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.

Plotting out encounters - "Encounter Squares"


Some people have been asking how I plan an encounter, however big the encounter may be for the game, I use the following square (see above) with colors. The colors is what I normally use in OneNote. I have this as a template in one tab and I keep copying and pasting it into various adventures as I write them for my DM notes.
