Sigh.
My KotOR Characters. Of Course. I'm experiencing some pretty serious DnD burnout. I love spending time with my friends, and I love the fantastic worlds that I get to visit. A majority of my problem, I think, is the long-running basic assumption that DnD cha...

Since I just started rolling on the wilderness table...I had this result come up while I was producing a d20 encounter table for an area. The party I rolled...was...just phenomenal. So, now there's this encounter on that table...with a high-level warrior and his retinue of Cenobite Clerics...I'm not sure how the party will react to that.

If 50 different people give an answer to his question, one of those 50 gets genuine printed books! Let's give him 50!
The name of the game is 'Seven Voyages of Zylarthen'. It's a relatively long, unwieldy and frankly, odd name as these things go, and has thus been abbreviated in at least four ways. More on that in a moment. But first a bit...

DnD-able.
Most of us want to believe that our cities are unique, special snowflakes, unlike anywhere else in the world. But a new study analyzing 131 different city grids has found that every city falls into one of four categories. Staten Island, for example, has a lot in common with the Syrian city of As-Suwayda.

Oooooh. Awesome.

Although the article's title (and editorial framing in general, really) is bizarre and inaccurate. There are four types of street layouts but that doesn't mean there are four types of cities. The article even brings up the obvious counterpoint, New York. Even if you just focus on Manhattan, different parts of the city are radically different in the way they're laid out.

Anglian Religion and World View - Airtha, Fairwhus
Few in mainstream Anglian society dispute Odin and Frigga and their family, or the kinship of the Æsir and the Vanir. They take for granted that these individuals exist as (divine and different) flesh and blood, and that they live in a place called Asgard. ...

These pictures made me think about how much I like running cities in DnD.
Sometimes the only thing more awe-inspiring than a city is a massive model of the city, rendered down to the finest detail. Here are some of the most obsessively-rendered models of cities that you'll ever see. And of course, they're to scale. Which is itself amazing.

This is amazing. It's interesting because tend to draw city maps in just this way, representing each building. Give you a sense of how massive such a map would have to be of you wanted a fantasy Los Angeles (or whatever)

News from Castle Nicodemus
In the year and a half (!) since we last looked in on events in the area around Castle Nicodemus (a pre-empted siege attempt by a company of five score orcs), a mere 3 months have passed in Anglia. All agree the chronological flux between Anglia and Europe ...
In the year and a half (!) since we last looked in on events in the area around Castle Nicodemus (a pre-empted siege attempt by a company of five score orcs), a mere 3 months have passed in Anglia. All agree the chronological flux between Anglia and Europe has become increasingly more erratic.

The maps J.R.R. Tolkien drew to accompany his tales are their own form of story, sketching out the boundaries of his imagined worlds. But could our own, real cities be just as dramatic a fantasy setting? The answer is yes.
