What's this Blog about?
Its about gaming, but D&D is top on my list, from D&D 5e, Pathfinder to good old AD&D 1e (where my roots come from!). I'm an Evil DM, I have been for many years, to the point folks enjoy my games and style but fear things in game. Paranoia is great and fuels a lot of awesome roleplaying situations with characters in game. Nothing is as it seems in my games, so feel free to show up in my game with your books and TRY to rules lawyer me, it will only result in another character soul taken. Remember you are the Dungeon Master and ANYTHING can be done as long as you can dream it up because you rule the game, not the other way around! IF the book doesn't list it, doesn't mean its not possible, think folks, you are the DM, do as you please, its your world! Over 1000+ character souls taken as of this date!

The Evil GM - Details... details...is it in the Details?


How important are details in your campaigns or adventures? It's easy to miss a detail or two for certain things while running a game.

We've all done it, we've improvised a scene for our players because it just "felt right" to do it at the time. Maybe it was an NPC, that turned out to have a riddle to help the characters move forward, maybe it was a special way a magical item was uncovered.

I've done it many times and I will admit, a lot of those time I never wrote down what I did. Did this come back to bite me in the ass? Sure did. 

So it's important to write down details of important events, or things you improvise in your games.

Has something happened to you like this?
