D&D Monday morning speedlinking

DNDMMSL 06-30-08

It’s Monday morning and people at work keep asking you “Are you OK?” and you can’t even muster the energy to answer (until that first mug of coffee kicks in)?  Oh believe me I know how you feel.  But don’t worry I have a solution for you:

  1. Sit down in front of your computer
  2. Click on these links

It might even look like you’re working!

4eReviews.com

4e Reviews is a resource for independent reviews, interviews, and opinion pertaining to 4th Edition D&D, Pathfinder, 3.5 OGL, and d20 RPGs.

  • They have an interesting article on combat in 4e, spurred by the release of Keep on the Shadowfell.
  • You’ll also find an interview with Wolfgang Baur.  He shares his thoughts on Open Design, 4e vs. d20 for independant publishers, and more.

Dragon Avenue

Dragon Ave. is one of the high-quality blogs in the RPG world.  They keep coming with useful and entertaining content.

Wizards of the Coast

There’s one thing I didn’t see on the Dragon Avenue resources page:

Scott’s Corner

Scott babbles about games, books, and whatever he’s into at the moment.  Well, he was into writing a great article this week! Scott used to run Llama Fodder.  He imported all the articles from his old site to this new corner of his.

Chatty DM

Phil – the notorious Chatty DM – also rounded up useful D&D 4th edition links.  He has more than you can shake a +1 stick at.  (But he’s still going down)

More links

  • Are you into world building? Check this out: medieval demographics made easy.
  • If Eberron is a setting you enjoy, you might to look at playing a warforged in 4e from Dragon Magazine.
  • Still from Dragon Mag: I enjoyed the bits on goblins and kobolds.  Every DM can use more of these classic monsters.  Even at high level if there is a way to throw a few of them in a game it’s always good.

That’s it for this week!

Let me know what you think on the 4e tools, the goblins, the kobolds.

Have fun at work.

Meet Expy The Red Dragon

Expy is the mascot for DungeonMastering.com and the real mastermind behind Expy Games. He likes to hoard treasure, terrorize neighbors, burn down villages, and tell white dragon jokes..

No matter how fearful the legends claim dragons are, they always end up being defeated in 5 rounds by adventuring parties they encounter. That’s what dragons are – experience points for the heroes in your Dungeons & Dragon party. And this mascot is no different, hence the name Expy.

    Like the goblins and kobolds, anything which gives players a surprise, something they don’t expect and perhaps lulls them ionto false security, has to be good. Ctach the little blighters on the hop! there seem in the later editions to be much more scope for “tweaking” lowlevel monsters, obviously a good thing. I have often played with the ideas, thanks for the heads-up. As for the Mediaeval Demographics, fascinating stuff. S John Ross is a talented bloke! Haven’t tried 4e and don’t really want to, but thanks anyway!
