What are the top NPC archetypes / classes that you use in D&D sessions? I am thinking: fighter, rogue, cleric, wizard, shaman, illusionist, and necromancer. At some point I did an analysis on this and I recall classes and NPC types like ranger, paladin, monk, etc., rarely came up as NPCs. I'm on the fence about how common druids are.

Based on your feedback I'd then like to figure out what tools best support creating stats for this NPCs -- either something someone has already published or as a new product. Basically, I'm looking for something you can use to create NPCs on the fly without spending a lot of time flipping through books.

Hey RPG peeps! There's a new roleplaying-focused convention starting up this October in the DFW area. Some friends of mine are running it and they're thinking about doing some 'Extreme' roleplaying games with tournaments, themed game rooms, and cool multimedia to supplement the roleplaying games. We'd love your feedback! Take a quick survey to give us your thoughts :-)

Extreme Roleplaying Survey: https://goo.gl/forms/BPSy87uVWjoutCId2

Also, you can visit www.lonestargameexpo.com for more information. Lone Star Game Expo is a tabletop roleplaying, miniatures, and board game event scheduled for Oct. 27-29 in the Dallas/Fort Worth area which will run in October each year.

Quick question from the books: Dresden often refers to his staff and blasting rod -- is this one device (a staff that happens to also be a blasting rod) or is he talking about two devices?

Inspired by Kickstarter’s make/100 initiative, I launched my latest Kickstarter: an old-school bundle of 4 booklets (Almanac, Imaginarium, Session Planner, & Game Diary) to use with ANY game system. I've been using them with D&D 5e and the new Adventures in Middle-earth game but they work well with AD&D, B/X, Swords & Wizardry, Pathfinder, and the like. It's limited to 100 backers, and they're going fast! :-)

I finally have codified how I prep for game sessions, and decided to make it a product.
