A dirty trick in D&D

I’ve taking over DMing duties for our Sunday D&D game. I noticed that all of the PCs, except for two, had 2 magic items apiece. So before the last session, I had those players browse the books and choose a magic item that they wanted. I said I would put it in that day’s scenario so they could find it.

Where, exactly, did I put it? In the hands of the cultists they would be fighting, of course! Bruce’s paladin even took a critical hit from the mage wielding Carl’s Staff of Magic Missles. Bloodied him in a single blow, I think!

I wonder what dirty trick I’ll come up with for this week’s D&D game?

How best to exchange info?

A follow-up to yesterday’s Dreamation discussion. I just posted this to the Forge thread discussing the new Dreamation policies:

Just this morning, I was thinking what games I might possibly run at the con. I thought “I like running Ganakagok, but I’m not sure I’d want to run it twice. Maybe Bill White’s in the same boat and we could split a slot.” This is all well and good for me, who knows Bill and can simply e-mail him. But not everyone has those same connections, or knows what others’ interests are. There ought to be somewhere that I could make this information known and seek out other GMs who could supplement my games, and vice versa.

Could we just add a page to the wiki to do this? Is there a better way?

So, folks out there who know technology better than I do, what are your thoughts on that last issue. What’s the best way to do this?

Where has the summer gone?

It can’t be August 12 already, can it? I packed up a bunch of Serial Homicide Unit and sent them off to GenCon with Michele. I hope everyone has a great con. Last year I was happy to get away from the stress of the big GenCon trip. This year I’m missing the opportunity to see everybody.

My summer’s been pretty quiet since DEXCON. Did some swimming. Watched some movies. Celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and baby showers. Did some last-minute layout for Mr. Edwards. Worked. Saw a Shakespeare play (Antony and Cleopatra) I had never seen before.

How has your summer been going?
