To be honest, when I lived in England, it was hard to find a DnD group I was looking all over. Then all of a sudden I had a group, I was going frequently and unfortunately I had to move. Now one would think that Wales would be a hive of role-playing, story telling. Alas... after weeks of searching I have only found two groups, one is over the border back in England, the other is...well the other side of Wales.
So I have to wonder why. Why is Dungeons and Dragons not popular in Wales. Thus in the attempt to conjure up some story telling and bad acting alike I started the Ceiber Legends in the hope that there are some people somewhere, searching for a Dungeons and Dragons group.

So I went to the City (60mi away as some viewers may know) and went to my hobby shop, Gnome Games, where I found someone begining to price D&D minis on the front counter of the shop side (Tournament Center, not East Town Mall) and one praticular caught my eye, a limted edition werewolf mini. As some of you know I LOVE werewolves. I snatched it quick, and saw other badass pieces I would love to collect, a Demonic Gnoll Priestess, a Gnoll, Hero of Valhalla, a Wood Elf Ranger, Halfling Sneak, and a Mercenary Sergent. Cost around $35, worth it. Before that I checked out the comic book store (what my brother was buying from) Power's Comics a few doors down from Gnome Games Tournament Center. Some interesting things, but I did not buy it, a Star Wars: The Old Republic #2 (new, yes Wednesday so...

<<<<< Reprint from Dungeon Magazine >>>>>
The Scales of War Adventure Path kicks off in dramatic fashion in issue #156 with "Rescue at Rivenroar," by industry veteran David Noonan. The town of Brindol has experienced a time of peace after the tumultuous war with the goblins of the Red Hand. The town has rebuilt and even constructed a memorial dedicated to the champions who freed the Elsir Vale from the grip of fear and tyranny. But now several citizens of the town have gone missing, and relics of the war have been stolen, leading many to wonder if Brindol will ever find peace. The PCs must discover what has happened to these unfortunate townsfolk and bring them back alive -- if possible.

So here it is! The NEW installment of Roguehorse Gamer News. For those of you who followed through (or ever noticed) the old WordPress RGN, after a few months of working with and talking with my gaming buddies it just seemed "normal" to just go ahead and ditch the old WP blog and migrate everything over here to the Wizards community pages.
Seems to make more sense than to try and moderate both blogs in the same place when the RGN is primarily focused on our weekly game, which recently has been more like a "weakly" game. That's kind of what happens though with a group of 5-6 people all trying to juggle schedules around to make time to role play. :panic:
As for myself personally, I'm thinking of adding more interest into the "gaming" part of my life. Not so much because I have nothing...

With the recent news that Amazon.com lists what appears to be a player's book of elemental power source material, I thought it would be worthwhile to throw together a few concrete examples of what an elemental class could be. My hope is to produce a total of four level 1 PCs more or less ready for play at something like an Encounters session, one for each role.
First up is the xaosmith, a defender that channels their strength through a blob of tumultuous elemental chaos matter called a chaos node, from which they can create a weapon identical to whichever one they hold at the moment, allowing them to make melee attacks from a great distance and to be effectively in two places at once. While the chaos node can be used simply as a way to extend the range of your defender abilities,...

Okay so to begin with I'm a big fan of the dungeons and dragons game, I play it every week (in fact its one of the highlights of my week) - - - This is an excellent play to throw out some of the exciting things that are happening in the game and exactly what's going on within our characters lives.
I also take it as a chance to plug a website, my website, dedicated to the game...
Visit it and hopefully you'll enjoy

Over the weekend we played a game of Dungeons and Dragons. Normally I am DM and run the games, but thankfully Dan stepped up to the plate and ran a game. It was good to be a player again. I love running the games but every now and then it is nice to sit down and just roll some dice and kill some monsters. Dan planned out a really cool little quest, built off the movie “Evil Dead”, he did a wonderful job tossing some cool creatures at us and working on the fly. I say this last part because my character died and I had to make another one real quick and insert it in to the adventure. So here is how that went down, we all found amulets, those amulets then tossed us into a strange rooms, where we each had to undergo skill challenges, these challenges...

Hey I just wanted to drop everybody a line and let people know that I changed my webcomic up. I decided that to many other people are creating comics about gamers, and doing it with a better voice then I was. I changed up the comic and made it all about two dwarves living in a high fantasy world. So if you are interested I would love for everybody to drop by and give the comic a chance. If comics are not your thing, no worries, I wont be hurt if you pass the comic up. you can find my comic here at www.fotding.com I hope you have a good day and good games later.

There's a lot of talk in the forums about Heroes of Shadow, and two of the most talked-abouts from the book are the "underpowered" Shade race, and the Blackguard.
After seeing the preview and some leaked spoilers about the Blackguard, I thought it was probably the best class to represent one of my favorite types of warrior of all-time.
Meet the Dark Eldar Incubus, from Games Workshop's Warhammer 40k!
It's clearly a shock-troop type, and dark enough both in flavor and appearance to scream for the Blackguard class as its representation in D&D. Also, even if in theory the Dark Eldar are from a fantastic far away future, nothing about this concept would look out of place in a typical fantasy world.
Now, Dark Eldar are basically the dark elves of space. They are a depraved race that must...

I don't understand Edition Wars.
I mean, I don't mind voicing my concerns and viewpoints, but I don't understand why it has to become a 'you vs. me' situation. Why can't we simply discuss our likes and dislikes and appreciate each other's stance? I mean, in the end, if you think 3.5 was the pinnacle of the D&D experience, then you have nothing but my support, and I will HAPPILY play 3.5 at your table! After all, I'm really here for your friendship (and your Cheetos) in the first place. I just hope that, when you come to play at my table and I pull out 4E that you also show the same courtesy, even if it isn't your game of choice.
So, when it comes to Essentials vs. PHB (or whatever we're calling it) style builds, I feel the same way. At my table I will...
