Tales by TerishD : Curse of a Home: VII|

The scream of a mounted soldier suddenly having his horse collapse actually brought some relief to all. It was a call to action. The sight of carnage without being able to identify the predator was unnerving, and speaking to a lovely lady who claimed to be cursed was unsatisfying. The men had come out here looking for trouble, and were not bothered that trouble had finally gotten bored and decided to come to them.
Our two heroes finally confront the source of the curse.

Behind the screen: Campaign Building 101 Pt.1+2|
Posted by Atlan on Sunday, June 20, 2004 (14:02:11) (757 reads) 7 comments |
Just now the second part of Campaign Building 101 has been posted on WotC's website.
This series of articles demonstrates the progress of building a campaign in form of a little campaign that gets built by the DM "Eddie".
The first part covers the most important question, but at the same time most general: How to get started? Where to draw inspirations?
The second part, which is now avaiable, focuses on the actual starting of the work: How to set the theme, to select the antagonists and then adapting them for your setting if needed.
So if you are interested in this or want to compare this example creation to your own way of doing things go here:

RPG tool TavernMaker (TEAMware) looks for users|
Posted by Anonymous on Saturday, June 19, 2004 (15:15:09) (1580 reads) 7 comments |
The Project TavernMaker is a free random generator for taverns in pen&paper RPGs. Both graphic and text output will be generated. The program is TEAMware which means it is free, but users have to register by contribution to the project.
Note: Sadly the originator of this news chose to remain anonymous, but maybe he will return at some time and join us as a forum member.
The screenshots already avaiable at the website look promising and imho you should at least take a look.

The crew of the Ibis did not know the reason for their situation, but many prayed understanding the peril that was upon them. They had every reason however to expect their prayers to be heard. Living on a world where only great works caused the gods to learn one's name, the crew had every right to expect that their names were presently being indelible written on some divine text. They achieved next to the impossible.
Our heroes start to directly face the problems at hand.

Tales by TerishD : Curse of a Home: V|

A soldier saw a movement of tan colored fur, and released his hold on the bowstring. A roar sounded as a female lion felt the cut of the edge of an arrowhead. The animals did not charge, feeling no need to attack a potentially fatal foe. They only moved back to what they felt was a safe distance from which they could wait for a more opportune moment to close.
Jackal rode back enough where those left at the caravan could hear him. The officer bellowed that they had indeed noticed the great cats, but felt certain that they were only coming to the smell of the carcasses and not to finish what had been started. Neither the baron or the major liked admitting that the lions would probably dig up the corpses, but the soldiers would do what they could and allow nature to do as it would once they had left.
Things start to become bad, very bad.
