Virtual Table Overview

After uninstalling and reinstalling Java 6, I finally managed to get Virtual Table to load. I’ve never used other online mapping tools before (or really played online), so while I can’t make a comparison I can go over what I like/don’t like about it. Before I go on please understand that […]

Web-Based Character Builder

Note: There’s apparently some confusion about my stance on the whole web-based direction that Wizards of the Coast is taking Character Builder. First, I don’t mind if it requires internet access. That’s a perfectly acceptable response to some fans’ stance of picking up a month of DDI a year, or every […]

DDI: May Issues

You can find next month’s table of contents here. There’s a bunch of free Monster Manual 2 excerpts up until the 18th, when they shift gears and start pitching us Eberron Campaign Guide goodies.

Dragon: Art of the Kill

As suspected, Art of the Kill is a very good article on assassins as-they-exist-in-D&D and everything assassin-related. Warning: This is a big article. Starting with the story-material, we get a brief overview on assassins and their past presentations, a sidebar on secret languages (thieves’ cant, druidic, and drow sign), backgrounds […]
