11 surefire signs that a red dragon runs your life

Written by Expy - Published on August 13, 2008

Random thoughts

Last week I got the confirmation that my theory on harnessing the power of deadlines works. Well, it’s not really my theory. Anyhow… One of the owners of the company I work for told me I was always giving him really short estimates for the projects we’re starting. The other owner of the company told me I was the guy who gets things done.

What does this have to do with DMing?

Well, as a DM you should only allow yourself a ridiculously short amount of time to prepare your upcoming game. You’ll be impressed how productive you can be.

11 surefire signs that a red dragon runs your life

Here’s a little bit of sillyness. Or maybe not. Sometimes I’m worried that my life is run by a red dragon!
Who eats dragonfruit?

  1. The smoke detector keeps going off.
  2. Your website logo is a red dragon.
  3. You do things without really knowing why – you just feel compelled to do them.
  4. The neighboring town has mysteriously burned down.
  5. You think white dragon jokes are funny
  6. You didn’t order it but you now have a subscription to Dragon Magazine.
  7. You come home and see dragonfruit in the kitchen. Who eats dragonfruit?
  8. You think red dragons are hot (well, they are.)
  9. You have seen a red dragon and you lived to tell the tale.
  10. A red dragon is nice to you!
  11. People link to your blog and mention it’s being run by a red dragon (big hint!)

That’s it for today. I just needed to share my thoughts (concerns?) on this issue. I don’t think it affects many readers!

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.

    It affects the readers that care, Yax, so it affects us all.

    A little brimstone never killed anyone before

    At the moment i suspect a pseudo dragon rules my life!

    I actually think brimstone smells very good.
