The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 30 – Best Playing/DMing experience

30 Day Challenge

Hmm, there have been so many that I have a hard time narrowing it down to one. Some of my favorites as a player include: When Aeduin threw himself into a pillar of fire to save someone (thus becoming the Smoke-Eye, changing from bard to Cleric of Occipitus) When Thelisn became a bodak PC and … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 30 – Best Playing/DMing experience

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 27 – Favorite Curse or Cursed Item

30 Day Challenge

I am perhaps overly fond of cursed items. As a DM, anyway. I find them amusing and when I DM, I have thrown quite a few of them at my adventurers. It’s never powerful cursed items, just little things that will cause mischief or annoy. My favorite, however, has to be the infamous Belt of … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 27 – Favorite Curse or Cursed Item

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 26 – Favorite Mundane Item

30 Day Challenge

I don’t really give too much thought to mundane items. They are just the essentials that sit on your character sheet, barely noticed or acknowledged except on rare occasion. About the only common exception is rope. Every character I have ever created must have rope. Usually 100′ of silk rope if I can carry it … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 26 – Favorite Mundane Item

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 24 – Favorite Spell

30 Day Challenge

As a PC, my all time favorite is the cleric spell Flamestrike. That spell is frickin awesome. Half of it is fire damage and half of it is divine damage which bypasses just about any damage reduction. As a DM, I’m overly fond of Silence and Greater Dispel Magic. Nothing like making PC spellcasters epically … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 24 – Favorite Spell

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 23 – Least Favorite Monster Overall

30 Day Challenge

Gnoll rangers. It’s a funny story. Well, OK, it wasn’t all that funny. You had to be there. Suffice it to say if the rest of your party is trapped behind an iron grate, don’t wander off to scout the area while they’re working to get through to your side. Just don’t do it. Don’t. … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 23 – Least Favorite Monster Overall

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 22 – Favorite Monster Overall

30 Day Challenge

That’s a tough one, but I’d probably have to say the girallons. Nothing more terrifying than a 4 armed ape that can literally rip party members in half if they get a good grip. We had one encounter where just a couple of the things really beat the snot out of our party. It wasn’t … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 22 – Favorite Monster Overall

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 21 – Favorite Dragon/Dragon Type

30 Day Challenge

As far as a specific dragon goes, the hands down winner is Tiamat/Takhisis. This is probably due to my great love for the Dragonlance books & modules as well as the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon that I watched as a kid. And yes I know she’s a deity and not strictly a dragon, but I … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 21 – Favorite Dragon/Dragon Type

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 20 – Favorite Humanoid/Giant/Fey

30 Day Challenge

Fey annoy the crap out of me. Stupid tree-huggers. :) Of these, my favorites are the fire giants. Tough, smart and not taking any crap from anyone. This goes back to the original 1st ed. G-series modules “Against the Giants” (G1, G2, G3). These were fantastic modules that ended in the “Hall of the Fire … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 20 – Favorite Humanoid/Giant/Fey
