The Barbarian Game Concept

February 7, 2013 by

8

When I first started playing D&D, I could not find a game that was in any way compelling. NPCs were flat, boring, and served only as punching bags for the characters, who in turn were little more than bags of ego with a class attached. Stories were rarely developed, and quickly abandoned. The only solution […]

Character Building 101: Character Background and Where to Share

January 3, 2013 by

So you’ve finally built that perfect little character. You’ve added the numbers, you’ve found a name, and a style, and a rich personality with a quaint cockney accent, and finally you’re starting to feel like you’re finished.

The gods have always featured heavily in my games; Pelor, Avandra, Bane, Moradin, and the Raven Queen have all had primary roles in the story line of the games I run. Not even just as distant ideals either: many of the gods have shown up in person to interact with the characters. Hell, the party […]

The Alignment System

So alignments are pretty silly. They have pretty much no impact on my games whatsoever. They’re an antiquated, limiting system. But I still love applying them to things; I love Alignments charts of Batman, Scrubs, Battlestar, whatever! In fact, I love them so much, I went ahead and made my own chart. As a man […]
