New to the Citadel
« on: May 08, 2006, 11:24:38 PM »
Hello,

I just discovered this site by accident while googling for "healing potion prices" (linked me to a submission here for a variant healing potion).  Site looks very nice and well organized.  I think I'll spend my evening here!

I have been playing D&D since 1981, mostly as a DM.  I ran a very extensive campaign world with my family all during the 80's and early 90's, but then real life took hold and I had to focus on career, etc.  Now, in the last couple of years, I've gotten back into DM'ing and I'm still creating my new homebrew world and learning 3.5 D&D.

I like to spend time perusing other rpg sites, such as this, to get ideas.  If anyone would like to read my blog page, which showcases the journal entries of my current campaign I am dm'ing for, check it out:

See ya around!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

I like taking naps, that makes you my friend already.
They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Welcome to the site Nap, and do stay for a while. :D

Thanks for the welcome!  As for the blog journal, they are written by the players and some of them do tend to be a bit wordy for casual reading.  However, I will try to find a way to post a condensed synopsis of the events that transpired, with a link to the full journal entries for anyone interested in reading more.
