Book of Sorrows campaign Podcast I put up for AD&D 1E fans of the RFI Podcast, my players came into a mysterious town, and when inside the tavern, I described the eating/bar area, and happened to describe one man in too much detail, but saying he was taller, slouched over and his face was hidden. While this man had nothing to do with what was going on, my players kept watching him and asking more and more about him, until they finally had to talk to him. Who's fault is this? Mine of course, I messed up, but as a great on the fly DM that I am, I quickly worked up a purpose to him being there and I kept adding more detail to him, by saying that once in a while they noticed his gloves were off and you saw a green scaly hand. Luckily my players did not bother much with him other then try talking to him, and walked away. But here is a lesson for all you DM's out there, be careful!
A couple of days ago, I took look at a really cool tool for a DM by Nerzagul called, "The Dungeon Master Toolkit". Feel free to go take a look that before reading this, don't worry I will wait. Done? Good! Well today is a follow up, as I found out Nerzugal released a new toolkit on RPGNOW, now named the GAME MASTER TOOLKIT and he's released this new one under the OGL version 1.0a.
Today I am going to take a look at a great resource for DM’s, Nerzugal’s Dungeon Master Toolkit. I’m sure quite a few people already know about this product – Heck it’s a Platinum Best Seller on the DM’s Guild site – but it’s PACKED with 100 pages of juicy goodness for Dungeon Masters of new and old to get something useful out of it.
