Words to Live (and Play) By

I was looking through an old copy of the 1st Edition AD&D Dungeon Master's Guide and came upon this Epilogue written by Gary Gygax: ++ It is the spirit of the game, not the letter of the rules, which is important. Never hold to the letter written, or allow some barracks room lawyer to force quotatio...

*DING!* Todd Lyons wins today's award for obscure references.

P.S.Teaman, lately you've definitely got the most happening thread on the Artwork forum. What's your secret?

Once again, I'm too computer illiterate to respond with a cool animated GIF. So please imagine a man in raybans delivering a truck full of bananas to a monkey, and then giving that monkey a big thumb's up.

Re: The Blackapple Brugh

Solo/Chi,
I just realized that areas c24-c26 are in the wrong order in the text. The rooms are correctly labeled, just the order is wrong. Not sure how I missed that. :oops:
I can fix it in the current r13 on Dropbox unless one of you happen to be doing something else with that version.

Re: Leomond's Tiny Hut

Oh man.
L2 The Assassin's Knot was one of my favorite modules. It was different, maybe even advanced for its time.. more whodunit than Dungeon crawl with great NPCs and great opportunities for roleplaying.
Sad to see him go, but he made his mark.

Re: Hexcrawl procedures?

My presented procedures were devised to facilitate zero game prep for my purposes. And then if time permitted, I could also pre-plan out areas of map, dungeons, plots, encounters etc. The idea was to NOT REQUIRE any prep, but certainly allow for as much pre-planning as desired. Any randomly generat...

Re: Hexcrawl procedures?

I'm glad you posted this, because I've heard the term hexcrawl 1000 times without having any real definition (I think the term came into use during my 30 year sabbatical from RPGs). My point of reference is the Isle of Dread (or Monkey Isle if you like), where the players are given a map with a huge...

Re: Teaman's Pictures for Basic Fantasy

Anyhoo as you all know that in our own world's history in Europe, belt pouches, purses and bags were the norm until the Modern Age (16-hundreds) when pockets were invented for men's clothes. Women didn't get pockets in their clothes until the 19th Cent. (They previously had discreet slashes in thei...
