A Visit From the Arbiter: Tables for organizing an otherworldly embassy from beings intent on keeping our society exactly as it is

Have you all missed by D&D blog? Well, I'm blogging on it right now...

Garm Bays Loudly is a new scenario for Beyond the Fence, Below the Grave. It's about a fjord, a forest, a shipwreck, and treating your neighbors nicely. Download it nooow.

Garm bays loudly is about the violent economics of the Viking age, the terror of winter, a slave revolt, respecting your neighbors, and the dangers of not loving your children enough.

Does anybody want to read about the fairy tale inspired D&D campaign I've been running? Now is your chance!

If you've ever been interested in the DIY RPG scene, but not quite known where to get started, here's a handy list of resources I put together:

New post! For the last few months, I've been playing D&D using the original GLoG, here are my reflections on the parts of the original rules which don't get a lot of attention.

I am looking for a webcomic to read.

Big fan of long running slice of life stuff. Something * Positive is my #1, but also enjoy the heck outta Questionable Content, Girls with Slingshots, and the David Willis oeuvre.

Good writing > good art today. Long archives are a plus.

Boosts requested.

It's Friday and we all know what that means! Time to follow, follow, follow and NEVER ARRIVE! #followfriday

Gasper the Aged - Follow this bent stick of a person to hear stories about "why this part of town always smells like onions (it's 'cause of kids)" and how "buildings used to be taller" as their head sinks to the ground

The Multi-Limbed Drowning Array - Elegantly designed, worth following to the pond's bottom ... if that's your thing.

Nobody else - That's right. We said it. S'official.

Hate that the stores are already putting up anticoagulant socks that we're supposed to hang by the fireplace for Dracula.

It's only just November!

my players finally gave in to desperation and ate the party member who has been transformed into a pig

Let me be clear, it is the players' fault if somebody dies or is turned into a frog. If they had paid better attention or asked better questions they would have known that the witch was only kidnapping children because of her fear of aging.

I have to defend the usefulness of a petroleum consultant in a magical 14th century setting to my DM but I'm up for it.

So once my players get out of the fairy world I would like to start a civil war plot line with factions looking something like this:
The Parliament: Allied with magical technology barons
The Monarchy: Heavily indebted, few allies
The Northmen: Pagan invaders from the northeast
The Communists: Disgruntled urban workers and peasants displaced by the enclosure movement, they practice druidic Marxism

Unaligned groups: The fairies, the giants, the witches, the hidden queendom of Guinevere

I should really stop calling the game I'm currently running 'D&D' because the only thing directly D&D-ish about it is the 6 core stats
