My current gaming group (under the rubric of Saturday Night Game Studios) has been involved in a D&D 4th Edition campaign since the new version's release. Although we took about a 3 month hiatus at the end of last year, we've been running pretty much weekly games with very few interruptions in our "Points of Light" (PoL) campaign setting, The Bannerlands
I've been DMing for over 30 years, and have more home-brew and published campaign settings than I care to count. However, when 4th Edition came out, I decided to play it "straight out of the box" - no house rules, no changes, no addenda. Although I didn't need the hand-holding, I simply followed all the advice as written in the PHB and DMG (in terms of XP awards, encounter design, treasure parcels, etc), and also generated a brand...

Almost as soon as 4e was announced, I was hooked like a lazy fat fish. So, like many others, I started a campaign in June 08, when 4e was released.
I run a blog to keep information available for myself and my players.
This is the blog: draegor.blogspot.com/
Most of the posts are short summaries from the sessions (50 at the time of posting), mixed with the world info available to the players.

I have been running my first game for the last several months. We meet every other week, usually, on Friday nights. We're usually at a couple of tables in the back of the FLGS. I started off with a group of four plus a DMPC running through the Keep on the Shadowfell. The second time we met, we had a fifth PC, yet Irontooth delivered my first TPK. When the new party formed three weeks later, we had a solid party with six members, none of them DM run.
I ran them through Kobold Hall to start with. That first night, they only made it through the first four encounters. When the encountered the finale of Kobold Hall next session, that fight plus the immediate aftermath ate up our whole night, and was one of the best sessions we've had.
After that, I had laid of some clues leading to Irontooth...

So we started a new Eberron campaign. We had an old campaign that we were playing and stopped due to things not really working the way all the players liked. So we are starting new but with the same level character we ended the last game at. We figured if we don't start at that level (8th level) and started all over at 1st it may be years before we see Paragon or Epic levels.
So we have a new game going, first session went well but due to schedules we are off for 2 weeks. Although I have found some very broken stuff when I made my character and I am going to post my character here for those that want an ultimate healing Cleric.

Summer is ending and so has our d&d campaigns.
I was running the Scales of War campaign to moderate success and playing in a homebrew setting that was mixing magic and technology. Fun was had in both campaign, some good PCs were crafted and NPCs developed. But it is time to look forward to our future adventures.
For my next campaign I am planning on writting my own arc and setting, something I have not done for a few years now. Some of the big problems I had in the past was over protecting my favorite NPCs and creating too linear of a path.
To this effect I have decided to write a more eposodic campaign. My plan is to write up 3 to 4 loosly fitted stories. Each story will run the PCs through 3 to 4 levels. The goal here is to have enjoyable sessions each month that are fresh and entertaining....

I decided to get a little obsessed and play around with blogger to put together a site for my next campaign. I've run a 3.5 campaign once, that went on for a very long time and never got finished (woops). Now I'm excited about doing another one in 4E.
It'll be 5 players, mostly from a close group of friends in Houston, though I expect we'll probably have a slot open and end up making a new friend. As I'm not a designer, and I haven't done a blog before, feel free to comment on some blogger tips and tricks, better color and font choices, or whatever.
Come the endish of the year when we start this, I'll be posting stories, pictures, maps, whatever from the game up there, so anyone obsessed with such things can follow along in the story....

Welcome to red_scare's blog!
I will be blogging the events of the 4th edition game I'm playing in as well as a few other things that are D&D related. The game hasn't started yet but there's a preliminary meeting this Saturday. I am going to be playtesting the Monk as a matter of fact so stay tuned!
