Leveling Up & A New House Rule

Magical Items II
As previously noted, incredibly heroic actions can sometimes imbue weapons, armor, or other items with magical power, granting bonuses or abilities to their users. Other magical items have been upgraded by less fantastic (though still magical) means; +1 shi...

Makin' Money Mashin' Mooks
As the elven polydoctorate needed two weeks of bedrest, the various members of the party looked for some more henchmen. Rig took the initiative to go looking for some help to hopefully capture some hippogriff eggs; after a couple weeks of advertising, he hi...

Mor-Thir's Demand Modifiers
Now, demand modifiers don't mean everything. In the grand scheme of things, they're important, but for day-to-day player business, it's only a rough guideline. Prices are only marginally based on demand modifiers; that's why they're called modifiers, and no...

Week 1: Fighting? What Fighting?
Satyrday, 6637/4/28 Introducing the Party Three adventurers happened to meet at the Low Bridge in Riverbend; the first, a gnomish beastmaster, was in Riverbend to buy a war badger. In this case, said badger was a dog. The second, a charismatic leader, fresh...

Improv Generators
In any situation (not just RPGs, or even games in general, but Real Life (tm) too), being able to think on your feet is a very important ability to have. Ever watch an improv show and wonder how those people could come up with so many funny gags in such a s...

Story Flow
In the previous adventure I ran, keeping track of loose ends was easy - they were built right in. I'd written a story, given the players the illusion of control, and allowed the story to play out around them. Apart from a few tweaks here and there ("Oh, the...

My sons wanted a board game birthday party, so what kind of cake do you make? Board games. Boom. Carcassonne, Stratego, legos, chess, and three cards: ace of spades, uno skip card, and the +5 Skin of Really Hard Stuff super munchkin card. Oh, and two dice :-)

In which there is tragedy and loss.
6637/5/6 to 6637/5/27 Before the Bardbarian tour packed up and headed to Wallace, Rid decided to scout out the area; he picked up a bunch of rare books for a pretty good deal, and found a very smart baby ape to train, and a giant shrew to add to his menager...

End of the the Prequel
Thus far, the stories, maps, timelines and histories have been a prequel of sorts. I've taken you, my readers, on a journey of discovery, wandering through time and geography on the continent of Mor-Thir. When I started, I had a pretty good idea of what was...
