This image is misleading; your fighter won’tget armor for the first five or so levels. Despite a very shaky and dubious launch, I managed to scrounge up a few copies at a GameStop that I didn’t even know existed in my area, just two days after the purported release date. Thankfully […]
I’d apparently overlooked this installment of Character Themes, which gives us chevalier, guardian, hospitaler, and noble. CHEVALIERThese guys get a chivalrous code sidebar, allowing you to add irritating classic paladin-like limitations to any character. … Yay…? Actually the sidebar specifically mentions that the code varies from culture to culture, just that […]
This week on Character Themes we get explorer, guttersnipe, mercenary, and outlaw. EXPLORER You automatically tell which way is north, gain a hefty bonus to any skill check you make to avoid getting lost, and gain an encounter power that lets you ignore difficult terrain as a move action, in addition to […]
There has been some very selective and deliberate misinterpretation about a new Organized Play even that will take place in September, Lair Assault. As I hear it, Lair Assault hearkens back to when D&D games were ran at conventions as a sort of tournament, where players competed to see who could […]
In line of the vampire class from Heroes of Shadow, here is a pdf for a heroic-tier red dragon race-class combo. Lemme know what you think about the powers, layout, progression, etc. If people like it, I’ll wrap up the paragon and epic tiers, too.

Last week Randy ran The Wayward Wyrmling, an adventure that I reviewed in the past and enjoyed. The adventure is basically three encounters with kobolds, including traps, difficult terrain, and a dragon (in that order), culminating with the possibility that you walk away with a pet dragon. Since we were having a […]
This trio of themes focuses on arcane and divine characters, giving us the ordained priest, scholar, and seer. As with the first four, they function similar to Dark Sun themes, except you also get bonus features at levels 5 and 10. Ordained priest is a bit different from the norm, in […]
Note: Blogger has been down for awhile (at least mine was), so this is later than usual going up. Unless you don’t like your character and your DM won’t let you roll up something new, death sucks. In 2nd you lost a point of Constitution, while 3rd Edition taxed you a level, […]
Victor (aka The Planeswalker) has created a four-page article featuring the dromite, racial feats, and elocator paragon path. Criticism is welcome, as this is the first race article he’s posted; let him know what you like or don’t like.
