Just a reminder, pledges for the Dungeon Geomorph Dice Kickstarter project we mentioned are closing this week. It’s already fully funded, so if you pledge to the project, you will definitely get the dice. We thought we would also mention that there is a new $12 level pledge that gets you a deck of cards with all the maps instead of dice. These will be just as useable with the supplements we’re talking about developing for them. So if you’re not into the price, but like the idea, the card deck may be for you. And just to reiterate, we don’t have any financial connection to this project – only an enthusiasm for what we think is a really cool product. So go check it out!
Initiative Or What? had a cool article this week on different found objects that were useful as props for their D&D game. We especially like the idea to use novelty ice cube trays for casting 3D terrain decorations.
Many blogs were talking about the new season of Encounters that kicked off this week, but we especially liked the coverage that Gnome Stew gave to The Dark Legacy of Evard. We’ll be participating in at least some of this Encounters season, for the first time.
Eye of the Beholder, written by Greg Bilsland, had a great article on acting in character at the table. Whether it’s just using the word “I” versus “my character,” or using a funny accent, there are some great tips in this article for players and DMs alike.
In honor of the recent Free Comic Book Day, we thought we would also mention why you should be reading the D&D comic. Ok, not us. You can find the article over at RPG Musings. We look forward to the graphic novel collection next month.
Finally, in case you missed it, Benoit had a guest post over at Dungeon’s Master this week highlighting the Drow Cloud of Darkness for their Exploiting Racial Features series.
Until next week…. keep reading!
