Why have I never had this problem? Am I doing something wrong? Or am I doing something right? I do have shops that sell magic items, but I don't have magic shops of endless wonders. I do have a wizard in the party with crafting feats, but since a day crafting magic items is a day not adventuring, he hasn't done a lot of crafting. The party's gold supply is dependent upon what they're able to pull out of the dungeon, so they're not swimming in coins like Scrooge McDuck. Tracking mundane expenses like arrows and inn stays also means that treasure is not pure profit and a day without treasure is a day that spends more than it earns.

I'm definitely not cranking out magic items anytime soon at the rate things are going, and we haven't been bringing in much gold anyway.. And, I feel as though the adventure , what awesome things we find in the dungeon, and the experience and treasure (magical and otherwise) is still very much a reward. Like you said,"[we're] not swimming in coins like Scrooge McDuck." haha . I like the points that Ed The Bard makes. However, I had this little thought that went,"what if this sort of devalues the gold coin?" Anyway.. I don't want to get into arguing whatsoever :P I really Like the way you run things as a DM, but if you'd like to change things for the better.. talk to us about it a bit. Ask us questions if you are doubting your abilities in any way as a DM or think you want to tweak the way things are run/work . 

BTW I'm pretty excited for next session, always! Can't wait to here how Dundracon went! See you then.

Where I'm Going
Don't worry. As a blogger, I'm still here. It may come in fits and starts, but I don't think I'm leaving the blogosphere any time soon. My physical self, however, is getting ready to travel. DunDraCon is next month and I haven't missed one yet. Well, there ...

Through Tuesday, December 29, our all-new 13th Age Bundle features the bestselling tabletop fantasy roleplaying game 13th Age from Pelgrane Press. Created by Rob Heinsoo and Jonathan Tweet, lead designers of the 3rd and 4th Editions of D&D, 13th Age combines the best parts of traditional d20 fantasy RPGs with new story-focused rules, so you can run the kind of game you most want to play and focus on what's always been cool and fun about fantasy adventure gaming. Play 13th Age as a standalone game, or use it as a source of cool ideas and add-on rules for your favorite FRPG.

This bargain-priced collection includes rules, monsters, treasures, adventures, and even music -- everything you need to run your own 13th Age campaign in the Dragon Empire or the setting of your choice. For just US$19.95 you get all three titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $62) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks and .MP3 music tracks, including the complete 325-page 13th Age rulebook (retail price $25), the 13 True Ways rules expansion (retail $21) and the huge 13th Age Soundtrack (retail $16) with over 20 tracks of atmospheric music for play sessions.

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $32.95 to start, you level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with four more titles (retail value $64):

Eyes of the Stone Thief (retail $25): Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan's massive 364-page campaign in pursuit of, and inside, a colossal living megadungeon.
13th Age Bestiary (retail $21): A horde of new creatures that work as both monsters and rivals, with hundreds of variant versions plus adventure hooks, advice on building battles, and items you'll find in their lairs.
Book of Loot (retail $9): A 72-page collection of hundreds of new treasures.
Shadows of Eldolan (retail $9): An ideal introductory adventure set in a small town with duelling wizards' schools.

The whole collection would cost you US$126 from a gnome merchant in Glitterhaegen, City of Coins, or perhaps even closer to home. Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) is split evenly between the two charities chosen by Pelgrane Press co-owner Simon Rogers, Global Fund for Women and Rape Crisis Network Ireland. And if you buy early, you'll automatically receive anything new we add later -- even the cool, exclusive stuff.

This 13th Age Bundle vanishes into the Underworld Tuesday, December 29.

Not What I Wanted, But It'll Have To Do
Of course, once I am home from the con, it's time for me to tell you all about the cool stuff I bought. Unfortunately, I didn't buy very much cool stuff this year. The main reason for this was a lack of core product for sale. For example: One item that was ...

I need to get a bit more comfortable with online gaming, hopefully as a player first, before I do something big and brave like run something.

Through Monday, December 7, we present the Indie Cornucopia +3, the third annual installment in our Thankgsiving series of offers featuring recent top-shelf small-press tabletop RPGs. Pay just US$5.95 to get all three games in our Starter Collection (retail value $34) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:

- Circle of Hands (retail price $15): From Ron (Sorcerer) Edwards, a Dark Ages fantasy about survivorship in the Crescent Land, where wrought iron clashes with white and black magic.
- Nefertiti Overdrive (retail $11): Wire-fu action set in ancient Egypt. Time to kick Assyrians in the face!
- Starfall (retail $8): In 1951 aliens attacked Earth and easily won. Humanity has been enslaved. There is no hope -- or is there?

And if you pay more than the threshold (average) price, which is set at $12.95 to start, you'll level up and also get our entire Bonus Collection with three more games (retail value $35):

- The Clay That Woke (retail $14): Stoic minotaurs in a crumbling civilization beset by a voracious jungle. A Kickstarter hit from Paul (My Life With Master) Czege.
- The Gaean Reach (retail, $9): Robin D. Laws (GUMSHOE, The Dying Earth) helps you seek vengeance against Quandos Vorn in the stellar society of Jack Vance's "Demon Princes" and "Alastor Cluster" novels.
- Urban Shadows (retail $12): Political machinations of vampires, faeries, hunters, and wizards in a modern city, powered by the Apocalypse Engine rules.

That's a $69 value for a bargain price. Ten percent of each purchase (after gateway fees) goes to this offer's designated charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation. And if we make this Cornucopia yet more plenteous by adding another title later, you'll receive it automatically.

But the seemingly inexhaustible Horn of Plenty in this Indie Cornucopia +3 runs out Monday, December 7. Don't go hungry!
