October 1, 1947 - April 7, 2009
Dave Arneson, co-creator of the original Dungeons & Dragons game, passed away on Tuesday evening, April 7th, after waging one final battle against cancer.
In 1969, when Dave Arneson and Gary Gygax first met at GenCon, both were dedicated...
January 11, 2010 (Renton, Wash.) – Today, Wizards of the Coast LLC announced a new six-book deal with New York Times best-selling author R.A. Salvatore. Published by Wizards of the Coast, the first book is scheduled to release in 2011 with a new book anticipated to follow once per year after that. ...
The time has come to finally be able to get this project underway, and now that I have my co-dm with me once more, we are hoping for the continued success of our very own D&D game here in the forums and chats!
So! We are looking for players, old or young, new or...
Alright, now I'm sure that we've got people here on AF with their fingers in the pie of collectible games. Call it Magic, Yu-Gi-Oh, Monsterpocalypse, Pirates of the Cursed Sea, or even(possibly) Warhammer or Warmachine.
And your options for these come in two flavors(possibly excepting the last...
Hm, surprised I haven't seen a thread on this yet o_o. So who here plays the table top RPG of CoC?
As some of you may or may not be aware I'm working on a home brewed campaign setting recently converted to the Savage Worlds system from D20 Modern/D&D 3.5e. I've completed most of the mechanical items and am working on the campaign map.
This map is a major continental map meant...
When you're new to the D&D game, the sheer variety of character sheets available, both in print and online, can bring on a headache. Even after you've chosen a character sheet, you face the task of filling it out. The task isn't terribly difficult, but it's hardly intuitive. That's because...
How amazing. ^_^
This whole Dungeon Mastering thing has gone to my head. I知 on a quest to get everyone I know to play D&D. I知 like a jazzed up, hyper-competitive Mary Kay saleswoman bound and determined to sell enough lip gloss and firming eye cream to get behind the wheel of my very own pink Cadillac. I threaten...
Trying something new for you all! A creature of the week! I'll start it out with something to be posted, and then all that want to take a hand into it, can post and comment, and toss out suggestions for others!
My first pick!
Dragons are widely renowned as some of...
I'm currently in the process of making a scout-based rogue. However, not being familiar with scouts, and only a little familiar with rogues in general, I'm having difficulty choosing which skills to work on. So far, I've gone with the following:
Has anyone else come across a copy of one of the manuals? What did you think of it?
I think it's horrible. It's barely recognizable: the spell system has been simplified into a number of (boring) powers you can cast either at will, once per encounter, or once per day. And rituals.
Is it just me, or do my room mates words sum it up best.
"You have half elves, full elves, and double elves."
In reference to the Eladrin or what ever they are called. Does the game really need 3 forms of elves. They don't even mention drow, but prehaps that's because people don't want to...
I have discovered a series of games on FaceBook that allow you to play other games and things like this:
And recently I found a Dungeon and Dragons Mod that uses 4th gen rules to roleplay in short missions and quests. I...
Well as I mentioned in my GM ideas thread I'm working on a 28 Days Later 'Viral Zombie' campaign. The primary focus would be on survival, fast zombies, and a somewhat plausible, non-undead zombie plague.
As with every campaign I've ever done, especially in D20, I've always tried to change at...
Just curious, what do you you all like more DND 3.5 or 4.0? I feel that both have their strong points. But on the flip side 4.0 has way more weak points, in my opinion. It is layed out much like WoW. I already play enoug ( when home) of the game. I don't want it in my DnD as well
a while back - when i still lived in the states and had time - i use to play my fair share of pen and paper rpgs which i miss dearly (yes some do exsist here in japan, but its not too popular and super rare to find).
one i played was world of darkness. you know everything made by white wolf?...
Has anyone ever faced off with a dragon in a D&D campaign? How well did it go. Usually all my campaigns have been fairly low level.
I've been invited to join an Exalted game in a few weeks, and I know...pretty much nothing about the system. Any words of advice?
What faith do your characters follow and why did you choose them? Or are you partial towards any particular one?
I guess I won't have time to start a game for another month or more. But at some point I probably will and wanted to talk about formats.
Now that standard forum RPG format is player driven freeform, where each player more or less is a demigod within their post. Having variable amounts of...
I post them here because they both have similar physics.
Kingdom of Loathing:
Fun little online game where you create a character, wander around a little world where everything you do seems to a parady of something. It also has Pastamancers.
i used to play the games workshop fantesy games and continued to -still play the americajn football one, i wondered wether there was anyone else who used to or still plays them?
GM段ng/DM段ng/Storytelling is not an easy job. In fact in terms of workload in a tabletop roleplaying the GM has probably the hardest job of all. Running a game, telling a story and trying to keep all the players happy. I was thinking of making a series of threads presenting various hypotheticals....
Well, my first post in this new Forum which I've been awaiting for quite a while. I plan on making it my new home (a migration from the Gundam Subforum).
I've currently working on planning a very large scale Legend of the Five Rings campaign that will probably cover a time frame of...
Yeah, I know that you probably came in here thinking about the comic series, but no, this isn't about it. I'm looking for a group to play with on the internet. Preferably DnD v3.5, but I do play 4ed.
I have been looking for a while, but haven't found anyone to play with.
NOTE: I can't DM...
Alright! Admit it! WHO plays?
I know there are a lot of you out there, and I am very curious to see who and how many there are. I recently had something proposed to me, and I would like to see how possible it might be.
Anyone play Magic Online through WOTC?
For those MTG players, what decks/colors/themes do you use? For those players that make their own decks, how do you decide what goes into it?
I have a standing count of roughly 35 decks, about 10 of which are tried, tested, and true, and four are my best.
I have a token deck that...
Disclaimer: While this short post focuses on D&D 3rd ed./3.5 ed. this can easily be applied to other systems.
Now I know D&D is the absolute staple RPG. Everyone who has played tabletop has played D&D. The thing is, D&D is a very, very forgiving system often tweaked to the players favor. Now,...
