Doesn’t the stew look awesome? (and we all know it tastes great)

Random Thoughts

I’ve been told a couple of times that we don’t give enough 3.x love around here.

You know what?  It’s true.

I’ll try to do a little 3.x, or at least more system-less stuff.  And, um, well, let’s 3.x some love right now – leave your best D&D3.x pickup lines in the comments! The best pickup line wins 2 sets of dice! I’ll go first:

  • “Do you have the ride skill?” or “Let’s do it slow and take 20!”

Mini love

And while we’re talking about D&D love, I would encourage everyone in need of laughter (or at least chuckles) to read Geek’s Dream Girl’s “Minis Seeking Love” articles.  Great stuff.

Gnome Stew gets a new look!

The gnomes have been hard at work! The ever-useful game master blog Gnome Stew has a brand new look!  Watch out – it is sizzling hot – they kept the clean, easy-to-navigate elements of the old design and made everything better.

Also, the gnome are very close to 2,000 daily RSS readers, so when you go their site make sure you subscribe to the Gnome Stew RSS feed.  I personally choose the email subscription and get articles from them in my inbox almost every day – I’m a big fan.

Campaign Mastery milestone

I was talking to Johnn Four yesterday. Johnn is THE authority in GMing thanks to his weekly Roleplaying Tips newsletter that has been delivered since 1999.  He also runs the Campaign Mastery Blog. I don’t believe Johnn advertises his RSS subscriber numbers but he told me he got to 1,000, which is incredible since the website has only been up for 6 months!

So… What I want to say is that I’m a fan of Campaign Mastery and the site offers to RSS email subscription (right on their homepage).

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.

    Thanks for the gnome love, Yax! We’re loving the new design, and it’s gotten good feedback from our readers.

    I can show you how high eight ranks of Rope Use can go.

  20. Sektor says:

    ‘You’re eyes are so bright, you probably don’t need a sunrod in the dark’
    ‘Not even your mirror images would look as good as you’
    ‘Oh my darling, cast Knock three times on the ceiling if you want me, twice on the rod if the answer is no’

    And the obligatory naughty one:
    ‘When I first saw you, part of me turned flesh to stone’

  21. Yax says:

    Haha! Great lines everyone! I have a few favorites. It’s going to be hard to choose – I might have to send out multiple prizes…

    And, if you want to go for the Japanese version: Spike Growth

    ”I thought your Fascination skill was a passive effect.”
    ”I have a skill that’s just like Berserk rage. It’ll make you scream, and then I’ll be tired.”

  28. Delf says:
