Welcome to RollD4e!
A RPG Blog focused on the ins and outs of fantasy role playing (specifically a lot of the time I’ll be more focused on Dungeons & Dragons especially 4th Edition which is what me and my group are currently playing, though I will be posting mainly system neutral at first.) Giving DM Advice, PC Advice and just some interesting articles on playing these games we love so much.
This blog started as merely a glimmer an idea that has now come round into a big shiny ball of light that will hopefully be a long lasting project, as a bit of an amateur writer I hope to extend my writing skills to be more creative and informative delivering interesting articles to a whole new audience I have been part of for just over three years now.
Though three years is not alot of experience compared to some of the other bloggers out there such as the ChattyDM (Musings of the Chatty DM) and Yax (Dungeon Mastering), but in that time I have managed to survive insanely troublesome players, introducing new comers to our wonderful hobby and have written enough material that I have yet to use that my desk tends to be a mass of dice, books and folders filled with lined paper, some of this may even (well at least the fluff anyway) make it’s way here onto the Internet.
I have currently run two campaigns to a finish and at the end of this weekend my third outing begins, up until now my group have been playing mini 4th edition campaigns “Super Adventures” at the most at various levels until then, and finally this weekend where moving onto a full blown game. Which I will be discussing at some point in the near future. As well as DMing two full blown campaigns I have also played in three or four within the group and so have experienced a number of 1-20 run throughs with 3.5 edition, anything that I learnt in that game has actually transfered to 4e quite well when it comes to just being prepared strategising with others at the table and taking down evil stuff.
Away from the table I’m just trying to get through life and leave my black hole of a school so that I can get out into the world and prove my worth as a game designer (that is what my ambition is) in the mean time I fill my time with developing my writing skills, playing video games and just trying to enjoy the insignificant life I leave.
I hope to post at first at least twice a week slowly developing further as I go along.
Thanks For Reading,
I’d Like to thank the ChattyDM (Musings of the Chatty DM) and Yax (Dungeon Mastering), even though I havn’t actually talked to them their blogs are what sparked this idea, and I’d like to take this moment to say how awesome I think they are.
