once upon a time i had bookmarked a really awesome table of hilarious alternatives to critical hits. it didn't deal with extra damage or lopping off limbs, but it had effects like 'unbuckled' wherein the opponent had to take a turn pulling their pants back on. anyone know where i can find such a thing?

about to start a campaign with multiple dms in the same setting. 'the known world' is just a central town, and in each cardinal direction from that locus is the territory of a dm. this would let busy dms take a day off if needed and the group could party on somewhere else in the map with the same characters. anyone tried anything like this?

the best part of this post is the post script. i never thought of having an ascending chart that you could roll different size die on based on conditions. while having everything mapped out seems cool, i think its not entirely necessary. approaching a city's walls? d4. shopping in the market? d6. snuck into the local aristocrat's palace and rolled a 'graveyard' on your d12? why does she have graves in the palatial gardens...? 

so i'm new around here, and i'm a gamer. while i signed up at the launch, until now i've only used g+ to hangout and play dnd online. which is cool, but i want to be more involved in the gaming community. now i'm trying to develop a profile and comment on posts, and even create original content to share. if you have any tips on how to be more involved, or can link me to awesome resources or people, please let me know.

The Human Impact

As a photographer that is tasked with documenting life on this planet, there are many things that I come across on my travels that leave me disgusted, depressed and in a bad mood. This image below is one of those scenes. While I did not take this photo, I can relate, having seen similar dumping sites while diving in various regions of our beautiful oceans.

UPDATE:

For everyone that wants a little backstory:

"In 1972, a nonprofit group came up with a brilliant idea: Create a three-mile-long artificial reef off the South Florida coast using 2 million old tires. Goodyear donated the rubber, Broward County forked over the funds, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers signed off. The plan quickly went to hell, however. Coral didn't grow on the tires. Fish didn't flock to the rubber reef. Then the tires began coming loose, crashing around in the current and destroying natural reefs nearby. The environmental effort became an ecological disaster."
