If you're a fan of the Ravenloft setting, then this is the group for you. A home for all those things that go bump in the night - or in the day - and those who love them. Here are the fog drenched forests; the chill winds murmuring through castle ruins; the howl of the wolf upon the moor; the whisper of bat's wings; and the glittering eyes in the dark.
Ravenloft. Come for the nightlife... and stay forever.
This is a group dedicated to the World of Mystara, including its subsettings like the Known World, the Hollow World, the Savage Coast (Red Steel), Thunder Rift, Blackmoor etc ect.

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?
Are you a parent? Have you shared your love of Dungeons and Dragons (and indeed other RPG's) with your little ones yet? If you have, or you plan to do so, then this is the place for you. My name is Roger (Dargurd on the forums) and as of 2012 I have been gaming for about 30 years now (since I was 12 years old). Now I am the proud parent of two 'up and coming' gamers of my own one of which, my eldest, DM's his own 4ed game on a semi-regular basis with his friends. I would love to share my experiences and to hear about your own. :D

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.
