This group is an experiment in providing feedback for freelance projects, both by myself and others. Projects are posted and discussed in the forums section. I am a firm believer that feedback is vital to a quality project, this gives freelance writers the chance to give and receive feedback.
Playtesting may consist or simple feedback from reading the project, or from actual playtesting in a session.
The rules are simple:
If you have a project, you post it for discussion. By joining this group, you agree not to plagiarize or redistribute other's work. Feedback should be comprehensive and answer the following questions:
Do the rules mesh with existing material (if any)?
Do they make sense? Is there a logical reason for them?
Are the rules well balanced with existing rules or other rules in this book?
Is the text easy to read and understand?
Did you have to frequently refer to other books?
Is there something you feel is missing?
Is there something you feel is unnecesary or irrelevant?
How would you solve these rules problems?
How many hours of gameplay did you spend, and how far did you progress?
How much experience did your party earn?
Were the monster encounters well balanced for the party level?
Were there any character deaths? If so, how did they occur?
Was the story well thought out?
Were the plot points easy to follow?
Were there any "dead spots" in the story? If so, where?
What can be improved in this adventure?
After discussion, the original link to the project can be removed.
There is no compensation, this group is collaborative, and for personal satisfaction. If a writer can provide versions to his or her contributors, they may do so but are not required to do so.
Membership is by invitation only. If you are a freelance writer or willing to be a playtester, please contact me. Members who do not contribute will be removed.
A group for new DM's to meet and share tips, tricks, and suggestions on how best to run a Dungeons and Dragons game.
Share with other DM's your insight, and learn how others are playing the game.
At first, DM'ing can be hard, so why not join others on the same boat as you?
The primary purpose of the Expert Dungeon Master Competitions is threefold:
1. To create a resource for new Dungeon Masters drawing on the vast talent pool of the experienced Dungeon Masters of this forum.
2. To create a fun and vibrant competition that is sportsmanlike and friendly.
3. To showcase the creativity and talent of Dungeon Masters like you.
The competitions generally run for two weeks at a time and are judged by past winners of the competitions. Come on in and give it a try!

A group for writers for the Living Forgotten Realms campaign.
If you have worked on or are working on a writing project for Living Forgotten Realms, please send a request to join this group. Your request will be declined if we are unable to verify your work status.
The official group for the Living Forgotten Realms campaign. Learn about the largest shared-world D&D campaign here, access the community forums, find games, and more!
What is Living Forgotten Realms?
Living Forgotten Realms (or LFR for short) is a regionalized organized play Living campaign, and the first to utilize the new 4th Edition Dungeons & Dragons rules. Players create characters and assign them to a specific region set in the Forgotten Realms. Characters can be played in any LFR adventure that supports their levels of play, anywhere. All non-special LFR adventures will be available for play no matter where you live in the world. As your character plays adventures, it earns experience points, gold, and magic items which stay with you from game to game. There are dozens of unique adventures each year!
What Do I Need to Play?
In order to participate in the Living Forgotten Realms campaign, you’ll need the same things you’d need for any other D&D game (Player’s Handbook, dice, character sheet), plus a few other things.
You’ll need to get an RPGA/DCI number to play, as this will track your play officially. You can obtain an RPGA/DCI number when you attend your first Living Forgotten Realms event, or check out the information posted over at Customer Service (see the link below).
You’ll need to print out your first adventure log and advancement tracker. Both of those documents can be found in the RPGA Character Creation Guide, available on the Living Forgotten Realms website.
You might also want to have a copy of the Forgotten Realms Player’s Guide and have a subscription to D&D Insider. Both of these introduce tons of new options for your character! Grab a Forgotten Realms Player's Guide at your local gaming shop and sign up for D&D Insider at wizards.com/insider.
