I've been trying to remember a book quotation all day. It's said by somebody, in sympathy, about someone else, and it's something like "his love was strong, and he did not understand". I think it's from Dragonlance, and maybe about someone who's died? But I can't find it, even by searching. Anybody got any ideas?

I now have 35. And four clip-on doors, and two long barred prison doors. I'm pretty pleased with the outcome, I just need to do yet more...

Stuart's 2.5D dungeon tiles. They came out looking OK, I think, so my approach works, hooray! This is only the first seven, though. Now I gotta make, like, a hundred more.

Random thought: in a game based on d20, what would it be like if the damage you did is the amount you exceed the AC by? Rather than separate damage rolls? I'm sure someone's already thought of this and had a big list of reasons why not to do it (or has tried it in other RPGs). It doesn't cater for different weapons being more damaging, of course, but it'd certainly speed up combat rolls.

redrawn the Redbrand Hideout from Lost Mine of Phandelver a bit so it's entirely made up of 2x2 dungeon tiles, so when I spend this weekend making tiles with Stuart's Grand Plan For Making Modular Tiles, I'll be able to use them :-)

This weekend, I'm going to try actual physical maps for D&D and miniatures. Paper miniatures, mind (using a bulldog clip as the base) and greyscale maps (which I have printed in many sheets on my A4 laser printer and am now sellotaping together into one map). We shall see how it goes and whether it's more effort than it's worth!

Mad idea for a campaign setting from a D&D homebrew competition I entered: the Octagem. Six crystal spheres each half-full of liquid gemstone that enhances magic, in which the people live in vast floating cities of tethered boats and occasionally go to war with one another.

are people rolling a d20 for ability scores rather than 4d6 drop the lowest now? Just had to explain to someone a bit about probability to say why d20 is bad.

This flowchart about choosing a D&D character class is rather tongue-in-cheek but is actually really useful to show to a new player who wants to get a sense of what they want to play.

Don't do this! Why, why would you do this? How can anyone think this is reasonable??

I wish downloadable D&D adventures and rulebook supplements and the like were available as epubs as well as two-column PDFs so they were easily readable on a phone.

Yay, there was a homebrew competition on one of the Discord servers I'm on to make a magical item with some sort of eldritch horror connection, and I won! With the Lantern of Leng, which I plan to use in a future game.
Light up your life -- or your enemies' lives -- with the Lantern.

Yay, my players have solved the first room in the puzzle dungeon they're in! Good work, people.

A few weeks ago I saw a wiki which produced automatic lists of things for RPGs, based on tables posted to a Reddit about d100. Now I can't find it again. Does anyone know what it was I saw?

"Roll a Strength check with advantage," I was told, and so I rolled two natural 20s. On the one hand: World's Strongest Man. On the other: I bet that's all my nat20s for the week used up now

Unsure whether to try to start a pbp campaign or do a bunch of pbp oneshots to, essentially, "audition" players. I don't like the idea of doing that, but equally I want smart committed players, not people who'll wreck immersion because they think it's funny, or who will demand their custom subclass because they've minmaxed it. Very unsure how to proceed.

You whisper, “I’m sorry. I had a dream about it.” It is a dream, and it has a horrible ending. You are a vampire, and you are the subject of a spell. You have a total of 10 hit points, and you must be within 60 feet of the target for the spell to occur. The target must make a Charisma saving throw. On a failed save, the target takes 1d6 necrotic damage and loses all its hit points.

From a list of D&D spells generated by an AI. They're a weird mix of nonsensical and funny
