Tip: Interact with NPCs to Receive Quests

Everyone knows that the easiest way to start an adventure is to just have some damned NPC show up and tell the PCs what to do and how to do it. After all, that’s what MMORPGS do and it works for them. So why not do the same in D&D? Because Quest Givers can be so much more than expository text. Don’t waste that potential.

GM Word of the Week: Mountebank

Among the many magic items in D&D, the cape of the mountebank stands out. Not because of it's apparently simple teleportation effect, but because of its flashy appearance, it's smoke and mirrors special effects, and it's odd name. Just who IS the mountebank?

A man with a flashy cape can go a long way with just a puff of smoke and some fancy talk, but what is it about the Cape of the Mountebank that hints at something larger and much, much more entertai…

A Very Angry GenCon

Want to know what I’ve been up to for the last week? I was at GenCon! And here’s a whole bunch of stuff about what went on there. Pictures, videos, very personal inspirational stories, me in a dress, and so on.

Here Comes Tagalong: Henchmen, Allies, and DMPCs

Tagalongs: NPCs that join the party. They are often derided, frequently misunderstood, and rarely used well. Because people are dumba$&es. Which is sad because Tagalongs are a GREAT Tool for your GMing Toolbox!

Ask Angry: Oh No, More Answers

It’s time for yet another Ask Angry blitz! And the first two questions I answer are a little bit of site news. And then I answer real questions. Yay!

GM Word of the Week: Glue

It is weirdly anachronistic. It seems out of place. And it hardly seems like magic at all. And yet, it is generally considered the single most powerful, most versatile magic item in all of D&D.

http://www.madadventurers.com/gm-word-of-the-week-glue/
Oh sure, you know all about glue. You smear it on, it sticks things together, big deal. But why, then, is there glue in D&D? And what is so special about it that it has teased the minds of play…

The Angry GM Plays Reflections at GenCon

Surprise! At GenCon, Jim McClure made me play his new game about samurai killing each other. And we recorded it. And you can listen to it. Lucky you.
