About this blog

Basically this blog is about my view on various topics of yesterday and today. My style is to show a fast and quick pace to a game, not slowed or bogged down by rules. The style of doing things, where if there wasn't a rule, the DM would make up the roll or have the player roll a d6 to solve the problem. Where ANYTHING can be done as long as you can dream it up! And remember, you rule the game, not the other way around! I was posting under "theEvilGM.com" but decided that while I had both links to TheEvilGM and TheEvilDM and most of my online presence was based on TheEvilDM, to move to this URL now.

Mazes & Perils - Necromancer Class design and thoughts

I'm always working, and always creating things for my games, but the last week had me exploring a class that I've always enjoyed creating in whatever D&D game I am playing. 

The Necromancer!

Here is the sheet printed out compared to two sized note pads
