Maidae 7.0 take 2

Micki's Delirium

Hamster pointed out that some things in Maidae 7.0 didn’t make sense, so I looked at his suggestions and made some changes. For example, in this build below she’s now dex-focused. The enhancements are just a first draft and may change.

From the DM’s Chair, Storm King’s Thunder Part 2: The Dripping Caves.


Your adventurers have finally claimed Nightstone and expelled the multitude (and I do mean multitude) of threats attempting to claim the small town as their own. However, most of the local inhabitants are still missing. One of the guards should readily be able to inform the player that they would have raced to the Dripping Caves for safety but, in true gaming fashion, are too busy holding down the wrecked fort to effectively investigate, leaving it to the party to investigate the Dripping Caves and discover what became of the people of Nightstone.

Welcome to From the DM’s Chair and today, we’ll be talking about the adventure module Storm King’s Thunder, both my experiences and the lessons learned whilst running it. This week, we’re going to be taking a look at the Dripping Caves segment from ‘A Great Upheaval’. My party of Nightstone liberators are as follows:

Luke is Imaraente ‘Immy’…

Patience with content you do not like


How much patience with content you don’t like in an MMORPG? I’ve a bit of a history of ignoring quests that I dislike. There’s a quest in Dungeons & Dragons Online that I only ever completed once because it was rather unheroic and went against the (RP self-imposed) religious beliefs of my Paladin main character. Likewise I’m more than happy to never do another ‘poop’ quest in any MMO ever again.

But what if the content here isn’t just the odd quest? Some zones are pretty dreary to play through, Lord of the Rings Online has issues with some zones that some players actively avoid. I’ve more a of a problem with Mordor personally but I can sympathise with the view that a zone can lessen your enjoyment of a particular game at least in the short-term. Having options to skip such content are great, but if your progress…

What they looked like on TR – Firetha

Micki's Delirium

Firetha started on Cannith server (May 29, 2012) and had the name Keronna. Keronna moved to Orien server October 9, 2014 and her name was changed to Firetha. Keronna did one TR before switching servers and have done 3 since then. Firetha’s 2 ERs were done in combination with TRs.

TR 1 (Sep 3, 2013): Keronna as a half-elf, 18 cleric/ 2 monk/ 5 epic.

Bring in the new character!

Dyson's Dodecahedron

So, I was prepping for Sunday’s “The Enemy Within” (Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 1e) session… And I’m finding myself weirdly familiar with the material I’m reading – even though I’ve never owned or read Death on the Reik before now.

And then it hits me. This is the game I was “playing” in that taught me a vital skill in my DM kit – how to engage new players and new characters into a game.

A close friend who was in two of my gaming groups invited me to join his Warhammer group. When I showed interest in playing a dwarf he was excited and explained that the group were about to get to a point where it would be PERFECT to introduce a dwarf to the group.

So I roll up my character, and then show up for the session. We’re high schoolers, so the sessions are 8-12 hours long…

50 D&D Quest Ideas

Boccob's Blessed Blog

RDJE “Red Dragon” by Jeff Easley

  1. Tiny dolls made of wheat sheaves are attacking the village at night, made by the children of the town being taught how to construct them by a night hag who disguises herself as a fairy godmother.
  2. Three old ladies wander into town, and set up shop as adventurers, and knitting sweaters for their clients. Every quest the party goes on, they’ve somehow managed to skip to the end and defeat the big boss. Now they’re looking for a fight.
  3. Two rival houses enlist the aid of the party in poisoning the leader of the other.
  4. A rat catcher stumbles into the street and collapse. His body is covered in vicious bites. The terrified man can only speak a single, “Grokk”.
  5. The PC’s fall asleep and are astral projected to an ancient alien temple/ruin/structure filled with bizarre traps, treasure, and creatures. If the survive they must…

Containment’s Journal-Lair of Summoning

Erdrique's Blog

Quest: The Lair of Summoning

Level 5 (normal), 6 (hard), 7 (elite)

Crawlers: Containment, Breyy (dual boxing)

Well that was a rough night on Slayer II.  I already don’t like flying and that squall that came through last night just showed that I was more than ready to get my feet back on the ground.  I was thankful when we docked at House Kundarak.  As I was disembarking, Erdrique motioned me to the side and asked me to check in with Lorridan Silvermantle in the Ever Full Flagon Inn.  Evidently Lorridan needs some help and he had contacted the guild to set up a contract.

I caught up with Breyy and had asked him to come along as well.  It didn’t take very long to make it from the airship docks to the Ever Full Flagon.  Once inside, we made our way to the inn owner and asked if he…

20 D&D Bard Quest Ideas

Today we have a guest blogger, Mia Johnson from Tipsy Badger. She has prepared 20 D&D Quest Ideas for bards.

  1. The children of the surround farmland have been disappearing, some say a satyr play his flute just on the edge of the woods, enticing them to join his dance.
  2. Despite the disappearing members and strange accidents happening around the traveling circus, the troupe seeks new headliners for this evening’s show.
  3. A haunting melody rouses the party from their sleep to see a ghostly veiled woman drifting towards a pond, beckoning the party with her hand before sinking below the water.
  4. Drunken revelry draws the party’s attention to  a crowd of townsfolk gathered round a fighting pit, the betting pot valuing a small fortune.
  5. The whole town decorated in fresh flowers and summer banners, many walls and posts…

Kitbashing the Warlord


Among new class options, the Warlord is highly coveted. Especially so among 4th Edition (4e) veterans. In fact, the Warlord is probably the most popular class concept that hasn’t been graced with a playtest treatment via Unearthed Arcana.

We caught our first whiff of Warlord design development from D&D Creative Director Mike Mearls on the Happy Fun Hour. The Warlord subclass build received robust development over a month of development (2018.3.62018.3.13, 2018.3.202018.3.27). This design was a subclass for the Fighter class. It is encouraging to see design on this front, even if some feel that the Warlord should instead be designed as a standalone class. However, we can’t gauge what rate these streamed designs are pushed through the system. While some more recent Happy Fun Hour designs have appeared in official printed materials (the Order Domain Cleric and Circle of Spores Druid

What they looked like on TR – Cerge

Micki's Delirium

Cerge has done 8 TRs and 12 ERs in the soon 7 years since he was born (Feb 24, 2012). Here are his “what he looked like on TR” pictures.

TR 1 (Apr 15, 2013): I didn’t do separate before and after pictures for Cerge’s first TR, but the picture to the left is his first picture. Cerge as a warforged, 20 sorcerer/ 5 epic.
