I don’t know about you but when I sit down for a one-shot game with a pregen character, I can’t always come up with a unique and interesting personality on the fly. Hex Games As you can see, we've redesigned the Hex web site for the first time in quite a while. With the new version of the site, we've tried to account for the new ways people use gaming websites in the age of social media, which means getting rid of things like the dedicated forums that for the last few years have mainly only served as bait for spammers. We've also done our best to integrate the site with things like Facebook and Twitter. The slider on the right edge of page points to our social media pages (mouse over to see our latest posts) and the one on the left lets you share content on popular sites.
The Welsh Piper » Hex-based Campaign Design (Part 2) Populating your Hexes deutsche Übersetzung The idea of developing your campaign through small, but ever-expanding, hex maps, was inspired by Greywulf’s Six sided gaming: Hex magic article. With Greywulf’s permission, I’ve expanded the concept a bit. Part 1 described how to size your beginning map and determine terrain.

100 Subjects for tavern chatter « The RPG Athenaeum (Author’s note: this started as a much smaller list, and quickly grew to a far longer list than intended. For this reason, the list has been reproduced as an Adobe pdf file, which can be downloaded here or on the downloads page.) Tavern gossip can be a great source of Dungeons & Dragons adventure leads, and more than one published adventure has begun with the heroes overhearing something over a tankard or two.
