Expy takes over – everything will be all right!

Written by Expy - Published on March 9, 2009

Expy, inc.

It’s been in the works for a long time and it’s finally here. Expy – Dungeon Mastering’s resident red dragon – is taking over. He finally found the legal loopholes he was looking for and officially took control of the company.

The new company is simply called “Expy” and will manage DungeonMastering.com, Dungeon Mastering Tools, Epic Vacations, and hopefully many more projects in the future.

Expy agreed to keep me as an employee and be his human puppet manager.

New server

Expy’s first move was to get the website off its awful shared hosting server. We now have and brand new dedicated server. The new server has been given a fresh coat of red paint to make it faster and look more badass.

We apologize to everyone who has had issues with the website over the last week and thank you for reporting the bugs and downtime you experienced.

Spring preview

Janna and Nicholas will keep gracing us witht their useful and entertaining articles. We are also welcoming an editor to the team. Welcome back Craig.

We will also have a few special guest appearances by one of my favorite webcomics – details to come in 3 weeks.

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.

    I know many of us have not and will not convert to 4.0. Do you plan to talk at all about the 3.3 system?

  2. Yax says:

    I think we will be mostly writing about 4th edition when it comes to mechanics.

  3. Direbear says:

    Then I’m sorry to say that I have no desire to continue receiving your emails.

  4. Yax says:

    Stop by the site every now and then to peruse the generic, non-mechanical stuff. Take care.

    we can go back to Heraclitus in the 6th century BC to find a perpetual truth, “Everything changes except for change itself.”

    I understand how some people do not like change, but change is inevitable. Role Playing Games have gone through many changes since D&D first opened this Pandora’s Box. So many gaming systems have fallen aside due to changing times and markets. This is the nature of the beast.

    I look forward to seeing how Expy and you address the latest incarnation of Dungeons and Dragons. I have been playing D&D since it was first known as AD&D in 1978. I have taken the time to learn each new incarnation and I look forward to learning D&D 4.0.

    Words of wisdom

    Personally I welcome my new dragon overlord. May his reign be long and fruitful.

    Also, I do accept payment in the form of piles of gold from your horde.

    Also, I taste terrible.

  8. Expy says:

    Nice try…

  9. Nicholas says:

    Well, you can’t blame (or eat) a guy for trying.

    I can’t speak for everyone but I can say that for me, and the players I know, it’s not “change” that is the problem here. It’s the fact that WotC’s release of v4.0 seems less like a natural evolution of an existing game system and much, much more like a forced and un-necessary change to an already well-designed game system. I was never really that into AD&D (it wasn’t horrible, just mediocre). But, v3.0/3.5 was very well done and many players, myself included, invested lost of money in this system. And now, 6 short years after the release of v3.5, WotC dumps this crappy new edition on us? Hmmmm…I don’t think so. Those of us who see v4.0 for the unbelievable suck-fest that it is have no desire to drop another huge wad of cash just to update our gaming libraries with an inferior, poorly-designed version of our favorite RPG.
