DnD: The Dark Mage

As three members of our Laundry RPG campaign were unable to attend today’s session, the two remaining players decided on a one-shot Dungeons and Dragons session. The Holy City of Honour was a city where dozens of peoples from dozens of faiths come to visit. It grew to be its own city state. A thick wall protected it from the […]

Humans, elves, dwarves and dragonborn came to build a city upon the plateau. Even a number of drow eventually settled there. Over the centuries, it grew into a […]

Encounters in a Remote Kampung

As you travel deep into the South East Asian tropical jungle to where remote kampungs stand, you realise that this is no walk in the woods. The tropical jungle is thick. Thicker than you thought possible. Huge trees larger than life, themselves teeming with additional lives, block your path. Between them were the tropical undergrowth. Dozens of types with dozens […]

DnD: An Assessment of an Island Economy

Dungeons and Dragons in Class I ran Dungeons and Dragons for the first time… in a classroom. On Wednesday, I found that there was time to run a role-playing game session for the class while giving them a focused objective language wise. So I bought my D&D books. This class had never played any RPGs before, so I hoped that […]

DnD: Abduction at the Ancient Ruins

Finally after almost 30 years of gamemastering roleplaying games, I finally got to run Dungeons and Dragons. Setting background: 130 years in the past, a fleet of jongs, perahus and lancang led by a Laksamana of the Sultanate of Melaka left their port for the Kingdom of China. As they approached the island of Temasik, a mist of green and […]

Some Dungeons and Some Dragons

I spent most of Saturdays this past two semesters teaching extra English classes. This semester after I was paid, I ordered the Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook and Monster Manual from Book Depository.

The Saurials of the Lost Vale

There is a Lambda-class shuttle named Tarrasque in my Star Wars campaign, for reals

Midget Tarrasque

Tarrasques are the most lethal creatures without a destructive breath weapon in the Dungeons and Dragons mythology. You don’t need a lot, just one will do in any RPG campaign if you need a continent or two levelled. This is either a very young tarrasque from the planet Falx (if we’re playing in a Spelljammer campaign) or a midget tarrasque. […]

So what IS a Role-playing Game Anyway?

I have a Role-playing Games category right over there at the left sidebar on the front page of the site. I’m sure there’s a lot of visitors to this site that will probably shrug and say, “I dunno”, or half-heartedly answer, “Something like Dungeons and Dragons?” Well, Dungeons and Dragons is a role-playing game (RPG is the popular acronym attributed […]
