Some men who want to compliment random women on the street are genuinely good...– Why You Shouldn’t Tell That Random Girl On The Street That She’s Hot » Brute Reason (via albinwonderland) I’m reblogging this because I completely agree with what’s said. Well, I DO approach women on the street sometimes, but if they’re not interested and/or wary,...
An Idea to Make Xorns Scary
I have recently bought myself a miniature for the Xorn, a D&D monster which eats precious metals or minerals. Basically this thing exists so a DM can mess with an adventuring party’s treasure. And I like oddball monsters, I really do. Aside from that, I was recently reading Green Devil Face #4 and one of the articles (‘Wand of the Weird’) had a table for random...
Anonymous asked: you write this sobbing novel about your plight as a white person as if your opinion somehow matters. there is no such thing as racism against white people. stfu and sit down white scum.
crunchingnumbers asked: You don't like my augmentations? WHAT A SHAME.

XP in my Campaign
Just a quick post to share how I handle XP in my ‘Lamentations of the Flame Princess’ campaign. I use the XP for monsters and treasure as given. At first I thought of using the XP for monsters from ‘Castles & Crusades’ but ended up realizing they’re actually pretty close on average, and truth be told LotFP’s is less hassle. However, I have adopted...
Attack of the Tooth Fairies!
The Cast Illavir: (Played by Chloe) A female Level 1 Elf exiled to the Human world because she fell in love with the monstrous and extremely powerful Snake-Woman she was supposed to watch over to ensure her captivity. She is looking for a way to go back to her moon to see her beloved again. Bruce Dragon’s Bane: (Played by Cindy) A Level 1 Fighter and adventurer who follows Illavir around...
Elves from the Moon and Homophobe Fathers
Previous Monday, I started a new D&D campaign with some friends. I decided to use the rules from ‘Lamentations of the Flame Princess: Weird Role-Playing’ because I wanted something rules-light and I wanted the magic system to be a bit darker than the norm for D&D. Here’s what one needs to know about the setting so far; It is a human-centric world and most humans have...
Rudolph Van Richten stats for 'Lamentations of the...
I previously posted stats for Rudolph Van Richten for Castles & Crusades based on the ones given in 2e and 3e of D&D. You can see that post HERE. Now, Van Richten is in the Second Edition much weaker in power than in Third Edition. There’s two reasons behind this. The first is that in 2e, many undead monsters had the Level Drain ability and it could not be undone. (Or so...
D&D House Rule: Cloaks & Backpacks
“A cloak slows you down in a fight.” - Bronn (‘Game of Thrones’ TV series) While playing a swashbuckling, lightly-armored character in one campaign, I was often annoyed at the idea of imagining my dexterous character burdened with a backpack. I imagined that if someone was expecting a fight, they’d make sure to remove their backpack before entering a dungeon,...
O.k, here’s the thing. It’s a trend with so-called social activists on the internet these days to start acting like everyone who’s white is automatically racist and/or ignorant/stupid when it comes to other races. Or that it’s okay to describe white intolerant people as just ‘white people’. It’s your right to believe that. But as much as I might like...
The Dungeon Broker
So here’s an idea for an NPC that players can meet in a city environment (often a tavern)… The Dungeon Broker. This character will only fit in a campaign where there are plenty of dungeons to explore from many past civilizations and old powers. In other words, a world where dungeon running is as much a trope for the inhabitants of the world as it is for the players...
Read this first if you’re wondering what ‘cross-playing’ is.Or I can simply tell you that it’s portraying a character in any sort of game who happens to be of the opposite sex of the player’s. Anyway, my new roommate and I have discussed the possibility of starting a D&D game sometime soon, a one-DM/one-PC campaign. When I asked her what kind of character...
I’ve been playing RPGs for about 10 years now, both as a player and a GM. And I have yet to grow older in the hobby. In-character that is! You see, I’m somewhat jealous of players who, through a mixture of having played them long enough and of keeping track of the in-story time that passed, have characters who have grown significantly older than the age they had when they were...
Eye Ray of the Beholder
I’ve started a D&D-centric blog: http://eyerayofthebeholder.blogspot.ca/ Whatever content I post over there will also be posted in this blog sooner or later, but I’ve noticed that most tabletop RPG players seem to be on Blogger so I decided to start one there for that specific interest. For everything else, I’ll keep using this blog foremost.

Anonymous asked: I'd prefer a Wonder Woman who can actually act. It's actually pretty annoying that women get held to different standards in terms of physical ability to "kick ass" then men do.

kindofdistracting asked: when i think of dragon riders, the human's weapin is more like a glaive and jumps off the dragon to use the height for additional force, while the dragon attacks independantly or catches the enemy's attantion, catching the rider again if necessary. i hope this makes sense.
