You know the gameshow "Jeopardy", where you have to present you answer in the form of a question?

If you are going to link to a site, it should be a blog. If you want to link to your latest and greatest "Ponyfinder Splat Book", make a blog post about it and link the sales site within the blogpost. This is a community about "blogging", not "selling".

Direct sales links will get deleted when I find them.

Nothing personal when I delete said links.

Don't take it personally if I remove your post for spamming your Kickstarter or business - that is not what this community is for.

Apparently folks don't spend a minute or two looking around and reading posts before posting their spam.

I should point out that I'm not at Strategy for day 2, I knew I wouldn't be needed there for the other days, so I pulled off site after that. However, Simon Burley was down there and sent me a few images to show me how things were going.

By all accounts, busier today, the tournaments drew in better numbers, but as with all tournaments, the players only came for them, rather than the show.

So, some time back I mentioned that there was a new convention coming out that was starting with a very bold four day event and run with 24/7 gaming, this was to be called Strategy Games Con and it was sponsored by MCM expo events.

This last week has seen a few things change in the event, with little to no notice to those attending the event. The first of which was the loss of the thursdays gaming, a change which only became apparent on tuesday, then yesterday the change of times for the event from an 0900 start to a 1300 start.

Suffice it to say that if I hadn't known the person running the event, I would have been curious to see if the rest of the event was going on as planned, and when I got there, it was apparent a number of other people had had similar thoughts.

But I was already down there as I promised I would be, so I dropped in...

Even the more experienced DMs have things they struggle with. In this article I share with you moment where I tried something new and didn't think I did a good job.

http://www.wisdomsave.com/gm-journal/struggle-using-dungeon-modules/
Confession: I’ve never ran a dungeon module before last weekend. For the longest time I looked at them with scorn. They seemed the antithesis to the reason I played D&D. The main purpose for me, often times, is to use it as a creative outlet. If I used modules—they would have taken from that creative …

You did what every great game referee does: show your players an awesome time! They're talking about how much fun they had, right? That's like gold, dude. You'll probably get comfortable being uncomfortable running dungeons soon enough. That's when you'll figure out about planning the baddies tactics and stuff on the fly. :-)

Bill: Some of the new guys seem to have big balls.

Fishman: If you are talking about Ref, it's true. He cut them off a minotaur.

Chu: Or Bolto whenever he is.

Fishman: He's in a better place.
Which is, by definition, anywhere without us.

Is it just me, or do all of James Rollins' Sigma Force novels just scream to be ripped out and converted into adventures for Witch Hunter, Rippers, or Delta Green? Is anyone reading these?
