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.

Silence, class, you had your laughs, now let's have a little history.

It looks primitive, doesn't it?

Well, what you surely don't see is what followed after it. This was the first table posted here, and a few others later followed, even less complete than this one. You may be wondering why is that important, but you know that users of this place have a tendency to add to incomplete things, and apply good ideas for other purposes.

I am sure you already know, what I want to say. This here is the grand-grandfather of today's Idea Scrolls! One of the most amazing discoveries of this century has its roots in this simple submission. Just think about it - every one of you has used a more advanced version at some point.

Now we'll have a little break, so look around, and don't break anything yourself. We will continue our tour through the Forums Of Ancient Times later.

:)
Do not correct me, I know I am wrong.

Rolemaster has been totally pwned! ;)

I love charts like these! As a player with a series of different games on his roster, I have rolled my share of Rolemaster and MERP tables.

Brings back good memories.

wow now this is a blast from the past.

An old gaming buddy ran across this and pulled it up for me to look at this last weekend at a game. 

Back in about 96 (after playing some serious rolemaster lol) I made this chart for my D&D game. I posted it and some other stuff on a now extinct Geocities web page I made. 

Anyway it's pretty awesome to see it living on. :)

I hope people have enjoyed it.  My buddy thinks he has hard copies of some of the other charts.  If so I'll post them here at a later date.

Strolen thank you for posting this!

Hiya there Coley!

So great so see this: A piece of ancient Strolen's Citadel history spotted once more by the original author of it over a decade after it was posted! and by Coley's post, this is a chart which was thought up nearly two decades ago, now! Stick around, Coley! Itt'd be great to see you bring up some more stuff!

All hail Coley. I never, in my wildest dreams, thought I would ever be graced in the same conversation as the creator of such astonishing wonderfulness!!

This chart spawned years of devastation and nail biting. We used it equally for us and the baddies because fair is fair. Of course we spent time on our own charts but we ALWAYS seemed to go back to this one. This was a central point to many character deaths as well as countless monsters.

I just want to personally thank you for posting it back in the moving gif ages of the internet. We absolutely love the chart!!

lol Thats awesome all the way around.  I'm glad you guys have enjoyed it.  For old times sake I'm incorporating it into my new Pathfinder game.  Trying to figure out a fair way to handle the difference in the way they do weapon threat ranges and multipliers though.



You've got a great site here.  I've already found a few things I can use in the games I'm running now.
