Remaking the Undead    Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Any)

Undead are, simply put, among the most horrific things one can think of. Can you imagine anything more frightening than a being which is dead and yet still walks? Can you imagine the horror of being faced by the hollow shell of being, a hollow shell which must feed?

Heroic but non-magical items    Systems  (Mystical)   (General)

How may times have you read a book in which a famous hero’s sword is treasured and valued, not because it is magic, or because of its powers, but just because the hero wielded it. The “Sword of Enthar” the great warrior may just be a normal steel broadsword; but because he used it, it will be prized and treasured.

Campaigns are like Plants    Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Game Mastering)

Literally, Campaigns are like plants.  They can only grow if the conditions are right.  The GM must plant them in the correct place and right environmental conditions (i.e. the players must like the ideas behind the games and be willing to play in them). Just like the gardener must prepare the soil and growing environment, the GM must create the basics of the campaign before play.

PC Death and the Threshold of Acceptance    Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)

One of the most heated topics in gaming is the arguments about player character death. Should the GM and the Players be antagonistic with each other? Should the results lay like the dice? What about story continuity and the investment in time and effort into the characters. Everyone seems to have strong opinions about this.

Karmic Overdraft

       By: rickster

As population increases, animal souls are promoted to human before they are spiritually advanced enough in terms of impulse control, etc.: this shouldn't have happened, but karmic progression is automatic, after all--it's a force of nature. But the 'animalization' of humankind bodes ill for civilization.

No doubt the same goes for elves, dwarves, and so on.
