This is an excerpt from Khrahdûm "Ironflute" Hect's raw journal. It is not his book of verse or prose. "I was earning my keep as a bard in the village Inn, when strange events began to take place, clearly a story needing a bard's presence to record for the sake of posterity..."
Those that preordered the Loremaster's Guide for the Open Game License (OGL) of D&D 5th Edition (5e) adaptation to Middle-earth based on Cubicle 7's The One Ring RPG (TOR) back in April 2016, recently received notification that there will be a further delay in release of the PDF...

Tonight I begin play-testing the brand new Cryptomancy RPG by Chad Walker. It is a role-playing game specifically useful for teaching the basics of Information Security (InfoSec) to laymen (and professionals), in a fun way. It is first and foremost designed as a fun fantasy RPG setting (with the InfoSec twist), that just happens to teach basic InfoSec concepts and good (and bad) practices as a byproduct of participation.
Tweet from ImaWEEZARD: "Hey there quick question! does a dragonborn paladin have to only warship Bahamut or tiamat? Or can they have a different god?"
Spocon needs people to help fill many, many, many roles, please contact them right away to join in the fun!
Greetings fellow RPGers. Surprisingly I had 5 different people this week asking about open games (mine are all full and wait-listed), and I noticed only a few groups posting on various sites right now, though many are active in this area. I mentioned the various Facebook RPG & LARP groups (among others), but several of them stated they won't use Facebook (interestingly for different reasons), so thought it would be good to encourage folks to post their groups on the SpokaneRPG.com and local Meetup.com groups..

I am amazed how many avid role-playing gamers I run into that haven't even heard of The Gamers movies by Dead Gentlemen Productions and Zombie Orpheus Productions members. If you love role-playing games, you should have seen The Gamers movies. Help Zombie Orpheus Entertainment get to the next goal of The Gamers: The Series!

How much does your RPG book collection weigh? I was shocked to find out that my collection of RPG Books weighs ~1,400 pounds! I was wondering what challenges others have run into with their larger collections?

Most of my 5th edition books were stolen last night. 3x player handbooks, 1-2x DMGs, 1x Monster Manual.
Posted by Hawke at Nov 03, 2014 12:47 PM Here is a photo of my current AD&D 2nd Edition Collection (much smaller than my 1st Edition (which was basically everything ever printed)).

We will be starting first with Original D&D; boxed set, and then as 5th edition becomes available, consider either switching, or adding a 5th edition campaign. Here is information for getting started, with gaming schedule: Initially OD&D; Greyhawk Campaign. Hawke will DM first, then alternate with John Waite DMing the next, and back and forth. We meet every 2 weeks, Sundays at 9:00 pm. Though "officially" 9:00 pm to Midnight, if we're all up for it (like the "good ol' days"), we'll play later.
Posted by Hawke at Sep 26, 2014 07:55 PM - Filed under: DnD, 5th Edition, Dungeons & Dragons, Original Dungeons & Dragons, D&D Next, rpg, OD&D, D&D - How many times have you rolled that d20, added the bonuses, and had an awesome total (though not a “Nat 20”), and thought “What a waste of a great roll” because then you just roll your normal damage dice. Wouldn't it be nice if the greater the d20 hit roll, there would be a gradient of increasingly more severe consequences to the target being hit?
Posted by Hawke at Oct 06, 2014 05:41 PM - missed a request for advice from an aspiring new DM at https://www.youtube.com/user/rpgresearch/discussion , so I thought I would replicate that here. As many other sites have done, you could put out a new article daily on advice for running games, but hopefully this is useful to some. Happy Gaming!
