to organize the adventure on the virtual table taking into account that someday someone else might run the adventure and the adventure's particular quirks. "The Unspoken Tower" is designed to account for anywhere between 1 and 8 player-characters and it begins the Zenobaal Campaign for Foggy Bog.
The following is a rewritten version of the original blog post.
The main objective was to put the entire adventure on one map in such a fashion that a person with no knowledge of the adventure could, with little prepartion, DM the adventure.
The original idea was to have arrows on the map helping...

Just in time for a long holiday weekend of gaming (at least, here in the USA), I am pleased to announce that EPIC3-2 Cracks in the Crimson Cage is now available for download from www.livingforgottenrealms.com!
Continuing the story from EPIC3-1 The Glorious Hunt, EPIC3-2 is a three-round adventure for 22nd-level characters. (If you haven't gotten to play EPIC3-1 yet, you can still play EPIC3-2 by increasing your level 21 character to level 22 for the duration of the adventure, but of course we strongly recommend that you play the Epic Campaign adventures in order.)
EPIC3-2 Cracks in the Crimson Cage
Mortal heroes have just foiled a plot to assassinate a god and despoil his realm. The perpetrators' trail leads to Carceri,...

Jingles, here to bring you a very important discussion of what not to do on an adventure with a jester in your party.
Why do other party members, assume that when they hire a jester, they can pick on us as if we are nothing more than idiots and fools and easily expendable? After all, you hired us for a reason. Hopefully for not just a joke. We do have skills, other than throwing a rubber chicken at someone's head. We may be thieves, or a fighter as well as seeing the world as a big fat joke. But I bet you never figured that we are one step ahead of you, figuring out what your about, before you even know. Didn't think that did you? Hhhmm.
For instance in an adventure a few years back, a fighter (We'll call him...Bob). Bob was a cocky son of a bitch. Hiring me for a job just for my thieving...

May is going to be a big month for new LFR adventure releases. I'm pleased to report that LURU2-4 Need to Know (one round; H2) and PREQ3-1 Shrouded Visions (half-round or about 2 hours; covers the entire Heroic tier) are now available for download from www.livingforgottenrealms.com. Here are the details:
LURU2-4 Need to Know
Records containing sensitive information on Silverymoon's defenses have fallen into the wrong hands. Now you must race against time to recover these records before they can be used against the Gem of the North. A Living Forgotten Realms adventure set in Luruar for characters levels 4-7 (H2 level band). This adventure is the second and final part of the Forbidden Lore Major Quest, which began with LURU2-3 Forgotten...

The mid-year convention season will soon be upon us, and we've got a full slate of new and exciting LFR content planned for both Origins 2011 (June 22-26) and Gen Con 2011 (August 4-7).
Since we know that Gen Con event registration will be opening soon (May 1st) and DM registration for Gen Con is already open, we'll focus on Gen Con in this blog post and talk about Origins in the next blog post.
General information about Gen Con 2011 can be found here:
We always need lots and lots of DMs -- Gen Con is the largest convention of the year from an Organized Play standpoint. Fortunately, The Baldman (aka Dave C) is once again the Senior DM for Gen Con, and is now accepting DM applications through his Baldman Games website:

After some discussion with the Organized Play staff at Wizards, we've decided that it makes more sense to distribute public-play adventures directly instead of asking people to go through the RPGA/WPN ordering system. We don't want to make people jump through the hoop of sanctioning a WPN event just to get an LFR battle interactive or other special event, because it just creates another different place where people have to look in order to get their hands on LFR adventures (in addition to the LFR Community download site and the LFR Adventure Archive [warning: the LFR Adventure Archive link takes to you a ~50MB ZIP file]).
However, we don't want to give up our ability to track conventions, game days, retail store games, and other public events that are running these special...

I love just coming up with a quick adventure concept and running it with very little planning. I kind of just try to follow a general "feeling" for the adventure. I do prepare but maybe only an hour for a four hour adventure.
Finding that Story
In my mind, today's (4e) Dungeons and Dragons is more like a fast paced choose your own adventure instead of the old method of tracking every little detail like you would find in 1st or 2nd edition. But when it comes down to it, Dungeons and Dragons is a story in which the players determine the course and the DM determines the events. That at the essence is the core of every great game. DM's that create their world and want the adventure to go 1, 2, 3 are going to find that players are really good at throwing a wrench into anything. Instead, a...

Two new adventures are now available for download from the LFR Community download page at www.livingforgottenrealms.com. One is the long-awaited adaptation of a great Paragon-tier Forgotten Realms adventure from Dungeon Magazine, while the other is the long-awaited conclusion to the Paragon-tier "Queen of Thorns" Major Quest from the region of Cormyr.
ADAP2-01 Monument of the Ancients
Panicked refugees are pouring into the port city of Phlan, fleeing from barbarian attacks in the Moonsea North. Something ominous and ancient drives the horse nomads to attack their neighbors. Poised to shatter the ancient monument keeping him from Faerun, a lost god from Toril's past sends an agent from the Elemental Chaos to herald his long-prophesized...
