For The Love Of XP Part 2: Adding It To A Game

For The Love Of XP Part 2: Adding It To A Game

Greetings all! Tonight I have the sequel to an article I wrote a few weeks ago titled, For The Love Of XP. In it I go over experience points and how they have been used in various games and how the concepts of level and XP have disappeared from RPGs. I love many of these mechanics, but the lack of XP, for me, is something troublesome. I have spent a long time developing alternatives to strict combat XP and personal…

Libris Monstrum #18: Slaadi Revisited

Today we are heading back into one of the monsters that is specific to the game of Dungeons & Dragons: the slaadi.

Re-Skinning Vampires Part 1

Re-Skinning Vampires Part 1

I have been meaning to write this article to get back into the re-skinning series for a while now. I wasn’t sure what it would be about initially, but when I did the Libris Monstrum about vampires and we talked about them on the illithid episode of the Untamed Rant, I just couldn’t help myself from going there for this article. In thinking about and planning for some vampire re-skins I ended up deciding that this would have to be…

Good Time To Start Luxarrah!

Good Time To Start Luxarrah!

Today is the release of the latest episode of our Luxarrah campaign. It has been a while since the last episode, but today’s includes some recap.
