Finally: The Hobbit Appears

I am totally stoked!!  The 1st trailer for the Hobbit made its appearance recently and I just saw it.  I don't care what any of you think, but I love Peter Jackson's work with LOTR and all his other movies.  Take a look at the trailer.

If you have trouble viewing this video, access it here.

Creature Creations: The Chaos Golem

Read the article of the fearsome creatures known as the Chaos Golems here at the great website 

This creature fits into any campaign of Epic level and can challenge even the best of players.  Intelligent and powerful, it is not a foe to be taken lightly.

Enjoy the read and any feedback from playtesting would be appreciated.

New Ritual: Merlin's Magic Item Enchantment

With the introduction of rituals in the 4th Edition of Dungeons & Dragons, it has (in my opinion) taken away a lot of the fun from spellcasters, especially when it come to creating, or improving magic items.  Characters are forced to take run of the mill items; where every other character has one or can acquire one at their whims.  

The players do have the options though of transferring previously acquired item properties and powers into a similar magic item of a higher level.  For example the party finds a +3 magic platemail suit of armour.  The player to get this item could, with the use of this ritual, transfer the existing properties and powers of thier current +2 suit of leather armour into the +2 suit of plate armour, provided that the armour they are transfering the properties to is not of higher level.

Hopefully Back on a Regular Basis!!

I have been absent for awhile. For the last couple of months I have been under an incredible amount of stress. This is not an excuse: it is a fact. So I am back and will hopefully be posting between here and there. It has been a busy summer, travelling out of country for over a month.  Other contributing factors have influenced my absence to the wonderful world of blogging. 

I am committed to bringing and trying to give new ideas, new perspectives to gaming in particular. Little by little I will try to return to the board and commit to quality articles.

Thanks for reading and welcome back!
