27/30 Bad Things about Treasure    Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)

So your PCs have won their quest, be it slaying a mighty dragon with a magical weapon of old, beating a crime boss, or vanquishing a mighty wizard or wight, and they have taken possession of the treasure. Chest after chest of gold and silver coins, gold bars, and every kind of jewel and gemstone is theirs for the taking. If they are not careful, they may find that their trouble has only just begun.

Imagi...Imagi...whut?    Articles  (Humor/ Editorial)   (Gaming - In General)

When was the last time you truly used, focused on, for any significant length of time, your imagination; your active, conscious, willful, artistic creativity, to get back in touch with that ability to appreciate the wonder that you yourself can create and bring forth, all from within yourself? Were you ever able to do that? Did you ever do that? Can you still do it? Do you do it when you game, as player or GM? Will you do it? Could this be missing from a lot of the newer, younger RPG'ers of today?

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.

Diseased people, (leprosy or any other such fear inducing disease) when traveling, will often times wear a cloak that entirely covers their body and ring a bell as they travel, used as a warning for any others to stay away. Could be used for a disguise or safe passage. ... you meet strangely cloaked people, sometimes ringing a bell. "Please give us something to eat, mighty heroes!" This is time to show how good they are.
