If you're playing in my D&D campaign, please don't read this

I will be DMing a D&D campaign for the first time ever and I'm looking for some help/guidance on making this as enjoyable as possible for my players, mostly in terms of creating scenarios and encounters that are best resolved without combat. [more inside]

Old People Playing Old Games: The Campaign

Well, we were successful, and I pulled off my birthday party by DMing a 1st Edition rules run through Steading of the Hill Giant Chief without too much trouble. Now, my players are well and good hooked, and we're talking about actually running a campaign. Some things came up, however, that some other old school gamers may be able to help with. [more inside]

Old People Playing Old Games

I'm planning an old-school 1st Edition AD&D gaming session for April. I haven't played AD&D, or tabletop gamed, for nearly 20 years. I still have all the materials required to set up and play the game with friends, but I'm worried that I'll be under-prepared for the session. Do you have any suggestions for ramping up?

What is "roll for initiative" and should I do it?

I have never played D&D before, but last week's Community looked super fun and interesting (not to mention, what a great episode) I've hit up some friends who used to play and there's some interest about getting a game going. But I literally know nothing, and don't know if I'm going to like it. How do I proceed? [more inside]

Cool storylines involving Eberron's industries/politics/economic disparities?

Eberron veterans! Help a DM (new to Eberron, not to DMing) out. I'm looking for intriguing plot hooks that specifically exploit two of the setting's distinctive characteristics: the treatment of magic as everyday technology, and the huge rich/poor gap (i.e., the extent to which the dragonmarked houses dominate). Share your stories, unused campaign hooks, or idle musings. Our preferred focus is role-playing, not roll-playing. [more inside]

Where can I find good D&D podcasts?

I need a good D&D-themed podcast. The only one I've found that's still updating is a recording of a game group's actual sessions, but that's not what I want. Ideally, it'll be about running a good game, creating campaigns, &c. Any links for me? [more inside]
