The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 19 – Favorite Elemental/Plant/Construct

30 Day Challenge

Love the shield guardians. Delban had one for a while and it came in quite handy for saving his life multiple times. I also am fascinated by the more unusual golems. For instance, in 3e there was a stained glass golem that was pretty cool and Pathfinder has added a few like crystal golems and … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 19 – Favorite Elemental/Plant/Construct

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 18 – Favorite Planar Being/Creature

30 Day Challenge

This covers a wide band of creatures, so it’s hard to pick. I mean you’ve got celestials, formians, demons, devils, eladrin, djinni, mephits, nightmares, tieflings, slaads, and many, many more. How can anyone pick from among those? Let’s just pick one at random and say hell-hound. Here, doggy, doggy, doggy! Good dog! Uh, I mean, … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 18 – Favorite Planar Being/Creature

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 17 – Favorite Animal/Insect/Arachnid

30 Day Challenge

Driders…. Always driders. I love and hate those bastards. Yeah, I know, they’re not an animal or insect or technically an arachnid, but close enough for me. Though, when we ran through City of the Spider Queen we did run into a massive spider or two that made for some fun combats. Still, though… driders… … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 17 – Favorite Animal/Insect/Arachnid

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 16 – Favorite Ooze/Aberrant Creature

30 Day Challenge

Oh, another tough one. It’s a toss-up between beholders and illithid. They are both a lot of fun from a game stand point. And by fun I mean “AH! AH! AH! AH! RUN! RUN! RUN! RUN!”. Seriously though, one of the most fun adventures we have run was the Illithiad modules. Although, the party did … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 16 – Favorite Ooze/Aberrant Creature

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 14 – Favorite NPC

30 Day Challenge

As a player, I think my favorite NPCs would be a tossup between Lord Soth from Ravenloft and all the various beings who believed they were Keraptis in White Plume Mountain. As a DM, my two favorite NPCs were Gharaleth Axom from The Speaker in Dreams and Halaster the Mad from Expedition to Undermountain. Yeah, … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 14 – Favorite NPC

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 13 – Favorite Trap/Puzzle

30 Day Challenge

What’s the best way to put this? I HATE TRAPS AND PUZZLES! There, I said it and I won’t take it back. There is not one single, solitary trap or puzzle I’ve enjoyed or liked as a player. None, whatsoever. Whenever I encounter a trap or puzzle as a PC, I let the other PCs … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 13 – Favorite Trap/Puzzle

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 12 – Favorite Dungeon Type/Location

30 Day Challenge

My favorite dungeon types are old school dungeon crawls. Just a place underground with a bunch of levels and a bunch of halls and rooms on each level. First adventure I played was The Keep on the Borderlands. That style has always been my favorite. Castles, citadels, towers, cities, sewers, forests and whatever else take … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 12 – Favorite Dungeon Type/Location

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 11 – Favorite Adventure You Ran

30 Day Challenge

As a DM, the one I’ve enjoyed the most was running Return to Undermountain and Expedition to the Ruins of Greyhawk back to back as one story arc. It was a blast and I had a lot of fun as the DM in that arc. My second favorite DM track was running the Speaker in … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 11 – Favorite Adventure You Ran

The D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 10 – Craziest in-game experience

30 Day Challenge

There have been so many, it’s really hard to pick. Here are a few highlights, both as player and as DM: The endless jokes about being a one-armed paladin, including jokes that my mount should be a three-legged horse The time I was DM and a barmaid lured the fighter Jhon Tsaran to the barn … Read moreThe D&D 30 Day Challenge – Day 10 – Craziest in-game experience
