Re: Seeking help with the old modules original content

Lots of good advice... I'll add a little detail, when I run a module the first thing I do is get out a sheet of paper (or open a new document) and write out each monster from the module with the C&C details from the M&T if they exist and if not with the stats I want to use. I also start counting how...

Re: Playing at the Table

I guess #3 .. Once we had miniatures (sometime in the early 80's) we used it for marching order. Combat was verbal. Eventually there would be a rough layout of Monster figures (or dice or whatever). Very rare their would be a "battle mat", if fact I think 2 or 3 times, the temple of the Dragon where...

Re: Forums Link on Main Page

I'm a fan of the stopfourmspam dot com API on another forum I even embed a simple lookup in the posting code so that at any point if the poster is on their naughty list they can't post at all. Works pretty well.

Re: Bard Countersong - 7th printing?

There is a reason words like "enterprising" are used in a monster write up...

And, yes, blindness may also prevent attacks of vi...
