Big problems

So, my little conversion project is moving a long steadily, but I seem to have hit a couple of problems here. My first issue is; if you gain a level as an Alchemist for instance, do you also get a spell level, just like if you gained a wizard level? I am leaning towards a No, since the character will attain a special ability, which is pretty powerful. The second issue is; when you reach Circle 3, you have access to two abilities. Now, do you get the both of them, or should I split them, and basically add more...

Expanding the Dragonlance Pantheon

I was reading a post over at the Dragonlance Forums where one of the users talks about expanding the pantheon and that made be remember a project I started some years ago. The idea was to collect all the weird references to other gods and entities and try to create a complete list of divine beings. Originally, I intended to create a list for Ansalon and one for Taladas, but as you can see below, I never quite finished it. Continent of Ansalon Greater Gods Gilean Knowledge N M Ionthas* Nihilism E M Mishakal Healing, beauty, life, blessing LG F...

New project

So, it turns out that I have some free time on my hands, and therefore I have decided to embark on another project, that might never come to fruition. I have started converting the Seven Secrets of Glantri into D&D 3.5 prestige classes. Now, I am not a big rules guy as such, for me it has always been about the story and the role playing game. However, I love to gain a new level as much as the next guy, and I have always liked the concept of prestige classes. I think these classes allow the player to develop...

Currently reading: JRR Tolkien

So, I finally found the time to catch up on my reading, and my first book this summer is The Children of Hurin by J.R.R Tolkien. The book has been edited by Tolkien’s son, since the author himself never finished it, however, that Tolkien feel is definitely there. The book takes place during the Morgoth days and follows primarily Turin the son of Hurin and his life from cradle to the grave. I don’t want to give any spoilers, so you will just have to go read it yourself. The book is quite dark and has some pretty horrendous aspects...

Looking for a gaming group around Roskilde

So, I have been a grumpy old man lately. Well, truth be told, I have been too old, too grumpy for too long. I have been complaining about the decline of roleplaying ranging from the lack of material to the lack of novels. Well, no more. Who needs Wizards’ to support a world in order to play it? Who needs novels to keep the passion going? I don’t it seems. Therefore, if there are any gamers around Roskilde, Denmark, who are interested in playing D&D shoot me an email. Ultimately I don’t care which rules or which world we use,...
