I’ve been scouring the interwebs for you, dear readers. 5th Edition is a fantastic system, and you know you want to play your old Dragons of Despair or Temple of Elemental Evil modules with the new system, but how? All of the monsters aren’t available yet, and who knows if they’ll all be in the […]

Hey everyone! With only a few days left, the documentary, “The Great Kingdom” presses forward in hopes of reaching their goal. I had the chance to interview a couple of the filmmakers, Andrew Pascal and Chris Haifleyon, about the project to find out more about it. There’s a few things we covered here, including some […]
Buy Allopurinol Over The Counter, I took my kids to go see Frozen over the weekend. It was actually a really good movie, which managed to avoid the "damsel in distress" plot, Allopurinol usa, and completely threw the idea of "true love" on its head. 20mg Allopurinol, We all really enjoyed it.
As I was watching it, however, Allopurinol canada, I naturally began thinking, Allopurinol us, "This would make a great D&D campaign". If you haven't seen the movie yet, there are a few spoilers up ahead, 30mg Allopurinol.
[caption id="attachment_7654" align="aligncenter" width="300"] A good princess always packs a few torches in her adventuring bag.[/caption]
You have the princess, heir-apparent to the throne, born with powers she can't control (a white dragon-bloodline sorcerer perhaps?), buy Allopurinol Over The Counter. On the day of her coronation, Allopurinol japan, her powers are set loose, and she flees into the mountains, where she builds an enormous ice palace, 1000mg Allopurinol. Her sister pursues her, Allopurinol overseas, adds members to her party including a ranger and his animal companion as well as a snow golem. Combat against a pack of wolves, some skill challenges as they struggle through the mountains, 500mg Allopurinol, and they finally reach their sister's palace. 150mg Allopurinol, After trying to reason with her, they are forced to battle an enormous ice elemental. Buy Allopurinol Over The Counter, The Ice Queen is captured, returned to the city, where her sister is forced to face her again after being magically healed by a band of trolls. In the end, Allopurinol australia, the younger sister sacrifices her life for the queen, 200mg Allopurinol, and is resurrected. They all live happily ever after.
Right there, 750mg Allopurinol, it's a great plot for an adventure. 10mg Allopurinol, Let's take a few things and analyze them.
1, buy Allopurinol Over The Counter. A sympathetic antagonist. The Ice Queen isn't a villain, but she is the antagonist, Allopurinol coupon. It's she who has locked the kingdom of Arendale in eternal winter. 250mg Allopurinol, By giving the antagonist something they cannot control, it's something even they cannot fight. In addition, 40mg Allopurinol, tying the antagonist to the heroes makes it harder for the heroes to simply kill the antagonist to fix everything. Buy Allopurinol Over The Counter, Instead, they'll look for a better solution. Allopurinol paypal,
2. A great adventuring party. Everyone's skills were put to use here. The ice merchant (really, Allopurinol craiglist, he's a ranger) is in it only for the money, Allopurinol ebay, and comes prepared with a pickaxe and 100 feet of rope (always useful for any adventurer). His skills come in hand in the more physically dangerous places, while the princess, 50mg Allopurinol, Anna, 100mg Allopurinol, is useful in charismatic situations, persuading, haggling, Allopurinol mexico, things like that.
3, buy Allopurinol Over The Counter. Allopurinol uk, A stunning twist! I really want to avoid spoilers here for those of you who haven't seen the film, but damn, that twist was pretty good, Allopurinol india. You know the one, where it's revealed that... you know what. If you've seen it, you know. Buy Allopurinol Over The Counter, The point is, there should always be a great plot twist ready to keep your players on their toes. By taking your players' expectations and flipping them, you should keep them interested for sessions to come.
4. Interesting locales. Sweeping mountain vistas, a city locked in ice, a magical winter storm sweeping across the landscape, ships frozen in ice. All of these make great set pieces for your campaign. Keep the locations interesting and different, even if you've got a single unifying element (in this case, ice and snow).
The film was really fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone. While I enjoyed Tangled, Frozen is a far superior film, with some really great visuals, great voice work, and a few good musical numbers too.

By Cirsova: Buy Avodart No Prescription, There are few modules out there more highly regarded than Isle of Dread. Heroes from the mainland sail in search of treasure and monster and the chance to open a new trade route to lands unknown.
The fighter comes as conquistador, 100mg Avodart, the cleric as missionary, the thief as treasure hunter, the mage as researcher, the elf as.., Avodart australia. well, an elf. Avodart mexico, The heroes of the Setting Formerly Known as The Known World may have all sorts of motivations and goals as they invade and explore this alien wilderness.
But what about natives, Buy Avodart No Prescription. Typical runs of the Isle of Dread treat the natives in a handful of ways: they are the hired manpower of the explorers. They act as guides before the jungle gets too thick and dangerous. And, 200mg Avodart, in dire situations, once the supply of mooks back on the ships get exhausted, 1000mg Avodart, may be used in the pool of bodies to reroll dead characters from. I've read of some parties that explored the Isle of Dread and by the end of the campaign, maybe one of the original party was left, leading a band of characters rolled up from natives because everyone else was dead, Avodart india. Buy Avodart No Prescription, But what is the motivation for that. And why continue once the last of the original heroes has been killed. That pretty much spells the end of the exploratory expedition. 50mg Avodart, So, here's my idea for a new take on Isle of Dread. Now, I'm sure this has been done before lots of times, Avodart japan, just it doesn't get blogged about a lot.
All player characters are drawn from the natives, Buy Avodart No Prescription. Classes are restricted to those available in the villages, 10mg Avodart, namely fighter and cleric. I know that multi-classing is a no-no in b/x, but I think I might allow it for magic users; I'll go into that later.
Rather than run it at "Expert" levels, 20mg Avodart, all characters start at level 1. The scene is set by the arrival of mysterious strangers on the island. Buy Avodart No Prescription, They come bringing all sorts of wonders and treasures. Avodart craiglist, All of these new arrivals will be low to mid level except for their leader, who should be level 5-8, perhaps depending upon his or her class.
The first major variable in this campaign will be the expedition leader's class, Avodart usa. This will shape some of his goals and attitudes regarding the isle of dread. A fighter will likely be more interested in exploration, Avodart us, treasure, or colonization, a cleric in prosyletizing and establishing missions, a thief in getting as much loot as possible with less interest in long-term position, 40mg Avodart, and magic user probably in studying the lost civilization. These are just some ideas: these expedition leaders can have any number of motivations, all of which will shape the direction of the campaign, Buy Avodart No Prescription.
As the mysterious strangers appear in the village, 750mg Avodart, they ask for the help of villagers. They're looking for volunteers, but are willing to hire people on.
As a native of the Isle of Dread, Avodart coupon, your equipment may be limited by your culture and your resources. This means you're primarily going to be restricted to very light or no armor and the wooden and leather shields of your people. Buy Avodart No Prescription, At some point, you may grow used to the foreign weapons and armor of these strange newcomers, but for some time would suffer severe disadvantages until you became accustomed to them. 250mg Avodart, Being a native warrior might even be treated as a separate class as a traditional fighter, complete with weapon and armor restrictions, though using fighter's level tables. Native weapons would include spears, Avodart overseas, both thrown and melee, bows, Avodart ebay, and other weapons described in the module as being used by the islanders.
Native clerics would likely be more like witch doctors than the traditional healer/tank. They would only wear the armor and equipment of their culture. They also might often clash with any clerics who have arrived on their shores, Buy Avodart No Prescription. There is any number or reasons why a native acolyte would go adventuring, Avodart canada, though. Collecting items for medicine bags, 150mg Avodart, observing the ways of the newcomers, proving ones' worth to the gods through a rite of passage into the heart of the island, so on and so forth.
I'm also inclined to include magic users, Avodart uk, but in a very different way, more akin to something from AD&D than B/X. 500mg Avodart, If there is a magic user among the foreign explorers, particularly if the leader is a magic user, that magic user might be willing to do some teaching were his life saved by a heroic native with a propensity for learning. Buy Avodart No Prescription, First, you might want to decide whether or not the inhabitants of the Isle of Dread are literate. I'm assuming they're not, 30mg Avodart. A native interested in becoming a magic user would need to be taught how to read and write. This may be accomplished by a series of intelligence checks over time. Avodart paypal, Once the individual learns to read, he or she may also be taught "read magic". A native cleric or fighter who is taught magic in this way drops their old class (though they keep their saves and to hit, at least until the new magic user class advancement catches up) and begins to advance as though they were a level 1 magic user, Buy Avodart No Prescription. A cleric who becomes a magic user in this way is considered to have abandoned the old ways, and may be shunned by other native clerics. He or she will also lose any cleric abilities.
Here's a thought: to abrogate the need for spellbooks, natives magic users begin to tatoo their spells all over their bodies, and possibly the bodies of their fellows.
You can't work a campaign by simply having the natives tag along with the explorers. At some point, the leader isn't going to be there, and the natives may be on their own deep in the jungles of the Isle. But finding motivation for natives to go exploring their own island shouldn't be hard. It will depend on the motives of the explorers, which will be up to you as the DM, but the Isle of Dread is written to have endless possibilities.

By Mark: Buy Deltasone No Prescription, I just aquired a giant box full of common and uncommon Magic: The Gathering cards, and as I was sorting through them, I realized I was creating whole stories in my head based on the cards I drew. The art on MTG cards is simply stunning, 40mg Deltasone, Deltasone coupon, and worth picking up a booster for just to look at.
Anyway, 50mg Deltasone, 20mg Deltasone, as I was looking over these cards, I decided to plan a whole D&D adventure based on random drawing of Magic cards, Deltasone australia. Deltasone mexico, I decided to draw three cards representing the plot, three cards representing important NPCs and monsters, 250mg Deltasone, 750mg Deltasone, and one card depicting the Big Bad Evil Guy of the session. The results were pretty spectacular, Deltasone usa.
Plot: Walking Corpse, Sewer Shambler, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker
Important NPC: Knight Of Obligation, Rust Scarab, Midnight Guard
BBEG: Vile Rebirth
[caption id="attachment_7308" align="alignright" width="300"] Knight of Obligation by Ryan Barger[/caption]
Okay, so, both the Walking Corpse and Sewer Shambler are zombies, while Mwonvuli Beast Tracker is a human, as is the Knight of Obligation (a noble-looking knight on a horse) and the Midnight Guard (a town watch type character), Buy Deltasone No Prescription. Deltasone canada, The Rust Scarab is a 4/5 creature (fairly powerful), so it's not a scarab-sized scarab, 500mg Deltasone, 150mg Deltasone, but something more akin to a rust monster. Finally, 100mg Deltasone, Deltasone us, Vile Rebirth is a spell that allows you to take a creature from your graveyard (discard pile), remove it from the game, 1000mg Deltasone, Deltasone overseas, and spawn a zombie into the game.
I'm muddling this over, Deltasone paypal, Deltasone uk, and I think I've got it.
The PCs are traveling though a fairly uninhabited region, 30mg Deltasone, 10mg Deltasone, when they meet up with a ranger traveling in the same direction. Buy Deltasone No Prescription, He tells you that he's received news that in the village further down the road, villagers have mysteriously been vanishing without a trace. He intends to investigate, Deltasone ebay, Deltasone india, and invites the players to join him.
The players arrive in the village, Deltasone craiglist, 200mg Deltasone, where the magistrate of the village, a paladin on horseback, Deltasone japan, approaches the heroes and assures them that everything is fine. He has it handled. The players, naturally, stick around to investigate.
After some investigation, they find evidence that the missing villagers have been drug off into the sewer, Buy Deltasone No Prescription. Below, they find a few zombies infesting the tunnels, before stumbling upon a hidden sanctuary. There, the Paladin has given in to dark magic and is performing a vile ritual, killing villagers and raising them again as zombies. He intends to turn the village into his own army, and overthrow the local lord.
The players stop the anti-paladin, and save the village. Buy Deltasone No Prescription, Now, they just need to tell the villagers of their loss...
See. So easy. The next set of Magic is called Theros, and is based on Greek mythology (one of my favorite subjects). There should be some great adventures to spawn from that.

No RX Hgh, I know I may be double dipping here, but I'd like to hear some thoughts on the topic of character gender in game. Now, 1000mg Hgh, 500mg Hgh, Dungeon Bastard once said something to the effect that in a game where you have people pretending to be elves and dwarves and halflings, what's so different about someone playing a character of a different gender, 10mg Hgh. 250mg Hgh, Now, I will totally cop to giving a fellow gamer shit for playing a little girl wizard in Exalted once, Hgh usa, 750mg Hgh, but that had more to do with my hatred of the wunderkind archetype and the fact that back then I'd have probably found any reason to give the guy shit, cuz I was a lot crappier dude back then, Hgh canada. 50mg Hgh, But nowadays, I'd be a lot more open minded about someone wanting to play a character of a different gender, 200mg Hgh, Hgh paypal, so long as they weren't going out of their way to be super creepy about it ("I take off all my clothes to maximize my dex bonus. Do the monsters think I'm hot?")
But the thought I had a few days back at Cirsova had less to do with picking and playing a character of a different sex and more with dealing with the circumstances of a character having their sex/gender changed by unnatural means, 30mg Hgh. It is typically included as a gag, a trick played on the player by the GM for laughs as part of a trap (such as the Tomb of Horror's Arch of Reversal) or as part of a list of random bad effects from poisons or wild surges or such, with "target/caster changes gender" listed alongside effects such as "target/caster turns invisible", "target/caster turns to stone", "target/caster turns astral", etc, No RX Hgh. 100mg Hgh, But gender is not a binary status ailment; it's a defining part of who we are and how we identify ourselves and relate to others.
If we go by conventions of classic comedy, Hgh craiglist, Hgh india, there are four possible "good" outcomes (a 2x2 grid) for such a character that satisfy the requirements of a happy ending. The first variable would be the character's gender by the end of the tale, Hgh ebay. 20mg Hgh, The character would either come to accept their new gender and the way they now relate to the world, or the character would manage to reverse the switch to restore the original paradigm, Hgh overseas. No RX Hgh, The other variable, of course, would be the gender of the character's romantic interest with whom he/she could end his/her tale. 150mg Hgh, One possibility would be the opposite of character's original gender (perhaps a relationship prior to the switch?). The other would be the opposite of the character's current gender, 40mg Hgh, Hgh mexico, a heterosexual relationship developed after the switch or homosocial romantic tension alleviated in the heteronormative society by the switch. Now, Hgh uk, Hgh us, I'm assuming a fairly typical D&D type fantasy setting here, of course; all of this goes out the window in a setting such as in Roger Zelazny's Lord of Light, Hgh japan, Hgh coupon, where characters go around changing bodies and gender ever so often on a whim.
Has anyone had a character who had their gender switched involuntarily, Hgh australia. How did you roleplay it. Did you play it straight or for laughs. Did your character find a way to lift the curse, were they forced to grudgingly live out their life as someone that they were not, or did they come to accept themself.

Allopurinol For Sale, Too often, a "Random Encounter" is seen as a combat encounter, one where a wandering monster stumbles upon your party and proceeds to eat your NPC companions before you even make it to the doors of the dungeon.
Random encounters can be so much more than that. 1000mg Allopurinol, I'd like to look at two types of random encounters, beginning with the aforementioned combat encounter.
I find myself completely avoiding random combat encounters when running 4e, 150mg Allopurinol. Combat takes far too long within the system to waste a half hour (or more) on a fight with a wandering owlbear.
However, in other editions, including D&D Next, random combat encounters are much more viable, as you can start and finish a combat in about 15 minutes (based on your level and the power of a monster), Allopurinol For Sale. 750mg Allopurinol, The problem with random encounters is the... well... randomness of it, 200mg Allopurinol. You're walking down a well beaten path when... Allopurinol For Sale, wait for it... Allopurinol ebay, (rolls dice, consults table) you are set upon by a Slaad. Your players know you've just rolled them up an encounter that has no bearing on the story, Allopurinol overseas. Things that have no bearing on the story should be nixed, 20mg Allopurinol, right out.
However, if, 40mg Allopurinol, before the game begins, Allopurinol australia, you randomly roll on some tables and determine that the third night out, they run across a bugbear. Now you have a few moments to come up with why this bugbear is out here in the forest before your players even sit down at the table, Allopurinol For Sale. Perhaps there's a goblin camp nearby, Allopurinol usa, and this bugbear was on patrol. 100mg Allopurinol, Perhaps he was separated from his raiding party.
Combat encounters should be meaningful. Placing a random monster in the forest should tell the players that this forest is teeming with enemies, 30mg Allopurinol, and that they should be careful. Allopurinol For Sale, It should tell them that they're closer to their destination, as they run into more and more frequent patrols of kobolds. 250mg Allopurinol, Bottom line. Roll up those random encounters beforehand.
In non-combat encounters, 10mg Allopurinol, players may encounter NPCS, Allopurinol us, events or other situations that may or may not be critical to the adventure at hand. Unlike combat, I don't mind throwing tons of these at the players, Allopurinol uk, even when unimportant to the plot. Random social encounters can breathe life into the setting, Allopurinol For Sale. Allopurinol canada, DMG 42 has some really fantastic random encounters, shown here. I've used a few myself, Allopurinol india, and they're excellent. Allopurinol japan, Just like combat encounters, social encounters, even if simply describing a couple of merchants walking by and talking, Allopurinol coupon, or seeing a rogue cutting purses, 50mg Allopurinol, should have a point. They may not be integral to the plot, but they should never feel random and useless, 500mg Allopurinol. Allopurinol For Sale, That rogue you see. He'll turn up later to cut your purse if you don't stop him now. Allopurinol craiglist, Those merchants were talking about the upcoming mid-summer festival, which happens to coincide with your big plot point coming up. All random encounters can tie into your plot, Allopurinol mexico, or create new subplots. Allopurinol paypal, I advise rolling these up beforehand as well, as it gives you time to place them firmly within your setting and story, and avoid freezing up, trying to come up with something on the fly. There are some great random tables found in the latest D&D adventure, Murder in Baldur's Gate, Allopurinol For Sale. I suggest picking it up, if for nothing else than being a great resource for city design and city building.
Random encounters don't have to be random. They can provide fantastic opportunities for both the DM and players to roleplay and interact in new and dynamic ways, and provide subtle ways of furthering the plot. As Bridget and I play a little 4e in Baldur's Gate, I'll let you know how our random encounters go.
