The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

Over the Thanksgiving holiday, I had an opportunity to continue a D&D 4e adventure we started a year ago. With this particular group, we have now met three times in 12 months and only worked through about 2/3 of the dungeon so far. But that’s not the fun part…

The fun part is that the . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Taking Charge of the Gaming Lesson Plan (RPG Blog Carnival)

The Gassy Gnoll: Where are we again? (Location, Location, Location – RPG Blog Carnival)

This month’s blog carnival was kicked off by Mike Bourke @ Campaign Mastery and I have to say it’s a doozy. Though “Location, Location, Location” may have originated in the real estate industry, it works amazingly well for fictional pursuits as well. Whether you’re designing a RPG campaign or writing a novel, you can’t go . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: Where are we again? (Location, Location, Location – RPG Blog Carnival)

The Gassy Gnoll: My Favorite NPCs (June RPG Blog Carnival)

As a GM, it’s your job to populate the world the PCs inhabit. This means not only defining the “where” that they live in, but also the “who” they interact with. A land with no people is deadly quiet and boring. And so our NPCs are born…

Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links – 10-MAR-2013

Wow it’s been a rough few weeks. Sick for a week. Traveling for work for a week. And came home with a cold for a week. I’d say it was time for the madness to end, but soccer season is starting for my wife and daughters so there’s no chance of that for a while. . . . → Read More: Ten Links in the Chain: Gaming Links – 10-MAR-2013

The Gassy Gnoll: GMs, We Salute You! (RPG Blog Carnival)

It was GM’s Day this week and the blog carnival topic is about “Epic Moments of GMing” so it must be time to talk about GMing! But what can I say?

The Gassy Gnoll: New Beginnings (January RPG Blog Carnival)

This month’s RPG blog carnival, running over at Kobold Enterprise, is all about new beginnings.

New beginnings are tough for this Gassy Old Gnoll. Once upon a time I was young and failure never entered my mind. Somehow as I’ve gotten older, a fear of failure has crept into my world view when I wasn’t . . . → Read More: The Gassy Gnoll: New Beginnings (January RPG Blog Carnival)
