Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale

And no, it wasn’t a TPK…Also, the ranger/rogue and the fighter/rogue were gone and we had two substitute players: a halfling and a goliath barbarian. The battle against the demilich continued, with two new allies joining the fight! Upon joining, the goliath barbarianContinue reading “Rime of the Frostmaiden: The Finale”

This Was Supposed to Be a Different Post..

The original plan was to write a post about running a game for young children who are brand new to dungeons & dragons. Originally, I was supposed to be doing just that tonight. That did not happen.

TGAPP: Battle of Borest

We find the majority of the Inglorious Ingrates cradling and licking their wounds after their improvised assault on the goblin barracks in Borest.

As many of you may have read, I have an affinity for kids. I, myself, have a number of them. I love kids. When I began Adventures League where I used to live, it was really just to get my kids out of the house to give my wife a break (we didn’t have anyContinue reading “How to DM: DMing Kids”
