Roleplaying Tips for game masters for all role-playing systems The Mother Of All Character Questionnaires Use this list of questions to construct or add to your own characrer questionnaire. The questions cover different genres and types of details, so feel free to exclude or modify to suit your group. Questions are divided into broad categories. And similar questions and bunched into groups within their category. For brevity, I cut out most follow-up explanation type questions, such as "Why", "how come", and so on.

Polygon Map Generation demo The simplest way to explore the maps is to click Random repeatedly. Try the various Island Shape, Point Selection, and View options. Feel free to use these maps for any purpose, including commercial use. This is a map generator I wrote in 2010 for a game; I’m not working on it anymore, but all the code is available so that you can download and modify it for your own needs. Home PAX East Live Game: 2014 When last we left our heroes, they had defeated one of the most terrible foes the Realms had ever seen, and carved out a little space in the city of Waterdeep that they could call their own. Now a new opportunity… err… adventure beckons! Word has reached the Acquisitions Incorporated headquarters of some dragon eggs that are in great peril. The Group Jerry Holkins (Tycho from Penny Arcade): Omin Dran, CEO of Acquisitions Incorporated.

Treasure Tables Active from 2005 to 2007 and dedicated entirely to system-neutral GMing advice, Treasure Tables was one of the earliest RPG blogs. It was also the precursor to Gnome Stew, so we decided the best way to keep all of its content -- over 750 articles and more than 7,500 comments -- accessible to as many GMs as possible was to move it here, which we did in 2012. Comments are turned off, just they as were when Treasure Tables closed in 2007. The GMing material and discussion archived below was originally featured on TreasureTables.org. Enjoy! List of all RPG classes Bishop, Lord, Valkyrie and Gadgeteer from the Wizardry computer game series (also has it's own take on many things, check the Samurai and Ranger out).(look in the character build pages) and I suppose that's more metagame analysis, so:Bishop, Master of none, but capable of all harnessing all magics. Such broad "specialization" costs the price of less skill unless they ignore one or more of the varieties of magic (here, Alchemy, Magery, Psionics, and Divine).Lord: Dual Wielding Paladin-esque character. Wears heavy armor and heals naturally over time (at first level, it's like 1hp a minute). Also gain access to Divine magic later on.Valkyrie: Pole-arm and Mace wielder.

Conditions - PFBeginner Conditions are effects that happen to characters and monsters, like being deafened by a loud noise, entangled by a giant spider’s web, fatigued from a long day of work, or sickened by poison or disease. This section explains the rules for these conditions and things that may cause them. If more than one condition affects a character, apply them all. Character Lifepath (3.5e Variant Rule) A Character Lifepath is not a new or revolutionary idea in the RPG circles. In fact, I do believe most of us over at EN World were pretty stumped when we couldn't readily find a D&D themed lifepath table. This entry looks to build one. And if you are reading this wondering what a Lifepath is - it is simply a progression of tables, each with an assortment of events, items, attitudes and other character defining items, that one randomly rolls on to come up with a varied and fun sketch of a character's life prior to the beginning of the game. A player can then flesh this out to have a fully functioning character background.
