    Hooks

    I'm in Two Orcs camp. Also, I can also see hooks as creative ideas just for the DM to flesh out. In Kellerin's Rumble, one hook is you win/inherit a warehouse, blah blah....I think it might be boring for that to be read to a player. But I think a good DM can use that in previous adventures and...

    Old School vs. New School

    I have no idea what Nordic LARP is.....but all I can think about is axes and beer and I think all of us should do it together.

    Old School vs. New School

    I think I'm similar with Squeen's approach. Back in the day, I would create a region, add some pre-bought modules and scatter them across the region, add some of my own stuff, add some rumors/hooks to all of these places, and the players decided what they wanted to do. As DM, I remained neutral...

    I'm back

    It's a bit slow of late. Squeen puts up his kickass drawings but then says he is too busy to do commissions (when you retiring bro?) and once in awhile there is a murmur....BUT...you still have about 4 days for the Deity Contenst over at the Themercilessmerchants.blog

    The state of Post-OSR content

    I've ALWAYS had a constant battle trying to log in to the Knights and Knaves website. Long ago I had registered, got in a few times, then could never log in again. I don't think I pissed anyone off but who knows? Not sure what the deal is. Anyways, this is exciting news. Although my partner...

    That's an interesting idea. Ive wondered if others would find value/interest in it. I thought about writing something like that for Vermilion because I threw all these cool quests and tasks and the party decided to go save a sheep instead...lol.

    Heh, I love reading these quotes. I remember when first trying to publish something--The Willlowmere Vagabonds and The Nevermore Mines, there was this fear? or hesitation of basically summarizing the whole adventure in a paragraph or 2 at the very start of the module. It seems like that would...

    General Discussion

    So The1True, Beoric and Squeen basically all said in a roundabout way that these adventures may not be used but was a good read. Are they a different bracket of 'adventure'? Why has everyone gushed about these adventures and yet no one plays them? Is there a play-by-play for any of these...

    I have a weakness for making wilderness maps. I use to many symbols....less is more, but my brain can't do it well, so I tend to make smaller areas, but then the scale may not make as much sense? Although...It may also not be me as Jon and I work together a lot and if its one we work on...

    Thanks Beoric! I just stumbled upon a video about 'how long should an adventure be?' The dude, Matthew Colville? was saying that adventures should be short, and not the big ones....and that he was surprised that most people on his twitch were just used to adventures being the big, hard bound...

    So Much Bad Design...

    Rumor/gossip table in my opinion is one of the most important things in a city or town to make it come alive.

    So Much Bad Design...

    I started to do that...read over all the old modules I had. I started to read A1 Slave Pits of the Undercity. I remembered it as a young player with fondness....but I read it and thought it was crap. There was stuff that just didn't make sense or missed opportunities for better design. My...

    My "Megadungeon"

    Bah...I think he said he was working on Lake of Fire or something awhile back... But the adventure I meant, which you probably have already is: The Lost Treasure of Atlantis - North Wind Adventures | DriveThruRPG

    My "Megadungeon"

    ya...I think for me it's: 10% ripped off material--I stopped buying materials for the most part so I don't steal off people--which I wonder if that hurts me as I dont get inspiration from others either. Chainsaw wrote a dungeon, Lake of Fire I think, and I bought that and was floored because I...
