Hawke's d20 Hit Location and Critical Hit Severity System

by admin — last modified Aug 17, 2015 07:50 PM

Posted by Hawke at Sep 26, 2014 07:55 PM - Filed under: DnD, 5th Edition, Dungeons & Dragons, Original Dungeons & Dragons, D&D Next, rpg, OD&D, D&D - How many times have you rolled that d20, added the bonuses, and had an awesome total (though not a “Nat 20”), and thought “What a waste of a great roll” because then you just roll your normal damage dice. Wouldn't it be nice if the greater the d20 hit roll, there would be a gradient of increasingly more severe consequences to the target being hit?

Advice for beginning Game Masters / Dungeon Masters

by admin — last modified Aug 17, 2015 07:50 PM

Posted by Hawke at Oct 06, 2014 05:41 PM - missed a request for advice from an aspiring new DM at https://www.youtube.com/user/rpgresearch/discussion , so I thought I would replicate that here. As many other sites have done, you could put out a new article daily on advice for running games, but hopefully this is useful to some. Happy Gaming!

Great quote from 1983 D&D Red Box regarding Experience Points

by admin — last modified Aug 17, 2015 07:50 PM

Posted by Hawke at Nov 03, 2014 11:16 AM - Filed under: DnD, game system, Dungeons & Dragons, rules, Basic D&D, rpg, D&D - "You get a lot of experience for treasure, and NOT MUCH FOR KILLING MONSTERS" (emphasis added by me). "It's better to avoid killing, if you can, by tricking monsters or using magic to calm them down." - Page 12 of 1983 Players Manual of Dungeons & Dragons 1983 red box set.

Hawke's List of the Plethora of Role-Playing Games Currently

by admin — last modified Aug 17, 2015 07:49 PM

Posted by Hawke at Nov 03, 2014 09:56 PM - I'm concerned I'm overdoing it, and probably will have to back off after the holidays, but for now I am running a lot of RPG groups, streamlining my administrative processes of paperwork and such, planning for running games 5 days per week as a "job" as I get closer to RPG Research and RPG Therapeutics becoming a billable activity. For now, it's "just gaming" with some paperwork and process, here is a list of the many groups currently...

Photo of my Tabletop RPG Book Collection

by admin — last modified Aug 17, 2015 07:49 PM

It took several photos roughly pasted together to make it all fit, so it's less than ideal, but this gives some idea. And actually this is about a year out of date (more has been added since), but it gives some idea. At some point I want to lay them all out on the floor and have the full covers photographed, but that is currently a daunting task, so it will have to just be the bindings for for now. Enjoy!
